LETS Whitefish Chain results


Recommended Posts

Congrats goes to Tom and Deitz for a nice 1st place finish, Brad and Charlie for 2nd place and Paul and Kevin for 3rd place! Way to go all.

It was a relatively tough bite on the chain, and the heavy rain on Saturday afternoon hampered a lot of teams' pre-fishing time.

1. Tom/Deitz - 25.0 lbs (6 B, 3 NP, 10 G)

2. Brad/Charlie - 22 lbs (6 B, 2 NP, 5 C, 6 G, 2 P)

3. Paul/Kevin- 21.9 lbs (6 B, 3 NP,3 G, 2 C)

4. CD/PP - 20.7 lbs (6 B, 10 G, 2 C)

5. Ron/Steve - 20.2 lbs (4 B, 3 NP, 4 G, 5 C)

6. Borch - 17.9 lbs (3 B, 3 NP, 1 W)

7. BDR/Matt - 14.7 lbs (6 B, 2 NP, 5 C, 2 G)

8. Bushwacker- 7.0 lbs (2 P, 5 G)

9. Jon/Nick - 2.1 lbs (2 B)

See you all at the next event on Lake Ida in 3 weeks!

I had a great time up on Whitefish with all of you! Those were truly some impressive smallies that Tom and Deitz brought in! Wow! Great fish guys! The crappies Brad and Charlie brought in were very nice as well. We found the bass and pike, no doubt about that, but finding a pike that went over 20 inches and a bass over 2 pounds seemed to be tough. I don't think I've ever caught more pike in one day in my entire life, but the norm seemed to be 14-18 inches, just little ones. Still a lot of fun though. Some very impressive weights brought in given the conditions and it seemed like everyone caught fish and had a good time. I even heard a little something about one of the teams going duck hunting!?!? wink.gifgrin.gif I wish I could have seen that one.

There were some very impressive weights put up and some very nice fish. Like Matt said, we caught a ton of fish and had non-stop action the whole time, but catching a bass over 12" was just not happening. After 15 10"ers a guy get a little frusterated. Hopefully the weather cooperates a little better for the Ida tournament and we can actually prefish and get a chance hang out and actually get to know everyone before the actual start of the tournament. I'm heading out in ten minutes to try to take out my small fish frusterations on a muskie or two grin.gif

It was definitely a lot of fun!

If I had been anything other than a net man for my partner we might have done a bit better. But that's how it goes laugh.gif

Definitely some impressive catches by most of the teams. Especially when you figure in the unstable weather we were dealing with. I'll see you all at Ida.

See you in a few weeks!

What a blast this weekend, my gear is all laying out right now drying out smile.gifWas nice to meet some new people, and to Nick/Jon and others that didn't get to the campsite, i hope you can for Ida.

I believe Ron was generous enough (again) to offer up some land he bought for us all to camp on. If you have any questions as to where and when I'm sure you can get that info here. Then you'll know why the logo is "we have more fun" smile.gif

See ya all in 3 weeks

It was a tough bite for sure.

On the way back to weigh-in I seriously thought we would get it handed to us, I had no idea we had that much weight.

We tried all of my go-to spots and luckilly we eek'ed out a W. I'm pretty sure Deitz had a good time for never being on the lake before, how was the guided fishing there buddy?...LOL grin.gif

It was great to meet all the new guys, even though I crashed out early on Saturday night. I'm going to enjoy this win at least until Ida where I fully expect Ron and Steve to show us how it's all done....and I expect Chuck to get back in the top 3...LOL...how long has it been since THAT happened? Finishing out of the top 3?

XXX... LOL grin.gif

Yeah Deitz, I felt bad for you so I let you win those last 3 to get ahead grin.gif There were too many FMer's watching and I didn't want them to see you get beat by the young guy wink.gif Ok, all joking aside, that was a lot fun, some serious competition and it was great to get a chance to BS with you a little again. However, I think there will be a rematch in the near future...

Tom,

I think you're too hard on yourself, if I would have brought in three monster smallies and the panfish that the two of you caught I would have been feeling pretty good. If I wouldn't have known better, I would have thought those were Gull smallies grin.gifwink.gif Just kidding. Nice fish man! And it was nice sitting down for a bite to eat with you afterwards as well...

