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?

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
