Ok, just have a few questions for ya.

1) Are you still having the open day on Pokegama? I haven't heard anything about that for a while.

2)For the Vermilion tourney - is the tourney headquarters still at the campground, or will it be at Guidemans place as almost everyone is staying there?

3)Will someone be at tourney hdqtrs all the time so if I have a full livewell, am I able to go in at any time to empty out and get weighed - or is that only possible at designated times when everyone is to check in?

4)Once a fish is in a livewell, does it have to stay, or can you keep releasing smaller ones and putting larger ones in as you catch them?

5)If a muskie or large pike is pretty beat up or foul hooked and you need to release it right away - and a person is nowhere close to verify, what do you do to get credit for that fish?

6)Would a guy be able to bring an instant camera or digital camera to take a pic of a large fish so we wouldn't need to get another boat to come over and verify?

7)Just wanted to make sure I understood this - only 1 limit of fish per boat per day- does that mean one persons limit for 2 people(3 pike) or each limit for 2 people combined (6 pike)?

Yes - I am quiet Clueless when it comes to this stuff - so don't hold it against me guys! wink.gif These will be my first tournements - I am really excited to see how things turn out (how well I can measure up to you fishin' experts)lol

GullGuide - registration is in the mail.

Thanks,

1. Yes

2. Guideman's Place

3. No, We will have a designated time half way thru day and then again at the end of the day.

4. Yes

5. Gullguide will discuss this in the rules meeting. This league strongly promotes catch and release and everything possible is done to ensure a fishes survival


6. See #5

7. Only 1 persons limit per day, per boat. i.e 3 pike, 6 walleye, etc may be weighed per day. This league strongly promotes catch and release and everything possible is done to

Paul pretty much covered it.

As for #3, we fished the same hours last year and did not have a single dead fish at any of the weigh-ins, well, we did have one boat load but that was because their live well broke down. We are talking about 4 hours on the water, a one hour break then another 3-4 depending on the sunset/sunrise.

#5- That is what the cell phones/radios are for. There should be someone fairly close by and I would suggest trying to contact someone right away for verification. I also propose that we offer a 1 point bonus for any team who responds to a verification call (First team on the scene only).

#6- Since the point system is based on weight; it would be difficult if not impossible to use a digital cam. The ONLY way this would work is if you were to catch a muskie that was more than obviously legal size and you could show the measuring process. But if the fish is right on the mark or 1-3 inches over, I would suggest that you call someone so there is no question that the fish was measured correctly. Not saying we don't believe you, but I do not want any arguments or suspicions.

I'll also be emailing everyone with maps/directions to Guideman's place and any other last minute info.
Other than that, we'll see ya on Vermilion.

Excellent Q&A, but number 4 was a two-part question that I didn't see a complete answer to. Was wondering the same thing. If a fish is put into a livewell, is it considered entered or can it be replaced by a larger one? Thanks for the help!

Good question.....
I looked through the entire MN fishing regs to make sure, and as long as you do not throw them on a stringer, which we do not do anyway, and as long as we do not transport them, which we do not do either, you can sort all you want. All tourneys do this. I know last year we did as well.

I believe you can only sort untill you have a limit.Once you put that last fish for your limit in the livewell you can no longer cull any fish of that species.So in effect you could sort up to two limits as long as your partner is in the boat.

    • Good luck to you all. Sounds like a great trip.
    • Thanks Scoot!  Yes, we have our bear spray, brought a couple extra cans to keep in our packs besides what we have our on hips.   Hopefully it remains there the whole trip. Going to try and keep this updated during our trip. My son is taking video production class in school, hopefully he can put something together when we get back. Signing off for now, going to have lunch with the wife before I head home, grab the last cooler and pick my son up from school!  
    • It was an okay trip, made the best of it. Changed destination and distance I was willing to travel in those weather conditions. Can't afford to screw up when I'm solo.  More of a winter trip feel than a fall trip. After fishing in 17 degree windchill, I found just hanging out fireside a much better option.   I think I need to do an actual summer BW trip next year, despite the bugs and crowds. Than I can take the fishing part more seriously.   Seen some groups pass by camp, so there were others as crazy as I.
    • Good luck!  Bring bear spray, make sure it's always accessible, and know how to use it. No shortage of grizz in that area. Seems practically every year someone is attacked in the Gravelies.    Have fun and report back!
    • dont look so puzzled, I was correcting the stuff rick posted on fm as per your request.
    • From the left or they buck you off
    • revenge... LOL     But for almost $200 bones more for a Ice 7 then a FL18 not sure how much better?   But for almost $200 bones more for an Ice 7 than an FL18, not sure how much better.     
    • Hummingbird Ice 7.  Yes please fix anything you don't understand that may bug you! 😃
    • 3 years ago I fell for the FLX28 from a FL18 and while I like the quiet I miss the 18. The 28 has a couple advantages but it has so much worthless dump on it my 18 did everything I wanted in a flasher. I sold the 18 to a friend and there's no way he's selling it back. JMHO but that 18 was the best ever. Like others I had a chance to buy at a very low price but still question the decision. As much as I'm tired of these flasher/auger posts this one is actually more about features more than brand bashing. Also a smart post by Rick to get some traffic going. I think this is still the best ice site but wonder why so many disappeared. The rules have been relaxed too, I haven't been banned for 2 or 3 years now. My reputation has a plus sign on it!  Eyeguy, time for some underwater photography?
    • for a ice???  then instead of than??  want me to edit???  ;lol
