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 took the boat out for a test run last weekend to a quiet little lake. Water temp was 54. This weather isn't going to help with the water temps.

      Is the Vermilion egg capture complete?

      I hope to be out early next week.  Weather and river level depending.  Will post a report if I make it out.  Boat all ready to go.

      I camp on an island so I don't have to worry about the landings and crowds. Do most of our fishing at night so I never worry about other anglers. If I needed to go to a public landing for opener I would never go. 
    • I fish, therefore I lie
      Here's the State's definition of a public water. Please note the highlighted text.  The Sucker is a Designated Trout Stream. (remember the blasting and improvements made back in the 70's? Those were public dollars that paid for it. )  That said, this isn't license for people to slob up private property, only to gain access to the stream. It might mean walking the shoreline from bluebird landing, or down from the freeway, but the water is open, and fishable,  to the high water mark. Subd. 15.Public waters. (a) "Public waters" means: (1) water basins assigned a shoreland management classification by the commissioner under sections 103F.201 to 103F.221; (2) waters of the state that have been finally determined to be public waters or navigable waters by a court of competent jurisdiction; (3) meandered lakes, excluding lakes that have been legally drained; (4) water basins previously designated by the commissioner for management for a specific purpose such as trout lakes and game lakes pursuant to applicable laws; (5) water basins designated as scientific and natural areas under section 84.033; (6) water basins located within and totally surrounded by publicly owned lands; (7) water basins where the state of Minnesota or the federal government holds title to any of the beds or shores, unless the owner declares that the water is not necessary for the purposes of the public ownership; (8) water basins where there is a publicly owned and controlled access that is intended to provide for public access to the water basin; (9) natural and altered watercourses with a total drainage area greater than two square miles; (10) natural and altered watercourses designated by the commissioner as trout streams; and (11) public waters wetlands, unless the statute expressly states otherwise.
