I took advantage of your vidio On core presentation. Love it Im able to see what I would have missed. All good information even for a old guy like me.

What I noticed 1st and I think is so cool is the fact a women is included in the UPL. Which gave thought to the future that perhaps there will eventually be a women VS Men tourny for some internal friendly competition.

I havent been out much this winter. Used to be Id ice fishn from 1st ice to pushing the boat thru rotten ice at ice out. I was hoping there would have been more information on the local lakes. Peltier. ? is as dead Ive encounterd.?

Medicine lake is where I lived as a baby..... Dad would tie the cane poles to the 59 Chevy and we'd head to rent a boat. Caught alot of weeds in those days. Which brings up the interesting issue of fishing the weeds, inside out side....15 feet out to 17 feet, during the winter. Here I am a basin fisherman. Im mostly a crappie guy but will chase the gills if the lake has size. 8 inches seems reasonable. All Id seen on the Medicine lake post were smaller crappies and not alot of mention of gills. You all proved differently with the fish size.

If I have apoint to make, its you guys and gals are pretty good at what you do.Must be alot of fun. Its interesting to note the areas of sectretive notation that you divulge that mabey makes one team outfish the other under especially tough conditions. I agree the accuracy using a gram scale to be sure the weight difference vs length difference is a winners edge being its all about weight.

When I hit a lake again, Ill be bit of a better fisherman for watching your vidio.

Good Job. Gals Vs Guys tourney in the future. ?

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.

      I just dont believe that to be a Esox bite at all. Too much space between the Major wounds, IMHO!
