Thanks!

We currently have 35 paid entries with a few more on the way that i know of. Still plenty of room for more. If you want an entry form just let me know and i will email you one. Should be a good time. I prefished the lake the other day and caught enough walleyes for a meal and a bunch of bass. Hope they keep biting like that on the 11th. We will also be giving away some door prizes donated by area businesses. For those of you that have never fished this before, it is designed to be a fun relaxed tournament. You can fish with as many as you want out of your boat, and fish are weighed individually. Hope to see ya there and good luck fishing

      Thanks for the advice Dave  I dont let Finn fetch on check cord any more. I only used it when he was a pup

      There are public beaches at both Hoodoo Point in Tower and McKinley Park in Soudan. Cliff

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs

      Vermilion is less than 20 miles... Or eagle nest 3 (and 1 and 2) are right next door.   You might check them out.

      Love seeing guys out training dogs but you can really do  some serious damage to your dogs neck if it runs hard for a long distance before being stopped suddenly when the check cord is attached to a collar. I would suggest a harness instead that has attachment at the back that you can clip your check cord to. It will also flow off the back and less likely to get tangled up in the legs and belly which can also be dangerous especially when in the water.   It doesnt look deep where you are but you never know whats under the water that could snag your check cord. Sorry dont mean to preach but I have seen it first hand where a dog has been seriously injured from this. I know the prey drive and hard charge these dogs have, but you got to keep them safe.   good luck

      Can you keep smallies from the Ottertail?  Thought there was a restriction on them in there.

      If I go on an infected water I get it cleaned regardless.  Granted 99% of the time I fish a non-infected lake but still get it cleaned just incase.
