The night before the tournament....


Deitz is comfortable around the fire in his "South Park" Pajamas. Cute, Deitz!!


Matt was unfortunate to have sunburned feet during the event. Now Matt, are those "water bubbles" or are they " blisters"?? Can a Dr. please answer the question? LOL Hope your feet feel better after all the grief we gave you.... smirk.gif



Like always, it was an awesome time!!

MANY thanks to Ron for being an incredible host again and camping on his property. It was a great time!!

Can't wait for Rush... grin.gif

What a hoot!.. I think we could have caught more fish if the wind would have picked up! DAAAAAAAYYYYYYYUUUMMMMMM it was windy!

And nobody can mess with the super fly awesomo 4000 south park PJ's... They are the bomb!

And believe it or not.. matts feet looked worse in person! tongue.gif

Yes, they looked (and still look) much worse in person smile.gif Talk about a pain-in-the-foot!! grin.gif Not to worry, my feet are both just one big blister now (or are they water bubbles? grin.gif). The swelling has gone away, but the blisters just keeping getting bigger...

Deitz's pj's were most definitely cute! They really went well with the white viser grin.gif Actually I can't say too much, I was a big fan of zubas...

Some of the weights brought in were very impressive, no doubt about that. Some nice walleyes and panfish! The big bass were tough to come by, a lot of 1-2 pound fish, but finding any real hogs was tough. We ended up spending the entire day in one bay that was out of the wind. We ventured out onto the mainlake to see if we could hit one of the spots we did well on during pre-fishing but the wind was just pounding that area and it made fishing it very tough. So, back to our bay we went. That bay produced all day though. Kudos to those who found the walleyes, it paid off that's for sure.

This weekend was a lot of fun and it's always a pleasure hanging out with all of you.

Thank's to Ron for being such an excellent host! From the second we arrived to the time we left, Ron made it a very worthwhile experience! Ron, you're a class-act dude!

See everyone at Rush!!!

Good Fishin,

Matt Johnson

It there was just a little more wind I think we could have pulled it out. laugh.gif I never put the electric trolling motor in the water. Controlled drift with a wind sock in the wind for us. wink.gif

Very impressive catches by everyone. Ny brother though we had a good chance and I told him, "keep fishing! We need a couple more."

Turns out I was right.

See ya on Rush!

I loved every second of the wind and clouds. grin.gif

The T-storms, however, were not necessary. Good thing Matt and Brian left when their fishing rods started buzzin!! shocked.gif

34 lbs of fish in 8 hours of fishing??!!?? Wow, that is crazy, on top of that, the wind made it tough to fish half of the lake. That was very impressive. A lot of good numbers came in. That was a great lake selection for the tournament. I think a good time was had by all. I can't wait for the Rush lake event!

Yeah, when I lifted the graphite rod above my head and it started buzzing, that's when I realized it was time to head back to weigh-in a few minutes early grin.gif

Good Fishin,

34lbs of fish is very good. I was just happy we caught some fish on this event as I was embarrassed after the Whitefish event. Hopefully we can keep improving as we go. Sorry I wasn't able to make it to the campsite for a bit to meet everyone. I am sure the Rush Lake event will be different. See you then.

I just hope Glenn and Belinda return for the next 2 events so we can see if they know how to fish more lakes than Ida. grin.gif

JJA, these events are meant to not only compete, but I can say we are also happy to share information to help others out and teach. You and Nik made a nice improvement and I was glad to see that.

It was nice talking with you on Friday. I always enjoying stopping in your store, even though it's only been a couple times smile.gif I can tell you love what you do! Enjoy the rest of the summer and I'm sure we'll meet up again...

Good Fishin,

Matt Johnson

What a great time!! The campfire party is always the best part, someone always does something to spark some good conversation, like wear weirdo PJ's or say quotes like "Those aren't blisters their water bubbles" lol.

J/K guys, we need fuel for the fires:)

Or maybe they feed their wallets to the water gods, heh

What a pain, I've been at like 5 different government offfices so far this week, and still have more to do!!!!

See you all at rush.

      I have a Weboost cellular amplifier at Wakemup Bay. It increases the signal from 1 bar or less to 3-4 bars BUT there is more to the story than bars. For data (like streaming video) I get faster data speeds WITHOUT using my booster. The reason as I understand it is that cellular data transmits and receives on multiple channels simultaneously (its called Multi-In-Multi-Out or MIMO.) Most boosters only amplify a single channel at a time. While the phone shows a good signal from the booster it can actually reduce the data speeds that are available with MIMO transmissions. A booster can improve your voice communications while diminishing your data speeds. You might want to look at the Mobile Internet Resource Center on YouTube for a better explanation.

      Where are the opener fish pictures?

      All of us who couldn't be there for opener would love to hear how the fishing was....😉

      48 by the trout lake portage today

      57 in Black Bay and 44 in Niles Bay today.  The lake is changing by the day and the fishing reflects it.

      So sorry, wish I could boat over to help. I think we will wait an extra week to head north.  Prayers for a good resolution.  
    • Muskies
      Good morning Mtnman. Yes, the whole rainy lake watershed is under a flood warning. Water is as high as it was back in 2014. Forecast is that is should peak around May 20. All the ice went out last week with all the wind and rain we had. My dock didn’t make it though. Ice blew in and lift the whole thing, crib and all. Mother Nature…adds another project once the water is warm enough to work in. This week looks a little drier…I hope! Safe travels when you do head North.
    • Coleman
      The water was over 22 at the very south end of Mud and the overflow pond. I took that route to get to the cabin, I just moved the signs and drove through, saw a couple carp sunbathing on the warm road. 😂
