I was likewise impressed with the family atmosphere the Fish A Rama had. I was not a participant but happened to be fishing on the lake when the contest was on. My wife and I were suddenly surrounded with boat loads of people which is very uncommon. All boats were extremely curtious even in the windy conditions. We witnessed a guy hook a fish that turned out to be a 27" walleye. He had a small jon boat with a small motor. It was pleasing to see him catch a quality fish with out all the fancy stuff. Best of all he had two young boys with him (most likey sons) they cheered him on while landing the fish. I will never forget the look on their faces the first time they saw the fish. I don't know if they won but witnessing them catching the fish was worth a limit of eaters!!! KUDOS TO THE SPONSORS!!!!!

The guy with his 2 boys did take the biggest walleye for the contest, they took a new electric trolling motor home. Alot of big fish caught that day.

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

          Barry is retired. I bought his boat and fished her unitl I got the 38'er. Team Crush is still using the old Whitewater.   Barry does work on my boat occasionally as the first mate.
