Metro Muskie Tournament

4 posts in this topic

I got a Minnesota Muskie Tournament Newsletter and noticed that there is a Metro Muskie tournament on 16 metro lakes June 14th. I have the entry form and can pay the $35 entry fee but I have a few questions about how it works.

Can anyone (fishing partner for the tournament) verify fish caught or does it need to be someone else in the tourny. How do you verify measurements and know for sure that it was caught on that day? Do you get a tag or a hat or something before it begins that you show in the picture? I have never done a tournament before but thought I could donate my money in this one just to give it a try. Sorry for the rookie questions.

Thanks for the help.

Hey Dan,

Kind of a fun way for someone like you and I from the sounds of it to experience a tourney setting. It's a little more lax than most.

The witness must be outside your boat, but doesn't have to be a tourney participant. There's a form they fill out. Like you said, if you're planning on fishing the Metro that day anyway, why not? Only risk is drawing attention to a lake you may fish a lot the following few days! That happened last year with Eagle, it was packed the next day!

Here are the rules:

2008 Metro Tournament Rules

Artificial lures ONLY - no live or dead bait.

No fishing prior to 6:00 a.m. on June 14, 2008.

All participants must wear life jackets whenever gas motor is running.

All persons in the boat must be tournament participants.

Only one line per angler.

Any unsportsmanlike conduct will be grounds for disqualification. Judges decision final.

Only live released muskies may be entered. Witnesses required for muskies 40" or over.

All caught muskies of any length will be entered for Grand Prize Drawing.

All 40" muskies must be taken immediately to nearest witness not in your boat for measurement and release. Witness does not have to be participating in Metro Muskie Tournament.

Fishing boundaries on Lake St. Croix are waters downstream of the Hwy 64 bridge in Stillwater to the Hwy 10 bridge in Prescott.

Digital or 35mm photo required of all fish entered in tournament and Grand Prize drawing. (Photos will be downloaded/developed at awards ceremony).

All witness forms must be turned in at Gander Mountain in Maple Grove by 4:00 pm.

Awards based on total points.

June 2nd is the cut-off for registration. Do a web search on "mmtt" and you'll find the site and reg form.

I'm likely in town for some graduation open house that weekend, so I'll probably sign up this year. Heck, I live two miles away from the Maple Grove GM, so why not?

    • Glad to hear you're back up and running again.          
    • I got my boat back today and it runs great now but the mechanic said I had too many idling hours on it and it had a lot of carbon build up. I have trolled a lot with this motor . It has ran great but I did have  this recent issue with it where I had to bring it in and it runs good now. Mechanic recommended run it more often at higher rpm's.  For those that troll with their main engine,  how often do you run in a higher rpm's? I  use carbon guard  and thought that that would prevent the carbon buildup.  If I trolled for three or four hours at a higher RPM would that be too much ?          
    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
