TRF Lions Club tournament?

Recommended Posts


Whats up ya'll? MISS ME? Havent seen anything on the TRF Lions club tournament...was thinking about fishing it again? Dates would need to work and all but was thinking how fun it would be to do it again and for the third time????? Probably not but its great to dream.

I am seriously looking at fishing the Cats Incredible tournament this year, so was just wondering when the local tourney was? Any info would be just great.

Ohio is o.k., but the fishing is sweeter in Minnesota!!!

Hey CML! Good to hear from you again!

I think the Lion's Tourney is once again scheduled for August, but I don't recall the exact date. You needn't return for the event anyhow. There's someone else already sitting at all your best holes!!! laugh

I'm a little worried about what the river will look like below the dam once this event rolls around. Last year's drought really tapped out our local watershed, and even though lots of snow, and lots of spring rain brought the river back up again for a while, she's way back down now, barely even moving anymore, and the thick goopy scum weeds are growing in fast.

You sold your cat boat dude. Have you upgraded since?

It looks like the TRF tournament is a few weeks after Cats Incredible, so it's not gonna work...the wife said we can only afford me to take one week off and I decided on the Cats Incredible tournament.

As for the boat situation, believe it or not I don't even own a boat right now!!! Scary right! Money is a tad tight because we just built a garage and then we had two cars in a row sustain severe engine damage... frown so we went and bought a brand new car (wich wasn't exactly cheap. Now I have to wait 5 long years, then I can buy a reaaally nice boat (as long as nothing else pops up) and get back to some serious fishing.

I guess the lord is probably trying to teach me something with the cars and all...just not sure what it is yet? Whatever it is, I have faith I'll still be here tomorrow and still have a great outlook on life!

For the tournament, my brother has a boat and he's gonna fish it with me.

If you are around I might stop by when i'm to you later.

Sorry to hear about the car situation. Been there myself. Seems like when it rains, it really pours, especially with machines.

I should be around in August, and you're more than welcome to come on out for a visit. It would be good to catch up.

Pleased to hear you're so happy and blessed, despite the automobile situation. Love that attitude, and your expression of faith!!!

Look forward to seeing you again. Just gimme a call when you're in town.

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir

      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
