Fishing Contest on Pokegama

6 posts in this topic

I heard that they moved a fishing contest from the cities to up here on Pokegama. It is supposed to be a huge contest from what I hear. Does anybody know the details? When is it? How much are tickets? What is the name of it? All i heard was that it's on Pokegama Lake and is supposed to be a huge contest with alot of really big prizes. Somebody has to know some details.

The name of that contest is the Golden Rainbow. It is to my knowledge that this Contest has been canceled. I think the web site shows it is coming but they ran out of funds. This has been confirmed through the Chamber. There is a great contest coming to Pokegama Feb. 24th at the Laplante Road Landing. The contest is called The Bottom of the 9th and is hosted by the Grand Rapids Baseball Assoc. . I have been to this contest and it is awesome! One of the prizes the year is a one year lease of a new vehicle along with NUMEROUS prizes. Augers, flashers, fish houses, and many more. Also big cash prizes. Besides, the $ goes to youth baseball, a great cause.

Thats too bad that contest was cancelled. Sounded like a great event for the community to host. Is this Koenig the high school parking lot cop? It's gotta be. You are a fishing guide now? What an upgrade in career paths(no offense bmc)! I remember you from back when you first started there. So how is the fishing guide business? I've always been interested in doing something like that but it seems like a tough gig to get into. Anyways, good luck fishing and keep posting reports. This site has been pretty slow about getting fresh reports up.

GOOD LUCK FISHING

Yes this is he. The school thing has been a winter thing for about 9 years. I have been guiding for 17 years in the area and in the resort business for 20 seasons now. You are right about the contest being great for the community. It's definately too bad. The baseball programs contest is a great deal. If you have been to it, you already know about all of the prizes. Lots of fishing up north but not alot of action since the cold snap. A few of the small lakes have been producing some big gills but ya need a sled to get to them. But I guess with a name like Crappie King, you already knew that.

No offense taken, crappie king, I wish I could make that type of upgrade!!! I heard that contest from the Cities is a no go, but not sure why. The Bottom of the 9th tourney is a good time and for a good cause. It's nice to see them move it around the lake too!!! I'm planning on being there, work schedule permitting.

      Ha!  Me too!  My father bought that last winter and was first voyage on ice. First ice on Leech was rough and those side by sides don't absorb all that well. . Still a good time.

      For holiday gift ideas, consider a locally made gift created from trees harvested in Minnesota. Wooden toys, handcrafts and keepsakes are a great green gift option. Wood is a renewable resource that is natural, nontoxic and eco-friendly.   “Wood products are great green gifts for both kids and adults,” said Kristen Bergstrand, DNR utilization and marketing program coordinator. “Uniquely hand-crafted and individually customized wooden gifts are a wonderful option for a person who has everything.” Wooden blocks, rocking chairs or horses, puzzles, rattles, picture frames and artisan bowls or wood crafts are unique items that are often passed down to future generations as family mementos. Thousands of items are made from wood harvested in Minnesota forests. About 30 percent of the state’s wood fiber comes from state forest lands. The Minnesota forest products industry brings $16.1 billion to local economies. The industry creates jobs and brings financial support to small and large manufacturing and retail businesses across the state. Making products from trees often requires less processing and energy than plastic or other products. Wood is also renewable and reusable. Most wood products can be recycled and wood waste can be converted into green energy as biomass. Well-managed forests grow back into a forest after harvesting. And buying wood products also helps the environment. Trees absorb carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that causes global climate change, and store carbon in their wood. Locally made products from trees harvested in Minnesota use less fossil fuel for transportation than imported goods. Visit the DNR wood products webpage to learn more about the benefits of buying and using wood products. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
