Guess not. My kid won a prize, so that was cool. It would have been nice if they had actually bothered to enforce the rule about no augers after the tourney started though. We had people drilling holes all around us all day...kinda annoying.

I was there and yeah it seemed like that there was alot of drillin going on during the contest. I cought one big perch about 3min in and that was it for the rest of the day. G/f was with and she got nibbles but nothing held on. Seemed to be alot of youngsters winning prizes this year.

I caught about a 3 oz perch right away, and that was it for me...I mostly just watched my kid fish and helped him as needed. The only bummer was that the fish 1 spot smaller than him won a new auger and one spot bigger won a portable fish house, but his spot won a junky cooler and little chair!

It should be noted that while dad was disappointed with that, son didn't care a bit, and was thrilled that he won a prize. Which is probably a better way to look at it smile

They REALLY need to enforce the auger rule next year...it's been bad the last couple years. Other than that though, a VERY well run event.

You should be VERY proud that you had your kid out there and he was able to enjoy the sport of fishing and he even was a prize winner. We have a ton of kids now days who don't have the chance to enjoy this sport. I was hoping to make it out there and bring my boy's but the promotional side of this industry had me locked up this past weekend.

I'm always happy to take my boy out, and when little boy #2 (now 15 months old) is ready, he'll be welcome too smile

Do I get to do a lot of actual fishing? Heck no smile It's mostly baiting hooks and teaching, but I couldn't care less. I'm just glad that I'm able to give him opportunities I never had as a kid, and I know that SOME day he'll be able to do that stuff on his own, and I can get back to fishing smile

      Good bite in the East end this weekend.  No big ones but lots of eater size walleyes coming to the boat.  Even got a bonus chewy, gave my seven year old all he could handle!

      WOW!!!

      Here a picture taken by Becky Nelson from Intl Falls facing north towards Fort Frances around 8pm...

      Saturday we hit the South Shore in 30-60' for water.  Multiple hits and releases off the boards, dipseys, and downriggers but no hookups. Went something like 1 for 10 with a nice 29" walleye taken off a pink Husky Jerk and 3 oz of lead on board line.  Marked quite a few fish throughout that depth.

      The pictures were from Amazon, if you can't find it locally.   Jann's Netcraft has a lot of that stuff also. Comes in a variety of thicknesses/strengths.   Some folks use crimped sleeves especially with the thicker stuff.

      Yup!  14 will get cut, as will 20 from time to time.  I’ve run enough different fluorocarbon to get to the conclusion 20 lb is the best combination of fish ability and pike protection for the gear I use.  Anything less and the bite offs are easy.  Anything more and the stiffness kills the action too much and is hard to tie.   I’ll be looking for those leader materials you posted though.  I need something like that for a couple muskie rigs I want to experiment with.

      Vermilion is in low 70's

      A decent pike will bite through 20 pound flouro in a heatbeat.  Certtainly 14 pound like happened to me yesterday....

      Still a good bite on the rocks, just fewer humps having fish. Takes some searching to find a group. However, the fish still on the rocks are biters...and some big ones. I've been spending part of each day pulling cranks with lead core or flat lining and that is putting lots of fish in the boat also. I'm not seeing the huge schools in the mud anymore, just pods here and there but very fishable. Also catching some jigging. The water is amazingly cool still...below 70 every morning off the south shore. It has been a while since so many fish have been hanging within a few miles of the south shore. Boats are scattered over a huge area from around 28 feet and out. Sure nice not having to make long runs all the time. Fall fishing could be terrific this year with all the fish still on the south side. Forgot to mention the lack of algae blooms. Can't remember a year without major blooms by mid August. Good luck
