Sounds good! How do we get pictures posted? I have to get some film developed and then try to get them to a digital format. Don't have a scanner. Maybe a digital picture of a picture will work. I'll get them in as soon as I can. See Ya!

WW...a lot of photo development places now have digital options. you can get your roll of film developed and put onto a disk. I've used a mail-in company called Photoworks..out of Seatle, WA. I send my roll of film, they e-mail a link, and I have them all on-line to review and catalog a few day before the prints arrive in the mail. lots of good options out there.

would love to see some of your Ida catches!

While I don't have a picture because it happened years ago, I do have a true fish story that most people refuse to believe...

My dad and I were trolling on Lake Washington near Mankato. We were making our way back and forth between the two points looking for Northern. We were both using purple beetle spinners. I got a nice hit on mine, and my dad stopped the motor. As he was reeling in to net my fish, he got a hit as well! As my Northern came up to the boat, I could see he had two lures in his mouth - both purple beetle spinners. Apparently one wasn't enough for him - after he hit mine, he took my dad's too. Sure wish they had digital camera's back then!

OK, finally got about 3 different rolls of film into Walmart and had them put them on disc. Don't know how to put pics up. I will probably e-mail them to Rick and ask him to put them up on this post. Here is the description of pics the way that I have them labeled:

Picture "Ida 3" - Pair of 18"
Ida3.jpg

Picture "Ida 7" - 24.5" release
Ida7.jpg

Picture "Ida 9" - 19" and a 22" (22" relesed)
Ida9.jpg

Picture "Ida 11" - Pair of 20" (good picture they look bigger then that trust me)
Ida11.jpg

Picture "Ida 12" - 23" release.

Enjoy

Wavewacker,
your pics are up.

If everyone starts asking me to do this I won't have time to get my work done.

I highly recommend you click the FAQ links and learn how to post pics here yourself. you can use free servers like imagestation to load your pics on the web.

Thanks Rick,

Sorry for that. Didn't know that I could post pics myself (still don't actually but I will dig around in the FAQ link). Thank you very much however for putting them up.

July 5th, 2003. A hot sunny day. Hardly ideal for muskies. But Pete Wilson and his friend Hank Murphy from Phoenix, Arizona were going to give it a try. The two 14 year old anglers were the crew on board Kent Scheel's crestliner. Kent is the manager at Alexandria Outfitters, and a member of the Alexandria Guide Association.

"No way can you catch a fish with that!" one of the boys said as Kent produced a 10" jake bait. "We'll see" he replied. "You just hang on." About 20 minutes later, trolling in about 29 feet of water the thrill hit: "I think I've got one!" Pete stammered. And the fight was on. A beautiful 47 inch musky, well over 25 pounds. As Kent tried to net the beast, the handle of the net broke from the fish's weight. Resourcefully, he gripped the edges of the net and scooped trophy into the boat. The boys were 'totally psyched'! As you can see by the picture:

After a few pictures this beauty was released. A lasting Minnesota memory for the two teens from Phoenix!

      Went to Franconia on Saturday. Wind was cold and miserable! With it howling straight downstream, my options were pretty limited, so we mostly trolled up and down the main channel. Caught 1 pike, 2 smallies, and 1 white bass.

      Things seem to be moving right along.  Yesterday on a small Cass county lake we found sunfish and crappies in 6ft+/- ft of water with some crappies already on beds.

      Looks like it was a successful outing ST. My boat probably  hates me as I haven't had it out for a swim yet. MAYBE, if I'm lucky I will be able to get out over Memorial weekend. Thanks for the report.  
    • monstermoose78
      Most of the streams are small. Where I focus is the small streams in the back country for brook trout. Casting is hard on these streams. Some of the bigger rivers can be good. Remember the crazy rules on these streams. 
    • monstermoose78
      Wow Eyeguy you can catch them and panfish. Keep it up and let’s hear about some details.
    • monstermoose78
      The walleye bite is heating up around the area. Bass are on the beds and panfish are keeping most anglers busy. Remember the new pike regs are in place now. Good luck and let’s hear some reports and see some more photos!! Thank you to all that check my reports. I am off to get some fishing in. 
    • monstermoose78
      Hello everyone,  please check out the fishing report clubs. I believe the first few members can get in free. I hope you are all doing well fishing and hunting. I look forward to reading your reports.  If you any questions just ask. thank you, monstermoose
    • ANYFISH2
      Thanks for the reports guys.
    • MinnowBuckets
      The last few days have been pretty hot on areas of the river for a lot of nice bass between 16-18 inches, topping out at 19 inches for my largest. Many were fish located on spawning beds, some hitting aggressively and immediately, and some not interested in even acknowledging the bait. I started out with a 4 inch wacky worm on a VMC wacky weedless jighead, but found that I was getting larger, more aggressive fish by switching to a 5 inch wacky. I would Imagine that the spawn will be all but over within a few days.
