therancher..Last year i think they had 31 teams enter,they try for fifty.I wanna say the winning weight was around 12 to 15 pounds.The weather was a little on the rough side but plenty of fish were still brought to the scale.I would encourage all who are interested to fish it.Their web site has all the info you need.Its a fun lake to fish, loaded with structure....Hope to see you there.....

I hope that we get a good turn out this year! I will be fishing with my wife this year. It will be out first husband wife fishing event. I hope for her sake (and mine) that the weather is nice. I encourage all of you that are thinking about entering to do so. It is an awesome event that is for a great cause.

t-dog,Who's watching the kids? I had a great time last year with my son except for the rain. We even weighed some fish. I will probably take my other son this year. It's a good tourny for father and son/daghter.

Jerk Bait,

Went out on Gull last night in the Triton. 4 over 22" biggest 25". Not bad for a couple of muskie guys. I suppose I'll have to check out Pelican. The weather sounds bad this weekend. How is the landing at Jones Bay?

Any idea how many boats are signed up so far? I think it will be an awesome event this year. The water levels seem to be manageable. I haven't been over to breezy yet, any one tried to get in or out of there? Can't wait for Sunday. I hope its dry!!!

T-Dog,

I think you are the only one signed up. Oh, I guess Shelley wants to fish so maybe it will be the "Couple Cup", us against you.

Have a good day T.T. (teacher Tob),

You wouldn't believe the amount of grief a guy can get for one little mention in an article. Non Stop! They really came out of the wood work on that one.

      It was on the opener last year.

      Frazer Bay is as far as I venture West but that bay can be very good at times. I prefer Lindy Rigs with a 5' leader,#2 or a #4 hook, red or green bead by the hook, and a 3/4 oz. sinker. That time of the summer minnows and leeches work best but do not be afraid to try 1/2 crawler on this rig! Like PSU said, look with your electronics for the fish, then fish for them! 12" to 32" depths. Cliff

      Fished the big lake this morning ,,, Weather didnt start out nice but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, Got my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, There is a lot of mud covering this side of the lake but finding clear to tea colored water paid off ,,,Natural colored sticks took a majority of hit today and the cohos have grown 5 inches in the last month ,,, I had one 23 inches today

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you
