Wigwam Fall Classic results

4 posts in this topic

Nice enough weather for the Fall Classic this year.

Al Thompson and Brock Dahl win again after a victory in

the spring classic they were back north jigging rock piles

for a final weight of 37.68 pounds....huge! They win four

thousand dollars for first place money and an extra grand

from LUND (I think) for the best finish in the spring and

fall classic events combined. 1 plus 1 easy to figure.

2. Mark Sindelair and Lorne Jonassen of Baudette. 28.64

3. Kevin Marchuk and Rick Amundson of Baudette. 25.15

4. Harv Lueck and Kent Christianson of Baudette. 22.36

5. Todd Prickett and Kurt Kainz of TRF 21.70

6. Dave Baker and Kick Pearson of Baudette 20.86

7. Brian Ney and Jim Ney Jr of Baudette 20.75

8. Carl Morman and Carl Thompson of Illinois 20.61

9. Tom Briggs and Scott Olmstead of Baudette 20.50

10.Jason Gibbins and Oliver Gibbins of Morson 20.41

Team Good Guys Mike Lindholm and Curt Quesnell were 28th

with 16.3 pounds

57 teams entered, 44 teams caught limits the first day

and the second day 38 teams limited. Remember there is

a 15 inch minimum length on the small end. 16 inch fish

are very plentiful and there are lots of 17s, some 18s,

and a few of those valuable fish just over 19 inches.

Nice job done by the Wigwam, Kevin Olmstead and his

tournament crew. Very fun, very frustrating and like

every year I made a couple of new friends. Still need

many more teams to enter and put this over the top.

Hey Scarface, didnt I see your Skeeter out there both

days?

Good job … you guys finished in the top half, that’s an accomplishment looking at the field of competitors. Nope that wasn’t my Skeeter you saw, mine sat on the trailer all weekend, spent my time chasing grouse, hunting deer, and shingling a roof. Next year I plan to enter.

      I think stoney point is good for wheelers only.  Tried horseshoe bay and followed the pressure ridge and could not find a place to cross.  Went back to Whipholt which had a good landing and went toward stoney point  Had to cross a small pressure ridge by the Island.  Once crossed, all the way to stoney  with no problem  fishing was SLOW, tried the deepest part of the Paris Trench all the way to 24ft. thinking of one last trip this weekend

         Thanks for the update, I completely understand why you choose to post this here instead of a different thread. I haven't been on the ice in WEEKS now, might be retiring the ice gear for the season and waiting for open water pannie season...Or the big lake.

      Hey monstermoose Im in princeton or by Longsiding.  I think I have a decent spot as the farmer says he sees them out there a lot.  Never found a better scout than a farmer.  Just havent hunted turkey much.  I appreciate the generous offer and the advice. Looking forward to watching my boys get the turkey fever.  Last year I would have hit you up for those spots as we did some sitting in blind to watch the sun come up. Thanks all for the advice and helping a new turkey hunter out.

      Know a guy that is out there today.  Unfortunately he is not fishing as he got hung up a breaker this morning.     The main sheet sounds like it is fairing well.  They have been accessing the lake from Whipholt and driving across.  Long drive.  Not sure about other accesses.
