Yeah, but was it going to be a sweet ZZ Top bandana like Tommy's with an Eliminator hat to boot?

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 have a strikemaster Mag2000 and I can not get gas to flow to the carb. I’ve replaced the gas line and carb. If I don’t have it hooked up to the carb the gas flows great into a bucket or gas can, but once hooked up to carb, gas won’t move. TIA

      Well, the highway 70 access won me over yesterday, only to break my heart today. I should have seen the warning signs at the start of the day. Get to the launch, get everything ready, about to put boat in the water...forgot the life jackets! 😫 I drove to the Walmart in Pine City and bought 2 life jackets! Finally got on the water. Was a nice boat ride upstream. Was hoping maybe to make it all the way up to the mouth of the Snake River. Probably made it halfway before it got too shallow. I most likely could have made it through had I had more ambition, but we needed to start fishing. Hooked into a few fish right away, but lost them. I’m pretty sure one was a small muskie. Ended up drifting all the way back to boat launch, and only caught 2 fish! And both were just a couple hundred yards up from the launch! Was a smallie and a little walleye. So yes, slow day indeed. Looks like a nice trail system at the access though. Might have to plan a hike there this summer.

      I am going up to camp in the middle of June.  Anybody have any suggestions about baits and depths etc. for Walleyes and Bass?

      May 31...Another beautiful afternoon on rainy lake with my wife...fishing east end this time...out for 4 hours 20+ walleyes and one 30” northern. Surface water temperature 65 degrees in 10-14 feet...jigs and chubs...Cajun batter on the fillets...

      Going to lake vermillion for the first time. June 13. Staying near Arrow Head Point, Isle of Pines. Only have a small boat with 15 HP so looking for some tips for where to go for big pike that is reasonably close given my boat. I do not mind a drive, but I know how conditions can get on big water.  I also plan to go to Trout Lake (reason for bringing the small boat) If anyone has tips on Trout Lake for Pike.  Thanks and #tightlines!

      Heading up to chain for a couple weeks.  Need some general info on the panfish bite.  They still shallow?  Got a couple grandkids coming up and any info sent on the panfish action will be appreciated.  Thanks   Ray guy
    • walros
      Maybe see if you slide the winch back on the tongue an inch or two. The roller needs to contact the boat to keep it from bouncing. Should check to make sure the rear bunk rollers line up with the rear transom for stability.  
    • gunner55
      Every rig we've owned the roller is above the eye & snug to the boat when it's loaded.

      I looked at my rig yesterday . It is a matched boat/trailer package from Lund . My roller is above the eye but snug onto the bow , probably an inch maybe more, higher than yours.
