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!

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
