15th Annual Extravaganza

Recommended Posts

walleyedan

18 more days and it's Extravaganza time again!! I'm sure most of you know all about it, but there are some people out there that need to experience it. It's an event, not just a contest. I have missed only one year and I think that was the year I would have won!! Too bad!! Actually this year I think I'm going to win. It's January 22 from 12-3 p.m. on Gull Lake's Hole-in-the-Day Bay. If you have the the day open, I would say it's a must. The money raised goes to charities that's the special part about the event. Just one of the special parts I guess. If you go to www.icefishing.org, you will find more info.

Been there the last three years and it is awesome. I have caught 3 fish, but I don't think if you taped them all together I would have qualified for a prize laugh.gif Oh well, I will be dropping the line down again in quest of a prize winning fish.

Ditto on what Dan had said--it is the great experience of the winter. You cannot believe all the people out there and that all can actually be on the ice in one very large area--Fishing can be very good in that area--alot of depth change so get there early to find the hole you want.And the ton of money that is made for the area charities is well worth the price of a ticket..Should be a ball-hope to see all there-Bill

Quick question....I saw in the rules they said you can use a line to check depth before it starts, question is this, can you use your depth finder? Thanks

The event is the best winter ice tourney in the state. It is a great event for everyone involved- charities, participants, and community. The charitable contributions from this event are unsurpassed. I can't say enough good things about the Jaycees, Camp Confidence and the great job they do every year. My favorite part about it every year is all the great people that stop in the bait shop and go out to enjoy the contest. It always draws a very excited crowd. Good Luck this year Dan, maybe its your year.

My tip to everyone is to make sure you get your catch up to the weigh in quickly. A few years back I took my time on the way to the weigh scale with a small perch. Turns out I missed out on winning a portable fish house by about 10 seconds. I still kick myself for that blunder.

You can use your depth finder all you want prior to and during the contest. I'm guessing the reason it was brought up that you could use your line to check the depth before the contest is that this is the only way you can put a line in the water prior to the start of the contest.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!

      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!

      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.

      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL
