WBL Metro Get Together Jan. 15th

182 posts in this topic

What: Metro Get Together.

When: January 15th.

Where: White Bear Lake.

Time: 10.00am

Parking: Ramsey Beach on White bear Lake.

I wanted to start a "NEW" thread for the WBL get together. I know some of you posted you were going or maybe interested in participating in it. I went to my first Metro Get Together two years ago at Phalen Lake and had a blast. I continue to fish with many of the folks I met there.

Please respond if you are going to go or if you have any questions.

Flatter me with a maybe. grin.gif

One last thing. Does anybody want to pre-fish WBL before the event?...if so let me know please.

Peace,

SmellyJelly

I will be there for sure, and wouldn't mind pre-fishing. I spent a fair amount of time there this summer but have never been on the hard water there. I'm off all next week if any of that will work.

Ramsey beach is the one up in the North/West corner, right?

Mr. Jelly sir,

I'll likely be there. I'd be up for any pre-fishing as well, seeing as how the thin ice up until now means I've saved a lot of fishing hours up for use in January.

Hmm...

I'm off both Monday and Tuesday of this week (tommorow and tuesday)

I have a 2 man clam-like shelter (think its frabill- haven't opened it. Got it from my uncle. But its nice and small and very easy to pull.) and a Strikemaster 2hp 8" assuming I can get it to fire up (those who were there at the Minnetonka event prally remeber the problems I had with it last year wink.gif ). I do NOT have a heater or a lantern however (though I may get one soon)

I'm planning on going out somewheres tommorow, and wasn't sure where. I'm also up for Tuesday as well if thats better. Get a meeting time and date- we might as well start off the Ramsey county beach as well. I don't know what spots are in walking distance as I've only ice-fished White bear a couple of times.

Should work. Set a time. If you want my cell phone # and such- send me an e-mail at gamemaster@mngamer.com

I'll keep my equipment, house etc on reserve in the case we get more people who show up if they don't have one, but I won't bring it unless we do. I'll be checking this thread, if anyone wants to meet up and borrow it for the day- lemme know.

I will try to make it on Tuesday as well. I have to check with the sitter first. I'll check back here for a time to meet. I have never fished the north side of the lake, always stayed south of the rock bar so I am looking forward to it.

Smellyjelly, for a worthy cause I'll be happy to skip out on work for Tuesday afternoon. Post where & when you guys are going to meet or be, I could be there as early as noon or so.

I do really well on White Bear in the spring but It’s been a bit of a mystery to me during hard water. I’ve fished the areas in front of the VFW, Bellaire, and Ramsey beach and never have had much luck.

Looking forward to meeting some of you guys.

Hey Smelly,

Long time since I ran into you on Phalen. I'm going out with my brother Tuesday and was thinking about giving WBL a shot. We won't hit the ice until noon or so, but I would like to say hello. What are you fishing out of? I'll be in a Frabill Ranger 2-man.

Ack! Yeah.. I was away from the computer for most of the day. Got out on a local pond in the Morning (and iced a 17" bass out of it O.O) and then was out of the house for most of the day seeing a movie and other things.

This being said its 2am- I am not going to be able to make it there by 8. The Noon meet time I should be able to make, however.

Smelly- I did get your cell #. I will give you a call when I get to the Ramesy County beach tommorow. Should be around 12ish. I will also check this tommorow morning as well for updates. Should I still plan on just bringing the rods? Or do you want the shack as well?

Cralerman,

Sounds like you had your plate full yesterday. Just bring your rods and tip ups.

Fleeced,

Long time no see. I will be in a green otter and I will be wearing black bibs and red jacket. Look for a small group of us...or call my cell phone if you like.

Hope to see you out there.

Peace,

SmellyJelly

Any newbies welcome to tag along? Fairly new to the forum, and to icefishing. It would be great to put a face to some of the people that have been dropping pointers. I've got all my basic gear, no power auger just a hand auger, but it works. Always looking for someone to fish with and WBL is my old neighborhood!

spatciccp, smellyjelly's probably on the lake already, but if you want to show up, the more the merrier. I for one only have met one of the people who'll be on WBL today.

I'll be at the Ramsey beach around noon as well, sounds like there will be a few people showing up in that time frame. If you show up, you're going to have to translate that handle for me. smile.gif I'll be in the old, battered black Eclipse.

I will be there around noon as well, I'll bring my house and gear but not the auger as it sounds like there will already be one or two. I can only stay for a few hours but that will be ok as this is my first time out this year.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
