I have posted the results of our Red Rock Outing in the Forums section of this Web site. It was a rough day on the water with a severe thunderstorm driving us off the lake about noon. The outing was this past Tuesday, July 19th.
Member Daryl Strohbehn is putting together plans for a fall walleye fishing trip to Lake Minnitaki which is just south of Sioux Lookout, ON. The dates are September 9-17, 2016. If interested contact Stro about details. His E-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jim Trow has changed the dates for the ice fishing outing to Webster, SD in early January of 2017. The new dates are to leave Ames Monday, January 2, fish Tuesday and Wednesday, January 3 and 4 and return to Ames Thursday, January 5th. He has reserved the lodge at Boomers Outback that sleeps 15. It has 15 beds, 4 bathrooms and a gathering place on the main floor. The cost will be $27.79 per person at full occupancy. The cost of the guided daily trip on the ice is $150 per day per person. They pick you up at the lodge, set you up in a portable ice shelter with all equipment provided and will clean your fish at the end of the day. If you are not catching fish in 20-30 minutes they will move you to a new location. If you previously signed up for the trip just let me at email@example.com or Jim Trow at firstname.lastname@example.org know if the new dates are OK. If you haven't signed up and wish to go let us know and we will see if we can fit you in.
Les Wolfe just got back from an outing to the English River in Ontario. The camp was at the outlet into the river from Lac Seul. He and member Andy Merical had a great trip with Andy catching a 53 in. muskie. Watch for a picture posted on this Web site. Les also has filed a Blog about the trip and you can find it in the Blogs section of this Web site. Check it out.
If you are fishing anywhere please note your success or failures in the Forums section or on your Blog page. Doing this will help fellow anglers choose productive fishing destinations.
Anglers meet every Friday morning for breakfast at Hy Vee Central (L way and Grand in Ames) between 7:30 and 8 AM. If we have a regular meeting at 7 AM we will then meet at around 8:15 -8:30 AM. Come join us for some fish stories and bring along a few of your own.
