Prairie Polebender June 9

1 post in this topic

Everyone,

You are all invited to be part of history in the making. The first annual "Prairie Polebender" on beautiful Lake Shetek, Saturday June 9. We'll all meet at "Trails Edge" at 7:00 am. They open at 6 if you want to come early and get some breakfast. We'll launch from Lake Shetek State Park so you'll need a sticker on your tow vehicle. We can fish until noon or 1-ish, come on in, toss some brats on the weber, tell a few lies about the big one that was ALMOST in the boat, share a few tactics and head back out.

If you have never been to that state park you're in for a treat. They have a very nice boat landing with a good break if it's windy and plenty of parking. The picnic area is right next to the boat landing.

Getting there is easy. From the city of Currie, take CTY 38 towards the state park. There are large signs on the HWY. It's aboot 1 1/2 miles to Trails Edge.

Shetek is an interesting lake and has many species. It's known for it's Walleye, but it also supports a healthy population of Crappie, Perch, Snot Rockets, and Catfish.

You only have one opportunity to be part of the "First Time." If you have a boat, great bring it. If you don't haved a boat that shouldn't stop you. We'll figure something out, I have room for 3 in mine. Bring the kids, bring a friend, bring the wife/g-friend/significant other.

Looking forward to meeting yous guys and spending a day on the lake with ya!

      Thanks Cliff. It looks like I'll bring tall boots, ice crampons, and snowshoes for my walk across the lake on Friday! Who knows what I'll encounter

      I fished north of Two Harbors on Sunday and it was a mess.  The plowed areas had a good 4-5" of standing water, the rest was slop and slush about 1/2 way up to my knee. There was plenty of ice, and there were 4-5 pickups out there, but I scouted it out with the ATV and elected to walk to my spot rather than risk getting stuck in the muck.  This was of course before the rain Monday, so I can only imagine what it's like now.

      Del,   You know what they say about opinions and a certain part of the anatomy don't you. That said, you've made your point but it's now time that you step out for some fresh air and give this rant of yours a break.     Good luck to the Landing's new owners. Restaurants are a tough gig anywhere and I sincerely wish you the best and hope you'll succeed.   John

      Although down riggers aren't required, they sure are nice.  I'very really become a fan of copper lately.  The newer stuff is easier to work with and has caught more fish for me over lead core over on Lake Michigan.      I agree that unless you're using the suffix lead core the 47s don't leave a lot if room for backing.  Definitely use braid for backing.  I like to splice 20 ft of 30 lb mono between the core and backing to clip boards to.   I do the drag upgrades too.  When you get the diameter down the drags aren't as forgiving.
