Sounds like fun. Too bad i'm in a softball tournament. Why are all registered walleyes mandatory kill in this tournament?

Wish you could make the tournament but I understand it is a busy time of the year. Maybe you can make it next year.

Regarding the Walleye Kill requirement; this is mandated by the DNR when we apply for the Tournament Permit. The DNR has determined that because of the time of year, the water temperature, and the lake, the probability that the fish would survive being caught and released would be very low. For this reason, rather than wasting the resource they have stated that the fish must be harvested.

Best tournament around. I will be their bright an early for this event. I had such a good time when I fished it. Make sure you stop at the bait shop and buy the #4 hornets!!!!!

Just wanted to say thanks to Craig at the bait shop for being open at 5 am everyday. Not to many bait shops that tailor to the fisherman anymore.

You will always get my Business, also nice looking girls that handle my bait as well. Except the blond, she try's to get the hot bite out of me every time for Dad lol!!!!

Ducky I second that. I feel that the service there is definately tailored towards fisherman and you feel like your getting good advice. I picked up a couple of those #4's there last week myself. wink Sorry I can't make the tourney either my daughter has a soccer game/torney thing going on that day. Hope you get a good turnout though!

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir
    • monstermoose78
      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,
    • Tom Sawyer
      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
