8 posts in this topic

Hey guys, don't know if many of you are golfers out there, but I recently got done putting together the 2nd Annual Denny Phelps Memorial Golf Tourney. The event is Sat Sept 23rd. Details are:

Friday eve Phelps Fish Fry at Turtle River Golf(aka Castle's) 6pm

Sat 10 am shotgun start 18 holes four person texas scramble golf.

Dinner and awards banquet 71 bar immediately after golf. I would say approx 5pm.

Entry fee is $50 per person-entry includes fish fry, golf, and 71 bar dinner after tourney. Five dollars out of each entry will be donated in Denny's name to Take A Kid Fishing. If you want to just attend Fish Fry Fri, the cost is only $5 and it will go to Take A Kid Fishing.

Sign up for tourney is at 71 bar and Turtle River Golf.

Thank You!!!!

Matt

Yeah Chris I know, Squirrel started putting this together for this date. It was the only time it could be. I knew it was the same time, but I need to do this. It will raise money for a good organization and a lot of people will have a lot of fun and have great food. Including me!! I have been having fishing withdrawals though, I would like to fish this tourney. It is well ran. Good luck to you. Take care.

Scott - you need to create your own team. four people on a team. you can sign up by calling turtle river golf at 586-2681, or 71 bar during the day at 586-2274 talk to Terry, or you can call me at 586-2953 or 766-3818. leave a message if you can. Scott - if you don't think you want to play, or can't, you can at least attend the fish fry on friday eve and pay $5, or more if you want, that will go to take a kid fishing. I sincerely appreciate your interest.

      I hope this weekend is better than last!!  I know there is a  lot of ducks around but they have so many places to hide.

    • If you want to stay away from the crowd I would suggest Beacon Harbor I think after jan 1st they don't allow day passes its only beacon harbor and outdoor authority who have houses there. Then they allow only a limited amount of yearly passes.

      Now they don't have all the bells and whistles like a bar and food ect but John and Ann are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. Not to mention I personally think it is some of the best.

       

      Now if you needed a bar and food and all that my choices would be Rogers or Westwind

      Today was the complete opposite of yesterday. The current coming out of light house gap made a pocket of clear water out in the lake overnight, fished right on the edge of the muddy water in 14 feet of water and went through 3 bags of frozen shiners and caught a bunch on plastics after the minnows were gone. Nothing fantastic for size, only 3 in the slot but nice limits of 14-17 inchers and a ton of smaller fish. Once that muddy water gets blown out or clears up the bite is going to be crazy good!

      I got 4 nice ones last Friday in about 8' to 9' of water in a channel off Wakemup Bay .  It was the last hour of daylight.  Tried a couple times during the day Saturday and right before dark and struck out.

      Zach-

      I have been making annual ice fishing trips with friends for about 12 years ago.  We have tried LOTW, Mille Lacs, Red and one other lake that happened to be where we could use a free cabin for a weekend.  With that one exception for the free cabin, we have also rented sleepers.

      We have never made it to Devils Lake, but it is on my personal bucket list just because of the possibility of those monster perch.

      Six years ago, we ended up back on Red and no longer consider any other option.  Here's why:

      • This fishing is good.
      • The Petrowske family are wonderful hosts.
      • No other resort that we have used has come close to being wonderful hosts.  They just didn't put any effort into it.

      Now, I don't know how that you translate to your running portables, but I have never been disappointed with our trips to URL.

      Hope that helps.

      You should definitely try Devils lake I went 3 years ago and had a blast. Not only did we get put on a good perch bite but they put us on an Insane walleye bite the guy said it was about an hour window from when the sun starting setting and boy was he right in that hour I caught walleye after walleye after walleye. As soon as I would start reeling one up another mark would take its place on my graph and I couldn't get my lure down fast enough.

      I am sure Johnny P is all booked up on weekends by now and for some reason some of the guys don't like sleeper houses all though I may push for it this year last year was such a hassle packing everything up for the night loading the trucks having to bring sleds and wheelers. I much rather bring my flasher couple rods and lots of beer. I go fishing enough running and gunning its nice to have a break where you just show up and fish.

       

      I usually go to red 3-4 times a year and last year we did go to red for our work trip as well. Just weighing the options.

       

      Has anyone ever rented house from Arties bait on big stone?

      I don't know what to say, we crushed em jigging in 30 feet last Friday while getting knocked around in the waves. Anchored up and never moved. Lots of boats on the river already then and not good reports at that point. I was going to go back up for Saturday and if I did I would go straight out to 30 feet again.

      Gee, think things might be rigged?  Got to be there in person to bid.  Maybe they would get a better price if bidding were on line?  Of course that would inhibit the buddy system.  Make it inconvenient to bid, get lower bids, make the in crowd happy. 

    • Anyone sniffing any fall-pattern crappies??   Have they found the way to the basin-areas or nearby the basin areas ?   Thanks
