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?

      I have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
