Nice shot there DTRO>

I have to admit I was a happy camper winning 5 envelopes I took home a pretty penny last season!!!!!!

Better count me in Mates. Gonna have to take a shot at retaining the title.

I'm Hard pressed to be giving up my Pimping Flat Cat Hat.

thanks

This is the post I've been waiting for. Now it's spring. Last year was my first year catfishing, and it would have been pretty dismal without all the help from this league. If you are thinking about trying catfishing, there isn't a better way to get started. I definitely want to fish with the league this year.

I see that the hats I donated are being put to a good use.Since they are for the winners, I,ve picked up something that the losers can be photographed with. Hanson, since you live closest to me, if I were to get it to you, could you take it to the gathering at Belle Plaine? That is, if you are going there. Give me a call and leave a message at 952-933-4929.

FYI - I have no river boat. I hope there's room. Grump thought there probably would be. I'll stop by Friday and we'll see I suppose. If not, I can always check into buying another boat....but the wife probably wouldn't approve.

I haven't given it much thought on how many people will be in the league, which we can discuss this Friday. Sounds like most everybody is back with 4-6 new members.

I believe it was hard to find riders last year for the league. Captains should be represented well. I moved up from rider to captain this year but have no problem sliding back to rider if it works best for the league.

Great thing about being a rider is you get to see how all the other captains fish the river, sort of like a guide service. But if you go with Grump, it'll just be a shuttle service. shocked.gif

:


Your being a capt this year with that new rig of yours Hanson.

I vote that Capts from last year have first dibs on shifting to riders if they want, Not that I'm saying that I want to be a rider after taking the cake on the Flats division being a capt last year.

(Yes thats smack talking to you guys.....shocked.gif)

I want a shot a seeing someone else torque a prop besides me.. LOL

I'm kidding.... though it would be unrealistic to say that I hope no one hits anything this year, It just happens confused.gif

See you friday Mates.

thanks

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.
    • BassThumb.
        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
