The lakes that are on the list will not be published and pre-fishing will not be allowed. We will draw the lakes just prior to each event. This will be a true mystery and should be a lot of fun!!

Who wants to test their finest fishing skills?? grin.gif

Hey Chuck,

Glad to see that the lakes will NOT be published.

How about printing out lake maps of the lakes that will be in the hat, 1 for each team and then have them at the ready once the lake is chosen for distribution.

Also,
I propose that we all meet at the Cenex truckstop to do the lake draw the morning of at like 8 am. That way we could get some breakfast and then have time to head out, get bait or whatever. It is also right on the intersection of 2 and 71...easy access to all main roads out of town and right by Bluewater Bait. We could even reserve their meeting room for our group. If this will work, let me know and I'll reserve it for us.

This might work best since not everyone will be staying at Ethans.

I agree that meeting there would be a great idea as getting in an out at Ethan's could be tricky with that many boats & trucks in the morning. And a good breakfast before we head out is an awesome idea!

I was trying to brain storm a meeting place, so great idea, Tom. Let's all meet for breakfast at Cenex, and there's also Pete's Place across the road too if we fill the place smile.gif

We will draw the lake there and head out. Plan on meeting at Cenex (junction Hwy 2 and Hwy 71) at 8am sharp!
I'm tentatively planning on eating breakfast around 7am, drawing the lake at 8:00am to give all teams enough time to get bait and drive to the lake.

I will take care of the maps for the lakes.

I'll reserve the room tonight. If it is already taken, there still should be enough room for all. If not, we could do the drawing in the lot.

Let Mark know he'll have a mad rush at 8:10!!...LOL

No go on the room...booked all day.

We'll just need to split up and then meet in the lot at 8?

Between Petes Place and Cenex, there should be plenty of tables for breakfast. There's plenty of room in cenex's lot for us to meet in.

Any update on attendance?

I may know someone that is looking for a partner. With or without a boat I think something could be worked out.

If you are looking for some one to fish with post it here!

I'm in, what about meeting at the Country side restuarant off hwy 2, headed to Bagley about 1 mle from Bemidji? I think they have a big seperate room that is available. Just an idea. Going to signup right now, sounds great...

So is that scoring system as confusing as it looks or what.


Basically if you tie into a Muskie your a winner, hmmm...

Hi Chad,
We are meeting at Cenex just south of Bemidji on Hwy 71. We don't necessarily need a meeting room as we will draw a lake in the parking lot. Teams will likely head up the road to Bluewater bait and get last minute bait/tackle there. They are offering us a 15% discount on bait and tackle.

The scoring is quite easy. Total pounds of fish determines the winners. Muskies are the exception at 25 points for a legal fish because we immediately catch and release with another team's on the water verification. We cannot weigh each muskie.

No, a muskie does not guarantee a win. Look at the Cass Lake results. smile.gif

Who are you teaming up with?

Actually the scoring is as simple as it gets.

1pt per pound of fish and you can weigh one persons daily limit each day, best two day total wins.

Each species does have minimum length requirements.

Chuck you must have been typing at the same time I was! Nice work.

We'll be in the area Friday afternoon/evening. Planning to do some smallie fishing on our way up from the Cities. Thinking about hitting Mille Lacs but if the wind is bad we may turn to that spot you mentioned Tom or then head up to Spider.

Hey Tom and Doug, if you guys see this shoot me an e-mail with some info on the two smallie spots we talked over dinner at Ron's place.

Dennis just got Bemduckboy's entry form so that's another team. Those two are pretty good fishermen, look out for those two, or should I say, just follow them around...LOL grin.gif

Grabs, email on its way.

Oh yea, Ethan, we'll be there too.

Tom, you know I couldn't catch a dead fish in a short barrel with no water in it besides nobody will see us as my boat is camo - duh!!

I'm looking forward to putting faces to names as well as getting a whole weekend to fish.

