I know several guys up north that would be interested in a Walleye League/weekend tourny!

I know this not the best time of year for this but, I was wondering if any other FM folkes have wanted a FM walleye tournment. I have not checked with Rick or anybody to see what he thinks and I know there is already a great LETS tournament series available. I generally only fish for walleyes and thought, just maybe there are a few other walleye guys out there. Mainly I just wanted to see if there is any interest? I am not well versed on MN tournament regs and not sure if Rick wants another league, but I think it would be fun to meet new FM people. If there is an interest I would like suggestions, but my idea would be a smaller, inexpensive (5-15 boat field maybe $10-$50) going out and fishing one or 2 day events on local or more premier MN walleye waters. Anywere from 3-6 tournaments depending on interest and so on. What do you guys think, any interest? Rick would you even want another league, obviously we wouldn't want it to compete with the LETS or take away folks.

I just looked and saw there was a post about an FM Tournament a while back and it looked like there was at least some interest in this. Mistermom, WalleyeGFA, FishingAddict, stayncharge and others any of you still out there?

Thanks guys. I think it would be fun to fish lakes like Mille Lacs, Winni, Leech, Cass, LOW, Ottertail, Big Pine, Minnewaska, Bigstone, Vermillion, Rainy, and Pool 4, but would be open to whatever including metro lakes like Buffalo, Rush, Tonka, Chisago, White Bear, Waconia etc. I think it would be fun to do a mix of 1 and 2 day events. I like the idea of 2 day events as there is some chance of redemption. I know there is already a bunch of non FM Walleye tournaments, but I think there is a spot for guys like me who want to meet new FM folks, have a bunch of fun, take it serious, but maybe not quite as serious as the fellas with the 621vs with a 250 and 3 X-19. We would not have the 200-600 entry fees. Maybe before and after an event we can meet together and learn new fishing tactics, equiptment, and if somebody knows the the lake well they can teach the others a little. If people are interested and we have Ricks blessing, I would be happy to do some leg work on this.

    • That's interesting. I would believe fish gorge themselves then go a day or two without eating.  They probably don't eat breakfast, lunch, dinner and second dinner like I do!
    • If you're confined to the sleeper then your results are going to be hit or miss and your odds of a really epic day aren't very good.  You'll probably catch some fish in the sleeper but I have yet to experience a truly great day by just staying in the sleeper.     Like others have said Cookies on Red Lake is a good option.  I've stayed with him before and he moved the house for us on Saturday afternoon when we only had a handful of fish by then.  The bite didn't pick up substantially with the move but its nice to know the guy is doing everything he can to give you a good trip.   I haven't stayed with Johnny P at Red Lake Remote but I've heard nothing but good things.    I think if you explained your experience to any of those guys they'll do their very best to give you an epic day but of course they can only do so much.   Do you usually come up with a bunch of other people or by yourself?  Maybe there is a way to get you out in a more mobile set up where you can go punch a bunch of holes and go find the fish.  From my experience there really isn't a trick to fishing Red Lake its all about moving around drilling lots of holes until you get on them.   Just find a spot without anyone else around and start drilling.  
    • i'm hoping santa brings me some!!!!!!!!!!!! but i've been told i havent been all the good the past year!!!!!!!!😩
    • Plan on an archery tag again this spring.  Only Minnesota, hope to someday hunt a Merriams somewhere.
    • not sure how accurate this is, but i read once that a fish will eat its weight once every 3 days????????????
    • I was at Cabelas over the weekend and they had a sign at the fish tanks with the feeding schedule. They only feed them 3 times a week, and there are some really nice sunnies and crappies in those tanks. Made me wonder how often fish actually eat. Also gave me a great excuse for all those times I go out and get skunked.
    • As Leech said, I would contact Johnny P with Red Lake Remotes. He used to post a lot on this site and seemed to know the lake like the back of his hand. He started a few years ago with just portable houses in order to go "remote" but now has sleeper houses.  
    • try some bigger baits that rattle and glow or are really flashy. Something like a rippin rap,  chubby darter, clam time bomb or other big lures that make a lot of noise or have lots of beads or something that rattles to make noise. rip them high in the water until you call in fish and then jig less aggressively when fish come in closer.     Are you going to catch fish on them, maybe not but they will draw in fish to your area hopefully you can entice them to bite on your other rod. or once you call them in, switch to a smaller presentation.   the other thing is try to target different areas of the water column. not all walleyes feed right on the bottom. the more aggressive and bigger walleye might be right below the ice or suspended up from the bottom.

    • Hole liners would help too. Do you use them?  I think some of that happens in all houses that sit a while with heat on. If a fan is forcing heat down from the ceiling into a marginally/uninsulated floor a ton of heat transfers. Just a guess.
