How did every one do in the Lions tourney on Sunday?

Recommended Posts

uphill

Just thought I would see how everyone at FM that was at Sunday's tourney did. We fell in to a good pattern adn had 5 fish by 8:30 but needed some bigger ones and caught a few but only enough to weigh in at 9.98 with one that died on us which is amazing considering all of the other fish in the live well were alive and kickin' but not in the money. If we could have had a mixed bass bag I caught 4 large mouth that were around 4.5 #'s. So nothing to brag about just like to see how others did. Phil

Good time- bag weighed 12.4# with the biggest being 3.8#. I think we were around 12th or 13th place. Maybe alittle higher next year- Still a good time.

12.02 lbs here for a 15th spot finish.

All 5 fish we had were 16-17 inches. We never had a bigger fish on all day. A coupla 18+ fish woulda been a nice add, but it wasnt to be.

Everything did seem to go smooth better than past tourneys. The only thing is they really should have someone selling coffee and donuts in the morning. Not that I need donuts but I was out of coffee before I got there.

How long does this tourney go for? I might have to enter with my son next year.

We go out on the river quite a bit and we catch 20 pounds of smallies in an hour or two. You guys don't know the secret. tongue.gif

85 boat field possible. This year there were 65. Come one, come all. Its a VERY fun tourney. Lots of water for big boats and the shallow runnin' type.

We'd love to take your money... Er I mean we'd love to have you join us. cool.gif

That'd be fun. Is there a youth division? I would probably bring either my 6 year old or a buddy of mine that fishes like a youth. :-)

      I have an STP frog cutter so I make my own.

      The torque tab counters the pull caused by the rotation of the prop.   Trimming the outboard in or out(up & down) can make a pull show up or go away.   Your Merc uses an allen wrench or a socket and extension to reach the bolt to loosen the torque tab.  Merc uses a right hand rotation.  If the bow wants to turn right by itself you would move the torque tab towards to the center.

      Thanks, a day well spent with a good person for sure. Thanks again for the work you put in at the end of the trip!  Your fishing needs to get in better shape I think!😓

      You and that Senko were dialed in, no doubt about that!  I think if the wind wasn’t as harsh we could’ve explored the deeper water a little better and maybe got the jig bite dialed in on the hens.  Either way it was a fantastic fishing experience. Some day I’ll try a Senko - maybe. 😃   I think you’ll do very well there this weekend.  Thanks again for taking me with.  It was the best day of open water fishing I’ve had for some time, both fishing and partner wise.

      Made my wife move to the other side of the boat... Great weight shift!😅  Had to cook my own supper that night. ☹️

      Kinda quiet here.  Ive been out a number of times and have had a hard time finding anything consistent for active fish,  crappies or eyes.  Did ok this past weekend but fish were" one here and one there".  Cold front Sat. didn't help.  Looking forward to the weekend with some stable weather and a better bite.

      I opened up my by bass fishing season this past weekend with the great company of @Wanderer. The catch numbers were great by most respects.  Size was a little smaller on average than I had hoped, I kinda bragged up this little gem and size fell a bit short. 17 as approx the max size we boated on Sat. Fished seem to be in groups concentrated in certain areas, very scattered in between.  Our best action came fishing away from shore, better fish as well.  Plenty of fish were crusing on the shorelines as well they definitely ran smaller though. Wanderer was able to show me how to work a jig effectively as that has never been a tactic I am proficient at.  Thanks Wanderer.  I tried to show the ease and effectivenss of the Senko.   It all  work well as we probably boated over a hundred fish for the day. Everyone share your 2018 Bass experiences here, keep us in loop of what is working you!

      Thanks, James! That weather really put fish on the move. Our focus for the tournament was to get two big bites and catch a pair over 26". We felt like in order to do that we had to go west. We had a milk run of spots that were taking big wind so we just rotated through them during the day. Our fish came from 3'-13' casting jerkbaits, Rippin Raps and swimbaits. My dad had been catching a lot of walleyes on shallow rocks while pre-fishing for the bass tourney which really tipped us off on some locations and presentations. We only caught six walleyes during the tournament but they were the right ones. We feel unbelievably fortunate to have had such an awesome experience!

      So so true @Borch!! I am excited to see this grow and read all the reports
