Take A Kid Fishing Tournament

26 posts in this topic

Grab that little fishing partner and head to Northwoods Children Services Contest for Kids.

June 9th 9AM-2PM

This is a great time and good cause. Jr and I will be there again this year.

We will also be donating to Northwoods Children Services in FM's name, rods and reels left over from out Sportsman's Sway Meet. Gary(ripstick), Randy(Loonasea,) and myself spent an afternoon refurbishing these combos along with spooling them up with line donated from Fisherman's Corner.

ST/Ripstick,

Wish that I could make this one with Junior, but we're having his birthday party the same day. Oh well, he does get the chance to get out on a regular basis, but I think he'd of really enjoyed it with a bunch of other kids.

Hopefully we can make it next year!

PS: Going to try and get him his first laker this weekend if the weather cooperates. He checked off coho on his list earlier this month smile.gif

Randy, they may be looking for someone to drive the pontoon boat. I've left a message as to policy of taking NCS kids out with your own boat. I think that each boat would need NCS staff aboard. I'll get a definite on that.

This is intended for all kids so if you have a son, daughter, grandkids, nephews, or even the neighbor kid, bring them out.

Frank,

I worked at Northwoods for 2 years. I believe the answer you will get is that a counselor should be present in the boat. Regardless of the official answer, I think you are going to want one in close proximity. Great kids, but they often need some special attention...

G&G, your are right. A staff is required in each boat but if we get a group of boats that stay relatively close to each other then only one staff per group will be needed, thats good news. So, there'll be around 50 kids from Northwoods that will be fishing from shore.

What'da say fellas, could we make that 50 kids fishing from a boat?

Email me if your interested in taking a couple kids fishing.

Hey frank do you think it will be better to have a couple of fmers to a boat so that one could take acouple of kids out 1on1.

Well, I am out 480 bucks (after tax) but I got me a new Eagle 502ci. Gave it a whirl tonight for about two hours out of the Wi entry. Seems to work well, color is awsome. Now I need a navionics card and I will be armed and dangerous.

Looking forward to getting my son on some fish next weekend!

Sorry everybody but my 3 yr old daughter just reeled her 1st fish in by herself on Monday so I think she is primed for this tournament. Am I a nerd if I am looking forward to getting her Dora the Explorer pole ready for Saturday? I have a boat but Im not bringing it cause I cant wait to spend some time fishing from shore. We might take some time though to throw rocks in the water(her...not me):-)

Great to see that some FMers will be there with kids.

The Sunnies are still in shallow and theres lots of them. Perfect for the kids and it couldn't get simpler! Bobber plain hook and a small leech or worm. Find weeds, reeds or cattails along the shoreline and the pannies will be there.

PS: The Dora rod might burn out so bring a backup. laugh.gif

Due to the storms at my house last night and the fact that the winds resulted in my breezeway and garage being "skinned alive". I regretfully will be spending my weekend trying to get something over the roof to protect it from further damage until the Ins Adjuster gets here. Good luck everyone.

      1-2" in most lakes under 100 acres with moderate depth in the north metro. Smaller lakes likely have more.    Fingers crossed the snow misses us

      Went out with my poker this morning and checked ice at Johanna. The entire lake is finally locked up and there is about an inch of ice at the end of the dock. Hopefully the snow misses us this morning and we start to build some quality ice.

      I checked numerous Aitken area lakes yesterday, 9th. The only lake where I saw any open water remaining was Cedar south of Aitken.  Ripple, Dam, Clear, Hanging Kettle, Sissabagama, Anne, Rabbit, all locked up. 2" in most places, but after last night I'm sure it added more. I would guess in the next couple days there will be walk-out traffic. There were 6 porty's on  Shakopee yesterday, and although I did not check the ice, I'd assume there is decent ice there. There were houses out there already Wed.   Be safe, use caution and common sense, and do lots of checking.

      Ice Report: Pearl Lake 4 1/2 inches on shore line. 5 inches out a couple hundred feet. 1 guy out fishing way out there.  Grand Lake 2 inches about 10 ft out from public access. 
    • Dragon Fish ll
      Well from what I saw yesterday I could wet a line thru the ice today I think knot. im going to give it a week for myself personaly. but on my way to work at 3pm yesterday I looked over at the lake I mentioned was iced over since Wed. and seen two groups of 2 out in the middle of the lake ice shelters and all and 2 of them weren't that far from the aerator out there.  I just hope everyone had a good and safe day out there and no one found anything out the hard way. At best that lake caped off Tuesday night. But I predict by next weekend there will be many places to ice fish and some evan before.  Three hard strikes with the Spud Bar followed by the foot
