Could use some thoughts and help

6 posts in this topic

I want to put a kids get-together together (huh crazy that freak anyone else out?). Anyway, here is the link to it Kids GTG

I could use any thoughts or advice from everyone. And if you can participate, would be even better. I haven't even got a date yet, but I'm thinkin' in Augest sometime.

I like someone's idea of pontoon but that could get kind of hairy with all those little excited lines in the water. Probably from shore or a pier would be the best though huh? My only advice is bring plenty of snacks and drinks!

That's what I'm thinking. I gotta find a lake to fish and I'm thinking August sometime. Fishing should pick up towards the end of the month but I don't want to get it too close to school. I really want to get them on boats instead of shore for those that don't have a chance to get out on boats. It can be exciting for them.

I've been a part of these before. Its pretty satisfying.

We went to French Park on Medicine Lake in Plymouth. Got everybody together in the A.M. and assigned them to boats.

(Let buddies fish together)

Fished for about 3 hours. Some kids want longer and some shorter, but that really is enough time.

Don't make a contest out of it. The bigger fish will bring out the stories anyway.

We grilled in the Park and handed out some prizes during the picnic. I remember there were some Super Soakers that went over well. eek

So there's some framework to think about. Oh, I'm sure you've already thought of this but make sure you have a good safety checklist including those important PFD's that fit.

You'll be considered the organizer and responsible party.

mad That dang legal that hangs on the end of things! wink

I'm in. where and when? How about Prior Lake, there's Sand Point Beach right next to the public launch. It's got good crappie and walleyes.....there's plenty of parking at the launch, even on Saturdays. I've got a few extra life jackets for the little ones, and even have a couple extra fishin rods. let me know.....

    • My wife and I like to float down the Crow from Rockford to the Mississippi. Hardly anyone on the river except Bald Eagles. Found some nice chicken of the woods mushrooms last summer.
    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
    • Just random ones I like. 1) Grand Marais fall. 2) HSO member Laker fishing. 3) Door County Wis.
    •   Yep and the Hawks won again!
    • Choosing 3 "best photos" is tough, but here are 3 of my favorites right now.  Cottonwood vs. Lightning Morel cluster  Pup in the snow
    • Missed the game but I guess I am glad I did. 9 games to go, still time to right the ship but at this pace the blues are going to pass us up.
