Park Rapids tourney?

Recommended Posts

Huey

I'll probably fish the tournament next Saturday (Feb 3rd) on Fish Hook lake. This would be my first time fishing it and I'm hoping to get some info.

Can you fish anywhere on the lake or is there a set tournament area? Also would you be OK if you have to walk or do most people show up with a sled or ATV? Also can you park by lake? or is there a shuttle?

Thanks in advance for any info.

Huey

Yes, there is a set area that you have to fish. you enter through a gate that gets you into a roped off area to fish. there is off the lake parking where you can board a shuttle bus that will bring you to the lake. the only way you can drive on the lake is if you are handicaped or disabled.

remember....no tickets are sold on the ice so buy them before you arive

Where can you buy tickets in advance? Is the ticket good for any type of raffle prizes even if you don't end up fishing? Thanks.

I would suggest contacting the American Legion at 218-732-3360. They are the headquarters and can let you know how many tickets are still available. As of today there are tickets yet. Make sure to bring your icecreepers or you'll likely end up on your bottom. Good luck to all fishing and enjoying our great area.

No portables allowed or alcohol during the fishing contest.

Tickets can be purchased at the American Legion ONLY on

Saturday morning. All other vendors will be turning in

their tickets on Friday. The club is located on highway

34 east across from Thielen Motors, going towards Walker.

It's going to be cold folks, so dress for at least -10F

on the ice. Ice cleats are a must, very little snow on

Fishhook lake. Tickets are good for all raffle prizes

even if you elect not to fish!

Anyone coming, we appreciate your support in the Park

Rapids area. The Legion uses the funds to support many

non-profit organizations in the area throughtout the

entire year.

These aren't changes to the normal routine are they? Meaning, are the fish catagory prizes still, "catch-only" prizes?

Is there a list of "official rules" anywhere - or something that someone could post on here - that would be great. Are only people with tickets allowed in the fishing area? I would assume you have to be 18 to win the prizes? If so - can you bring a kid in with you or a non-fisher person? Just curious - I found a website that lists the prizes and times/location - but not the details - and that may be helpful to avoid confusion the day of??

      Ace (or anyone for that matter), have you been able to pinpoint the conditions that bring the big smallies up shallow in the fall?  Water temp perhaps?  Moon phase? A bait connection?  We saw this happen by chance a couple of years ago, which resulted in some very large smallies coming over the rails.  Didn’t weigh the biggest but my guess was 6lbs+.     Just trying to to see if this shallow movement can be predicted.    Brian

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.

      Yeah, I wouldn’t be making this treck until next June. I heard from another source that it’s navigable as well, as long as water levels are normal. Thanks for the info.

      @gimruis   I’ve been accused of having too much patience many times.   My duck hunting buddy talked about people’s differing personalities and how we didn’t understand why fellow hunters weren’t more considerate.  We settled on the fact that we’ve been trained to be that naive from working in the hospitality/service industry too long! 😀   Still loving the hunting but have to change our expectations a bit

      up here on webb lake right now... anyone have any tips or suggestions?!

      Instead of going through all the hassle of mounting it in your boat before you knows if it's good. You may try duct taping the ducer to a stick to hang over the side and run some power wires to it.   You should know pretty fast if it works or not by making a few knob adjustments. Good Luck.

      Orchard in Lakeville has a good population of tiger's.

      I know this....not as many smallmouth coming up shallow on this fall trip as compared to spring. Could not get a top water bite regardless of time of day and depth of water.   Found a few stragglers in the few hours we chased them.
