Avon Anglers Elite Icefishing tourney - $10,000.00 payout!!!

Recommended Posts


$10,000 payout, but what's the prize structure? And how many teams have to enter to get to that payout? Not that it matters much to me...good opportunity to fish the South end of the lake! I've no illusions about being able to put together a winning bag, especially of all three species. If I were a betting man, though, I'd guess that guys who've got some insights into the crappie on that lake will clean up. 1 lb+ bluegill are commonplace (well, common enough anyway), but big perch and crappie are more likely to win the tournament. I've seen honest 3 lb+ crappie from Honeoye. That's alot of weight if you can get into them. Five crappie alone could put you in the money.

Give me a call if you're fishing Thursday.
