Looking for "Freeze Your Butt" results

13 posts in this topic

I fished the "freeze your butt" tournement out of Evert's last Saturday. I've noticed a huge push this spring from many media outlets singing the praises of gulp and other artificials. I'm an old school bait guy, especially for dinky walleyes and sauger. But on Saturday I got schooled in the ways of ringworms and other plastics. I was shut out on live bait(first time ever)

I haven't heard the results of the weekend. There had to be a hundred boats on the river so I bet there are a few FMers with info on the results. I would love to hear them.

Frozen bait fisherman, Hans.

The winner's are old river rats who win almost every year. They were not fishing in the crowds. Mike and I have had several days already this spring where our top 5 fish would have been in the 15 to 18lb range which would have put us in the money hunt. 43lb is just unreal. These guys had the biggest at 11lbs so the other 4 still averaged 8lb. There was a big drop from them to the next boat.

So who got your 20 dollars? Or was your standing bet off under these conditions?

Scout, good catch, it's good to see someone is paying attention. I fished with the our local chapter presedent of DU. It was his boat, he drove, and he picked the spots. I picked up the 20 dollar entry fee, 5 dollar big fish fees,the 7.50 launch fee and 5 bucks bait. I brought snacks.

The bet wasn't on, but this the exact situation the bet shines. Hans.

      In my eyes anywhere on the Rum is great for smallies. So far this year everytime I have been out the levels have been great even after all the rain we had just had to wait a couple days and the water was great. I put in at the Anoka fair grounds and travel up river

      (Too much mercury may affect a child’s behavior and lead to learning problems later in life.) That would explain some of the backwoods people     All jokes aside I would limit it to one serving a month for being pregnant or breast feeding for Bass, Catfish, Trout, Walleye, northern like they say   "Young children (under 15 years old) and fetuses are more sensitive to mercury. Too much mercury can cause lasting problems with understanding and learning. But studies show children benefit developmentally when moms eat fish low in mercury during pregnancy. "   Just because you are not glowing doesn't mean its necessarily healthy for a fetus it takes awhile for it to build up in a healthy adult that's just my           Methylmercury exposure in Wisconsin: A case study series” (2005)
      This articles describes exposure of 14 people who at fish two times a week or more and one person who ate no fish. "Three of the individuals reported vague subclinical symptoms such as mental confusion, sleep difficulty, balance problems, or visual disturbances, which improved after their mercury levels returned to

      I belive you need to pick up permit day before you enter when getting a motor day use permit that's how it works on snowbank

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.
