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!!

      Refresh my memory... If we just go into Trout Lake for the day, we are not required to get a permit in advance. We just fill out the form at the portage. Is that correct?
    • Avid Angler
      Yeah that is the one.

      Thanks for the information!  Whenever I'm moving, I use a ram mount to secure my bow mount. I just got the Ulterra this spring.  I had a Terova on my last boat. I was going across the lake in 3 footers and the locking mechanism failed and the motor deployed. Ever since then, I secure it for a piece of mind.

      One of my trolling motor batteries decided to take a crap on me so it didn't have enough power to go into the wind so  that made it tough...we tried a few drifts in areas that looked good for eyes, but didn't pan out....We went to a different spot and started catching nice sized gills on the rigs so we decided to just say screw walleyes and go for gills (I could tell the gf wasn't digging the 20mph wind in the face lol). So we went to a spot I've fished in the winter and ended up catching a 20,24"...We caught them not to long before we left right in the same area.... I've never fished it in the summer before so I wasn't expecting much...The look on my gfs face when she caught the 24 was priceless though so I was happy.

      In no way am I trying to fire up a catch and release vs catch and grease fight.  Admins, please delete any comments like that. I am curious about everyone's thoughts and knowledge on mercury in fish.    It seems Walleye are always the riskiest fish to eat via DNR and MDH surveys but I know the fishing for eyes is such a tradition up here. A lot of walleye are eaten in Minnesota every year as well as Pike and Bass which also can be high in mercury because they are high on the food chain. Does anyone worry about it or is this something that is overhyped? I'm a bit careful where I fish because my wife is pregant and I don't want her eating too much mercury. I'm still kinda new to the state so I trust the knowledge of locals more so than DNR in a lot of situations.    For example, in TN (where I moved from) our DNR says do not eat ANY fish from the Mississippi river. I'd say it's pretty nasty by the time it gets that far south but there are river rats as far down as Louisiana eating catfish and bass all year long and you don't hear of them dying from mercury poisoning or having other effects of it. At least not thay I've heard or read.    I'm very curious to know your opinions on the matter. I don't catch many walleye anyway but I do love eating Pike and other fish. It's so satisfying to work hard for a fresh meal but do I have to continue to be super cautious of what lakes I eat a Pike from? Seems like the closer to the metro, the more dangerous it can be...or is it? Some of the huge lakes up North are full of mercury too.

      Well it end up being 2 broken live well pumps being broken.  The pumps would pump water into the live wells but also be spraying water into the back compartment of the boat.  That's where my water was coming from.  I would like to thank those that replied suggestions back.
