Wont count as muskie season is closed. Only fish that are within seasonal regulations will be weighed. All muskies must be immediately returned to the water. That is right in the rules for the contest.

I was looking at the rules for this tournament last night and it never said the prizes for the fishing contest. It only lists all the prizes being given away for the contest and the raffle total. How many contest prizes do they give away and how do they determine 1st place, 2nd place, etc.?? Do they have seperate classes for walleye, pike, panfish etc. and award prizes to the top three, five, or ten in each class???

I will guess the top fish of the contest will be a 7.3 pound pike now that muskies must be returned to the water because of the regulation change.

Can you win more then 1 prize? I know I am dreaming here but if I catch a big northern can I then go for a smaller fish to hope for prize #104 to go with prize #1? \:\)

Neiko - As stated in the rules...

You may register, as many fish as you like, but only the heaviest fish you registered will qualify for a contest prize.

No contestant will be eligible for more than one contest prize.

      My garage roof is leaking from last few weeks and i am very much tensed about it because i have tried many things to block the leaks but nothing can prevent it.So i must call Roof Repair expert for this or is there any way to prevent those leaks.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
