program ideas?

Recommended Posts

I am getting bored with winter already and would like to get some ideas from the forum residents about what would be a good program to present at a mid-winter meeting of a fishing league. This is our 17th year of fishing league and every year members complain about nothing to do in the winter. A good program or speaker would help eliminate the mid-winter doldrums and arouse some enthusiam from our members. thanks in advance

How about something on the use of a GPS? That seems like a common question.

Topic: I finally got an H2O...now what do I do with the thing?

Waypoints and icons

Trails

POI (Food)

Find feature (closest bar)

Navigating

Lake chips (what lakes are mapped)

Etc.....

Vermillion guide Cliff Wagenbach does a great walleye presentation. I've seen it a couple of times. You can find him on FM on the Vermillion Forum.

Hi Eelpout, How many members are in your club? A great mid-winter seminar topic would be "spring fishing tactics". It is something that most anglers anticipate, it is when anglers spend the most time on the water, and usually is when the fish tend to the most aggressive. It is a topic that can be presented well and most folks will find it entertaining. Where would you guys be meeting for the seminar? I might be able to help you get a presenter lined up. Email me with the details if you would like.

i attended a seminar put on by Matt Straw the editor of In Fisherman. He spoke about perch and walleye tactics throught the ice but im sure with the knowledge he has it would be no problem for him or someone else he is associated with to come up with something that your group would be interested in.

Above was mentioned about Ted Takasaki. A great guy. The first time I met Ted, I was having breakfast before heading out to Little Bay de Noc. I said hi to him as I knew who he was and we ended up talking about dang near every strategy and lure used on the Noc and also exchanged some coords of different locations working for us. Lot of guys think the pros won't take the time to chat to the ave joe, but that's far from the truth. But I tell ya. Ted and I have stayed in touch since then and is always willing to answer questions or provide new information. Great guy.

    • Lots of reality here.   Seriously, if we truly want to wipe out CWD, all deer/elk farms need to be wiped out, all natural deer scents need to be banned and taken out of production and every single deer/elk anywhere near a positive CWD infected area needs to be wiped out. Every last one of them! And then, all deer that are found in these areas for at least 10 years need to be destroyed.    Is this a sacrifice the state is willing to make? Not a chance! So we fall to the only other option, we adapt and live with it. 
    • It's always fun to rig up your own custom stuff then paying a bunch of money for things that may not work as well.  Looks like it should do the trick for you!  🙂
    • Dude, do you know how to use the emoticons?  It's always good to use one of these when making a Joke!  🙂 😀 😅 😂  😉
    • All deer in SE MN need to be wiped out.  90% herd reduction isn't going to stop the disease.  It is wreckless and stupid to do any less.  The whole state herd is going to go in the toilet if the SE guys don't get on the triggers and get their situation under control.  This talk of us vs the deer farms is a stupid smokescreen designed to try to take the focus off private land owners that don't want to cooperate with the mitigation plan.       Anything less will set the stage for CWD to roll hard to the north and get into the big woods where there will be zero chance of ever finding every deer.   
    • Gettin er done.    I have to take the "T" that the transducer pipe goes through to work so I can open the ID so the pipe can slide freely. 
    • I have a couple Garmin units for my boat. I'm going to also use one for ice fishing. Got it powered up and started playing with the colors schemes I'd like to use. The only one I like so far is with a blue background. But what I found that I like better is the black background the humminbird uses. Maybe Garmin could do an update to add a black mode. Lol. 
    • How do you keep those solid whole covers from freezing over the hole?
    • The ant moat idea seems interesting.  Go to a second had store or a Goodwill type of place and see if you can find a Bundt pan.  Use that and see how things work out.  
    • Could you be a little more specific on this cocktail timing deal? Size matters! 😏  
    • I have been doing whole prime rib on a weber grill since I was 20 years old and they cost 2.99 lb at the long ago defunct Country Club Market in St. Paul. I put the coals on each side for indirect heat and add salt and pepper and garlic. For the garlic I put the fat side up and take a knife and put holes into the fat down to meat. In each hole I put a garlic clove. I don't add any pellets or wood chips for smoke. I just want to taste that beef cooked in owns fat with a few spices but go ahead and add some smoke to it if that is what you want.
