1st Annual Panfish Poppers Contest Saturday March 4th


Recommended Posts

Hey guys I know its short notice but they just got this thing all ok with DNR etc. I hope we can help get a good turnout for this.

1st Annual Panfish Poppers Contest

Sat. March 4th Fish Lake Highbanks Resort

$25 per person entry fee

100% Payback

Registration is at Highbanks Resort 6:30am- 8:00am

Contest Hours are 8am to 4pm

15 total combined panfish will be weighed -- (Bluegill, Crappie, Sunfish)

* No more than 10 may be Crappies *

All Minnesota Fishing Laws apply

We have Marine General donating some prizes to go along with the Cash payouts. We will vote on Sat morning and decide as a group how we want the payout to be.

Example: Pay out threw 3rd place or pay out threw 5th place. It seems to work better with the whole group getting a say in this.

Like I said above I know its a short notice but I hope we have enough "Panfish Geaks" wink.gif out there to make this fly.

We would like to make this a yearly event. If you have questions please E-mail me. I hope to see you all there. Thanks a lot. DONT FORGET YOUR NEW SHELTER LICENSES!

I hear you on the weekend gig... I never seem to get them off, unless I take vacation... If you do have some free time during the week, come on down, and we can sneak out for some trout/salmon.....

Steve,

Good luck on the contest!!! I hope it turns out well for you...

No doubt we should name him GILLSLAYER after that 1 fish day he had to win $1000 and a $1000 trailer. $1000 for a 6" gill? Crazy! At least it wasnt a sucker. wink.gif

Haven't decided yet... It will be a spur of the moment thing if I do.

Sorry guys, I have to work all weekend so I can't won't be able to make it. However, if there are any side bets involved, I'm putting my money on the wall-i-king, from what he's been saying, the big bull gill bite is going quite well.

      Heard that too. Also heard 38 was closed for a but north of rapids due to flooding.    I know the water really came up when I was up last week compared to when I was there in April.

      Someone said 4 inches in the past week, more expected this weekend. A few roads, including county roads that are asphalt ended up with sink holes. Lakes are the highest I've ever seen in the 30+ years coming to the area and now living here. Several people lost trees Tues night

      Dang Kettle  that bites. Great to hear fishing was good though.   How much rain you get up that way?

      50 in 6 hours is great. Boat issues really put a damper on a great day though. Hope you get it fixed quickly.

      Well boat finally got "fixed" and I picked it up Saturday. Last week worked 96 hrs so Sunday wanted the day to fish alone. Boat ran great out to the spot, 4 miles or so. Fishing was great boated over 50 walleye in about 6 hrs. Caught them lindy rigging, jigging and bobber fishing watching them on the live scope. Kept 6 between 18-20 inches. After using the trolling motor for the entire time fishing, go to fire up the tiller and it bogs down and dies. Another 4 hours running the trolling motor back to the launch. Fortunate it's under warranty. Bummer of a day but fishing was great landed one about 7 lbs too

      Terrible news for that area especially this being such a prime time for tourism. We can only hope for dryer days ahead so they can get back to normal.

      For those not in the area, the Lake Vermilion area got anywhere from 5-10" of rain the other day (depending on your source). The lake is rising rapidly affecting docks, shorelines, and cabins. The Littlefork River that runs through Cook overran its banks and flooded the town. It's not expected to crest until at least Saturday, which means things will get worse. Places such as the Comet, the Muni, the library, and many other businesses are flooded. Many roads in the area have been destroyed by flooding as well. There's lots of damage. Below are two quick links.   https://www.northernnewsnow.com/2024/06/20/floodwaters-inundate-city-cook-evacuation-location-open/   https://www.mprnews.org/story/2024/06/20/cleanup-continues-flooding-in-northeast-minnesota-southern-minnesota-rivers-rising

      Apparently just the motorized portage.   If you paddle you are good to go.

      The only way I could do it is running parallel to the shoreline on the "L", but with the wake from the boats and my rocky shoreline, the waves just bounce it around too much, even with bumpers tied off. My neighbors dock is recessed off the main channel, I'm going to sweet talk him into letting me dock it there.

      They closed the Trout Lake Portage down washed out.
