Mark your calendars for what has turned into one of the highlights of the hard water season!

Host: Borch

When is the event

Sat Jan 26th 2013 7:30 am

What will we be catching?

Channel Catfish with an occasional Walleye,Crappie and Rock Bass mixed in. Cat fishing through the ice has become very popular and the Horseshoe chain has become the place to be to do it.

Where is the event?

Cool Cats will be on the Horseshoe Chain of Lakes located near Richmond/Cold Spring MN. Roughly 1.5 hrs Northwest of the Twin Cites. From 94 take 23 west to Richmond and then take 22 south to the lake.

We will be fishing the Methane or "Meth" hole. There are two popular points of access. The best one to use for vehicles is the winter access.

Please monitor the thread below to discuss or ask questions as well as closer to the event to confirm current ice conditions.



What should I bring?

First and foremost, a big smile, because you will be using it a lot smile

Typically we use basic walleye gear for catching the cats. We will set up one pole with an Ice Buster bobber or equivalent and a glow red teardrop with the other pole rigged with a jigging spoon/minnow head. Lindy 1/16 oz Rattlin Flyer in glow red is favorite among the catters.

A spring bobber has proven to be helpful for the light bite days.

Also as in years past, we will be having a potluck at noon, so bring along a favorite food item to share. Hopefully we can work out frying up some catfish as well.

Bring along the whole family and stay for a couple hours or stay all day.

We will get a bunch of holes punched for those that don't have an auger. If you need some help getting set up just ask.
