1st annual 'Boji Bonanza!

2 posts in this topic

You are all invited to come and have some fun with the FM/HSO/IceLeaders crew at the first annual ‘Boji Bonanza January 10th at 8am at Emerson Bay on the SW side of West Lake Okoboji right off of Highway 86.

Get your eyes ready to peer into the crystal blue waters and get set for panfish heaven!!! You might even encounter the sighting of a 50 inch Musky while you sight fish for slab crappies, big bull gills, and we can even find a shelf in deeper water and sight fish some fantastic walleye!!! All you need to do is show up!

We will meet at the parking lot of Emerson Bay and try to keep traffic on the lake to a minimum as the crystal blue lake can yield some spooky pannies. In a group or spreading to cover some ground, the weed beds to the sandy flats can produce a real BONANZA of fish. We will fish the morning, take a break and join to gather some information on presentations that work on ‘Boji and grab a bite to eat together.

If you have never fished the Iowa Great Lakes, YOU ARE IN FOR A TREAT!

So get your finesse plastics ready and lets fish the first ever ‘BOJI BONANZA with FishingMinnesota - HotSpotOutdoors - IceLeaders.

West Lake Okoboji is the second largest in the chain of lakes at 3,850 acres with depths up to 134’. It is one of Iowa’s most popular lakes because the subterranean springs that make the water clear blue. It is one of only three true blue water lakes in the world. This glacial lake was created by the Wisconsin Glacier nearly 4,000 years ago.

For those looking for shut eye accommodations, please contact Friends of FishingMinnesota the Northland Inn. Be sure to tell them you are coming for the FM event.

If you have questions, ask away!

We are here to help!

    • I like the Wal-Mart corn to!
    • When is the date unsold bear tags go onsale?
    • I may try smoked rough fish on my bait this year. Anyone tried smoke fish on the bait pile?
    • Does anyone eat or use mooneyes? I caught one in the St. Croix today. Nothing else, it was interesting fish!
    • I hope to take a trip to ND this season, maybe they will get first ice before we do.
    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".     
    • Can't build a taller garage when it's a tuck-under with sheet-rocked 7' ceilings!!! The truck sits up high....
    • bigger garage!!
    • Same thing here...*TWANG*  I took my big snippers to mine and screwed a black wire nut cap on the cut end. Or unscrew one from a junkyard F-150 and saw it off. Looks fine.
    • I've fished it once about 10yrs ago Ice fishing from fishermans wharf....caught one perch in 3 days.   I was thinking about trying the lake once again with my wheel house..but it looks to be shut down. I talked to a guy from the Mille lacs area last winter at upper red, and he said the lake was great and it was the best he'd had for large fish ever on the lake.   I did did some reading and seen quite a few different views. The one I found most compelling and seemed to make the most sense after reading and looking at data was the view of a walleye population being mismanaged with slots, allowing for way to many large fish that have basicly eaten themselves out of food with the baitfish they prey on. Which in turn turned them into predators of their own young walleye. Hence the collapse of the walleye.
