Co/Angler needed

Recommended Posts

Guest

Iam looking for a co/angler for the 2003 FLW Wal-Mart RCL Walleye Tournament set for Mille Lacs lake on June 28th. The site is Mac's Twin Bay. The co/angler fee is $75. You will be placed in a drawing at the rules meeting Friday night June 27th. You will then find out who your partner is. By entering on my application form, we would both be guarenteed a spot in the tourney.

Top co/angler purse is $1,250 and a new boat. 2nd-15th is cash.

Co anglers are not to provide anything. Your partner will provide everything for you. You only provide rain gear and lunch.

Let me know if your interested or need more info.

Thanks

Anybody else interested in going as the angler, it looks like there is plenty of people who would like to sign up with you? I would register as an angler but my pro-v 1660 does not meet there 17' boat requirments, so I too would like to go as a co-angler.

smile.gif i wasn't sayin i would turn tourny
it would be cool one time to fish one and see what happens, or even a smaller ice fishing one. i definitely have no time to fish a tournament when i barely have time for anything else. i dont know how people fish so many tournaments, it seems it has to be their only job. good info though morris u a cool kid smile.gif when we gettin out again?

hey pig-sticka go for it. fishing tournaments is fun. and you do not have to be on daddy's bank account. I am a young guy and I work my *** off to be able to fish tournaments. I work hard to make money so I can take a little time off before a tournament. They are fun and you learn ALOT of things that will make you a better angler. dont let one person's opinion turn you off to tournament fishing. it is a good time and a great way to learn.

Morriscode,

I agree with a lot of what you posted, but I also disagree with some of your thoughts.

You're right fishing is suposed to be fun. I fish tournaments and have fun doing them. Yes, the tournament environment may need to be a little faster paced, and pre-fishing needs to be a little more serious if you want to do well, but that is my competitive nature. I also have time during the summer to take the boat out and relax with my wife. The winter provides time to take it easy, enjoy a beer, and relax as well if I want to.

Some people, including my wife, will say that at times I am not as much fun to fish with as I used to be. I have other friends that want to fish with me more because I'm learning something new every day I'm on the water. By coming with me they can absorb some of the information that I'm learning. If you want to catch fish consistently you have to be versatile and continue to absorb information. You won't find any professional fisherman saying they know everything about everything.

Hopefully some day I will have some stickers on my truck and boat. If I do, they will be sponsoring me in one way or another. If I don't, oh well. Some times the pot of gold isn't at the end of the journey, it's the journey itself. Fortunately, I can be proud to wear a Ranger hat or jacket. My teammate Scott Steil (congradulations Scott) got Ranger sposorship and is on Rangers prostaff. Scott has been working with other sponsors and potential sponsors as well. Not all people with stickers on their vehicles are just trying to look cool.

As far as:
“For one if you are off Daddy's bank account...forget it. Pre-fishing is tough when you gotta pay bills and hold a steady job. And pre-fishing IS the tournament which some people fail to realize its importance. I accept challenges, but to put myself, Mr 40hours a week barely makin it to the gas station to fill up the boat then baits and all the other stuff, against Mr get everything I want free from sponsors and companies who are willing to endorse me.....”

I work hard all summer long. Some weeks I put in over sixty-five hours in. Other weeks when I pre-fish two days I can still put in over forty hours in. I have earned everything that I have. I am proud of where I am. My Dad didn't given me one cent towards the college education that I received or my fishing expenses that have incurred. In fact my dad hasn’t talked to me in five years. The love and motivation from my mom in the past and my wife currently have gone a long ways. I am satisfied to say I am a tournament fisherman and I earn what I have whether I win or lose. Maybe you’re richening the pot for other anglers that have put in their time, or maybe you’re paying to learn something while you are on the water.

I am sorry for the long post and I didn’t mean to step on your toes. I'm just blowing off some steam. Being a co-angler for an event like this could be considered a cheap guide trip on the water. If you get a good partner you can have a real fun experience.

Mississippi walleye guide

Im with ya Flyingfish! At 23 yrs old, I just graduated from college, am a very reliable guide, have qualified for the RCL, and am fishing the Cabelas National Championship in Milford, Kansas, in June! I also just landed my first sponsorship and will be a member of the G-Loomis prostaff this year. All this, plus attending college full-time, and working 40 hrs a week! And Im having a blast. I was an avg fisherman until the day I fished my first local tourney. I learned more about my home water that day then I have ever learned in all my previous outings. Hey, its worth a try! If you like it, go with it, if you dont, thats fine too. Now youve heard from both sides if you havent fished a tourney before.

and then thers me,......Full time student, full time concrete worker, living on my own bank account, I would love to fish tourneys but lack the necessary time to be involved in such events. If I squeezed in tourneys there would no time for recreational fishing whatsoever. And friends and family would quickly become my acquaintences instead of close friends. Its just too serious for me, I can hear it now "hey matt, wanna go hit up lake x on saturday?" Matt replies: "No, but how would like to come prefish with me?" Not many friends would want to hear that. Gotta have your priorities straight. Whats more important to you? Alright,.... I'm really tired sorry for the blabbering

I think Flyingfish summed it up very well. I personally don't know any fisherman fishing out of there daddies pocket book. It is very easy to look at tournament fishing in a negative light. I encourage everyone to give it a try before you sit behind you computer and put down something you have never done. Get out and try it, atleast as a co-angler. This new RCL series is for weekend anglers and will give you a chance to fish with several different anglers and you don't have to put in the time it takes prefishing. A $75 guided fishing trip and a chance to get to see what tournament fishing is all about. It is for some and not for others.

If you have a passion for fishing and want to learn more about the sport in a relaxed atmosphere, check out the FishingMN LETS tournaments. Multi-species and you get to meet some great guys. Scott Steil

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!
    • mrpike1973
      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore  
    • Borch
      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.
