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

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man met me on the lake today and I showed him I am a skilled angler! lol we had a great fish fry! My old man only added one crappie and 5 gills to the bunch

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
