Butch Furtman in the SnoBear


Recommended Posts

I had Butch out in the SnoBear to do a little filming and I'm guessing he will have one for next season. He was totally impressed and we caught a few walleyes ta boot. I had never met him before, super nice guy. The show is on FSN I guess and it should air in a couple of weeks.

Have a good weekend,

Walleyedan

Hey Dan...If you ever find out the exact date on this, let me know so I can check it out! By the way, I'll probably be heading through your area Feb.24th on a fishing trip to the Longville area. I'll try to stop by S&W to see if you're around.

Take it easy,

Jeff

Hi Jeff,

I'll let you know when I find out. Call me on your way up and I'll try to be there at the baitshop.

That's cool Dan that you got to do a snow with Butch. He is huge up here in the Northland. Used to watch his show every Sunday night, but now not sure when it's on. He seems like a real down to earth guy. Heading back to Red this weekend. I'll keep checking your site to see when the show will air.

Walleyedan...Nice "eye" Tony D caught. The only problem is he thinks he is famous now. He told me he is going to book the talk show circuit soon.

Hey Nate,

He's famous, but not as famous as the "Bullhead Butch". B.F. is a real down to earth guy and I did feel honored to fish with a Hall Of Famer. I will try to let you know when the show will be on, he's on Sunday mornings on FSN at 9:30. Good luck on Red.

See ya,

W.D.

N.C.G.,

Yes, Tony's fish was a nice one (the nicest yet pulled from the Bear). And I know, he's mentioned the talk show thing to me. You just never know with Tony D., he would probably give Dr. Phill a run!!

Later,

Walleyedan

Saw the show, Butch was a little, lets say "unorthodox" in landing his fish, but that second walleye was a beauty. The SnoBear looked impressive as well. Too bad you didn't get a better plug at the end of the show.

I saw the show too. Those were a couple nice walleyes Dan put him on.

I think they did't say more than they did about Walleyedan since the idea of that segment is that Nisswa Marine is a sponsor of the show and they wanted to showcase the rig. I still think Dan got a good mention and such though.

Butch's show is one of my favorite since he fishes a lot of the same waters I do for walleye. My kids always laugh because when the show comes on and the logo is just starting, I always point at them, hesitate, and say "Hello and welcome to the show" Butch then immediately does the exact same thing right after I do. They look at me like "how'd you know he was going to do that?"

Anyway, Dan, that show was ONbelievable! (I watch way too much fishing shows.)

Chuck,

I'm laughing!! Onbelievable is right. He's a nice guy and you are right on, it wasn't about me it was about promoting Nisswa Marine and the Bear. It sure isn't going to hurt my business though, I only have two days open for next winter in the SnoBear. I'm kidding. But you just never know, a lot of people watch his show. It was nice to be able to produce some nice fish in a short window of opportunity (4 hours). I'm hoping we can do an open water show this year as well.

Thanks Chuck,

Dan

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.

      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?
