LOW get together June 19th update.

Recommended Posts

curt quesnell

I stopped by the boat landing at Warroad<BR>last week to check it out. I have never<BR>paid much attention to the "lay of the land"<BR>but it is VERY nice.<P>The second annual open water FM LOW Get Together is June 19th. This year we will be<BR>on the west side of the lake out of Warroad.<BR>The day will involve fishing and eating.<BR>The fishing will be close in (if you want<BR>it that way) and should be very good. The<BR>eating part will be the HUGE FISH FRY at the<BR>campground after a fun day on the water.<BR>Also, you will get a chance to meet several<BR>of the FMers you read posts from every day<BR>here on the web.<P>There are a couple of covered picnic <BR>areas, with grills and pop machines, the<BR>boat landing is right there and so is the<BR>campground. There is a nice fish cleaning<BR>house, plenty of parking for trucks and<BR>boats. This can really work out nicely.<P>Take a minute in the next few days and <BR>decide if you can join the group on Saturday<BR>June 19th (it's only 4 weeks away). In a week<BR>or so we will start asking for head counts<BR>again. It wont cost anything to attend but<BR>we will be needing some things and may<BR>assign some duties. <P>If you dont have a boat we will hook you up. <P>If you have room in your boat you may spend the day with a brand new friend.<P>Earlier Rick Paquin (our fearless leader)<BR>said the date looked good for getting some<BR>of the sites bigwigs at this event. They<BR>have been known to bring prizes.<P>Check your schedules boys and girls and<BR>pencil this in if you can.<P>------------------<BR>Curt Quesnell<BR>NorthCountry Outdoors Radio

Curt, I got to speak with the nice lady at the Warroad coc this morning. We can get the larger shelter right accross from the fish cleaning shacks. I had her temporarily pencil it in, and I told her I'd get back to her Wednesday. I have some questions for you so could you email me sometime soon? This pavillion has power for crockpots and whatever else. Alcohol is okay if we let them know. No kegs allowed though. There is a fire ring with this one as well. They have a PA/sound system avaliable for us as well iffin you're gonna do the MC'n and want it!!!<P>It would also be nice to get a head count so we have an idea of # of folks that plan on attending....So iffin you are planning on joining in on the fun post here for all to see!<P>Fisky<p>[This message has been edited by fiskyknut (edited 05-24-2004).]

Fisky,<P>Thanks for your legwork so far. This<BR>place will work out real well.<P>Yes we will be there for sure. I have<BR>no idea at this point how many people<BR>we will have.<P>I have a yahoo email addy for you and I<BR>dont think it is the right one. So instead<BR>of me sending off to cyber space.....<P>[email protected] is my email, send any<BR>questions you have to me and I will try<BR>to answer them.<P>We will need a rough head count soon. So<BR>check your schedules and plan the day with<BR>us Saturday June 19th<P>------------------<BR>Curt Quesnell<BR>NorthCountry Outdoors Radio<p>[This message has been edited by curt quesnell (edited 05-25-2004).]

Two in my party, so I'll have room for two more in my boat. I take it this is a rain or shine event--barring severe t-storms? If people are travelling a long distance, and would like to get in a round of golf on Sunday, I'ld be up for that too. Warroad has a nice course. <P>------------------<BR>Fish on gotta go--JON

      We've been big fans of the 3" minnows, and 5" leeches, along with crawlers, great color combinations, with floating versions ta boot.👍👍     Found the pinched half crawlers to work great for adding spin to "slow death" presentation...

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      Ive been out a few times as well..have tried from the harbor all the way up to boyscout...have been getting a few everytime out but has been slow for me....been trolling crawlers with big colorado blades..have caught fish on flats by barkers,between the bridges,and out from clyde area....got 6 cats accidentally while trolling boards by the community hole south west side of spirit lake...water clarity still sucks in the harbor..a bit better the farther up river u go...has it been kinda slow for everyone?????ive been doing better on fish lake.lol

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂
    • LBerquist
      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.
