I am pleased to announce that we will be having a Fall FM Get-Together in the South Central forum. Thank you to all for showing interest in this great event.

The Fall FM Get-Together will be on Saturday, October 8 from 8:00 am - 4:00 pm on Madison Lake. Registration will begin at 7:00 am at the "in town" landing on the north end of the lake.

The Get-Together will include a fishing contest and then a social gathering following a solid day on the water.

Registration:

- There will be a sign-up sheet available! Pretty simple.

Fishing Contest Rules and Regulations:

- 2 people per boat

- Crappie, Bluegill, Northern, and Walleye

- Total length of any combination of the above species within the legal limit for each species wins!

- Take off will be at 8:00 am and the weigh in will be at 4:00 pm.

- A South Central Forum Fall Get-Together Championship trophy will go to the winning team, along with a 6' spinning rod and $20 Gander Bucks.

Social Gathering:

- Bring what you want to grill and whatever you'd like to drink.

- We'll need a couple of grills, so please volunteer for this! laugh.gif

There will not be any door prizes at this Get-Together. We will be having a large Get-Together in the spring which will include door prizes, etc from several corporate sponsors. Stay tuned for further details! shocked.gif

Hopefully the weather cooperates and I hope to see a lot of you there. It should be a great time! grin.gif

Is this event open to anyone, or has the group already been established? I am thinking of coming with a good friend, but want to make sure room is available. Have not participated in this type of event before, and my buddy needs a good excuse to get his new boat out. Plus, it sounds like a ton of fun! Have never fished Madision, but did spend some time in Mankato area during the early 80's. Also, would need lodging or camping area for Friday/Saturday nights...any input there would be appreciated.

thanks

Casey

casterblaster,

There's plenty of room. You and you're friend are more than welcome.

Bray Park, right on Madison Lake, has a nice camping area or there is plenty of lodging available in Mankato.

efgh yes thats true, but there are only so many days between then the beans come out and the frost sets in for good, we are due for a november 7 freeze up and I like to treat every year like it going to be that. I worked through a Oct.31, 1991 blizzare shocked.gif and had half my work to do yet. Thats whats so great about Thanksgiving day and the thought that I can go ice-fishing everyday if I want to. blush.gifgrin.gifcool.gif

T.O.-I ordered the plaque last week and he told me in a week to 10 days it would be done.Ill give you a call when I have it and we can hook up then.You wont have to blind fold everyone maybe as I could just keep it and say I beat Matt and yourself since I cant make it,probably the only way Ill ever win.Hope you guys have a GREAT day.

I think blindfolds still may be the best bet! grin.gif

      I have a Weboost cellular amplifier at Wakemup Bay. It increases the signal from 1 bar or less to 3-4 bars BUT there is more to the story than bars. For data (like streaming video) I get faster data speeds WITHOUT using my booster. The reason as I understand it is that cellular data transmits and receives on multiple channels simultaneously (its called Multi-In-Multi-Out or MIMO.) Most boosters only amplify a single channel at a time. While the phone shows a good signal from the booster it can actually reduce the data speeds that are available with MIMO transmissions. A booster can improve your voice communications while diminishing your data speeds. You might want to look at the Mobile Internet Resource Center on YouTube for a better explanation.

      57 in Black Bay and 44 in Niles Bay today.  The lake is changing by the day and the fishing reflects it.

      So sorry, wish I could boat over to help. I think we will wait an extra week to head north.  Prayers for a good resolution.  
    • Muskies
      Good morning Mtnman. Yes, the whole rainy lake watershed is under a flood warning. Water is as high as it was back in 2014. Forecast is that is should peak around May 20. All the ice went out last week with all the wind and rain we had. My dock didn’t make it though. Ice blew in and lift the whole thing, crib and all. Mother Nature…adds another project once the water is warm enough to work in. This week looks a little drier…I hope! Safe travels when you do head North.

      The water was over 22 at the very south end of Mud and the overflow pond. I took that route to get to the cabin, I just moved the signs and drove through, saw a couple carp sunbathing on the warm road. 😂
