Nice Classic this year. Some of the most decent weather

(cant call it nice)I can remember for the Fall event.

Big fish caught in the lake again this year. A nice

mix of locals and out of towners in the top 11.

limit, so there could have been more.

Mixed couple awards Gary and Lisa Asper, St Francis

Spring Summer Fall Top finishing team Sindelir and Johanssen

Top Finishing Lund Team Gary Swanson and Dave Setzler.

Kevin and Colleen and their crew work very hard and do a

great job. Up and down the roster the people who enter

these events love the fishing, the competition and will

admit they learn something new every year.

I will post next years schedule when it becomes available.

Some nice changes are in store.

OK now the rest of the story. On our way out to the

far off hotspots Friday morning. Since we are boat #1 we

are in the lead. The first good sized wave takes out

all of our electrical. No Depth finder, no gps, no pumps

zip!!!!!

The last couple of days of practice the steering

had been sticking more and more, I had LOW Marine check the

steering lines for air and hoped problem would be solved

but it kept getting worse. We kept going out towards the

hot spot but slowed down because others were going

to the same spot and would have to find if for us. Got to

the general area but could not get to the transistion line

because we were blind.

After a couple of hours in the wrong spot limped back

to the Morris Point Gap and found real nice fish but no

biggees. Saturday, back to MP since the steering was

really bad now, we had jump wired the Sonar/gps but still

didnt like heading out a long distance with stuff falling apart.

Now the good news. I dropped the boat at D & E Sunday and

Monday morning they called and said the boat was fixed!

The steering disaster was loose bolts inside the helm and

the electrical failure might still be a mystery because

they tightened a few wires and put in a fuse and it seems

to be working fine.

Even with trouble, plenty of fun. Met some great new people like

Corey and Mike, Matt and Mike and Shawn. Cant

wait till the spring event

Yoe T you did'nt fish it eh? That explains why I did'nt see your hotrod Ranger running around last week! Sure was quiet out there Wednesday and Thursday. Monday was really busy but then the weather was so fine that day. I did see old Curt and Mike out on Thursday though. Nice new rig you got there MrQ, you even had a chauffer behind the wheel!

      Shorelines are starting to open, do you see the wood ducks?

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?
    • Slopfishin
      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.  
    • TomWehler
      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!   
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.
