Now with all the rules out and things beginning to form,....who still needs a partner? I would rather not be an alternate because I really would like to fish all the events, and this is early enough warning that I can schedule for these events. So how about it? Who needs a partner? Like I said before I don't have a boat, but I am willing to make things work out evenly.
E-mail me if you wanna form a partnership,...I live in Hopkins in case that helps.

Looking forward to hearing from someone.

Dennis,

Have you got a partner yet? If not maybe you should just hook up with Grabs. He even lives in your neck of the woods.

I'm not totally sure, but I may be in need of a partner for the June fishing trip to Vermillion. Have boat, but MIGHT need a partner.

Hammer em'

I'm thinking I should come up with a catchy phrase, but those seam to be the people who get in trouble lately.

There is a good chance that I will participate at least in the Vermilion go round. However, I will need a partner(haven't got my boat yet).

I have fished Vermilion enough to have a good idea what to do, at least for walldogs!!

Keep me in mind!!


Hammer 'em,
Your name is catchy enough! No need to change!

Just a remider-
This year's format is different than last year's.
You have to be on a team that commits to all 4 events, the only "open" event will be on Pokegama and is not part of the league.
The only way that individuals will be allowed to fish single events is if they are subbing for someone on a team.
We are doing it this way in order to avoid people saying they are going to be there and then not showing up. There was a lot of guesswork last year which is what we are trying to avoid.
So get those teams going and get your registrations in!! smile.gif

Jim,
I don't know why the rules would prohibit you from being our sub. I think that's the only event we would need a sub, and I really don't know that lake at all. I'll let you know, but why don't you plan on it. My partner is planning a trip to Lake Mich. that weekend. I should go with, but Vermillion and this whole shindig sounds too fun!!!

No, not a big one!!! It's real painful to lose a big fish like that. Even more painful when it's with someone who will never let you forget about it!

Certainly will be a new experience up on Vermillion. My main objective is to just not get lost!!!!!!

Cory,
It's $200 per team, not per person, for the entire summer league (Vermilion, Minnewaska, Clear Lake and Big Pine). That includes all the events except the Pokegama "open" event where that is an extra $100 (am I right guys?) for that event only. The Pokegama open is for people who want to join in on the fun, but can't commit to the weekend tourneys throughout the state.

The league also includes an excellent Saturday night meal, which is a real treat! Did you see that menu? Wow!

Did I miss anything?

As of this moment, we have 9 teams verbally committed with 4 paid. It's early yet, but we should fill it up. I'm going to wait another month or two then if it is not filled by then, really start pushing it on the other forums. I'll be really pushing it too until we get 15 paid teams, even if more have verbally said they will do it. If anyone needs a registration form or more info, please e mail me at-

Gullguide, in case you don't already know and in case you need to know, I am going to be Dennis's partner. You can confirm that with him, but we have agreed to that.

As much as I love ice fishing I am really getting excited for June to come now. Thanks for all the work you have put into this.

Chris

Hey, all, just wondering what you have to do to get in on this thing. Sounds like too much fun to pass on. Maybe someone could e-mail me with some info. Wouldn't mind fishing with you guys sometime. I'm ALWAYS available for a good fishing outing.

    • Good luck on your hunt, let us know how you do!
    • I have another weekend in me to fish and fight the winds and weather and then the boat will be done for the year.  Guess it is that time of the season but would really love to get another couple outings in but such is life! 
    • who uses flashers now days haha; I'm a helix convert now too, i was hesitant at first as the Lowrance had a LCD screen a few years ago for ice fishing but the lag was unusable, but hbird figured it out. Mapping, flasher screen if wanted, and sonar all in one, its like a smartphone; everything in one.   also, I have not had any interference issues with others using the helix, especially with all of hte chirp setttings
    • Looks like a good time 
    • I love my Helix unit also, and GPS has been a game changer for me. No more fumbling with my phone in the cold with apps eating my battery and trying to keep it out of the elements.    I miss the simplicity of my Marcum VX-1 but after getting my Helix dialed in I have no complaints.
    • SD resident opener was a wet one. Saturday I didn't go out. Sunday morning woke up with 4.5" inches of snow at my place a few miles south of Sioux Falls. Never would I have imagined we would be able to hunt in snow this early! The other odd part is that none of the weather people even hinted at any accumulation or even predicted any chance of precip. It literally just came out of nowhere.   Yesterday I hunted the entire day from noon to sundown and was fortunate enough to still have some snow stick around in areas.. My only summary is swamp country. I wore the wrong boots, wrong pants etc. Should have just wore waders would have been able access things better. My biggest mistake was not going far enough west and not far enough north. But there is a ton of public land where I headed and I hadn't been able to scout that way yet this year. Everything that looked walkable was wet it didnt matter how high or low it was. If it looked good at knee level it very likely had ankle high standing water under it. Ditches were full of water, some roads were underwater it was just wet everywhere and I don't see any signs of any harvesting starting any time soon. The water just made things difficult to walk as some areas I am familiar with. I could walk one side and work it good, but then get land locked because of water and have no way of getting to the other sides and ended up back tracking and walking a lot of same areas twice  which usually isnt productive.   I only managed 1 bird all day. I missed 1 bird my first walk probably at 12:01pm right after getting out of the truck. Just was slow to get the gun up and was way behind it. Typically early season lull, I think I just stared at the bird before I even realized I should be trying to shoot it. I downed another bird early afternoon and I knew it wasn't hit hard. Made a good mark on it and then my dog got a good track and pinned it down. As I went to grab it with my hand the dog released and the bird took off like a bat out of hell and we never were able to recover it because of all of the water. As soon as I put my hand on it, it just exploded and was gone. Was just an odd scenario.   Saw a few other hens but otherwise a very very slow day. I had spotted a bunch of birds coming out of some CRP earlier in the day that headed for corn. I came back an hour before sundown and hunkered down hopefully to get some pokes at them during the golden hour and they never showed up. I know the birds are around but all the crops in makes it difficult to hunt during the day.   I dont know what to suggest for people coming for the big opener this weekend. Its going to be difficult with so many crops in. I would say anywhere north of HWY 14 should be a little drier in areas but they have still seen some moisture the last couple weeks. Up near Brown county they are basically in a drought and down in the south eastern part of the state we are breaking yearly precipitation records. Harvest is off to a slow start all over. I know this weekend is the big opener everyone gets fired up for but if it were me I would be coming back for late season hunts and skip the circus this weekend.   I wont be hitting it hard any time soon will probably just stick to some sundown hunts closer to home for now. I have some gopro footage I need to get edited from yesterday got alot of good stuff on video including the bird that got away.   Good luck to those heading out this weekend!
    • I'd like to see how the Helix handles interference.   Interference was the reason I went from my Interphase Video to a flasher. Currently using HBird Ice 45 and MarCum LX5.
    • I put all the boats put away,  subsequently the rain stopped.  I'll take that and finish pulling the dock in.
    • Posting.  Cuz I can’t sleep worth a dump.  Gonna be a MEA yahoo for most the rest of the week.  I’ve heard good reports from the friends that are already out there. They took the whole week so I’m driving myself out Tuesday night.     Just getting the the back of the truck filled with dekes got me too revved up.  Gonna be hard packing anything else besides waders, layout blind, guns and shells!  Who needs food and more than one change of clothes for 5 days anyway?!
    • I was ALMOST headed to Ely as well but opted to stick to “productive” pursuits at home, figuring I probably missed the October window this year.  That only lasted a day though before I headed west.   It looked really cool though.  Quiet too I bet.
