I'll be there. I'm working on Dan Thiem as well and from the sounds of it he and Alex might be making the trip as well.

Papa Grump how big is that cat in your avatar?

I'd put money on you if you would catch one of those during the event!! But getting him in would require you to be fishing in a spearhole.

Flowage should we hit up CoolCats? I think we could bring some of our river techniques to the event and have a good time! 17lber through the ice cough cough.

I don't suppose anybody would be willing to give me a ride out to the spot, as I am not familiar with the lake. I would be willing to meet you at the access or in Richmound.

As we get closer let people know when you'll be there. Hitching a ride shouldn't be an issue.

There's also a map posted in the thread where the link in my original post goes to.

See you there.

Wouldn't want to miss it! I am looking forward to this event. Hopefully I'll make a few new fishing buddy's. Maybe I'll have a panfish bite going nearby that some of us can take advantage of in the afternoon. smile.gif See you all there!

Brian, I guess I have been invited in on your group also by Jim from my bowling league.

What are you guys all bringing? Just portables or should I bring the wheeler too? I have a wheelhouse but that might be a little overkill.

Dave- just the portable is fine since we will be driving out to the spot and staying for most of the day. I'm bowling this Wednesday and will clue you and Jim in on the plans.

I will be leaving from Arlington alone, so if anyone will need a ride just holler. You can call me if you like. I believe I will be leaving my house around 5am, but if you would not be able to make that we might be able to change those plans a bit.

I would really like to come to this event since I love to go cat fishin in the open water but have never done it through the ice before...Is it a alright idea to bring my 13 and 11 yr old boys with or is it more of an adult thing? and also what do I bring for gear as in lures and bait?

I plan to be there in a few weeks. Working on the wife to have her come out to a Get together. IF the weather is good, I think she'll come...I've got my fingers crossed that she makes it out at least once this year smile.gif

Looking forward to meeting a lot of you for the first time!

mpsteckel- Defianately bring the boys along. Family,friends and kids are what this event is all about. Kids are the future of our sport and the more we get involved the better in the long run.

As far as gear I use my normal walleye setups. Glow red spoons always seem good!

Just watched the 5:00pm news on wcco.com. Sounds like we may get 8-14" of snow. However there is a possible chance a small band could come over us with over 15" of new white stuff. Lucky us mad.gif

Looking forward to the event but the weather , I am hoping, won't put a damper on our day.

Sounds like the snow will all be on the ground before the event. The problem will be getting out to the spot. We might try to snowmobile all the way from home out to the lake if I am in town, or trailer them to the lake. Com'n guys we are Minnesotans, a couple weak winters seem to have made some of us soft!!:)

      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.
    • Maverick1951
      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.

      fun time today  2 beasts still swimmin to get bigger

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.

      Yes just north of Cook.  They are open 7 days 8:00-4:30. Y-store is open 5am - midnight.