BDR and I are already planning our strategy for Ida... We have two highly trained spies who have been told to follow a black Skeeter and a blue Skeeter, so if any of you have boats like that don't worry about the people down the shoreline with binoculars, they are only bird watching grin.gif

Good Fishin,

Matt Johnson

Matt, you won't find the stealth, and don't even try to keep up. LOL grin.gif

Tom, all we needed was the northerns. I had them pegged pre-fishing, I did. That's fishing!! Oh, and don't make me remind you of Pokegama. Yes, we have our bad days like everyone else. smirk.gif

Even having Paul and Kevin follow us from miles behind to the exact same location was interesting too. That reminds me, don't we have rules about fishing so many yards apart? I think 15 yards is too close for comfort. Ah, consider that your birthday gift buddy (Happy Birthday BTW). LMAO!! At least you guys witnessed Aaron blast a cast on a crankbait about 40 yards and I hear a "OH NO!!" and SPLASH!!! A drake Mallard flew into his crankbait in mid-air, mallard crashed to the water, the #1 all time favorite, discontinued lure, was lost on the 1st cast when the line broke somehow from the duck. Cripes. crazy.gif Duck flew away unharmed and we still wonder what happened. confused.gif

Deitz, glad you got a taste of victory with the Herminator. Just hope he can keep it up when I am oh, so, lucky in my first bass tourney with the guy. ooo.gif ]

It was a great time guys, hope the fun continues!!!

Hey Chuck that was our spot! It kinda all makes sense now, I woke up and found a empty PBR right next to Pauls Lowrence 330....hmmm..... who drinks PBR confused.gif

LOL Chuck!

This was the only tournament on the schedule this year that I was really comfortable with. I've never been on Ida, and it's been 6 years since I've been on Rush. Whitefish is like that, you think you have em pegged and poof...no fishies no where.

Sheepie....yea, he must have taken my idea about downloading the trail onto an empty MMC...whoooohahahaha

Matt, there are no smallies in Gull smirk.gif...lol, actually there are a few, but very few and far between....why do you think it took so long for me to get bait Saturday night?...LOL...j/k

I know what you mean. I haven't fished any of the lakes on this years schedule. Although that's one of the draws for me. Getting to fish some new water.

As far as the time it took you to get those redtails. I figured that most of the baitshops you found had "alive" redtails. We all know how you feel fishing with "alive" bait. tongue.gif

Well we didn't have the best luck but we had fun. It was our first event ever and I have already been counting the days to the next one. I hope to do better on Ida which should not be hard to do as we only caught 2 legal fish. Great job to the top 3 teams, I was impressed that you found such nice fish. I guess we need to do a bit more prefishing on Ida.

Have a good one!

Tom,

I just figured you stopped at Sugar Daddy's for a couple hours Saturday night grin.gif I guess I was wrong... wink.gif

I'm looking forward to Ida as well, another new body of water for BDR and me and it'll be like another mini-vacation! smile.gif

Good Fishin,

Matt Johnson

Looks like you guys had another great LETS event - lets see more pictures!! I want to make sure those smallies weren't the 12.5-13" fish GullGuide only seems to catch - hee hee. Just messin with ya bud - congrats on the 1st place finish!

CD - what the hey - still a little bad luck left over from Pokeg or what??

Seriously guys - I sure wish I was able to fish the league this year. I have had a great time the last three years and have learned lots and have made some great friends.

Perhaps I will get Chris up here and get in for the Mystery event. It would only be fair to give you guys a chance at a little of your money from last year...

Talk to ya later...

      First open water fishing this morning. Planed to go to Clearwater but water was 6 inches over docks. Drove over to Sylvia/Twin and access was great. Water very clear, could see bottom in more than 12 ft.  Caught several sunfish and bass. 2 northerns and a crappie. Most went back including a 9.5 in male sunny. Beautiful fish. Most caught in less than 3 ft water.  Temp was 61.

      We are high up on the hill so no worry of water damage, but our electrical box wasn't too far from the rising lake water. I hope that issue doesn't start hitting others as well!

      I was up for opening weekend, but only fished Saturday morning. I had a limit by 6:30 so headed back to the cabin to get work done. In about an hour I lost 2 on the way to the boat, boated a 13" that I threw back, and kept a 14, 15, 16, 17. Nice size eaters. Jig and minnow in 15-20 FOW.  Water temps where I was fishing was 41.    I have damage to 2 docks and several trees down. I hope this water level goes down soon! Good luck everyone.

      Welcome to the forum. Buying clothing and gear for outdoor activities is part of the fun! 🙂
    • markwell2003
      I'm willing to buy this white shirt. It will look awesome with the juicewrld pants.

      Opener was decent on Saturday and absolutely on fire Sunday. 9 eyes, three over 25 in, one at 28.5. A bunch of largemouths, some crappie and perch and a TON of bullhead. One of those weekends where your hands start to hurt.       
    • harrylynn64
      I'm quite happy since I'm going fishing with a pal for the first time in a long time. We plan to purchase some clothing for it, such as exclusive hoodies.
    • jparrucci
      The majority of docks can't be put it. Water is over the top of pretty much every permanent dock.  Very few docks are in. 
    • cm012419
      Crappies are all up shallow in the south metro. Caught this one shore fishing with a beetle spin from a more secluded lake without much access. All of the crappies were between 7-9 inches with this 11.5" being the exception
