Last nights Wall -Mart Kids Fishing Derby is now complete

The 28 boys and girls[number was down from52 from last year]was again a success.

The top fisherperson caught 20 fish tying the record for our I and half hour contest.

The largest fish was caught by our youngest angler.

Half the fisherpersons were girls.

Again besides prizes of rods and reels,t-shirts ,hats,and lots of tackle the Charlie Carver cash Awards went out[thanks Charlie]

The moving back one week so the new playground could be built was pretty much the reason for declining attendance as this week evening baseball and softball etc started and many of the kids with prioritys in place were off to their games.

Next year we will be back in the week of no other evening sports.

The new playground is fantastic[hats off to the Figenskaus seed and persistence in getting this built]

The kids did a group photo so you sponsors will be getting a print of this.

Again thanks, next kids tourney July 14 from 12 to 2 at Saulbury Beach Landing,it to is free thanks to sponsors,

Kids you can preregister starting now so we can get prizes and grab bags ready.

      Agreed, 25 does seem big for a 12' boat
    • Sculpin
      Make sure you take a couple minutes and look for the rating plate in that boat, if it exists it should be back on or near the transom somewhere. I'd be very careful about hanging a 25 HP motor on a 12 foot boat, as it may not be rated for 25 HP. Some 12's are different than others, more depth, more beam, etc. so the motor ratings can vary. Proceed with caution.

      25 hp will be plenty for 12 foot boat with any amount of weight added.  I have no pics, sorry.  As stated really easy to do, your buddy should get er done in under three hours.  Don't spend a lot of money on the boat seats, I bought the cheap ones then added a outdoor chair pad for comfort.

      I was out there on opener as well and caught a lot of small fish. Averaged about 30 walleyes a day but nothing bigger than 17". Last weekend the bite was a lot tougher which I would assume was due to the weather.

      Has anyone heard of a giant walleye caught on the Saturday of opener?  Sounds like the boat called the DNR and they rushed right out to take pictures, etc. Not sure if it was close to the record or not, but I heard it was a giant.

      Ha, fixed.

        Wow that looks great! What type of wood did you use if you dont mind me asking?

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.
