The hard core competitors have the whole lake to fish.

When
We meet and register or check-in at Schusters Resort from 7 am to 10 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 Ice Fishing World Champion 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, Schweigert gear, Stone Legacy gear, Frabill Gear and more.... smile.gif.

These events have been a blast. I have fished all the major events so far (Winnie, Mille Lacs, Red) and even one of the additional gatherings that was held on West Battle of which I have the bragging rights of 'Worlds Greatest Ice Angler'!!

I hope to see a big group on LOW as it should be the best event yet - tons of great prizes to be had!! Not to mention the fish should be snapping!!

See ya'll there!

I will be making this one also!! I have also made Winne, Mille Lacs, and Red and also the get together on Minnetonka.

If you want to meet up with some very knowledgable fisherman These are the events to do it. I have been very impressed with all the Prostaffs willingness, friendliness to share tips and tactics and let me tag along to their spots before, during and after the events.

I have met some great people and made some friends. Leading to more good fishing opportunities and good times. It's hard to pass that up anytime!

I'll be there with bells on at 5am! Man I can't wait, I truly look forward to seeing everyone again, it seems to get even more fun each and every time. I love getting to know other FM'ers, as well as getting to know fellow prostaff even better. You really picked a great group of guys Rick!

Come join us and meet fellow FM'ers, everyone I've met has been a great guy or gal! The people and Brats are enough to get me there, and the prizes don't hurt either...

I just got back from LOW today, and the fish are biting! We caught a lot of walleyes and saugers everyday as well as a few tulipees, perch, and eelpout. Here's a 29 incher I caught two days ago...

47b4dc08b3127cceb9281cf271820000008610

The fish are moving closer in to shore and there is no need to drive 15 miles out anymore. I predict a lot of fish are going to be caught in two weeks at the ICE Series and some big ones too! Hope to see a lot of you there!

Good Fishin,
Matt Johnson

Nice fish Matt. I have been after those pigs all winter. Is it still swimming? I know you CPR, so I should have not asked. I am still working on the wife for the event.

Yep, a replica is in the process.

To be honest, I had one that I lost right under the ice that I think would have been a little bigger then this one. Hopefully we see a few more pigs in two weeks at the ICE Series.

Northlander,
I'll e-mail you about saturday. Might have a little problem, we'll have to work things out. Looking forward to the ICE Series.

Good Fishin,

I'm there, and I'm bringing friends! I wouldn't miss this one. LOW at this time of the year can be some of the best ice angling you'll find anywhere.

Have you folks decided approximately where your going to be setting up shop yet? LOW is a huge lake, and travel out there right now is not real easy.

frozenminnow,

  • Take 72 North
  • Left onto MN-11/MAIN ST W. Continue to follow MN-11
  • Turn RIGHT onto MN-172
  • Turn RIGHT onto CR-376

I believe Schusters is off of 376, or else its off of 172, either way you will see it, there's a big sign or you right. About an hour from West Wind, give or take.

See you saturday!

Good Fishin,
Matt Johnson

The Little King,
Dave, "hooking" up with Matt Johnson will be great for you and Ed. Best of luck to you on this trip.

Sadly and with great regret, I will not be attending the LOTW I.C.E. Series. My mom passed today and I will be flying to Texas for her funeral.

Dave, please check with Rick Paquin at the registration to pick up a sample pack of Catch-N Tackle products from me and Richard Smith/Bio-Bait.
Thanks for coming to the LOTW I.C.E. Series tournament... what a drive! Wish I could have hooked-up with you guys. Next time, for sure!

even with the front coming in Friday/Saturday, Matt still got us on fish. Not the numbers we were hoping for, but still with all that water out there, we still got some fish...Heck the derby was won out there, but I a gap in the ice kept me from getting in in time so I got DQ'ed, but still had a good time. Next year I am going to drive the pick up, so getting in time will not be a problem. So watch out next year the flatlanders will be making a showing.

Little King,
It was nice meeting you and getting to chat some. Too bad I couldn't have put you on more fish, I would have liked to see you pull up a pig walleye after the long drive. I plan on heading your way this summer to fish with Bob, make sure we get together and hit the water when I'm there. Take care!

Little King's pout...

I believe it went about 9.1 pounds.

Good Fishin,
Matt Johnson

    • looks great what kind of a heater are you putting in it
    • My wife's on it!  That is-making soup😀
    • Got mine today in my work truck 😀 
    • Not much got done over the weekend as i was sick and had no energy to work.  I did manage to get the top bunk built.
    • Mmm mm Thanks!!!!!!!!
    • your package went in the mail today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Figured I'd loop back on this with an update.  I ended up getting the Weber Spirit 3 burner.  Picked it up at Ace Hardware.  Its the same price everywhere ($449) but Ace will assemble it, deliver it, and haul away the old one for no charge.  Bought it Saturday morning had it sitting on the back patio by 3pm that same afternoon.   I ended up looking at a lot of grills including many brands of gas grills, pellet grills, and some charcoal grills.  There were some other gas grills that I liked, they looked to be made solidly from good materials and they came at a decent price.  However, they all lacked a decent warranty.  The webers use less stainless steel than some of the others and I'm not 100% sure what the china production will do to the quality and longevity of a Weber but they do come with the best warranty that I saw.  I believe grates and flavorizer bars have a 5 year warranty and everything else has a 10 year warranty.  Customer service and part availability was also a big selling point.  Weber parts look to be easily available and if you do end up having to replace the grate, flavorizer bars, and burners it will only set you back $150 which should get you many more years out of the grill.    I let my almost 3 year old son pick the color since he came with to help pick it out.  I couldn't argue with his choice of red.  It is clearly the fastest looking grill, now I just need to add a racing stripe. 
    • Saturday morning I was able to put my tag on a nice bird. If I did no get to put some scouting time in I would of moved too fast. I knew these bird was going to show up but he never made a peep on roost or the ground. I was able to call in the hens with him following. The hens yelped twice on the ground and that was it. Had other birds gobbling but I knew this guy was around. It was him with 3 Jakes and 3 hens that pretty much stayed by themselves and nothing to do with the larger group of birds. I was able to see him the Saturday before opener and trail cameras showing he was coming through around 720 each morning. I shot him at 7:15 plan worked out great. 20 Gauge is becoming my favorite gun for turkeys. He was just a couple oz’s shy of 24lbs. double beard 11inch, spurs 1inch. Some big birds dropping. My dads was 25lbs and Protourbait above 24. Might head back to NE this weekend see how the week goes. I have WI left for a couple tags.
    • I personally don't use hens often.  When I do she's in a breeding position near a strutting tom.  I usually go jakes of various postures or no decoys.  I like to keep them guessing where that hen is at.  I've had too many mature Tom's hang up, strut and gobble until the real hens show up to escort him away when using just hens.
    • What would be the reasoning behind just using hen\ hens decoys? To put the toms at ease? I usually use the standard hen / jake combo.
