Second Annual Trout Day

Recommended Posts

Jim W

Hello ALL!!

Well, I am starting to get busy with this years Trout Day, so it must be getting close!

I am still in the process of solidifying guest speakers and other details etc.

I am hoping to have all taken care of by mid week(next week),let's hope!?

I hope you can make it!?
The weather will be as good as last year, the door prizes more prevelant, the fishing information more detailed and encompassing.

Be prepared to win an evening(that evening out fishing with yours truly, fishing for some mongo brown trout!)

So if you want one, you'll have to come down to get any. smile.gif

Update:

AN addition to the (if I may say so) fine collection of door prizes,

Mel Dickie, located in Wild Goose Sports in Rochester,Mn is graciously willing to donate
another rod this year for Trout Day.

As of late, Mel's health hasn't been the greatest, but he didn't hesitate to make the offer! As a friend and a Master rod builder, I thank you again Mel for your donation!

If the chance of winning one of Mel's rods isn't incentive enough to check out Trout Day, I don't know what else is??

Maybe I should put my name in the hat, so I can bend one of Mel's fine works of art!!!LOL

Update:

Both Rochester Culver's restaurants, locally owned and operated, have graciously decided to sponsor this years Trout Day.

Now with a South location, to and from fishing streams in SE MN you can hit'em up for some fine food!!! Yes I'll plug them! Not only for their sponsorship directly, but for any business that is willing to go out on the limb for good causes. Especially a business that supports concerns related to SE MN streams and rivers.

WHen you do stop in, ask for Steve(owner), if he isn't swamped I bet he would love to talk trout fishing!!!

Try the Philly steak basket, my personal fave!!!!!!

Thanks again Steve!!!!!!!

If you didn't see this on the Touney/Events forum:

Clemetson's resort has donated a two day stay at their fine fishing destination and Bruce Mosher from Today's Tackle has donated some gear as well!!

I sure hope a few of you out there can make it this year!!?

It's less than 2 weeks away!!!!!

Keep the rods bendin'!!!

Jimmy,
Thanks for the kind words! I've put quite a bit of time into this. If I get a good enough response this year, I will continue in the future, increasing the format with more presentations,seminars etc.

I had to somewhat gage it on last years attendance. Being the first year last year, things have already improved. Increased door prize donations, scheduled agenda and hopefully attendance!

See you there! I'll be the guy all excited, doing a lot of talking!!!

Hi Jim W,

We're planning to bring the kids (after an 8:00am soccer game), who have recently caught the fishing bug. I had the privilege to work with Steve about 10 years ago, and am pleased to see the Culver's sponsorship (and success).

See ya Saturday!

Hi Ted,

Look forward to having you at Trout Day. Currently I have Minn Aqua scheduled for the afternoon, but recently asked if they could have youth fishing stuff going on through out the day. Otherwise, things don't really get going until 10:00am. I personally don't know how long a youth soccer game lasts. I do know that it takes about 45 minutes from Rochester to get to the park!

Pray for warmer air!!

Well, with this interesting weather forecasted for Saturday, I imagine some of you would rather stay indoors?

ANyway, for those of you who do make it I plan on getting the coals stoked in the Pavillion's fireplaces. There is an indoor section and an open air section ,to keep warm/warm up or come out of any inclimate weather. You notice I didn't say the "r" word?(plus the less people there, the better chance of winning a door prize!HEHEHEHHE)

If any one has any more questions, post'em!!

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      I will be out on Blue on Saturday morning. ... see you out there

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.  
    • Wanderer
      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.
    • Wanderer
      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.
    • Hawg
      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel. 
    • PRO-V
      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.
