Musky Fever 2011

Posted in Trip Reports on October 18th, 2011 by Kip – Be the first to comment

Well the fall Musky season is off to one of the best starts that I can remember.  We have boated several fish over 40″‘.  Things should only get better now that the water is really starting to cool off.    The season is just getting started as far as I’m concerned.   Patience is the key to chasing these large predators.  Hard work and lots of casting can make for a long day, but the reward is a memory that you’ll never forget.  We still have opening for the fall season.  Give us a call if you would like to chase the Alpha of the rivers here in Minnesota.

Opening Weekend 2011

What a great start to the 2011 season.  Friday found us on a great bluegill lake.  The weather north held off just long enough to get in a great day of Big Gills!   Some of these fish were pushing a pound.  All the fish were taken on top water bugs which just added to the fun.

Saturday found us on the St. Croix River.  Due to the high water on the Upper Mississippi we went to plan B.  The St.Croix is an excellent plan B and it didn’t disappoint.  The first fish of the day was a 20″ toad.  We watched fish after fish take our presentations.  It doesn’t get any better than watching big fish eat your fly.  The weather was great and the fishing remained strong all afternoon.  Congrats to Manny and Brian for a great start to a promising season.  Way to go guys!

Please join us for a Wisconsin C&R Trout Opener get together. Wildwood is hosting another fly tying day for those interested.  Let’s face it, there’s a lot of snow out there and do you really want to walk in that.  Then there’s the crowd to deal with.  Instead of all that, how about a little time tying until the snow melts and the crowds die down a bit.  Come join us on Saturday, March 5th at 12:00 noon. Stay until you are done. Bring your vice, materials, and creativity. We can talk about the up coming trout and bass season.  I would love to see what new and exciting patterns people have up there sleeves.   I love tying with other folks and watching them work. I always learn something new and enjoy watching other and the techniques they use. If you are interested, and would like directions, or more details, give us a call. Space is limited. 
We still have 4 openings for the Spring Creek weekend April 15th-17th, 2011.

Smallmouth dates are also filling up,  if you would like one now is the time to get it in the books.
Thanks and looking forward to seeing you on the 5th.
