URL Crappie Contest!!! February 21st, 2004 - The ICE Series

Recommended Posts

Guest

The ICE Series is not too far off, ok maybe a little further then I make it sound, but why not start thinking about it now. With all the cold temps and snow, ice fishing is right around the corner. Here are a few details for the ICE Series:

The four lakes that we will fish are:

Lake Winnibigoshish: January 10, 2004.
Tourney Headquarters at Denny's Resort.
Phone: (888) 665-2298
This lake is famous for walleye, perch, nice pike, crappies, gills and both largemouth/smallmouth bass can be found here. We will fish this lake for hot early ice action. It can be fantastic fishing especially for huge pike, jumbo perch, slab gills and crappies and let's not forget all those walleyes.


Mille Lacs Lake: January 24, 2004.
Tourney Headquarters - Fisher's Resort.
Phone : (866) 684-2221
This lake is a walleye factory. It looks like the jumbo perch are back. You also have a shot at nice pike. Crappies, gills and both largemouth/smallmouth bass can be found here if you search hard enough.


Upper Red Lake: February 21, 2004.
Tourney Headquarters - West Wind Resort.
Phone: 218-647-8998
This is one of the top slab crappie producers in the nation. This lake also contains some monster northern pike and lots of pesky perch.


Ice Fishing World Championship
Lake of the Woods: March 13, 2004.
Tourney Headquarters -Schuster's Resort
Phone: (800) 243-2412

This is one of the top walleye/sauger producers in the nation. It is truly a multi-specie lake. Plenty of hog pike and muskie available too. This lake can certainly have some of the best fishing to be found anywhere.


For more information check out the Iceleaders HSOforum:

Iceleaders and the ICE Series


Ask any questions you might have and I'm sure someone can help you out.

Should be a great time and I expect that a lot of fish will be caught. It is pretty inexpensive and the locations are awesome! Not to mention all the fun we will have fishing with fellow FM members and Pro Staff too!

I hope to see a lot of you there!


Good Fishin,
Matt

Sweet, too bad there's not one closer to the cities - like Tonka or Waconia or something. Millelacs sounds like fun though.

Slow Jigger,

Might not be like the Winnie trip we had last year, Yogi sure is an awesome skier wink.gif Drop me an e-mail and we can car pool to these events. Putting the deck off until spring also gives you a few more bucks for ice fishing wink.gif

Yeah, should be fun this year at the ICE Series. A lot of great lakes. Here's how I invision it...gills the size of my dinner plates at Vermillion...2 pound crappies at Red Lake...a mess of 12 inch perch and a 10 pound walleye at Mille Lacs...and that 14 pound walleye I'm gonna get up on LOW...

Come on, let me have my fun. Never know, it could happen wink.gif

Good Fishin,
Matt

MJ5,
I edited your post above to include the Winnie part of the series (we changed it from Vermilion).

IceLeader's Challenge Event Series (ICE Series)

It's only $10 if you sign-up now or $15 if you wait a little too long to sign-up for wach event. Enter as many as you wish.

We will be giving away Depth finders-MarCum LX3's, Fish Houses-Otters, Power Augers-Eskimos, Tackle-Today's Tackle (Ice Buster Bobbers)Scenic Tackle(Angel Eyes,Glow Devils)-Bad Dog-Custom Spins and Jigs, Jackets-Columbia, Thorne Bros Sweetheart Rods, LakeMaster LakeMaps and more are coming.

At least give the Winnie Event a shot. We've arranged to have one of the Premier Winnie Ice Fishing guides on the lake to give everyone a few tips on how and where to fish on it prior to the contest start.

We're having a big feed afterwards and then off to test out gear and do some more fishing.

Oh yes ready here, ifish2 and I are signed up for all 4 events I dont know how much she will fish, but if she wants to stay at the hotel I'm sure I can go with someone else.
I have never ice fished WBG so this should be fun, and to learn from some of the best at the same time, can it get any better?

Each I.C.E. Series event will be a great time for EVERY level of angler.

KIDS ARE FREE!!!!

We'll have an on ice location for the weigh-ins, situated on a likely fish holding spot. We will have Pro Staff available within a 1/4 mile of that location to help out those who would like help or just want to learn more about ice fishing.

The hard core competitors have the whole lake to fish. We meet at the Resort Headquarters at 7 am, drive out to the on ice location where Pro Staff might just give a few hints as to what is happening on the lake and potential good fishing spots. Everyone starts fishing at 8 am.

2 PM for weigh-ins. We crown the World Greatest Ice Angler and draw for an awesome line-up of prizes (Otter Fish Houses, MarCum Depth Finders or Underwtaer Cameras, Eskimo Augers, Eskimo Fish Houses, Catch-n.com tackle, Custom Jigs and Spins tackle, Yukon Tracks Gear, Thorne Bros Sweetheart Rods, Bio Bait, LakeMaster LakeMaps, Ice Buster Bobbers from Todays Tackle, TackleCity.com Panfish jigs, Scenic Tackle Angel Eyes, Glow Devils, Ryans ATV Racks, and more.....).

Oh yes, we will also have a tailgate style feed, brats, fish fry, and bring a little of your own fixins if you'd like, we'll have grills and fryers for you.

