If you really want to catch Pout at the Festival
1) get away from the crowds
2)  find a rocky bottom 20-40ft with deep water nearby
3) Keep it quiet and dark
4) Jig with glow northland rattle jigs with a treble dropper
5) tipup with a small sucker/ big shiner 6" off bottom
6) dont get so drunk you cant fish! ;D

Ill be up there!

If you have a lake trout set up or trophy walleye set up, then you'll be fine.
