Get together update for June 9th

40 posts in this topic

The last report I got from the park in Warroad is that

they will NOT have their construction complete by the

date of our planned day on LOW. Walleye Jon was nice

enough to have us all to this spot in the campground

that he assures me will do the job nicely.

So, our next step is to find out who is planning to

attend, what there needs are and what they can bring.

Jeff Beckwith, from Scenic Tackle is bringing his fish

cookers again (and oil, I think). I am bringing something

but my wife hasnt told me what it is yet.

We need.....Paper plates, cups, utinsils, paper towels,

catsup, salt&pepper, tartar sauce, chips, pickles a few

salads, beans, potatos(Jeff can deep fry tator tots, ummm)

, some deserts and a few big garbage bags.

I will also bring some name tags so that It will be easy to

remember ah ummmm errrr names of fellow FMers.

Lets call the roll here and lets get ready for a fun day

on the water and in the campground June 9th

I got the catsup, tarter sauce, and garbage bags covered. You guys should throw one of those cheap plastic cutting boards in with your fishing stuff when you're getting ready. The temporary fish cleaning area is only a couple painted picnic tables, so they'll help in keeping the fillets from getting too dirty.

Fish should be congregating in shallow real soon. So far minnows have been the ticket both on jigs and spinners. Crawlers and leeches should work fine by then though. Throwing a slip bobber out will be another choice if you find a good school around some weeds, and you can pretty much always catch fish pulling cranks. If that's you're game plan, make sure you have a few that run real shallow, like 2-5 feet. If you haven't put new line on in a while, you'll want to do that too. The fish really pull hard when they're in close, and there are a lot of 20 plusses being caught on regular basis. Look forward to seeing everyone, and have a safe trip.

I am planning on making it. The only thing that will change it is if the contractor I am working with decides to work Sat. But I don't think that will happen. My dad will be coming along and I might possible have 1 more. I will be bringing something but not sure yet as to what.

I hope I can't make it. June 9th is the final day for the FLW tournament on Devils Lake I'm fishing, so hopefully I'm in the top ten. But with my luck this year, there might be a chance I'll get to the get-together

I talked it over with my mom(home ecom. teacher) this weekend she said she would send a salad or two with my dad for the weekend and I sure could pick up a couple bags of tater tots no problem there so put me down for that. I can't wait for this weekend I have been really looking foward to it.

Walleyejon you better leave some fish in the lake for me grin.gif.

There will be one or two left for ya Jason, but you better let your dad catch them.

BKB, I assume you're bringing your own boat? Just wondering if you have a radio so I can call when I get up there Friday. If so, who should I put a shout out for? Most everyone is on Ch 6.

Since no one has said much about the timing of this shindig, I thought I would throw this out there.....Meet at the landing and launch boats between 7:30 and 8 am. The little twist I was thinking of would be to keep in touch on the radio (someone pick a channel besides 6) and head back in when we figure we have enough fish for frying, or one/two o'clock whichever is later. If we still need more fish, we stay out, if we have enough, we head in, clean them up, and chow down. That way we could be back out on the water for the afternoon/evening bite, with full bellys and empty live-wells. Come back in around eightish maybe?Maybe fry a few more fish, and sit around the campfire at my camper one-upping each other with fishing stories. If we have to stay out past two due to lack of fish, then we can just stay out until around 6 or 7pm like we've done in the past. Anyone have any opinions on doing it this way?

Kaz: I believe you're fishing the East Side? Would eightish work for you guys for dinner?

If anyone could bring a couple chunks of wood for the fire,it would be greatly appreciated.

Jon: I will have my Son and two Grandsons with (9 yrs), so I think we'll just "play it by ear". If they get tired we will head back after we eat if that gets later in the day.. Looking forward to seeing all of you guys again.... I'll bring a few pieces of fire wood too.. Kaz

Bear: This is a F/M group, and since your a member, we'd like you to attend. We all would like to meet those who post here, so if your near Warroad Saturday morning around 7am to 8am, meet us at the launch. If you have a Marine radio on board you can look for us on channel 6 or 82.. Hope to see you there Kaz smile.gif PS If you bring your own refreshments and a dish to pass, that would be good..

Well, it looks like we are covered. At this point it looks

like the weather will be nice. See you all at the Warroad

boat landing Saturday morning....

Someone mentioned a banner.....I dont think I can hustle

up a FishingMinnesota.com banner but I will bring a big

TRF Radio Banner and try to have it up so we can all find

each other. If someone has an FM banner let me know and we

will use that instead....

See you Saturday!!!!!!!

Curt/WalleyeJon, a question or three:

Is there a radio freq most will be using?

Is the plan still to have two fish frys? The ladies will be driving over from Baudette in the evening and wondering what time to tell them.

Any tips for west end rookies? Like where is the access, where to start, what they bitin on, any hazards getting out, etc.
