Bass Tournament on Whitefish last weekend

5 posts in this topic

Does anyone know the details on the Bass tournament on Whitefish this last weekend. My wife and I noticed a lot of bass fishermen on the chain Friday with big name sponsors like Rapala and Fuji Film. Just wondering if anyone knew anything about it.

Camp Confidence Skeeter 2 day touranment. Friday was on Whitefish, Saturday on Gull. Pretty much the biggest touranment each year on both of these lakes.

I think Brad Kline won it. The name is familiar, never met him but someone was telling me that he has won a few boats in his day. I think he had 20 or so pounds each day. Red tail chubs on a Lindy Rig. I'm kidding!

I thought it had to be a pretty big tournament based on the number teams we saw, and I have to say I was very surprised all of them seemed very polite on the water. I have heard bad things about tournament fishermen in the past but I can't say I seen any rudeness that day.

The tournament had 50 boats not as big as it has been, The guys all try to give the everyday anglers their space, it probably looked like more boats as we were all running hard.

?Yes Dan Brad Cline did win he is one of the best bass anglers in the state.

I ended up in 9th place had a small bag on WF 15.9 klbs and 22lbs on Gull for 8 fish. We had all nice ones on Gull no biggies, could not get anything over 2.5 lbs on WF

I Heard you caught a 3.5 lb bass on Thursday, I should have asked you where! maybe next year.

      I used XR5AH (which are 5amp) DeWalt 20v max batteries last winter and never ran out of power.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.
