Blackduck Derby

Been getting a few calls on the Annual Jaycee Fishing Derby on Blackduck Lake, so here's the info I have so far:

Date: Saturday, February 23rd, 2008

Time: 1:00-4:00pm

Place: Blackduck Lake (public access)

Cost: Tickets $10.00. Kids 12 and under free with paid derby ticket

Sounds like it will be pretty much the same as last year.

Grand Prize: Ice Castle 6.5x12 Fish House

2nd Prize: Vexilar

3rd Prize: Gas Ice Auger.

Three prizes in each of the four fish categories: Walleye, Northern Pike, Perch, Alternate Species, with an entry in each catagory per fish, with the drawing for the prizes to be held at 4pm.

Door Prizes and Drawings Throughout the day

Shelters Allowed

Free Bait at the entrance (donated by Tabers)

This event is always a good time for the family and the town of Blackduck. Looking forward to it again this year, and maybe I will win something again. I got skunked last year, but did see some nice eye's come in and sniff the bait. The two years before I caught the first fish of the tournament and placed 6th for a wonderful Quilt that is on the bed in the OFFICE! grin.gif

Who all is going to attend?

It is a lot of fun, prizes are good and of course the multiple door prizes. Yes, they do three prizes for each of the four catagories (walleye, perch, pike & alternate species). For every fish you catch in each catagory you register it (no matter what the size) and then you will have an entry for each fish in each of the catagories that you have fish in. At the end they will draw three winners, so each fish gives you a chance no matter the size. I talked to them last night and don't have a list yet of all the prizes.

      Yeah, but this one is packed with useful information and tips, and not everyone who browses the site today saw this in 2015. It's really a great thread, and that's why I bumped it.    Wouldn't it be more sensible and more useful to the members of the site to simply edit the title and remove the "2015"?   ***How about it, mods? Rejuvinate this thread with a new title!***

      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.
