Here are the teams that are signed up for the Bemidji event so far. I think Bemduckboy signed up too? Dennis can update on who has sent in their application and entry fees.

If anyone is interested in this event, please visit http://www.fishingsavvy.com for the application and mail the application and $75 team entry fee to Dennis Steele.

1)Jeff/Jeremy
2)Grabs/Shawn
3)Ron/Doug
4)Steve/Ron
5)Team Clueless
6)Chuck/Aaron
7)Tom/Dennis
8)Paul/Kev
9)Matt/Tim
10)Bemduckboy/Joel
11)Brad A./Charlie C

The lakes that are on the list will not be published and pre-fishing will not be allowed. We will draw the lakes just prior to each event. This will be a true mystery and should be a lot of fun!!

Who wants to test their finest fishing skills?? grin.gif

Hey Chuck,

Glad to see that the lakes will NOT be published.

How about printing out lake maps of the lakes that will be in the hat, 1 for each team and then have them at the ready once the lake is chosen for distribution.

Also,
I propose that we all meet at the Cenex truckstop to do the lake draw the morning of at like 8 am. That way we could get some breakfast and then have time to head out, get bait or whatever. It is also right on the intersection of 2 and 71...easy access to all main roads out of town and right by Bluewater Bait. We could even reserve their meeting room for our group. If this will work, let me know and I'll reserve it for us.

This might work best since not everyone will be staying at Ethans.

I agree that meeting there would be a great idea as getting in an out at Ethan's could be tricky with that many boats & trucks in the morning. And a good breakfast before we head out is an awesome idea!

I was trying to brain storm a meeting place, so great idea, Tom. Let's all meet for breakfast at Cenex, and there's also Pete's Place across the road too if we fill the place smile.gif

We will draw the lake there and head out. Plan on meeting at Cenex (junction Hwy 2 and Hwy 71) at 8am sharp!
I'm tentatively planning on eating breakfast around 7am, drawing the lake at 8:00am to give all teams enough time to get bait and drive to the lake.

I will take care of the maps for the lakes.

I'll reserve the room tonight. If it is already taken, there still should be enough room for all. If not, we could do the drawing in the lot.

Let Mark know he'll have a mad rush at 8:10!!...LOL

No go on the room...booked all day.

We'll just need to split up and then meet in the lot at 8?

Between Petes Place and Cenex, there should be plenty of tables for breakfast. There's plenty of room in cenex's lot for us to meet in.

Any update on attendance?

I may know someone that is looking for a partner. With or without a boat I think something could be worked out.

If you are looking for some one to fish with post it here!

I'm in, what about meeting at the Country side restuarant off hwy 2, headed to Bagley about 1 mle from Bemidji? I think they have a big seperate room that is available. Just an idea. Going to signup right now, sounds great...

So is that scoring system as confusing as it looks or what.


Basically if you tie into a Muskie your a winner, hmmm...

Hi Chad,
We are meeting at Cenex just south of Bemidji on Hwy 71. We don't necessarily need a meeting room as we will draw a lake in the parking lot. Teams will likely head up the road to Bluewater bait and get last minute bait/tackle there. They are offering us a 15% discount on bait and tackle.

The scoring is quite easy. Total pounds of fish determines the winners. Muskies are the exception at 25 points for a legal fish because we immediately catch and release with another team's on the water verification. We cannot weigh each muskie.

No, a muskie does not guarantee a win. Look at the Cass Lake results. smile.gif

Who are you teaming up with?

Actually the scoring is as simple as it gets.

1pt per pound of fish and you can weigh one persons daily limit each day, best two day total wins.

Each species does have minimum length requirements.

Chuck you must have been typing at the same time I was! Nice work.

Glad to se quite a few fishing this event.

Just curious as to how many folks plan to camp at my place?

Hey Chuck - why don't you let me know all the lakes that are in the mix and I will take the liberty of printing out maps for everyone?!? grin.gifgrin.gif

We'll be in the area Friday afternoon/evening. Planning to do some smallie fishing on our way up from the Cities. Thinking about hitting Mille Lacs but if the wind is bad we may turn to that spot you mentioned Tom or then head up to Spider.

Hey Tom and Doug, if you guys see this shoot me an e-mail with some info on the two smallie spots we talked over dinner at Ron's place.

Dennis just got Bemduckboy's entry form so that's another team. Those two are pretty good fishermen, look out for those two, or should I say, just follow them around...LOL grin.gif

Grabs, email on its way.

Oh yea, Ethan, we'll be there too.

Tom, you know I couldn't catch a dead fish in a short barrel with no water in it besides nobody will see us as my boat is camo - duh!!

I'm looking forward to putting faces to names as well as getting a whole weekend to fish.

Nice to see some new teams signing up for this event! Should be a great time. Hope to see some people around the fire Friday night at Ethan's too. Any of you local folks feel free to stop by and say Hi Friday night.

Ethan,
I'm trying to respond to your email from last night but it keeps bouncing back to me as undeliverable. Can you send me another and confirm your return address?

Sorry I can't make the mystery event. I really wanted to, but my email explains why.

Thanks.

Hey Bob O - I got one from ya.

To those camping at my place this weekend - I have not reserved a porta John for the 3 teams that plan to stay, so I am just going to have our basement open at all times and you guys can use the house whenever you need to. This way it saves everyone a little money. If you guys prefer otherwise, let me know and I should still be able to get one for the event.

See everyone this weekend!!

That's fine Ethan, with only 3 teams camping there it shouldn't be a big deal. Plus there are plenty of woods around too.

    • So you really wanted a fancy Grill, not a smoker? Smokers do take up a lot more time but I'm having a lot of fun with my Char grill smoker. 
    • What the.... didn't you just get that for x-mas?  A great read on pellet grills gents, call me cheap or old school but I'm still stuck on open pit and charcoal on the big rig. 
    • My slicer works well yet at 130 and it's not almost fully cooked.
    • Thanks for some of the tips. I will try it in the next couple of weeks when i have time. I have read to smoke till about 150 internal temp does it make a diffrence if it goes to 130 or 150?
    • that makes 2 of us. Not sure what the deal is but going back and looking at old posts its doing the same to those pics as well. and there were no issues with those prior.   maybe has to do with the site being down over the weekend and some changes were made? @Rick
    • Looks good to me rundrave.  Is it just me or my phone, but the pics are on roids and I need glasses to read what's typed all of a sudden...
    • I've done both wet and dry brines with much better results with the dry. As grainbelt stated you can mix up whatever sweetness you like. Here's a simple one but pretty good. Its ALL per pound of meat.   1- Tbsp of tenderquick  1.5 Tbsp brown sugar  1/4 tsp black pepper  1 tsp garlic powder ( optional) Mix all the spices together and coat the belly , depending on the size you might have to cut it in half,  this is when you do that and stuff em in two 2 gallon ziplocs.   You can add some maple syrup to the bags as well,flip them  every day for 6 or 7 days then rinse them off real well,  put them on a wire rack and place back in the fridge uncovered. Next day smoke , and like grainbelt said your target internal temp is around 130, let them cool off and wrap up in plastic wrap for the next day of slicing. It might sound a lot of steps but its not that bad, with great results!! Good luck.    
    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
