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'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.

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.
    • h8go4s
      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
