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!

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.

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!
