Tournament

2 posts in this topic

We have a place on a small lake in the Brainerd area. On most Saturdays there is a "shotgun" start of 8 - 10 bass boats for some sort of informal tourney. How do I find out if these people have a permit to hold such events. I don't mind an occasional tourney but I've seen a few too many dead fish on the shores lately. I will admit I have self interest, but I don't think a small 600 acre lake can endure such pressure without adverse affects. I don't think these guys care if they screw up the lake, they'll just find a new one next year for their games. Can you call TIPS on something like this. Thanks for any help

Hey Gator, You can contact the DNR. From what i have heard and the fishing that i have done, if you have under 25 anglers on the water in the tournament, or entree fees under 25.00, you dont need a permit. But these rules could have changed. The best bet for you is to contact the DNR via phone or email, they will give you all the information you will need. Good Luck

      Well never made it to Monticello but did make it to the rum 2 smallies one 17inch and one 14 inch One on float and fly black and blue jig other on a white berkley gulp jerk shad.   And you can target walleyes and smallies every winter with a long rod you just need to know where to go

      Hi all new to the forum, only have 2 days left for fishing the elusive eyes.  Any input on depths and lakes to go on in the Detroit Lakes area would be great

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps
