Heading out the door for the annual bunny tournament. Wondering if anyone else on here gets together with friends for anything like this. 13 guys 3 groups 8 am to 4 pm. Last year it took lots of bunnies to win. Outlook is lower this year as snow has drifted in the wood lots making it tough going.

Its an organized hunt that is out of a local bar. We shoot cottontails. You have to clean them after you check in or your points will not count. Three points for a head shot with a 22 2 points for a dead rabbit shot with 22 1 point for dead rabbit shot with shotgun. Its a blast rabbit stew after we also fry some up. Since the bar is just out side of town we hae a shoot of for prices.

Yangbeagle Welcome to the forum.

It looks like this was posted back a few years in 2009. The way I'm reading it sounds like just a bunch of guys getting together for their own bunny hunt tourny.  :)

This year the late snow would have made for snowshoe hunting.

      i will be up in the area but not sure i will hit the chain.  the history with me and opener on the chain has not been productive so this year I am finding a smaller shallow lake in the area and going to hit it for walleyes.  I have not asked my father in law what the temps were but he has hit south cross and clamshell a few times and when fish are caught they have been on the smaller side.  Good Luck to you!

      If I snagged an anchor line I am pretty sure i would not ask the anchored angler to lift so I can get my jig back, but I am sure I would warn them that there is a hook now in there anchor line!  I am that way fishing around docks...if I get caught on a dock I will always butt up to it and carefully remove my hook so they do not stick themselves or have a little kid get stuck from it.  Amazingly I have had confrontations with people in this regard!  And it is not like i am pitching bass jigs as I am usually crappie fishing around docks so i am using light line, small hook and cork bobber so I am not hurting a dock if i accidentally cast into it.  Oh well...Good luck to all you Vermillion fisherman on opener and in the rest of the season!

      No one's been out on the chain?

      Twin City Outboard in Shakopee only works on old motors.  They do great work and the pricing is reasonable.

      My 1960 Johnson Seahorse is on the fritz. I did an overhaul the over the winter rebuilding the carb, replacing dry fuel hoses, fixing two stripped bolts (helicoils) on the powerhead, etc... This spring she only wants to run on one cylinder. I am assuming that it's the coil or something similar but suck at the electrical side.    Great American Marine in Bloomington won't touch old motors anymore. Neither will Boat Motor Recyclers in Burnsville (1990 and up!).    Does anyone up near Vermilion still work on older motors? I'll take a recommendation for somewhere near the lake or in the Twin Cities. Any input is appreciated.

      It all depends. My go-to opener presentation is dragging a #7 perch rap when closer to the spawn. With the water temps as they are, I think that I'll be jigging and slip-bobbering with whatever works, but I usually start out with rainbows.

      I'm only 5'8 so it's swimming for me.

      thanks for the heads up!  I think most, if not all of us are aware that the border is closed since it has caused a lot of trip cancellations!  Hopefully they will find a way to let us fishing fools up into their country sooner than later, as I am sure their tourism industry is hurting and could use the money the foreign vacationers spend!

      In Black Bay I think it's called wading, not swimming 😀

      I will be in the area camping in a couple of weeks. Wondering if these two lakes are any good for shore fishing for kids. Been trying to do research but there hasn't been much update on the lakes! Would love to catch a few trout for the kids to enjoy. Any tip/advice would be great thanks!!
