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

    • Britt: Do you know where to view the Ruffed Grouse Society Invitational Hunt in Grand Rapids MN annual harvest statistics by year? Thanks.
    • Watch their interference disappear when you shut your marcum off 🤨
    • Rick was going to start that topic right after this one slowed down! 😅
    • Don't be fooled by stainless cables. Take proper care of them and change them every few years.Do your pivots every couple years too.
    • Might as well get augers in on this too!
    • Just counted 14 of them under and on my feeder. Cardinals, Nuthatches, Juncos, and asst sparrows came in and they chased them all away. It's like one stands guard and chase everything off. Sorry guys, time has come to start thinning the blue rats out!

    • nope..........havent graduated to posting meme's yet!!!!!!!!!
    • Have a marcum LX9 also use a couple Lowrance units. After using them side by side there are features I like on both but just comparing sonar units I'd have to say that my lowrance units squeak out a win for me over the Marcum. Both are very close to the same performance. The Marcum is much easier to just plop and fish where the lowrance units you have to dial in for each situation. I've never been a traditional flasher guy and never see the need to after using a graph.
    • Yep put mine away this past Saturday. I haven't used it since August. I wanted to park my truck inside instead and I would rather hunt then fish anyways...
