Fishing is awesome!!! Fished the Eagles tournament on Sat and had our limit by 9:30. Caught fish shallow (5ft) with a jig and minnow. Caught fish on the breaks 10-20ft with live bait rigs and minnows. Just about all of the 75 teams had limits. It took 18lbs to win and 15 to get in the money. That's how good fishing was. Much better than the weather I might add.

Did you fish big drift? How did you end up?

12 lbs. is a good bag! big drift is right, if you would've had a nice kicker you would've been right up there!

Matt,

I fished on Sat. but with 3 kids in the boat on Plantan then Irving, but I am all signed up for the blue moon in June. 4th year now. One of the best ways to learn how to catch them.

When are you planning on fishing in one of the tourney's? It would be interesting to watch and see where ya place.

All I can catch is dinks except for prefishing. But this year I think we have our equipment problems fixed. After all I can't keep letting Chris take all the checks every year.

I fished the Kraus last year, and will again this year, and have fished some smaller tourney's through the years. This is always my busiest weekend, so the Eagles is out. Plus neither myself or my partner drink, so it's tough to pay for a membership to a bar...

I too was on Irving on Sat. I had clients out. Man was it chilly!! Fishing was great though!!

Chris can keep getting the checks! Husbands and wives who can compete together for that long and still come to shore with smiles deserve a check... wink.gif

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
