1st Ice Event on Fish Lake Sat Dec. 8th

109 posts in this topic

Well guys we are shooting for Sat Dec 8th out of High Banks Resort. I have Cabins 3 and 4 reserved for Friday/Sat.

I will need a idea of how many guys want to stay those nights so if I need to cancel 1 cabin I can do so in time.

As usual support Tim at High Banks for all he does for this event.

Im hoping ice is good enough for wheelers/sleds. It was at this time last year, we went all over the lake but by the bridge and D a m of course.

So lets hear who all will be there.

I will be fishing all day Friday if anyone wants to join me.

Last time I came down I got such a wild ride over the ice that I had two rods broken for me and the terminals on my Vex battery turned completely into pretzels. Thank God I had my camera gear in a fully padded bag or I'd be talking $10,000 in ruined gear. Not really eager to have that happen again. Can't afford to spend that kind of money on top of $3.09/gallon gas. blush.gif

If I come down this time, I'll be on my own and happy to be that way. grin.gif

If its safe for wheelers I will be there. Last year I was on foot and had to rely on a ride from Northalnder. Thanks for the lift Steve but I hate imposing on others. It will be a one day only event for me, but I had a good time and caught a few fish last year.

Reminds me, gotta start planning for another Minnesueing outing.

So that was your ice rods that poked holes in my new Otter?grin.gif

Not to mention all your busted cans of Diet Coke everywhere. shocked.gif

Even with all that I seem to remember I guided you on a 26" eye. wink.gif It was worth it.

Of coarse I'll be there.

Hey Gang,

I'm happy to say that Hunting season is over and I'm looking forward to getting out on the ice. I have the whole weekend off including Friday. So count me in for any and all fishing that will be taking place. I have a couple four wheelers that I or someone else can bring up for us to use. I will be staying at home also.

I'll be there with wheeler again. Hopefully, this time, there is no towing of broken down snowmobiles on the ice!

I'm waiting. Hope Gander has some good "day after thanksgiving" sales! I'm looking forward to their Ad coming in!

"will frank be doing the rat dance agian."

LOL, I had almost forgot about that one grin.gif He's (the rat) probably still having bad dreams about that little incident !!

I will be there with Junior, sled and Otter in tow. Will try to see if I can get friday off too, tho Jr has school in the afternoon. Will be staying at home.

Looks like some cool nights/days coming that will hopefully give us some good ice by then.

Casey,

I have only heard of the stories on this matter. I'm not the person with any photos. I didn't even get a first hand look at Frank's Moon Walk (Dance) that took place the year before. It just seems to get better each year!!!

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      lol I posted that Friday but with no service it must went when I ran into town for new hose

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.
