IN case you haven't heard Brent Haimes from mazeppa will be fishing in teh super bowl of fishing The bassmasters Classic. here is part of the article from the bassmasters site

KISSIMMEE, Fla. — Jeff Freeman, a deputy sheriff from Max Meadows, Va., locked up the BASS Federation Nation Championship Saturday with a three-day total of 27 pounds, 11 ounces, outlasting a field of 55 amateurs and earning a coveted berth in the 2008 Bassmaster Classic, Feb. 22-24 on Lake Hartwell out of Greenville, S.C.

"It's nice to see a cop finally win," Freeman, 35, said. "I'm so fired up right now, it's hard to put into words. I love the competition and to be able to go to the Classic is the pinnacle of the sport."

Freeman not only punched his ticket to the Classic through the Mid-Atlantic Division, he won a Triton boat package valued at $50,000 and an invitation to the Bassmaster Elite Series. He wasn't the only law enforcement officer to secure a Classic berth: Mike Baskett, a police officer from Salem, Ore., bested the Western Division with 20 pounds, 12 ounces, earning one of six Classic berths awarded.

The other four division winners and Classic qualifiers were Jamie Laiche of Gonzales, La., with 24 pounds, 10 ounces (Central); Chris Loftus of Bloomfield, N.Y., with 23 pounds, 8 ounces (Eastern); South Africa's Richard Watson with 17 pounds, 3 ounces (Southern); and Brent Haimes of Mazeppa, Minn., with 19 pounds, 1 ounce (Northern).

Go Brent!!!!!!!

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!

      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!
