extravaganza question

11 posts in this topic

I plan on fishing the contest but a buddie of mine wants to come up and just observe and not fish. Does he need to by a ticket to be in the contest area? I looked up the rules on the jaycees web-site but they do not say. Thanks

You only need a ticket if you are fishing in one of the holes. I've seen quite few people out there just hanging out observing the crowd. Some people just play the raffles. Good Luck.

Just tell your buddies to support the charities and buy some of the raffle tix. The odds are about the best you can find.

Hey Camp Bob...

How ya been?

Haven't seen you in awhile.

Camp still going strong?

Keeping your hair in your head with all you do...camp, and planning of the contest?

What are the expected numbers this year for the contest?

Should be another good one, but I think a bit chilly.

Good Luck!!

Since this thread is already going I will post my question here:

1.)Is it leagal to use an under water camera (down viewing type) during the contest?

2.)If so, do many people use them?

I figure my FL-8SLT would have too much interference and wouldnt work as good out of the two (camera or vex).

Thank's for any input and good luck

If I were you I would bring your vexilar to check depths and then think of not using it during the actual contest. You may spend a lot of time searching to find the right depth.

My grandpa used to tell us "It's better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it." He was a wise old man.

Beginner question - How do you select your hole/holes for the tourny? Can you just pick any hole that is not occupied? Then do you have to stay in the same hole/holes? Or are you assigned a numbered hole or something???

tisosy11,

You can fish any hole that isn't taken. While you can only fish 1 hole at a time, you can move to any open one at any time.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
