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.

      What are your guys thought on what this warm weather is going to do to the lakes. I hope it gets warm enough to settle the snow and allow the slush that is out there to freeze.

      Things have become pretty hit or miss for my house out there.  I fished last week from Tuesday through Sunday; alas, school started yesterday so it's back to the real world for now.  During afternoon primetime, I caught between zero fish (yes, I got skunked one night) and 12.  Daybite was very tough (mainly because I quit fishing and either went hiking over at Kathio, tip-up fishing in the bays, or went down and looked at guns at Boone's), but the reports I heard from those fishing hard during the day made that decision fairly easy.     The overnight bite was pretty steady, with multiple fish each night coming on the rattle reels.  I pulled the lines twice because I got sick of catching 15-17'' walleyes.    Sunrise was also hit or miss.    All in all, it's not early ice anymore, that's for sure.  I'm still fishing fairly shallow, and it might be time to move the house.  Biggest fish all weekend was just under 28''.  I still have only one keeper in my current location despite catching well over 100 walleyes there in the last few weeks.  The last week or so was pretty strange...at least two nights either me or my friend caught more than 10 fish while the other guy, fishing less than 15 yards away, caught very few.  Why the fish can be loaded in one spot and non-existent a few feet away, and then switch the next night so the "hot" house goes cold, is a mystery to this fisherman. Maybe they swim counter-clockwise around the lake one night and then turn around and swim clockwise the next?
