WATERAMA ! (Glenwood)

Will be going for the first time this year. Seems like its a pretty big deal according to the locals I've talked too.

Anyone have any tips on the best place to watch the lake activities and fireworks from? How about any other cant miss things to do, see, eat or drink tongue.gif

Torgy's is probably the best place to hang out, drink some cocktails, and catch the fireworks. Minnewaska House will probably have the best live music, but won't be able to see the fireworks too well. I gave up on the street dance festivities years ago, but that's another option.

Warning to anyone attending though, don't drink and drive. Just about any vehicle driving around will be pulled over at some point. The local law enforcement will really be tight this weekend. Bustarama is back.

Forget Torgy's etc. The Lakeside Ballroom is the place where activities are centered including evening dances, fireworks, food, parade etc. Street or fairground parking, get somewhere between the Ballroom and beach for fireworks. The lake is great if you have a boat but be prepared for a long wait to get off the lake. We sometimes watch the parade in our boats close to shore, you can cool off in the lake and have a brew. NO DRINKING ON CITY PROPERTY! Have a great time and welcome to Glenwood Waterama. (25 years experience)

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!
