Tyler Pemble 2000 In-Fisherman's Region 1 MASTER ANGLER C&R Channel Catfish WINNER!

Recommended Posts


Congratulations Tyler Pemble!

In-Fisherman's 2000 Region #1 MASTER ANGLER C&R Channel Catfish WINNER!



The Pemble's were clients of Backwater Guiding last August here on the upper Red in the Wahpeton ND region. Great bunch of nice folks them Pemble's are, hardcore catfisherperson's too folk's!

Tylers sister's and mother were into fish too on day one so we don't wish to leave them out. Tylers older sister is kinda cute too, EH.

Tyler was fishing with his father John Pemble and I when he hooked his winning trophy C&R channel Cat. The piggy went for a frog on a circle hook slip rig off a mid river snag. The cat was a solid 37" and a real Cat Scratch Red River SUMO piggy, WOOF-ye-ha, man that was fun!

We caught several 20 lb and bigger cat's that day and Tylers was the biggest we boated. He and his Dad had a few on that may have been much bigger too, one was for sure!

The Pembles are true sportsman and were eager to release this monster after a few quick photo's so it could get even piggy'r and meaner for the next angler to enjoy, well done John & Tyler!

You deserve it bud, good job!

Hope to see ya folks again this season on the Red.

I have a hunch you may be back?


(Side Note)

If I would have remembered to mail in a entry of mine for a C&R fall piggy walleye I would have had Region #1 Walleye C&R beat by a 1/4".


Oh well, she will be bigger and piggy'r this year!

      I remember the picture you are talking about, but I think it was last year some time and I just don't think I could wad through all of Duff's politic fall out to find it!  😵   One of my buddies put up those adhesive backed thin cork-board squires on two of his cabin walls. Pretty fun idea of his family growing up at the cabin.  With fishing, hunting pictures mixed in.

      Looks like their still running the small motel. Hope they rebuild it was a pretty nice place when they remodeled a few years ago.

      Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup were pretty much ice free this past weekend.  Spring Bay has ice as it's really protected.  Some ice in Richie but the west wind on Monday pushed it all to the east end.

      Sounds like cost/benefit analysis is underway...

      I tried finding the pic @Duffman posted of the board he put together for his basement/bar I think it was but no dice.  Too much for me sift through.  It was pretty cool though and maybe in line with the OP’s idea.   @leech~~, got some time and mad search skills to dig that one up?

      How is the ice build-up coming along? I can't wait until Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup freeze so that I can get to my place across the ice. I'm hoping for another low-slush year.

      Jim Zupancich, who works out of the flagship store in Ely, said the Zup’s in Cook has been in business for more than 20 years. He added: “We do OK there. It’s a living. We’ll get back on our feet.”   Jim didn't give much of an endorsement but I understand the economics. One of the early articles had the store manager saying that they would rebuild. A later article quoted one of the Zupancich's saying that they would assess the possibility of rebuilding. I think that we all hope that they will rebuild, and hopefully they had good insurance to make it an easy choice.

      As of mid July nothing was going on there. I drove in there, think I parked in the bar!

      Picked up a new supply of pretreated cleaning patches and some Blackhorn loading tubes tonight at Shooting Sports.   I’m just dabbling with getting things ready but the more I do, the more motivated I get to go.  Too bad you’re so wrapped up in hockey this time of year that you can’t really get into it now!  Good to spend time with the kids but ignoring the call is tough.

      Drove by there this morning.  Definitely a sad deal for owners, employees and people in the community.  I also feel for the deer hunters who lost the deer there being processed.  We are hopeful that they will rebuild.
