Walleyes R Us kid tourney

7 posts in this topic

I don't know if that is what it was called, but it was fun. Bought my twin 7-year olds and they had a good time. We caught 8 sunnines in 3hrs -- They got bored but that was ok. -- and we got off the lake a little early.

Each kid won a door prize a bag full of fishing tackle. My twins won a fishing pole for last place in the weigh in -- just 1 pound each -- and they were so excited and proud. One of them also won a tackle box.

The tourney was on Middle C and I just wanted to thank EVERYONE that made that possible. What a great bunch of people to do that for the kids. It was our first time going and we will be back. They had tons of free water and pop and a snack for the kids and parents. What a great bunch of people.

Thanks again to everyone that made that possible.

I would like to join that Walleye club someday -- need to wait till T-ball is done in a year or two -- I understand they fish on Wednesday Night (T-ball night).

Does anyone know anything about that group?

Hey hitman, glad the boys had a good time. Hopefully you can make it again next year. Its a wonderful thing for the little fisherman in the area. We had an excellent turnout this year. The Kids tournament is put on by Walleyes-R-Us fishing league with most of the credit going to John and Darla Dockter. They do an excellent job in getting donations so each kid gets prizes.

The regular league has been around for many years and has outings generally in Becker and Ottertail counties. We do have one this year on July 21 at Devils Lake. We usually have 5-6 Wednesday evenings (6-9 pm) and 5-6 Saturday mornings (8-12) per year. Different lake each week. $10.00 per person per outing with around 10 - 20 boats each week. Its nice because you can fish only one outing or all of them. You can fish with you kids one week(we also have a kids division), and with your buddy the next week, and by yourself the next week. Very flexible. Its a great way to learn new lakes. Many of the areas elite walleye fisherman have used our league to hone their skills. Plus you will meet some of the nicest guys in the area. Our next outing is this Sat. on Ottertail.

Sent me an e-mail and I will get you all the info on the league. I can also get you a standings sheet from the kids tournament last week.

Brewer --

Thanks for the response. I was in Devils Lake for a couple of days and I just got back. I would like to put something in the paper -- the pic people took of all of the kids and the results -- can I get them.

What is your e-mail?

How can I get a hold of the Dockters?

      Cannons a go good 3 inches where I check and two guys out 100 yards

      We're making ice now. 0 degrees in Twig   I measured a spot along my shore that had opened during the warm up and found 4" of ice. If I thought about going out to deeper water I for sure would use caution and chisel my way.

      Yes SA fills tanks and should be able to fill a 30 lb tank but they charge a flat rate.  So if your tank is half full or empty you pay the same flat rate.    Uhaul charges by weight and you pay for what they put in.   Both are cheaper then the tank exchange and most tank exchange are 17 lb whereas SA and Uhaul fills to 20 lb.  When you figure that in your paying a lot more for convenience.    One more detail.  If your tank is out of date and needs a new inspection it can't be filled by UHaul or SA BUT the tank exchange will take them.

      I don't know of any product that will keep a pair work gloves dry.  Sure you can spray a water repellent on them that might bead rain water off but go work in them and they'll be saturated.   If your wearing the gloves for protection having them wet isn't the end of the world but if you need protection and warmth I bring a few pairs on the job.  Or you can purchase some hi-tech stuff that claims to be waterproof but a I know of none that will stand up to be a true work glove.    When I think of work boot I'm thinking leather.   I use Sno-Seal.  It stands up to a hard day on the job and Will keep your feet dry.  Being a wax base dirt will stick to it in warmer temps but bring on the cooler temps and it shines.   You could get a boot like Mucks but they will not hold up like a leather work boot.  So it depends on what type of work I guess.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.
