    Default 52 X 24 and 51.75 X 25!!!!! Boom goes the Dynomite!!

    Well we got the warm weather that we needed and the fish responded well!! Last night I only had one follow but it was a nice one high 40's to 50. I went back on the same fish this morning and bang!! 52 X 24. About an hour later Dusty calls me and banged a 51.75 X 25!! I saw 2 more fish one about 50 and another about 40-41 all fishing by myself until this evening when my wife jointed me. Dusty and I'll have pics later tonight after we down load.

    Had two great clients out on Saturday afternoon and manage to boat 4 muskies. 2 on Top water, one on a Big Heavy Bucktail and one twitching a crank bait.
    Congrads to Jose and also his father in Law Leo, on there muskies and we had lots of fun with 3 of the muskies eating on the L turn boatside.
    ( Make sure to do those L turns & firgure 8's)

    Where are you guys finding the pigs? Weeds? Rock Reefs? Steep contour changes? The few fish that I have boated this year have come on weed flats, and have all come on top water.

    I had 3 or 4 decent fish follow or strike over the weekend, and finally put one in the net, a beat up 31" on a Creeptonite. Pretty soon I'll stick one of the bigger ones!

  14. Thumbs up Report for the last week & another 50" for Dustin

    Just a update from the last week,

    Finally we are seeing the water temps hit 70 degrees in spots. Keep moving around to find that early cabbage, in spots touching the surface, in other spots it has not hardly started to grow up yet.
    Find early cabbage that is starting to grow and the fish start to turn on in there summer patterns,

    Had a great guide trip with 2 guys from the Cities on Sat, managed to only boat one 41" but saw a bunch and lost 3 others.

    ALso got another 50" in the Ranger last Thursday. Startin out the year looking bright. She ate a double 10 big heavy bucktail

    Find early cabbage + find warmer water = Finding a big muskies

    Hi everyone,
    Muskie Action is heating up for the Summer, even though the water temps have fallen since saturday, the Muskies have and are moving into there summer patterns.
    I had a great past couple of days fishing with Clients From Iowa, Chris, Nick & Dave. Great guys and they said who needs to go to Canada to catch big muskies, After 2 days of heavy pounding the water, 9 fish boated, lost 7 fish and 8 follows. Gotta love it when they are in feeding mode. Baits we used were Big Heavy bucktails & topwater was money for us.

    Would like to thank Chris, Nick & Dave for a great time on my boat and see you next year.
    total was 35, 36, 40 43, 46, 47, 47, 50, 53.25
    Pictures will follow...

    As you can see Pete & I have been pounding fish in the past week & all season!

    I've been out checking new water with great results. Here are some numbers from this past week. 42, 37, 34, 48, 47.25, 45, 45.5, 38, 40, 52.25. Nice to get out and not see other boats. This time of the year is the time to get out and explore some new waters, fish are up and moving well now. I'll post pics in the near future.

  19. Thumbs up Clients with there first muskies

    Had some great days on the water last week, want to say congrads to 10 yr old Keeten with his first 2 muskies he boated last week, 40 & 42 & Eric Johnson with a 40" beauty. Also boated a nice 48.5 last night

    Take a kid fishing because these two kids are now Muskie hooked!!!!

    The summer bite as you can see Pete, Bob & I are boating lots of fish, focus on the summer spots and you will find muskies. Also like pete said we are catching more fish in new spots that are not getting hammered by the daily community spots.

    The Bite on Vermilion is heating up, so give us a call to book your trip, many weekends are booked up but we do have weekdays available, call for dates.

    Good luck

    Thumbs up backgrounds

    I like the background Jeff. Actually all my pics that I post from now on will have the backgrounds blacked/colored out. I've had many people comment on backgrounds and things seen islands, points, train tracks, ect. in the backgrounds that make many spots known to others. The pictures are about the fish not whats behind them. We and all muskie fisherman put in alot of time to find good spots that produce fish consistantly and why should they be wrecked because we are proud of what we caught and want show some pictures. What do you guys think? Anyway nice fish Jeff! Keep chucking baits and Cast Farther, Reel Faster.

