PWT Championships

7 posts in this topic

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.

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.

      I just dont believe that to be a Esox bite at all. Too much space between the Major wounds, IMHO!
    • delcecchi
      That is a strong possibility...

      Here is a photo of the foot.  Looks like a toothy gator.

      http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/07/21/fish-injury-island-lake/   DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — An 11-year-old girl has undergone surgery to repair damage to her foot which might have been caused by a fish in a northeastern Minnesota lake. Maren Kesselhon suffered nine deep lacerations and tendon damage when she was injured while sitting on a paddleboard on Island Lake north of Duluth Wednesday. Maren’s dad, Ryan Kesselhorn, says his daughter told him she could feel her foot in the mouth of a fish and kicked at it with her other foot to free herself. The Dickinson Press reports doctors at Essentia Health, where Maren had surgery, say the razor-sharp cuts, some down to the bone, probably were caused by a fish. Island Lake is home to large muskies and northern pike. A Duluth fisherman caught and released a 47-inch long muskie Wednesday.

      Captain Acorn, I fish Jiggin Raps quite a bit on Vermilion, have for several years now.  I Cast em, fish them vertical and move around and cover ground at a good pace with them.  I am not sure there is any key to getting snagged less, other than knowing your spots. They are certainly an effective and a great way to catch fish.  I personally do not remove either the front or the back hook.  Believe me if you fish these your going to donate a few to the depths, just part of the game.    Good luck! - Roosterman
