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.

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??

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.

      This is great! I’ve never heard of this either Skunked, thanks for sharing- will give it a shot this summer!

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.
