Fishing mn Markers

Recommended Posts

i wanted to purpose the idea of having some kind of marker that we fishing mn'ers can put on our houses while ice fishing that way we can stop by and say hi and exchange some reports or ideas
especially out on the big lakes like lake of the woods or mille lacs
i ran into scoots today on LOW and we were just talking and i asked him about fishing mn so we put two and two together
and what do you know another fishing mn resident
does anyone else think this is a good idea because i feel that there are literally thousands of us who pay attention and are apart of these message boards it would really be nice to put some names with faces

tell me what you think or any ideas of what kind of marking we could use to tell eachother apart from any other angler

let's get a count of how many people would be up for this

I am in!

Good idea. Maybe a bumpersticker or something similar that would say FishingMinnesota.com boldly with a spot we could write our username in with permanent marker?? It is fun to run into a FMer out there, i have done it myself.

How about a small banner or flag? Something in a bright orange so it can be seen from a ways? Also how about having a designated 2 way radio channel? Maybe 6/13? 6 for F and 13 for M ? This way at all the Ice Leaders and other get togethers we know where everyones at on the radios.

I have Ice Leaders "bumper stickers"...
http://fishingminnesota.com/ubb/Forum30/HTML/003084-2.html

One of my "jobs" this week is to find a flag that will designate I.C.E. Series participants for the tournaments. I am looking for sonething bright that can be seen at a distance... that I can put FishingMinnesota.com / I.C.E. Leaders on.
I'll post you on my results.

I've got the 'Fishing Minnesota' bumper sticker on my fishhouse (on Ottertail as of yesterday). I s'pose I could add one of the 'Ice Leaders' stickers, too...

Stop in and visit...

i think a flag is a really good idea
that way we can see it from a long distance
i dont think to many people would mind paying a few bucks for something like this

i wonder what rick thinks of the idea?

I like the idea of the flag too....that way when I run out of the frosties, I can go pester other FM'ers for a bevvy, or if they run out they can pester me smile.gif

You see those flags with pro football team logos on them that hook on vehicle windows, that would also be a cool thing for a FM logo, maybe in bright chartruse?

Coach Dog - I used to fish the south central lakes around the mankato area. But I found that there are so many lakes around the metro area that I am going to go out and try my luck around here, especially since I live here smile.gif

so needless to say I am a rookie to the metro waters. But will be out often. Will be going up to Mille Lacs a few times and may venture up to LOTW.

I have been looking at getting some sort of reflective paint to paint something on my shak so people know its me.

I'm game for the flag idea. Would be a great thing to put on our shacks, little easier to remove, if needed, than a sticker

    • 501A .Going earlier than my normal B season this year. 
    • 504A for me. Taking a newbie out this year if he was drawn. Need this weather to turn around pretty quick.
    • I also picked up a couple extra trailer tilt pins in case someone walks off with mine again. I would have taken my enclosed trailer but my check engine light is on in my Suburban to and it comes up knock sensor. And they don't recommend driving it with bad knock sensor or could damage engine. Need a warmer day to tackle that as it involves removing the intake to get at the darn thing. Hope my luck improves
    • Seems like one could use chuck to make corned beef, but don't see much about it on the net...  Might be a fun experiment.
    • Dropped it off at dealer today and might be a week to get it back. Not sure you have relays with manual reverse but if anyone is looking for spares they are $5 at O Rielly parts and they have more expensive ones to but look just like the $5 ones. I bought 4 of them for spares. Im also going to ask mechanic when I pick it up if there is a way to get it out of reverse manually so if it ever happens out in the middle of the woods. 
    • corned beef is right up there but we are now getting into the season where the sales will start!!  love the ruebens too!!!  but it is one thing I never made from scratch, just store bought and cooked...  go for it bobber!!! 
    • Got drawn for the MN B season! Hope the weather cooperates.
    • Did you ever end up making corned beef Thunderlund? or anyone?The Mrs went up to cub yesterday so I had her pick up some c beef from the deli for Ruebens, holy moly they dont give that stuff away!!  I see most recipes call for brisket ( thinking maybe end up kind of stringy) but I do have several chuck roasts,  I'm thinking brining one and give it a whirl..If so how'd it turn out?
    • I use a lighter duty set on the front because they fit tighter and have better clearance. On the back I use  more aggressive v-bars. Sometimes one set isn’t enough and once I got stuck with both sets on. I’m pretty new to this too but for the most part they’ve worked  well for me.
