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.

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.
    • delcecchi
      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.  
    • monstermoose78

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.
    • whateverisbiting
      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂
    • LBerquist
      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs. 
    • Borch
      Gulp crawler.  In the spot the walleyes were going in there was a pile of 3-5" perch that tore up the real crawlers.   Gulp crawlers took care of the issue and the eyes liked them too. 
    • delcecchi
      When we go to Quetico, barbless or mashed down barbs is mandatory.   To tell the truth I haven't noticed that we lose more fish with barbless than barbed.   Not catching muskies though.  Pike, walleye, bass, lake trout.
