Somewhere else I read that these guys also did this at the Fish a Plooza at Forest Lake, that resulted in that event being canceled.  

The perch they caught on Gull was bigger than anything ever seen on the lake.....  Seems fishy.

The Lyogky name has shown up quite often over the years. Wonder what the secret bait is?27750517_907932709357026_4726554920124030633_n.jpg.2c2a60e5a6dfab33c052e3cd437141a4.jpg

Interesting..... I wonder how they would sneak fish in if they were indeed cheating. :confused:

By purchasing a ticket for the contest you agree to take a polygraph at the discretion of the judges or forfeit your prize.

These guys are either crafty at catching pike or larger than average perch in contests or crafty at something else.  I know there were crafty fishermen out there that have things dialed in.

I left that contest not feeling crafty at all. :lol:

It seems to be more than a coincidence but at the same time you have to ask yourself how would even be possible to "sneak in" a 3 pound pike and then keep it alive long enough, especially with 12,000 others watching you?  It just doesn't even seem possible to me.

Something tells me they need to take a look at the cameras at the motel they stayed at and see if anything strange happened. Like pulling some fish out of a cooler before the contest.

Our “Fishing Council” weighed in on this the other day and came up with a couple things that make you say Hmmm...

If this is turning into a business for the group, would they be so crafty as to have under the ice techniques of getting certain fish on their lines?

They stay on the edge.  There are LOTS of private fish houses surrounding the contest area, on Gull at least.  Sure, there’s a neutral zone border but it’s not so far that a line couldn’t get connected somehow or diver could swim from one of the houses. 

I’d rather think these guys were just really that good at this but questions do come up.

Who’s the “ Fishing Council”? Agreed, I think maybe they just knew what they were doing. Like me :lol:. But of course there’s always going to be skeptics asking questions. And when you  have say 30-40k being given away can you help but ask questions? Just a thought.

One of the officials at the maple lake derby last weekend asked a 12ish year old kid what lake he caught his walleye on... he was almost in tears.

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!
    • meerkat
      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way
    • meerkat
      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
    • paceman
      None that I am aware of...Maybe in 10-14 days....

      tried this last year,   not worth it in my opinion.    But I always wondered if I could eat the rusty crayfish.  has anyone tried?
