Alright guys I know all competing in the Bass tournament are fired up and time is money, but... I fished in several tournaments also. Yesterday we fished the east end with great success other than nearly being ran over in my friends boat on 2 seperate occassions. Both times we were heading through the Brule in the neck down areas which offer very limited wiggle room. These boats never broke speed coming directly at us at an estimated 60 mph. Thats ridiculous! Obviously sporting your flashy shirts with your hats on backwards probably had too tight of a squeeze on your little brains. PLEASE NOTE! No Fish is worth risking my life for! I could care less if your willing to trade your own for a smallie! Also make no mistake about the fact that boat collisions do happen and yes they are ugly! On the otherhand I did run into another tournament fisherman whom harnessed some common sense and courtesy on the lake. So trying not to generalize, but come on! If your familiar with the last red/Green exiting the brule into the East end this is where we were nearly erased (TWICE). We hugged the inside heading east not having any idea where the rocket was heading as he screamed right at us. As we completely let of the throttle he flew past us as if we were in the wrong! Note to this gentleman I surely hope you realize your not that much of a "big shot", and just because I wasn't in my "big boat" doesn't give you the right to run me over with your overpriced sparkly rocket powered smallmouth chaser. Hope the Lake police can catch up with you! Most of all hope you don't kill anyone with your senseless behavior. Also note to tournament directors please advise participants that this is not accepted practice. Killing someone will surely hinder the growth of this tournament! Try stay alive out there!

      Just wondering if there was any new info/topic on upper red?

      There is about a million skid houses for sale around the lake that you may get pretty good deals on if you don't want to go through all the work.

      10/23/16     Central MN      Cold front last week and again this morning brought new ducks into central MN. Mainly observed migrating flocks of ringnecks, wigeon, gadwalls, canvasbacks, and mallards--calendar migrators from ND and southern Canada most likely. Had a few good days of duck hunting from a boat on a couple mid-sized shallow lakes. It is that time of the year for calendar migrators. Any time you can get out over the next couple weeks during or the day after a strong west or NW wind, or the day after a cold, clear night with a light westerly wind go for it. Soon these ducks will blow through and we will be waiting for the hardy Canadian ducks that stay just south of the snow and ice line. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Brian, That certainly can not be a good thing for Vermilion! I have not seen it that bad on Big Bay yet. Cliff

      I was back up to morris yesterday oct 22 fished afternoon for about 3 hrs. in 17 to 19 feet caught about 25 walleye and sauger mix average size about 10 in. only 2 keepers. Lots of boats everyone was catching fish. I'm guessing I missed as many as I caught. Stinger saved the day!
