If you are thinking about this, you may want to act soon. The Ultimate is not taking place this year due to the additional DNR requirements and costs! I also heard through the grapevine that Gabby wasn't going to hold his Thursday niters.

steiger, call Brent. He is requiring a $200 deposit to hold a spot. First come, first serve. (Returning teams DO NOT get preference!) My check left on Tuesday. I think there will be a lot of interest because the other local tour is gone.

I know Z-Nail already sent his money, too. Brent told me he is getting a lot of interest already. I sent the tourney dates to Classic Bass for Brent, too.

Kato is correct, the check was sent Tuesday. It sounds like a blast. Anyone else getting the itch to be standing in the boat?

MINNESOTA MONGO ,don't give just yet there still is a evening tournament going , but I don't have any details at this moment ,sorry all I know is the name of the event is D's Bustin Bass .

He had it last year but the turn out was poor due to the fact it was on the same night as Gabby's thursday nighters

Sweet! Thanks Lucky! That's the sort of league I was hoping to fish in with my 14 yr old son.

I'll keep my eyes and ears open.

So what are they going to have for poor people like me that can't swing that $ to fish. I NEED to compete. I'm an adrenaline junky for fishing tournaments.

I also heard that Joe Hogan and Gabby are doing a Bass'n for Animals contest on Washington June 8. Proceeds go to the Blue Earth-Nicollet County Humane Society.

luckycrank is the odds on favorite based on history, but don't go counting that $4K quite yet... \:\)

katoguy, I'll leave that up to you, I likley won't be fishing bassin for animals.but who knows any things possible.

I am evan undecided for SMBT.. I Was already assured sponsorship for half the Entry but I might be persuaded if the other half gets paid. still undecided to both if not the walley fishing was spectacular last spring and fall and I not opposed to do that again Either (but leaning towards fishing tournaments)

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.

      The walleye bite the past couple days has gone from Boom to  almost Bust! There have been a couple of huge May fly hatches the last couple of nights along with a large Rusty Crayfish molt that have been making catching walleyes a real challenge! We are still getting some fish but now have to earn every fish! Lindys with 1/2 crawler fished VERY slow in 18" to 30" depths has been my best presentation. Cliff

      Thanks guys!  We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high.  We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river.  Is that a good stretch for smallies?
    • ANYFISH2
      wow, that is one dark walleye!

      And no reports make forums no good. Participation is what makes this place great.   Do not discourage that!
