? for outdoorswomen

266 posts in this topic

I am a newly single outdoorsman who is wondering if anyone else thought there should be a forum here for outdoorsmen looking for outdoorswomen?

I just don't think this the forum you want. In other words the wrong web sight. Good luck other wise, and use this forum for what it's supposed to be, to visit and share information.

Just my 2 cents worth.

If you are a "newly single outdoorsman", why would you be looking already. Enjoy your singlehood.

I'm really not sure how many single women are on this site but I agree this forum is not a dating forum. But good luck with the fishing partner search, anyfishwilldo! grin

I agree that here is probably not the best place for this type of forum, however I think it is a great idea! I think it would be awesome if there was a place for single's with our common interests (me included) to go and meet people. It's a hard game to be playing the older a person gets to try and find and meet new people with similar interests! Good Luck! smile Maybe at some of the future FM get togethers a singles meet and greet or something like that could be organized to help some of the single's get aquainted?

I agree, it's hard to find people really into the outdoors anymore...except here for sure... smile they should have a forum spot for that. Good luck finding your next fishing buddy! wink.

Well... people are doing it already... some are offering free seats... some are asking for free seats... and its an excellent way to make some good friends... I know I'll probably have a spot or two free once I finish my boat... but then again... not many wants to go muskie-fishing...

I havent met a fat guy in a pink/blue camo dress... but that could change sooner or later... grin

Ok, if you ever need someone to go musky fishing with, ask! I would love to do that!!! I have never caught one in my life but have tried a few times! So let me know if you have an open seat, I'll pick up drinks, gas, whatever. smile

Being a transplant from ND I would say a good percentage of my freinds in MN have come from this site in the last couple of years. We all share the same interests and haven't met an FM member I didn't like yet. Open seats work great, I always offer up an open seat. Just don't bring that pink/blue camo dress with you. laugh

Even though I am a female, I dislike the color pink, more of a lime green fan. I actually grew up next to Shamineau if you know where that is, somewhat known for muskies (not much else anymore, kinda a dead sea). A couple of my mom's husbands friends have pulled some monsters out of there. So, yeah, I am so up for it! I have to warn you, I try to out fish any guy I fish with, call it the feminist in me smile.

Would Chartruese suffice??? I dont think I have any lime green lures...

Yes I know where Shamineau is... and as far as I know... its still a good lake to fish for muskies if you know where to fish...

Outfish me? I welcome it... Given my luck... it wouldnt be any surprise if you outfish me ALL day... grin

I'll still find a green one though, just in case smile. Actually, the funny thing is, I have the best luck with greens when I fish. Pink is a close second I will admit.

I'll keep an eye out then... adding green to my stuff wont hurt a bit... but of course, pink and black takes the priority!

I actually realized I have nothing really for muskies, I should stock up. I'm more concerned about getting some ice fishing gear. I mooched off my ex last winter and feel bad not getting my own this year.

Like I said, just bring your fishing license, camera, sunglasses, and yourself... I basically have everything (rods/reels, lures, leaders, proper release tools)... basically, its something like this "Mi barco es su barco" (although the boat's coming home with me grin)... as long you're capable of using a baitcaster, you're good to go!

