I read in the Muskie forum that you fish for muskies in the Detroit Lakes area. I don't know if you have a boat or if you are a seasoned muskie fisherman unlike myself but as I posted earlier I'd be more than happy to take someone out muskie fishing on DL for a day on the river. I had a lot of success last summer on DL as it was my first season muskie fishing. Started fishing for them late July and ended up boating 26 for the year. If anyone is interested drop me an email.

'Sup Dog,

Sounds like a good deal to me. I'll be around all weekend and will probably be hitting the river on Sat for a little while. I'd say sooner, but I've got a presenter coming to town who I have to babysit a little bit and I don't know if I'll get out until Sat. Wanna meet up somewhere? Give me a call at the office 231-8624 or home 476-1850.

Hey guys I will be hittin the red this weekend also. Friday and sat. Friday shouldnt be to bad as far as shore fishing goes most people are still at work. Saturday tho with this nice weather were having could be a different story. The easy to reach well known areas might be shoulder to shoulder. Were not the only ones with spring fever I fear.

I ya'll want to get together it sounds good. Scoot maybe you have a idea where to try. Might go looking at the tributaries Ed talked about a few days ago. Let me know. [email protected]

i went out for a bit we didnt catch jack. They kept goin i went to church. The river still isnt very good??? It will change but are we not at the right spot or not at the right time?? I would take a small box and keep moving down the rivers. They havent stacked up below the dams but they must be some where close. A mile is nothing to a walleye and if you cant catch even a fish you are in the wrong place!!! Take one rod and a small box and move till you find em. They are stageing somewhere.

Walleye often wonder this-a-way or that-a-way 15 miles (or more) in a day/night this time of year.

If your in the wrong place, odds are not too good, yup-yup.

{TIP}
Don't fish "Last years bite", this year. Two many guys/galls are doing just that right now.

Yeah, it's not as tough to find as it is to describe where it is! Did ya fish there? I have yet to wet a line there this spring.
Did you ever give Ed a call? If you're after walleyes, hurry up and give him a shout. If it's cats, the season is very soon upon us. Ed might even know more about your fly fishing for the whiskered buggers.
Good luck,
Scoot

I am not that up on flinging flys for puddy tat's, yet.

I do know the guy who is, in Canada. They work cats that can go way over 25 pounds on fly rods. I watched them in action, that really looked like a hoot Eh!

Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

My cat'n partner and I plan to tinker with the fly thing in 2003. I think I need a good frog fly.

Hi Ed and all,

I was sick for a while but getting back in the swing of things and am sure I'll meet some of you on the red.

Hey Ed, do you have to squish those frogs before you fly cast them? lol.

      I had a good opener, also with ten. We should have taken a lot more, but shooting, jitters, and other factors prevented it (as usual). For us, Sunday was really slow, but still managed to bag a few. 
    • Parmer
      That's a good idea thanks.

      We love it when we catch a muskie, but it can be such a grind!

      Just got back from five days on the lake. We were fishing for walleye in the end fun with limits already taken. We are on an island and the dock bite was very good. Slip bobbers with either rainbows or chubs. Also, walking the island and casting tubes was also productive for larger walleye. Off the point of the island, under dock, near rocks. I guess that means we caught most of our fish shallow. Wind was our friend, to a point. Didn't like some of the gusts but wind blown shore and points were key. Follow the wind.   Smallmouth were not shallow. We did work some shoreline but did not find those fish up shallow. We did run into some smallmouth on the points, etc deeper while fishing for walleye.

      I had a good opener.  Two friends and I got 10 ducks and with some better shooting we could probably had 12 or 13.  It was significantly better than the last two openers and certainly better than I expected.  We had nice mixed bag of wood ducks, mallards, teal, and even got a shoveler.  It was very comfortable out there too.  Was nice not to sit there and roast away in my chest waders this time.

      If that is a new 2018 rig I would call the MFG and see what they think?  If you have a warranty on it, that may invalidate it? 
    • sheephead2
      We have been up since Saturday and all we got are small walleyes.  Very windy today.  Hope wind goes down  
    • pikeandchester
      Quite a bit slower today. Only saw 2 teal between yesterday and today, which  really surprised me and most of the wood ducks seemed to have moved on. Didn’t stick around long enough for the geese. Hope everyone had a great weekend and good luck!

      How is it going today 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Carp30, Vermilion is starting into the fall transition period now that the water is cooling down. The bite can be either great or tough during this period. Yesterday we caught walleyes as deep as 44' and as shallow as 10'! Location and time of day is the key! We caught walleyes deep using short snell Lindy rigs,( 2 ft.), with minnows, The shallow walleyes hit best on the same rigs using 1/2 crawler. Sand and rock mix or transitions are the key areas right now. Necked down areas that have deep water and adjacent sand flats are almost always good now. Cliff
