Anyone know of upcoming tournaments... I'd like to get into a few.

I've fished the Devils Lake Tournament one time, but other than that - never really fished tournaments.

If you could post tournaments and dates, that would be excellent... Also, let me know if there are any tournaments that allow portable houses.

THANKS

There are a bunch:

1.Brainerd Jaycees Ice fishing extravaganza slated for Jan 26

2.8th annual "challenge" Lake L'Homme Dieu in Alexandria on February 9.

3.Forest Lake Ice Fishing contest February 16

Well not a bunch, but enough to keep you busy. Looks like all have a lot of good prizes. The brainerd one looks to be the best. giving away a new truck and boat and a lot of cash prizes. Lastly, these look to be house free, so dress warm.

I'll have to check my schedule and see if any of these match up with my days off. good luck. the Perch

Actually I think it's the Glyndon Rod and Gun Club that sponsers this one. Not that it really matters I guess.

Are you from Glyndon Ludzy??

Nope not from Glyndon, I live in Fargo.

I have a buddy who lives there. He turned me on to this tournament 3 years ago. I didnt make it out this year. Heard the big walleye was about 10.5 lbs. this year. Good Job to that guy!

There is a tournament on Lida this saturday (09Feb08) that is being put on by the local Jaycees. As far as I know, it is ten dollars to enter and starts at one o'clock. Thought someone out there may want to know.

Are you sure that is the correct date? I am interested if so. I went to look for more information about it and I found a website that said it was on January 27th? The link to where I found that info was: [Note from admin: Please read forum policy before posting again. Thank you.]

I'm pretty sure he's correct on the date. I've heard it advertised on the radio (KRCQ 102.3 FM out of DL) it is being put on by the Pelican Rapids Area JC's.

Will the holes be predrilled, can you fish anywhere, or do you have to drill them in a given area? Do you have to fish on the ice... geeze sounds like I am planning to cheat... nope. Hate fishing on the ice when its cold and I have a few spots that I would like to fish if I entered grin.gif What are the prizes (first few is sufficient)?

Thanks ALOT!

I can't answer all of your questions, but as far as for the one about prizes goes.... The radio ad says that there is over $1100.00 in prizes with an aqua view camera being given away.

It doesn't sound like they have the prizes like the one last weekend in PR had, but may be fun to go to. Although -6 for a high on Saturday may keep me away.

Does that mean would be sitting on the ice? If that is the case it would have to be much warmer than -6! I am a fair weather tourney man. eek.gif

Not sure, but most ice tournaments don't allow portables. Although, under those circumstances, I would have to think that they would almost have to, or not have anybody show up.

From what I was told tonight, they are allowing portables this year. I am not sure how reliable this information is but thats what I was told. I can't imagine them saying no since it is supposed to be so cold with such high wind.

Just read on the Fargo Forum web site that the Pelican Rapids JC's tournament scheduled for tomorrow has been re-scheduled until next Saturday the 16th. A look at the extended forcast shows highs near 30 next Saturday, so that is a good decision to switch it in my book.

      Hi folks... I wanna specifically address fishermen and women, boaters, outdoorsmen and women, and their spouses and significant others. Also, anyone who believes that our right to access public waterways supported by our tax dollars, and managed for our benefit by the DNR, should not be infringed upon by special interests... listen up... You may or may not know about a new program in Wright County to limit access to three lakes in the Annandale area where wealthy lake-home associations have coerced the County Board into implementing a pre-launch "AIS Inspection Station" in the city of Annandale. Anyone wishing to launch a watercraft on Lakes Sylvia, Pleasant, and John, must first travel to the city of Annandale (miles away from any boat landing), go through an inspection process, and be given permission to launch their boat in the form of a zip-tie on the trailer. There are MANY problems with this inspection regime. One problem is its hours of operation. It is open from sunup to sundown. This means that if you wish to go fishing in the evening, or at night, or early in the morning, you must first travel to Annandale THE DAY BEFORE you wish to access the lake, and get your zip-tie. Needless to say, this will undoubtedly prove to be a big enough burden on boaters and anglers that many will simply choose to go elsewhere, which, we contend, is the unstated goal of the Lake Associations who have funded this effort to lobby the County Board. They want non-residents off "their" lake. Another problem is the fact that these lakes are already unfortunately infested with AIS, which means inspecting boats on the way IN to the lake makes no logical sense. Only inspecting boats in their way OUT of an infested lake will have any chance of slowing or halting the spread of AIS. Another problem is that local businesses in Annandale, Southhaven, and to a lesser extent Clearwater and Maple Lake, will be adversely affected by the reduction in commerce that WILL occur as people from outside these fine communities decide to take their watercraft elsewhere. Another problem is the scope of this program, and the stated goals of those who are promoting it. They have said point-blank that they hope to have every county in MN look to Wright County as an example of what can be pushed through, as Lake Associations state-wide are organizing their resources and their political clout in an effort to see similar County ordinances implemented throughout Minnesota. This could, in the future, lead to a scenario where every boater who does not own lake property will first be required to travel to a central County Inspection Station in whatever county they wish to launch their boat, before they will be given permission to launch at a lake that may be many miles away from the station. We believe this is an infringement on the rights of Minnesota boaters and sportsmen to freely and responsibly access our public waterways. Even the DNR is skeptical of this program, but since it is a county matter, they are accepting it for now. Sorry for the lengthy statement. Now I'd like to ask you to take action. We have organized a social media page, over 600-strong now.... Our goal is to gather as many concerned people as we can in this group - and then appeal to the Chambers of Commerce in these fine cities, to organize themselves and appeal to the County Board for a reversal of this misguided policy, on the grounds that it will harm them economically as people take their dollars elsewhere to avoid the infringement of the inspection regime. If you haven't already, and you are concerned about liberty to access public waterways without undue burdens placed upon your access, would you consider lending your voice to ours, and joining our group? Thank you! Join Us!

      My wife, son and I we're on Crystal Lake in Burnsville several years ago. My son was 14-1/2 yrs. old at the time, I use to let him drive the gravel roads up at deer camp all the time and let him back the trailer into the spot, he got pretty good at it. Anyway, back to the boat ramp at Crystal Lake. I dropped the wife and son off on the dock and waited my turn to load up...a local cop was at the ramp and my wife asked if it was ok if he backed in, he didn't mind.. vehicles were waiting and my son drops it in on the first try! Proud dad moment 👍👍
