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

      model name / number: Mako Upgraded to an electric auger and selling my old one. Runs great and has been well taken care of. Starts on 2-3 pulls every time. I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
