We had a blast at the Fishlake tournament, despite some really horrible catching (I caught 3 perch, my daughter reeled in 2 perch and a rainbow). My daughter thought it was the funnest thing ever, and we got this great video of her. Unfortunately, the video doesn't show the little 12" rainbow that kept stealing her bait before she could set the hook! If you have facebook, and wouldn't mind giving our video a like so we can win the contest, I'd appreciate it!

On a gear note, I bought an Eskimo 6 ice tent, used all the anchors, and still had 5/6 of the grommets rip off at the stitching. I was pretty disappointed as it was the first time we used it. I sent it back for a refund, but would love any recommendations on a 6-8 person ice shelter.

Thanks again to all who helped sponsor the tournament, and my stepsister won a great backpack/tacklebox in the raffle.

Sounds like a great time. I'm glad your daughter had fun.


As for the gear, I agree that it shouldn't fail like that, but Fish lake wind can be brutal. I once saw the wind blow apart some guys tent. It looked like a bomb went off in it, with splintered support rods everywhere. I've also seen a couple sail across the ice that weren't staked down adequately.
