6 posts in this topic

Saturday morning from 8 am to noon the new LOW Walleye

League wraps up it's first season with a League Championship

event. Weigh in at the point in Warroad at noon. It would

be a great time to check out the league and start making

plans to join next season. Come by and watch the grand

finale and ask questions.

It was sure a fun way to pass the summer, and gave me an excuse to go fishing (like I needed one) that Walleye Char actually believed.

Oh by the way, I'll be available for autographs and pictures after weigh-in. I just hope you all don't mind me asking you for both.

It has been a blast being league director of the first season for the Lake of the Woods Walleye League. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that has taken part in the inaugural season. We fought bad weather and high winds in the first part of the season but the second half and the Championship Event was very nice.

The Championship was held on Saturday in beautiful weather. The fishing, however, was a bit challenging…. Again!! When the boaters returned after 4 hours to the dock for the weigh-in they were all just shaking their heads. The spots that earlier had held fish during prefishing were coming up blank, they were in shock. Three teams did not bring in any fish to the scales and one team that did have a nice start on a big basket had boat trouble and had to be towed in, missing the weigh-in.

The winners of the Championship were Adam Harder and Nate Olafson who earned a check for $204.90. Coming in second were Walleye Jon Berns and Mike Hugg who claimed a check of $170.50. In third place were Rick Thompson and Tracy Wahl who earned a check of $136.60.

Also awarded on Saturday were the awards for the top three regular season teams. Coming in first in the regular season were Walleye Jon Berns and Hike Hugg who earned $121.50 for their top finish. In second place were Old Guide Pat Fischer and Ken Parnham who claimed a check for $85.05. In third place were Nate Olafson and Adam Harder earned $36.45.

In total $926 in cash was awarded on Saturday as well as a $50 gift card donated by Streiff Sporting Goods, a $50 Streiff gift card donated by Gary Olson, a drift sock donated by Riverside Bait & Tackle, 2 fillet knives and 2 floating pliers donated by the Marvin Home Center.

It has been a lot of fun this summer, thanks again to everyone that participated.

Cary O.

      Saturday found the panfish deep in the morning, not a fish on the shoreline to be found. By late afternoon the shorlines were packed with panfish.  Crappies just now are actually on beds.   Bluegills are have not yet started to fan nests.  The big seriously fat females are thick shallow, only a few bulls hanging around at this point.   This is for the area near Walker/Hackensack.

      Leeches under a slip bobber drifted over a small shelf off a bigger flat.  Bobber set at 8.5 feet.

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:
