FM Metro GTG II...

Recommended Posts

hanson

Since the first one went over so well... I would like to get another one going. Believe me, if you weren't there you missed out!...

I'm thinking either Jan 19 (Sat) or Jan 20 (Sun), lake yet to be determined but more than likely west Metro. I'm seriously thinking Medicine Lake as I know that lake the best of the west metro lakes, we can walk to the decent spots, and we will have lots of action for bluegills, crappies, perch, occasional bass, and should see some pike as well.

Anyone interested??

Ah Medicine lake. That is always a fun body of water to hit for ice fishing. I am always drawn to the claw area for crappie, pike, eyes, and perch. That being said it is also great to learn other areas of the lake. I will try to make it to the Medicine GTG.

I will try my hardest (depending of the wife letting me have two days fishing) if you have it Sunday. Saturday is the kids fishing GTG up on N. Center and I don't wanna miss taking my daughter out for her first GTG.

Alrighty... due to somewhat popular opinion, the FM Metro GTG II will happen on Medicine Lake, Sunday January 20, 2008.

We'll bump the meeting time back a little bit to... let's say... 8am. If anyone wants to do Breakfast, we can hit a Perkins again, we just won't call ahead this time! \:o Breakfast will be at 6:30am.

Meeting place will more than likely be French Park on the north side of Medicine Lake. There is a boat launch/lake access in French and you don't need a park permit or to pay to use the park during the winter.

There are a few popular areas within walking distance of French or I suppose we could all drive out as well.

Remember that Harty's Bait & Tackle is on the SE side of the lake if anyone needs bait.

The more the merrier man!

I don't mind having get-togethers, showing people spots, teaching techniques, etc on "most" Metro area lakes as the fish are really abundant, eager, and for the most part... small. Really depends on the lake but most metro panfish lakes can pump out numbers and numbers of the same size "metro" panfish year after year after year.

If anyone is interested in learning a little more about metro panfishing, definitely show up. I've found if you can learn the finesse game in the metro, you can have a very fun day on the ice! We're definitely here to share, teach, and have fun. Don't be bashful. \:\)

Even if we don't catch fish, Perkins breakfast is sure to be memorable again. Hmmm... guess I have to figure out a Perkins to meet at now.

There is a Perkins near HWY 55 & Winnetka Ave (which is SE of the lake). Not sure if there is one off of Rockford Rd on the north side however... gonna have to do a little research.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.   
    • Wanderer
      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!   
    • Bryan P
      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some! 
    • eyeguy 54
      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁
    • ANYFISH2
      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.
    • eyeguy 54
      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL
