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 don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.

      I did that with tango and saw a world of difference ... I started at Sand Pines and they helped me tons. The kid brought me out kept all the pheasants caged and would plant one at a time in a easy spot where I could see where he planted. I would let tango out we would flush it shoot retrieve come back I would put him in the car and we did that 3 times. After that he then planted the rest of the ones I bought and we found all but one. Next spot I brought him was Golden Meadows and they were helpful as well I had them flag the general area the pheasants were planted. I went there a couple times and each time they used less flags and planted the birds farther away from the flags they did have out. Until the last time I went used no flags at all.

      As if there was any question...definitely be careful on those high current lakes.  I went through (walking) on Koetter tonight. Thankfully I only plunged one leg in to the hip and was able to scramble away.   Its a spot I have been a dozen times in the past few years.  I knew the ice got thinner in this area but was always passable and I followed a 4 wheeler or tank track and then a foot/sled path so I thought I would stay dry.  I was ON the path when I got wet.  Had picks around my neck and glad I did even if I didn't use them (happened SO fast).  The walk back to the car was more than a little nerve wracking.  Not sure I'll ever fish that spot again.  And in the future I wont be so trusting of other's tracks.  Spud on...   tg
