Bass Tournament.

5 posts in this topic

Congrats to this years tournament winners Chad Johnson and John Janousek. Moreover, congrats and thank you to all the anglers and volunteers that made this event run smoothly. Few people realize the intensity and hard work that goes into putting this tournament on. And of course we cannot forget the community support. We had a phenomenal turnout this year and with out the support of the community, fisheries, and national park this event would not have happened. Everyone needs to give themselves a pat on the back for a job well done.

As part of the Fish Management Staff and Boat Check Staff, I am pleased to say that there was only one fish casualty out of all the smallies caught during the tournament. It was a lot of work on Saturday with the warm and sunny weather, but all fish turned out just fine.

Thanks again to all who were involved with the production of the tournament, especially the board members who do a great job. Lets make next year bigger and better!

Agreed! A big congratulations to Chad and John are in order. Both anglers worked very hard in practice. Chad and John also have just a ton of experience and are tough to beat on any body of water, not just Rainy.

The community of International Falls was just amazing. I have not been to a more welcoming, warm community for a tournament ever before. It was an awesome experience to be there this year.

See Ya!

thank you guys it was fun to win the event up there. As i said before the community should be very proud of what they have developed in the tournament in just two years.

You guys know how big the Fort event is, the first year of that they only had 37 boats so I think the I falls event will rival that one in a short while.

Great job, i cant wait to get back to Rainy for next year!

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
