I'm trying to line up a partner. This is a fun time and well run tourney and I don't want to miss it or miss cashing a check again! Most of my friends are Walleye Snobs though so I will have to do some arm twisting maybe!!!

Hmmmm, will the ice be off of Zbay by then?

Think Spring....It's bound to happen!

Fisky,

I'm afraid I lean toward the walleye snob side, but if you're desperate for a partner, it sounds like a good time.

Of course, you can't tell anyone I fished in a Jack tournament!

We've been doing this tournament for 10 years and the ice has always been off. A couple of years ago there was still some in the bat up by the mouth, but by the middle of the first day it was all gone. If anyone gets a chance swing by cabin #1 for a beverage that weekend.

Has it been 10 years already? I've done it quite a few times myself. The year I got second the ice was blowing in from off the mainlake into the jetty area making that area difficult for those that fish there.

Doug I'll get you a E out tonite, your jiggin on the river by now anyhow!

Do you have to register early, or can I do that when I get there on Friday?

You can do it whenever you get there, as late as Saturday morning, before it starts

I'm getting a little nervous about still having ice out there. I've got mixed emotions, i'm not sure if I want the sun to shine, or for it to rain to get rid of the ice.

Sunshine would be nice smile.gif going to be wet soon enough. But you know there could be a 1st time for a not ice out tournament. Cast your lures on top of the ice and see if you can get the jacks to jump through the old holes, or just drink beer. grin.gif

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it. 
    • leech~~
      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.
