Obviously you do not need to stay at these peticular locations in order to participate, but this is probably where the Sat. night feedbag will be located smile.gif and also where all of your fellow fisherpeople will be staying grin.gif

Again, As soon as Gullguide settles his ISP issues he will confirm this smile.gif

Thanks for that info P,
There will also be room available for camping in my front yard, for the event
on the big "V". smile.gif HooDoo point, is just a short boat ride down the bay, from my
place.

I have room for at least six tents and dock space for six as well. If you need to save a few bucks, or just want to be close to the guideman, you can send me an e-mail and I'll save you a spot. smile.gif

Guideman, I figured with your 6 spots and possibly a few spots in your neighbors yard that we would need to reserve only a couple of spots at the campground. We would all love to be as close to you as possible, maybe some of that luck will rub off, so let me know how many you can fit. grin.gif I have also stayed several times at the little ma and pa motel on the Vermilion river? just south of Sudan State Park. I'm sure that she would love to have some of us Southern Boys! smile.gif

Well, she might balk when she sees fishhead and some of the other fellas grin.gif

Let me know how many you think you can accomodate and what you think that we should do with the rest.

I have room for at least 6 in the yard and at the dock. I'm sure we can fit a few more tents, but the dock space is limited. HooDoo point is just a short
boat ride from my place (about 4 miles)
thats a short ride on Vermilion. smile.gif

I have already had one reservation for the weekend, if you plan on staying at my place, please let me know, so we can make sure we have enough room for all of you. smile.gif

I just found out that the DNR is in the process of switching over to another company to handle there reservations. Beginning in January the Connection will no longer be handling them. Not sure who the new company will be, but I do know you will now be able to do it online. When the info becomes available we will get it out to you.

Guideman, I am fishing with fishhead, so I assume I am welcome to spend the night at your place, but if for some reason that isn't going to work out please let me know.

Hey Guys,

Just bringing this back up and reminding all that are planning on fishing this event that you will need to call HooDoo point on Fri. 3/1 first thing in order to reserve your campsite. The weekend of the L.E.T.S series is also the Muskie opener so I'm sure campsites will be at a premium.

Guideman,
Do you have room for another tent in your yard on 5/31 - 6/1? If so, can you save a spot for Bob & Andy? If your docks are full, is there a place to pull up on shore, or what do you recommend?
Thanks.

Gull,

He's not a FM member. Noah J. You have us listed under the "current" roster.

I can't wait to get out and fish and meet all of you. This will be a blast. Heck with the competition, it's 4 weekends of fishing trips!!!

Hey Guys,
Unless you have really big tents, we can make room for all of you. smile.gif
Bring a power strip for your electrical
hook ups and bumpers for your boat.
Anybody that can bring firewood, please do so. See ya in 67 days. smile.gif

Guideman, Wondering if you have room for another tent? If not I have already reserved a spot at HooDoo point, but it sounds like everyone is planning on staying in your yard. Also, do you have space to park all of the trucks/trailers?

    • Good luck on your hunt, let us know how you do!
    • I have another weekend in me to fish and fight the winds and weather and then the boat will be done for the year.  Guess it is that time of the season but would really love to get another couple outings in but such is life! 
    • who uses flashers now days haha; I'm a helix convert now too, i was hesitant at first as the Lowrance had a LCD screen a few years ago for ice fishing but the lag was unusable, but hbird figured it out. Mapping, flasher screen if wanted, and sonar all in one, its like a smartphone; everything in one.   also, I have not had any interference issues with others using the helix, especially with all of hte chirp setttings
    • Looks like a good time 
    • I love my Helix unit also, and GPS has been a game changer for me. No more fumbling with my phone in the cold with apps eating my battery and trying to keep it out of the elements.    I miss the simplicity of my Marcum VX-1 but after getting my Helix dialed in I have no complaints.
    • SD resident opener was a wet one. Saturday I didn't go out. Sunday morning woke up with 4.5" inches of snow at my place a few miles south of Sioux Falls. Never would I have imagined we would be able to hunt in snow this early! The other odd part is that none of the weather people even hinted at any accumulation or even predicted any chance of precip. It literally just came out of nowhere.   Yesterday I hunted the entire day from noon to sundown and was fortunate enough to still have some snow stick around in areas.. My only summary is swamp country. I wore the wrong boots, wrong pants etc. Should have just wore waders would have been able access things better. My biggest mistake was not going far enough west and not far enough north. But there is a ton of public land where I headed and I hadn't been able to scout that way yet this year. Everything that looked walkable was wet it didnt matter how high or low it was. If it looked good at knee level it very likely had ankle high standing water under it. Ditches were full of water, some roads were underwater it was just wet everywhere and I don't see any signs of any harvesting starting any time soon. The water just made things difficult to walk as some areas I am familiar with. I could walk one side and work it good, but then get land locked because of water and have no way of getting to the other sides and ended up back tracking and walking a lot of same areas twice  which usually isnt productive.   I only managed 1 bird all day. I missed 1 bird my first walk probably at 12:01pm right after getting out of the truck. Just was slow to get the gun up and was way behind it. Typically early season lull, I think I just stared at the bird before I even realized I should be trying to shoot it. I downed another bird early afternoon and I knew it wasn't hit hard. Made a good mark on it and then my dog got a good track and pinned it down. As I went to grab it with my hand the dog released and the bird took off like a bat out of hell and we never were able to recover it because of all of the water. As soon as I put my hand on it, it just exploded and was gone. Was just an odd scenario.   Saw a few other hens but otherwise a very very slow day. I had spotted a bunch of birds coming out of some CRP earlier in the day that headed for corn. I came back an hour before sundown and hunkered down hopefully to get some pokes at them during the golden hour and they never showed up. I know the birds are around but all the crops in makes it difficult to hunt during the day.   I dont know what to suggest for people coming for the big opener this weekend. Its going to be difficult with so many crops in. I would say anywhere north of HWY 14 should be a little drier in areas but they have still seen some moisture the last couple weeks. Up near Brown county they are basically in a drought and down in the south eastern part of the state we are breaking yearly precipitation records. Harvest is off to a slow start all over. I know this weekend is the big opener everyone gets fired up for but if it were me I would be coming back for late season hunts and skip the circus this weekend.   I wont be hitting it hard any time soon will probably just stick to some sundown hunts closer to home for now. I have some gopro footage I need to get edited from yesterday got alot of good stuff on video including the bird that got away.   Good luck to those heading out this weekend!
    • I'd like to see how the Helix handles interference.   Interference was the reason I went from my Interphase Video to a flasher. Currently using HBird Ice 45 and MarCum LX5.
    • I put all the boats put away,  subsequently the rain stopped.  I'll take that and finish pulling the dock in.
    • Posting.  Cuz I can’t sleep worth a dump.  Gonna be a MEA yahoo for most the rest of the week.  I’ve heard good reports from the friends that are already out there. They took the whole week so I’m driving myself out Tuesday night.     Just getting the the back of the truck filled with dekes got me too revved up.  Gonna be hard packing anything else besides waders, layout blind, guns and shells!  Who needs food and more than one change of clothes for 5 days anyway?!
    • I was ALMOST headed to Ely as well but opted to stick to “productive” pursuits at home, figuring I probably missed the October window this year.  That only lasted a day though before I headed west.   It looked really cool though.  Quiet too I bet.
