I heard that they had a tournament and caught only two fish for the hole tournament, wondering if thats correct.

It was six days of tough fishing for about 70 anglers who competed in the 46th annual Muskie-Northern Derby Days on Leech Lake July 28-Aug. 2.

Only seven muskies were caught this year, down considerable from 2006. Last year, 19 muskies were registered and released as anglers took advantage of ideal fishing conditions.

Vince Noeller of Laporte, who has been fishing the tournament for several years, finally claimed his first title. Noeller, who took fourth in 2006, caught two muskies. They measured 49 and 47 inches, and were caught Aug. 1 in .

      So how do you guys go about finding fish when you go out...Do you drive around until you mark fish or big schools of smelt then troll that area?? I know I've read about using a site that shows Superiors water temps also....I'm thinking of trying it this weekend if I get the boat ready in time and the weather is ok.

      I also heard that there has been a lot of ice damage on the South shore of Birch Point. Saw a few pictures that Sherry, (Manic Docks) took last week. Cliff

      Think I might try my kayak on a lake this weekend for some of those.
