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.....

    • Glad to hear you're back up and running again.          
    • I got my boat back today and it runs great now but the mechanic said I had too many idling hours on it and it had a lot of carbon build up. I have trolled a lot with this motor . It has ran great but I did have  this recent issue with it where I had to bring it in and it runs good now. Mechanic recommended run it more often at higher rpm's.  For those that troll with their main engine,  how often do you run in a higher rpm's? I  use carbon guard  and thought that that would prevent the carbon buildup.  If I trolled for three or four hours at a higher RPM would that be too much ?          
    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
