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.

    • I also picked up a couple extra trailer tilt pins in case someone walks off with mine again. I would have taken my enclosed trailer but my check engine light is on in my Suburban to and it comes up knock sensor. And they don't recommend driving it with bad knock sensor or could damage engine. Need a warmer day to tackle that as it involves removing the intake to get at the darn thing. Hope my luck improves
    • Seems like one could use chuck to make corned beef, but don't see much about it on the net...  Might be a fun experiment.
    • Dropped it off at dealer today and might be a week to get it back. Not sure you have relays with manual reverse but if anyone is looking for spares they are $5 at O Rielly parts and they have more expensive ones to but look just like the $5 ones. I bought 4 of them for spares. Im also going to ask mechanic when I pick it up if there is a way to get it out of reverse manually so if it ever happens out in the middle of the woods. 
    • corned beef is right up there but we are now getting into the season where the sales will start!!  love the ruebens too!!!  but it is one thing I never made from scratch, just store bought and cooked...  go for it bobber!!! 
    • Got drawn for the MN B season! Hope the weather cooperates.
    • Did you ever end up making corned beef Thunderlund? or anyone?The Mrs went up to cub yesterday so I had her pick up some c beef from the deli for Ruebens, holy moly they dont give that stuff away!!  I see most recipes call for brisket ( thinking maybe end up kind of stringy) but I do have several chuck roasts,  I'm thinking brining one and give it a whirl..If so how'd it turn out?
    • I use a lighter duty set on the front because they fit tighter and have better clearance. On the back I use  more aggressive v-bars. Sometimes one set isn’t enough and once I got stuck with both sets on. I’m pretty new to this too but for the most part they’ve worked  well for me. 
    • I've used these too. Do you add any meat or whole minnow? Hooked through the back or lip? 
    • Was up there a week ago. We stayed at the Walleye Retreat Lodge but did our own fishing rather than using their houses. First day we went out kind of N-NW of Morris Point into 27' of water. Didn't do too well. Just a couple saugers in the afternoon.    My nephew was up there with another bunch and went out using Adrian's Resort access and did quite well that same day. They gave us waypoints to their location so on day 2 we tried that. It was about 15 miles north in 33' of water. We did much better this day although most were still saugers in the 12" - 13" range. Got a few walleye in the 15" - 19" range and one 21" by your's truly.    Seemed our best success, especially for the walleyes, was dead sticking using a plain hook through the back of rainbows about a foot off the bottom. I talked to one of our neighboring fishermen and he had just landed a 27" walleye.
