Walleye Classic Pokegama Lake Grand Rapids

Recommended Posts


Just to let you know, the Chamber's 2012 Catch, Record and Release Walleye Tournament, sponsored by Paul Bunyan Communications, will take place on Pokegama Lake on June 16, 2012. This will be the best tournament yet and there are a few changes in the format this year starting with both the Rules Meeting, on June 15th, and Award Ceremony, on June 16th, taking place under a tent in the L&M Parking lot on South Highway 169.

The Tournament Committee is planning a fun couple of days starting with a community/family outing in conjunction with the Friday,

June 15th, 2012 Rules Meeting. Their plan is to include lots of stuff such as seminars, the Let's Go Fishing booth, Kiwanis fish baskets, Up-North Kettle Corn, Marla’s Curb Side Craze (ice cream), some vender displays, a DNR Invasive Species booth, the Itasca County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue Team and kids’ activities. There will be room to display 15 Competitors Boats during the Rules Meeting Event. The first 15 boats registered will have the option to be one of the boats on display.

In addition, 1st Place, 2nd Place and 3rd Place will be guaranteed at $5,000, $3,000 and $2,000 respectively regardless of how many boats are registered for the event and the entry fee has been reduced to $250 per boat. Places 4 through 10 will be paid based on the number of boats registered.

The web-site is in the process of being up-dated to reflect the changes for 2012, so check it periodically starting in February and get your registration in early to qualify for the boat display option.

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
