7th Place aint bad

4 posts in this topic

My fishing partner actually caught the fish, but he is only 19 and the guide can't catch them all. Not bad though for a couple new guys to Island Lake. Thanks for the tips Loonasea. Steve, we talked about sublte and slow, I went bigger and deeper as I said on thephone. It paid off. 5.5 lbs 25". Now I wonder if I won any door prizes.

Wade, Congrats to you and your fishing partner.

You didn't win any door prizes, Northlander got most of them. grin.gif

Actually we ended up 6th. When we went to FC today to pick up the check, I noticed that 6th place fish was 5lbs 4 oz, My partners was 5lbs 5oz. I asked Scott, "whats up here?" he looked at it, called some woman, and POOF, He is now 6th, and 50 bucks richer.

Scott tells me there were a few trinkets left that Steve didn't get.

I won a fish towel and my wife won a fillet system and towel. She was real impressed. tongue.gif

All the other prizes went to co-workers who purchased tickets from me but werent at the weigh in.

Congrats Wade and partner. Right place at the right time I guess. We were in the wrong place all the time I guess. confused.gif

      Sounds pretty slow, I was up and out of Zipple Bay on Monday and Tuesday in about 26 ft. of water and did OK. Good mix of nice sauger and walleye. I think they closed the road to trucks and just letting atvs out now. Good luck on the river.

      We got ours from springsteel, they had some at the bait store in warroad. Couldn't find ciscos, warroad had smelt though.

      Arrived at Morris pt. Fri. afternoon fished a spot I did well on earlier in the year in 18 ft. Ended up catching 10 walleye of which 8 were under 12 inches. The 2 keepers were 16 inches each. That was between 4 pm and 7 pm Used the snowmobile there was enough slush to keep the slides cool. Sat. morning went deeper because of a report I heard. Caught 1 small walleye moved several times between 29 ft and 20 ft. At 1 pm went back to my spot in 18 ft banged 3 more walleyes 2 15 inchers and a 12 incher. then nothing .Off the lake by 2pm had work to do. Wished I would of started there but that's fishing.Talked to 3 guy's in the cleaning house that road there wheelers to Bridges they had there limits plus 3 huge perch and a few tullies. On a side note coming home today saw numerous boats both coming and going. Time to jump on board and hit the river..
