How did every one do in the Lions tourney on Sunday?

Recommended Posts

uphill

Just thought I would see how everyone at FM that was at Sunday's tourney did. We fell in to a good pattern adn had 5 fish by 8:30 but needed some bigger ones and caught a few but only enough to weigh in at 9.98 with one that died on us which is amazing considering all of the other fish in the live well were alive and kickin' but not in the money. If we could have had a mixed bass bag I caught 4 large mouth that were around 4.5 #'s. So nothing to brag about just like to see how others did. Phil

Good time- bag weighed 12.4# with the biggest being 3.8#. I think we were around 12th or 13th place. Maybe alittle higher next year- Still a good time.

12.02 lbs here for a 15th spot finish.

All 5 fish we had were 16-17 inches. We never had a bigger fish on all day. A coupla 18+ fish woulda been a nice add, but it wasnt to be.

Everything did seem to go smooth better than past tourneys. The only thing is they really should have someone selling coffee and donuts in the morning. Not that I need donuts but I was out of coffee before I got there.

How long does this tourney go for? I might have to enter with my son next year.

We go out on the river quite a bit and we catch 20 pounds of smallies in an hour or two. You guys don't know the secret. tongue.gif

85 boat field possible. This year there were 65. Come one, come all. Its a VERY fun tourney. Lots of water for big boats and the shallow runnin' type.

We'd love to take your money... Er I mean we'd love to have you join us. cool.gif

That'd be fun. Is there a youth division? I would probably bring either my 6 year old or a buddy of mine that fishes like a youth. :-)

      works fine for me but I noticed you have to be logged in to see ice fishing section now. If your not logged in you can still see every other forum Maybe @Rick can get it fixed?

      Like Kidmoe said. about the humidity. This time of year when the furnace is running a lot houses get really dry, and just like us their skin gets dried out. Also make sure their bed or they are not sleeping in front of or by a heat register.  The warmth feels good but it's not helping.

      I can get to everything except ICE. You guys too?
    • Rick
      @YBOutdoors have you tried ice fishing it yet?
    • Hoey
      I really do not do anything different.  I use red UV glow rattle jigging spoons with a minnow head under the Vex.  I use a large fathead on a lightweight, large hook jig under the bobber.

      At this time of the year they are full of eggs and forage.  Not surprised.

      Anyone ice fishing the pike river flowage this year? Main lake or narrows upstream of Hwys 1 or 77? I may go this weekend. Thx
    • Wellesy
      It was pretty "healthy" fish I would say...quite a gut on it.  I'll try and post a pic later.

      So I purchased a 23 inch SUL tickle stick this years model with the white handle ( actually I wanted a 27 inch UL and got home and the rod was a SUL but the box said 27 I’m 200 miles from the store I got it from so can’t juse return it). I got it At the beginning of this season and the very first trip out with it the paint started peeling off the tip. I contacted 13 and they said I had to pay to get a new one because it was my fault and that never happens. That rod has never been abused. I’ve still been using the rod and now about half the paint has come off. I’ve tried sharpie, highlighter. Nothing works the blank of the rod is black so hard for things to show. Has anyone had this issue?

      I use a fish oil that comes in a pump bottle from Menards or FF. This stuff makes a huge difference for my dog. It calls for one tablespoon or 1 pump per 10 lbs so my pup gets 7 or 8 pumps on his kibble.  i also try to run the poor mans humidifier (boiling pot on the stove) on the really cold days. It has been extra cold and dry so far this year though.
