My girlfriend and I will be attending this weekend. She kicks my butt whenever we go fishing(I'm always untangling her line smile.gif). This weekend will probably be no different. I have a 6-7 hour drive after work Friday, so it'll be a looong night and day. I would've liked to have gotten there a day earlier to do a little fishing and scouting around. Oh well, will have to wing it.....Fishing, fun, food, trophys, and a chance at some great prizes......Count me in!!!

I'll be there. Unfortunately, the wife isn't interested in ice fishing, so I'm flyin' solo. I do hope to hook up with some of the pro staff and pick up a few tips and hints, though.

See you all there.

That sounds great! Cold front makeing ice to be followed by a warm up, the fish should be on the bite by Saturday with that weather scenario. Temps in the 20s is very tolerable even for the not so "hardcore" fisherman. It sounds as though the bite on Winni has been doing real well as of late. Get those weigh in scales ready, get the grills going! Make room in the truck to possibly bring home some great prizes.....Here we come!!! grin.gif PS: It sounds like there'll be a lot of women and kids comeing along. So guys, this may be your chance to get the lady involved with your fishing hobby. Women like to see other women around, and as far as introducing them to ice fishing...No where better than Winni! Lots of action, few lulls in activity, and a social affair, she'll be begging you..."Hey honey, Turn that game off and let's go fishing!"...Well, we can wish for that at least. smile.gif

Rick:
Good job on the get together and the turn out, is there anything that anyone can bring as far as food condements etc? I know that this is taking off fast (ever watch the shuttle taking off??) and we all may need to kick in and help, Any ideas would help, I work for ServiceMaster of the North in Duluth and I will donate enough trash bags for the event (1 case of 45 gal trash bags)The rest goes to Denny's. Any food ideas? Pasta salads can feed many and are cheap to make so are beans and
(SOMEONE PLEASE MAKE MOYAKA!!) I cant wait ..
Let Rick know what you can bring to help, (remember Schwiegert hot dogs)
and think of the entry fee as your way of keeping you in touch with the fishing world,
and possibly winning some great prizes.

Just so most of you know.

Most of the Pro Staff (especially those that know Winnie well) are going to be there to help out those who are looking for likely fish holding spots and/or would like some help with technique.

While we are going to crown the "World's Greatest Ice Angler" the ICE Series is mainly about introducing more people, families, women, and kids to the fun aspects of being on the Leading Edge of ice fishing.

Looks like there is going to be a nice group of FMers.

Quite a few have already registered online for the event today at $10.

Remember,
you need to be registered by 3 PM Thursday or it's $15 at Denny's the day of the event.

This is a very good deal folks. We will have one of the TOP Winnie Ice fishing guides out there and available to help put you on fish.

Also looks like Denny's is going to offer a fish fry for us when we come off the lake. They'll have details on this when you come into their resort.

Click the link below and go to the ICE Series links if you're looking to add some spice and fun to your winter. Bring friends, family and kids(under 16 FREE).

    • They do some crazy things. I recall last year a grouse would follow a atv around everytime the person would drive into the birds home area.
    • Maybe, but they are only about 5 feet long fully extended. Also, mine has the side slide outs, not the front and back so there isn't much room for anything near the door. But maybe it was for something smaller over the door. I will investigate further this evening. 
    • Well, as I posted in the hummingbirds thread (and now hereby update) still hummers in Rochester and robins too.   The hummers were at the feeder this morning and three or 4 robins on the lawn.  Also had chickadees, nuthatches and a few various finches at the seed feeder.    
    • I'm pretty sure they are for the outside awning.  Go to site below.  Click on 1979 brochures.  Then click on page 07.  It shows a camper with two poles holding up an awning. That may be why the flat bottom piece.      http://www.popupcamperhistory.com/bethanyimages.html  
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Lake of the Woods water temps are steadily falling into the mid to low 50’s. This past week cold fronts and strong winds have fish schooling up and feeding heavily.

      In Minnesota, look to rocky bays and adjacent reefs in 15-22ft. of water.  A jig and minnow is all that is needed to catch a limit in a short period of time. Bottle necks between islands in the NW Angle are also worth fishing in the evenings.
       
      In Canada, the fishing has been excellent.  Crappie, walleye and perch are all schooling up and taking a jig and minnow.  With the water temperatures dropping, expect to see the muskie bite increase while trolling. 

      We will be closing October 22nd for ice in! Contact us for availability for your fall fishing trip!

      We hope to see you soon,
      Sunset Lodge
    • I was bow hunting this weekend and had 3 flush out from under my stand.  One of them came back later on and tried to get me out of the tree.  It dove at me several times.  I had to take my hat off and smack it before it finally decided to give up.  Never had a bird do that and wouldn't have guessed a grouse would have been the culprit. 
    • No, there were other poles for that.
    • Sounds like I’m right on track. I’ll just get everything I need now. Think I’ll wait till next spring for engine oil but I’ll do front and rear diffs now as well as the tranny. I’ll grease everything to that hasen’t been done for a while. For the front diff change did you need to pull the front tire off like the maual says to? Not going to lie that manual is pretty fauge.
