8th Annual Wigwam Fall Classic

7 posts in this topic

Can anyone tell me why no one is talking about this upcoming tournament? This is one of the premiere tournaments for the average angler that that likes to fish LOW and the Rainy. I would like to hear some hype and anticipation about this fun event. Although I myself have never fished this event I plan to this year. Last year I was there fishing that weekend but was not aware of the event until it was to late to enter frown.gif I am hoping for a break in the weather and good concentrations of fish in the river... OH and 1st place in the tournament grin.gif

Has it been really quiet here lately or is it just me having to much time to stare at this screen? confused.gif

We will be there. I love the event and am real thankful

for the work that is put into it.

I was there last weekend to sign up and there were 12 teams

signed up. Thats the rub, people dont sign up for it until

just before the rules meeting the night before the contest

begins.

There are 3 events, maybe an extra benefit for signing up

for all 3 or a firm cut off date would get people entering

early. However, they dont fill up and never have so its

hard to turn teams away with empty slots cutting down the

prize money.

Looking forward to it, it is a very good tournament!

      Just wondering why no more fishing reports/updates from lake of the woods tourism on this site? They still put one on LSF every week or so. On a side note was up to the lake last weekend for some maintenance to the cabin went for a walk down graceton beach toward zipple. Lots of debris on shore from melting ice. Picked up what we could, lots left.

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
