How about an annual Minnetonka traveling FM musky trophy?


Recommended Posts

Just a thought. The Mississippi guys have an annual smallie bass magnet award. Think we ought to have a Minnetonka musky something or other. My first inclination is a pink Odyssey Pig or maybe we can get the Barbie doll topwater rigged up. . Rules pretty simple biggest musky by Oct 31. Post your fish length and a pic. If you are fishing alone just take a pic with fish in net. Open to suggestions on rules and award. Right now it looks like Buzzsaw is the leader.

Maybe that last weekend we have a litle FM minnetonka musky get together for some good stories, company, and fishing.

I'm for it. The PMTT tourney is Oct 15/16 so they'll be out the way so Oct 22 or Oct 29 are possible dates. Gray's bay launch should be usable by then. Could even be later as Tonka Boy and I keep fishing until the ice at the launches gets to thick to punch through.

I am marking it on the calender now. It just cannot be on the Gun Deer season opener (Nov. 5th).

This should be lots of fun!!!

Mark, you are very kind for mentioning that lil' fella I accidentily got on opener. I'd be interested! I'm sure plenty of people would.

P.S. I like the mention of PINK from an earlier thread, way to tie that in!

Count me in! Now I just have to catch one...or just get out for that matter. Work has been a bear as of late. frown.gif

So is it going to be a one day/weekend event, or a "largest muskie by october 31st" thing, or both? I wouldn't mind doing both!

Largest muskie from opener to Oct 31. We could have a get together end of Oct to fish and hand out the award whatever it ends up being.

ok, all we have to do is come up with a "white elephant" type trophy....this could be passed along year to year. Conceptually, the Barbie doll topwater lure takes the cake! If we can only get a working "model" tongue.gif.

like the barbie idea, but i would think that a toy jet ski with some miniature bucktails and suicks stuck in the jet ski drivers back would be humorous. i swear that if i am unfortunate enough to be headed down when i die that my eternal punishment would be having to musky fish every day with lethargic 60" fish swimming around the boat while constantly being buzzed by jet skis.

Since everyone seems to be talking about biggest fish across most of the season, what would be needed for proof? Picture of the fish next to a ruler with some Minnetonka scenery in the background?

Honor system is the rule. Photos would be nice. Just post your fish right here. Believe me you won't want the prize whatever it is but braggin rights could be good. I am leaning to a flaming pink Suick refrig magnet at the moment.

Sounds great. Chances are probably pretty good that you won't have to worry about too much competition from me, I've only fished muskies 3 times in my life (only once on tonka for about 45 minutes) and only caught one the one time I went with a guide up north. And my usual fishing partner is geared almost exclusively for walleye, which sufices when hunting bass, but won't handle the large musky baits. However, after catching my first last week I now know what everyone gets so excited about, I liken it to the fight of a hornry bass with an additional 20 or 30 pounds of muscle. I can't wait to get out there and give it a try.

Sounds like a great idea to me. I have some suick blanks that i could do a custom paint job on and it could say "FM muskie Champ 05" on the top or something else is anyone has some ideas. It would be alot of fun to meet up and talk fishing and share some photos and stories.

How about a Pink Weagle, with the "FM Minnetonka Traveling Trophy" slogan. Then on the back, it might say "10 Muskie Guarantee". Or it could say "$100 Redeamable Value"

Hey STANMAN, grin.gif any interest getting out on Tonka and hunting Ski's some night after work?? Next week would probably work best for me as I'm headed up north in a couple of days.

      Water level is going down, but slowly.  My dock frame was 6" underwater last week and I can just see it above water today.  It's going to take time.

      My lil island front iron crib dock also under bout six inches. No Good! Lil higher than this time May 2008.  😮😮🥅🏒😮 No good to drop west dock for lifts as that would be under also n lift rails n pads be just but under water.  No Good! Marauder Boys miss the lake too. Happened before in my 26 years out there n will happen again so we just deal doing other stuff off lake n enjoy it all. Fun being a Shore Rat for shallow Crappies around home lakes. Bust a move n keep in the Grove. 🏒🥅🤩 We figure by anniversary June 12 th level drop enuff we sneek out in smaller Lund n fix up n open up? 🤩 Best of luck to ya but be safe. This lake is deeper n darker than you or I know…🤩 Big Smiles n Keep on Rocken! T    Did'nt intend to have pic so big....Geeezzz.

      We’re in the same boat. Actually I’d like to be in any boat. Our island cabin dock frame is about six inches under water. I hear that water is not rising which gives hope it will fall but I think Memorial Day is too optimistic, at least for us. You should think about other plans?

      looking to do some kayak bass fishing on Clearwater lake by Annandale. Are there any Other landings other than the one on the far south west end? Was wondering how the fishing is on the east end but that is a heck of a paddle. Appreciate any feedback.

      Water levels seems to be topic of the day. I'm visiting over Memorial Day week. Docks are not in on the island where I stay. Wondering if the water is going down? What do the rivers look like? Are they just pouring our water?? Is water level 6" lower than a few days ago?

      Finding plenty of fish around the area lately. Water on most of our area lakes and rivers is very high. Most of the panfish have moved from those back bay areas and are staging for the spawn. You can find the pannies tucked in the weeds right now close to those spawning beds. Casting small jigs without a float to pockets of vegetation or to outside the pencil reeds has been working well.
