Guy down the bay is nice but a bit odd.

I mean he is still looken for the lefty monkey wrench we asked him for in 1996.

 

Few years ago he told me to come see his sign he made for a concert he was heading to.

 

So couple days later I was passing an he showed me the sign.

 

It read  "I LOVE YOU STEVIE!"

 

SO I ask, what concert ya going to  ~ Thinking it was 

maybe Fleetwood Mack n Stevie Nicks...?

 

Nope he said I am Stevie Wonder guy!!!

;)

 

I think of this moment a lot....Big Smiles!

Life:

 

My old 1996 Z71 musky truck lasted 22 years n 220 K miles. Had a big musky fish on her topper n my name n number...

Hit gas station by moms in North End St. Paul one day, filler up, paid n BS with owner and ready in truck about to split then see a young guy coming running up to me real fast.

Sit back a bit an relax, grab AMY my trusty Sapper as thought maybe he was nuts n looken for a throwdown.

Intead…"Hey man, Hey are you Musky Tom....." "Dude take me fishen some time, hey OK Musky Tom...  you are..Musky Tom right"?

 

Me" "Cool it friend, Lay low man, chill....I just stole this dam truck an am heading out a town, now back away will ya.."

: )

Kid turned pale, "What, Wait..Really, Oh %$#"

 

Me: "Naaaw, just messing man...relax." Sticking my hand out window......"KitKat?"   

 

_______________________________________________________________________________

 

Same station one winter night bout 5 was inside BS hackey with owner and kid comes flying in.

"Hey I think I need some water...Leaking all over under my truck man, #$%& can I get some water?"

Owner : "Sure, in back room there, garb all ya want"

Kid gone a bit, comes out n legs all soaked wet an he shouts.

"#$%&   #$%&  ~ Heck dude there is a Hole in this Bucket, WTF am I sposed to do now"

Owner, looks at me, smiles in his eyes, turns.... stone face straight looken at kid:  

"Get Yer Own Bucket"

Priceless!  : )

 

Turned out blown lower radiator hose. Few blocks away 10K auto parts store so helped kid out an on his way in hour but memory n friend 4 life.

You had to be there...

: )

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Tom after sneezing FIVE times sitting on dock watch'n cork :  "I hate Boogers"

Bonnie sitting next to me:    "Yeah, Me to..."

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Hound stuff happens all the time bet to you also:

Having hound pal's of two or four at a crack has always been how we live.

People in public come round an see they are Retrievers....so we get the "Can I pet yer dogs" "Can we get a hug"

I smile n say "Don't ask me, ask them"

Odd looks ya get.

 

Other times people ask..."Do the dogs Bite/"

I have always just said..."Well not me, but you do as you think best"

 

WHAT!!!

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Guy worked for me was having troubles at home an not built to do many things at once in head an with hands but claime dot know it all.  ; )

Had him stay late with me one night an do mini inventory on few loads of gear came in an make sure everything is what lading says came in n then put in correct place to load out later.

I went into meeting a bit, locked up front of warehouse...came out find note on my desk.

 

"Dude, here are the numbers you wanted....They are all F'd up, but I have to leave an you know I hate this ^%$# so won't be coming back...sorry.   Clint"

 

Laughed a big bunch...finished what stared an he was right. FAll F;d up for sure.   : )

 

Showed note to full crew in AM an they busted gut.

Big Boss smiled an says..."Well you were right T. Give him a shot an see what he got and shows nothing talk so help him walk."

Fun junk.

=================================================================================================

 

Took a guy out in 2000 July.

Said he was very experienced muskie hunter, just wants to see lake.

OK

Put him on few spots an can tell pretty much he is not experienced but is nice so...

One rocky weed spot right by Ludlows Resort I says.. "So my friend sometimes a long real pretty girl likes to eat n rest here...maybe you work some magic n bust her in the snout an photo up.

"Yeah..I was thinking the same thing when we pulled up...looks promising."

Moving boat so he can hit spots I see a nice fish come flying from west n zeroing in on his offering...I say ones a moving in ya see it...he turns an sees the fish a nice bout I think was maybe 46" to 48" muskie fish.

Fish follows to boat an makes her move to gobble an Mr. Experience Pulls the lure up OUT OF THE WATER.??

Kind of in a fog I look at him an wonder why?

SO what was that I said.

"Well %$#@ man I already caught a 50" before...I aint looken for smaller muskies."

"OH"

1st for me.....he never did get a bite...

I think the follow told her pals an they had a good lught that night out midlake gobbling sunfishys.

