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!

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.

      The fact that ppl have to reserve a campsite is absolute BS. The only thing the park accomplished by making ppl reserve campsites is lowering the amount of ppl who visit the park.

      Ive had the same issue.  I turned both the motor and remote of for 30 seconds or so and then worked fine.  it has happened twice for me.  Hope its not reoccurring which would be very annoying.  For the cost,  this stuff should work.  I wonder if they are I-link motors?  Mine is.

      How has the bite been this weekend?  Not able to fish this weekend due to graduations.  Shiners still working?
