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.

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff

      Assuming the ratios given to Cliff by the hatchery are accurate, then:   With Hatchery:  708 quarts X 100,000 eggs is 70,800,000 eggs.  Survival rate is (low end) 75%, so total fry is 53,100,000.  If 10% go back into Vermilion, that's net +5,310,000 new fry this year.   Natural reproduction:  70,800,000 eggs at 3% (high end) survival rate would be net +2,124,000 for vermilion this year.   5,310,000/2,124,000 is 2.5X the walleye fry in vermilion this year compared to natural reproduction.   I'd take a 250% return on pretty much anything!     Ancillary benefit is +47,790,000 fry to other MN waters.     I'm sure there's a downside, but I can't see it.

      We got onto the ice down there this winter one time and it was really easy to get on and off of the ice right there.  Looked very friendly for boat traffic and the way the rocks jog out to protect the access it is on my hit list if I need to find an access to launch from this summer.  If you use google earth you can check it out.
