What if you run out of film? In two days if the weather is good, I could realistically expect to catch 30-40 pike. Maybe more. We had a 25-fish day on September 15 last year, all but two of which were between 33 and 41 inches. You have to take a pic of the first one, then keep taking a pic of every fish that's bigger than the one before.

Sounds like a blast, but with 400 boats, it would really be a nightmare out there. Where are you going to park 400 boat trailers? How many do you think you will get?

i think that would be a maximum of 200 boats. probably less if there are more than two in any one team. a walk in the park for waskish-------jigglestick--------

The flyer I was sent is not clear on a couple things, first of all, when do you have to check in at West Wind and get the camera? Is it prior to 7 a.m. on Saturday? Also, do you have to be preregistered by the 7th? I won't know if I can fish it until a day or two before the event, can I still get in? How many people are registered so far?

You do not need to pre-register before the seventh, we expct a lot of people to register a couple days before the tournament. Everyone will meet at 7 to get the camera. There are a few teams registered so far, but the more teams there are the more the prizes will be. It should be a fun time for everyone.

hey w.w.! i think i have a couple more teams talked into it from down in the concrete jungle. one fellow was wondering about accomidations. was wondering about setting up a tent for the weekend? i told him it should be no problem with the campground right down the road. maybe some other people are wondering the same thing. the question was brought up about when do you have to be registered by. can you register after 7 a.m. on saturday? i plan on being up there fri night myself. (think i might have an old bar tab to square up smile.gif ). getting excited!!!!!!

Just wondering if anyone knows how many people are in the pike contest. I can't make it and it sounds like the weather is going to be real crummy. I'm just curious how many people signed up and if it is enough of a success that we could try again next year.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips

      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.
    • Captain Acorn
      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish

      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?

      I would call the catfishing this week seasonal.  It is a pretty normal bite for a period of lower water and heat.  The catfish are in post spawn and spread out in their summer haunts.  The more aggressive fish are in the deeper water in the middle of the river.  As usual stay on the move and keep the bait fresh. Bait does not seem to matter still but people with frogs are saying they are getting their better hits with them.

      Wildlife artists can submit entries for the 2018 Minnesota Trout and Salmon Stamp through 4 p.m. Friday, July 28, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  2017 Trout and Salmon Stamp Competition
      First Place: Timothy Turenne Anglers can purchase the trout and salmon stamp validation with their fishing license for an additional $10. For an extra 75 cents, purchasers can receive the pictorial stamp. It is also sold as a collectible for $10.75. Revenue from stamp sales is dedicated to trout and salmon management and habitat work. Trout or salmon must be the primary focus of the design, though other fish species may be included in the design if they are used to depict common interaction between species or are common inhabitants of Minnesota’s lakes and rivers. Brook trout designs are not eligible this year. Artists are prohibited from using any photographic product as part of their finished entries. Winning artists usually issue limited edition prints of the artwork and retain proceeds. Judging will take place Thursday, Aug. 3, at DNR headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul. For more information and contest guidelines, visit mndnr.gov/stamps, or call the DNR Information Center at 651-296-6157 or 888-646-6367. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      It was a main lake break line that went from 18' and dropped into around 30'.  Just a sand transition into mud.   The fish we kept were loaded with small perch and crayfish.

      Fun times

      For winter jigging with Raps I cut off both front and rear hooks and upgrade one size on the middle treble hook. Cliff