    I don't see a problem with the hidden backgrounds, especially for someone like Pete or Dustin who put in some serious hours finding those spots.

    I'm glad I get to fish on fridays before the crowds head out. I had someone zip over to a spot I was at on sunday. I think it would have been a little more classy for them to have waited until I was gone. Oh well, it was a new spot for me anyway...hopefully they snagged up as many times as I did.

    I laughed pretty hard at Jeff's background!

  22. Smile Muskie update as of 8-1-09

    Hi Everyone,

    Well summer has not yet arrived in the north country, They said it is the coldest July on record, the night bite in the north land has been slow, but the muskies still got to eat. Bottom line when it is a little slow we have still found ways to get them to eat, and put fish in the boat.
    I wanted to thank some great people that have been in my boat over the past few weeks and had some of there best days ever.

    Also the 53.25 that I boated a few weeks ago
    Keith Hammerbeck had a 3 fish day with me also one day, all nice fish
    The Family of Brett, Laura and his mom, boated 7 with me last week one day
    Rick and his Son Eric with 3 of there biggest ever including a 49
    also Fuzzy with his largest also to date a 49 too.

    Congrads to all on some hard days on the water

    The bite all around NE MN has been very good the past 3 weeks.
    The Big V Is really starting to heat up with some Big one being caught buy us, with a 55.5.


    Bob, Pete & I have some openings still left in Aug, sept oct

    Call to book your trip today.

    Default fish still going strong.

    We are heading into fall full steam ahead. Fishing continues to be good. I really started to notice definate feeding windows that open and close this past week. So save to high fives and backslapping for after the window closes, keep casting and stab another one.
    Here is a pic of 53.5 that I popped, was nice to have my sister and good friend Nick in the boat with this one.

    Good Luck,

    I went out with Dustin earlier in the week and he did an awesome job putting us on some fish. I tried piercing Dustin's ear on the first fish when the hooks let loose and the lure came flying straight at his head. Luckily he watched the event unfold and was able to duck out of the way. The next fish was this healthy 46.5" that ate at the boat on the turn. Dustin picked up another fish and we had another two follows.......all within 3 hours. Thanks Dustin!!

    Default 6 muskies in the Boat

    Congrats to Taylor and Colin Murphy on their six fish day with me yesterday. Casting took the stage today with some warmer weather. Twich baits and rubber where both hot. We boated 6 legals and lost 5 other fish. Only one fish on a sucker today. Water temps in the Hayward are around 46-50 depending on the lake. Here are some photos yesterday.

    Default Muskie Still on the Bite

    Well, we haven't seen this for a while at least in northern Wi and MN...last year at this time I was ice fishing for walleyes on six inches of ice. If a guy can pull himself out of the deer stand or off the couch and away from the NFL, the muskie are still going good and it looks like we'll be out until Nov. 30 this season. Suckers have been the go to. One, because at this time of the season I'm sick of casting over the six months and Two, the muskies eat'em. I'll report after the season with pics and a final muskie tally. It's been one hell of a year for me with numbers and BIG fish.

    Thumbs up Ending the season

    Well I fished all the way through November 30th. The last day we had to hook-ups on suckers but none in the boat. Only got to fish from 2:30pm to dark.

    Personal fish this season that I caught tallies are:
    117 muskies over 35 inches
    9 fish over 50 inches biggest 53.5 inches
    I had around 180-200 muskie enter my boat this season and 13 fish broke 50 inch mark this season.

    Default Here we go again!

    Well we are on the eve of the eve before muskie season opens here in Northern Wisconsin. Water temps. are up, fish should be active and willing to run some baits down. New weed growth and forage are things to look for as the season kicks off.
    Keep the reports and pictures coming itís nice to hear and see success of other anglers. Iíll try and report after the weekend.

    Good Luck and Tight Lines,