    • Sent you a long-winded PM... you been out on Lac qui Parle at all?
    • What I have ben enjoying is watching the fourth line on the ice and sometimes they are the best line out there. Playing late in games and giving the top two lines a rest may not seem like a  big deal now but come crunch time that rest just might make the difference. I picked the right time to put the cable back in I think I have only missed one Wild game this season plus I am watching a lot of umd hockey!  As for Sutter I think he is having a banner year, great plus/minus rating. he is scoring a few goals which is another plus and in the Chicago game when he traded sides of the ice with his d partner he pretty much shutdown a tiring Kane. Best time to watch Wild hockey is halfway through the game, they seem to find another level to play at.
    • 23 IN THE BOAT HERE ON HIDDEN BAY again today. Sunshine Ray’s extended forecast is calling for rising temps and sunshine every other day. This would give us a warm melt for the snow that has gathered on roofs and the Lodge should get busy. I can see a lot of fishermen out on the ice and more then a few will be taking off time from work to get out there. As a mater of fact I am at the Lodge this morning. Was feeling pretty good with lots of energy so I thought I would come in and do some ordering and touch base with some of our suppliers who make daytime deliveries.   First thing I noticed when the wife dropped me off was a couple of old lawn mowers outside. When I came in I found Tiny working on a small carburetor. I had to talk to him and I found out that somehow we, the Lodge have become a drop off spot for old, gently used lawn mowers. I then remembered the tongue in cheek commercial I had made a few weeks ago. Looks like someone was listening and dumped their junk on us. Tiny did say he thinks he can take the parts from the two and get one running. The Lodge needs a push mower so maybe this will work out afterwards. Tiny also mentioned that someone dropped off a case of thirty weight oil, Gus took that he said.   Luge run is up and running, with all the snow we received last week and the use of Nytelyter front end loader a run was built. With a sunny day followed by a cloudy day we should be able to ice it down and it will last the rest of winter. Well Skinny and Hammering Hank will be doing that. I did get word from Ranger Rick that he had an accident yesterday and will be laid up a few days. He was out checking on the trails at Samantha Lake when he slid the Ranger he was driving down a hill and hit a tree. He cracked the windshield with his head and hit the tree with his hip or part of the Ranger. He is suppose to go see Dock Berrium today but is dragging his feet and everything else trying to get out of bed. The pine tree is still down on Trappers Trail but a detour has been put in around it. Ranger Rick was headed to the tree and the chain saw and other stuff might have been part of the balance problem with the Ranger.   Christmas tree drive is done here at the Lodge. Not as many trees collected as last year but they have all been taken to the Resort to be disposed of. Actually they will be tied in bundles, weighted down and dropped into the bay come spring melt out. Elmer and DOC and Vic will do it and will keep their new crappie spots a secret. Of course if you want to find out where they are all you need do is take a ride in Vic’s mail boat and check the seats. He writes down all his good fishing spots in pencil on his wood bench seats because he does not know how to read them on his handheld GPS unit. The idea of drifting over some of the brush piles sounds like a good idea about now.   Forty may happen on Thursday which is a lot better then minus 20 I will have a day spent at the hospital doing tests. Last years tests are now all bench marks and I have to repeat them now a year latter to see how much damage has been done. Hoping I come out pretty good but I have a lot of work to do before fishing season comes this year. Launching a boat by myself may not be something I can do till late in the season but I sure would like to ride along with Chuck come June. So from a cloudy day here at the Lodge at Lake Iwanttobethere
    • They make a rail that when it slides closed it drops about 1/4". I have these and they are nice for driving down the road but my 3 and 5 year olds can't open them up!   For the doors, I used an rv type style clip. To open you have to push in and then they pop open.
    • I can't imagine a worse job on earth than trying to wrangle a house full of 2-4 year olds with a baby or 2 thrown in for an added challenge...but thankfully someone wants to do it.   Around here the absolute lowest I've seen at an in home day care was $140/week and that was for any age, price didn't change based on age.  $175 is pretty common (again no price change for different ages, my 3 year old and 8 month old cost the same) but have seen it up as high as $225 and all of them were basically at capacity. When you get into day care centers they you can be looking at $300-400/week and the price does go up for infants and babies.    It seems a lot of people get into doing day care when they have their own kids.  They stay home with them to save daycare costs and then bring in other kids to bring in some income and then it goes from there.  Ends up being a pretty decent solution as long as the other person can find a job that provides the benefits. 
      If she does do in home day care just make sure to keep that in mind when buying a new house.  A friends wife does daycare out of their house and he hated their old house because the house layout required daycare to essentially be in the middle of their main living area so he'd come home from work and be in the middle of day care trying to relax with a beer. They ended up moving so that they could get a house that had a good basement set up for a daycare so they could more or less contain it to one area and not let it infiltrate the rest of the house.    
    • Tons of fish on Mille Lacs. LOL right. Must had a lot of people with u for a ton on Mille Lacs.    
    • Up here its not that much but at a home daycare you are still looking at 120 for a toddler 150 for an infant... This way we can save 1700 bucks a month! plus make a few dollars on top.. She was a teacher in a daycare while attending school.. She has a knack for a bunch of kids.. Me not so much. Thanks for the advice nofish!
    • It's that time of year again. Bassmaster Fantasy fishing started up today. I created a group again named HSO Bass. Password: mnbass Feel free to join. 
    • I have both.  The drawer slides work well, but they do open up sometimes going across the lake.  I don't think I've ever had a cabinet door open, though.
