Thanks for sharing Red Eagle and Jeff... that is a beautiful fish!!! Happy New Year
The photo below shows the comparative lengths and weights of 763 actual muskies (not caught in the TFF). It is useful to guesstimate the weight of a fish when told it's length. And I think TFF fish in the average are heavier than from a lot of other lakes
Forgot to mention in last post. I am quite certain it was 2016 and know I am within a 1/8" either way, 52-1/2" musky, caught by a guy who doesn't tell what he catches but was proud of the fish and didn't make it a secrete, not sure of the weight. I personally saw another avid flowage musky guy catch a 50" this past year.
Happy New Year.
Last post looking for ice report: Son fished yesterday around Norway point ( NW of fisherman's) landing said 12" of ice. He saw shanties out, lot of snowmobiles no vehicles yet from fisherman's anyway. I am quite sure the snowmobile trails across the flowage are marked.
Been busy so far with an interesting restoration project this winter, a two story, circa 1910 log cabin, cut in half rolled onto a poured basement slab, putting it back together, been as challenging as consistently catching walleyes on tip ups. No furnace yet so in past couple weeks after long days, ice fishing has lost a little appeal.
There was a week of posts that got deleted by the moderator, as I've said in the past being a moderator on Lake Link is as challenging as any of the above mentioned jobs. Most comments were in my opinion on task in a respectable manner with the topic at hand. From a moderators stand point ( imagine all the threads other than TFF thread they monitor ) it is more efficient to just card blanch wipe them all out. Problem for me was I spent a few hours thoughtfully responding to the various comments and interjecting my opinions. My typing went into an extended cocktail hour so instead of pressing the send button I thought I would wait until the next day to send for potential editing (older and wiser, maybe?) Posts gone. Worthy topic, public input needed, I will contact moderators next time it comes up.
Have fun ice fishing, stay safe.
