a idea just came to mind last night. if we could talk rick into putting on the fishingmn.com ice fishing derby/tournament somewhere around the detroit lakes/ ottertail area how many of you would show up. Like I said its just a thought, the ice season is comming up pretty soon and maybe this year the tourney could actually be when there is some descent weather. I havent said anything to rick about it because I wouldnt be good at setting this type of ordeal up. Just let me know what you think

Depending on the drive from Spring Valley I might consider. I've been putting the miles on this year, trying to keep it somewhat to a minimum.

Hi Slick,
Let me know how many folks are interested, which Resort or access we are using, times, dates, etc. It would be nice if Paul could run it with you.

Let me know please.

This is a pretty big idea on my part. without eyeguy, im pretty much screwed on choosing resorts and such. Im not all that great on doing that kind of stuff. But if hes not busy and all maybe he will help me out. I dont know how many people are going to come. I was thinking on putting up flyers in local bait shops and things of that sort. How did you set up the one on mille acs?

Lets throw a few questions out just to see if it could work out.
Should we have a derby/tournament or should we have an informal get togather/bbq out on the ice for fun? I guess I'm all for the fun part, if I wanted to compete I would stick to the Ice leaders challenge series, they are well run but it's your choice.
Which lake? It would be just a guess but the bulk of the good folks attending would be local so maybe we should pick a lake thats handy for all of us.
How about a date? Most weekends will work for me other than the usual xmas, new years, red lake crappie contest or the old timers run in lake park. Lets put our heads togather and do this thing! Paul

I was more directed to the fun part too. I was thinking that we could go for money prize for biggest/smallest/etc. fish too. As for a lake my guess is as good as yours. For the dates. I was thinking well, more along lines when ever we think there will be enuff ice to drive vehicles. We should go more in debt tho. Maybe take some sort of a poll for what lake to fish? any suggestions will be fine

Your best chance for a combination of good weather and good fishing is sometime in December. Rush Lake south of Perham generally freezes early and can be driven on by Mid December, weather depending. It's got loads of structure and a good walleye population.

      @leech~~ I believe the permit does require those houses to be moved out of the contest area.  Not necessarily kicked off the lake. That’s what permits are for, eh?  Looks like a great day for you two - congrats!  Might’ve been the lake, the spot or the fisher.  But I’ll go with the lake too.

      Anyone come up with a good way to store the dinette table when fishing? My IC has two holes under the dinette and I put it outside to fish but it is sooooo cold when I turn it into a bed to go to sleep. Thinking of a bracket to hang it inside but I don’t really want to block a window? Any ideas? What do you guys do?

      Went by there today and noticed a few house setup in the contest area.  What happens to them next weekend? They are told to move or get kicked off a public lake? Should have gone to a different lake there Wanderer. Just saying. My son and I today.

      There have been signs there for a long time,   maybe 30 years?
    • Spartacus218er
      Good for him making those signs I enjoy his views in a nutshell!

      Access is in good shape at Hole in the Day.  Ice is in good shape and travels MUCH easier than last year.  But that was due to slush getting rutted and refrozen.  These warm temps might play that way again.  But for now all is well. Fishing though... the evening walleye bite was short like usual but finicky for us.  1 - 14 inch eye iced and one other lost.  Set line and shiner was responsible for the 14.  The hooked and lost fish was on a spoon with minnow head but I had to let it hang still for the commitment.  I had several other lookers but they just wouldn’t eat it.  Two lines became one but no bump!  Nice day to be on the lake.
