Hello all!!<P>I heard about this place (fshingminnesota.com)from a fella that asked to borrow a spark plug wrench today at like 11:30 or so, He asked me if I was a member here cuz he said I look fimiliar and he saw me on here, I think he said that because my brother is the owner of Happy Landing Lodge and he might have seen his picture on here, anyway I wasn't a member so I deciede to stop by, so whoever that was, sorry I didn't have a plug wrench, those Yamaha 4 strokes are just too darn reliable so I don't carry my tools with me anymore. Anyway, let me know who ya are, and we can go fishing someday.<P>So, where are the hot spots on The Lake of the Woods? We are thinking of heading out in the morning again so we would like to know where to go to catch a ton.<P>Thanks!!<p>[This message has been edited by Koerbs (edited 06-16-2004).]

Yo koerbs, I am the auld phart that mentioned FM.com to you. First of all, I would like to thank you for trying to help us get our motor started. Unfortunately, we were never able to leave the dock. Had to give up and yank it out of the water without even getting a line wet. Turns out that I had a bad coil, so I'm going fishless until that gets repaired. Secondly, we have to come up with a better username for you. Granted that Koerbs is a good and honorable name, but using it for a username is just too mundane. You need to come up with a name that conveys panache, true grit,elan,joie de vivre, et.al. Great care must be taken in choosing just the right username lest you end up with something like (shudder) jigglestick! Oh the pain! You could be: Le Rouge Baron(the Red Baron) Now doesn't that sound better than just koerbs. Fiskynut is a good username but it's already taken. So is Old Guide. Maybe you could be: lostanotheronetoditech.Nah, too long. I'm going to keep on thinking until I can come up with a more colorful username for you. In the meanwhile, a big welcome to FM.com You will find this site to be one of the most fun and interesting fishing sites that you have ever read. There are a great bunch of guy's here that are well versed in many different fields. Nobody is afraid to share their knowledge and skills with other fishermen. Truly a great bunch of guy's. All are willing to tell great stories. Some of which are even true. Now I remember who you reminded me of. Larry, the guy who used to own Happy Landings. I once watched him try to get a flooded motor going using the exact same method you did. Holding a match with a pliers.<BR> It was very nice meeting you yesterday Paul. I hope you won't take any offense in all the B.S. in my post. It's all meant in good fun. Hope we can hook up some day and get out fishing. 1DIRTBALL aka:Keith<P>------------------<BR>YOU CAN'T [PoorWordUsage] AN OLD [PoorWordUsage]'ER!

Paul, Drop me an email at:[email protected] Please include your phone#. I have a good idea for you for an excellent dingy water spinner. I would think with the right approach it would go over HUGE on LOW. BTW, I had never seen or heard the name Koerbs until I met you yesterday. So the reason I asked was not because of your brother. Like I said in my previous post, you just reminded me of Larry Stahn. May the next fish you catch be HUGE!<P>------------------<BR>YOU CAN'T [PoorWordUsage] AN OLD [PoorWordUsage]'ER!

Yeah, Larry is one heck of a guy, I haven't meet anyone like Larry, My brother didn't buy the resort from Larry (Matt was the 2nd owner after Larry), but He sure has helped my brother out when he needs it. I man like him deserves great respect.<P>Anyway, I just emailed you and am waiting for your reply.

      I looked up the Mille lacs hooking mortality study on walleyes and it started to dramatically increase around 65 degrees. About 5% mortality at 65 degrees but about 25% at 75 degrees. I have to imagine the numbers are higher for muskies given an extended fight with a large fish, having to take more care to not get cut up or hooked yourself while unhooking the fish, temptation to take lots of pictures, etc.  Here's the study if you're interested http://mnmuskie.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/Reeves-and-Bruesewitz-2007_factors-influencing-hooking-mortality-of-walleyes-Mille-Lacs.pdf

      Went out the last couple days on Mille lacs, we had no problem finding fish, but the big fish eluded us... We got all sorts of year classes from 11" eyes on up to 24", which is a good sign... That big storm they got must have dirtied the water up, all the fish we found were on the top edge of the flats no matter how bright it was... Rigging leeches and crawlers were the best until we got some waves then the jigging rap was taking all the fish. The fish were stacked up on points of flats and narrow ridges on the flats... We tried pulling lead for a little while, but I've never done it so I had zero confidence in it haha.

      DLD I'll keep rigging as long is I can keep catching good fish but entering into August I'll start to pull leadcore more.

      Ace, honest question here with no intent to debate, just learning more about muskies. What surface temps do you consider to be too warm for handling muskies?
    • DLD24
      What are your guys favorite presentations this time of year? When I come up I've mostly rigged.

      Thanks Brian, the ratchet straps worked great.... quick, easy and secured it tight. I bought a bunch of big zip ties that it looks like I'll never use😀.
    • BrianF
      CigarGuy, cool pic. Looks like a good time/place for a cigar. lol. As far as securing your dock sections, some folks use bailing wire.  That’s what I use. Heading down in a few minutes to secure mine before the next storm takes sections away. Man, the water is high!

      Just got up here. Road construction sucks.....four hour trip took almost 5 hours.  Thanks Del, back end of the boat was out of the water last weekend. Do you guys use zip ties to secure the dock boards, big rocks or ?...…any good ideas?  This was supposed to have been posted last night.  A couple of ratchet straps and I'm golden. Molly the dog is helping me watch my bobber 😀 Two eagles and 5 loons, no fish!!

      Fished Big Pine Lake today. Original plan was to fish the Kettle River, but the rain took care of that. I had fished big pine from shore, below the dam, years back and done well, but this was the first time I’ve ever taken a boat out there. Nice lake...looked to be about 2 feet high. Didn’t catch anything until about dinner time, when crappies started chasing schools of minnows on the west shoreline. Caught about 50 of them. I just happened to have a small twister tail that was almost an exact replica of the bait they were chasing, and that was the difference maker. My dad caught a decent pike that went after a little crappie he was reeling in. Was disappointed we didn’t find any bass, but I’d come back here again.
