Yes they have begun. I was going to post up early in the week and never had the time so my apologize on missing the first one. They are every tuesday night from now til September and then the switch to sunday mornings. Competition starts at 5:00 sharp so be there alittle before and just as who is holding the money. It is a shotgun start from Fishermans inn landing. This is a pay access so if you don't feel like paying you will have to put in at sandy or pondy. It is 20 bucks a boat you can fish with a partner or by yourself. IF you get there late no big deal just bring you money to the weigh in which is at 9:00. You will need a way to keep your fish alive for the duration of the tourney. And a stringer is not recomended however you can use a cooler and an aerator will get it done. These are very low key tourneys and everything is on your honor as far as fishing goes. It is a 5 bass limit large or small mouth and they must be 12" or greater and no live bait. There are some good sticks out there so come ready however don't feel as if you need a bass boat to compete. They are 100% payout and they pay a new position for every 5 boats. If you have never done a tourney before and you would like to get your feet wet this is a great place to start. If you fish it make sure you say hi to me i will be wearing my trusty mister twister visor and driving a blue and white Crestliner. Introduce yourself. if you have any more questions post up or shoot me an e-mail ikeslayer@hotmail.com

i hope i covered everything. i would love to see the rochester forum make a strong appearance and run away with it. ike

Ike,

I'll probably dig out the bass gear here in a couple weeks and I imagine I'll partake in a few of these Tuesday night bass tourneys.

yep we had our 5 we had 7lbs 6 oz and all largies. We caught one smally all night but he went short so back in the drink, no huge fish brought in but a couple pushing 4. I saw mostly largies weighed there was one 3lbs+ smallie but mostly largies. i hope you are getting pumped up tyler. nothing like fishing for some $$$$$

The second tourney happened last night it took 12 pounds to win it. That is a real good bag for the zum. second was 10 something and third was 10 as well. Stelz and i finished 5th with a 9lbs 9 oz sack. Good showing last night but the fish weren't as cooperative as we found them last week. But the quality was better. If you are looking to get some tourney experience i would encourage you all to try it. I won't be able to make it for the next couple so i will be rooting for you all. ike

She caught 2 good smallies but i couldn't boat a keeper. Thought i had them figured out and then i got humbled. Hope to see some of ya out there. ike

Just wondering if there is a tournament this coming Tuesday the 3rd? Thought I might give it a try with my brother in law even though we don't know much about bass fishing on Zumbro. Sounds like a fun time.

Blast off is at 5 from fishermans in so be there a little bit before and just ask the line of boats who is holding the money(usually the winner from the week before). it sure is a good time looking forward to meeting you. ike

Thanks for the updates Ike,

I'm still trying to fit one of these tourneys in my schedule. I'm sure I'll get whooped, but a $10-$20 learning lession is cheap in my eyes.

      I remember that video, pretty darn cool!

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!
    • slammer
      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?
    • EyeChsr
      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!
    • JIvers
      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.
    • JerkinLips
      9-11am was best time both days.
    • littlebear
      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well. 
    • monstermoose78
      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around
    • Wanderer
      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....

        Nice fish , great pics ,, what times of the day were best for you ?
