I just went into the FM chat room. There was no one in there most likely because it is late an most people are sleeping. I think people should start going in there when they are in the FM site. I am sure we could get some good conversations going. I am gonna start opening up the chat room every time and I think it would be fun if other people did to.

just my opinion

I never realized there was a chat room here, so I went looking for it. I never usually page that far down on the site. I agree that it would be fun to have one on one (or many people) discussions. Obviously it doesn't get visited too much because the last scheduled discussion was for November 2001 by Gullguide. I think if it was more obvious to people that it would get visited more often?? Oh well, thanks for pointing it out. Good luck to all on opener.

maybe rick should look into rearanging to put the chat link on top and more obvious. like some one said i usually never scroll down that far. it would be kind of cool to actually see someone in there when i look.
just a suggestion.-------jigglestick-------

I guess I will go to the chat room and start talking to myself, the best audience there is. grin.gif I am going to start putting myself in the room and minimize it and then check it every once and a while. If more people did this we might be able to get some chats going. I would like to know how to set it up so I can find out if anyone is online through my yahoo fiends, can anyone help? confused.gif

Im with nunzio, we should have a certain time to chat during the day or evening. Someone should come up with a good time for everyone.

Hi,
we've tried everything you are suggesting.

I have put the chat link up again on top here. We even had a separate forum for it so folks could post chat times. It ended up being more work for me than it was worth because of all the questions and complaints.

The old saying, use it or lose it applies here. I'm giving it another shot because of the interest you have shown.

I will also be upgrading the forums as soon as we have enough Product sales to pay for it. I'm looking at forums that have a friends list that you can see when they are online here and request chats.

We have to pay for it someway, so your purchase here will have benefits to you beyond getting great leading edge fishing gear.

Ok - whats going on. I try to type my name in and it won't let me type. The cursor is there blinking - but nothing works. I can click on connect, it will say I need to enter my name etc.. so I try again and still I can't type anything in.

Any ideas??

Clueless - -

I just checked out the Chat room and had a short but nice converation with a lady who likes to fish. That was fun! I will now make it a habit to drop in there to see who's around.

Rick,
I think that the chat room is starting to pick up a bit more now. On just about any given day, during the evening you can probably find a couple of people chatting. I myselfe have been frequenting it more recently becaue their are more people there. It is fun talking to other anglers from around the state. Hopefully your post on this thread will start turning some heads. Come on everyone lets get chatting!!! smile.gif

Hey Josh,

Not a big deal that you didn't see it. I did quite bad fishing actually. 4 fish in 3 hours. Thats ok because I know where the fish are sitting now.

2 people in chat now, more welcome.

Just wanted to post a warning of the chances of another addiction. Sunday night I chatted with Jimmy and FishnLady until 2 in the morning knowing I was getting up at 5 to go fisn. This chatting with other anglers in this site is great. grin.gif I really enjoyed it and I will keep going there. Hey Jimmy and FishnLady, I got skunked, I must ahve been too tired to fish properly. grin.gif Thanks for the chat.

    • If you're confined to the sleeper then your results are going to be hit or miss and your odds of a really epic day aren't very good.  You'll probably catch some fish in the sleeper but I have yet to experience a truly great day by just staying in the sleeper.     Like others have said Cookies on Red Lake is a good option.  I've stayed with him before and he moved the house for us on Saturday afternoon when we only had a handful of fish by then.  The bite didn't pick up substantially with the move but its nice to know the guy is doing everything he can to give you a good trip.   I haven't stayed with Johnny P at Red Lake Remote but I've heard nothing but good things.    I think if you explained your experience to any of those guys they'll do their very best to give you an epic day but of course they can only do so much.   Do you usually come up with a bunch of other people or by yourself?  Maybe there is a way to get you out in a more mobile set up where you can go punch a bunch of holes and go find the fish.  From my experience there really isn't a trick to fishing Red Lake its all about moving around drilling lots of holes until you get on them.   Just find a spot without anyone else around and start drilling.  
    • i'm hoping santa brings me some!!!!!!!!!!!! but i've been told i havent been all the good the past year!!!!!!!!😩
    • Plan on an archery tag again this spring.  Only Minnesota, hope to someday hunt a Merriams somewhere.
    • not sure how accurate this is, but i read once that a fish will eat its weight once every 3 days????????????
    • I was at Cabelas over the weekend and they had a sign at the fish tanks with the feeding schedule. They only feed them 3 times a week, and there are some really nice sunnies and crappies in those tanks. Made me wonder how often fish actually eat. Also gave me a great excuse for all those times I go out and get skunked.
    • As Leech said, I would contact Johnny P with Red Lake Remotes. He used to post a lot on this site and seemed to know the lake like the back of his hand. He started a few years ago with just portable houses in order to go "remote" but now has sleeper houses.  
    • try some bigger baits that rattle and glow or are really flashy. Something like a rippin rap,  chubby darter, clam time bomb or other big lures that make a lot of noise or have lots of beads or something that rattles to make noise. rip them high in the water until you call in fish and then jig less aggressively when fish come in closer.     Are you going to catch fish on them, maybe not but they will draw in fish to your area hopefully you can entice them to bite on your other rod. or once you call them in, switch to a smaller presentation.   the other thing is try to target different areas of the water column. not all walleyes feed right on the bottom. the more aggressive and bigger walleye might be right below the ice or suspended up from the bottom.
    • May be we can all chip in a buy you some. You can get qty 60 rings for $19.99 on-line!  😁   Bulk Canning Bands - Regular Mouth SKU: 1213830 In Stock  $19.99 Log in to add to your wishlist! BENEFITS OF BUYING CANNING BANDS IN BULK Never run short on canning bands again! Buy in bulk, save money and have plenty of bands on hand when you need them. Use on any standard canning jars 60 bands per pack USA made
    • Hole liners would help too. Do you use them?  I think some of that happens in all houses that sit a while with heat on. If a fan is forcing heat down from the ceiling into a marginally/uninsulated floor a ton of heat transfers. Just a guess. 
    • never injected prime rib, never seen the need when they are so good just seasoned on the outer layer...
