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.

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

    • Horns make some otherwise normal people crazy. I'm not a horn hunter myself and that is one reason why.  
    • Dang what a shame not cool at all. I agree with leech. That’s more than enough acreage for more than one hunter to hunt. If he had the guts to go talk to the neighbor lady and she was fine with it then all is good. If this “kid” ( old guy) has an issue with it then he needs to grow up It’s not his land. Not many kids even hunt anymore so the fact that he wants to is great. Let him hunt some and if it continues to be an issue then maybe just tell him to pull the plug? I’m also dealing with some crazy neighbors right now that continue to feed. The CO has been out many times and they still do the same thing tickets have been given and there’s been some talking. I hate to “ tadle” on others but when people think they have rights that others shouldn’t have then that’s where a CO may come into play. Not saying you need to do this but if he comes barging to the door and demanding your son leave then maybe something needs to change and maybe he shouldn’t be allowed there. 
    • Leech- I thought about that same thing.  I do not know the guy or the family, so unsure of what the dynamic is there.    Thanks for the responses.  We are going to head over there this evening and talk with the lady. My plan is take it down either way.  If she says he can still hunt, and boot the other guy, or even let them both hunt i dont think if the experience is going to be anything we are looking forward to dealing with.  We have 10 acres at our house he's hunting too, and going to do some more knocking on doors.  I get being protective over his "spot". It just bothers me that he would be so unwilling to allow a 15 yr old to experience what he clearly loves to do.  Life will go on.  We will be in Montana in Oct, chasing elk and mule deer. He wont be missing out!  Those bucks are roaming the river bottom we live on, maybe the ultimate revenge will be having a chance to shoot one of them on our own land we are grooming for wildlife together.
    • Dang, I just moved Duff higher on the LIKE count!  😕
    • Beisswengers Hardware in New Brighton.  Top sales of Honda Gens and excellent service. Beisswengers
    • I would get a dlb ladder stand and sit with my kid as much as I could.  Don't let the dude bully you if you have the right to be there as well.  She may not know the age of this person if he had his kid go down there and get permission and he is really doing the hunting?  
    • He has permission from the landowner, let him hunt. If the 50 year old does anything to affect his hunt that is "hunter harassment" and he should be charged. 
    • Obviously the guy has "passion" for "his" hunting spot.  I would try to meet him face to face with your son and see if you couldn't reasonably discuss it and come to an agreement.  Possibly do it at the landowners home if you want to put him in his place.  This of course first goes with how you feel this gentleman would be towards a talk.  After all it is not his land and he can't just bully his way around.  Now if you feel he is psychotic then don't bother.  I have a chunk of land that I can't hunt (even though I have permission and all the rights to hunt it) because the neighbor is crazy enough that he will possibly hunt me and I don't need that feeling of being hunted.  Hope you can work things out!  People get funny when it comes to hunting land especially when they know there is a bigger deer in the area. 
    • Can anyone suggest a good place in the North Metro to get a Honda EU2000 tuned up? Been running problem free for 6 years so I figure it's time.   Thanks in advance for the help.
    • Tough deal on this one.    You've got to decide how much fight you want to put into this.  There are also a lot of life lessons here to teach your son just depends on which one you want to focus on.    In most circumstances I would start out by going to the landowner and explaining the issues and see if you can get it resolved.  However, with it being an 85 year old woman you'll have to decide if you want to drag her into it. I'd probably at least inform her of the issue so that she's aware of what is happening on her property and what type of person is out there.  She should at least know that much as the landowner  If she wants to make it right then so be it but I wouldn't push her on it.  Just leave it as a heads up and let her know your son will move on as to not cause trouble if she doesn't seem like she's got it in her to straighten things out.
