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!!!

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,

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      The walleye bite the past couple days has gone from Boom to  almost Bust! There have been a couple of huge May fly hatches the last couple of nights along with a large Rusty Crayfish molt that have been making catching walleyes a real challenge! We are still getting some fish but now have to earn every fish! Lindys with 1/2 crawler fished VERY slow in 18" to 30" depths has been my best presentation. Cliff

      Thanks guys!  We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high.  We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river.  Is that a good stretch for smallies?
