We had a really great time with this outfit on January 16th fishing Lake Minnetonka, so why not try it again this time for some night fishing! We will rent and share a warm and cozy 8x16' Ice Castle "Special" fish house, complete with stove/oven/kitchenette and 6 pre-drilled holes. Everything you need to have an enjoyable outing on one of the Metro areas most phenomenal lakes!
We will meet at in the lot at Crescent Beach, 240 Birch Bluff Road. There is a very good plowed road going the whole distance to the fish houses, there should be no problems with any vehicle getting stuck in the snow. We'll meet at 5:00pm and rent the shanty for 4 hours from 6 - 10 pm. Tom who own these houses moves around the lake to find the best possible spots so address will be given out within 2 days of the event.
If you do not own any ice fishing equipment, Tom will have extra poles available. I always have an extra pole, extra hooks, jigs and am happy to share as well. Although we will have a heated fish house, you may want to dress in layers, that you can remove as you warm up inside. Tom will also drill a couple of holes outside for tip-ups and I for one will be frequenting the outer elements to check on them!
Bring your favorite beverage and a snack or dish to share so we can keep fueled up
I will probably bring a pot of chili and fixins' and put in on the stove!
Once you RSVP, you will get a pop-up note with my address to send me a check for $25.00 for the event, I will need to receive it by Thursday, February 10th to hold your spot in a fish house ...Bait is included!
Valid Fishing License is required!
If we can get enough people out we can get a second, third or more houses all together out there, and maybe even get out at 4:00pm to start for a longer shift! So get yourself on the waitlist and you will be moved up with the addition of more ice houses. These houses get rented out fast and fill up quickly, so don't wait to sign up!
(Just a reminder - unless otherwise specified, this and all TC Fishing Fanatics Meetups are adults-only events)
