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.

      Well its Friday and the forecast looks fantastic for a weekend of hole hopping. Me and the 96' Pantera are heading up North of Duluth in search of walleyes. Where is everyone heading, what's the target, and how much ice are you seeing? 
    • cookie129
      Bill , Theresa spent one night in Montana, They managed tow get 2 walleyes under 17. 1 around 20 inches , They also landed a 36 inch pike. So all in all Not to good.  The fishing has been way better out deeper , but with this warm up and my houses weighing 5 to 7 thousands pounds.  I need to use common sense and stay on this side of the pressure ridge for now.   When the weather warms  the ice expands , the weakest link is the pressure ridges and can become quite active. Its just getting light, but from what I have heard through the grape vine  the lake was gowning and popping last night with a couple new breaks so if your coming up please check at the resort you plan on accessing.  There crews are out there everyday and know more about what"s going on with bridges ,cracks and areas that should be avoided.  Right now the temps are just to mild to make much if any ice. I was surprised to measured 13 1/4 where I have old Minnesota. I imagine  there's a bit more snow closer to shore so were seeing a inch or more further out where's there's less snow.   We have guest coming  today  with a few not coming tell tomorrow.

      Bump! I assume it's safe for walking but are there any spots to avoid for foot traffic? Have the week of Xmas off and would like to try this lake.

      I bought one from them too I priced it out and it was about the same to build my own as to order from them so I just ordered it from them. Mine wouldnt be as neat as theirs haha

      That's amazing, you have the same Avatar name as a guy who has been selling the same box on here since Sept. Did he give you a better deal then $80 bucks? 🤔

      I just purchased this from bold north outdoors,  now i have everything running off of my battery box.  Its pretty sweet.  I found them on facebook, many people make them, but after the cost of purchasing everything it would cost more then what this company is selling them for

      For portable power on the go, use a Bold North Outdoor battery box, solar panel, and a lithium battery.  You can hook up external 12v lights to the the terminal posts or a usb led light to the usb port.  Charge your electronics, and use the flash lights on the front of the box.   Many uses for this product just named a few, added a couple pictures of what I have inside of my Portable Battery Box. You can check them out on fb or just go to their website.  www.boldnorthoutdoors.com

      Back when I had to go to the barn to get a feed bucket to put my fishing gear in (which it all fit in one bucket), I could catch all kinds of nice fish with nothing more than a homemade rattle reel and a cheap jiggle stick.  As technology and equipment got better, my ability to catch fish went in the toilet.
