Brainerd Jaycees Contest

Recommended Posts

Good morning FMers,

Just trying to keep you abreast to what is up in the Gull Lake area. This cold shot has been a savior. We are gaining on the ice big time and we are full speed ahead with preparations for the largest fishing contest in North America. All the preparation for 3 hours, it's an unbelievable event. I guess it's like the Super Bowl of ice fishing. You can find more info at icefishing.org. Right now out on the north end of Gull we are at about 14-18 inches of ice and gaining fast. I'm still thinking we might make the 20 inch mark before Saturday. S&W Bait will be open 24 hours on Friday and is your official bait shop. We will have all the bait you will ever need (including Rosy Reds). Tickets will be sold by the Jaycees back at our counter on the north end of the building. We will also be signing up people for a chance to win 1 of 3 sets of Arctic Armor. We will also have some stock of bibs and jackets that you can try on and purchase. Shuttle service will be leaving from Brainerd International Raceway which is not even a mile south of S&W. You can sense the electricity level rising!

Good luck and see you soon,

Walleyedan

Can't Wait!

I am bringing 19 friends and family from Tampa to San Francisco and everywhere in between. We'll stop in on Friday and stock up. My guess is most of those Southerners could use some Artic Armor!

Crumpler,

Sounds like fun. You get their B U TT's in there and we'll fit them. Not sure what they will do with it for the rest of the season. Maybe we should rent it? Maybe not. The ice house that is going to be given away on Saturday is parked in front of S&W Bait/Walleyedan's Guide Service right now you can come check it out and register to win it and a set of Arctic Armor.

Walleyedan

See Ya,

Walleyedan

    • Dude, do you know how to use the emoticons?  It's always good to use one of these when making a Joke!  🙂 😀 😅 😂  😉
    • All deer in SE MN need to be wiped out.  90% herd reduction isn't going to stop the disease.  It is wreckless and stupid to do any less.  The whole state herd is going to go in the toilet if the SE guys don't get on the triggers and get their situation under control.  This talk of us vs the deer farms is a stupid smokescreen designed to try to take the focus off private land owners that don't want to cooperate with the mitigation plan.       Anything less will set the stage for CWD to roll hard to the north and get into the big woods where there will be zero chance of ever finding every deer.   
    • Gettin er done.    I have to take the "T" that the transducer pipe goes through to work so I can open the ID so the pipe can slide freely. 
    • I have a couple Garmin units for my boat. I'm going to also use one for ice fishing. Got it powered up and started playing with the colors schemes I'd like to use. The only one I like so far is with a blue background. But what I found that I like better is the black background the humminbird uses. Maybe Garmin could do an update to add a black mode. Lol. 
    • How do you keep those solid whole covers from freezing over the hole?
    • The ant moat idea seems interesting.  Go to a second had store or a Goodwill type of place and see if you can find a Bundt pan.  Use that and see how things work out.  
    • Could you be a little more specific on this cocktail timing deal? Size matters! 😏  
    • I have been doing whole prime rib on a weber grill since I was 20 years old and they cost 2.99 lb at the long ago defunct Country Club Market in St. Paul. I put the coals on each side for indirect heat and add salt and pepper and garlic. For the garlic I put the fat side up and take a knife and put holes into the fat down to meat. In each hole I put a garlic clove. I don't add any pellets or wood chips for smoke. I just want to taste that beef cooked in owns fat with a few spices but go ahead and add some smoke to it if that is what you want.
    • The storm last weekend  has moved the birds into the heavy duty winter cover. We had pretty good hunting in the cattails the last couple of days. Perfect weather helped.
    • In my humblest of opinions the simpler the better for prime rib.   Take it out of the refrigerator, salt (kosher) the entire piece and let stand until it's at room temp. Stick it into your smoker/oven at 450-500 degrees until crusted (about 1 cocktail). Lower heat to 325. Have a least 3 cocktails before poking it with a thermometer. Remove once internal temp is 120. Let rest for at least 1 more cocktail Cut and serve with horseradish.
