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!!!!!!
later------jigglestick-------

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.

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.
    • IceHawk
      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure 
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.
    • The Chemist
      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.
    • eyeguy 54
      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.

      I would fish them trees
