Winning Fish and What Lure?

52 posts in this topic

The 18th annual Brainerd Jaycees ice fishing extravaganza is only 11 days away, I feel the excitement starting to build aleady. What are some predictions on what the biggest fish of the day (January 26th noon-three)? And what will it be caught on? My guess is that it will be a pout this year, a 6 pounder. I think it will be caught on a golden shiner and tip-up. I am thinking that we will run a contest at our store and if anyone hits the exact weight and species of the winning fish, we will offer up a nice prize package. Lets here what you think and if you want to register your guess, email me.

Have a good Tuesday,

Walleyedan

My prediction is that the winning fish will be a 6lb 9oz walleye on a rainbow chub on a set line in 50 + ft of water ( because that is where I will be fishing, it will be caught by the guy two holes away). good luck to all at the extravaganza.

I know a 29" walleye that was just released from the tournament site two nights ago. It's still swimming and should be hungry by the 26th. My guess ... 8lbs 11oz. By the way, it hit on a set line with shiner on a white glow hook in 33 feet of water.

3lb 6oz Northern Pike

On fathead in 14 FOW

I have a feeling that with the cold setting in the bite will not be "on" and the winner will be small, relatively speaking.

The only "catch" to this is that you have to fish it to qualify. If you are not fishing feel free to guess, but let us know if you aren't fishing the contest when you post your guess.

If the cold weather pushes fish into tight lip mode I say tulibee at 2.4 pounds.

Last year 5 of top 10 and 9 or top 15 fish were all tulibee.

Looks like a lot of 2 pound tulibee swimming around in that lake. Tulibee is the money fish.

will not be there.

I will say that a 5lb 9oz walleye will win caught on a rainbow minnow dangling on a red hook below a bobber.

My wife and I will be fishing the event.

everyone know that I will win by catching a carp in 30-40 feet of water. Using a hot dog and corn on a jigging spoon. While eating a peanut butter and kippers samwitch.

if i don't ketch any thing maybe i could register one of my herrings.

Shhhhh! Don't let the word get out about hot dogs and corn. Those are two items we don't sell. ;)Good luck out there.

A more serious guess would be some one winning with a big tullibee 3-5 lbs.

I think a big school will come flying through and that anyone fishing up high in the water column with flashy jigs will catch them.

      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.
