I've heard they're in Lake Lemon and one of the lakes at Shakamak.

You guys up there have more plentiful walleye and musky options, but there is water down here that holds them.

There are allot of fish in you neck of the woods (South West) that are not AVA to the other southerners and even some central guys. Were looking at all that.

Fellas the one thing we want to do is make it fair to all our members here. The staff's determination is that there are more species in the north, and more lakes to find them in. The contest rules will not be set up by what is in your "backyard". The contest rules will not be set up so that guys have to travel to find a species to enter. Fair across the board.

Kick, when it comes to doing these online gigs there are certain issues that come up. "Policing" private water is one of them. There is absolutely no way of certifying where the fish came from without making it too complicated rules wise. I suppose one could say that fishing a pond gives a guy an advantage when it comes to LMB, bluegill, and catfish...but we have tried to address those issues.

I understand that its more or less an honesty policy which I know most would follow.If a guy was to cheat to win then he would only be cheating himself. I do think private ponds should be off limits. One can also argue that a guy with a boat would have an advantage over a guy that does not. Its complicated and no easy way to make it completely fair for everyone.
