FL Sniper,

The Wilke was pretty fun, if you didn't mind the 35 knot winds that kicked up just after the start of the event.... Late in the contest, no walleye's and no crappies had been weighed. Plenty of 2 to 3 lb pike and a bnch of small sunnies were weighed. Not sure who came out on top, or which weight won each category...

By the time I got to Mike's Bait they had nothing but smaller shhiners. A couple of guys who got their earlier actuall had big shiners....you know the kind that we use to have shipped in from Ark... Shiners seemed to be the bait of the day though...

They pad out cash for 3 places in each of four categories (sunny, crappie, eyes and pike). Never made it up to the weigh in site to check the exact dollar amounts though.... Lots of raffle prizes. Each of my kids won about a $50 prize...

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!

      Not bad! Was the ice soft all they way through?
