I'm trying to line up a partner. This is a fun time and well run tourney and I don't want to miss it or miss cashing a check again! Most of my friends are Walleye Snobs though so I will have to do some arm twisting maybe!!!

Hmmmm, will the ice be off of Zbay by then?

Think Spring....It's bound to happen!

Fisky,

I'm afraid I lean toward the walleye snob side, but if you're desperate for a partner, it sounds like a good time.

Of course, you can't tell anyone I fished in a Jack tournament!

We've been doing this tournament for 10 years and the ice has always been off. A couple of years ago there was still some in the bat up by the mouth, but by the middle of the first day it was all gone. If anyone gets a chance swing by cabin #1 for a beverage that weekend.

Has it been 10 years already? I've done it quite a few times myself. The year I got second the ice was blowing in from off the mainlake into the jetty area making that area difficult for those that fish there.

Doug I'll get you a E out tonite, your jiggin on the river by now anyhow!

Do you have to register early, or can I do that when I get there on Friday?

You can do it whenever you get there, as late as Saturday morning, before it starts

I'm getting a little nervous about still having ice out there. I've got mixed emotions, i'm not sure if I want the sun to shine, or for it to rain to get rid of the ice.

Sunshine would be nice smile.gif going to be wet soon enough. But you know there could be a 1st time for a not ice out tournament. Cast your lures on top of the ice and see if you can get the jacks to jump through the old holes, or just drink beer. grin.gif

      I have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
