Where would you have one in WI? Being an old Wisconsin boy myself I would love to get involved.

I was thinking they could be held on any of the flowages,That way its a big enough body of water so youre not cramped together and with all the different depths and bottom structure, you have a good selection of fish.

icefisherman,
use the "Contact Us" link below to send your info so we can consider starting an ICE Series in WI.

GREAT IDEA!!

I have to agree! It would be great to see the ICE series expand into Wisconsin. Petenwell or Castle Rock flowages in central Wisconsin, or the Rainbow flowage in northern Wisconsin, would be great venues.

Here's my three: Chippewa Flowage, Island Chain on the Chippewa Rusk County line and Nelson Lake in Northern WI.

Chris- there is no series called "Metro Ice Series". But there were several "get togethers" last year. Matt and myself have already been talking of where for some get togethers this year.

Stay Tuned!

Chris,
We have normally about 4-5 "Metro Get Togethers" every winter. These are basically just a chance for everyone to get together and fish for day for fun and company. No cost and not as many people (although a few of them saw quite a few people smile.gif) Anyone can host a Metro Get Together, all they need to do is pick a lake, a date, and a time and post it here on FM under the Metro Forum. Last year we had one at Linwood Lake, Medicine Lake, Lake Minnetonka, Chisago Lake...help me out here smile.gif Am I missing any?
Always a fun time at the Metro Get Togethers and we will sometimes meet for breakfast or dinner too. Sometimes we catch fish, sometimes we don't, and sometimes we go out for breakfast and dinner and hardly fish at all grin.gif ...(Chisago smile.gif)

The ICE Series is a statewide contest series at some of the best ice fishing destinations. Last year we fished Lake Winnibigoshish, Mille Lacs Lake, Red Lake, and Lake of the Woods. A lot of great prizes are given out as well as a trophy for first, second and third place, and also for big fish. The ICE Series is a multi-species contest where the most weight wins (all regulations apply, both state and lake). Last year we saw some nice perch, walleye, crappies, pike, eelpout, sauger and tulibee weighed in (did I miss any?). This winter will be no exception and I plan on the ICE Series being bigger and better!

If you want to read up more about the ICE Series check out the Ice Leaders webpage...

Or else feel free to ask any questions here. (I'll see you on sunday too Chris smile.gif)

Good Fishin,

I was just curious about giving us LETS Metro guys something to do in the winter. I went to the Linwood event last year, but it was hard to tell who was who.

Shawn,
I got your e-mail and we are working on it.

Hopefully you will receive some help from a couple of the IceLeaders Pro Staff I've asked to help you.

They should be contacting you shortly.

We would like to be able to announce your Wisconsin IceLeaders Event by the end of September if possible. smile.gif

Bobberboy,
Some of the things they are looking for in a lake are:
-safe ice conditions (for driving) they are concerned about the ice on the flowages
-plowed ice roads (for ease of movement on the lake)
-close accomidations (hotels,cabins,etc)
-a good# and variety of fish
-large enough for the event
-some sort of lodge or building on the lake for the HQ is a plus.
Any help would be great

Typically from 50 to 500.

More in the 200 range for planning purposes.

Ah - that's right, I know where it is now! Hey, I'd be all up for an ICE event there, it's not toooo bad of a drive for me. What I've heard about Nelson is that it's an excellent fishery.

    • Never heard of the stuff.  English Muffin....Toasting Bread?  I was wondering if you really made French toast with round English muffins? 😵
    • just saw it yesterday in Alex..darn good stuff too!!!
    • that is so great!!!!!  You folks are raising a good son!!!!  
    • Well I couldn’t make it over there yesterday, so my son went over today after school to tell her thank you but he’s going to take his stand down. After a 30 mins conversation with her, he now gained bow hunting, shotgun hunting and turkey season next spring. She told him that he has permission as does the other gentleman and don’t worry about it. This is where it gets good. Cole went out to his stand and guess who shows up asking what he’s doing. The other “kid”. Asking why he is back out there, Cole explained to him that he talked with the land owner and sees no reason why they both can’t be out there. The guy stormed off. So I called him a while ago.....yes the first 15 mins were not some of my best moments, but I finally was able to get to the bottom of his problem. He’s never shot a deer, he’s never shot anything and only took up hunting 3 years ago. Whoever has been “coaching” him has given him some very bad information. Told him things that I’ve never even heard of. So I told him not only will we help set you up, but we will move your stands into good spots, I will hang a double set if wanted and either myself or my son would be glad to sit with you and help walk you through the first time, video tape it and even offered to let him come sit in my ground blind on my field and get him a shot a doe any night. We are all meeting tomorrow night so i can go over some maps with him and show him where I would put my stands at if I were him. I told Him instead of running my son off who could a complete asset to him, learn from him. He might be only 15 but he’s a wealth of knowledge and loves everything about hunting, not just the killing part. He just wants to be in the woods and help others. Looks like a bad situation may turn into a good one.  I hope at some point this fall I can post a picture of my son guiding this gentleman to his first archery deer. 
    • Does anyone know of a place in the Brainerd Lakes area where you can rent a wheelhouse that you're able to tow yourself? I'm not referring to renting through a resort or guide, where you're restricted to the lake and spot they put the house on. I'm looking for one I can haul around. 
    • I did a search ans it seems a shortage happens once in a while. That search came from 2013 and it was the same problem. Hope it just a temporary thing because it makes such great toast.
