Is there a bank where we can send donations? I can't attend but would love to help out Deb and Tom. Is there a silent auction type thing going? Maybe we can bid off the FM site. Sorry, if you read this please refer to the Burntside bash post for more info. Prayers.

Tunrevir I edited your post to say Tom not Steve. Tom is Debbie's long time boyfriend.

I dont know of a bank account yet.

You can send a check to me and I can get it there or you can send a check to Frank or Steve and they can get it to the proper hands. Check the Deb Redosovich Burntside Bash post for their adresses.

E-mail me if ya need my help.

We haven't really talked about a special fund set up for Deb through a bank, and I don't think we need to do that. I'm trying to keep it as simple as possible. I've already gotten a few e-mails from folks saying they were mailing me checks made out to Deb. I've got a box in my office where they'll all go for now. Send them my way or Frank's way or to Northlander, it's all good, and they'll get gathered at the Bash and combined into one big ole packet of caring to present to Deb.

Kallista its the thought that counts. I know Deb would understand your situation better than anyone. I hope all is going well with your daughter as well.

Maybe you can make it to the bash and give a little something there. Maybe make up some flies that we could raffle off? That would be great. Nothing like catching a fish on a flie/lure given to ya by a fellow FMer.

Hopefully if things go right we will be able to have Deb at the Bash and be able to say HI and give her a hug.

I believe that there has been an account already set up at Republic Bank in Esko for Deb. I will call her sister and find out for sure and post info in case folks want to go that route.

All three of us will be at the dinner on Monday, we'll see you all there.

Kallista,

That's quite a haul for a person to make on a Monday night coming from Ely. You are such a kind hearted lady. The flies are a great contribution.

I just got off the phone with Deb's sister and she said they are hoping for a good turnout tonight, and that little by little Deb is making progress each day.

See you all there tonight. Drive safe.

WOW! What a turn out. Over 600 people came to the event and looked like lots of people were bidding in the silent auction.

Nice to see all the FMers there showing their support.

A big thanks to Ripstick and Everett for their donations into the FM kitty for Deb. I know she wil appreciate it guys.

Now I will see ya all at the bash. Bring on the ice.

I was amazed when we pulled into the parking lot and there was no place to park. It was great to see such a large turn out for such a worth while cause.It was nice to see fellow FMers and to get some time to chat with Tom (Skippers Kid) about Deb to get a more detailed description on her progress. I really hope and pray that she will make it to the Bash.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      I never made it out Monday was too tired from fishing Friday - sunday didn't feel like getting up early

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!

      Anyone have an ice report out from bug bee? Thanks
