Ice Leaders Pro Challenge

Recommended Posts

Hey fellow anglers,
On Feb 17th, Fishing Minnesota will be hosting the first annual Ice Leaders Pro Challenge on Mille Lacs Lake. The event will be held starting at 9am from Mac’s Twin Bay and will end at 4pm.
Everyone is encouraged to attend.
The cost will be $5 per person and trophies along with prize money will be awarded to the winners. The total prize money will be determined by the number of participants.
This will be more of a fun event than anything else, so please make arrangements to attend. A list of the rules are as follows-

Rules For Multi-Species Ice Fishing Contest

1) Entrants will be paired into groups of two (2) if there is an odd number, one group will have three (3).

2) Entrant with last name beginning closest to the letter A will get his/her choice of spot to fish first. If the other entrant so chooses, after the mid-way point of the tourney, both entrants must move to the second entrants spot of choice. In event of a team that consists of 3 participants, the time will be divided into thirds.

3) Both entrants must fish within 200 feet of each other.

4) All contestants must be back to the tourney headquarters by the time specified or face disqualification.

5) Entrants may fish anywhere on the lake, however, entrants will not be allowed to leave lake surface in order to reach another portion of the lake or to return to tournament headquarters by deadline. All vehicles must leave from the starting point.

6) One (1) legal limit of fish may be registered by each entrant.

7) Scores will be kept on the official score sheet which will be handed out at the beginning of the tourney.

8) Fish must be immediately measured, scored by the opposite entrant, and then immediately released.

9) Fish will be measured with mouth CLOSED and tail PINCHED.

10) Fish that are scored MUST remain on the score sheet. No score “Culling”. When a fish is caught, the entrant must decide weather or not to score the fish or release it without being scored in hopes of catching a larger fish.

11) In case of tie, LARGEST fish of any species will determine the winner.

    • That's smart IMO.  I donated a soon to expire can of bear spray to a guy who was hunting that range about 5 years ago and he sprayed it in a bear's face from 8' away!   He swears to this day that I saved his life because he wasn't going to bother bringing bear spray.
    • Tomorrow is my day to shut everything down, turn water off and say good by tell  next May, boy that hurts!    
    • First problem: work.  Had something come up last minute on Tuesday that required I come in Wednesday.  Finally out and ready to get some rest before hitting it for 4 days instead of 5, but I’m here!   Birds have been disappearing this week on the strong winds but there are still pockets and presumably more on the border areas/ice line.  Nice weather predicted for tomorrow and a good bunch of birds were scouted today.  We’ll see what happens.  I hear we’re in for a big blow this weekend.
    • Well may be next year I'll try and creep by!  Depending who wins in Midterms and if we are still talking to each other then!! 😋
    • Anyone care to help out on this topic?
    • Blue Jays don't chew holes in my soffit But I only have a couple and they don't seem to bother the other birds.   One reason might be that they are too big to sit on the perches on the feeders, so they get to scratch for spillage.  
    • Yeah, of that deer farm and the ag boys who allegedly supervise them.  Or maybe we will get the story of how it has been around for many decades and nobody noticed it until now...
    • Seeing good numbers of birds so far this year.  
    • I went up north to our seasonal spot this past weekend and winterized the camper. 😥   We also ended up moving it to a different spot in the campground that is larger and more private and has a deck! I already can't wait for next years camping season! Still waiting for a visit from @leech~~ too. 😉   I might still go up again this fall if the weather ever warms up but this Saturday looks like it will be cold again up there. 35 degrees and windy is the forecast. We can still use our camper but there is no water in the campground so it is not conducive for bringing the wife. If we would still get a warmer weekend (above freezing at night) they will turn the water on in the shower houses at least so we could have a bathroom.
