The Otter Run - FM Get-Together!

2 posts in this topic

Bring on the ice because it's time for The Otter Run! This FM Get Together in South Central MN has been scheduled for Saturday, January 5 and will be held on Lake Frances.

This event has been put together for men, women and children of all ages to join in on the action and there is no cost to attend! Be prepared for a day of ice fishing and socializing, as well as on-ice seminars that will give you an opportunity to learn some "tips and tricks" from our Fishing Minnesota Pro Staff.

The event will begin by meeting at Reel Fishing and Tackle in Madison Lake, MN at 7:00 am. This will give you a nice opportunity to meet our South Central Forum sponsor and pick up some bait and tackle before heading to the lake.

We will leave Reel Fishing and Tackle as a group by 7:30 am and head to Lake Frances to chase down whatever will tug on our lines. If you are not able to meet at Reel Fishing and Tackle in Madison Lake, MN, you will find us near the public access on the E end of the lake. That is the access where we will "launch" from.

There will be lunch breaks on the ice as well as a social event in the evening when we've had enough! Feel free to bring whatever you'd like to eat and drink as these things will not be provided.

Please respond to this post if you plan to attend. I hope to see many new and old faces!

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      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!
