I got this response in March:

"We are having a meeting next week to determine the status of the bass challenge for this year. The only thing that is certain is that it will not be in June like it has been the last 2 years due to other events going on at that time. We will be sending out information in early April regarding the tournament.

Thanks,

Todd Ginter

Tourism and Events Director"

AND THEY ARE TRYING TO MAKE IT MORE FOR THE LESS EXPERIANCED ANGLERS AND BY MAKING IT MULTI SPECIES IT WOULD STEER AND I QOUTE "YOU PRO GUYS" OUT SO APPARENTLY BASS TOURNEY GUYS ARE NOT WELCOME.

      Got one over 40in on a small local lake like 3-4 yrs back , 2lb line...fishing panfish. Got a pic up in the St cloud reports somewhere. But biggest was just shy of 43 on Rainey River about 20 yrs ago

      If you make up it up this way at all I'll have the peg on a good bite somewhere. Sometimes traveling a little farther north makes ice fishing more enjoyable. Keep on posting, we have tons of well educated anglers that roam these forums!

      I'm slacking bud, I haven't done any of that yet lol. The excitement is here though, been talking to some co-workers lately about all things ice fishing. Soon enough guys!!

      My troubles are that even with the hyfax on the slides the munchkin take a little bit of a kick to get started.    My sled does not have studs and has carbides on the skis. So when I hook up to the house with the tow bar the track spins without breaking the house loose. It's like hooking it to a truck. Too much power on the sled side and no ability to transfer it to forward motion.    The 4-wheeler with chains has zero problems. Pulls it like it's not even there.

      I'd like to see this expanded to help revive our pike size and population.
