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.

    • Sounds like next year you need to get ahold of Jonny P at Red Lake Remote Ice Fishing & Sleeper Rentals @RedLakeRemote. He can get you out there and move ya around! 😉  He may be full this year already then. 
    • I've been visiting Upper Red each year (annual trip) for the past 7 years.  I have had "success" in catching fish....but never really a "great day".  From conversations I have had over the years with other anglers I know that there can be some better days and some phenomenal days on Upper Red....and I realize you can't force a fish to bite. I've spent way more than I know I should have on lures, jigs, etc.  But always wanted to make sure I had anything the fish could ever want. I'm only able to fish Walleye once a year so I don't get a lot of time for practice.   Lets get this out of the way - I fly in from out of state.  I can only bring limited gear, so I am basically confined to a sleeper house.  No tents, machines, etc. to help me be mobile.  And since I am in a sleeper - I am also limited to the time I can come based on safe-ice.  Usually the week between Christmas & New-Years. So - knowing that moving farther from the crowds, being more mobile, moving more often etc. is not an option, are there any tips you can offer to catching more fish from a fish-house?   I use a dead-stick in one hole.  Usually with the usual spoon and a live minnow.  Or sometimes just a plain red hook and minnow. My other rod I jig with a minnow head and one of many jigs, lures, spoons, etc.     Does my jigging need to be constant or jig, pause, jig pause?   I just need some basic tips or guidelines so I can get a few more fish on the line.   I've watched all the Ice-Team and other videos I can possibly find.  I've read everything I can find from Northland as well as everyone else.  Not much out there specifically showing or explaining what to do or how to fish in this kind of situation.  Most are about first-ice and/or they are mobile.   Anything you could suggest would be greatly appreciated.  I look forward to this trip every year....would just like to make it a little better of an experience.   Thanks!

    • And what would there version be?
    • and a couple pretty good running backs too!!!!!!!!   bring on the Tide!!!!!!!!!!
    • not unless you can find an old lakemaster garmin compatible chip and if your garmin can indeed read it; otherwise you can get garmin's version
    • Freekying yeaa!  😃 About time. 3 3/4 of a game without as much as a field goal with two of the best receivers in the NFL would say this is a good move! 🤨
    • I actually have the opposite  Problem of keeping the ice solid. After about two weeks of fishing the same spot, The front tip-up is floating on water.  I now bank the back 3/4 of the house only To regulate the trapped air underneath.             
    • Does anyone know if you can put a Lakemaster chip in a dash mount GPS. I have a Garmin dash mount and it would be nice and handy if I could do that.   Thanks
    • Vikings Fire Offensive Coordinator John DeFilippo December 11, 2018 at 11:16 am   MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Minnesota Vikings’ offense struggled against the Seattle Seahawks on prime time television Monday evening – and it looks to be enough to cost the offensive coordinator his job.   On Tuesday, the team confirmed they have relieved John DeFilippo of his duties as offensive coordinator.   Kevin Strefanski has been elevated to interim offensive coordinator and will handle play-calling duties, the team said. The Vikings lost to the Seahawks 7-21 Monday evening, and were nearly shut out. The Vikings scored their only touchdown with 1:10 remaining in the game.  
    • oh the ice is good.....on the 2 lakes i hit. one had 10 inches the other 12!!!!!!!!
