What if you run out of film? In two days if the weather is good, I could realistically expect to catch 30-40 pike. Maybe more. We had a 25-fish day on September 15 last year, all but two of which were between 33 and 41 inches. You have to take a pic of the first one, then keep taking a pic of every fish that's bigger than the one before.

Sounds like a blast, but with 400 boats, it would really be a nightmare out there. Where are you going to park 400 boat trailers? How many do you think you will get?

i think that would be a maximum of 200 boats. probably less if there are more than two in any one team. a walk in the park for waskish-------jigglestick--------

That truck's still bent. The Mazda's pulling the load now with all the bear baits out. Wanna see white knuckles? SATCHMO rode with me for 1/2 a day. I think he would have walked home if he just knew what direction home was. smile.gif Next we'll have to get him to ride with you on the lake,,, or maybe with halads dog. grin.gif

The flyer I was sent is not clear on a couple things, first of all, when do you have to check in at West Wind and get the camera? Is it prior to 7 a.m. on Saturday? Also, do you have to be preregistered by the 7th? I won't know if I can fish it until a day or two before the event, can I still get in? How many people are registered so far?

You do not need to pre-register before the seventh, we expct a lot of people to register a couple days before the tournament. Everyone will meet at 7 to get the camera. There are a few teams registered so far, but the more teams there are the more the prizes will be. It should be a fun time for everyone.

hey w.w.! i think i have a couple more teams talked into it from down in the concrete jungle. one fellow was wondering about accomidations. was wondering about setting up a tent for the weekend? i told him it should be no problem with the campground right down the road. maybe some other people are wondering the same thing. the question was brought up about when do you have to be registered by. can you register after 7 a.m. on saturday? i plan on being up there fri night myself. (think i might have an old bar tab to square up smile.gif ). getting excited!!!!!!
later------jigglestick-------

Just wondering if anyone knows how many people are in the pike contest. I can't make it and it sounds like the weather is going to be real crummy. I'm just curious how many people signed up and if it is enough of a success that we could try again next year.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth. 
    • pikeandchester
      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!
    • leech~~
      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there. 
    • eyeguy 54
      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes. 
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
