Ran into some UPL guys today

Recommended Posts

I was out on Big Marine fishing a tipup tourney with a few guys and ran into some guys pre fishing for the BM UPL tourney. I wandered over and spoke with one of the guys for a bit and really enjoyed the conversation. This guy served sportsman well in that he answered my questions as to tactics and such, and was very personable and polite the whole time. I hated to take up to much of his attention as he was prefishing so I kept my time with him short so he could fish. Very interesting guy and left me with a great impression of what a tourney fisherman should be like. Great experience and I learned a few things from him.

Rascal, there is a waiting list but I would keep June 1st on your calendar next year. That's when any spots open up and then it's first come, first serve. Here is where you get registration info.

      Saturday we hit the South Shore in 30-60' for water.  Multiple hits and releases off the boards, dipseys, and downriggers but no hookups. Went something like 1 for 10 with a nice 29" walleye taken off a pink Husky Jerk and 3 oz of lead on board line.  Marked quite a few fish throughout that depth.

      The pictures were from Amazon, if you can't find it locally.   Jann's Netcraft has a lot of that stuff also. Comes in a variety of thicknesses/strengths.   Some folks use crimped sleeves especially with the thicker stuff.

      Yup!  14 will get cut, as will 20 from time to time.  I’ve run enough different fluorocarbon to get to the conclusion 20 lb is the best combination of fish ability and pike protection for the gear I use.  Anything less and the bite offs are easy.  Anything more and the stiffness kills the action too much and is hard to tie.   I’ll be looking for those leader materials you posted though.  I need something like that for a couple muskie rigs I want to experiment with.

      Vermilion is in low 70's

      A decent pike will bite through 20 pound flouro in a heatbeat.  Certtainly 14 pound like happened to me yesterday....

      Still a good bite on the rocks, just fewer humps having fish. Takes some searching to find a group. However, the fish still on the rocks are biters...and some big ones. I've been spending part of each day pulling cranks with lead core or flat lining and that is putting lots of fish in the boat also. I'm not seeing the huge schools in the mud anymore, just pods here and there but very fishable. Also catching some jigging. The water is amazingly cool still...below 70 every morning off the south shore. It has been a while since so many fish have been hanging within a few miles of the south shore. Boats are scattered over a huge area from around 28 feet and out. Sure nice not having to make long runs all the time. Fall fishing could be terrific this year with all the fish still on the south side. Forgot to mention the lack of algae blooms. Can't remember a year without major blooms by mid August. Good luck

      Thanks Hoey.

      Good luck.  There are a gazillion of those corner caps online.

      Excellent Del, closest one I have seen so far! Thanks a bunch, I'll check it out
    • delcecchi
      I did a google on "corner cap" and gunwale corner cap.... Saw some stuff that looked like it would work.   here is one.   this is from Australia but probably could find something here.   Also a bunch of pontoon stuff might be adaptable.     Another thought is to look at Lund models and find one that uses the same hull as your boat only is more recent....   My guess is that Lund has been using basically the same hulls for a bunch of different models for years.   I bet you can find one that has similar corner caps as what you need.   You could even give them a call.
