Break-On-The-Lake walleye tournament

3 posts in this topic

I fished Allen's Bay Oct. 2-4. Walleyes were in from 20' to 30'. Used Crawlers and redtails. Difficulty in fining many good perch. Am interested in finding some results of the WE tournament on BOTL.

Thanks,

Bill U

It was won by Al Ruzac of Sunset Cove... winning weight was 16lbs some odd ounce's... 6 fish, one 6 lb+ kicker. Lots of fish brought in and weighed, I believe around 9 lbs was the cut-off for 20th place... we didn't fare as well, only managed 2 over the 15" minimum... both were solid fish though, caught on cranks in 4-6 feet of water on the windward side of shore... we fought the 3 footers all day figuring if we got 2 we could muster out 4 more... should've went to my 'off shore' spots... oh well, there is always next year!

Good Luck!

Ken

First year for me fishing it. We ended up in a three-way tie for 30th. 6.06lbs. Hit a numbers spot in Allen's Bay. Caught about 8, only 2 legals. Went to the bigger water, picked up three 17"ers. Went to 2 more spots in Allen's Bay, and one on the main lake, with nothing but perch. Dragging jigs with rainbow minnows produced all the fish. One light "tap" on a redtail all day. The wind was pretty brutal.

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
