looking for a brave sole

19 posts in this topic

heading back home and nobody wants to fish with me anymore. something about it being cold out or something.....

anyway i want to hit the pond (mille lacs) thursday afternoon and evening and sunday afternoon and evening. i have a boat partner for sunday evening and all day monday but dont want to be short handed thursday and sunday afternoon.

this is weather permitting. waves wind and cold dont bother me but the boat can only break so much ice.

anyone interested in joining me or going to be out? if your going to be in the area let me know maybe we can at least stay in eye contact. as far as being on my boat all thats needed is plenty of warm clothing. if you have a fav. rod or some baits you want to bring i am sure i can find room for them.

normal plan is head out for a few hours and do a little casting and some trolling. head in warm up eat and the back out for some more. the where depends on the wind and who and how many are working on keeping boat ramps open. i am heading back up tonight and will be making the rounds to see what is open.

reply here and i can call you back later tonight or in the morning - my cell is dead and have no phone till later.

I can go, but I just looked at the weather forecast for Garrison tomorrow and it said a high of 18* and 15-25 mph wind from the NW. I know my reels would freeze up pretty fast. Are you planning on trolling?

I'm not brave enough to go on the pond tomorrow. If anyone else is interested in going with Matt, let him know. I can handle the temps, but the wind is what is keeping me from going. The weekend looks better, and so I might get out on a smaller lake if it's not frozen.

Sounds good, i'm planning on hitting the metro unless a phone call from you says otherwise. I have a partner in tow, room for 3 in your rig? I'm up tonight, feel free to ring me for skeptical planning.

You got that right! So was pulling a few people out who shouldn't have launched there... lol.

We did ok, moved 5-6 fish but they were very lazy follows. Came back and moved 'em at dark again too, but nobody biting.

Sunday was out on 'tonka, same story. Had 3 fish follow at once on a weedline, that was kinda cool. Two big girls and one smaller one, all hanging out for about a minute. One was pretty hot until it got into the vicinity of the other two.

Never made it too the big pond.

Not much happening for us on Saturday. Got the boat out with no problems so I guess it was a succesful trip. I heard somebody was there on Sunday trying to back their boat right down the ramp and break the ice with the boat/trailer. Not a good idea when you're dealing with 3" of ice.

I have heard you talk about gloves on here before, should've taken a look at those when I was chatting with you at the launch. My hands weren't lasting long while casting out there. Wind wasn't helping any.

WOW, I can't imagine trying to get in the launch...how'd they miss our tracks??!! haha

The gloves proved to be awesome, casted both days till late without getting cold. Your hands do get wet, but they are warm. Glacier Gloves,821BK Best cold weather fishing glove. Huge vote from me, I'll be putting them through further testing this week. cool

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
