We've got a good mix of Pro Staff who will be around for the weekend, so this should be interesting and fun. Whoever thought walleyes could bring a diverse group of people together. grin.gif

Big Thanks to Paul & Appledoorn's for organizing this little Get-Together! It will be a fun and informational time!

Man that is a great deal and I would love to take you up on that. My wife and I have adoption classes for 8 hours those two days so I won't be able to make it up. I hope you have this again sometime.

I can't wait for this one to come. After spending time at Appeldoorns this winter I can't wait to get back up there. Even if the weather is bad we'll be in first class accomodations.

My buddy and I are going to try to make the trip. I have had some of my best fishing experiences on ML in early October. If my buddy buys the boat he is looking at, we will be up there, mine just doesn't quite cut it out past the opening to Isle Bay in the October wind and waves. How many rooms do you guys have available for the weekend?

polarsusd81,

We still have rooms available so if you and your buddy can make it, give us a call.

If there are a couple guys with open seats, I would love to come up and meet some of the other members and tag along. Maybe we should start an open seat roll call for the get together and there might be others interested as well. I really love fishing the big lake in October but I just know my boat (14' Lund with a 15 horse) wont cut it out there.

If you have an open seat, make a reply.

If you are looking for an open seat, do the same.

Fellas, opportunity only knocks so many times, and this is trophy time on the big pond!!!!!! Plus, you get a chance to sit around a bon fire and pick on your friendly neighborhood FM pro-staff to boot!!! Call Paul at Appledorns and sign up for this.

I have a 16' Starcraft with a 70 HP Johnson. It's far from the most comfortable ride, but it's a boat and it floats. I'll make room for one more guy in my boat.

I just sent an email to Paul confirming my wife and I are joining in.

I've fished the fall night bite on the west side for at least 8 years, but I've never fished the East side, day or night. I'll need tips on where to go. I have a handheld GPS (iFinder Expedition) with a navionics premium chip, so I should be able to avoid the rocks....

My wife is very unlikely to fish at night (unless its calm and warn, and then not too late), so I'll either have an open seat or look to ride with someone else.

I'm looking forward to seeing Paul and Borch again (its been a few years), and meeting the rest of you!

Fischer's is usually good in Fall. I can make a few calls and find out what's going on.

I may be in the same situation as far as night fishing. I'm not sure if my wife will go out either.

      Nice fish rick and thanks for letting them go!!

      Went out to Otter Lake (next to Bald Eagle) on Wednesday, a lake filled with hammerhandles and could barely make out three small pike in the dirty water before giving up.  Was up on a lake in the Horseshoe chain that is also supposed to be filled with small pike and saw zero but the wife caught a small on a tip-up.  At least a big catfish came in and sat at the bottom of the hole for well over an hour.

      Only a few tiny ones..... Pays to get the hell away from the crowd...

      That’s a bucket list trip for me.  No reason that I haven’t been there yet outside of the fact it isn’t in my normal territory.  And that’s an ironic statement for me to make! Come to think of it, I should just plan it and go.  It’ll never happen otherwise.  Anybody got any pointers for heading that direction?  I wouldn’t even know where to start.  Pretty self sufficient for gear and travel and could figure it out eventually but a helping hand or even a guide reference would be appreciated.
    • Jim Almquist
      The ice is gone now. More than likely won't be anymore this year.
    • Tom Sawyer
       that reminds me the batteries on that GPS tracker hid somewhere on your truck are running low. The red blinking light on the base unit here at home, sure has been annoying. Can't believe it showed you were out fishing in the wind, close to home anyway, today.

      Upper Red nears record winter harvest Ice fishing on Upper Red Lake has slowed in recent weeks, but the walleye harvest is on track to set or approach a wintertime record, numbers from an annual winter creel survey show. According to Henry Drewes, regional fisheries supervisor for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources in Bemidji, anglers through January had kept about 125,000 pounds of walleyes. The wintertime high for Minnesota's portion of the lake was slightly more than 140,000 pounds in 2015, DNR statistics show. Anglers harvested 109,327 pounds of walleyes in the winter of 2017, according to DNR creel survey results. "If we have an average February, we'll be right in that area" of 140,000 pounds, Drewes said. "Catch rates and pressure have really tapered off in the last (few weeks). I think that's related to winter fatigue and a slower bite." Wheel houses, which have exploded in popularity among winter anglers in recent years, now account for more than 80 percent of the ice fishing pressure on Upper Red, Drewes said. Anglers on Upper Red can keep four walleyes, of which only one can be longer than 17 inches. Walleye and northern pike season on Upper Red and other Minnesota inland waters closes Sunday, Feb. 25 and reopens Saturday, May 12. The Minnesota DNR manages 48,000 acres of Upper Red, while the remaining 72,000 acres are within the boundary of the Red Lake Indian Reservation and managed by the Red Lake Band of Chippewa. -- Brad Dokken Grand Forks Herald

      Same for me on Green by Princeton once it got dark the fish started biting. I was marking them and only had 4 bites while the sun was up. 
    • JBMasterAngler
      Was on North Center yesterday. Crappies were easy to find, but they would not bite for nothing! Somehow coaxed 2 into biting, so I avoided the skunkaroo. The vexilar began to light up more, and the fish began to move up and down the column a little bit more as evening progressed. So maybe, the bite would have picked up as the sun went down. However, by then, the kids were ready to leave, so maybe I’ll find out next time. On a side note, this was by far the thickest ice I’ve drilled through (30 to 32 inches) with my ion in the 3 years I’ve had it. Was impressed.
