I sent you an email. Sounds interested. I don't know that I'll be able to make every week, but it would be fun. Plus, I'm not much good at Bass yet so maybe this will help.

It's a good time. You definitely don't have to go to every event. I made it to about 4 or 5 last year and I'm looking forward to doing it again this year.

I'm usually alone so if anyone wants to take me in their fancy new boat a time or two and show me all their secret spots or I could maybe take someone along in my old hunk of floating aluminum and try to be lucky... \:\)

So you just measure the bass and then release them where they were caught? If so, that is GREAT. Puts less stress on the fish than to have a weigh in and release all the fish in the same spot. I wish they would do the same thing on Rush Lake instead of having a weigh in every week. Great idea.

You hit the nail on the head. Catch, measure, release.

Rob and I will be there for sure this year. We should be able to hit most all of them, Tuesdays were our normal fishing night each week last summer. And of course, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and the occasional Monday too. I can't wait to fish against the DD.

Does the champ get dollars signed by all the members like some of the get togethers do?

Matty, maybe we need to hook up and partner this year. Like I said before though, I am still waiting to see what the kids ball schedule is and so forth. I am thinking Golf can wait for when there isn't time to fish! If your interested, stay in touch and maybe we can tag team and take on the double D and his partner.

He kind of looks like someone just punched him in the stomach and shoved a catfish in his hands. He'll never get that scent off him, and bass stay away from cats. Could be a tough year for old Dittrich.

Sounds like a perfect league on some great local lakes. Unfortunately I'm in the same spot that Tun is in. Coaching kids ball w/games every Tuesday. Done by the 4th of July though. Maybe I can hit the latter events.

Have fun out there...

Fun will be had, no one has to worry about that.

As for the guys that are alone, you don't need a partner to fish these events. There were several guys who fished solo last year. If you can find a partner, all the better, but don't sweat it if you can't.

Dan is right, I joined solo last year. I ended up fishing with Ole Matty about every other week. On the off weeks, I fished with some others. It was fun as I learned a lot from many and hopefully helped a few. I will be out again this season with an empty seat if anyone wants to join me. Just let me know.

      Thanks for the update , Don.  Some of the smaller bodies of water in our area capped over last night. I'm hoping there will be walkable ice somewhere by the weekend

      The deadline for firearms wild turkey hunters to apply for early season spring hunting permits is Friday, Jan. 27, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. The spring season, which runs from Wednesday, April 12, to Wednesday, May 31, is divided into six time periods. Only people age 18 and older who want to hunt using a firearm during the first two time periods (A or B) need to apply for a spring turkey permit. Permits for the remaining time periods (C-F) can be purchased over-the-counter. Archery and youth turkey hunters can hunt the entire season without applying for the lottery. Permits for the last three time periods and youth licenses are sold starting March 1. Surplus adult licenses from the first two time periods, if available, are sold starting around mid-March. People applying for permit area 511, the Carlos Avery State Wildlife Management Area, are advised that the sanctuary portion of the WMA will be closed to turkey hunting except for the special hunt for hunters with disabilities. For turkey hunting, a person may only use shotguns 20 gauge or larger, including muzzleloading shotguns. Only fine shot size No. 4 and smaller diameter may be used, and red dot scopes and range finders are legal. Visit the turkey hunting page  for more information about turkey hunting.

      We did some roadside scouting in the Chippewa national forest on Sunday. Put on a pile of miles driving the forest roads with the fresh dusting of snow and never cut a track. Kinda disappointing, but my daughter wasn't really up for it.    Season is still young.

      well we found a small amount of ice. But it was only about 1"thick. And only reached out a couple hundred yards at best. The swans were loving all the open water that's for sure.    Those that did come up to the GTG had a good time despite the lack of ice. Mostly hunting for grouse and rabbits. Plenty of both seen, but the shooting was less than stellar.
