SC Forum Month Fishing Outings

1 post in this topic

There is a loose knit, no obligation/competition group forming in the South Central Forum, but anyone who would want to make the drive down is welcome to come. The following is a list of lakes, dates, and times.

Dec 20- Walleyes on Elysian- 1:00 PM

Jan 24- Panfish on German- 7:00 AM

Feb 21- Crappies on Duck Lake- 1:00 PM

March 14- Perch on Tetonka- 7:00 AM

April ?- Looking to get a group to go to Redwing/Mississippi River, but I've never been there, not sure of what time frame is best? A two day trip was brought up, with a motel stay.

May 20- Walleyes/Crappies on Madison-5:00 PM

June 13- Walleyes/Bass on Sheilds- 7:00 AM

July 18- ? July was terrible for me this year, still up in the air about this one, more than likly targeting Bass/Northerns, Is Lure still too weedy at this time?

Aug 22- Walleyes/Bass on Tetonka- 7:00 AM

Sept 23- Walleyes on Madison- 5:00 PM

October 24- Big Fall Walleyes on Lake?......Possibly head to Sarah, long drive for some but worth it from what I hear.

These will not be competitions, and you do not need to target the species mentioned. I just put them down as an idea of what will be active at that time. I will always be chasing walleyes, and some people will always chase bass....But we can still be friends right? I am trying to come up with an idea for a traveling trophy, possibly thought of some type of removable decal that the person who catches the biggest fish can place on their boat.

Both planned outings on Madison are Wendsday nights, trying to stay away from those weekend crowds and open up more opportunities to attend. Also the next weekend in September could possibly be duck opener, and I won't be missing that.

I will be bringing a big pot of Goose Chili to the January outing on German, if the fishing isn't good at least we can be warm and full right?

As far as meeting locations and more exact details, I will post closer to the events.

If anyone has an suggestions for other lakes or other questions about this please feel free to email me with it, nick_domeier77@hotmail.com.

Otherwise, anyone who is interest, please let us all know so we can start getting a list together.

    • We live in some sort of Bizarro world now - Sarah Palin calling Trump sinfully stupid.     Here's another one from Ann Coulter, who literally wrote a book "In Trump We Trust"    
    • You do realize that if the taxes were done that way, the cities would get $2.53 billion richer, and rural areas would get $2.53 billion poorer. The 7 county metro pays substantially more taxes (nearly 2/3 of the states total) than the other 80 counties in Minnesota combined, but only receives roughly half of the state expenditures.   Sorry to break it to you, but rural America is not fiscally solvent. Those citiots you speak of are bankrolling the entire country. It's easy to see on this chart: more urban states are to the left (givers) and more rural states are to the right (takers).  
    • I tried to purchase the screws yetti uses from Fastenal who is their vendor for the screws. They are only sold in large reels designed for a self loading screwgun. I finally called Casey at Glacial lake docks where I purchased my yetti and he sent me out the amount I needed. They work great to add additional fir strips. The plastic used to tie them together comes right off as you screw them in. Hope that helps. 
    • Sorry...was wrong on the specs.   Manufacturer is Core Ice.  It was 1450# for a 12' and 1250# for a 8'.  
    • I believe you want to use a zinc coated or galvanized steel according to the charts.  I'm sure someone will come along to correct me
    • In the back room there is a company that is using bonded foam panels (similar to garage door panels, but really clean looking), and had weights of 1250# for a 12' and 1450# for a 16'.  Aluminum trailer frames that could convert to a skid frame.  Can't recall the name.  I'm sure they were spendy, but I can see a concept like that going somewhere for the hardcore fishing crowd.   Yetti, Firebrand, Big Bite, and Glacier all had really nice display models.      Lots of campers (disguised as fish houses) out there at prices that make me want to jump into the business.  I was in two different manufacturers houses with prices well over $30k that had wire nuts for connections.  That is going to be a fun adventure for someone 2-3 years down the road when they find out their manufacturer saved $15 on their wiring.           
    • Thank you for all the help!  Ended up going with the Marcum VS485C.  After some research, there were a few other Marcums that were on the list (825 & 625), the Aqua Vu HD, and the Pan Cam.  The mini cams from all manufactures weren't what I was looking for, but they are cool and do have their place.     After seeing everything in person, I think the Aqua Vu HD had the best camera/screen.  The Marcums were a little bit behind, but the 825, 625, 485, and Pan Cam had similar real life clarity.  The 485 won out because of the $300 price point vs the others at $450-700, and was almost identical for resolution, other than the HD.
      I honestly think these cameras are all about 5+ years behind in technology in comparison to the broader camera/tv screen market.  Running off a 7-9ah battery is probably one of the limiting factors.  Another may be the cold.  The main reason (IMO) is that the manufacturers are hoping they can incrementally rape us by trickling out technology each year, similar to the computer manufacturers of the 90s/early 2000's.  For the price of a middle of the road underwater camera, I can buy a Chinese made 50" TV (these all have Chinese made 5-8" screens) and a GoPro or Sony Action Cam (which is 10x's the picture quality).       
    • Any newcomers in the wheelhouse business at the Ice show in St. Paul?
