I had my ice fishing tent stolen 1/10. It's a blue clam 2000, the old one with a floor that folds up. It has my name and address above the left window, it has Gorilla tape on the right zipper. Left the tent on the ice while I went back to Gateway Lodge, came back 2 hours later and it was gone. Glad I took my gear with me. I thought fishermen were honest, but it's a different world than the one I grew up in. I'm getting up there in age, so at times, I would even leave it on the ice overnight. Fishing was slow, but did catch 7 nice crappies and 5 shorts in the two days. Called the sherriff and DNR...

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

Here is a 50" fish that I ended up getting 2 years ago on the Turtle for what it's worth.

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.

Jeff

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.

As far as you all are aware of, how recently has there been a 40 pound musky caught in the TFF?   Or if it was released and not weighed, at least 52.5 inches?   Thanks!
