FM SW MN get together

Recommended Posts

Eric Wettschreck

Fellas, I'm thinkin aboot putting an FM get together, together this summer. Very informal, no tournament or that type of jazz. Just us FM'ers getting together for a day of fishing, telling lies, sharing tips, and throwing some brats on the grill.

I'd like to have a place with 1- decent fishing, 2- a nice boat ramp, 3- some type of park/picnic area for grillin, hangin out, etc, 4- possibly camping if guys want to.

My thoughts are Lake Sarah county park, Lake Shetek state park, Lake Talcot county park, or Lime Lake county park.

Hit me with some input, thoughts, suggestions on where YOUS GUYS would like to do this.

Boiler, willing to help if you want. I live on West Graham all summer in Maka Ouici in my camper and there are usually plenty of open spots for camping with a nice playground, pavillion for grilling and picinc and you have many options for fishing with Talcot 5 miles, right on West Graham, and East Graham just 1 mile down the road. The landing at talcot is a little issue but I am working on getting some funding to have the ramp cleaned out for better assessability from our local fishing club. Any help you need shoot me a message.

Mark your calanders fellas, Saturday June 9.

I have no idea where or other plans quite yet. The Mrs and I are going to do a little driving around and scouting stuff out this upcoming weekend.

Muc, I didn't even think of West Grahm. I'll keep it in mind. Thanks.

Any other input from you fellas is surely welcome.

YIKES, I will be sailing the lovely waters of Lac Suel that week, leaving the 2nd and coming back home the 10th. Guess I will have to scratch another gettogether. I always get bungled up on the get together dates. Well still let me know if you need any help with anything.

Houseboat we have a group of 6 and another group of 10 from the Worthington area at the same time. We get a 65 footer, they get the 75. Great time! So many walleye's and smallies you almost get sick of catching so many... ok I said ALMOST!

I am mad that I will miss a get together in my back yard. It sounds like a great time. And you will all miss my famous fresh picked West Graham grilled asparagas tips. But I will surely think of all my FM companions while my rod tip bends 100 times a day at Lac Suel!!!!

Don't worry. We'll leave you a little something. Maybe a carp or 3 by your camper. You know, as a friendly reminder that you should have changed the date of your trip. grin.gif

Sarah will probably be the best bite around that time of year. Lots of boat traffic though.

My wife would love the bullheads, please clean them. she will be there. That would save me from having to buy a present while I am in Canada!!!!! Hey Boiler, I saw the extended extended extended forcast and the weather looks really bad that weekend, you better move it to the weekend after........ guilt sometimes works on my kids yet. So I try.

      Thanks, a day well spent with a good person for sure. Thanks again for the work you put in at the end of the trip!  Your fishing needs to get in better shape I think!😓
    • Wanderer
      You and that Senko were dialed in, no doubt about that!  I think if the wind wasn’t as harsh we could’ve explored the deeper water a little better and maybe got the jig bite dialed in on the hens.  Either way it was a fantastic fishing experience. Some day I’ll try a Senko - maybe. 😃   I think you’ll do very well there this weekend.  Thanks again for taking me with.  It was the best day of open water fishing I’ve had for some time, both fishing and partner wise.

      Made my wife move to the other side of the boat... Great weight shift!😅  Had to cook my own supper that night. ☹️

      Kinda quiet here.  Ive been out a number of times and have had a hard time finding anything consistent for active fish,  crappies or eyes.  Did ok this past weekend but fish were" one here and one there".  Cold front Sat. didn't help.  Looking forward to the weekend with some stable weather and a better bite.
    • ANYFISH2
      I opened up my by bass fishing season this past weekend with the great company of @Wanderer. The catch numbers were great by most respects.  Size was a little smaller on average than I had hoped, I kinda bragged up this little gem and size fell a bit short. 17 as approx the max size we boated on Sat. Fished seem to be in groups concentrated in certain areas, very scattered in between.  Our best action came fishing away from shore, better fish as well.  Plenty of fish were crusing on the shorelines as well they definitely ran smaller though. Wanderer was able to show me how to work a jig effectively as that has never been a tactic I am proficient at.  Thanks Wanderer.  I tried to show the ease and effectivenss of the Senko.   It all  work well as we probably boated over a hundred fish for the day. Everyone share your 2018 Bass experiences here, keep us in loop of what is working you!

      Thanks, James! That weather really put fish on the move. Our focus for the tournament was to get two big bites and catch a pair over 26". We felt like in order to do that we had to go west. We had a milk run of spots that were taking big wind so we just rotated through them during the day. Our fish came from 3'-13' casting jerkbaits, Rippin Raps and swimbaits. My dad had been catching a lot of walleyes on shallow rocks while pre-fishing for the bass tourney which really tipped us off on some locations and presentations. We only caught six walleyes during the tournament but they were the right ones. We feel unbelievably fortunate to have had such an awesome experience!
    • monstermoose78
      So so true @Borch!! I am excited to see this grow and read all the reports
    • Borch
      Great to see some good information flowing.  I'm looking forward to seeing more good reports and stories from even more of us in the forums and clubs.  Keeping the information flowing in both is essential. Thanks for all you do.
    • Rick
      We would like to recognize 4 of our best posters in the forums and the Minnesota Fishing Reports Club. I will be giving each one a special goodie, if they get into the right club soon enough. Special thanks goes to @IceHawk, @Borch, and @monstermoose78 for the contributions leading what will require a persistent high quality effort to make the Fishing Report Club a must stop spot for fishing information. The 4 TOP GUN anglers who have been amazingly consistent since we first opened up the Fishing report club are: @AlwaysFishing23, @ANYFISH2, @Jim Almquist, and @mrpike1973. I'd like you 4 to check the right club out to claim your goodie by next Monday. Yes it will pay to pay attention to what is going on in here. The fishing reports will just keep getting better. Keep your eyes open. More goodies will be given based on different criteria, like best stories in the forums and clubs, best pictures, best videos, and more. We're looking for more Official Fishing Report Team members. If you are interested, message me. Have fun and enjoy the ride.
