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

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
