I'll be there. I'm working on Dan Thiem as well and from the sounds of it he and Alex might be making the trip as well.

Papa Grump how big is that cat in your avatar?

I'd put money on you if you would catch one of those during the event!! But getting him in would require you to be fishing in a spearhole.

Flowage should we hit up CoolCats? I think we could bring some of our river techniques to the event and have a good time! 17lber through the ice cough cough.

I don't suppose anybody would be willing to give me a ride out to the spot, as I am not familiar with the lake. I would be willing to meet you at the access or in Richmound.

As we get closer let people know when you'll be there. Hitching a ride shouldn't be an issue.

There's also a map posted in the thread where the link in my original post goes to.

See you there.

Wouldn't want to miss it! I am looking forward to this event. Hopefully I'll make a few new fishing buddy's. Maybe I'll have a panfish bite going nearby that some of us can take advantage of in the afternoon. smile.gif See you all there!

Brian, I guess I have been invited in on your group also by Jim from my bowling league.

What are you guys all bringing? Just portables or should I bring the wheeler too? I have a wheelhouse but that might be a little overkill.

Dave- just the portable is fine since we will be driving out to the spot and staying for most of the day. I'm bowling this Wednesday and will clue you and Jim in on the plans.

I will be leaving from Arlington alone, so if anyone will need a ride just holler. You can call me if you like. I believe I will be leaving my house around 5am, but if you would not be able to make that we might be able to change those plans a bit.

I would really like to come to this event since I love to go cat fishin in the open water but have never done it through the ice before...Is it a alright idea to bring my 13 and 11 yr old boys with or is it more of an adult thing? and also what do I bring for gear as in lures and bait?

I plan to be there in a few weeks. Working on the wife to have her come out to a Get together. IF the weather is good, I think she'll come...I've got my fingers crossed that she makes it out at least once this year smile.gif

Looking forward to meeting a lot of you for the first time!

mpsteckel- Defianately bring the boys along. Family,friends and kids are what this event is all about. Kids are the future of our sport and the more we get involved the better in the long run.

As far as gear I use my normal walleye setups. Glow red spoons always seem good!

Just watched the 5:00pm news on wcco.com. Sounds like we may get 8-14" of snow. However there is a possible chance a small band could come over us with over 15" of new white stuff. Lucky us mad.gif

Looking forward to the event but the weather , I am hoping, won't put a damper on our day.

Sounds like the snow will all be on the ground before the event. The problem will be getting out to the spot. We might try to snowmobile all the way from home out to the lake if I am in town, or trailer them to the lake. Com'n guys we are Minnesotans, a couple weak winters seem to have made some of us soft!!:)

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?
    • Slopfishin
      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.  
    • TomWehler
      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!   
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.
    • brrrr
      I camped at a couple sites a few years ago.  no docks, but most of the sites had a half way decent place to put the boat in.  one had a decent log to tie to.  another I threw a couple anchors out back and was able to tie off to a couple trees to keep the boat close yet off the rocks.
