2006 Annual Diamond Lake Tournament Results

Recommended Posts

walleyeking#8

Just like last year, the weather turned out to be perfect for an excellant day of fishing. For some teams the walleyes cooperated and for others it turned out to be a tough bite. The tournament started at 7:00am the morning of the 19th and ran until 2:00pm that afternoon. Seven teams showed up for this annual event. Hopefully it will continue to grow each year. The interest was there, but many teams had other commitments that day. At the end of the day, four of the seven teams brought in fish to be measured. Like last year, team Pietig brought in some real nice fish. But unlike last year, Bryan was fishing with his brother Kyle this year. The two of them brought in a six fish limit, with the fish measuring 23",21",19",18",18",and 17". This was more than enough to take home first place. Coming in second was my brother and I with four fish and third went to team Coleman. Team Johnson also brought in one fish. I would like to personally thank all who participated in this years event and hope everyone will return again next year for the annual diamond lake walleye tournament. Congratulations to team Pietig on being the 2006 champs.

I think I speak for all when I say we really appreciate the amount of time walleyeking has put in to the league and tournaments. It was good to see a few more fish get caught than last year with a bunch of short fish coming from everyone the way it sounded, couldnt have asked for better weather after a few days of crap. I hope I will be living closer next year so we can get back in the league as well.

      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....
