Mankato Meet (feeler)

Recommended Posts

Myself and MinnesnowtaWild (Jeff) were just curious if there would be any interest in a Mankato meet-up sometime in May. We were thinking about perhaps meeting up and grilling early in the evening and then fishing once it gets dark out. It would be a great way to meet some of you guys on here, and would be a lot of fun as well. I would like to gauge your interest in something like this, so that I can talk to the Mankato Park Board and let them know if and when we would be doing this ... we would probably meet up at Sibley Park or Land of Memories park, as these parks would allow for a number of fishermen(and women smile ) to utilize the area in an efficient, non-crowded manner.

*I had also given a bit of thought towards maybe a half hour or so where we could go around the park a bit and clean up some of the trash that plagues the park, and I think that the Park Board would be a bit more receptive towards the meet if we offered to give back a bit and help clean before we fish.

Any interest fellas?

Well the date is still up in the air, as this is just a feeler (to gauge interest ... see if this is going to be a reality or not). Once we figure out if there is an interest, we can start tossing dates and times around.

*off topic but you're a mankato-an as well? You fish around here much?

Rushing and Klye B would be of great help you guys if you need some insiders on making this work beings they have put on quite a few gatherings june is also a good month . and maybe with rushings connections with justin timberlake he could get him to sing for us before we go out on the river fishing that night. That would top all gatherings just do it rob.

Stam has been tryin to get me to listen to Timberlake for a couple of years now. He is such a big fan the first thing he did with his new boat is to put a sticker of his beloved JT on it.

I just chalked it up to him being an Iowan. I say what ever floats your boat and Timberlake seems to float his!

I tell ya what, Justin is a cool cat. It was nice of him to make it to our gathering a few years ago.

I know someone who was having a ball with him:

I remember that gathering well!!

Besides JT, that was the gathering where Harvey Lee's boat almost got crushed by a tree. Thought I heard the tree was still there.

Stam34... you getta new boat? I got your text and completely forgot about it. If you still have those Ram holders, I'll be more than willing to take them off your hands.

Yeah, Larry hopping on his back and yelling "Justin is bringing sexy back!" as he rode him around the boat landing was definitely a highlight of the gathering.

    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
    • Haha, sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders and great perspective, Borch.  Plus, I think it's good to be upset about missing!  It motivates a guy to take more selective shots and make better shots.  My shot selection was ok, but my execution was not good.  I made a good shot at a stationary target, but the target was walking.  D-U-M, dumb!!!  Such is life!  Next year Morgan and I will shoot turkeys (as long as I can still get her out there).  
    • From what I read the idiot did not tell anybody....was asked to play in the World's and declined saying his wrists hurt so they made him go in and found the torn tendons...what a duffus.
    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.  
    • Excellent.  Nicely done.
    • You got it, Borch!  I was disappointed with how the season ended, but you're definitely right!  I also learned a trick this year- cards!  Morgan really enjoyed playing cards with me in the blind.  It was a good way to pass the time and we enjoyed it quite a bit.  We had a great season together and enjoyed it a ton!     That last encounter we had was really something!  I'm convinced the worst thing birds can do to a bowhunter is to come in to the deeks is stand there and stare.  I'd rather they hung up and didn't come in or did pretty much anything but that.  It makes it virtually impossible to get a bow drawn!  The turkey was at about 5 yards, because I knew we I needed one close for Morgan.  However, at five yards and staring directly in the direction of the blind, she was smart to not try to draw.  That dang bird stood there for two full minutes and didn't move a muscle.  Morgan had a smile from ear to ear and at one point told me "I was so excited and my heart was pounding so hard I thought I might die!"     It would have been a slam dunk with her crossbow, but she wanted to get one with a vertical bow.  I'm proud of her for sticking with it and she said "I'm just fine with not shooting one, Dad."  I'm glad she's ok with that.  I wish I was more ok with it...  but, that's hunting!  
    • Sounds like he is going to bring "fire" to the team haha.  Hoping he can come up with something to do with all the aging players who aren't living up to their contracts.     Also heard that Coyle played the last 2 months with torn ligaments in his wrists.  Going in for surgery.  Kind of an eye opener really, Coyle with torn wrist ligaments is better than anything they could've moved up that is healthy?  Uh oh....
    • Hey, it's all good. Morgan and you spending time together in the outdoors and getting a close encounter is what it's all about.     Sometimes the birds win and we simply run out of time.
