Contest is this Saturday. You can fish anywhere on the lake but bring your big perch to Hunters to weigh in. Usually needs to be around 14" to even have a chance at winning. You need to buy a button which run $10 in order to weigh in fish but you also get your name in a drawing and a chance to win a prize, which are usually pretty nice (guns, flashers, cameras, cash, augers, not sure if hunters has an ATV). The drawing usually starts around 3pm and lasts atleast an hour.

The big drawing prize was a four wheeler last year my guess it is similar this year. for got who posted but 14 is the mark you want to shoot for I took fourth last year and won a vex. it was a pound 8oz. wont be able to make it this year so good luck to you that go and have a cold one for me.

I will be up there for the hunters tournament. Those buttons are a good deal, I bought a couple just to try to get some of those raffle prizes. Two years ago my buddy's dad one a trip to vegas from hunters.

Anyone from FM attend? How you do fishing? Any prizes?

I got a late start and fished about 1030 right up until 2 around two mile out of Hunters. Only caught 9 fish biggest maybe 11". The fish I did get came mostly on a dropper rig. Didnt win anything during the drawing. So I never heard, anyone know what the top perch and pout weighed?

The biggest perch weighed 1.55 lbs. & the winning pout was something like 5.3 lbs. I think. Didn't win anything, but we caught a dozen nice eaters 10-12 inchers out at the 2 mile area also. We fished from 8:00 A.M.until 7:30 P.M. in 32 ft. and saw alot of lookers on the camera, but few takers. We caught most of the bigger ones on plain white hooks with crappie minnows. They sure are gorging on the mayfly larva, spiiting out alot of the little red worms when you pull them in. We only saw one walleye the whole time out, it just swam by on the camera without stopping to even sniff the bait. The weather was a bit chilly also! smirk.gif

Is the Liberty Beach/Isle perch extravaganza coming up this weekend (2/25-26)? Any info on times & lake access will be appreciated.

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick

      Maybe the bamboozler will end up being like every fish story, some old timers holding their hands out as wide as possible to demonstrate to a youngster just how big it was....

      Fished a bigger lake, fish or at least the eaters are on the mid lake humps. Water Temps 68 degrees, freezer now has 6 total as I've been eating fish often. Tomorrow we chase the 30" walleye for catch and release.
