Hello I have been tossing the idea of trying some tourny fishing next ice season. Was wondering if anyone on here does that? Any helpful hints would be great. Thanks in advance

Hey @sheldy4, were you looking to enter a few different tournaments put on by various towns/organizations or were you looking to enter a Tournament Series like the Ultimate Panfish League, NAIFC, MN Made, etc.?

I have fished in the Ultimate Panfish League for the last 4 seasons and I have really enjoyed it. I have learned a ton about Panfishing, how to break down a lake, how to catch bigger fish, etc. thanks to fishing this series. All the series' I listed above are all meant to be 2-person teams. One thing that is worth noting is that although you don't NEED it for the UPL, it would be wise for your team to have access to at least 1 Snowmobile, ATV, Side by Side, etc. for tournament day as Vehicles (your car, truck, etc.) are not allowed. It has been a great experience for me as I said I've learned a ton, had a lot of fun and met a lot of great people through fishing tournaments.

@MN BassFisher I'm not sure on which ones. Like I said it's something I would like to do. I'm not to sure where to get the info so any help on that would be great. Atv or snowmobile I can cover with no problem.

      Yeah I'm planning and scouting starting next week.  Any help is appreciated.   Also a reminder....   You will need a new fishing license as of 3/1/19.  The warden often comes by to say "hi"  and chat for a bit at our gathering.   I would hate to have someone forget.   Especially me. 😉

      I got stuck on West Rush Wednesday.  Thanks to Nick?  P  from Rush City for helping me get out.  I couldn't budge.  Mike from Mike's towing was going to come out and rescue me but Nick saved me a bundle!  Thanks, Mike for being willing to come out on the ice.    Just wondering how travel is on Rush and Pokegama this weekend.  I will be hesitant go get out until the snow gets packed down on a bit.!!!

      Might want to have him call a realtor but I think there is something open in that strip mall behind McDonald's. A friend retired and closed his jewelry store and that spot might work good. I think it's called Pokegama  Plaza. Next to Edward Jones and Sears.

      Hey PRO V, you wouldn't happen to know of any office spaces for rent in rapids would you? My co worker is maybe thinking of moving our office up there if he can find a reasonable price and enough room for his cabinets.

      I am going to put a get together on Blue Lake in March!! I am thinking the second weekend at the time. My question is would Saturday or Sunday be best for most of you? This will be out of the north access as I have work on finding a good spot with active fish yet. Please let me know and if you are interested in helping find a spot with active fish. Thanks
