Sounds like a great idea! Count me in. I would really like to meet some of you guys. I've got a house on Lake Emma so I am in the area frequently.

How about proposing a date so we can mark our callendars?

The exact date doesn't really doesn't matter to me so long as it is either on a Saturday or Sunday.

Now you've gone and done it MuskyBug - - - you started my musky addition early this year. It's still a long time till June. confused.gifcrazy.gifwink.giffrown.gifcrazy.gif

Hey Muskie Bug,

That sounds like a good idea I would be in. It just

depends on my work schedule.

Sorry I didn't see or reply to this sooner.

I would be interested in making a trip back to the clear waters that taught me how to fish musky.

Maybe check with the Fargo and Twin Cities chapters of Muskie Inc. so you don't get a double booked weekend on Mantrap. If I remember correctly they host a few get togethers on that pond over the course of the summer.

If you realy get slick try to find a good moon phase period for this gathering on that gin bottle. wink.gif

I think that any one should be able to come and i also feel it could be a great oppertunity to introduce new guys to the sport, maybe do it Pro-Am style with a new guy paired up with an experienced angler so they can get a feel for proper fish handling techniques and basic lure when and wheres. The vets coulds also answer any Q's that the Rooks may have. Just my thoughts. Please give me your input. Jonah

This would be fun, a great way to introduce new musky anglers to the sport and have a good time. I'll drag the boat to the trap for this.

I'm definitely interested in this. I have yet to fish the trap, so it'd be fun to get out there with some resident experts of the water. My June and July are pretty ugly, but I'll try be there if I can.

I know I'll be on LOW chasing muskies on the 29th, so I'll vote for the 5th. BTW, do you mean July 5th? Or Aug 5th?

The 5th is WEFEST Weekend, just thought I would throw that out. Traffic can suck that weekend especially when heading south most of the day Sunday. Just FYI.

      Well that gets you out of making lunch, but not getting unstuck! 😊
    • Wanderer
      You got that right!  I don’t fish Vermillion but have always liked reading the posts.  Log in issues or not, I hope he decides to get back in the swing of things here.   Again, not a big V fisherman but I’m gonna check my calendar for the weekend of the kids event and maybe throw my hat in to help if I can.  I can at least get some lines wet if pointed in the right direction.

      @leech~~ did buy me a steak dinner at the Ely steakhouse when I took him lake trout fishing several years ago.  He’s not without his charities. 🙂

      Just west of shantytown. 😉😁
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Hey @leech could I put you in charge of bringing the beverages, snacks and food? Maybe even bring a little table to set it all up on like a buffet style 😂
    • leech~~
      Where?  Just so I can help next time? 😁
    • AlwaysFishing23
      You were a big help today I really appricetate it. I’ve fished that same area at least one a week for the last month. Every time from 1-6pm. Haven’t had a terrible trip yet every time I get a lot of nice gills. The first time I tried that bite I got a few nice crappies and a 17” walleye. Last night fished again and kept 6 nice gills and threw back a lot of good ones to and got I a 21” walleye. It’s a sunset bite for sure then after dark if you hang around long enough the crappies bite to. But it’s hard to stay out last 6pm when it’s this cold trying to heat the portable can become hard even with a good heater. Glad to hear you guys had some luck I’ve heard that area is good but I’ve never tried it. Haha another buddy who always fish’s in the cold told me I was crazy for going out. Well look you did well the last two days......😂. Good luck to you tommarow!
    • Wanderer
      Thanks for the shout out; glad to help!  I was heading back out to jump start my brothers diesel and saw you get stuck.  Needed to get my bro’s truck going first.  Saw you were in the same spot and knew a little help would go a long way in that rutted mess out there.   You had a good catch for the afternoon. 😎  We were in that area Friday night but after the bite was over.  Got some but not that good.  Had a nice evening crappie bite to the east last night.  A few pike this morning before pulling up stakes.     Gonna head north I think tomorrow.  But it sounds like I’m the only one willing to brave the weather.

      Thanks to Wanderer (Tracy) for extracting me from a sticky situation 🤦‍♂️. It was also nice to finally meet you in person!! I think you need to start a weekend towing business lol. I had a buddy of mine and his dad come out and check and make sure I was okay after you left. Fishing was pretty good I got 8 gills all around 8” and 1 crappie 9”. Dad came out and got 5 gills. We stayed till 6:15pm and I was able to make it off the lake no problem.
