Going to find out why those wind turbines are in the area come Saturday. Will they cancel that tourney with the cold and wind forecast?

What are the rules for the tournament, and who or where does one need to go for joining the tournament .

when I went two years ago, you just check in on the east side boat landing. You can fish out of a house or on pails your choice anywhere on the lake.

Jared basically said the rules right there. There are people monitoring all the lake, and you can fish anywhere on the lake, must bring live fish to weigh in, 15 inch minimum I believe on any Walleye, 1 fish weigh in. Register at East Side Acres Campground of course located on the east side, right by the boat landing. Great prizes, from augers and more. They are a great small town outdoors group with a LONG history of land and water giving. They give away a 4 wheeler and trailer every year as well, as doing their annual pheasant feed and mulligan stew which is March 15th this year.

Come have som fun and see if you can get in on the great prize list. Registration will for sure start by 10am with official fishing starting at noon. I think it was last year that within a half hour after the tournament finished one of the houses caught a 9 to 10lber. hehehehe, nothing like great timing!

Yes there is a 15" minimum, I know there are cash prizes as well as other great prizes as muc stated. There is also a chance for a raffle which also costs $10. I know that kids do fish free (under 14 i think). So bring the kids for some fun. I hope to attend and not blow across the lake in the portable! hopefully the weather will cooperate. Id be devastated to catch a trophy 30 min after the tourney, but hey I would take a 9-10 pounder anytime. Round lake also throws a great tourney in the summer, annual horned trout tournament, great times on the mud hole.

      On many lakes it is possible to rent a boat for a reasonable price.  Or to hire a guide who knows the area and the lakes.

      Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      Here in Minnesota, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s and the Walleyes keep rollin’ in! Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches and crank-baits right along the weed line. Crawlers on a gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 and 26 feet. Jigging has been tough this week with the strong winds, but the Mayflies have finally tapered off!!
       
      Up on the Canadian side, bottom bouncing has been filling the live wells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have seen nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action can currently be had in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing is still sporadic with high 40” class fish being caught from shallow bottom bays or just outside of them. 

      Fish of the Week:
      49" and 46" Muskie
      40" Pike
      At least 10 Walleye over 25" 

      We hope to see you soon! Sunset Lodge

      This is close to home for me. I love the dunes, but the refuge is messed up. The refuge told me they were brining native game birds back, so I was excited and said sharptailed grouse and the guy looked and me and said no ringnecked pheasants. I laughed at him and said really he said yes really. I told him ringnecked pheasants are invasive species he argued they are native and I walked out shaking my head.    The refuge could be a strong hold for sharptailed grouse, prairie chickens, and water fowl if they managed for them. The dune could extend this area.

      G'day guys, I've started up this post as I will be visiting Minnesota (to be specific the Stuart Lake in the Ottertail Lake area) and I would love to hook into some fish! I'm originally from the Netherlands, have lived in Australia for the last 8 years working as a fishing guide, I have moved to Dallas TX with my wife and now we will be visiting my in-laws in Minnesota. I would love to catch Musky, which I know West Battle Lake holds, and of course Walleye. I have been trying to look for areas that hold smallmouth but was unable to find any. I don't have a boat up there or anything so I know I will be in a massive disadvantage for musky but I will give it a try with waders. I would love to get as many tips as possible! Cheers!

         Personally I do seem to catch quite a few overs, some days it can be a challenge to find keeper fish ( stupid problem to have, huh?). One thing I notice is that all the fish seem to be very thick through out the classes.   While I was tackling some honey-do's I noticed that the breeze was a bit stiff, I'm sure it was a challenge to maintain a line or consistent  speed.   Over all was it a good day for you?

      Nope that's exactly what I wanted to hear thank you probably will go to look at gander in forest lake to see if they have anything good left
    • ZachD
      There are good bass in Crooked too
    • DLD24
      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.
