Just wondering how the fishing contest went this weekend....was there a good turnout...were there some nice size pike caught and released? Had some things come up and we weren't able to make it up there, but hope the turn out was great.

well all i can tell you is what i know, which ain't much smile.gif. there were 31 participants. maybe a bad choice of weekends? i don't know, but besides the gail force winds and 2-4 foot waves, we had a blast! major wind burn, and we felt like we got the crap kicked kicked out of us. but we slept good. we stayed at the camp ground, with the boat on our own dock. the evenings were nice and cool. great for sleeping, and no bugs. we fished hard all day saturday. caught one northern at 14 inches, had another one on about 10-12 pounds. i saw it once, then it got down wind of the boat. before we could get the boat turned around, it got under the boat and cut the line frown.gif .
that was it for saturday. we were up early sunday. the wind had changed from the south west. we had to head all the way down by rogers to find tollerable water. we finally boated one that went 33 inches or so before noon. we had to quit then for the trip home. there were two other fish at that point bigger. a 35 and a 40. still waiting on the results i guess. it was a good time over all. i will be back next year! hope to see some more people. my hats off to west wind for trying something new. thank you guys.
time for a week of work for recovery purposes.-------jigglestick,j.j., and joe g.(team jigglestick)--------

Thanks for the report Jig, I figured that's how it went. I don't think it was a bad weekend to choose, it's just that the fishing there is so weather dependent. I bet if we would have had a couple days of stable weather and a light wind, there would have been 50+ participants. And lots of nice fish. I for one hope they try it again next year becaue if I have more warning I would try to make it and bring a couple kids along. I think it's a good concept and I hope they try it again.

I have directed about 70 walleye tournaments, and I know how hard it can be to get started. My first tournament I had 17 boats. Now I run 6-10 events a year and average 50-60 boats. Tell the folks at West Wind to hang in there.