While this is going on most of the sponosrs above will be letting you try out their products for yourself. Pro Staff will be there to help and possibly put you on some more fish as we hit that all important dusk bite.

This is going to be fun. Get your friends, family, girlfriends, boyfriends, kids, aunts, uncles, wives and husbands out to at least one of the events to see what all this I.C.E. Series action is all about.

It's getting close! I can't wait! Everyone should try to get out and fish for a cheap price, eat some grub, have a chance at some prizes, learn about new products and techniques, as well as meet your fellow FM'ers. It should be a great time!

I just may have to look at my calendar for the LOTW and RED trip. I'm planning a trip with the GF, might as well have some fun with the I.C.E Series...I'll look into it because it sounds like a lot of fun.

I HOPE it would be more fun than the ICE TEAM set-up? I fished in some of their trap attacks and the community here is better than there. I would assume that people would be open to helping (as they are on the forum) and talking tips of all sorts at these events, as well as stay competitive.

The first ICE Series event is only two weeks away and it will be here fast. Lake Winnibigoshish is the destination and fishing is the name of the game. Walleyes, perch, and pike dominate these waters and high numbers of each. If you are looking for jumbo perch this is the place, not to mention some hawg walleyes and monster pike. Here's a picture of what you can expect at the ICE Series...and the jumbo perch that Winni is so famous for...

Some tips, techniques, hot spots, new products, food, friends, great prizes, and a whole lot of fishing (and fish wink.gif)...thats what you can expect at the ICE Series!

See all of you soon!

Good Fishin,
Matt Johnson

I am interested in fishing Winnie the 10-11 in the I.C.E. series, but exactlly how does the tourney work? I saw some kind of point system, I pound of walleye=1 Point, and 1 Pound of Perch=1 Point? Is this how it works? so can you keep a limit of perch? otherwise it wouldn't make much sense to go after the jumbo's if you can only keep a few, 1 nice walleye would be the same as 4 or 5 perch? Please explain how it all works.
Thanks Alot, looking forward to it!

You do not need to fish for just one species.You can fish and for and wiegh in any and all the species.For example you could come in with a limit of perch,two walleyes,a pike and a eelpout.The total weight of ALL your fish is then scored at one point per pound.
This way you can target active fish or what your best at fishing for and if the bite is off you can try for something that is biting.Makes it a lot of fun too! smile.gif

The tourney limits are there to roughly equal the weight of each species.

We will also have some ProStaff and local area guides there to help out those who are new to ice fishing.Its all about the fun and there will be a lot of that around! smile.gif

Trophies and titles(along with bragging rights smile.gif)will be awarded to the biggest bags and the prizes will be awarded by your registration ticket so no matter what your skill level is you have an equal chance at wining a big prize like a new Eskimo auger,Marcum,Otter or Eskimo ice house,and the list goes on!
There are so many prizes that your chance of winning something is VERY good.

Hope to see you there!

    • Just picked up a 1978 Bethany compact 560. Got it set up but I can't figure out what these 2 adjustable poles are for.  Anyone know? 
    • friend good luck to you and your wife!!!!   I do know where you are at....  my prayers to ya............
    • Anyone been out this past week? My bird hunting has been cut short this year so I am depending on others to keep me up to date. My wife has Breast Cancer and is starting radiation treatments soon, lasting a good part of October. I may be able to do some deer hunting depending how she is feeling. She has had surgery and the outlook is great and she feels great so that's the main thing. Good luck to all you hunters.
    • dont everyone post at once!!!!!!🤣😂 hummers bailed from itasca county, got a couple still around cold spring, seen them yesterday. but i havent seen any robins in a while. anyone else???????????????????????????????????
    • My routing was keep all the drive train zerks greased every few outings, change oil & filter yearly and front and rear diff by-yearly unless I did a lot of swamp running.  There are a bunch of helpful videos on the Tube. 
    • I was out today putting up a deer stand and came across a lobster mushroom. I don't think I have seen any this late before. I will be enjoying the little gem tonight.
    • thanks for the write-up - and great pics!  hopefully these stories will keep me interested until i have my own west hunt.   good luck to all
    • Always enjoy the "out west" write ups!!!  I really appreciate you taking the time to share your journey!! 
    • Well I wasn’t going to do any fluid changes untill next fall but it’s been a little more than a year and I just clicked 1k miles. About 30-40 hours since last oil change. I think I’m just going to do it. So last time I just took it to a dealer but it’s expensive, the machine is gone for at least a week and it’s a hassle to deal with dropping off and picking up. So I think I’m going to try it myself. I’ve changed oil on things many times before so this isn’t anything new. I’m going to get ahold of my dealer and see what I need and have them walk me through the steps. I want to change the oil, the front and rear gear case oil and I’d like to do the transmission fluid also. I also just saw Polaris has a deal now through the 1st of oct for $10 off an oil change kit. So I think I just need an oil change kit and a quart of gearcase oil? I also have a new spark plug I’ll through in and go through the machine like I always do every few months. I know @leech~~ had a magnum what did you always do for maintence? 
    • enjoyed the story but this view is incredible  your lucky you get to hunt there
