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.

      I understand that the SonarChart data comes from user submitted data, but I wonder if that data is rife with errors.  Maybe the users set up their sonar wrong or something to contribute to the faulty data?  As your screen shots prove, they're highly inconsistent.  There is no 37 foot hole just south of the words Marion Lake nor along the western shorelines.  Based on my experience on the lake with my sonar in my boat, the Navionics data is more accurate than the Sonar Chart, so I'm not seeing the value in the $4.99 yearly subscription to the user submitted data. I guess I'll have to evaluate on a few different lakes and see, maybe it is just a problem with the data for Marion, I just expected that the user submitted data would be more accurate, not less accurate   On a side note, I noticed I could refresh my map update and that at least got rid of the data with the 51' depths, but it still looks like your screen shot on the right.  I'll keep checking for updates in hopes of better data come summer.

      I will be up there next week from Austin Texas.  Can anyone comment on the lake and how safe it is after the warm up?  I thought it would be very unsafe but I saw a truck on the ice plowing an ice rink this morning on one of the web cams.   Is there still plenty of ice and is the lake in pretty good shape now that is has turned cold again?  Maybe it is in better shape then before the cold?   I grew up in the area but that was 30 + years ago so any schooling on the ice would great.   Thanks for any comments.

      Was out there Tue.... Ice was getting soft on top. Access was in ok shape. Don't think you will be getting a wheelhouse out unless it's a real small light one.  Had 16-20 inches of ice yet
