good job guys and a good job by all the people who put on this tourney. i thought it was a well run tourney better than most. we ended up with only 4 fish for 9 pounds held out a little to long for those perfect fish. ill defenitly fish it again next year.

We made the same choice Travis. Had two over 18 in the box in the first hour. It was hard to justify keeping the next four we caught just over 15, so back they went. Ended up weighing four at around 8.5lbs total, kinda wonder if those other four would have got us in the low end of the money? Oh well, I'll do the same thing next year if we get a couple nice ones like that right off the bat. Thanks to all who helped out, congrats to the winners, and see ya there next year.

We made some choices early that cost us some cash too.

We had a 18.5, 19.3, and a pair of 22's in the first 1/2 hour... We didn't give much thought to tossing 15-16's back. Later on the bite died on us. My partner managed a 26.5 that had us both pretty excited for a while... nice big fat one too... We ended up weighing 5 fish for 10.? pounds...

Always next year...

Won a nice rod/reel combo as a door prize. Thanks Conway!

Seems we were all stupid that morning. My partner and I did the same thing. Oh well, I was just happy to weigh some fish this year. Last year was quite humbling to say the least. Another great tournament, I'll be back next year. Thanks to the crew at Streiff.

Nice to meet you Walleye Jon, breif as it was. Thanks to you and Fisky for rescuing my phone. I appreciate it.

Widetrack, I saw you around a few times but didn't get a chance to come over and say hi. Maybe next time. Did you get the e-mail I sent you a while back?

We were live bait fishing with crawlers and leeches. We started at 5 mile and then to Arneson's until 12:30 and back to 5 mile for the last 6 slots. We only had 1-2lb fish at 12:20 and then the right one bit. When we got back to 5 mile the bite was on in a very small spot and we picked up the rest of our limit before 2:45pm.

tuffboy,

That was me in the Lund next to you on 5 that gave you the thumbs up when you were pulling out. Good job. Your marker was right on our way point from pre-fishing, I guess great minds think alike.

Travis, I got to fish with your buddy Heiser on Sat. Very nice ride in that Tracker Tundra. Pretty slow day up until 3:00 but the last 2 hours made up for it. Dad and I were tied up right behind you at the dock in that Alumacrap boat at the tourney.

Ripper, were you our pulling plugs out of Arnesens on Saturday? We saw a Tundra cruising around the rocks. We were the white Yarcraft kind of sitting by ourselves on Arnesens. On Friday some friends did pretty well longlining cranks south of 16 mile.

We were pulling plugs out there. I remember you guys. You were backtrolling, correct? How did you do? I can't wait to get back up there. Lip Ripper kept me out of all his good spots though. J/K

Ya, we were working a small piece of the deep stuff-29'-that had eyes, sauger and big perch. Donno why they were in that spot but there were lots of them. How long have you had the Tundra? I'm going to a wheel next year and Tundras are on my short list.

My Tundra is a 2005. I will be selling it this fall. I've quit telling people how awesome the ride is and make them go for a ride. Ask Lip Ripper, he'll tell ya. We caught one nice perch on Sat as well.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Thanks Cliff, weather looks dynamite so that's a good start!

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect
