They plow the parking lot so you should be good in a car . You can us my gear to fish . I have plenty . We can use my new 10" propane auger . Only used two times . If anyone else would like to get a taste of ice fishing . Let me know I can bring more rods and reels .

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.

Wanna ride?

Thanks! I just may need that.  I will PM you later after I get an idea from the mechanic.

I would far prefer to fish there, but agreed to Sportsman's Park so the guys who like pannies would be more likely to come.

acpchuck can't make it.  massNtrash is still in WY.  So is this the group?

-PF13
-Steve
-HWSlave
-Irish

These are the most active users here in the SE part of the state, as evidenced by our roll call.  Certainly a SW gathering at Cascade would be bigger, as we have more active users over there.

I'm still planning to come.

...and I will miss getting a taste of Curt's sausage.

My target will be a lazy 7:30 - 8:00 arrival.  I will follow curt's advice in his absence, and set up somewhere off the South ramp, maybe around the other side of that point to the East, depending on the population density (which I understand has been high).  I fly two flags as indicated before.   I PM'd you my mobile #.

I'll be closer to the 9:30-10:00 mark, if I can find the place. Never been.

Very nice to meet you Steve and Panfish. Had a great time and the boy never got bored. Had a fish on at least every other minute.

This was an excellent day.

I pulled up in the dark and as the guys in the truck next to me got out, I quizzed them about ice depth to see if I should take my snowmobile off the trailer.  They were friendly and helpful. I explained I was there to meet some folks and panfisherman13 introduced himself.  I spent the day with him and our other buddy I will call Big Mac.  Hey some variant of that should be your username here in IS.

After breaking through the edge on my snowmobile and pulling it out with my truck (can't fix stupid), I finally got out on the ice and received a terrific introduction to panfishing (thanks PF13) and had a super fun day catching perch and suckers.  I have some video and stuff to post, hopefully I will get to that soon.

Don't worry about the sled.  It wasn't in deep, just enough to get the exhaust bubbling.  I rode it down the dock and onto the ice right after.

Late in the morning we heard from IrishnId and we agreed to meet up in the parking lot if not before.  Irish also turns out to be a really good guy.

We never heard from HWSlave, even though I had sent him my mobile phone #.  Slave, I hope we didn't ditch you in any way.  We ended up setting up further across the bay than I had planned, and Irish was just North of the ramp.  Curt, we missed you.

We all agreed that we should do it again next year, with Irish hosting down at Glendale.  I suggest that we gather on-the-ice.  Irish can PM a map or instructions of where to set up.

Thanks to you guys for doing this!

So yeah, got there late.

Was already a sea of Eskimo huts, I walked straight off the ramp and started walking looking for a flag I never found so I set up and fished about 100 yards off the opposite bank.

Sounds like you might have been west of me. Fishing was decent anyways. I guess I lost my rod bag out on the ice with my reels in it.

Next time.
