Given that the heaviest fish are the winners, does everyone just go for northern/walleye in these things? I've never fished a tourney.....

My brother and I were first timers at the EXTRAVAGANZA last weekend and had a blast, even without any fish. I'm thinking about coming out to Jane on Sunday for some fun. Anyone know where to find a bit more info about this tourney? Found some basics in a couple local papers (time, location, cost), but was wondering about additional rules (augers, #of lines/holes, pre-fishing, shelters, etc). Don't want to haul too much out there if I don't need it Thanks in advance.

They will drill holes for you. You can have one line per ticket max of 2. No pre fishing on sunday and you can have a shelter but you can not seat in it while the contest is going. There is a circle you have to fish in.

      Nice gill Rick

      HunterFisher Don't rule out trying that lake again. If theres a lot of wood in the water those schools could, be pinned down on other trees than you were fishing. Trust me I have a lake near Glenwood i fish that has a bunch of tress scattered throughout the lake. It took me numerous times fishing it to figure out patterns on that lake. But once i found them well worth it!  I have found lakes with a lot of submerged trees or wood usally hold some real good panfish, . They have plenty of places to hide from predators and anglers through out the seasons.

      See you tomorrow Jeff we'll dial them in

      Keep checking in here for any updates.  There's a very good chance that the location may change a bit as there have not been a lot of catfish at the methhole area.  Prefishing in the next day or so will help us pin down a location.  I will post any changes here.
    • Borch
      A lake like that with no real hole or structure lends itself to roaming fish.  If there is a defined weededge that will be your structure.  Electronics are not going to show you much until the fish is on your bait.  Drill a lot of holes and move around until you catch fish.

      Hay thanks for your input.... Just got home and got skunked!!!!! But that is ok at least now I know to take it off my list of lakes to fish in the winter, but will be back on it come spring and early summer...

      Caught 17 walleyes on Friday, but all were dinks except for two 15".  Caught 6 more Saturday, all small again except for one 16".  Also caught a 12 inch perch, 3 eelpout, and 2 tulibee. Considering the snowstorm prediction for Sunday, I pulled my house off the lake and parked it back in the garage for the season.  LOW next week, then onto lakers the following weekend.

      I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday. I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday.
