Walked past the ice rods in the garage yesterday and it definitely got me thinking about this event! Two months away!

If you are unfamiliar with our company, we publish regional fishing and outdoor maps/information for the Midwest and East Coast. We’re well established and currently doing business at most your mom and pop shops as well as almost all the major outdoor outlets and big box stores.
       
      We’re in the process of expanding into new markets and are in need of some sales support. This is a great opportunity for someone with no prior sales experience that wants to get their foot in the door and work for a growing company in the Outdoor field. Must be a self starter with excellent communication and interpersonal skills – AND must enjoy talking hunting and fishing of course….

      A group of us are planning on getting together on Lake Osakis for the day on 8/18/18 for a day of fishing and a midday picnic at the Battle Point Park.  We would enjoy connecting with some fellow anglers from the site to connect and have some fun.  Osakis is a great lake for big gills, slab crappies, nice walleye, pike, smallmouth and largemouth bass.  The best walleye bite has been during low light periods.  Sunfish and crappie bite all day.  We plan on taking a break around noon at the Battle Point Park for lunch.  Right now tentatively looking to connect around 8-9 at the access.  Otherwise look for a red and white Warrior and connect with me, "Borch" on the water I'd you'd like.   I might even have a fishing report really fresh fishing report for you.

      I am thinking it would Great to get to meet some of you members!! What do you all think about meeting as North Blue Lake access or even Green Lake Access. I would like to have it some where we can fish, but mother nature is not working with us. We need a place that can handle a number of us. I am open for other options and I am thinking Saturday January 2, 2016!! Please post if you think we should plan it later or somewhere else. Any other ideas are welcome.  I know I have met a few of you on the lakes, so lets extend our hand to meet some others.

      The problem with FaceBook is that you have to post your name and show pictures of yourself for all to see.  That's why some folks like it on these forums because the shady and criminals can stay incognito. 😆 🤣

      Hoodoo Lake- My dad said "it has big Northerns in it" This may not be very current as he said that like 40 years ago.    Hopefully I will make it back up for a few weekends. We need snow and lots of it.   Good Luck

      How was the ice thickness? Are people driving?

      Sorry to see you go IceHawk. If it's not enjoyable anymore it's time. I've been a member since 2002 but my contributions dropped off a lot when HSO was added. I don't really know why. I recently retired and have started to contribute more. I plan to fish way, way more than I have been so I should have more info to share. I'll update my profile in the next week to let you guys know more about me.
    • rundrave
      Your welcome to join me anytime. I still hunt and fish with a lot of the same guys that no longer frequent FM or HSO.    I have reduced a lot of my content also because it’s not worth the hassle to type up detailed reports or stories any more so I know exactly how you feel.   I have a good network via PM’s and reports that my circle doesn’t share on the forums etc. I’m not in Facebook either but my PM’s are always open lol   sure do miss the glory days on these forums.

      Otter was one of the first shelter to get the insulated material right to reduce condensation and frost build up. Eskimo is right behind there now with their newer Stormsheild Fabric on their Outbreak XD series.

Wanderer maybe with some luck we can someday share a blind together. I can see through your stuff you have the same passion for waterfowl as me. 👍 RundRave really like to join you sometime in SD to do a little pheasant hunting your intel from out there and pics have always kept smile on my face 😀  Smurfy you were always there to make me smile on a poopty day !  Wish I could of met more of you guys over the years but  unfortunately it didn't happen but I'm on the ice at least 4-5  days a week so you never no! Most of the ST Cloud crew I fish with quite often so I'll see you guys soon.  A few questions have been related to me going on Facebook with my stuff joining some groups that's a strong no! I'm not on Facebook tried it once not for me. Some of you may see me posting on some other sites  and a few other places I'm working on 😉
