Tournament weather

2 posts in this topic

I bet alot of our guest from the southern state who are currently pre-fishing for the Federation Tournament on the chain are wondering what kind of weather we have smirk.gif I sure hope the Chamber takes notice of the amount of money these people are putting into the system. I understand that there are 60 boats and 120 anglers. Thats alot of hotel rooms, meals and gas. By the first tournament day (wednesday) the weather should get back to normal. But I saw some of these guys at the landings today, and they have some serious doubts about the sanity of anyone who would live here wink.gif you know the same doubts we have in February.

It was awesome out on the chain these last three days. This is what minnesota is all about. It was cold, and it should get better for the fishing. I love my state.

      The thumb nail method is tough for those that chew em!   I don't but know people who do.   I haven't used an official split ring pliers but a couple precision sizes have worked well.  This is a cheap set I like to have around.

      I use forage minnows and other types of jigging spoons also. Usually tipped with minnow head or waxies.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4
