Metro Open-Water events?

Recommended Posts

A thought occured to me; Last year during the Ice fishing season we had numerous "Metro ICE" series events-- all of which were non-competitve and free for all; being that I can't really commit neither the money nor the time for a weekly Leauge. Also, having something closer to home means it's more likely I'll be able to attend; rather than some far off place like Lake of the Woods or URL, etc. Would there be anyone perhaps interested in helping me organize something like what was done last year in the Ice season? Good lakes/rivers would be ones that provide both good shore and boat fishing oppourtunites; and we could have some sort of "base camp" at the launch for shore lunch/ meetings; etc. Any thoughts/ interest in this?

Crawlerman,

Cory and I will be doing another one on West Rush later this summer. Some people do make a whole weekend out of it. Also someone always has an open seat in there boat for those that want to go but don't have access to a boat.

Paul-- sounds good; I had a great time at the Ice thing last Dec. Yes, I also have a small boat and would have space for another who wished to attend as well. I'll keep checking this forum for more details as we get later into the season..

Crawlerman -

Good idea! A series of 'gatherings' sounds great! I was going to have a shore-tourney for kids, but none of the potential prize-sponsors I contacted got back to me, and I don't have the time or energy to pound on doors fund-raising.

A good shore-sight would be Riverside Park (Wright County) in St. Michael. Plenty of shoreline, Crow River, and a little picnic pavillion. No fee or reservations, first-come first-squat.

My fam & myself will be attending the Cat Gathering in Elk River, and some other family-friendly shore events would be great!

yeah.. I was thinking lakes/rivers in the metro area like what was done with the ICE events. Lakes like Prior, Cedar, Bald Eagle, White Bear, etc... The only one that I know well that has decent facilites atleast is Bald Eagle, but that place can get really crowded during the weekend. Prally wouldn't be too bad if one was done there before School lets out. (and only one of those cat gatherings, the Carver one is in the TC (which I plan to try to attend) but that's not till much later in the year. I'll try to make the Rush Lake thing too..)
