CONGRATS TO JOHN J. & CHAD J.///I.FALLS BASS CHAMPS!

9 posts in this topic

NICE TO SEE JOHN & CHAD WIN THE I. FALLS BASS CHAMPIONSHIP, THESE BOYS CAN FISH...MANY YEARS AGO I HELPED WEIGH THEIR BASS IN A TOURNEY PUT ON BY DENNYS SUPER 30, AND I BELEIVE STILL HOLD THE RECORD FOR THE LARGEST 5 BASS WEIGHED IN A RAINY(U.S.) SIDE. SEEMS LIKE IT WAS 25.5 & A 2ND DAY OF 22.5...THEY WERE BASS LIKE I HAD NEVER SAW BEFORE, WHEN THEY GET MASSIVE IN SIZE, THE STRIPES REALLY STAND OUT. THEY TOOK HOME A CHECK FOR 8,000 THAT DAY, AND THEN TODAY SET A NEW 2 DAY BAG RECORD FOR THE I FALLS BASS TOURNEY, AND TOOK 10 GRAND TODAY. THIS MORNING AT HARDEES, SOME OF THE BASS FISHERMAN STOPPED IN AND I TOLD THEM I WOULD PUT MY MONEY ON JOHN & CHAD, BECAUSE YESTERDAY THEY DID WELL ON THE LAKE & TODAY THEY HAD THE RIVER, SO I FIGURED THEY WOULD GET ANOTHER BIG BAG TODAY + THEY KNOW THE WATERS. SO I THINK THEIR VERY DESERVING!!!

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

Congrats to Chad and John. I went to school with both of them at BSU, unfortunately I haven't run into them in quite a few years. Good to hear they are successful.

I still wonder if John catches all those fish in his scrapbook, I seem to remember a fish or two of mine in there with him holding it. Hmmm?

Thank you to everyone We had a blast again at the I falls championship. We love to come up and fish Rainy lake.

Fishmeister the bags from the Denny's were not quite that big! We did have 21lbs the first day and 17 the second day.

the 21 lb bag was still a load, the only other bag bigger was weighed at the Fort event By Raveling and Luhman they had close to 22lbs one day.

Again I want to thank the volunteers and the tournament committee they did a great job.

for any of you that see him Congratulate Gary Potter with out his work this tournament would not have happened.

I alos want to thank My partner Chad! He has now won 50% of the major bass tournaments on Rainy lake MN side!!!

HI J.J.,

THANKS FOR THE CORRECTION, I KNEW THOSE BASS WERE MASSIVE IN THE DENNYS SUPER 30 & I WOULD HAVE PUT MONEY ON THE 25 & 22 LBS., AS I DID THE WEIGH IN WITH KEVIN PETERSON, THE D.N.R. FISHERIES MANAGER., BUT AGE+BEING A FISHERMAN...THOSE WEIGHTS MUST HAVE GROWN OVER THE YEARS.(L.O.L.) CONGRATS ON WINNING THE TOURNEY...ITS WELL DESERVED!!!

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

      Well I know many of you are not going to believe me but I went out side (I have no clue why) and looking in the grass and saw what looked like a bunch of small twigs. Well they weren't sticks they were night crawlers! I grabbed a bucket and was able to grab 8 of them that was the first time I've got any for a long time so I missed a lot as I was way too slow went out a few minutes ago and there was none. I got them all around 7pm. Texted buddys and none of them believed me a few pictures turned that around. They all went looking and they found none must have been my area the hot spot maybe? Not really ice fishing related but its the middle of February not july finding some thawed dirt was a bit tricky either froze or mud after digging around I found some good stuff. Hoping the ice holds up and it will be safe for next weekend I'm going to have to try them for gills maybe. I've never used crawlers in the winter any of you? I've still got lots of waxes though. Now I fell I'm rambling but felt I had to share this!
