Fish Lake Gathering Sunday Dec. 18th


Recommended Posts

Hey guys we are going to do our anual Fish Lake gathering on Sunday Dec. 18th! Im thinking 10 or 11AM should do fine. It was a good time last year. Lets pray for warmer temps and less wind this year though.

People can post if they are bringing grillables, food or beverages.

We had a barrel last year but I think its best everyone brings their own this year. Dont want FM having anything to do with providing beverages should anything happen. Plus it froze last year. crazy.gif

I hope we get at least as good a turnout as last year and I hope to see some new faces.

You can definately count me in, I would venture to guess that the ice would be small vehicle worthy by that time, but then again time will tell. As far as the barrel goes, I see your point on the liability issue but if I end up having one in my house for myself thats not an issue is it? grin.gif

I have a ton of elk burger meat to burn up from last year and I may have boar meat back by that time as well.

I'll be taking care of myself the day before this year as to not get sick again. If you need someone up there early to get set up let me know.

Cheffrey you can have whatever you want in your house. As long as its legal ofcourse. wink.gif

Ya dont go getting sick. I will probably get there a bit early. There may be a informal givaway so ya never know what you may get. shocked.gif

Everyone bring a wheeler or sled if you can because we will be getting away from the crowd again this year. It will more than likely be too far to walk. Heck the narrows can be a haul at times.

Everyone coming let us know here and if your bringing anyone. I will have to let Tim at Highbanks know how many we will have so he has enough bait. Please buy your bait from Tim! He plows the roads and delivers pizza, beer etc. to your house. Plus he always has some nice little prizes for me to give away. So lets support him.

See ya all there!

I'm in and will have a few choice areas to fish. Chances are we'll be able to drive out but procuring a sled just in case of insufficient ice or deep snow would be wise. After all we should be leaving the pack and leading the pack into fertile waters.

Count me in. If the majority of us brought FRS that would be nice. Especially if one of the Friendly FM folks is willing to make a trip to HiBanks with a Wheeler to help out a few fellers (if ice don't let vehicles on the ice yet)...

Sounds like an exciting time again, and look forward to it! Had to sell the wheeler last year to buy a boat for this year. Man, where do the dilemas quit? Wheeler or boat...something tells me i got more use out of my boat...

4431 you can put in at Highbanks and get bait there. Read the above posts for time. Where we are fishing is never in stone and we wont probably know until a few days before. Best thing is to call on 2 way radio when you get there. You will probably see us and maybe ST can post his flag for easy sightings. Most likely we will be out to the left of the narrows or over by Driftwood.

I'm not sure if I'll make it yet. There is a good chance I'm going to be on LOW that weekend. With the sub zero temps they're making ice like crazy up there and it looks like driving trucks out is a definite possibility. If I'm not there, however, you'll definitely find me on Fish Lake.

Kid, like Northlander said. we'll stay flexible as to where we'll be fishing till we get closer to that date. I have one suggestion with a few places in mind that'll be sheltered from wind and contain fish.

Just remember, YOU SET THE HOOK grin.gif

I don't know if this get together will work quite right without a keg, but I'll probably show up anyway wink.gif. I'm guessing quick will be there as well and we should probably bring someone else with to drive us home smirk.gif

In all seriousness, it sounds like a great time and i'll also have my sled out there to help shuttle people wherever they need to go if we're not driving by then.

And Porter I thought you would have known by now that "only Babe Winkelman and i diots set the hook." grin.gif

Looks like we're going to have a good turnout and I'm looking forward to seeing new and old faces. STF hope you can make it down again. You know you have a place to stay and if you bring your sled we can takeoff from my place.

Frank you better drive over. The way you run that snowmobile all you will have left when you get to the lake is a tow bar and a few remnants of what used to be a Otter. shocked.gif

Ya this should be a good time. Come on you new guys join on in.

Steve,St STF,

You guys can count me in this getogether.Can't wait till then. If you want me to bring something please let me know.

With the turnout so far, how can one deny a nice shiny metal container out on the ice holding favorite beverage?

