High School Ice Fishing Club

21 posts in this topic

Me and my friend Chris have recently started an ice fishing club at Mounds View High School. We are both Juniors and thought our school needed something for the outdoorsmen. I was wondering if anyone knows of any ice fishing clubs being created at other high school so we could hold contest or something? I think it would be very cool if other schools in the state made ice fishing clubs as well.. I would also like to give a shout out to Strikemaster and Clam for being so generous to sponsor our club!

Thanks!

Ryan

LOL- I gave up golf 3 years ago because the last two times I did it, I couldnt get out of bed the next day (bad disk in lower back)...

Best of luck with the club!, Wish you were closer, I would love to help!

Man...what a great idea. You must have some pretty sweet teachers down there. Didn't that one guy get the Marcum fellas to come out one time last year?

Yup that is Mr. Nuss (Jon Nuss) He is the one that will be sponsoring and helping us out with the club wink

He's really a great guy!

Cool idea. I'm a junior too. Too bad Moundsview is a ways from here, otherwise I'd be interested in meeting up with you guys during a contest or something.

Sweet. We just contacted our Activities Director and got a non-school sponsored club set-up. Then you just have to get a teacher that is willing to sponsor your club and get some members! We would love to have a contest sometime just let me know! We will probably have between 10-20 members but we put a cap at 20 so it isnt too many people.

Yup, that would be fun. You can also contact me at:

MVHSicefishing at hotmail dot com

I will be talking to you in the near future!

I think it would be fun if we could get some other schools involved and get some type of North Metro Tournament going or something.

Yea that would be cool too. I talked it over with some of the guys at the meeting today and they thought it was a great idea! In our first meeting today we came up with 12 members which I thought was a good turnout!

We also acquired another sponsor today in Nature Vision!

Thanks again to all our sponsors!

Crappieman,

Im a senior at Esko high school, a ways north of the cities, but we also have an ice fishing club at our high school. We started up this club last year although ours isnt as formal as yours, more of just a group of friends who fish and hunt all the time and we get our picture in the yearbook and stuff but thats pretty much it. We call it the Sportsmens team just to include hunting in there too. I could possibly get some guys to make an official ice fishing team and maybe meet up for a contest sometime. How did you guys get those sponsors? Do they actually give you guys gear and stuff? i would be interested in getting something like that started in my school

    • Keep an eye on those trees. They tend to jump in the way when your not looking.    won't be the same without ya. 
    • Truth be told it was the outstate money that originally built the metro into what it is. Without that funding St Paul would be nothing more than St Peter is today. 
    • Can't argue with the last part
    • I wonder if a person gets an extended warranty if that will help?  I have a 2011 with 5.3 silverado and all is good today so I'm thinking og looking into that.
    • My last kayak adventure was less than stellar wound up in the drink. And it was a cold drink at that. A very memorable paddle up to that point. It was the first time I had ever been on the water with snow on everything. It was awesome.    Alas, my 'yaks are all put up for the season now. Waiting for next years adventures to begin. 
    • I am toying with the idea of doing a little calling this weekend. The moon is nice and dark, so the first and last few minutes  of daylight might make something happen. It all depends on what I stumble into for sign. The majority of the deer hunters have been done for a while, so the free meals are going to be getting harder to come by. 
    • The fans I was talking about are 12 volt and only 1" deep. Putting them under the heater might not do the job because the heat from heater rises. If you have room in the lower cabinet on your heater you could mount one fan inside and blow the heat out the grill on the front of the heater.
    • I thought last night's game was surprisingly entertaining considering how low scoring it was for most of it. Not sure if people outside of MN and TX would agree. Rudolph dropping that ball in the end zone was devastating - IMO it was a bigger play than the final one. As much as I hate to see us continue to lose, I honestly have never seen a team lose so many starters at key positions and still be competitive. Says a lot about our coaching, depth, and players buying in.   Will be interesting to see what we can do with our OL without having a 1st rd pick this off season. As others have said, it wouldn't be a bad strategy to use every draft pick we have on the linemen.      
    • Yes. Unlike you I have a job and a life.   I'll just say that whatever it's about you are right because that's the only thing I could ever say that you would possibly agree with me on. I won't get in the way of your libertarian fantasies.
