Lake of the Woods FM get-together? yes/no?

Recommended Posts

There has been talk of a FM get-together
weekend on LOW for some time. Lets put it
together.
The weekend of June 14th might be a good
choice. Fishing should be good without
running all over the lake. We have an invite
from Kaz to have a cookout at his house
Saturday night. The Zipple Bay guides shore
lunch area is at our disposal for a midday
break.

Very tentative schedule..

Friday night social (possibly at Schusters)

Saturday morning meeting at the Wheelers Point Landing. To explain contests and
schedule for the day, collect for big fish
pots (the important stuff)

Shore lunch at the Z-Bay park (maybe Polish
and dogs for convenience sake or maybe the
whole fish fry thing.

Awards and cookout (my choice for fish fry)
at Kaz's place in the evening. (located near
RiverBend Resort)

Sunday??????????????

Fishing could be anywhere you wanted to go
but mostly the Gaps and Zipple Bay areas
I suppose.

If June 14th is a bust, we will shoot for
August something and deep water and reef fishing.

Let's see a show of hands here. We can work
out details along the way.

Lodging may be tough to get, the LOW Chamber
can be a help.

Please include your ability to bring a boat
and if you have room for company in your
boat (you know, someone to help pay for gas).

Check your schedules and indicate if the
weekend of June 14th fits. Post Yea or Nay

If you must vote no please do so.. the date
can be moved back into August.

I love when the reefs come alive with the big hogs in July. My favorite time of the year. August is great too, more stable weather.

Cory, now you have that monster new boat...my question is- if we're going to low how many gallons does the rum-punch tank hold???

I had been thinking about making a trip to Zippel Bay sometime this summer. What do you guys intend to fish for while you are there? Walleye , musky??

Have you decided on a weekend yet?

Thanks all,

June 14th is set for the FIRST LOW get
together.

There will hopefully be one in August too.

Please keep an eye on the LOW forum for
details

There are many Pike at Zipple, a Musky would
be rare indeed

    • tracked down some quick numbers; supposedly the heater draw at 7 amps, and that would be the main appliance to be ran at night +-1.5 hour total run time during a 8 hour sleep period; i should have plenty of power on the battery!
       
    • This got me curious, so I checked my profile and sure enough, I'm coming up on 10 years myself on 12/30.  However, over those 10 years I've posted WAY less topless selfies than Leech has!
    • ikr, Duff started some noise a while back but never happened? 😒
    • awesome thanks guys; found out my battery has 88 amp hours; I'll look into my heater, and radio, not sure what the LED lights are, i'll try to look there too;   how long do your guys usually last before in need of a genny?
    • You might be right.  The only common denominator between all of the kickers that have encountered major issues while with the Vikings is Priefer.  He has built the Special Teams unit into a Special Needs unit.  How they can under preform every year and break down at the most critical times and it not come back on Priefer is really mind boggling.  
    • Congrats whippersnapper.   When are you going to get your wings and throw a get together?👈👈☝️👍😁❤😁
    • Some radio's can be really power hungry. I'd just use a simple bluetooth speaker or some sort of standalone boom box of sorts (for example my makita radio can run for around 50 hours on a single battery). If your lights are not already switch them over to LED. Both of these are easily done to reduce current draw. If you search amazon you can also buy and install PWM led dimmers on all your lights, only turn them up as bright as needed. The great thing about PWM is it reduces your current draw unlike resistor based dimmers of past. Lastly I would take an actual reading at the battery and right where its wired (your results should be very close) when your alarm goes off. You may have a bad Co/lp alarm or the following issues that increase resistance to your alarm in turn dropping the voltage it sees: poor connections, too small of gauge wiring, excessive wire length.
    • There's nothing amusing, or even confusing as to why it happens.  It would be more confusing if outdoorsmen didn't overharvest.  Look no further than Harden's Tragedy of the Commons.       There's a near perfect correlation with the amount of free public resources and the inferior quality of those resources.  This is why reservations are largely wilderness ghettos.  It's why Red Lake collapsed.  The student loan bubble.  This is also why urban ghettos are looted every time there is a riot.  Subsidized housing, drinking water, livestock farming etc.     When people aren't responsible for the effects their actions have on the system they're impacting, those systems will fail.  But hey, keep helping the state buy up all the land and monopolize the lakes.  Maybe someday enough of that insanity will yield a different result.  
    • First off, you need to figure out you amp loading.... how many amps does your furnace take, lights, radio etc. and how long do they run. That should give you your amp hr rating. Then match your battery requirement up with the right amount of amp hours.  Not all batteries are created equal based on size. For example, a group 27 can range from 60-100 amp hrs.    Here is a good site for calculating battery requirements https://www.batterystuff.com/kb/tools/calculator-sizing-a-battery-to-a-load.html
