Just Wanted to give Chris Hanson a special thanks for all the hard work and effort that's he's been putting to Slabfest II. I know there's others involved with the whole operation also special thanks to all involved. It looks like it's going to be quite an event. For anyone who reads these forms and recognizes who is a regular to ULR and knows how to produce fish from it should be jumping at the chance to join this up comming weekends event. You'll get the chance to meet some real pro's to ULR. Mabey get the chance to increase our fishing skills. I know as soon as I read the post I talked with my two girls and signed up right away. Since then my 15 year old has had a 99-102 degree temp since last Saturday along with a bad sore throat and cold symptoms. Getting a throat culter done tomorrow. The 16 year old had 2 front teeth removed today to make room for 2 new ones ( braces ) I'm pretty sure she'll be fine by Saturday. I planned on comming up friday night and setting up in the general area and being mobile if needed. Not so sure the 15 year old will be well enough by then. I have my fingers crossed. It's still 48 hours from departure. My self and a buddy have our wheel house's on Winnie and leave them there mostly all winter. We pull them to URL an average 3-5 times a year. I have have fished every weekend since Jan. 1st so if I miss a weekend it's not like I haven't been fishing this year. I'm really looking forward to meeting the great people who work so hard to make URL a great fishing experience. grin.gif

I hope your girls are feeling better and can make the trip!

I don't want to take all the credit for making this happen. Its really just a bunch of us hooking up and doing a little fishing and hanging out!

Last winter, it was Kelly-P & Jonny-P that put the group on fish. I'm not taking any credit for that. We then all worked as a team to catch crappies and push each others trucks out of the crotch deep snow. smile.gif

Its going to be fun! Can't wait to meet everyone and get fishing!

See ya guys there!

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
