I understand SlabFest is fast approaching? February 24th, on Upper Red Lake? I thought there was a post on this, but I can't seem to find it, just the post about lodging. Come on Chris, lets see that fancy poster you've got for this years event!!! grin.gif

I'm looking forward to it this year. I was there last year, but never made it over to the "official" get together area. It would be nice to meet some more fellow FM'rs and hopefuly round up some Crappie's too! It looks like we'll have good ice this year anyways...

I wanted to make sure it's still scheduled for the 24th, so I can get off work that weekend.

Talk to ya'll later...

CML,

It is still a go. Rendezvous point will again be Hansons shack out of Rogers. I'm sure Chris will post more details in the coming days.


The Rendezvous point is a bit up in the air right now. Chris will post more details as we get closer but there are a few scouoting trips planned before now and then and we may move it closer to where the crappies are going to hopefully get people on a good bite.

But like Paul said details will be posted in the next week or so.

I'm being a little bit delinquent with details but I'll know much more after this weekend's trip. I haven't been up to Red in a month so I have to feel it out again. I'll be up there this weekend fishing and Borch & I will be up there next weekend fishing to try and find some "areas" that would be good to fish for the fest.

My gut is telling me we'll have a meeting place out of Hillman's Rd somewhere. Although my shack is at Rogers and I have no problem with people camping around me.

Stay tuned! The gathering is a go but it is definitely an "informal" gathering.

I'll be up there that weekend and may join in the festivities if it works out. I am coming up with a few of my friends and bringing my house and another wheel house. Maybe we'll se you guys there once we know more.

Mr. Hanson, I certainly approve your program! I was up for last year's Slabfest, and my experience was the fishing along the North Shore seemed far better than along the South Shore... I always enjoy the friendly hospitality of the good folks at Roger's Campground, but if we're gonna be fishing I'd rather start off the Hillman Road, a few miles south of 'The Humps'...

A 'Portable Shelter City' somewhere in that area over the weekend would make for a memorable occasion, and with only a single road fee.

Good hunting, during the next two weekends, and I look forward to reading your final reports.

My objective is to definitely not have people paying 2 road fees again this year. I can blame that on Jonny-P I think. smile.gif But when Jon says his dad has got a spot that should have crappies, you have to go!

I'm also going to plan on being on the ice fishing much earlier this year too, probably noon if not 11am. With weather permitting, our little portable city can just move around and relay info to each other.

I will have my gas grill with so we'll be able to fish and eat & drink at the same time.

It'll be a good time for sure!

Chris,

I'll likely be out there even earlier than that trying to pinpoint location. I'll have my wife and maybe a couple of others along. We are used to putting in a pretty full day and have had good success thoughout the day in the past. I'll make sure the pack the 2 way radios along. I'm sure we'll have some general locations from the scouting trips before then.

    • Yes, its a 110v motor. I would've preferred 12v also but not a big deal since all my 110v outlets can be fed from an inverter so they are powered whether the generator is running or not. I think what you mentioned with the single shaft between them will be the ticket. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
    • When I was a kid, we came across a small flock of pigeons along a railroad track while grouse hunting. Shot three and my mom put them in a crockpot with other ingredients and, although I prefer grouse, they weren’t bad. 
    • You should get the 30 amp power cord if you don't have one already. You can use the 30 amp power cord adapter(30 amp female to 15 amp male) for home use. Otherwise when at the campground plug the 30 amp power cord into the 30 amp receptacle.  Now your set for any situation.     Your 20 amp receptacle is protecting the wire from receptacle to breaker panel. Besides running the AC, your running a refrigerator, 110v receptacles, and convertor.  A 16 gauge extension cord is no good.  
    • I had a contractor do my garage floor.  Here is the work order and quoted amount.   Work To Be Done:
      *Epoxy concrete garage floor. (784sq.ft.)
      -­‐Shot blast surface of floor.  (Work  Shop area) -­‐Light acid wash over existing floor, let dry over night.
      -­‐Apply primer coat of commercial grade epoxy. (4mil 650 Armor seal)
      -­‐Apply flakes to primer coat, 100% coverage. (4mil)
      -­‐Shop Vac. Up flakes that didn’t adhere to the floor. (Colors will be gray and red in color)
      -­‐Apply coat of clear commercial grade epoxy.  (4mil)
      -­‐Final coat of Armor seal 650-­‐sealer coat. (2mil)
      -­‐Cure time-­‐ 24 hours for foot traffic and 72 hours for vehicle traffic before use.
      Total Cost: $3,400
    • I did see Menard's had the 0 Degree when I was in there last night.  Not sure what kind of tip connection you may have though?  A last resort if you have a Dremel tool is to try and auger it out with one of their metal tips?  But that may be a long-many Beer day! 🤤
    • I feel like if the power washer works, it's going to be the easiest and most fun way of removing that stuff.     $7 on Amazon.

    • its a ice castle ac unit; i believe the running watts are 1200-1400; nothing else would be running off this outlet; and i believe i purchased a 12guage cord to keep it plugged in to maintain the deep cycle battery and to provide power.   this also raises another question then... am I ok using a standard (16 guage perhaps?) extension cord to connect to the power source at campsites? If not, I should probably replace this...
    • Please don't do this! I have no problem running my camper ac off a 20 amp outlet!
    • You can but it would be much easier if you had some help. Biggest thing is to open the clamps up so it can sit on the boat quicker and give your arms a break.  I swapped out an 18HP for a 35HP and it was like trying to carry a 100lb sack of potatoes. Got it done but heavy. Today I would not even think of doing it myself but back then I was a little more hard headed. I am also assuming its a tiller with no controls to hook up. I would guess it will be around 125lbs according to Yamahas site.
