29 posts in this topic

Hosted by the Wigwam each of the first two appear to be 50 boat tournaments. How fast do they fill and what is the payout like?

Very nice events, sadly they dont fill but they should.

The Wigwams website says nothing about any of these

tournaments. Do a search here on FM and you will find

lots to read about them

Lund Boats is currently working in cooperation with Kevin Olmstead to develope a tournament poster in pdf. format that will appear on the Wigwam's site hopefully this week and hopefully a bait shop and convenience store around the state very soon. Word is, that Lund is also upping the anty to these tournaments by offering contingency prize dollars to the highest placing team that fishes both days of the tournements out of a Lund. This is above and beyond the "big-fish" prize that they already sponsor for each day of the tournaments.

Travis, If Fisky can't fish with ya, I can. My Streiffs partner isn't interested in any of them, so if anyone is in need of a partner shoot me some mail, or post here. Whatever I might lack in fish catching skills, I more than make up for in BS and beer drinking (after the weigh-in of course).

I'll throw my hat in the ring as well. I've wanted to fish these events the past couple years. I can probably pull it off this year but don't think my usuall partner will be able to. I could bring my boat if need be, but would prefer not to. Anyone else looking for a partner?

Is there a link to any more information on these in regards to entry fee/rules?

How about the Lund contingency? Any word on that and how much?

Thanks

It tough to find anything on line about this. You can

watch the Wigwam website but they havent had anything to

this point.

Its best to call the Wigwam, but if you can hang on few

days I will have a poster for you

You can look for information on Wigwam's web site starting next week. There will either be a page dedicated to the poster we've created or a link that will bring up a pdf file of the poster. This will be the case for all three tournaments this year.

And as Ripper mentioned, new for this year, for all three tournaments, Lund Boat Company is offering an additional $500 cash to the highest placing team that fishes both days out of a Lund boat. Good luck to all and let's fill this event up. Fishing has probably never been better on L.O.W.

Oh, by the way, listen to Curt Quesnell & North Country Outdoors Radio next Wed, Thurs & Fri mornings for live updates of the 2nd event of the Professional Walleye Trail at Winneconne, WI. It sounds like the fish have completed their spawn and are dispersing to many locations around the Winnebago chain of lakes. Should be fun and very interesting. See you on the radio!

Will they still allow guys from Fargo to sign up for the Fall one? Tips and I fished the first couple together, looks like I might have to make my way back up there.

Ripper, you're in for Devils in August.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
