I will be there. I just talked to them it sounds like they have 51 paid entries and a few verbal commitments something like 5 or 6 so it isn't a filled out yet. Total of 85 boats allowed to enter. Should be another fun one.

My guess is that people are waiting it out due to the water levels before committing.

Last year was the same thing it seemed. Less people than the years prior when the water was up to more normal levels.

Brown Bass Tourney guys and gals,

If it don't rain a bit up north look out for unbelievable shallow water. The ole Miss is running dry. Hard to get past Clam Shell Island just south of Two Rivers. Propsters be careful out there.

Not sure what the drop shot comment is all about, you know me throwing buzz baits in 6" is where it's at. River is extremely high and the current is strong so be prepared. You two should focus on finishig the contest not winning it.

It doesn't really matter 4 of our keeper fish came on artificial....I just don't understand what the hell is the big deal about using live bait in a tournament that says you can...Does it make us a bad fisherman???? We just followed the rules...If you don't like that tournament don't fish it...

If it says you can then do it.... most just disagree with a BASS tourney that allows live bait... not very sporting imho.... to each his own I guess but even if they said I could I wouldn't I feel I'm more effective with artificials any way

         Personally I do seem to catch quite a few overs, some days it can be a challenge to find keeper fish ( stupid problem to have, huh?). One thing I notice is that all the fish seem to be very thick through out the classes.   While I was tackling some honey-do's I noticed that the breeze was a bit stiff, I'm sure it was a challenge to maintain a line or consistent  speed.   Over all was it a good day for you?

      Nope that's exactly what I wanted to hear thank you probably will go to look at gander in forest lake to see if they have anything good left
    • ZachD
      There are good bass in Crooked too
    • DLD24
      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      lol I posted that Friday but with no service it must went when I ran into town for new hose

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod. 
    • TNtoMN_HuntFish
      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.
