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!!!!

    • that looks slick but probably pretty spendy if you need to use the refillable cylinder. I wonder if coleman would work?  I just watched a different video where the one pounders are filled while using a small curved forceps to vent while filling. Went to garage and filled 3 that way. Worked dandy. Nothing has to be chilled. 
    • The one thing I liked on my Elite-5 was that when a fish was about to bite the return would turn very red. I don' tget that with the Showdown. Bit it does get a darker black.
    • did you just keep it square and cut a slot through it? any idea which one? seems like a bunch of options; https://www.homedepot.com/b/Building-Materials-Glass-Plastic-Sheets/LEXAN/N-5yc1vZbrdgZ5tg   i see 11x14" sheets for $8 a piece, but they only have a .093" thickness  
    • Chip is on the list, but will wait to see how good the included mapping is. Making my own will be great as there are no detailed maps for a lot of water I fish.   I may have triggered someone here with that link. 2 more sold since my last post. Seller also has the 5 for a good price. My eyes aint getting any younger though! 
    • I got an old  10lb'er on craiglist  for $10 a few years ago, got it re-certified at a local propane co-op and never looked back.  I love it.   Has anyone used this, if so how do you like it: Flame King Refillable 1 LB Empty Propane Cylinder Tank  with Refill Kit that looks like it would be ideal. 
    • I'm sure you included that link for a reason, so I'll go ahead and say it...you got a crazy good deal on that Helix 7!   It's going to take a little getting used to compared to the Vex, but you're really going to enjoy it.  Assuming you already have a Lakemaster Chip for it, or are getting one?
    • I’ve had this same issue myself for years. I like using a hose to a bigger tank but the 20lber is impractical unless able to drive out. I’ve searched for the 5lb and can find them easily ( Cabela’s, Fleet Farm). But the price will kill a guy. I can buy 2 maybe 3 20lb cylinders for the price of one 5lb. My solution, just continue to buy and use 1lb. Sams club is by far the cheapest at $12.50 (ish) for a 4 pack. I can usually get by on about 1 cylinder per 2 outings on average. Takes 4-6 4 packs per season for Me. Which yes is a lot compared to just refilling them but “convince” is more appealing then the cost IMO.
    • I used lexan... thought about using plexiglass but plexi and cold don't mixed when you have little ones around. I can stand on these and I am 275#
    • anyone ever cut some out of clear plexiglass for their hole covers with a gap for your line for rattle reels/bobber rods? i wouldnt think they would have to be round to fit exactly in the hole,  just a square to protect from falling objects would work? $17+/cover seems steep from the store
    • I needed something newer in the boat so I got a helix ice 7 coming tomorrow and will be wet by Friday.  I already have a vex 8,18, and 20 so it better blow my socks off! The 8's days might be numbered.. The ability to make your own lake maps really appealed to me as I like more out of the way places. I ice fished so much last year the noise of the vex started to wear on me. Terrible problem right? haha  I needed another good reason to get out in the boat more too..    Nobody had them in town nearby so I shopped price and who could get it to me asap. Decided yesterday to do this and "needed" it by tomorrow.  This seller offered both price and speed. Helix ice 7 549.00 shipped
