I just got off with Warrior Boats. They have chosen us to be part of their 'Warrior High Achiever's' program. This means they will offer contingency cash to anyone finishing in the top 3 that is fishing out of a Warrior boat.

I just got off with Fortune Bay. They only have a handful of rooms still available. I need to know if there are any of you out there who are planning on making reservations, but haven't. They offered to block a few more rooms for the Tournament.

I keep getting calls to inquire if we still have availability for the Tournament. To answer that question, we do. The applications are coming in pretty good, but we do still have some openings.

They told me it will be posted within 7-10 days. If Anyone else would like me to apply for Contingency cash, please let me know. So far Lund, Warrior, and now Crestliner have potential dollars hanging out there.

I seem to be getting a bunch of calls regarding ice conditions at Lake Vermilion. Today there is still ice on the lake, but the shorelines are starting to pull away. I don't see a problem for the Tournament. I can't say the same for Opening weekend. It will be pretty close for Opener.

I am getting several calls and figued I should post an update. The ice conditions on Vermilion won't be an issue for our event. Also, we do still have openings available.

We are in the 50's. We have a few boats that want to enter at the registration Friday night, so I won't have a final count until that evening. We should be over 60 boats.

Well, we had another successful event. The weather didn't cooperate, but a good time was had by all 66 anglers. We paid over $30,000 in cash and prizes to the anglers, and we also raised close to $10,000 for area children.

Thanks to all our sponsors, and all our anglers. Without you this event would not be possible!

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      I will be out on Blue on Saturday morning. ... see you out there

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.
