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.

      Out tonight with the kids, honeycomb ice on the top 2 inches with water over the sheet of thick ice. Exposed shorelines are soft, my dog and kids broke through while walking. Even though the shores are shot for driving I’m guessing we’ll have good walkable ice (waders) for a while...
    • Wanderer
      Haha - ya I spose!  Only we weren’t shooting paper.  Painted steel hanging targets with a spotter and spotting scope. Drive to em to paint em but no retrieval.  
    • smurfy
      yea no target pic...……...I aint buying it!!!!!!!!😁 awesome looking gun !!!!!!!!!

      Got out for a couple hours yesterday. West end of Francis again, several small sunnies but no crappies this time. Access is pretty beat up, need waterproof boots but the ice is holding up so far. Couple guys had an Argo out.

      Nice @AlwaysFishing23!   We drove by there last night and were tempted to pop a few holes but had burgers on the brain too much.   I got over half of the bottom part of the list done today and 1 part of the top list done, which was much more fun!   A friends custom 6.5 dialed in.  Started at 500 yards and finished at 1000; 7 mph cross wind.  My favorite hits were the 4 inch circle at 550; the 4”x5” plate at 700 and managing a 12 inch 3 shot group at 1000.  Man, he’s got this baby down.
    • monstermoose78
      Wow the fish were on fire but little. I caught so many 4-7 inch gills and one 3 over 7 inches. Crappies were harder to come by and 5-7 inches. 
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Got out fishing this morning at about 9am and was off by 2. Had a group of good buddies join and ended with 3 limits of big gills (8”-9.5”),  (limit on this lake is 10 per person per day) 2 jumbo perch, 3 decent pike, and 3 largemouth ( all pike and bass were released immediately as they are out of season). AWESOME day with a good group of buds. Sight fishing in 4-5FOW made the action even more fun😁 if you were able to get out it was a great day to be out with friends, family or the kiddos.

      We get mailboat delivery on Black Duck Island (east Frazer Bay) starting around the 1st of June through the first week of September. Other times, the Tower PO is good about holding mail. Aronson Marina runs the mailboat and could answer your question about Portage Bay.  Good luck, Dick
