Hi everybody,

Here I sit in the Ramkota Inn at Bismark, ND where Friday,

Saturday and Sunday the Professional Walleye Trail will

hold its Championship.

I will post stuff here every day if you are interested

you can follow along. It is quite a spectical, the trucks

just keep getting bigger. I havent seen any boats yet.

I can imagine how much fun pre fishing has been the last

couple of days since the ccccccccold began.

Its anyones ballgame at this point. Stay tuned.

This morning is the last of the pre fishing and it is

very cold and I wanted to just sleep late today. So no

I won't pre fish.

The big meeting is tonight when they will go over the

rules so anything I say before then will more than likely

be wrong.

I will start a new thread tonight with good info.

I run the sound board in the arena during the weigh ins

in the civic center for the PWT.

The weigh in will be featured in a live webcast starting

at 5 or 6 pm each night Fri Sat and Sun. You should be

able to see it in all its splendor.

If you go to the in-fish website or professional walleye

trail websites there will be instructions on how to view

the weigh ins.

The first time I was here in 1996 the talk was the river

was pretty low. It is many many many feet lower now and

while fishing is great you need to be careful as you

navigate from point a to point b. All boats will have

shovels and most will have waders or hipboots.

Ron Seelhoff, 6 time event winner and all time money

winner leads the field. And it all starts tomorrow.

      works fine for me but I noticed you have to be logged in to see ice fishing section now. If your not logged in you can still see every other forum Maybe @Rick can get it fixed?

      Like Kidmoe said. about the humidity. This time of year when the furnace is running a lot houses get really dry, and just like us their skin gets dried out. Also make sure their bed or they are not sleeping in front of or by a heat register.  The warmth feels good but it's not helping.

      @YBOutdoors have you tried ice fishing it yet?
    • Hoey
      I really do not do anything different.  I use red UV glow rattle jigging spoons with a minnow head under the Vex.  I use a large fathead on a lightweight, large hook jig under the bobber.

      At this time of the year they are full of eggs and forage.  Not surprised.

      Anyone ice fishing the pike river flowage this year? Main lake or narrows upstream of Hwys 1 or 77? I may go this weekend. Thx
    • Wellesy
      It was pretty "healthy" fish I would say...quite a gut on it.  I'll try and post a pic later.

      So I purchased a 23 inch SUL tickle stick this years model with the white handle ( actually I wanted a 27 inch UL and got home and the rod was a SUL but the box said 27 I’m 200 miles from the store I got it from so can’t juse return it). I got it At the beginning of this season and the very first trip out with it the paint started peeling off the tip. I contacted 13 and they said I had to pay to get a new one because it was my fault and that never happens. That rod has never been abused. I’ve still been using the rod and now about half the paint has come off. I’ve tried sharpie, highlighter. Nothing works the blank of the rod is black so hard for things to show. Has anyone had this issue?

      I use a fish oil that comes in a pump bottle from Menards or FF. This stuff makes a huge difference for my dog. It calls for one tablespoon or 1 pump per 10 lbs so my pup gets 7 or 8 pumps on his kibble.  i also try to run the poor mans humidifier (boiling pot on the stove) on the really cold days. It has been extra cold and dry so far this year though.
