Hey guys, I have just moved down to Minnetonka from Fargo. I have been active with the Ice Team, fishing many trap attacks. I would love to check out an Iceleaders event and I see that there is one coming up on Rush Lake. Is that located in the cities area. Thanks

Welcome to our site Brenton!

Rush lake is just west of Rush City which is about 30 - 45 minutes north of the twin cities on I35. I fished this one a couple years back and had a blast along with many others.

Welcome as well Brenton... we both joined at the same time!

I am a newbie and this is my first post but i have been reading alot of forums both here and other outdoors forums since first having internet in the mid-'90's.(I was an early contributor to a waterfowling site) thus the name, Duckerdave.

To you specifically I noticed today on this very site, that the Spicer Lions tournament has been postponed to next weekend. If you have never fished Green Lake you are a straight shot (mostly) from Tonka west to the Willmar Lakes area if you are interested in Ice fishing this direction.(under 2 hours from western 'burbs.

I moved here in 2000 from Spring Park Mn (on fishing mecca Lake Minnetonka) and lived there for 10 years. If you need advise through the ice...for Tonka let me know.

Great forum here you will find with lots of respectful users and moderators. Welcome again to you, AND ME TOO!!!!

Hey guys thanks for the welcomes. This weekend is gonna be a little cold but i will definetely be hitting the ice somewhere next weekend.

It is gonna be cold, but I'm going to go sit in my Otter Lodge and fire up the propane heaters. Only bad part will be the load & unload.

Welcome to the site and let us know how you do when you hit the ice!

    • Used the impulse mayflys today, the fish were not biting well. I ended up catching a few nice gills on the mayflys but more fish with  the demon/ waxie combo. I want to try some lighter line with the horizontal jig /impulse mayfly and see what happens. Maybe 5 years ago I moved away from winter panfish fishing. I am so glad I am back catching panfish, a very enjoyable way to pass a winter morning!
    • 13 years ago I had my heart set on a Lund, I went with an Alumacraft because I could rig it out nicer with the money I was allotted by my better half at the time..........no regrets.
    • Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future.  Also been looking at the A-crafts.  The 205 trophy.  Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now.  Good boat but its too light for big water.  Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's.  The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice.  Really impressed.  Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
    • I’ve never done anything with mine. I store it standing up and in the fall change the oil if I remember. Haven’t had any issues yet. 
    • I had problems with my 02. I found that the plug on the truck side going to the plug at the bumper was corroded. I hope that made sense I cleaned it up and put dielectric grease on it.    
    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever.
