If you are talking about the Eastern Idaho get together, sadly, I think the answer is it doesn't usually happen.  Here is last year's attempt:

https://www.iceshanty.com/ice_fishing/index.php?topic=352462.0

We were scheduled for Jan 27 but we pushed to Feb 10 and then we had that wicked thaw.   We had selected Twin Lakes in order to accommodate the folks that don't like trout.  I'd love to do Blackfoot or Chesterfield but I am open to other places as before.  A January date might be best to have the best chance of ice.

Lets get something going! I've already been fishing 5 or 6 times, after next weeks coming temps the ice should be good enough for the people scared of the thin stuff.

Usually the 2nd and 4th weeks of the month. I work the 1st thru the 8th and the 16th thru the 23rd of every month.

Either day should work. I vote Twin lakes. I like the multiple species there.

Fished it today, almost enough ice to be comfortable. Fishing was worth it. Iced a few decent perch and a good slime rocket.

No worries.  After Christmas we're supposed to get a nice cold snap.

I vote for 1/12 Sportsman's Park, with Glendale as the backup plan.

Sunrise is 8:01 a.m. that day.  I will be shooting for an early arrival.  Anyone familiar with the place please respond or PM me with tips.  Probably not a snowmobile place?  How steep is the boat ramp?

And a suggestion for a general area to set up or look for the gang?  Big Hole looks like a large place.

There are two boat ramps , about 300 yards apart . The main ramp is North of the secondary ramp . The parking lot is plowed and very large. I suggest we setup on the south or secondary ramp . Neither ramp is steep . Most everyone is using an ATV or walking out . You could use a snow machine and if we get any more snow . It would be even better for them . There is 1.5 inches of snow on the ice . I am going in the morning and again Saturday . If you have anymore questions I could help with I will try .

I wanted to chime in so you guys know that I was interested. The timing of the scheduled outing doesn’t work for me as I am headed back to Minnesota to ice it up back there for a week from the 12th to the 19th. Hope you folks have a great day at Sportsmans and catch a bunch!

So, we should drill and fish near the south ramp?

I suggest people fan out 75 to150 yards to fish and then come together at around 1 pm and cook up some lunch . Fish from 8 to 1 . Then have the meet and greet in the parking lot . When we have our family outings on the ice we cook polish Sausage and hot dogs on an open fire . Boil up some chili.  And Smores for desert.

I normally fly a small IS flag and a small militia flag, on 6 foot poles.

How many are coming ? I plan on bringing . Hotdogs , Polish Sausage , buns , paper towels . A pan to build the fire in . Hot dog sticks . Mustard and ketchup.  If someone could bring some wood for the fire that would be great . If not I will try and find some . Bring some chips and what you want to drink . We can use my atv trailer to setup the food . I will be pulling it with a Silver 4 door Dodge pickup . Lunch in the parking lot between 1pm and 130pm . Please respond so we know how many will be participating.  I would like to turn this into an annual thing . It would be nice to put faces to names .

Planning to come.  My SUV is in the shop and if it doesn't get done I'll find a way to at least drop in for lunch.
