Walleye Classic Pokegama Lake Grand Rapids

Recommended Posts


Just to let you know, the Chamber's 2012 Catch, Record and Release Walleye Tournament, sponsored by Paul Bunyan Communications, will take place on Pokegama Lake on June 16, 2012. This will be the best tournament yet and there are a few changes in the format this year starting with both the Rules Meeting, on June 15th, and Award Ceremony, on June 16th, taking place under a tent in the L&M Parking lot on South Highway 169.

The Tournament Committee is planning a fun couple of days starting with a community/family outing in conjunction with the Friday,

June 15th, 2012 Rules Meeting. Their plan is to include lots of stuff such as seminars, the Let's Go Fishing booth, Kiwanis fish baskets, Up-North Kettle Corn, Marla’s Curb Side Craze (ice cream), some vender displays, a DNR Invasive Species booth, the Itasca County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue Team and kids’ activities. There will be room to display 15 Competitors Boats during the Rules Meeting Event. The first 15 boats registered will have the option to be one of the boats on display.

In addition, 1st Place, 2nd Place and 3rd Place will be guaranteed at $5,000, $3,000 and $2,000 respectively regardless of how many boats are registered for the event and the entry fee has been reduced to $250 per boat. Places 4 through 10 will be paid based on the number of boats registered.

The web-site is in the process of being up-dated to reflect the changes for 2012, so check it periodically starting in February and get your registration in early to qualify for the boat display option.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!

      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.
