Thanks MWT Anglers!

9 posts in this topic

After somewhat of a tough bite during the prefishing period looks like quite a few teams ended up catching fish. We just wanted to thank all of the anglers that fished the MWT Whitefish Chain qualifier. Thanks for stopping in at the bait shop all week. You guys kept us hopping. You guys are a class act. Same goes for the staff working the tournament. Each year that you guys come to town the show just keeps getting better and better. Thanks for coming to the Brainerd area, you guys are welcome back anytime. From everyone here at Sportland Bait and Tackle, your efforts and support are greatly appreciated.

Congratulations to local team Jeff Wohl/Jon Larson on their nice 4th place finish and 2nd biggest walleye of the day. Nice showing for the Nisswa Guide Service guides. I guess it payed off to have good bait in the boat. Nice job fellas!

Jason,

Were there any guides that did not fair well on Sunday? We noticed a few of them going into Cross, did they produce?

Buck12, looks like another good finish for you, look out we are on your tail though. River fishing is next and it is where we do our best. We should have a great showing.

I didn't get a chance to talk to all of the local guide teams. We had a couple of our guides in the tournament. Team Jeff Wohl/Jon Larson finished 4th with 2nd place big fish honors. We also had team Todd Andrist/Jenson, they finished 29th on the day.

Other local guides:

Team Blasing- 34th place

Dan Eigen/Tim Hanske- 40th place

Toby Kvalevoog-75th place

Good luck the rest of the season!

Jason Erlandson

Thanks Top Five, One fish away and it would of been a really nice finish. Where are you guys sitting? Any tips for fishing the river? We've never been there.

Buck 12,

We have been consistant all year, which has put us in TOPFIVE for the team of the year. Two years ago we finished 2nd in Red Wing with a full limit. We are excited to go back hoping our spots will pan out. Water level is key to your spots. Note the day before the last tourney they shut off the water in the dam which dropped the water level and turned off half of the excellent spots that we had. That is a big body of water and we will be prefishing often. Please send your email address and I will reply with more information.

Talk soon!!!

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
