FMers going up to the eelpout fest in Walker this year?

Recommended Posts

Diesel D

Just wondering if any FMers are going to make the trek up to Walker Feb 16-18 for the Eelpout Festival? I know it is not the venue for the die-hard fisher people but it sure can be a lot of fun.

Anyway, drop a line if you are thinkin' about going.

I'm pretty sure I'll be there seeing as I live near Walker.I'm hoping to place in the top ten this year. I myself along with a few others are die hard pouters. There are secrets to catching them and certain spots. It's not just let a rattle reel catch one here and there. If you put your time in you'll hit the jackpot.

We'll be up there also. Went last year for the first time and it was a blast. We had the best of intentions but we never wet a line on leech though. We did fish on another lake in Longville Saturday for a bit but headed back into Walker for the night time festivities.

Do you set up camp or do you head home in the evenings?

Good luck.

Me and 3 buddies will be there Thursday night to sunday, for our 3rd year. The weekend is an absolute blast. I have to admit that we don't even bring a line or an auger. We just set the sleeper down, decorate around the house and relax and drink lots of "water" all weekend. Even if you don't stay over night it is great for people to see everything that goes on, and what people all bring and set up.

Right now we're 50/50 either we're going to the pout fest or Red lake. I recommend that if you ice fish and or party you should take in at least one pout fest. If you see the 2nd coolest green pout flag that will be us.

I will be heading up for my first ever pout festival. I have been told by numerous buddies that it is not to be missed, so I am heading up. What should I expect and what are the essentials to bring for the weekend????? I am going to try and do some fishing, but I think that may cease at nightime when the partying really gets going. Hope to see a good crowd up there.....hopefully more girls than sausage!!

Well bring up your fishing equipment, warm clothes, and beverages. Shouldn't need much else. It is a fun crowd but usually at least 80% sausage. Stop by Beaver Lodge and say hi.

Oh ya almost forgot, bring some girls!!!

It's likely I may be volunteering for this in a research and developement aspect for my company. grin.gif

Is there any must see's that someone new to this event should pursue? How many beads should one bring?

I think one of the neatest things is just how into it people get with their "camps". There has been a contest with some pretty good prizes the last few years judging these different places. People build two story buildings right out on the ice for this thing. We usually get pretty into it with the Beaver Lodge. This year I know we have some real beavers (frozen) to add to the place. At our game of Drinko (like plinko) there is usually plenty of chances to use those beads. The pout pole at the access is pretty cool also.
