How many teams and Whats the Payout like? I know that its 12 K total but how many places down? Sounds like a great idea and could be a fun tournament!

I found out about this tourney about a month ago. It should be pretty exciting to see how it goes. I wonder how many of their touring teams will make the trip up from the southern states. I know that we have a couple of boats signed up from our area. It is a great lake, we should see some dandy weights if the weather cooperates. If the payouts are anything like the payouts for their other tournaments it should be pretty decent. If they get a nice turnout I can imagine that first might pay three to five grand. Should be a fun one to keep an eye on.

Isn't this a really bad timing to have a fishing tourney in MN. Won't the crappies be plumb full of eggs? Or is this timing ok? Just thought I'd ask. Sounds like fun.

Sounds like a great time but it's also the time that I'll be Turkey Hunting grin.gifmad.gif, I wont be far from there though maybe make a trip down there at weigh in and see what's going on. That's usually a slow time anyways.

Next to the border opener on Big Stone which is where our group will be. Crappies spawn out in June so this will not affect the spawn too much.

I talked to John or whoever is in charge last weekend while he was at the NW Sport Show, and he said that if there's still ice it would be postponed and held the following weekend (first weekend in May). Won't know until we get closer to the 26th. Probably isn't going to allow much time for prefishing. Suppose to be 70 this week!!!!!

I talked to promoter a couple of months ago and they were not awrwe that lake could be ice bound as late as they expected to have contest.

They will have another date as they can hold it later and were going to contact Mn DNR as to when

The only dates in cconflict would be Fishing opener weekends or dates other tournaments would be held

[Edit will know later today as it may be one weekend later just talked to Jon and Betty]

I am going to call them now and see what they have planned

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?

      Probably not what your wanting to hear,  but I bit the bullet for an LX High speed transducer a couple years ago for my LX-6. Run it a couple times before removing it from my boat and going with a Lowrance. I found that on plane I frequently lost sonar and hard to see in bright sun. Hard to eliminate the excess noise as well. Ended up taking a real hard beating on getting rid of it also. Just my opinion, but I recommend checking out the Garmin Strikers or comparable Lowrance instead for the money. Love my LX for the ice, but it will remain my ice unit.
