TOURNAMNETS?

25 posts in this topic

Anyone know of upcoming tournaments... I'd like to get into a few.

I've fished the Devils Lake Tournament one time, but other than that - never really fished tournaments.

If you could post tournaments and dates, that would be excellent... Also, let me know if there are any tournaments that allow portable houses.

THANKS

There are a bunch:

1.Brainerd Jaycees Ice fishing extravaganza slated for Jan 26

2.8th annual "challenge" Lake L'Homme Dieu in Alexandria on February 9.

3.Forest Lake Ice Fishing contest February 16

Well not a bunch, but enough to keep you busy. Looks like all have a lot of good prizes. The brainerd one looks to be the best. giving away a new truck and boat and a lot of cash prizes. Lastly, these look to be house free, so dress warm.

I'll have to check my schedule and see if any of these match up with my days off. good luck. the Perch

Actually I think it's the Glyndon Rod and Gun Club that sponsers this one. Not that it really matters I guess.

Are you from Glyndon Ludzy??

Nope not from Glyndon, I live in Fargo.

I have a buddy who lives there. He turned me on to this tournament 3 years ago. I didnt make it out this year. Heard the big walleye was about 10.5 lbs. this year. Good Job to that guy!

There is a tournament on Lida this saturday (09Feb08) that is being put on by the local Jaycees. As far as I know, it is ten dollars to enter and starts at one o'clock. Thought someone out there may want to know.

Are you sure that is the correct date? I am interested if so. I went to look for more information about it and I found a website that said it was on January 27th? The link to where I found that info was: [Note from admin: Please read forum policy before posting again. Thank you.]

I'm pretty sure he's correct on the date. I've heard it advertised on the radio (KRCQ 102.3 FM out of DL) it is being put on by the Pelican Rapids Area JC's.

Will the holes be predrilled, can you fish anywhere, or do you have to drill them in a given area? Do you have to fish on the ice... geeze sounds like I am planning to cheat... nope. Hate fishing on the ice when its cold and I have a few spots that I would like to fish if I entered grin.gif What are the prizes (first few is sufficient)?

Thanks ALOT!

I can't answer all of your questions, but as far as for the one about prizes goes.... The radio ad says that there is over $1100.00 in prizes with an aqua view camera being given away.

It doesn't sound like they have the prizes like the one last weekend in PR had, but may be fun to go to. Although -6 for a high on Saturday may keep me away.

Does that mean would be sitting on the ice? If that is the case it would have to be much warmer than -6! I am a fair weather tourney man. eek.gif

Not sure, but most ice tournaments don't allow portables. Although, under those circumstances, I would have to think that they would almost have to, or not have anybody show up.

From what I was told tonight, they are allowing portables this year. I am not sure how reliable this information is but thats what I was told. I can't imagine them saying no since it is supposed to be so cold with such high wind.

Just read on the Fargo Forum web site that the Pelican Rapids JC's tournament scheduled for tomorrow has been re-scheduled until next Saturday the 16th. A look at the extended forcast shows highs near 30 next Saturday, so that is a good decision to switch it in my book.

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!

      Hello FM family!!  I HAVE A 2000 18.5' Fisher DXV boat and am having problems of water getting into the boat.  I have filled up the bottom of the boat with water to see if something is cracked on the boat itself and have found nothing.  It seems like the only time water comes in is when I use live well pumps. I have a guy replacing all the hoses that would have water going through them to see if one is cracked.  The water that comes in is enough that I have to run the bilge pump about every half and hour.  If I forget to run bilge then I have so much water I can't get up on plane when I take off.  Once the hoses are replaced and water still gets in, what would be my next step??  Cracked livewells??? I have two of them in this boat.  Any ideas??  Thanks!

      I'm doing a day trip there on Saturday, will post afterwards. I plan to just fish the big basin area humps and points.

      Just looking for general advice... Taking our grandson on his 1st Rainy Lake boat camping trip, 7/01-7/05. We'll be near Kempton Entrance on the east side. I've been here many times before, but never over the 4th. Plan to target all species, but want 'eyes for supper. Are the walleyes on the reefs yet or still transitioning? Depths? Leeches or minnows? Bass/pike still in shallows? Main goal is to give him some opportunities for some fish. Thanks 'Pout

      Hay Creek in Red Wing is probably your closest option.  Otherwise the Kinni, Rush, etc, just over the boarder in Wi is a good fishery.

      I was kind of restless last night so since it was a bit windy I decided to go for a quick trip to a nearby small lake that I rarely go to. Tried lindy rigging leeches but the sunfish were on the chomp! I eventually went to a shallow weed point and marked a bunch of fish. Started pitching small jigs/plastics and absolutely pounded the crappies. I have never in my life caught so many small ones. Lots of 5-7" with the occasional big one 13-14" mixed in... I did not feel like cleaning fish so tossed all back. Should be a phenomenal crappie lake in a couple years...

      Welcome Rachelkate21 to the forum.  "brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout?" That is a pretty high order around Lakeville or anywhere. You may have to go south of you around Whitewater or up north in the arrowhead area. Best bet is check out the MN DNR site for Trout streams and their locations within the state. Good Luck!

      Wanderer ,I believe Ely seizure was something to do with the BWCA . Lots of articles in newspaper .Some law about no commercial activity ( an active viable fishery) in side of park unless it enhances park like canoe rentals ect.... They were trying to stop Fishery for last number of years. I believe DNR does not want to do away with Frozen Bait Market , they just don't want fish from the Great Lakes or other contaminated areas to bring diesese to inland lakes.  If fish does not have a VHS Certification Number on its package , I would not be using it for bait.  Grocery store stuff totally Illegal ...  I emailed a Bait Company that has VHS Certified Smelt and Alewifes   info@awesomeadventuresfisheries.com     They gave me a list of stores that carry their products ... Save hunting around for Legal Bait   Hope this Helps

      We only fished for 5 hours (only 2 hours were worthwhile 29 ft).
