This sounds like a good deal, Wiskers. You might want to post this info in the D.L. forum and the main ice fishing forum as well. Get the word out. I'm not sure I'll have this weekend open or not, but if I do I'd like to come up and meet you and some of the rest of the crew. Is Ed coming up for it? I'll have to ask him about that next time I talk to him.
One question, how much is it to enter? Might want to post that so people know. Sounds like a really fun event- good work!

Whiskers,

Have fun Wiskers! I wish I could come, but my wife's got me signed up to play in a volleyball tourney for the weekend. It'll be fun, but not as much fun as fishin the Red Lake. Be sure and give us a report after the festivities are over.

Well we had a pretty good turn out for our first every Ice Buster Daze.....

We sold 67 tickets, Caught 3 fish.. 2 walleyes and one Sauger.

47 entries for the Radar runs.

The dance went over very well.

We had enough prizes for every fisherperson to get a prize of some sort and even onlookers got prizes.

Over all we think it was a success and have more ideas for next year.

I even seen two FMers here. Thanks for your support fellas. That is what this is all about.

Bruce,"Today's Tackle", did a great job and helped out a lot. We are excited about starting for next year alerady. Hope more of you can make it up here.

It was cold and fun. It was great to have pretty much everyone win something. Thanks to everyone who was involved in the event. Hopefully next year I can catch a fish.

Hey thanks fellas... Our goal was to make it as fun as it could be even if the fish were playing hard to get.

Three fish is not a whole lot but it was more fish than the Frosty Bobber this year.. At least that is a bonus. LOL...

Wroking on next year as of now..

      How about a digital photo frame in the shack.

      I remember the picture you are talking about, but I think it was last year some time and I just don't think I could wad through all of Duff's politic fall out to find it!  😵   One of my buddies put up those adhesive backed thin cork-board squires on two of his cabin walls. Pretty fun idea of his family growing up at the cabin.  With fishing, hunting pictures mixed in.

      Looks like their still running the small motel. Hope they rebuild it was a pretty nice place when they remodeled a few years ago.

      Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup were pretty much ice free this past weekend.  Spring Bay has ice as it's really protected.  Some ice in Richie but the west wind on Monday pushed it all to the east end.

      Sounds like cost/benefit analysis is underway...

      I tried finding the pic @Duffman posted of the board he put together for his basement/bar I think it was but no dice.  Too much for me sift through.  It was pretty cool though and maybe in line with the OP’s idea.   @leech~~, got some time and mad search skills to dig that one up?
    • SkunkedAgain
      How is the ice build-up coming along? I can't wait until Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup freeze so that I can get to my place across the ice. I'm hoping for another low-slush year.

      Jim Zupancich, who works out of the flagship store in Ely, said the Zup’s in Cook has been in business for more than 20 years. He added: “We do OK there. It’s a living. We’ll get back on our feet.”   Jim didn't give much of an endorsement but I understand the economics. One of the early articles had the store manager saying that they would rebuild. A later article quoted one of the Zupancich's saying that they would assess the possibility of rebuilding. I think that we all hope that they will rebuild, and hopefully they had good insurance to make it an easy choice.

      As of mid July nothing was going on there. I drove in there, think I parked in the bar!

      Picked up a new supply of pretreated cleaning patches and some Blackhorn loading tubes tonight at Shooting Sports.   I’m just dabbling with getting things ready but the more I do, the more motivated I get to go.  Too bad you’re so wrapped up in hockey this time of year that you can’t really get into it now!  Good to spend time with the kids but ignoring the call is tough.