Ethan,
I'm trying to respond to your email from last night but it keeps bouncing back to me as undeliverable. Can you send me another and confirm your return address?

Sorry I can't make the mystery event. I really wanted to, but my email explains why.

Thanks.

Hey Bob O - I got one from ya.

To those camping at my place this weekend - I have not reserved a porta John for the 3 teams that plan to stay, so I am just going to have our basement open at all times and you guys can use the house whenever you need to. This way it saves everyone a little money. If you guys prefer otherwise, let me know and I should still be able to get one for the event.

See everyone this weekend!!

That's fine Ethan, with only 3 teams camping there it shouldn't be a big deal. Plus there are plenty of woods around too.

      Was up last week on Kab and it seemed that your bait depended on where you were fishing. Some areas leeches did good, but others minnows were the go to. We lindy rigged the entire trip and on days when wind was gusty we did pretty good shallower with minnows in 13 to 20 ft....then some areas we were doing better with leeches 16 to 32 ft. No wind was like the dead sea.
    • Mike89
      catch and eat the crawfish too!!!
    • Uncle Boney
      I can second A Warrior.  Jumbo leeches for Walleye.  Northern were more interested in minnows and crawlers.
    • Harry Goodliffe
      A Carp Anglers Group Fishing social will be on June 23rd in Coon Rapids. If you enter the park from the Coon Rapids side (Egret Blvd), take a left from the parking lot and drive towards the picnic shelters. Take a right at the first stop sign and park in the lot. We will be fishing in the stretch or river behind the picnic shelter/playground. Start time can be before 7am and you can fish into the evening if you want. There will be medals for the 3 largest fish captured.
    • Gone Out Fishin
      Thanks for lots of good info guys.  Sounds like if I do things right I can have fish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I'll try fishing that reef for some evening walleye. Bobber fish for some sunnies in the weeds.  @delcecchi, I catch enough Walleye in the summer that I really don't want to ask. I won't shy away from a bite. I'll check that little bay for crappies.  @vermilionfox, Wow that is a lot of location data. My PROP thanks you for the rock info!  Merry Go Round? I have another question regarding the Rusty Crawfish... are they a problem on the west side of the lake too? Bloody mini lobsters. I remember spending lots of time using orange for bass and walleye since they were a major food source. Been years since I've done that.  Gone Out Fishin
    • Parmer
      I don't think you will be able to run it on that generator. I have a yamaha 2000 and I have not tried it yet but from everything I have read you need 2800 watts to start the AC. All the 2018 ice castle fish houses are coleman mach 3 plus AC I think. 
    • BigVwalters
      The fishing was pretty decent over the weekend.  Walleyes were biting on rigs with leeches or crawlers. Caught 12 between Friday and Saturday with with 4 nice slotters.   Biggest being a 24".   
    • Borch
      Star Island in Cass Lake has remote, boat in primitive camping as well.
    • A Warrior
      Just returned from a successful trip on Kab.  Minnows did catch fish, but leeches were the ticket
    • Rick
      Angling regulations on Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River in northern Minnesota would change under a proposal being considered by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to reduce the number of walleye and sauger allowed to be kept in the winter on the lake, and on the river allowing only catch-and-release fishing for those fish in the spring.  “We recently went through a public process of updating the Lake of the Woods Fisheries Management Plan and identified several potential areas of concern with regard to current levels of harvest,” said Phil Talmage, Baudette fisheries supervisor. “That’s why we’re discussing these potential changes.” The proposed changes would reduce the aggregate limit of walleye and sauger in the winter to align with the summer regulations on Lake of the Woods, and make spring angling on the Rainy River catch-and-release for walleye and sauger. The changes would go into effect starting March 1, 2019. Anglers will see yellow signs at public water accesses around Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River later this month notifying the public of the proposal. Future news releases will provide the details of a formal public comment period during the fall, and will include ways to provide comment to the DNR on the proposal. For more information on Lake of the Woods management go to mndnr.gov/lakeofthewoods. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