Tempting...something tells me the lake just might get a surprise. Liability totaly on Papa Woodie Inc.! With some more convincing, and a ride to the "spot" from the "landing"....we might have a grand ol time on our hands!

So i yell "WHOS WITH ME?" (Little help on splitting up cost is great, but a nice fish secret is also good bribery!)...With some of the folks on here, they'll be drinking real cheap all day!

Final decision to me made closer to event date!

Woodie, don't worry I can usually get one donated from the beverage companies I work with.

      So, that was you in the camo lund? I'm bummed, I have to head back to the cities tomorrow for a few days, then back up for at least a few weeks. Got the dock in and fired up to get out chasing some crappies till opener!

      On the south end...   Lots of ice on the main basin, but it is definitely deteriorating.  Some anglers have been fishing the open water at the mouth of the Rainy River in front of the Lighthouse Gap.  The rest of the basin is still iced over. Pike enthusiasts caught some big pike earlier last week tip up fishing in pre-spawn areas adjacent to traditional spawning areas.  8 - 14' of water using tip ups with live suckers or dead bait such as smelt and herring has been the ticket.  Ice fishing for all practical purposes is done for the year. The focus for the basin moving forward will be pike transitioning into back bays to spawn,  This is open water fishing and an opportunity available as the pike season is open year round on Lake of the Woods. The limit is 3 pike per day with one being able to be more than 40 inches. All fish 30 - 40 inches must be released. With both the ice fishing and spring fishing on the Rainy River being so good, many are looking forward to the MN Fishing Opener on Saturday, May 11th.  It should be epic. On the Rainy River...  An absolutely incredible week of walleye and sturgeon fishing on the Rain Rainy River.     Walleye anglers, as a rule, caught good numbers of fish and lots of big fish.  This spring was one for the books.   To follow that up, the sturgeon season is currently underway and although every day can be different, many boats have caught 30 - 40 sturgeon in a day!  We have heard of fish measuring into the low 70 inch range.  Lots in the 60 - 70 inch range as well.   The sturgeon season continues through May 15th and resumes again July 1st.   Oct 1 - April 23, Catch and Release April 24 - May 7, Harvest Season May 8 - May 15, Catch and Release May 16 - June 30, Sturgeon Fishing Closed July 1 - Sep 30, Harvest Season If you fish during the sturgeon harvest season and you want to keep a sturgeon, you must purchase a sturgeon tag for $5 prior to fishing.    One sturgeon per calendar year (45 - 50" inclusive, or over 75"). Most sturgeon anglers are either a glob of crawlers or a combo of crawlers and frozen emerald shiners on a sturgeon rig, which is an 18" leader with a 4/0 circle hook combined with a no roll sinker.  Local bait shops have all of the gear and bait. Up at the NW Angle...  Open water is continuing to expand in areas with current.  The sight of open water simply is wetting the pallet of those eager for the MN Fishing Opener on May 11th.   A few locals were on the ice this week, targeting pike.  Some big slimers were iced along with some muskies as well.  If you like fishing for predators, LOW is healthy!

      Early bird gets the worm some say...   I have it on good authority that this very special angler caught no walleyes or muskies and that any panfish caught were released unharmed.        
    • smurfy
      got mine done........for the cabin.....ready for summer festivities!!!!!!   there was still frost in the ground...........but good gawd are the lakes low!!!!!
    • CigarGuy
      Just 1, 50" muskie🫣
    • SkunkedAgain
      How many walleye were on the stringer on their way out??? 
    • CigarGuy
      Saw the first boat of the year yesterday, heading towards Black Bay 
    • SkunkedAgain
      All of the webcams appear to be ice-free except for shore ice. It looks like you could navigate most of the way on Vermilion at this point. Happy boating everyone.

      I'm the same on honey do lists. I seem to feel better doing my list than my wife's list, even though they my be similar. 
    • Mike89
      these were that way..   I thought the deep fried rocky mountain oysters were better...   😁
