An eight year old boy was airlifted to the hospital in critical condition after a snowmobile hit him and his father on Chisago Lake last night.   Some of the relatives have come online to give more info to the group, along with some photos.  Apparently he was upgraded to stable condition today.  Details on how to support he family not available yet.  

I have no relation to the family nor do I know them personally, but wanted folks here to be aware of what happened in case they want to help in some way.

The family has a donation site set up now.  Looks like the boy is in pretty rough shape even though in "stable" condition.   I've not seen any word on how his father is doing, he was taken to the hospital too.

Friends of the family are organizing an ice fishing get-together on Chisago lake with all proceeds going to the family.   I'll quote some of the info for anyone who doesn't use Facebook. 

https://www.facebook.com/events/176491763115920/

"Saturday, February 10 at 12 PM - 4 PM"

"We are having a memorial Fishing event in memory of Alan Jr. Geisenkoetter. We will be hosting a silent auction along with a raffle. There will be food to purchase. We are asking for a 5 dollar donation, and all proceeds will go to the Ellie and Allan Geisenkoetter. This will be a fishing event NOT a fishing tournament in memory of Alan JR. we ask this to be a family oriented Dry environment. I will be post a sign up for volunteers below. The event will take place at the boat launch"

I wish I could have heard that earlier. Want to come and support this family. What a tragedy. No words about how stupid some people are and dangerous. My prayers for that little angel. RIP

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.

      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck

      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.  
    • ozzie
      so just curious how is the water situation in the area?  the document didn't open and I don't get up in the area as often as I would like but I have heard of quite a few storms roll through the area.  I know the sentiment earlier this year was it was gonna take a lot to get things going in the right direction, so has that started to happen or still way below normal?  Thanks
