Yearly Attempt at a FM Metro Get-Together!

99 posts in this topic

Hey fellow Metro Ice-Fisherman!

I've had a few requests now to put together a Metro FM Get-Together. I'm a pretty busy little dude come winter, spending most of my time outside the metro, but meeting a number of folks who fish locally is always fun too!

A Metro Get-Together will more than likely happen on a Saturday sometime this winter. The lake is still yet to be determined and is open to popular opinion!

As with all FM Get-Togethers, the premise is "fun", "fellowship", "fishing" , and just hanging out and having a good time. Anglers of all skill levels are welcome!

We obviously have some great lakes in the metro to choose from so throw out your votes wisely! Will it be Tonka? Medicine? White Bear? Forest? Calhoun? Nokomis? Prior? or???? Outer metro lakes are options as well such as Sarah or further north to Rush.

I've got a couple bait shops in mind that would more than likely be willing to "sponsor" the event but details would obviously have to be worked out!

This is a topic to way your opinion and interest if you are interested and lets get the ball rolling, eh? grin.gif

I would second Prior Lake, since I could probably make that one.

I would definitely be willing to go to this depending on location. My vote is for Tonka though but I would not object to Prior either. grin.gif

I'll be there. I second prior or Tonka. Also, Bald Eagle might be an idea as well as FL.

I'd show to Prior or Tonka, but others wouldn't be bad either. Isn't Medicine also a likely spot from years past? We could even go as soon as Sat the 22nd (before Christmas) if it worked out on short notice.

I would love to get out somewhere and meet up with some members from FM.

I've never fished Tonka or Prior so my vote would be for one of them.

I'm relatively new to the FM site, but I wouldn't mind joinging the crew for an outing... I like the idea of Prior.

I'm in!

How 'bout if we do 2, 3 or 4 then we can hit tonka, prior, medicine, calhoun. Maybe 1 each month???

Or is that too much work?

I'll be there. FM gatherings in the past have been great, especially if we choose a day when there isn't a -20 windchill (anyone else remember that day on White Bear?).

I like the idea of Prior or Tonka. I've never fished either so would be nice to try it out with people that have fished it before. If we can do it between the 18th and early Jan I can bring my Dad with since my folks will be in town for Christmas.

Prior's a great lake to try. I was out there quite a few times last year and would almost always find the crappies. Sandmannd, shoot me an e-mail and I'll tell you where to go.

I'm game for most lakes- I'd just need to know far enough in advance to make the needed arrangements.

Prior or Tonka are good options as well as any other mentioned.

I live a mile away from Prior and have only ice fished it twice... crazy.gif

Looks like its going to be a good turn out already based on the replies. cool.gif

      As far as I'm aware, the two main spawning spots are the Pike River on the east end and Black Lake on the west end. That said I think that walleye are probably spawning in many different areas around the lake. IMO it's kind of fun to look for those hidden gem areas.

      Information about chronic wasting disease and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ management response to its discovery in two deer near Lanesboro will be the focus of a public meeting from 7-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 15, at the Fillmore Central School Auditorium, 702 Chatfield St., in Preston.  DNR staff will explain the disease and why a quick and aggressive response is the most effective way to limit its spread. They also will discuss response measures including establishment of a disease management zone, a special winter deer hunt, landowner shooting permits and the necessity to conduct an aerial deer population survey. Representatives from other state agencies and deer hunting groups also will be available to answer questions. Chronic wasting disease is a fatal brain disease to deer, elk and moose but is not known to affect human health. Prior to this discovery, the disease has only been found in Minnesota in one wild deer harvested near Pine Island in 2010. For more information, including maps of chronic wasting disease surveillance areas, common questions and answers and hunter information, visit the DNR’s CWD homepage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.
