Public invited to Minnewaska Fall Walleye Classic weigh-in Sept. 12-13

6 posts in this topic

The public is invited to attend the weigh-ins at this year's Warrior Boats Lake Minnewaska Fall Walleye Classic on Saturday-Sunday, Sept. 12-13.

Weigh-ins will begin at 3:30 on Saturday and at 3 p.m. on Sunday at Torgy's on Lake Minnewaska. Come on out to Torgy's on Sunday and watch the Vikings game at noon and catch the weigh-ins immediately following the game. We will interview the top 10 teams at the conclusion of the weigh-ins each day.

88 teams will be fishing this year's Fall Walleye Classic with a first place payout of $7,000. 11 of the 88 teams in this year's tournament field will have the opportunity to win an additional $7,500 in Warrior Boats Manufacturer Contingency Cash if owning (orignal owner), fishing from and winning, in a 2008 Warrior Boat, for a possible first place payout of $14,500.

Fishing action begins Saturday and Sunday at 7:30 a.m. This year's tournament field will feature many of the top teams from throughout Minnesota, Wisconsin and both Dakota's including 4 of the past 5 Fall Walleye Classic champions.

"This will be the most competitive field date," said Fall Walleye Classic tournament director, Corey Bohn. "Most of the top 10 from the past five years are fishing, along with Alexandria Spring Walleye Classic champions, Bryan Winterfeldt and Darrin Herd. Throw in a couple of the top pros from the AIM pro walleye series and an FLW Tour championship qualifier, and it's an extremely competitive field."

"Early indications from the teams in town prefishing indicates the fish are on a pretty decent bite, so hopefully we'll see a good bite for this year's tournament," added Bohn. "It's suppose to cool off some beginning Wednesday with temps in the low to mid 60's from Wednesday through the tournament on Sunday. It's going to be a little cooler, but fairly stable those last few days and through the tournament. Hopefully the fish cooperate."

Hope to see you at the weigh-ins at Torgy's both days.

from the downtown stoplight, head west past Dairy Queen and follow the road along the lake. You'll eventually drive right to Torgy's.

    • Thanks for the link.
    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
