FM SW MN get together

22 posts in this topic

Fellas, I'm thinkin aboot putting an FM get together, together this summer. Very informal, no tournament or that type of jazz. Just us FM'ers getting together for a day of fishing, telling lies, sharing tips, and throwing some brats on the grill.

I'd like to have a place with 1- decent fishing, 2- a nice boat ramp, 3- some type of park/picnic area for grillin, hangin out, etc, 4- possibly camping if guys want to.

My thoughts are Lake Sarah county park, Lake Shetek state park, Lake Talcot county park, or Lime Lake county park.

Hit me with some input, thoughts, suggestions on where YOUS GUYS would like to do this.

Boiler, willing to help if you want. I live on West Graham all summer in Maka Ouici in my camper and there are usually plenty of open spots for camping with a nice playground, pavillion for grilling and picinc and you have many options for fishing with Talcot 5 miles, right on West Graham, and East Graham just 1 mile down the road. The landing at talcot is a little issue but I am working on getting some funding to have the ramp cleaned out for better assessability from our local fishing club. Any help you need shoot me a message.

Mark your calanders fellas, Saturday June 9.

I have no idea where or other plans quite yet. The Mrs and I are going to do a little driving around and scouting stuff out this upcoming weekend.

Muc, I didn't even think of West Grahm. I'll keep it in mind. Thanks.

Any other input from you fellas is surely welcome.

YIKES, I will be sailing the lovely waters of Lac Suel that week, leaving the 2nd and coming back home the 10th. Guess I will have to scratch another gettogether. I always get bungled up on the get together dates. Well still let me know if you need any help with anything.

Houseboat we have a group of 6 and another group of 10 from the Worthington area at the same time. We get a 65 footer, they get the 75. Great time! So many walleye's and smallies you almost get sick of catching so many... ok I said ALMOST!

I am mad that I will miss a get together in my back yard. It sounds like a great time. And you will all miss my famous fresh picked West Graham grilled asparagas tips. But I will surely think of all my FM companions while my rod tip bends 100 times a day at Lac Suel!!!!

Don't worry. We'll leave you a little something. Maybe a carp or 3 by your camper. You know, as a friendly reminder that you should have changed the date of your trip. grin.gif

Sarah will probably be the best bite around that time of year. Lots of boat traffic though.

My wife would love the bullheads, please clean them. she will be there. That would save me from having to buy a present while I am in Canada!!!!! Hey Boiler, I saw the extended extended extended forcast and the weather looks really bad that weekend, you better move it to the weekend after........ guilt sometimes works on my kids yet. So I try.

      I have not been on Rainy much as of late. On June 12, I got 75 walleyes in about 6-8 FOW. On. June 15 (Sanctuary opener) I hit Stangi for several hours and only got four fish. June 17, got 20 fish in about five hours - mostly walleyes on a weed edge in about 8 feet of water. Many on jig with Lunker CIty trailers. Also some good ones on a feather jig. Bass were few and far between. Plus some pike but nothing huge. Biggest walleyes 24-25". Bass 18", pike 29". View my fishing report to see videos of lures that were working.   I did mark lots of fish in deeper water but they were dink walleyes so I did not fish them for long.The dinks are actually harder to catch on lures than bigger ones. They respond better to live bait which I don't use.

      We had a good bite on 1/2 crawlers today! Boated 45 walleyes and kept our limits of fish that were all between 15-1/2" and 19-3/4 "! Released at least 6 slot fish. Largest was a fat 25-1/2 inch fish. Best over all sized fish limit all summer! The walleyes were stuffed with either May fly nymphs or molted crayfish.

      I've fished the hex hatch many times. In wisconsin.The hexs are out at my lakevplace in grand rapids Mn.  its usually a little later on the river. So this weekend into next week and the following week ought to be good. Late in the evening.. like  9:30 on...  I haven't been to the straight for years... I wish you'd let me know how it goes...

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Then Crooked lake pier fits the bill they like corn or worms   or what city are you looking around?

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)
