Metro I.C.E. Tour

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.
I am moving this thread into the Events Forum as well as the Metro Forum.. This is the smae deal that we did last year(for all those who attended). For those who didn't attend, this is in no way a contest, but rather a get together between friendly fisherman(only bragging rights on this forum are won).
It works like this: If you have a lake that you like to fish and you don't mind having a few people over for a good time, host an event. If you would rather just come to an event, by all means come!! It is a great time!
I for one am hosting an event on Clahoun. The date I origianlly had was the 5th of Jan., but heard that the date conflicted with the I.C.E. Series, so now it will be held on the 15TH OF JANUARY in front of the the boat launch on the NE side of the lake at 1pm. Just like last year we will be chasing Wally's. I also hope to see a few northern come out during the day.

EVENT #2
Will be hosted by Sportfishin.
This will be held on Jan 18th.
The place is Spring Lake Park on Minnetonka.
The time is all day. All other info on this event can be provided by Sportfishin.

If anyone wants to host an event or go give'r a post.

Yes that is correct. These are events for anybody to attend, no fees, and are based on the sole purpose of getting together to meet fellow anglers from FM & to put faces with names.

These will be non competitive events with the sole emphasis of having fun & to share our knowledge & love of the sport we all are so addicted to called "Ice Fishing."

Dreaming of "Ice"

I'm not all that good at "organizing" something.. but I would like to see an event in the Southern/Eastern metro on Prior, Spring, Bald Eagle, White Bear, Mairon, Phalen, or Elmo, etc..... Minnetonka espically is a very long ways from where I am located, and I'm sure there are numerous people who live in the St. Paul side that would be in the same situation. Just a thought...

Crawlerman: These types of events are very easy to organize. All you do is name:
1. the meeting place (lake and specific area to meet). Good directions help.
2. the time to meet
3. show up with the others who decide to attend and have fun.

It's usually added fun to bring a grill and food (ask others to bring food as well).

It's easy smile.gif

Hmm... maybe.. I'll have to wait till I get a better idea of my work schedule too. Perhaps something later in the season, say Feburary... I need to afterall do some preliminary fishing of these lakes and then decide... if anyone would have suggestions on ones in that Area that would be good... I'm thinking Spring for my top pick as it has a lot of quality sized panfish in it; Altough I've never fished it through the ice. That or Bald Eagle... hmm.. have to think on it

Crawlerman,
I would be willing to co-host an event if you'd like. I am VERY familiar with Phalen and would host an event there. I too was thinking of late February but the season closes early this year and the last weekend of the season conflicts with the URL I.C.E. event. Maybe the 8th and 9th?

Spike-- that would work; altough Panfish are of course fishable year round. (the most sought after quarry over Ice for me...) I know Phalen is known for it's pike and a few eyes though... plenty of deep water to fish if you knew the holes. I wouldn't mind pulling up a few eyes up either. Only fished Phalen from shore a few times but have had decent luck for panfish and bass in the channel during the early season.

Ok; hows this Spike...

Lake: Phalen

Date: Sat Feb 8th

Me and Spike to host.

Species: just about everything fishable...

Time: I dunno.. whenever.. think of a time to meet there Spike and we can go from that. We still have plenty of time to discuss details.

As far as food N stuff goes... I don't have a grill; some one else would have to provide it. I wouldn't mind bringing fish and batter (likely store bought or recipie for corn crumb/flour batter...) I prefer pan fried over beer batter personally; and it's easier; but someone can bring beer batter too if they wish. Perhaps we can just eat some of what we catch? Nothing better than fresh..

Crawlerman,
That sounds great! I would suggest a start time around 2pm - that would provide a few hours to chase pike and then we could swith to eye hunting near dusk. I fish the lake a couple of times a week, so we'll wait to announce the meeting place until we have a better idea of what areas are producing fish. Perhaps you could join me on an exploratory outing in late January.

Sounds like a good idea; My work schedule rotates but it's allready made. I do have the 8th off grin.gif The last weekend in January I have off is the 18-19th; perhaps we can do the scouting then. As I said before I would also like to scout some spots for crappies, perch, and gills; being my primary target during the day as we watch tip-ups. My Email address is [email protected] if you'd rather further this conservation there.

    • and a couple pretty good running backs too!!!!!!!!   bring on the Tide!!!!!!!!!!
    • not unless you can find an old lakemaster garmin compatible chip and if your garmin can indeed read it; otherwise you can get garmin's version
    • Freekying yeaa!  😃 About time. 3 3/4 of a game without as much as a field goal with two of the best receivers in the NFL would say this is a good move! 🤨
    • I actually have the opposite  Problem of keeping the ice solid. After about two weeks of fishing the same spot, The front tip-up is floating on water.  I now bank the back 3/4 of the house only To regulate the trapped air underneath.             
    • Does anyone know if you can put a Lakemaster chip in a dash mount GPS. I have a Garmin dash mount and it would be nice and handy if I could do that.   Thanks
    • Vikings Fire Offensive Coordinator John DeFilippo December 11, 2018 at 11:16 am   MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Minnesota Vikings’ offense struggled against the Seattle Seahawks on prime time television Monday evening – and it looks to be enough to cost the offensive coordinator his job.   On Tuesday, the team confirmed they have relieved John DeFilippo of his duties as offensive coordinator.   Kevin Strefanski has been elevated to interim offensive coordinator and will handle play-calling duties, the team said. The Vikings lost to the Seahawks 7-21 Monday evening, and were nearly shut out. The Vikings scored their only touchdown with 1:10 remaining in the game.  
    • oh the ice is good.....on the 2 lakes i hit. one had 10 inches the other 12!!!!!!!!
    • I just started her up and let her run a bit yesterday.  Wouldn't get out fishing until all the Holiday stuff is over in a few weeks but then the ice should be good and more snow hopefully.  Thanks for the reply over yonder! 🙂
    • What type of solution?    Not it directed at you personally but I find it amusing that by and larger hunters and fishermen are the most anti government anti regulation types yet are the first to overharvest due to lack of self control and then are the first to Beyotch when the DNR doesn’t stop it.     
    • WELL i was just up in  that country over the weekend. maybe 3-4 inches in the woods might be 2 inches of snow on the lakes!!!!!!
