Lotsa, lotsa young bass! First place was 15# 5 oz, but they were DQ'd. 13+ won (Gary Lake and son), 12+ was 2nd (Harvey Youngs & partner). It dropped from there. We just couldn't get a nice bite. We fished 2 deep spots (9-11 FOW) that didn't pan out so we stayed shallow most of the day. We had our limit in 15 minutes, but upgraded ounces at a time. I guess it was enough to make team of the year (due to the above mentioned DQ by the team that came into the day 10 points behind us).

The Ultimate Bass also had a contest yesterday and TOC today. We had a sub fish the Ultimate for us on Jefferson yesterday.

TOC for the So. MN Bass Tour was today on O'Dowds, but I elected to fish the TOC in the Ultimate Bass. Tough on Lura, too. Only managed a 2.65#er down there. Out of the top 15 only 2 limits of 5 bass were caught (7-noon) and 12.95# won with a 11+ bag getting 2nd. After that it dropped off to about 7 1/2 for 3rd. No 4 fish bags. Late July there were 8 teams weighing in over 20# sacks. I guess this cold spell really but a damper on things. I am sure they will improve by next weekend. One more contest on Lura (open tourney) Oct 6.

My partner fished O'Dowds and it sounded pretty tough there, too.

Congrats to Dick and Ed on Team of the Year in the Ultimate (winning 3 out of the 4 contests - they let us win the other grin.gif).

I was on Tetonka today and I see what you mean about small Bass. We cought a bunch, but all small.

Just a note:

The marker bouy for the shallow water on the Bar in the main lake, east side (The one all by itself) is 100yds east of where it should be. That NW wind last week must have moved it.

Hey Kato. As tough as Lura was yesterday, you guys had one heck of a season. Congrats and maybe we'll see you next year.

Congrats on 2nd yesterday. How'd you catch em? I suppose it helps keeping the old man out of the water?

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
