I took advantage of your vidio On core presentation. Love it Im able to see what I would have missed. All good information even for a old guy like me.

What I noticed 1st and I think is so cool is the fact a women is included in the UPL. Which gave thought to the future that perhaps there will eventually be a women VS Men tourny for some internal friendly competition.

I havent been out much this winter. Used to be Id ice fishn from 1st ice to pushing the boat thru rotten ice at ice out. I was hoping there would have been more information on the local lakes. Peltier. ? is as dead Ive encounterd.?

Medicine lake is where I lived as a baby..... Dad would tie the cane poles to the 59 Chevy and we'd head to rent a boat. Caught alot of weeds in those days. Which brings up the interesting issue of fishing the weeds, inside out side....15 feet out to 17 feet, during the winter. Here I am a basin fisherman. Im mostly a crappie guy but will chase the gills if the lake has size. 8 inches seems reasonable. All Id seen on the Medicine lake post were smaller crappies and not alot of mention of gills. You all proved differently with the fish size.

If I have apoint to make, its you guys and gals are pretty good at what you do.Must be alot of fun. Its interesting to note the areas of sectretive notation that you divulge that mabey makes one team outfish the other under especially tough conditions. I agree the accuracy using a gram scale to be sure the weight difference vs length difference is a winners edge being its all about weight.

When I hit a lake again, Ill be bit of a better fisherman for watching your vidio.

Good Job. Gals Vs Guys tourney in the future. ?

      I just moved to Minnesota, I live in Maplewood and looking for somewhere near by to fish for catfish from the shore. Any suggestions?

      Nice to trip for the family it looks like. A round home here in central MN, the fish are very much in that phase of,    Bass- they are three phase right now, some are post spawn, some are spawning and on beds, other are still pre-spawn and staging.  Nice that most tactics can work on a single lake but each day is different.   Panfish are similar, most fish are still staging but alot of males are shallow and some beds are being swept.   Pike-have been all over the board here.  I have figures out a great system yet.   Walleye- are still preferring shiners and other minnows right now.  Leeches have not really produced well with the exception of the river bite.  Most fish still biting in less than 16ft of water.   Water temps- continue to be very lake dependent.  I have been seen 60-65 degrees on most smaller lakes and the bigger 2000 acre lakes I am seeing from 55-60 degrees main lake.

      Sounds like you got your money’s worth!   I hunted 3 afternoons in the C season is all, due to being too busy with work and projects or too tired/lazy to get up in the morning.  Didn’t take any time off work to chase with all the COVID stuff going on.  The bird I did get was one one the easiest birds I’ve ever taken on the first day of the last season.     I guess what I’m saying is you EARNED that bird and should rightfully be proud!

      Well I hunted just about every weekend during this turkey season and some days during the week. I just could not get a jake or Tom to come and play. Until this morning I was watching a buck and two yearlings all morning they just never presented a good photo opportunity. I was calling and I hear a gobble!! O yeah I get the crossbow Set up for an easy pick up. I look to the west and see a deer looking into the woods. I look to the east and see two turkeys making a bee line to me. At 50 yards I can’t see a beard on either of them, but I pick the crossbow up and get ready. The first turkey has a little beard at 20 yards I can see it. They go out sight and he comes up next to the blind and heads out 3-4 yards. That tiny beard looks like 15 inch rope at this point in my season and turns to give me a spine shot. Game over a full hunting season used and   Turkey 🦃 wild rice soups is cooking!!
