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.

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
