?Mille Lacs Weekend?

Recommended Posts

Guest

OK, sick boy here need's info on all the good time's I missed out on, as if I don't feel crummy enough already?

I was very eager to get a chance to meet everyone this weekend, but it was a no go for me due to a touch of phenomena. Thought I had my nasty little cold beat but it had other ideas for me I guess?

(FYI)-Feeling better this morning, fever is gone and I can breath much better now.

So, how went the kid's event Lisa?

The big boy's & girl's play nice & stay out of trouble? Like Rick, Skeeter, Paul & you for instance?

LOL!

Bet it was a blast!

Eddy,

I really was hoping you could have come......Yes, it was a blast!

We had an impressive turnout, (especially when you consider the below zero temps! ) As you know, the kids tourney was my main project for the day. We had 60 youngsters brave the cold. The smiling faces and red cheeks will be in my memory bank for many years. I am proud to have been given the opportunity to help plan and coordinate such an event. (Thanks Rick!!)

After being registered, the kids took part in a free sloppy joe lunch. They each won lots of prizes such as toys, candy, cash, gift certificates and tackle. They played a learning game created and performed by local DNR officers with the help of Mille Lacs County Sheriff personnel. The Mille Lacs County Hover craft even went for a spin around the bay! The highlight for many was watching the hot air balloons floating across the frozen lake and landing right in front of us!

The Fishing Minnesota forumguides and participants congregated at Mac's Twin Bay on Friday evening to meet one another. We ended up calling each other by our forum names. It was a great time and I can't wait for next year!

I hope you will be there!

I would have been too sick to appreciate all the fun but you sure did a bang up job for them kid's. I bet they will remember that day for a very long time!

Participation & caring like you have shown is what builds future fisherpersons through education and fun. Great job Lisa & crew!

ATA-GIRL LISA! Job well done! The gang all speak very well of you and rightfully so by what I can see.

I am not avoiding anyone I really wish I could have made the weekend, it was beyond my control. I was very sick and still am not feeling 100% yet. Sure getting caught up on my sleep though, that is when I am not hacking that is. I'm a big baby, hate sick, sick suck's! BOO-HOO!

BE..><ND>

Thanks for the kind words, Eddy. The kids are the reason we all do what we do, right?!

Now, take your vitamins, drink lots of juice and keep your socks dry!

    • I have a 2013 ecoboost since new, now have 85,000. Starts right up.
    • 1/16 oz chartreuse forage minnow. No need for anything else.
    • Got out on local trails for a quick 60 mile ride ,,,, 3rd set of tracks on a freshly groomed trail ,,, It was like riding on a ribbon,,, Trail conditions near Duluth  are ideal with all the snow we have received,,, Ya gotta love riding during the week  
    • Demons are good!  I always have some with too.  But I usually start with a forage minnow in blue/glow.  Another I’ve learned to keep handy is a Rattling Blade Spoon.   Can’t say I have a hard go to for sunnies.  Sometimes they hit the forage minnow anyway.  But I do normally have a tungsten jig head with plastic ready to go if a good marking fish is interested but just won’t commit.
    • Oops, you’re right Del. I have deer too and feed corn to them. Birds are fighting for perches many times throughout the day. I’ve been trying to coordinate the frenzy times With those major/minor  feeding activity tables but so far not much similarity. It gets REAL crazy at times. 
    • What is everyone's favorite crappie and sunfish jig?  I always like to a have a demon jig on at least one of my rods. I have had great luck with a white body and a purple, orange or pink head. The demon has been my go to crappie jig for many winters! I also like a red/ yellow demon for sunnies.
    • Wisconsin had a series of snowfall across the entire state this week, dropping anywhere from 6 to more than a foot of snow in many locations. With Wisconsin finally completely covered with snow, this should be one of the best weekends of the season for outdoor winter recreation.Snowmobile trails have reopened through much of central Wisconsin counties and a few southern counties. Trails across the northern half of the state were good to excellent on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Cross-country ski trails were groomed or will be by the weekend and many properties are reporting ski trail conditions are excellent or good. After several snowfalls this week, crews have been busy grooming ski trails. Many properties are reporting excellent conditions going into the weekend.Photo credit: DNRNorthern lakes are ice covered with 20-plus inches of ice. With the snowfall the lakes are heavy with snow and travel out on the ice is difficult. There have been a few diehard ice anglers out there fishing for walleye, crappie and perch with not much to show for their efforts. .
    • Careful with your spelling there, dude.  You never know who is reading.... Maybe that is why the packages seem to now all say Nyjer seed instead of niger.  😀
    • How many Deer tracks do you have around your feeders or else the squirrels are getting at it!  😉
