North Star Summer Classic Final

2 posts in this topic

Two decent days of weather and the 10 teams in the

Summer Classic fished just about the entire lake.

Rick Thompson and Tracy Wahl of Warroad were the winners

with 2 identical days of fishing. Day one total 4 fish

for 8.95 followed on day two by 4 more fish and 8.73 pounds.

I talked to Rick before the awards ceremony and he said

they trolled and casted crankbaits into very shallow water.

Water as shallow as 2 feet produced most of their fish. (I

am scratching my head too) North Country Outdoors Radio

listeners have heard Justin Kjos talking shallow water

fishing for years. I dont know how but I am interested.

$2950 bucks for first.

2nd place Don Hecht and Ronald Galstad. A day one big

fish of 7.5 pounds and a total weight of 11.98 pounds on

Friday put this team in the lead. Saturday they came up a bit short with only 5.18 pounds dropped a spot.

Third was Travis Carlson of Larimore ND and Todd Prickett of Thief River Falls (Travis C and Lip Ripper on FM) 7.84

on Friday and 7.96 Saturday.

4th Mike Lindholm of TRF and Curt Quesnell of Newfolden.

(Americas team) 6.48 Friday 7.91 Saturday

5th Jerry Anderson-Baudette and Mike Anderson of Roseau

6th Chris Atwater-Nisswa and Scott Whipp-Ham Lake.

7th Mark Sindelir-Baudette and Lorne Jonassen-Rainy River.

8th Tom Schuster and Don Schuster of Baudette

9th Michael Axen and Tom Peloquin (Spring Classic winners)

of Blaine

10th Brett Whitlock-Roseau and Rob Dorry-Warroad

$200 Big Fish Pot winner day one Don Hecht and Ronald


$200 Big Fish Pot winner the second day was Curt Quesnell

and Mike Lindholm

$500 doller for Todd Prickett and Travis Carson for being

the highest place team in a Lund Boat.

Nice event, great fishing and with a few more teams BIG

money. The Fall Classic is the first weekend in October.

This is the 10th Fall Classic with a cap at 75 teams and

10 thousand dollars prize (with full field).

If you didnt fish this event over the weekend (and most of

you didnt) you missed alot of fun. See you next time.

I agree we need more teams. very well run events and alot of fun. id have to say it was the best 5 days of fishing ive had in a long time. can never get tired of reeling in 10-15 fish between 22-26 inches every day. caught a couple over the slot before the tourney but just couldn't get one in the tourney go figure.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!
