Nice Classic this year. Some of the most decent weather

(cant call it nice)I can remember for the Fall event.

Big fish caught in the lake again this year. A nice

mix of locals and out of towners in the top 11.

limit, so there could have been more.

Thats the end of the money

Mixed couple awards Gary and Lisa Asper, St Francis

Spring Summer Fall Top finishing team Sindelir and Johanssen

Top Finishing Lund Team Gary Swanson and Dave Setzler.

Kevin and Colleen and their crew work very hard and do a

great job. Up and down the roster the people who enter

these events love the fishing, the competition and will

admit they learn something new every year.

I will post next years schedule when it becomes available.

Some nice changes are in store.

OK now the rest of the story. On our way out to the

far off hotspots Friday morning. Since we are boat #1 we

are in the lead. The first good sized wave takes out

all of our electrical. No Depth finder, no gps, no pumps

zip!!!!!

The last couple of days of practice the steering

had been sticking more and more, I had LOW Marine check the

steering lines for air and hoped problem would be solved

but it kept getting worse. We kept going out towards the

hot spot but slowed down because others were going

to the same spot and would have to find if for us. Got to

the general area but could not get to the transistion line

because we were blind.

After a couple of hours in the wrong spot limped back

to the Morris Point Gap and found real nice fish but no

biggees. Saturday, back to MP since the steering was

really bad now, we had jump wired the Sonar/gps but still

didnt like heading out a long distance with stuff falling apart.

Now the good news. I dropped the boat at D & E Sunday and

Monday morning they called and said the boat was fixed!

The steering disaster was loose bolts inside the helm and

the electrical failure might still be a mystery because

they tightened a few wires and put in a fuse and it seems

to be working fine.

Even with trouble, plenty of fun. Met some great new people like

Corey and Mike, Matt and Mike and Shawn. Cant

wait till the spring event

Yoe T you did'nt fish it eh? That explains why I did'nt see your hotrod Ranger running around last week! Sure was quiet out there Wednesday and Thursday. Monday was really busy but then the weather was so fine that day. I did see old Curt and Mike out on Thursday though. Nice new rig you got there MrQ, you even had a chauffer behind the wheel!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.
