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

    • I like the slush. If you don't, swipe the chips on one side of the hole with your foot before you break threw and let it run for second or two.  This will flush it out.  Having some slush in a hole in shallow water on a sunny day is sometimes a benefit.  If fish are spooky on a sunny day fishing in the open put some slush in the hole.  You might be surprised.

    • 32 HERE IN THE boat on Hidden Bay, some sunshine but it looks a lot warmer then it is. Back at the cabin after running a few errands in town. Had to go down to the Lake Iwanttobethere Bank where I slipped into Mr. Fergenson office, the bank president to approve some town transactions. I do this from time to time but never mention it but now that you know I am working in the background helping the town out I thought I would share a little of what is being done around here to keep looking good. Today I approved a pink paint job on the fish cleaning station down by the access and also one of the docks is in need of replanking so that to will get done before fishing season starts. A check was sent out to the street cleaning company and the flag on the pole in the center of town will be replaced.   A donation was made to the Ladies Auxiliary to pay for their rental and we talked about the request to resod the softball field in time for the church league season. The big check was for ten thousand walleye fingerlings to be hauled into the lake under the cover of darkness to keep them walleye guys happy. Another donation to the volunteer fire dept. And my favorite thing Mrs. Gleason to her surprise will find out that she won a contest at the bank which just happens to be enough to pay off her mortgage. Money was donated to the Lodge to pay for six membership and they will be drawn for in a contest that Gus will come up with, his job now as the manager.   A couple of new bike racks for around town, and a fresh coat of paint on the two parking spaces and a good cleaning of the meter where DOC Burriem still ties his car to when he is in town. An envelope with a couple of dollars to the Smith kid to keep helping out Ma and Pa after school with sweeping their sidewalk. An order confirming Diggers flowers for all the town’s planters and a new planter out on the road leading the way to Lake Iwanttobethere and maybe touching up the sign. Next month I will have to look at the grass contract and there was talk that the boat landing needs to be dug out some. A few fire rings may have to be ordered for the park. I enjoy being the little birdy listening to what we need done around the town as I sit behind the bar wiping out mugs with my towel. Have been doing this for a long time and I enjoy spending bucks. Makes me happy to put a smile on someone’s face. Now it is not all me the town does bring in money I just help Mr. Fergenson out when the town is a little short or I see where I can help the town out.   I have always backed the Lodge as a place where guys can go and put their feet up, not a place where people go to get money for stuff. My me donating we keep the fishing contests going. I do donate a lot to the school for things because I want our kids to enjoy being kids not having to learn how to be salesmen in the second grade trying to earn money for field trips. Of course there I have a price tag and that is they get at least one ice fishing trip and one summer trip. If they don’t have rods Masterbaiters seems to find a check for them. Now this is not a total secret, of course Mr. Fergenson knows about me and the town along with Elmer and Big Earl and Vicki at the bait shop, they also help donate or at they get the town stuff at cost. There are a lot of people out there who love to donate and a kid’s smile is all they want in return. I find that smile means a lot to me these days. My 765 birthday today, everyone now is kind of special and you might have figured it out, my birthday is the day I go see Mr. Fergenson here at Lake Iwanttobethere
