2006 Annual Diamond Lake Tournament Results

4 posts in this topic

Just like last year, the weather turned out to be perfect for an excellant day of fishing. For some teams the walleyes cooperated and for others it turned out to be a tough bite. The tournament started at 7:00am the morning of the 19th and ran until 2:00pm that afternoon. Seven teams showed up for this annual event. Hopefully it will continue to grow each year. The interest was there, but many teams had other commitments that day. At the end of the day, four of the seven teams brought in fish to be measured. Like last year, team Pietig brought in some real nice fish. But unlike last year, Bryan was fishing with his brother Kyle this year. The two of them brought in a six fish limit, with the fish measuring 23",21",19",18",18",and 17". This was more than enough to take home first place. Coming in second was my brother and I with four fish and third went to team Coleman. Team Johnson also brought in one fish. I would like to personally thank all who participated in this years event and hope everyone will return again next year for the annual diamond lake walleye tournament. Congratulations to team Pietig on being the 2006 champs.

I think I speak for all when I say we really appreciate the amount of time walleyeking has put in to the league and tournaments. It was good to see a few more fish get caught than last year with a bunch of short fish coming from everyone the way it sounded, couldnt have asked for better weather after a few days of crap. I hope I will be living closer next year so we can get back in the league as well.

      First time up in Brainerd in 3 years. Went to big trout on Friday, thinking it would be a guarantee (which it usually is). Nope! Not even the rock bass were hitting! Only ended up with a couple pike and a couple largemouths. The inspector at the boat launch was showing me some pics of a couple lake trout this one guy had caught a few days earlier, a 34 and 36 incher! Saturday we were going to fish gull, but it was jam packed with people! Was there a tournament going on? Ended up at a secret little lake where my wife caught bass and pike one right after the other, while I couldn't get a bite to save my life! Was good to be back up there after a 3 year absence. Hopefully I'll find the time to get up there again.

      Very nice walleye no matter how the picture came out! Do not see many of those each year!

      We ended up keeping 9 walleyes and releasing 3 slot fish between 19" and 23".

      Here's the proof of the 28" I told you about today cliff. Unfortunately this picture doesn't make this fish out to be nearly as impressive as she was in person. I'm gonna need to work on my selfie skills.

      Interesting headline in the Virginia newspaper this morning. The Landing is being sued by past employees for not paying minimum wage, not paying overtime, and keeping up to 50% of the employees tips that were received via credit card.

      Drove to Ely yesterday and there were some pockets of great color. I would definitely think next weekend would be worth the trip.

      I would say that we are about 1/4 into fall colors in this area.
