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.

    • that looks slick but probably pretty spendy if you need to use the refillable cylinder. I wonder if coleman would work?  I just watched a different video where the one pounders are filled while using a small curved forceps to vent while filling. Went to garage and filled 3 that way. Worked dandy. Nothing has to be chilled. 
    • The one thing I liked on my Elite-5 was that when a fish was about to bite the return would turn very red. I don' tget that with the Showdown. Bit it does get a darker black.
    • did you just keep it square and cut a slot through it? any idea which one? seems like a bunch of options; https://www.homedepot.com/b/Building-Materials-Glass-Plastic-Sheets/LEXAN/N-5yc1vZbrdgZ5tg   i see 11x14" sheets for $8 a piece, but they only have a .093" thickness  
    • Chip is on the list, but will wait to see how good the included mapping is. Making my own will be great as there are no detailed maps for a lot of water I fish.   I may have triggered someone here with that link. 2 more sold since my last post. Seller also has the 5 for a good price. My eyes aint getting any younger though! 
    • I got an old  10lb'er on craiglist  for $10 a few years ago, got it re-certified at a local propane co-op and never looked back.  I love it.   Has anyone used this, if so how do you like it: Flame King Refillable 1 LB Empty Propane Cylinder Tank  with Refill Kit that looks like it would be ideal. 
    • I'm sure you included that link for a reason, so I'll go ahead and say it...you got a crazy good deal on that Helix 7!   It's going to take a little getting used to compared to the Vex, but you're really going to enjoy it.  Assuming you already have a Lakemaster Chip for it, or are getting one?
    • I’ve had this same issue myself for years. I like using a hose to a bigger tank but the 20lber is impractical unless able to drive out. I’ve searched for the 5lb and can find them easily ( Cabela’s, Fleet Farm). But the price will kill a guy. I can buy 2 maybe 3 20lb cylinders for the price of one 5lb. My solution, just continue to buy and use 1lb. Sams club is by far the cheapest at $12.50 (ish) for a 4 pack. I can usually get by on about 1 cylinder per 2 outings on average. Takes 4-6 4 packs per season for Me. Which yes is a lot compared to just refilling them but “convince” is more appealing then the cost IMO.
    • I used lexan... thought about using plexiglass but plexi and cold don't mixed when you have little ones around. I can stand on these and I am 275#
    • anyone ever cut some out of clear plexiglass for their hole covers with a gap for your line for rattle reels/bobber rods? i wouldnt think they would have to be round to fit exactly in the hole,  just a square to protect from falling objects would work? $17+/cover seems steep from the store
    • I needed something newer in the boat so I got a helix ice 7 coming tomorrow and will be wet by Friday.  I already have a vex 8,18, and 20 so it better blow my socks off! The 8's days might be numbered.. The ability to make your own lake maps really appealed to me as I like more out of the way places. I ice fished so much last year the noise of the vex started to wear on me. Terrible problem right? haha  I needed another good reason to get out in the boat more too..    Nobody had them in town nearby so I shopped price and who could get it to me asap. Decided yesterday to do this and "needed" it by tomorrow.  This seller offered both price and speed. Helix ice 7 549.00 shipped
