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.

    • Yep, it was good again.
    • Do they all have the same issues?  If they do, then probably not the roku, although rebooting them by unplugging the power for a minute or so might be worth a try, if you haven't already done so. 
    • I do not have a Chromecast.  I will try the Comcast fix first then work my way to the hardware.  I have two roku streaming stick + and one roku streaming stick.
    • I have my Garmin Astro 360 that works well enough along with dog tracking.   I have used my smart phone on a large loop walk through private and tax forfeited land.   The accuracy was pretty darn good.   Superimpose over satellite imagery on a generic mapping program and you can see right where you are and set course around areas you want to avoid.   Battery drain is pretty strong.   I also prefer to keep my eyes up and gain sight knowledge of an area so that future use of electronics becomes a back up and not a crutch.
    • Is fishing Cenaiko worth doing in late June and July? I’ve never really trout fished before and I want to give it a try. If it’s worth fishing, how would you fish the lake? I have an ultralight setup with #1 and #0 Mepps spinners but I have a feeling that wouldn’t work well trying to pull Trout out of a lake. Any tips? 
    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.   
    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there. 
    • This feeder is blackbird proof for the sole purpose that only woodpeckers and nuthatches can eat upside down. I purposely angle it this way so it’s easier for the pileated woodpeckers to hang on.
    • It only takes about 5 Mb/s to stream a HD movie.   I'm guessing you have some sort of interference going on.   Inadequate BW shows up as buffering....   Or the Roku is going bad.   I have had a couple of them do that, including a roku stick.      My money is on roku device being bad.   If you have a chromecast, does that work better?
