POUT - O - RAMA 2013!!!

Hey all!  This wonderful cold snap is making safe ice on the river, and the burbot are surely making their way upstream.  Let's get after 'em!  The official date for this year's gathering will be Saturday, January 5th 2013.  Let's use this thread to discuss anything and everything about the event.  If you're coming, please let us know here.  If you have not attended before, contact me via PM and I will disclose the secret location of Gooseneck Bend.

<br /><br />

Can't wait!

I plan to come, so long as there's no blizzards. I might bring a friend but won't know for sure until after Christmas.  Sweet deal, looking forward to it!

A nearby city and what state?

A nearby city and what state?... just out of curiosity to see how long the drive would be.  I would love to attend one someday.

That sucks, ESub.

Sorry you can't make it, man. This is the best overall date for the majority.   If you have a later day available,

I could probably be convinced to join you on the burbot grounds...

Looking forward to it

its a major highlight in my fishing year.  Will we be coordinating food, parking, shuttle rides, and what not, or playing it by ear?  I'm willing either way.

If possible we should

If possible we should coordinate some ride sharing from boyscout, parking down on the river is slim.  I'm going out Tuesday and hope to have some intel to share.

There is a good foot of ice

There is a good foot of ice at the Gooseneck, old hands at the spot will be welcomed with new and improved snags and log jams care of the June flooding...

 

In other news my flasher died.  I do gotta plug the people at Marine General (not something I normally do).  Those guys really went above and beyond to help me figure out what the problem was and tried to get me back on the ice.  Unfortunately it was out of their power so I'm out a flasher until I can get it out to Marcum and back.  

 

Fished for less than an hour due to running around trying to solve the flasher problem, I hate jigging solo without the flasher to zone out staring at.  Too ADD... I wish tipup fishing was more effective but such is life.

Had to make choices so I will not be making it this year.  Good luck all!

A local source told me that

A local source told me that the road in that area was under 3 feet of water in June – and it also suffered a “river Tsunami” when a part of the big bank slid down into the river.  The resulting wave took out a garage on the other side and blew two cars out into the swamp.

you can see some of that

you can see some of that resulting carnage still.  Duluth took a beating that night, I still can't believe I drove to an interview in that crappy weather.  Probably lucky to be alive, guess that isn't the first time I've said that though.

Carpooling and Parking

How many vehicles are we looking at?  We can probably only plan on 6-8 spots close to the location.  I'll most likely be traveling solo and would be more than willing to meet up with somebody nearby to reduce traffic.  There is a small pull off a short walk upstream that can be used as well and is easy to miss with the snow cover.

Have Fun.

You fellers have fun out there. I sure wish I could attend, but alas.

 

No, I'm really not coming. So bend some rods and release some Pout for the Dutch Bor, brothers...

Fishn sure is neat

Weather looks pretty good

Weather looks pretty good right now.  I'll probably show up around 2 p.m. or so, since I'm a slacker and hate getting up in the morning.  I do plan to return on Sunday, however.
