Hey all. Anyone know if the Faribault Chamber of Commerce is going to host the Bass Challenge again this year?

I got this response in March:

"We are having a meeting next week to determine the status of the bass challenge for this year. The only thing that is certain is that it will not be in June like it has been the last 2 years due to other events going on at that time. We will be sending out information in early April regarding the tournament.

Thanks,

Todd Ginter

Tourism and Events Director"

AND THEY ARE TRYING TO MAKE IT MORE FOR THE LESS EXPERIANCED ANGLERS AND BY MAKING IT MULTI SPECIES IT WOULD STEER AND I QOUTE "YOU PRO GUYS" OUT SO APPARENTLY BASS TOURNEY GUYS ARE NOT WELCOME. AT LEAST THAT WAS THE VIBE I GOT

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      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
