Hey all:

So far we've got Condor, stfcatfish, Northlander and Poutslayer, and maybe Pigsticka's dad. Anyone else?

The meet starts at 8 a.m. on Lake 25 of Nelson Lake. Here are the directions.

From the intersection of Hwys 27 and 63 in Hayward, head north on 63 for 4.3 miles and take a left on Nelson Lake Road. Go half a mile on Nelson Lake Rd and take a right on Tanning Point Road. After traveling 7/10 of a mile on Tanning, turn right on Small Road. Go 2/10 of a mile, and the short road downhill to the landing turns off to your left. It is not marked at the turn as a landing, but you turn left just at the "Patrow's Pad" sign. Head out on the ice and turn right, where a quarter mile ahead of you you will see several permanent houses. They are sitting right on top of Lake 25.

Oh, the GPS coords for the turn off Small Road to the landing are: N 46 degrees, 05.103' and W 91 degrees, 25.955'.

Look for either a maroon 1997 Ford F-150 and/or a beat-up blue 1985 Chevy Silverado with a white topper. There may also be a green/yellow banner planted in the ice.

Northlander will bring his grill. I will bring my Coleman stove and a pot of chili. If beer is what you want, BYOB. grin.gif

Looks like we found a decent crappie/pike pattern there, but did not find the walleyes today.

See you there, and if you're not on the above list and want to go, just post a reply here.

Condor: No, I wouldn't do that to my worst enemy. Well, maybe my worst enemy. But doing that is a good way to MAKE enemies.

There are cribs around Lake 25 in several spots, marked on the Fishing Hot Spots maps, and there should be room for the five (even the six, seven, eight, nine, ten, if it happens) of us. Also, the pike tip-ups will be spread out shallower.

I was just wondering because of the thread on the red lake forum about rude people, it was more of a joke than a question

Shoot Dan, good chili, good brats, warm day, good company, short drive. You only live once man. grin.gif

Condor: Joke taken. See you tomorrow. grin.gif

And for those early birds who look at the posts at 5 a.m. instead of sleeping, here it is for NW Wisconsin: Saturday, m,ostly sunny, flurries in the morning. Highs 15 to 20. East winds 5 to 10 mph (Lake 25 is on Nelson Lake's east shore, so it will be COMPLETELY sheltered).

Saturday night, mostly clear. Lows zero to 5 below. South winds 10 to 15 mph.

Well, it was the four of us, after all.

Many crappies were caught, and after sorting through, one brought home a limit of fish up to11 inches, and the others brought home a bunch of fish, too. I got an 8.5 pound pike on tip-ups, and we all had chili and brats.

Not exaclty an FM meet, since we all knew each other already, but a nice day on the ice. grin.gif

Yes it was fun. Especially when Poutslayer Crapped his pants when the big ford honked the horn 2 FT. from his house! Wish I could have seen his face! By the way Stfcatfish you need to get some 50 pound test tip up line. Your hooking or should I say catching percentage is starting to look like Shaks freethrow percentage!!

    • Ill let dealer plug into computer and see what shows up. 
    • Pigger steak on the grill, taters and corn. Yea yea, I get docked etiquette points for no serving dishes.
    • I suppose there is no check engine light code plug in on those like a car? Sometimes you can read and clear a misfire code. Did you try switching plugs out on the trail?
    • Had scratchers down but probably didn't matter much. Wasn't overheating and temp on gauge stayed at 160. Another guy in club thought it might also be bad gas and a misfire settting off check engine. Ill see what they come up with when they plug into computer. As far as electronic reverse lots of problems with it on internet. Fuse wasn't blown and I also bought and changed the 2 relays that people have had problems with and still nothing. I think the Servo motor crapped out as those have had problems to. I just hope it doesn't take to long to fix as spring is around the corner  
    • Wow, sorry to hear all that.I call it the Northshore curse!  Did you have your scratchers down? Or do you think it's just a short somewhere?  😟
    • it takes some practice. I was skeptical at first also but friends did great on them so made the switch and I use them 95% of the time for gills and crappies now.  Still learning
    • Made it up to Silver Bay for a ride on Saturday. Got about 15-20 miles down trail and sled starts to miss and wants to die and check engine light comes on. Shut it off and look things over and everything looks OK and not overheating. Start back up and runs fine for about 10 miles and does same thing. Did this about 4 times till we got to Trestle Inn. Im thinking its bad gas so was going to go put some premium in it to see if that helps. Start machine and put in reverse and back up and hit button to take out of reverse and nothing happens. Reverse fail comes up on gauges not good. Only good thing was stranded in Trestle Inn parking lot instead of woods. Gave guy I was riding with my car keys to come back with my truck and trailer and went and drank beer for a couple hours. Finally get everything back to motel and get organized and come back out to get some stuff out of truck and step on back of trailer and it flips up. Someone must have helped themselves to my tilt trailer pin as it would have never fell out on its own. Had to run to town on Sunday and round up a pin for trailer and dropping off sled at dealer tomorrow. At least its still under warranty.  
    • Thanks Presidents for the day off!  😁   Went back over to the same trails by Orock and hit it pretty hard to burn off some of the carbon I built up pulling the grandkids and sleigh around the other day. The trails were groomed and not bad but the groomer seemed to have put some pretty deep grooves in the trails around the corners. Never really saw that before anywhere? 🤔 There were a few folks out but no where near last weekend. My top end rebuild seems to be breaking in pretty well and the compression has been going up the last few rides so hopefully I'm almost there. 🤗    
    • I picked up some impulse mayfly plastics and mud bug jigs. I have tried plastics in the past with mixed results. I expect good things from the impulse mayflys. It would be nice not to have to mess with live bait.
    • Like Mike said, location is going to be key to giving you recommendations. The types of activities you want to engage in and price you are willing to pay can also be factors as well as how old your camper is in some instances.
