Womens GTG

Recommended Posts

Hey Ladies

yes we are still on for the 1st Annual FM Womens GTG at Appledoorns Resort on June 13, 14 and 15th.

Exciting news grin Appledoorns now has a pontoon for rent and I'm checking to see if its available for Sat. night. Will be the same cost as the launch. I also was up fishing Mill Lacs last week for 3 days and have some great spots not too far from the resort. - Fishies here we come - shocked

I have to get to work but will post info as I get it and we'll take a head count soon and any other prep and ideas.

OK - we need to make some rental decisions for fishing. The options are:

1 - do the launch Sat morning 8-12 - $30 ea.

2 - Rent the pontoon for either Sat am or Sat pm - $30. ea. ( for 4 hrs)

3 - rent their fishing boat for a whole day - $30. ea. ( this option would give us 2 boats, with Barbs boat, for all of Sat. with 3 to a boat.)

I need to let Paul know asap, so everyone chime in and let me know what you're thinking.

My vote is # 3 - my second vote would be the pontoon.

Ladies,

Do you have room for one more? I have my own tent (3 room), misc. camping accessories, and a `93 Alumacraft Competitor CS170 with a 65hp Johnson, and a trolling motor 9(if I get the boat back from the repair shop by then).

Cool!!!!

I work in Cambridge, so I can leave from there early Friday.

I have 4 seats in my boat. I have only fished Mille Lacs one time - without much luck. If anyone has a depthfinder with some waypoints stored, that would be very helpful.

I will plan on bringing my tent, and if anyone needs a place to sleep they are welcome to crash there. I have the camp stove, lantern, pie irons, cookware, including a cast dutch oven.

Has there been an approximate headcount? I make awesome cinnamon rolls in the dutch oven!!

Char you are more than welcome.

I'm going to let paul know tomorrow that we will rent the fishing boat for the day.

I have some great spots on my GPS, and trolling routs, we should have no problem getting on some fish!

As long as there will be 2 boats there, how about doing the launch Sat am, and then use our 2 boats for the rest of the time?

I'm new here - but with only seven people, the launch would be a good way for us to be together and get to know each other.

I'm game for whatever.

Now it is official that I cant make it this summer but I am not going to be bummed about it. I will just change my plans, Maybe for January and take my hubby ice fishing laugh. I have to laugh everytime i say that, he's lived in FL all his life and has NEVER seen a frozen lake. I bet if I take him up there in Jan he will never leave the hotel. Maybe I should leave him home confused???

DeeDee, that is too bad!! You'll just have to come up and ice fish then! Whenever you can get up north, I'm looking forward to meeting you and your family. You're one cool lady.

BTW, is that you or your daughter in your avatar??

I love the idea of being on a launch together. I am able to take Friday off of work so I will be heading up in the morning. I will be bringing my small tent, and whatever else I have. Again, I can not wait.

Hope laugh

Tami - Your right, I should make him go. The only time he has seen anything was 1 weekend he and his friends drove to TN and they had a whopping 1/8 inch of snow.

Nothing more precious then watching the eyes of a person that has never been on hard water the first time they are driven across. grin

LOL It will be interesting. My first memory of my first time driving on a lake, my brother tied an old car hood to our car and pulled us around the lake. It was so fun.

    • Fishing a mid lake Hump that came up to 45ft. Caught most of the fish between 50-61. We did catch some on the top of the hump in the evening. 
    • How deep were the trout running?  We heard ultra deep on Crow to 30 ft.  The 30 ft number came from people actually catching them.   Thanks for the pics!  I like the fly rod smallie.
    • try the raid spray on grass at bottom. 
    • Here are some pictures from this years trip!
    • How do you keep ants off your feeders, especially hummingbird and oriole feeders? I've tried Toro and Raid sprays on the post but it seeks the birds don't like that smell either and i don't see many for a while. Has anyone else experienced that? Any good ideas?
    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
