Brainerd jaycees

Recommended Posts

Planning to attend the event this year. Not really expecting much in the way of serious fishing or prizes. Seems more like one of those things you just gotta say you did once.

I would like to hear from anyone that has done it. Things to bring/not to bring. Tactics, baits, parking. Pretty much anything you are willing to share.

I would like the opportunity to attend once in my lifetime also if possible, had an extrodinary time at camp confidence with our kids which is a benefactor from this event and the jaycees. Kudos to all who make it happen.

Bait any bait works that comply with the rules at least.

All bait fi­sh must be four inches or smaller. Any bait fish more than four inches long will not be allowed within the contest area.

( I usually have a jig head with wax worms and then a minnow down )

I always brought my dual head tank on top heater to stay warm

I use a coffee can with charcoal in it to keep the ice hole open


I feel that the more beer I drink the more chances I have to win.

Bring your date!


Have fun!

I don't know about parking I usually have traveled from on the lake all ready

BRING WARM CLOTHES!........I have done this several times and it is usually brutally cold. There are several bus shuttles and they do a good job getting you back and forth, but be prepared to wait a long time to get back to your car at the end as everybody is leaving at the same time. A backpack would be a good idea as you have to walk in and out and load whatever you bring into the bus.

    • Box? i don't think I've ever seen them but will be looking in a little while
    • Buy a box of cheesy tots.  Cook.   Use rack over sheet pan on grill or in oven.  😀
    • Cheesy tots sound great! Anyone got a recipe?
    • If you're feeling adventurous some time follow the same process you just explained but instead of using a rib rub try using a generous amount of Montreal Chicken seasoning with yellow mustard as your glue.  Also, try a wing or thigh before using the Famous Dave sauce.   Goof Luck
    • I took wings, thighs and legs and put rib rub on them and let them sit for 4 hours then I smoked them for about 90 minutes this morning. Tonight I put them on the grill to crisp up and slathered with Famous Dave's. I seem to kill chicken on the grill but with the smoker I can regulate better plus all that flavor. Only way I'll do chicken now!
    • The grain belt is a bigger sin.😁
    • Yes, I noticed the bottled water in the back👺
    • I did 2 racks of St. Louis style ribs on the pellet smoker yesterday, rubbed with smoky mesquite seasonings...  so good no bbq sauce was used when they were eaten!!!  did the 3-2-1 method but used different temps from the last time I did them...  started at 175 for 3 hrs, then 230 wrapped and finished unwrapped at 230...  Oh Yea!!!