Ya had tobe there again.

 

Mmmm fish fry tonight.

Keep on rocken.

Great video Tommy. I've got a few of those too from ice-in and ice-out. It's such a beautiful sound. At ice-in it can sound like you're snapping window panes in half. At ice-out, it can sound like a bunch of crystals rubbing up against one another. Cool stuff. Thanks for sharing.

 

I appreciate the Partridge River pics as well CigarGuy! John sent me a text on Monday night to tell me he made it in there.

      I’m not even sure if I’m in the right page I just signed up but my question is I just purchased a boat from a private seller went to his home the boat fired up I purchased the boat, the day before I brought it out which was about a week and a half later it fired up brought it to the lake the next day it fired up boated around for about 25 minutes found a spot to fish It was off for about an hour or so went to start it back up and it would not fire back up had to be towed off the lake so the moral of the story is there anyway I can go back and get my money legally without no trouble or what is my next step if the seller does not want to give the money back?

      Greetings....I'm searching for an original TUFFY (molded metal, left side or set of 2) TRANSOM CORNER for a rebuild on a 1985 Tuffy Muskie. Several TUFFY boats had these so being specifically from a Marauder may not be necessary. Wondering if anyone can help in locating one from a dealer or private party who may have upgraded to more modern transom corners/caps....maybe a boat that's been abandoned or scraped. 
      Photo attached of the right-rear that I am trying to  set-match to. The right side I have. Need to get a left side cap.
      Thanks for any assistance.

      Do any of you guys know if Surface Tension still swims around these parts? I think I need my Nils sharpened. I had sent him a message through the HSO forum a while ago and didn't hear back. I'm not sure if HSO and Fishing MN share the same messaging platform, or if I need to try him here instead. Did a quick search and it doesn't look like he's posted in a while, so I'm hoping someone knows his whereabouts.

      I don't fish that series of lakes but I have also heard that the introduction of the catfish years ago has played a significant role in reducing the population of panfish, especially bluegills.  I know bass anglers that fish out there regularly using artificial moving lures that still catch catfish.  That tells me they are aggressive and hungry.   I believe muskies were also introduced but muskies have not been proven to have a measurable impact on panfish populations, except for maybe perch.  There's simply not enough of them and stomach content studies have shown they prefer a diet of suckers, ciscoes (when present), small pike, and perch.  Would they eat a bluegill given the chance?  Of course.  But they do not seek them out as primary prey.   Another likely factor is angler over harvest.  Panfish populations get hammered almost year round now.
    • smurfy
      looks like there will be a change in sunfish limits effective march 1. article in todays st cloud times said there looking to reduce the sunfish limit on 9 area lakes. those lakes happen to make up the horseshoe chain system. looks like the new limit will go from 20 to 10.   now this is just my opinion but i didnt hear any issues with the panfish population  until a few years after they introduced the catfish to that system.   either way i'm ok with the change!

      Whoa, bringing this one back from the dead.   I use Rockys.  The specific model are Cornstalkers.  They have 500 grams of insulation.  I use mine as all-purpose boots, walking for pheasants/grouse and sitting for deer/turkeys.  The first set I had lasted for about 10 years before they started to fall apart.  I'm on my second pair now, year 3 coming up.  I had a pair of Redhead Comfort Airs from Bass Pro for 2 seasons and they started to leak and my feet always got wet.  Highly suggest avoiding the Redhead brand of boots.

      Well, just wrapped up my last day in Grand Marais. All the smaller, shallow lakes are locked up with ice, or will be after tonight. Lots of snow up the trail, but getting around on back roads wasn’t a problem. I stopped and fished most of the trout lakes around the gunflint and arrowhead trails...the ones that weren’t frozen over anyway. My dad didn’t see a single grouse...I saw one at the start of the arrowhead. I didn’t hear a single gunshot while I was out fishing. Saw 1 moose, 1 bear, a few deer, foxes were everywhere! And even saw a fisher run across the road. Saw just about every animal print you can think of in the snow. Still a few diving ducks around, snow buntings and crossbills everywhere. And finally seen a gray jay! Despite the cold and snow, it really wasn’t that bad out. Was a different perspective fishing all the lakes in waders, as opposed to being in a boat.   
    • Rick
      Thanks for stopping in Darren. I will always consider you a great friend. You always gave and then gave some more.   You are appreciated.

      A huge shout out to Borch who gave some really good pointers on running the raps in our lake.   This fall my dad spent more days fishing from my boat and actually was begging me to go. Dont know if we will be able to do it again but made some really good memories.
