Take A Kid Fishing Tournament

Recommended Posts

Surface Tension

Grab that little fishing partner and head to Northwoods Children Services Contest for Kids.

June 9th 9AM-2PM

This is a great time and good cause. Jr and I will be there again this year.

We will also be donating to Northwoods Children Services in FM's name, rods and reels left over from out Sportsman's Sway Meet. Gary(ripstick), Randy(Loonasea,) and myself spent an afternoon refurbishing these combos along with spooling them up with line donated from Fisherman's Corner.

ST/Ripstick,

Wish that I could make this one with Junior, but we're having his birthday party the same day. Oh well, he does get the chance to get out on a regular basis, but I think he'd of really enjoyed it with a bunch of other kids.

Hopefully we can make it next year!

PS: Going to try and get him his first laker this weekend if the weather cooperates. He checked off coho on his list earlier this month smile.gif

Randy, they may be looking for someone to drive the pontoon boat. I've left a message as to policy of taking NCS kids out with your own boat. I think that each boat would need NCS staff aboard. I'll get a definite on that.

This is intended for all kids so if you have a son, daughter, grandkids, nephews, or even the neighbor kid, bring them out.

Frank,

I worked at Northwoods for 2 years. I believe the answer you will get is that a counselor should be present in the boat. Regardless of the official answer, I think you are going to want one in close proximity. Great kids, but they often need some special attention...

G&G, your are right. A staff is required in each boat but if we get a group of boats that stay relatively close to each other then only one staff per group will be needed, thats good news. So, there'll be around 50 kids from Northwoods that will be fishing from shore.

What'da say fellas, could we make that 50 kids fishing from a boat?

Email me if your interested in taking a couple kids fishing.

Hey frank do you think it will be better to have a couple of fmers to a boat so that one could take acouple of kids out 1on1.

Well, I am out 480 bucks (after tax) but I got me a new Eagle 502ci. Gave it a whirl tonight for about two hours out of the Wi entry. Seems to work well, color is awsome. Now I need a navionics card and I will be armed and dangerous.

Looking forward to getting my son on some fish next weekend!

Sorry everybody but my 3 yr old daughter just reeled her 1st fish in by herself on Monday so I think she is primed for this tournament. Am I a nerd if I am looking forward to getting her Dora the Explorer pole ready for Saturday? I have a boat but Im not bringing it cause I cant wait to spend some time fishing from shore. We might take some time though to throw rocks in the water(her...not me):-)

Great to see that some FMers will be there with kids.

The Sunnies are still in shallow and theres lots of them. Perfect for the kids and it couldn't get simpler! Bobber plain hook and a small leech or worm. Find weeds, reeds or cattails along the shoreline and the pannies will be there.

PS: The Dora rod might burn out so bring a backup. laugh.gif

Due to the storms at my house last night and the fact that the winds resulted in my breezeway and garage being "skinned alive". I regretfully will be spending my weekend trying to get something over the roof to protect it from further damage until the Ins Adjuster gets here. Good luck everyone.

      Its that time of year again pick up your heart guard and your flea and tick.  
    • Smoker2
      Where are you located?
    • eyeguy 54
      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon. 
    • mrpike1973
      Nice Crappie!
    • Rick G
      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
    • Bigfatbert
      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use! 
    • Bryan P
      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.
