Scenic Tackle will also be donating tackle packages.Their Glow Devils and Angel Eyes are hot on the ice.
TSJigs will be donating Stinger Jigs.These jigs have a rigid wire stinger molded into the head.They are great through the ice on larger game fish.
Catch-n Tackle will be donating Ring-N Grubs(a personal favorite of mine smile.gif)Ring-n Tubes and Bio Bait.I think the Bio Bait is going to a hot item this season.
And of course I will be donating a Minnesota River Catfish trip and a boat ride you won't believe in a River Pro. smile.gif

It appears that the logician has talked the bunni into fishing this weekend...headcold and no job will not stop the hardwater mania.

Looking forward to meeting a few more FMr's and icin' some cats.

Lunker you out there? Are you going?

Final thought. Does anyone have an extra space in their shelter? It looks as though it's going to be a rather nice day, but the lake looks big and currently I don't have a shelter. Just worried if that wind is a kickin'. I may just run out and get something tomorrow, but just checkin' in case I don't.

I'm coming either way.

I plan on having an extra shelter out there. So if I have no problems w/ the permanent I will have extra space if need be.

I too will more than likely have an extra house along. Or at least an extra seat in the house.

A great time out on the Horseshoe Chain today for the Cool Cats Get Together. The wind made things interesting and for those of us who got there early the bite was pretty good. A lot of cats on the LX-3 and quite a few were suspended 10-12 feet off the bottom in numerous occations. Here are a few pictures of some cats caught today...

It was nice to put some faces to a few more names and to ice a few of those hard fighting cats! Red glow spoons tipped with the upper half of a minnow was how I got all my cats today. They were light biters and some bites even went undetected. If you get the chance to ice a few cats then give it a try. They are a blast!

Good job Dennis! Awesome event!

Good Fishin,
Matt Johnson

Hey! That was FUN! smile.gif
I want to thank every one who came and made it a such good time.Met a bunch of old faces and made some new friends,and caught a few cats.Could'nt have been a better time for me.(of course some one could have turned that wind down just a notch!)

The morining bite was decent allthough they were biting VERY light.Almost undectible.A slight slack in the line was all the give away that the cats would give me.My Rock-n-Reel helped me pick up two of the cats I caught.The rod tip just rose a fraction of an inch then I would slam the little puss and the fight was on!Oooh I just love catching those whiskered devils!

Here is a few more pics

I had a excellent time at cool cats, I met alot of new people that have the desire of fishing like I do. We managed a few cats, the bite was tough I had to downsize to 4lb and ultralight gear to get them to go.
A strong thanks to Dennis you put on a spectacular event, the food and fried cats were top notch. Also wanted to say thanks to all sponsors and people who donated products you are appreciated by all. And a big Thumbs up to T-Bone I can't wait to try my new tub mount Rock-n-Reel.

If anyone wants to try cats again in the future shoot me a email and I would be more than willing to go out with you.

  • Your Responses - Share & Have Fun :)

