    Is there going to be a Saugerama this year? I haven’t fished it in about 7 years, but was thinking of giving it a go again and was wondering if a date had been set yet.

    I thought rule 12 is interesting. I could probably apply that rule to all of my ice fishing trips and catch the same number of fish.

    That rule is in place because P4 is border water with WI. You can legally fish 3 lines per angler on the WI side of the river. They want all teams to be limited to the same number of lines regardless of where they choose to fish.
