Hey steve good luck sat. I here it could be interesting. Floating docks and docks under water. Lake from 3' low to way high go figure. They were saying today they cant open the dam because the rivers cant handle more water.

The way the Island lake dam has been run the last few years it'll probably be 3ft low again soon.

It's 3" high right now, so it's not way high. Last year it was at full pool, year before that 4' low, year before that full pool. With the exception of 2010, when we had a very early thaw, I think they are doing a fine job of managing the water levels.

Fishing has not been too bad actually on Island for me. Fish are biting. common theme was fish deep! 20 to 25 feet best success. Slip bobber and leach, or jig and half a crawler. Good Luck! Remember Island Lake is not a "lake". It is a reservoir designed to produce hydro electric power first, recreation second. The way the water levels are handled these days are so much less volatile than they were before the 1990's. 10 to 15 feet below the normal water level mark was not uncommon.

Theres fish all over from what Im hearing. It will be a real challenge to see where the nicer fish are. Im guessing we will do the old shallow early and deeper after 9 deal. We will let the fish tel us what they want. I just hope I can find some 16-20" eyes and not a bunch of them island lake 11"ers. wink

Wasn't able to make the event this year, but I am curious to see how it went. How did ya do? What was the winning weight? How much money was raised this year for Als?

That's good to hear. It just seems like over the last few years either the landings were under water, or you couldn't use them because there wasn't enough water. Maybe I've just been going out there at the wrong times. Either way I hope everybody had a good tourney. Nice to see people doing things for others.

It's a great event for a great cause. This year the final tally was $155,000! A new best for the tournament. Weather was awesome. First place was 10.8. Biggest fish caught was 3.0lb. Jmiller and myself didn't do to hot, threw everything but the kitchen sink at them. It's fun to be out there and support a great cause.

Ya we blanked as well. Lots of dinks but no keepers. Had 1 nice one on that would have taken big fish but oh well.

It was my first time and I had a blast! It was a well run and a great tournament for a great cause. Fishing was tough but we weighed 1 fish and I threw back one was probably legal but didn't want to chance it. And it was good to see you too Steve!
