LETS Big Pine Event

Recommended Posts

Guest

Looking to get some kind of head count, i.e. commitment from anyone that is interested in staying in a cabin or condo for this event.

Okay,
I just got done talking with Mike at Golden Eagle on Big Pine. The Cabins and Condos that they have are rented by the week. As late in the season as we are going he normally rents them out for a 3 day minimum. Because of the size of our group he is willing to go only 2 days but he needs to charge a little more because of the cost involved in turning them over to be used again. He is a really nice guy and seems more than interested in accomodating us.

Here's the bottom line deal.

Whether camping or staying indoors everyone will have dockage on Big Pine. He has a very nice access that we can launch on and space down by the docks for the weigh-in.

If you want to stay in one of the cabins it will be $18 per night per person. There will be no other charges. Anyone that wants to can also reserve a campsite and still have full use of all the facilies. Again this is included in your campground fee.

Me personally, I think I'll be checking into one of the cabins. When we stayed at Leech last year it was like $25 a person to camp for the two days. I think I will pony up $11 more and do it in style

What do you guys think? Please respond so that I can let him know what we need

For $18 per guy per nite, I would put us into a cabin. Count Dan P. and Eric S. in the reservation total. Be sure to let us know if you need us to do anything more (reservations, deposit, etc.). Thanks!

First of all I'm sorry that it has taken me so long to get back to everyone on this. After many phone calls, e-mails etc. I was not able to get us into Golden Eagle. Things just didn't work out.

Thanks to Jungle Shores Resort on Big Pine we have a total of 3 cabins locked up for that weekend. The five teams that replied to my original message:

Gullguide/Toad
Fishhead/Grabs
Dan P/Eric S
BFJ/MH
Clueless and Friends

are all taken care of. Two teams to a cabin.

Could someone from each team send me a check for $25. This is to cover the deposit and will go towards the cost of the cabin. Total cost worked out to $22 per man/per night. This allowed us to ensure that everyone was assured of a bed, not the floor grin.gif

I have attached a link to the address and phone number.

Guideman,

There are not that far apart, so I don't think it really matters. I can tell you that Golden Eagle hasn't exactly bent over backwards to make us feel welcome. Not sure how he's going to feel about doing a weigh-in there if only half of the group is staying there. He told me to call him a few weeks before we get up there and "we'll see how things stand then."

Paul, just for the record, my partner and I are not needing lodging for Big Pine. We'll commute or camp. Sounds like there's too many issues with the resort owners smile.gif

CD,

No issues really, Just them looking after their interests and me looking after ours. Sometimes they're not compatible smile.gif

    • Used the impulse mayflys today, the fish were not biting well. I ended up catching a few nice gills on the mayflys but more fish with  the demon/ waxie combo. I want to try some lighter line with the horizontal jig /impulse mayfly and see what happens. Maybe 5 years ago I moved away from winter panfish fishing. I am so glad I am back catching panfish, a very enjoyable way to pass a winter morning!
    • 13 years ago I had my heart set on a Lund, I went with an Alumacraft because I could rig it out nicer with the money I was allotted by my better half at the time..........no regrets.
    • Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future.  Also been looking at the A-crafts.  The 205 trophy.  Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now.  Good boat but its too light for big water.  Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's.  The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice.  Really impressed.  Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
    • I’ve never done anything with mine. I store it standing up and in the fall change the oil if I remember. Haven’t had any issues yet. 
    • I had problems with my 02. I found that the plug on the truck side going to the plug at the bumper was corroded. I hope that made sense I cleaned it up and put dielectric grease on it.    
    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever.
