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??

      In Aitkin now; getting a slow start this morning.  No problem there, it’s a day bite for the most part.   Yesterday I checked one of those two hit list lakes.  Evening into the dark.  I only picked up 2 perch, 1 gill and had one 30 inch pike to the hole 4 times before it came off when I got more aggressive to turn his head into the hole.  I started in 24 feet and worked up to 15 before connecting with anything.   What a fight though. Using a 28 inch pannie rod, 2 lb test on a 13 Descent, fishing size 16 jig and plastic.  After hooking into it and the first head shakes were done it just sat there.  I couldn’t move it for a while but could feel it finning around.  I thought, what the heck!  Did I just hook a beaver?!

      Beautiful morning on the harbor.  6 inches of ice where I'm at.

      60 years ago at the age of 10, I used to read the fishing ads in Field & Stream about fishing in Minnesota.   I always said I would go one day, but as you know life and things get in the way.   Well, I'm 90% retired now and ready to make the long trip from way down south to go fishing in Minnesota, my lifelong dream.   I always wanted to go to the BWCA, but I'm simply not able now due to health problems. I can't do hiking, portaging, etc anymore.   Here's the deal....  I would love to find a small remote cabin (in Minnesota) on a small lake to stay for a week or more, next spring or summer.    I don't need anything fancy... rustic is the best for me.   I want to fish for smallmouth bass and big bluegills and I will bring my boat along too.   If any of you could recommend a small lake, with a small cabin and good fishing to rent for a week or so, I promise I will repay you somehow.   A guide would be nice for a day, or I'd gladly give one of you a nice tip and take you along in my boat fishing, as many days as you want.   Would you please help make my 60-year dream come true?  PM me if you wish.   Thanks in advance.    PS:  If the fishing is better in a spot that doesn't have cabins, I can find a place to stay elsewhere.  Good fishing is more important that a place to sleep anyway.
