Eel Pout Fesitval

Recommended Posts

I was thinking of going to the eel pout festival this year. I am wondering if it will be worth it. Have any of you been there. What all do I need to bring besides the Busch Light. I was also wondering if it was February 14th and 15th.

I believe it's the first weekend in Feb. You could check on line.

I have been there 5-6 times, just live 20 miles from Walker, and everyone should go once at least.

The main activity seems to be drinking, but there are vendors there and lots of Pout to eat. Some even fish. The best part is you will see lots of crazy people having fun.

Like posted above everyone should experience this at least once.Bring plenty of Busch Light fishing is optional.

It is a worthwhile trip! I used to go every year with a group called "Camp Krusty". You could find us by listening for the live band in the ice house! Anyone know if they still go? I also remember "The Rowty Pouters". They once tried to melt a giant hot-tub in the center of their ice house. What were they thinking (I mean drinking)???

Probably not the best place for youngsters though...

I've been to Pout Fest in walker once and it's kinda like Sturgis meets Red Green grin.gif with a kick of Octoberfest and a hint of grumpy old men. There is a ton of fun and games and lots of good pout among a load of food to eat. Just plain fun for all, almost like the iceleaders events grin.gif

I will be there. You can either party until you drop, or do some serious fishing. Theres plenty of room for both. The Pout fest is Feb 13-15th. It is always held the last weekend of walleye fishing.

I would suggest some zip screws for your boots to go with the beer, a few blondes and a few brunettes would be GREAT, also! A bar on ski's is pretty much a must, a mixed bag of pints to keep you warm is also a GOOD idea.
SEE YA THERE

Its definatly worth going to,a good old time out on the ice.You can fish hard or just put down some rattle reels and play cards. We've assembling a crew from BSU to go down there, we'll be the guys with the pool table.

I'll be there. It's a great time. I might even fish for the first time. During the day, just walk from tent to tent, play a ton of games which involve drinking! Should be fun this year with a good supply of snow. Lots of snowmobiling, but watch the speed on the lake, because they are out in full force watching that!!!!

    • Never heard of the stuff.  English Muffin....Toasting Bread?  I was wondering if you really made French toast with round English muffins? 😵
    • just saw it yesterday in Alex..darn good stuff too!!!
    • that is so great!!!!!  You folks are raising a good son!!!!  
    • Well I couldn’t make it over there yesterday, so my son went over today after school to tell her thank you but he’s going to take his stand down. After a 30 mins conversation with her, he now gained bow hunting, shotgun hunting and turkey season next spring. She told him that he has permission as does the other gentleman and don’t worry about it. This is where it gets good. Cole went out to his stand and guess who shows up asking what he’s doing. The other “kid”. Asking why he is back out there, Cole explained to him that he talked with the land owner and sees no reason why they both can’t be out there. The guy stormed off. So I called him a while ago.....yes the first 15 mins were not some of my best moments, but I finally was able to get to the bottom of his problem. He’s never shot a deer, he’s never shot anything and only took up hunting 3 years ago. Whoever has been “coaching” him has given him some very bad information. Told him things that I’ve never even heard of. So I told him not only will we help set you up, but we will move your stands into good spots, I will hang a double set if wanted and either myself or my son would be glad to sit with you and help walk you through the first time, video tape it and even offered to let him come sit in my ground blind on my field and get him a shot a doe any night. We are all meeting tomorrow night so i can go over some maps with him and show him where I would put my stands at if I were him. I told Him instead of running my son off who could a complete asset to him, learn from him. He might be only 15 but he’s a wealth of knowledge and loves everything about hunting, not just the killing part. He just wants to be in the woods and help others. Looks like a bad situation may turn into a good one.  I hope at some point this fall I can post a picture of my son guiding this gentleman to his first archery deer. 
    • Does anyone know of a place in the Brainerd Lakes area where you can rent a wheelhouse that you're able to tow yourself? I'm not referring to renting through a resort or guide, where you're restricted to the lake and spot they put the house on. I'm looking for one I can haul around. 
    • I did a search ans it seems a shortage happens once in a while. That search came from 2013 and it was the same problem. Hope it just a temporary thing because it makes such great toast.
