Hi ya'll...Well the Dryton Tournament came and went. I didn't do as well as I had hoped this year, but I'll be back next year. My buddy and I ended up with 6th place bringing in a fish just under 15lbs. The top weight was 22lbs (wow) that's a nice fish! Other weights that followed were pretty close together, so all-in-all it was a pretty good day on the water for most. If you haven't fished the drayton tournament, you should give it a go next year. It's a cheap tournament to enter and lots of fun. The thing I like the best is they now pay down a few places, two years ago when I fished it, I placed 6th and didn't win anything, so it was nice to atleast get my money back this year.

Rusty, I did see you at the Drayton Tournament. Was this your first year at that tournament? How did you do? Also, who was fishing in the other river pro, I believe he was the lucky man to take home 1st place?

Guess I'll see you at Cats Incredible (if your fishing it this year). Good luck!!

If I see you there I'll introduce myself this time...

Yeppers I was there.. My first time there above the dam.. It was hard fishing.. I did not even boat a fish.. sigh sigh.. My buddy in the RP was Steve Corkrin, he owns Valley fun source where we sell the RPs. What a lucky dog he was.. I taught him every thing he knows ... LOL... I should have not taught him so well I see.. LOL LOL...

I did fish the Cats Incredible....
As for river details... Wow is our river down.. . Even the RP can no longer run the river.. only cause I cant get it off the trailer... The big sand bar below the dam is now huge.. real good fishing off that now.. Small boats for pulling over the dike is a good option now..

Fish on..

Oh by the way Wiskers and Tamer Group won 14th place in Cats Incredible Catfishing tournament and second place for biggest fish.. woooooooooohooooooooo....

With out the RP we could not have gotten to the good spots or beat every one there to snach the first good spots.........The bait tamers kept our bait alive all weekend so we had fresh bait all weekend..

Way to go! I had a tough time this year at Cats Inc. After day one we had 5 fish at 28lbs, good enough for 21st place. The second day was horrible for us. We only boated 2 fish all day for a total of 10lbs, wich dropped us all the way to 70th place. A limit on day two would have helped alot! Oh well what can you do, but wait for next year to come around.

Again congratulations on your good finish.

By the way what was your top bait for the tournament this year? Our's was frogs. We caught our 13lber on frogs and every other fish as well. We did catch one small one we let go on Saturday on a Sucker minnow head.

      Great job guys!! I got 8 shots off the first one was good then I missed 7 in a row. Gordie got one and well river rat got zero. It was a hoot to hunt with them.

      I have a 2018 ice castle with the GS trailer frame. Are you supposed to drill holes to let water out of the tubes or do the new GS trailers have holes in them already? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Been awhile since I posted, busy summer but finally got the kayak back out on the Mississippi to chase after them fall smallies. The bite was really good and managed a new personal best at 21"! Bait of choice is my wacky worm, they never can resist! I'll be chasing these till ice is on the lakes. Best fishing is right around the corner, goodluck everyone!    Video:  https://youtu.be/PJOZITB0ol0
