I've been in this tourney for the past 16 years.... this year was one of the best weather-wise, but it was by far the worst for catching walleyes. From what I heard few people were having any luck... I didn't even stick around this year to see what was weighed in!

Anyone know how many pounds took 1st place?

I heard fishing was also slow. Winners had 18 pounds and a few ounces. I guess they figured out the walleyes. Second dropped down to 13 lbs.

Yes it was a very slow day on the lake caught a few bottle bass and a nasty sunburn but no walleyes. We saw a few caught surprisingly during the noon hour. All our boat could catch were crappies. Where the heck were they in the winter?

Not very good fishing this year, the bright spot was Pelican had three of the top ten places. That hasn't happened in years. I guess stocking the bigger walleye may be helping. Tenth place was only five pounds and there were a lot of boats that were skunked. That's fishing!!

      My garage roof is leaking from last few weeks and i am very much tensed about it because i have tried many things to block the leaks but nothing can prevent it.So i must call Roof Repair expert for this or is there any way to prevent those leaks.

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
