3rd annual diamond lake walleye tournament

6 posts in this topic

For anyone who hasn't fished this and for all those who have, we will once again have the annual tournament on diamond lake in August. Scheduled date is August 25th with a start time of 7:00a.m. For anyone who is interested, this is a two person team tournament with a $25 per team entry fee. 100% payout. Fishing times are 7:00a.m-2:00p.m. A maximum of 15 teams will be allowed to fish in this tournament. First 15 teams to sign up will be entered. Last year we had a great turnout and I am hoping for a repeat this year. For more info or questions about this tournament, send me an email at monbuck_8@hotmail.com or monbuck8@yahoo.com. Entry forms can be mailed to you or sent by email. Deadline for signing up is August 19th. Hope to see some new faces and the regular ones out there again this year.

sparce,not sure what your asking. The tournament is based on a point system just as our walleye league has been for years now. Each team is allowed 6 fish to measure with a minimum of 14" required to measure. Each fish is measured at the end of the tournament and points are tallied, the team with the most points is the winner and so on.

If you are asking how many fish are brought in at the end of the tournament, last year the top team brought in 5 fish to be measured and the second place team had 6 and there were two other teams with just one fish.

If that hasn't answered your question, let me know in more detail what you are asking.

If you are asking about weights for weigh in the first year was four fish for ~18lbs, and Chad I do believe that we brought in 6 last year as well for ~16lbs, correct me if I am wrong. As he said we do his point system to determine the winner but these were agreed upon weights. We have only been allowing people to sign up a week prior, unless Chad says otherwise this year. We decided this to prevent people from jumping in if they are on fish or backing out if they are not. It creates a more level playing field, especially for those who do not have a chance to prefish readliy prior to. This is something that has bugged me with other tournaments I have done I guess. If you are confident enough then give it a shot, it will be fun nontheless. For me, it will be the first time even seeing the lake this year because I have lived in NE for the summer, similar to last year. I hope to see you there. Hopefully the bite keeps all the boats busy. End time has been 2pm

Is anyone else that has participated the last couple years on the forum here?

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.

      I did that with tango and saw a world of difference ... I started at Sand Pines and they helped me tons. The kid brought me out kept all the pheasants caged and would plant one at a time in a easy spot where I could see where he planted. I would let tango out we would flush it shoot retrieve come back I would put him in the car and we did that 3 times. After that he then planted the rest of the ones I bought and we found all but one. Next spot I brought him was Golden Meadows and they were helpful as well I had them flag the general area the pheasants were planted. I went there a couple times and each time they used less flags and planted the birds farther away from the flags they did have out. Until the last time I went used no flags at all.

      As if there was any question...definitely be careful on those high current lakes.  I went through (walking) on Koetter tonight. Thankfully I only plunged one leg in to the hip and was able to scramble away.   Its a spot I have been a dozen times in the past few years.  I knew the ice got thinner in this area but was always passable and I followed a 4 wheeler or tank track and then a foot/sled path so I thought I would stay dry.  I was ON the path when I got wet.  Had picks around my neck and glad I did even if I didn't use them (happened SO fast).  The walk back to the car was more than a little nerve wracking.  Not sure I'll ever fish that spot again.  And in the future I wont be so trusting of other's tracks.  Spud on...   tg
