Cool Cats 2008

21 posts in this topic

There is a thread started about this in the FM Gatherings forum with more info and map but this is another place it belongs.

On Saturday March 1st there will be an FM gathering on Horsehoe lake fishing for catfish. Last year it was cancelled because of all the snow but hopefully this year will work out. There seems to be alot of new people on this St. Cloud forum now so would be nice to see some of you out there.

I'll be there like other years. It's a fun event with a good turn out. A great opportunity to meet fellow FMer's.

I'm planning on heading out to horseshoe on tuesday. Any info on the ice conditions you guys could give me would be much appreciated. I've only accessed the lake from the south side and was wondering how the conditions from the north side lot are.

My 10 yr old daughter has been asking about the cool cats get together since August. We're definitely planning on attending again this year.

Moosedrool I saw vehicles all over Horseshoe two weeks ago already. That being said you still have to be careful on that lake, I wouldn't venture far off the main driving areas if you don't know the lake. Good luck and let us know how you do.

Tippmann,

my plan was derailed this morning. Need to get some carpet put in downstairs and they have an opening tomorrow morn. I should have found a slacker installer cry.gif. What a kick in the shorts.

Thanks for the info though.

I will be there, but i have a few questions. I am going to be coming by myself and have never fished the lake and was wondering if there is a road plowed out there or a definate path that i would be able to follow.

I'm planning on attending as well. Hopefully be on ice around 7:30, I'll be going by myself. See you all out there!

Can a car make it out there and park w/o getting stuck?

Hoppe there is usually a pretty beaten path off the winter access.

Yes, there is a path out to the meth hole. If you are driving south from Richmond on hwy 22, you will see the gathering on your right side as you cross over the bridge.

Between the path and the map provided in the Fm Get-togethers thread you shouldn't have any problem finding it. When I was out there the other day a car would have no trouble getting around off the trail.

      I think with the current forecast there will be ice fishermen/women on URL by the 20th. It'll be bitterly cold, which is excellent, but the snow puts a hamper on things...

      all good advice, but with first ice I will avoid going out in the dark until the ice is a thicker. Ice is never safe, play it smart. looking forward to getting out soon

      I also use braid for my decoys and suckers  I think I even have a steel leader on one of them and never had problem with them spooking,  I built a wood floor for my but and use PVC poles to hand my decoys, GoPro, spinner etc works great and can slide them out of the way when not in use.
