Important FM get together information request

Recommended Posts

curt quesnell

I have searched and cannot find our earlier post on the

the June get together. I was talking to Scarface last

week and he mentioned the Warroad Point is still pretty

barren following the tornado that pummeled the area last

summer.

Here is the question (questions?) Since this years event

was to be in the beautiful park in Warroad, does anyone

know or will someone local check with Warroad and see what

the timetable is for rebuilding the gazebos and fish

cleaning houses. (that was question number one).

Since we havent apparently done this yet, can we get a first

draft on who may be attending. Two Saturdays to choose

from...June 16th and June 23rd. June 23rd is one of the

days for the new Walleye League but that runs from 8 am to

noon so I dont think that is much of a conflict, you can

do both???

Let me give you a quick run down on the day. We all meet

up at the boat landing and get squared away in the morning.

Fish fish fish fish fish, then we come in and have a fish

fry under the new gazebos and make a bunch of new friends.

If you dont have a boat-no problem, If you have a boat but

no one to fish with-no problem, we will have it all sorted

out by then.

Everyone brings something for the fish fry (also determined

in advance)and everyone brings their own beverages.

We are done and the mess is cleaned up before nightfall.

This is a nice family event, there will be wives and kids

along so dont be afraid to bring yours.

OK, now you type

Hey Curt, almost certain we will be there again--women!! For some reason or other, Monica thought that was a long way off. Likely bring beans, slaw and goose sticks again. This 60 degree stuff really has me thinking open water.

Hello Everyone:: Either date works for me!! I'll be there where ever it's held... It's always a blast to meet other F/M'ers... As soon as the final date is set, I'll get together a group to fish, probably my Son and his Twins.. Let's see what should I bring?? ... smile.gifgrin.gif Kaz

The 16th is Fathers Day weekend (darn). The next weekend

is Walleye League, the weekend after that is the 30th,

getting pretty close to the 4th of July weekend.

Start pitchin in what will or wont work for you..

Fathers Day weekend works for me.

Walleye League Saturday is only a catch because from

8 to noon I can have only one person in my boat with me.

The 30th is fine also.

When I was at the Warroad city council to get a permit to use the park for the walleye league HQ I asked that very question, Mayor Bob said the would know the plans for the Point reconstruction in about 3 weeks. That was on Feb 26 so they should know soon, I’ll check and post the answer.

Boar,

Small boat fishing out of Warroad is not a problem on a

nice day. There could possibly be a brand new playground

for the kids by that time, if the kids get enough of the

boat they can burn off some energy on the swings.

Thanks Scarface I know we must hurry up and wait a bit.

Okay then, with Scarface going head on I guess I won't have to bother calling then.

Thanks Pat. I just wrapped and hid a bunch for the get together. A little different mix this year--snows, blues, specks, canadas and mallards. Yumm.

Looking forward to heading out of Warroad for the first time. Will there be any low water problems?

Take care.

My Yahoo mail is'nt working today but once it is back up I'll get back atcha Steve.

I have'nt even seen the new white ones, definatly pick some up. Wonderbread a few for me eh!!! That new saltwater X-rap diving crank is gonna get some time in the water too, kinda big but those big eyes should have no problem with it! I'm still in ice mode and have'nt done any thinking let alone stocking up on openwater stuff yet.....Errrrr, a, I have been thinking jig, jig, jig on the Rainy though!

Do you make it up for the ice out bumper boat games on the Rainy Steve?

Barring another year with unforeseen circumstances, I will be there. My fishing partner now has the camping spot right next to mine in Warroad. There is a large open area behind our campers with plenty of parking, so the group is more than welcome to have the fish fry there....We even still have shade trees. I will also have people available to watch "smaller kids who get bored", and will have a couple seats in a bigger boat if it happens to be rough; so don't let that hold anyone back. Man am I ever getting Open Water Fever.

Hi Everyone,

As far as I can tell the Mrs and I will definately try and make it back this year. The 23rd or 30th weekend would probably work best for us. Might be able to swindle another taco saled out of the Mrs. Also thinking I might be able to get some hats or shirts from one of the new FM sponsors.

Since date hasnt been an issue yet. Lets toss fathers

day out of the mix leaving June 23rd and 30th.

Scarface, what do you think about the get together on top

of Walleye League the 23rd? Either date works for me.

Curt: 23th works better I would think, so as not to interfere with the Forth of July weekend. A lot of families have the next week off and are doing "The Family thing" from the 30th to the 9th.. I'd even think Fathers Day weekend would be something the Dad's could enjoy with their children.. Kaz

I dont think it is a good idea to have this event on top of

the Walleye league. Many of the regulars here will be busy

all morning with the league and will not have time to be

social.

Let's narrow this down to Fathers Day Saturday(16th) or

Saturday June 30th...

We will pick a date this week if we can....so pipe in here

and help choose

I vote for Fathers Day... Middle of June seems to be the better fishing too. Let's make it a Great Father's Day... smile.gif Kaz

I'll cast my vote for as early as possible in June.

I also don't think an FM gathering should be or would need to be scheduled around this new walleye league thing. I'm not sure how many 'regulars' are even in this new league deal, and the folks that come from a distance certainly are'nt, so why schedule the fm gtg around it???

The 23rd is fine by me.

I talked with Kathy at the Warroad city office. She said nothing has been confirmed yet. A designer was going to present a proposal for rebuilding the Point area structures on the April 5. They may know more after that.

Earlier will be better for fishing, so I vote for Father's Day or sooner. And again, don't worry about the shelters getting re-built, I've got it covered if they aren't ready.

      The ice was very crystallized last night but still 20+ inches.

      Drifter, I hope you are right about having more open water than ice.  Was looking more closely at the average ice out dates maintained by the DNR. The avg dates for the lakes that dot the southern most part of the state are approximately one month ahead of the lakes that dot the northern part of the state like Burnt, Kab, and Vermilion.  As of this morning, none of those lakes in the southern part of the state are ice out.  Are we still a month away from open water on V then?  God I hope not, but the math isn’t helping me feel confident.

      I heard there is open water in the oak narrows by Timbuktu marina!!
    • kelly-p
      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.
    • BRULEDRIFTER
      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.     
    • Surface Tension
      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine. 
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.
    • Surface Tension
      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.
    • Jim Almquist
      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.
