A Spring Cleaning - FM Get-Together

2 posts in this topic

All,

Looking for a way to scratch the open water itch prior to the 2007 MN Walleye Opener? You are invited to participate in what is sure to be another fun and exciting FM Get-Together. "A Spring Cleaning" has been set for Saturday, May 5 on Lake Tetonka. We will meet as a group by 8:00 am at the public landing near Best Point and drop our boats in the water. We'll plan to fish until ~11:00 am, reel 'em up, come in to have lunch and then do a clean-up around the perimeter of the lake and at the landings for an hour or so. Once the clean-up is completed, for those interested, we will head back out onto the lake for some more fishing until sun-down.

If you have a boat, please plan to bring it. If you do not have a boat, do not let that prevent you from coming. We'll figure something out to make sure you can get out on the water. As for lunch, bring whatever you wish and we can have a "picnic" of sorts. These types of things will not be provided. Whichever direction you are coming from, I encourage you all to stop at Hermie's, Reel Fishing and Tackle or Axel's for your tackle and live bait needs. Tom will be bringing the trash bags for the clean-up portion of the Get-Together, so we should be all set with that. Again, this is sure to be a great day with friends, both new and old, so we look forward to a nice turn-out. Please respond to this post if you plan to attend. Personally, I look forward to seeing many of you there.

Bring on the crappies and 'gills!

I plan on being there unless Frank calls and says the smelt are running. If that happens, I will see that the garbage bags are there. confused.gif

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.

      The fact that ppl have to reserve a campsite is absolute BS. The only thing the park accomplished by making ppl reserve campsites is lowering the amount of ppl who visit the park.
