February 21st, 2009

Minnesota Valley Country Club – Bloomington

Doors open at 5:30p

You are cordially invited to attend the The Twin Cities Chapter of Muskies, Inc. annual banquet fundraiser. Our featured speaker is James Lindner. This year we are approaching $15,000 in prizes including;

Guns – including a Benelli shotgun

Guided Fishing Trips

Ice Fishing Gear from Vexilar and Clam

Entertainment Packages

St. Croix Legend rods

Plus loads of tackle, storage and other gear.

We still have a few seats available and tickets are only $35.00 each but you must have a reservation prior to the 17th to ensure we have enough food.

Did you know?

The Twin Cities chapter of Muskies, Inc. uses funds raised from events like this banquet for:

• Stocking muskie yearlings in Minnetonka, White Bear and other metro lakes, dramatically improving survival rate and increasing numbers of catchable fish sooner.

• Working with the DNR to develop a new long-range muskie management plan to include new muskie lakes.

• Playing an intergal role in getting public support to stock Lake Pokegama, a new lake in the DNR muskie management program.

• Maintaining muskie rearing ponds with plans to add more to implement additional stocking goals.

• Hosting, in cooperation with the Fish-A-Thon organization, youth fishing outings in the Metro area.

• Providing a fishing home opener for several hundred veterans at the Minnesota Veterans Home.

• Hosting outings with members of the Capable Partners organization.

The TE is still there. In fact I think we've got something like $1500-$2000 worth of Shimano reels at the event! As of the other day there was around $13,000-$14,000 worth of prizes for around 125 people signed up. I don't know about you but I like those odds!

Details you ask?...ok I'll spill some details.

Platinum registrations have a 1:36 chance at a Shimano Calcutta TE That's pretty good IMHO!

We have one rod for every 14 registered as of the date of this post.

We are now over $15,000 in prizes, no junk. Lots of high end prizes including some over $500 each.

This event should send a lot of people home with some very nice prizes and make enough money to help us turn up the dial on our stocking activities in the metro.

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
