It sounds like a big storm is coming for the weekend. Should make things interesting.

I'll be staying in a rental out of Hunter's.

There is a storm alright and it's between the New owners of Liberty Beach where the contest has been held for years and Frank "old owner of LibertyBeach" along with Hunters resort where the tourney has been moved to.

The New owners of Liberty Beach are basically trying to get an injunction to stop the Hunters tourney.

I'm guessing Frank and the Hunters Resort attorneys are better and BOTH contest will go on.......

Anyway I'll be prefishing tommorow and post back when I return in the evening.

I don't think that the new owners purchased the rights to the Perch Extravangza. Maybe by default they thought they did. But it was called the Lib Beach Perch Extravangza. I doubt Frank had a copy right (Perch Extravangza). If he did or there was something in the sale contract there wouldn't be any question who had the rights to it. It will be interesting to see how this works out. I plan to be there. (Hunters Point)

I think your right I can't see Frank giving up his cash cow but maybe it was agreed to have at Liberty?

Frank "endorsed" the contest to George at Hunters Point. Frank has retired from the resort business.

There was a pic out not too long ago showing Frank, George and Steve at Portside in front of the Perch Extravaganza sign advertising the new location.

Not sure of the legality of Anglers Paradise North keeping the contest at Liberty....We'll find out soon enough I guess. Knowing George, the show will go on!

I'll go out on a limb and say there will be more people at the Liberty Beach tourney then the Hunters Resort contest.

I just checked. $750 for biggest perch at Lib Beach contest. Both same hours 8-2. Why couldn't one of them have their contest on Sunday? I would have fished them both. I might get entry's for both and split up our group for the drawings.

Me and 2-6 others will be up there for the contest. Hope their access holds up. The area in front of hunters has really been cracking open the last few days. Just came back from there today with some nice jumbos. Biggest was well over a pound. Hopeing to find them in the same spot on Saturday. Bit the best early and then were very fussy as it got later. Fished till 11:00, but caught most before 9:30. I think we are all heading back after the contest. Good luck to all.

I will be out of Hunters with 8 friends from The Cities, D`uluth and Wisconsin. Is Hunters going to have the Jumbo board up with all the biggest perch dissplayed? or was that a Liberty beach board? We will be on the mud probably boot or sliver, look for the black pyramid shacks and the party!!

      As far as I'm aware, the two main spawning spots are the Pike River on the east end and Black Lake on the west end. That said I think that walleye are probably spawning in many different areas around the lake. IMO it's kind of fun to look for those hidden gem areas.

      Information about chronic wasting disease and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ management response to its discovery in two deer near Lanesboro will be the focus of a public meeting from 7-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 15, at the Fillmore Central School Auditorium, 702 Chatfield St., in Preston.  DNR staff will explain the disease and why a quick and aggressive response is the most effective way to limit its spread. They also will discuss response measures including establishment of a disease management zone, a special winter deer hunt, landowner shooting permits and the necessity to conduct an aerial deer population survey. Representatives from other state agencies and deer hunting groups also will be available to answer questions. Chronic wasting disease is a fatal brain disease to deer, elk and moose but is not known to affect human health. Prior to this discovery, the disease has only been found in Minnesota in one wild deer harvested near Pine Island in 2010. For more information, including maps of chronic wasting disease surveillance areas, common questions and answers and hunter information, visit the DNR’s CWD homepage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.
