FM Fall Launch Sept. 20th - Join Us :)

Recommended Posts

Benny

I have the night launch at Fishers booked for the 20th of September!
I have to go by a first in first on board for the spots available on the launch.
Fisher's said they only take out 20 people on the night launch due to line tangle problems when windy.

So the first people to get thier deposit in to me will be first on board Saturday night.
I have to get with Rick to see if he can swing us a discount, but for now if you want to send me your deposit just send me an Email with your number and address and I will send you mine.

I will keep a running log book to keep everything in order and will post the user names of those already paid up.

Now the lodging is up to you, as of this morning the whole resort is open for lodging.I booked one cabin for Friday and Saturday nights , if there is room for any one I will post it later.
Thier web site is www.fishersresort.com and is listed in the resort finder of this forum board.All thier accomodations are listed and prices also.

Please hurry to get your cabin or camp site reserved so we can take up the whole place.

If there are a lot of people who want to go on a launch and don't mind the day or evening run, there is still open launches.
They may be walk on only but not sure?

Well lets get the list going, send email to address below.I check it regularly and will respond as soon as I get home from work each night.

Thanks, Benny

I called Fisher's. Greg wasn't in and I left my number for him to call back.

I'll ask about the discount when he gets back to me. I'm not sure where he's at right now.

Benny, if you talk to Fisher's you can let them know it's an FM gathering and ask about a discount too.

Rick, I assume he knows it is for us.When I booked it he called me back to make sure I knew there were only 20 seats on the evening launch.He told me at that time he saw the thread on the web site and he thought we might be planning on way more than the amount of people he can take out.

I assured him I was planning on a first come first on board way to fill the seats.
I didn't ask for a discount at that time because I didn't want to over step any boundries as this is my first time taking on the booking of a launch party.
I have always been the ride along before.


Come on people, there are 10 seats taken so far.The cabins are open yet as of yesterday, so be sure to get an early reservation so we can book up the whole resort.
I know there would be too many people to all get on the launch if we book the whole place, but I am sure there will be fun for every one and there should be a few boat owners that could take out an extra person or two.
There should also be a day time launch for those that would like to go out but don't have a boat and can't get in on time for the evening launch.

Fishers number is 1-866-684-2221 cabin prices are listed at their web site also.

Thanks, Benny

p.s Got three more spoken for tonight.Only 10 seats left.

Yes, we had people bring thier own boats last year and Fishers has a nice access for your boat. Just be sure to book your cabins now before the hunters do...
I think the cabin rates are less in Sept. I got my cabin for less than what the website says..

Good point on the hunters, Derek.I forgot about them and you know they will be booking it up soon.
My duck hunting partner is headed out to the Dakotas for the 4th of july, to visit relatives and to book our hotel rooms for the opener and the second weekend we go out.

Maybe I missed it here, but did you post the current cost for the launch before any discounts?

Rick swung us a deal for the day or evening launchs, and personal boat launchs.


The cost for the night charteded launch is $27.50 each person.It works out like this, $500 for the launch and a $50.00 tip for the captain.If you want to give more of a tip please do, if you send the extra to me be sure to let me know that it's for the launch tip.

Sorry but I was informed that there is no discount for the night launch.So the price is what it is.

There are 10 spots left on the night launch, as Rick posted in the other thread there are open seats to be reserved for a day or evening launch as well.

I'll have to check with Huskminn, but my I guess is we are in. I am sure I will be doing the hunting thing again during the day and then get out on the launch at night. It's a ways off, but I am looking forward to it!

Hi,
the discount is for the morning and afternoon launch trips on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. Same deal with lauching your boat.

The discount is 10% off. Just let them know you want the FishingMN.com discount when reserving your spot or launching your boat.

You can see all cabin and launch pricing at:
FishersResort.com

Harmonica Bear, yes the date is a ways off but over half the night luanch seats are filled already.And the cabins are starting to get booked, I don't know if they are booked with FMers or not.I hope we can fill the whole resort so it would be an all FMer weekend there.
Don't delay to long, at least get a cabin or a camp site.

Only 8 seats left, I don't know if the resort is filling up yet though.
Paul said the piggy roast is still going, sounds like we are in for a great time.

I have rented cabin six , it sleeps 3 to 5 people if any one needs a bed to crash on there are 4 more open.
Cost is $75 for double occupancy + $5.00 bucks a person over that,Per night.

I also have an open seat in the big Ford for the trip up, I am bringing my boat along as well as the shot gun for the grouse action.

Thought I'd give this a little bump, as I would like to see it turn out to be a successful event.

Unfortunately, I can't commit to taking part. There are just too many pending issues to allow me to plan that far in advance. You hear that, HB?

However, if the weekend ends up open, you can bet I'll stop by to check on Derek's progress with the mouth harp and try to get an accurate count on the number of walleyes landed.

rmh2o,as far as I know at this time the piggy roast is still on for Saturday evening before the launch.About 5 PM I would say.Paul is taking care of the piggy though.

Thanks huskminn, I only have one person paid up for two spots on the launch.We need to get some more people going at this point, I understand that some people won't commit till the last few weeks or so.I have a friends softball team waiting to go if I can't fill the launch with FM people.FMer's get first crack right up till the last week.
I have no Idea how full the resort is by now, I assume there are still open cabins yet.

I have some nice hats and dicount cards for a fellow FMer's online store to give away as a door prizes and big fish awards.
Working on getting a discount on some FM Minn Fall Launch hats made up, but these people take forever to get back to me.

That's ok Derek, I think there will be a good turn out.By the way I got some hats and t-shirts coming from my buddy for the free be's.They are from his buisness but are nice hats and didn't cost me any thing to get.
I still haven't heard back from the hat printers to get a price for some hats that show you attended the launch trip.Maybe they are to busy to make more?

      My 115 merc 4 stroke (2006) is acting up.  At about 2/3 throttle, 30 mph, 4000 rpm's the motor seems to cavitate or rev up and the tach pops way up, but we didn't speed up.  I quickly backed off and ran at a lower speed.  I have it trimmed up on plane but not overly so.  It did it once at a lower speed as well.  Most of the time at lower speeds it riund fine. Brought it in and they looked at it and pulled the prop and everything looked fine there etc.  The motors lower plate seems to be located correctly, right at the bottom of the boat.  Going on one last trip, and don't really have much time to bring it in for an extensive diagnosis, might need to baby it and stay close to the landing.  Any ideas?

      Try Darren Troseth at 3 rivers fishing adventures.  Fall is sturgeon  time.   He also specializes in catfish with a shot at a trophy.

      No doubt @papadarv!  They’re really good at it too.  The small family flocks have joined together where I’ve been seeing geese and now number 50+ typically.   We saw some geese and a few ducks today but didn’t shoot any.  We didn’t find anything worth setting up on.  Pretty amazing how slim the duck population is up here.  The biggest flock I’ve seen, including the drive up, numbered 5 birds.  It’s been mostly random singles and pairs.   The flooding up here has been amazing too.  Something like 10 inches in 25 hours.  Roads are flooded and the ditches are raging rivers.  The downstream sides of the bigger culverts look like power plant discharges.   We’re considering other options for tomorrow.
