Location- Carver landing on the east end of town by the park.

Time- 2pm or whenever one wants to arrive.

I will be bringing some door prizes for this event and Thanks goes out to DTRO for the help also.

We can set a time of 5pm to all meet at the public landing for a meal. If a few of us bring some wood and a grill, that should be enough for a bon fire and also supper. This will be a bring your own food and drink event.

Please post below if you can bring a grill or wood. I will have a few prizes for maybe the most unique catch and something else.

I hope this works for all and it will be a good time to meet fellow FMers and just maybe learn a secret or two from them.

For those that don't have a boat, one could fish from shore or I'm sure there will be others with boats with room for 1 or 2 others. Please post if you have room for others or if you need a ride so we can get everyone out fishing.

I hope to see all of you there. This event is for everyone

looking for some bait or tackle for this event, check out Moore's bait & tackle for those needs. Bob will be sure to see that you are well equipped for catfishing.

Count myself and Andy a fellow catfisherman in....I'll bring a bunch of Hy-Vee brats and a couple cases of soda for people. Neither of us have a boat so we were looking for an open spot otherwise we have no problem shore fishing since that's what we already do. Can't wait to meet some fellow FM'ers and learn a thing or two....

Ah, the Dtro grill! The food that thing has seen!

I have not gotten one yet, but it is on my list and I want to make a custom mount on the front of my boat for it grin

I have a great table that I could bring. It has been at a couple FM events now and served a great purpose.

Hope to see everyone!

Maybe we could get the elusive master of everything that goes on here, D30 to make appearance. I would make the trip, just to shake his hand cool. I heard he has not been out much this year.

you can put me down for bring a grill and a couple of tables and of course food. I also might have papasoco with and two other buddies that are very into catfishing. Papasoco and myself both have boats so we might be able to fit a person into each. Anything else that is needed just let me know and if I have it it will be brought.

Yep, wasn't sure if you go up to three or not. Three would be fine in there. So I should have an open seat.

I'm right there with you BG. This will be my first time for this type of fishing. I've caught channels, but never really fished hard for them. Should be a good time. Looking forward to meeting you.

    • The buck in the picture is from private land not far from Duluth.  Not much ag land in the area.  The propertyI'm hunting has a lot of apple trees and thats what he's after in this picture.  Not a lot of oaks/acorns from what I can see, not sure what all the other properties have for food.  This is my first year hunting this land so my scouting hasn't been super extensive yet.
    • It wll depend some on farmland buck or northwoods brush eating buck. 1.5 easy, 2.5 fairly easy, 3.5 and older a much tougher buck to age. Used to send our jaws to Madelia,MN for aging and or we were lucky at the old Gene's Standard gas station in New York Mills MN as in the 80's and early 90's there was a guy from the DNR there aging them for us, the drawback was if you wanted to headmount they seemed to cut up the cheek to check the teeth or tooth that like a ring on a tree told him the age. I'd guess 4.5 year old in the picture but does mild winters and genetics play a part, I'd think so.
    • I thought perhaps the scans might have revealed that the tumor was inoperable before the surgery.   Apparently that was not the case.  It sure is a tough way to go.   You have my sympathy.   Watching her sister was very hard on my wife.  It was bad for me, but much harder for her.   The sister had two college age kids at the time as well.   New locations for the cancer kept showing up, in her case all in the bones.  
    • I'll have to look into those.  So far I've just used LED lanterns, but I end up bringing them home and leaving them. Sorry, didn't mean to hijack the thread.  I'm just poking around looking for ideas on my own build.  rl_sd built a nice one!  Where do you find formed aluminum like that?  All I've seen available are the flat sheets.
    • Thanks Lip Ripper, I used a mix of 14 and 16 gauge 1x1 on my last house.  I used 14 gauge in the corners and V as well as the studs holding up the bunks.  That probably wasn't necessary. I wouldn't mind using 2x1, but doesn't that cover up the entire outer tube on the frame?  What supports your plywood floor around the edges? I know exactly what you mean with the galvanizing being worth it.  We build park equipment and always recommend galvanizing over any other finish for the durability.
    • They make so many small LED lights these days you can get a brighter light that runs on 2 or 4 AA batteries and last a whole season. That's what made the biggest difference for me. I agree you need a coming and going light and another for by the bed.  
    • Hi Del, she did so many PET, MRI, CAT and other tests.  When they got in the surgeon said that the tumor was peanut shaped from lower thru the mid and starting to get into the upper lobe.  At that point no other cancer was seen on tests.  It was after the treatments that it had spread throughout and we figured that it was in her brain at the time she went to hospice house.  It is a tough cancer and painful.  Thanks for your thoughts.  Jeff
    • Last I talked with Tebben they weren't galvanizing frames.  That may have changed in the last few months. Regardless of manufacturer, galvanizing is a substantial up-charge, but worth it ($600-1,000).  No coating any manufacturer is currently doing last more than a couple years.  Paint, powder coating, and bed liner are all going to end up rusty in a very short time.    Don't use 14 gauge for your studs.  Use 16 or less, if you can find it.  1x1 is probably fine, but I've not seen it used.  You'll get a lot more strength from something rectangular shaped, but added strength may not be necessary.  1x1 will already be stronger than any wood stud.     Edit to add: I know nothing about the manufacturer page you cited, but their prices are in line with all the other hydraulic frame manufacturers.  
    • I always thought it would be nice to have the interior lights 12 volt, just so you don't have to fire up a generator every time you walk in to flick on the lights. That's the mistake I made in my backwoods cabin was running everything in a way that I had to start the generator just to see at night!
    • How do you guys estimate the age of bucks you see in the field?  Anything special you look for as a clear giveaway?  Young bucks normally aren't too tough but once they get to 3 1/2 it can be a little tougher. Here is the big guy from my trail cam this year.  We can use it for discussion purposes.  I've got a guess on age but lets here what you guys think for age and what is the giveaway for you.  Also you can't see both sides of the rack in this picture but he's fairly symmetrical however he's missing a point on the other side making him a 9.  I do have other pictures of him but not digital ones.
