Guys (and Gals),
  FYI,  we used to make Silver Lake a fish-in destination every year.  Don't know what happened, but I always enjoyed it.  Long drive, but what other lake can you fish in the dead of winter, under docks and brush and actually have a chance of catchin' sumthang!  If the weekend works, I'm in!  As I recolect, the Silver Lake fishins of years past, were quit popular.

Hey,  Daryl says that the "Silver Lake open" is in March 19.  Maybe we could include this as our "road trip/freeze-in" for March.

I am not sure how you get into the Silver Lake open but since we would maybe be down there anyway maybe we couldmake it pay.

I really want to keep the fish-ins seperate from any other function. They are to help new members get a feel for the club, and for current members to have fun. The open has like a $100 entry fee I think, but thats besides the point. With info I have obtained from past members that ran this program, I will keep fish-ins seperate. If it is gonna interfere with the Open, then I will move it to February.

I understand that.  I was just thinking if we weren't going to make a fish-in at Silver then some of us might want to form up and go to the Open.  I would be interested.

We had Silver lake as a fish-in desitination maybe 2 or 3 times, but ultimately dropped it due to lack of participation.

I, for one, will not be driving 3+ hours for a fish-in.  If I'm going to go that far, I'd rather go to Potholes.

Just my .02

Well don't look at it as just a "fish-in."  You can spend a good part of the day on a great lake with a chance to catch a pig. The only time you miss on the water is for lunch, and you don't have to eat. Just show us your big fish if you got one and get back out there. It's also a good time to chit-chat with our other great members.

Rob,
  As opinions vary, so do the thoughts and reasons for an early spring trip to Silver sanctioned by the club.  First of all, I remember participation being good at the Silver Fish-ins.  Secondly, alot of the new members we acquire from the sportsman show, etc. have never seen Silver Lake, yet our first tournament of the year, the opener, and normally a nervous time for new members.  An opportunity for a new member to see the lake, spend time at a fish-in and meet a couple fish-in regulars might just do some good.  We don't all make every fish-in but I thought they we're for the new members, not the old anyway.  "MY 2"

I agree. They are primarily for the new members, but we need the old ones there for the new ones to meet. I want the new ones to see good participation from all the members or what are we showing them?? We always post that this is the best club with great people, but how does it look when we have 3 people show for a fish-in? It still is a WBC function and should be utilized. A little sacrifice for the benefit of the club and members is all we can ask.

Hey Rob, count me in, I'm all about sacrifice- just look at my last boat! I had the opportuity to do some early march fishing this year and put two fish in the boat over 6lbs. (good fighters)

Hey Jim,

Ya, 300 sounds a little excessive. Since I just love math, let's say with these short days in winter, you fish 8 hours...

8 hours * 60 minutes/hour = 480 minutes of fishing

480 minutes / 300 fish = 1 fish every 1.6 minutes

That is quite the catch rate. Yes, I am a geek.

But hey, we are all fishermen here, and the point is... there are a lot of fish to catch!!!  Grin

Chris

300 fish per boat w/ three people in it.  It's just a panfish fest.  All catch and release.  Lately the perch and blue gill have slowed but the crappie and still pretty hot and heavy.