    • I think 2 out of 3 actually gets them in for sure.  Washington, Eagles, and Carolina are the next 3 teams and they are all in worse shape then we are.  Washington is on their 4th QB, Eagles looks to be without Wentz against the Rams this week, and Carolina has lost the last 5 in a row and has to face the Saints 2 out of the next 3 weeks.    No matter what there is going to be a lousy team in the 6th seed.       
    • Well even if the Vikings happen to sneak thru the back door into the playoffs, there are 20 other teams that would be happy to be in that spot.     And who knows, anything can happen when you get into the tournament. AND NO I'm not drinking purple Kool aid.  Yet!!
    • The Vikes are a dumpster fire right now for sure!    Glad they ditched Flippo, that was a failed experiment. Really hoping they get rid of Priefer soon, too, as our special teams have been far from special for the last few years.    They don't deserve to make the playoffs at this point, but if they win out, they will make it.  Will this move propel them to make a run if they do make it?  Anything is possible, but we all know what happens to the Vikes in big-time games. So, I'm not gonna hold my breath!     
    • A way to kill the prion. As far as I know, it survives indefinitely. If we can kill it, we actually have a chance of wiping it off the face of the earth.  Until then, it's a winless battle, IMO.    As far as your last comment, not sure why that was brought up if you weren't directing it at me, or at least think I fit this generalization... Not sure where in any post that I have ever made, you'd get the slightest idea that I was the type of person you describe. While I am for limited govt, and reeling in some rules and regulations, I am overall an adamant supporter of most of our fish and game laws. When it comes to what is currently taking place to "control" CWD, I don't think it's working, and I think other avenues need to be explored in more detail. I've stated that I'm pretty fluid on my opinion on CWD, so part of me sees what is taking place as maybe being necessary, but, seeing the end results thus far, it appears to not be working.     
    • Only 10 years? Seems like much more.......😉😁😄
    • Sounds pretty friggin awesome to me. Still, for the couple hundred that it costs spraying is definitely worth it
    • I would bet the first time you seen it the OH Ship factor came to mind.
    • Thanks all for the feedback. The very first time I visited Upper Red - it was with Johnny P and he was awesome.  However he was not out on his own like he is now.  I've followed him over the years and am impressed with his  new setup.....probably time to give him another shot with his new outfit. After the folks that Johnny was with sold their houses to Beacon Harbor...I just followed the houses and have been using them.  Super nice people.  Always willing to offer some tips as well as move the house whenever I ask. The reason I think Upper Red and Beacon Harbor appeals to me is that when I fly in (from Utah), I can rent my car - pick up groceries - and drive out to the house.  I only have to pay for the house rental.  Other places I've looked at on LOTW pretty much have you coming in each night...so you pay for a day house and you pay for lodging at night. Going with others - where they take you out to your hut - I guess I just need to figure out how to pack things better so I don't feel like I am an inconvenience.     When I do come up - its usually by myself.  I enjoy the solitude.  4-5 days in a house in almost total silence.  Bliss.  However there have been times when I have brought a friend or last year I brought my son for his first trip.  He will be coming again with me this year. I guess another part would be expenses.  Depending on the flights available...I'm spending $600-$900 just on travel to get there.  So that takes a bit of my budget and forces me to look for the most cost effective options.  Double that if I bring my son. Maybe I'll skip next year and be back in 2020....I'll save my allowance and have a bit more to put towards Johnny or even a different lake.   Thanks Rundrave, I'll try the bigger options to draw them in.  I guess I am not use to using the larger baits just because of the way I am use to ice fishing.  I have the tackle....just need to be confident enough to give them a try!   I do have electronics...if I see fish I can usually catch them.  I agree - Its most likely location and no fish rather than not being able to catch the fish that are there.   Because I fly in and have to fit everything in my bag - I usually don't pack my outdoor gear (parka, bibs, boots, etc.).  But a few years ago I packed an extra bag with all that and then spent a day out of the house and hired a guide to take me out.  It was Brian "Bro".  And it was awesome.   I guess maybe I just need to change my frame of mind.  Plan better with being able to bring my gear, get more mobile, explore other options.   I loved my experience with Johnny.  I'll look up Cookie as well.   Thanks again for all the feedback - truly appreciated. If any of you will be on the lake the 27-31....feel free to stop by and say hello!
    • Well yesterday marks 10 years of craziness on this web page for me.  The time has gone by fast and I have met a lot of great folks along the way. I tried to do a slide show but I’m just not that good on that stuff so here is a long group of pictures of just some of the folks I have met and enjoyed fishing, GTG's and sledding with from this site. There were many more met at GTG’s and other fishing and sledding trips but I just didn’t get pictures of them all. 🙁 Some I met just for one outing and others I have done many trips with over the years. I joined to mainly “Leech” fishing and hunting ideas and spots off all you folks but instead I met and had great times with a lot of you.  Meeting and getting out in the Outdoors with folks is what this site should really be about along with sharing ideas.  Here’s to the next 10 years and all the adventures to come! 🙂 Leech~~ Matts.bmp J's fish.bmp
