    Just wondered now that the big Brainerd tourney has been postponed 2 weeks to February 6th, how many members from this site will be attending?

    We are taking our usual Iowa group of 12 but have a huge cabin on the lake rented this year by Nisswa? http://www.goodoldaysresort.com/ Also have a bunch of our guys who bought extra holes for tip-ups since the winner of the new truck last year pulled his northern out of a hole about 50 foot away from us 😉

    Just wondering how anyone did that went to the tourney. I myself caught 34 perch but all too small. 5 guys in our group did get on the leaderboard for a little while and the biggest fish caught by a member of our bunch was a 14 inch eye that weighed .73lbs. A guy about 50 yards from us did pull in a nice 5.33lb eye in 4fow that won the tourney. All in all a great time and cant wait until next year! 😉

    Number 132 Steve Pomrenke, Nome, AK. Do you think it’s the same one from the gold dredging show? That’s a long ways to go ice fishing. How many people participate?

    Congrats sparkie…lots of fish caught this year. We were fishing in 7fow on the NE edge and that guy from Alaska came from the north, landed his ski plane on the ice just east of us, unloaded his fishing gear and walked 50 yards to the tourney site to start fishing. What an entrance! 😉

    Ran to Fleet and Farm in Ankeny on the 1st and bought 15 tickets myself. A few guys canceled so we are down to 10 now staying in a cabin on the lake that sleeps 15. Gonna be a blast like always!
