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.

      There are public beaches at both Hoodoo Point in Tower and McKinley Park in Soudan. Cliff

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs

      Vermilion is less than 20 miles... Or eagle nest 3 (and 1 and 2) are right next door.   You might check them out.

      Love seeing guys out training dogs but you can really do  some serious damage to your dogs neck if it runs hard for a long distance before being stopped suddenly when the check cord is attached to a collar. I would suggest a harness instead that has attachment at the back that you can clip your check cord to. It will also flow off the back and less likely to get tangled up in the legs and belly which can also be dangerous especially when in the water.   It doesnt look deep where you are but you never know whats under the water that could snag your check cord. Sorry dont mean to preach but I have seen it first hand where a dog has been seriously injured from this. I know the prey drive and hard charge these dogs have, but you got to keep them safe.   good luck

      Can you keep smallies from the Ottertail?  Thought there was a restriction on them in there.

      If I go on an infected water I get it cleaned regardless.  Granted 99% of the time I fish a non-infected lake but still get it cleaned just incase.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed a report of zebra mussels in Comfort Lake, near Wyoming in Chisago County.  The DNR confirmed reports from a lake resident who found individual zebra mussels in two different areas of Comfort Lake. The resident had previously attended a volunteer aquatic invasive species identification training conducted by the Comfort Lake-Forest Lake Watershed District. A follow-up survey by local partners and the DNR confirmed dispersed zebra mussels, indicating a possible reproducing population. Signs at lake accesses have been updated to alert boaters to the presence of zebra mussels. The DNR encourages all lake users to watch for zebra mussels and other invasive species and to contact the DNR if they find a suspected species that would be new to the lake. This confirmation is an important reminder to follow the state’s invasive species laws: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport. Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Zebra mussels are an invasive (non-native) species that can compete with native species for food and habitat, cut the feet of swimmers, reduce the performance of boat motors, and cause expensive damage to water intake pipes. Less than two percent of Minnesota’s 11,842 lakes are listed as infested with zebra mussels. More information is available at www.mndnr.gov/AIS. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
