electrical tourney


Recommended Posts

I was just wondering if anybody was fishing the electrician tournament this weekend. I am not an electrician but have several friends that are. Now that all the perms are off let the best fishing begin. I must say though that it has been a great bite this season so far. this is my favorite time of year to be on the big pond (well maybe late fall trolling cranks) but a close second. hope to see some of you this weekend let me know if anyone is in the tourney and maybe we can chat over a cold one or two. we will have a group of about 15 or so and last year we did quit well in the tourney. good to see some people got some eyes on the last weekend. was to busy catching slabs down on the st. croix.

Fievel- Can you give me some info on this tourney? Location,time,etc. I'm a sparky and I have never heard of this tourney. Also who puts it on. Sounds like a good time on the big pond.

Thanks

Travis

I am a 110 sparky and will be heading up this weekend for the tournament. Me and six "guests"! If you see a grey sequoia with a trailer and 7 guys pile out of it, come over and say hi. The tournament is really informal, so if you know someone that is in the local, and they are going, you would me more than welcome to go. The way that it is run, almost everone goes home with a door prize. I will post next week and let you know how we fared.

good luck

ahh yes boone and coop one of a kind guys. i figured if you wroked with them you would know who iwas talking about. are u guys staying overnight. we are all heading up tomorrow morning and i will be hooking up with those crazy guys in the afternoon, and my guess i will see you around on saturday for a cold one. should be able to find cooper pretty easily he will be playing his dirty country cd all over the lake. i think they are all staying at hunters at least tomorrow night not sure about sat. my first name is dan not sure what they will be calling me this weekend but im sure they will come up with something. I fished the electrican tournament at devils last year with those guys as well, and go out to lake michigan with boone every summer on his boat.

No, we fished strait out of hunters. Almost 2 miles exactly.

Did you get your picture taken with boone and curt with a fish in your mouth?

I snapped a few photos at the end of the day one of which with boone curt and someone else all with fish, or parts of fish in their mouthes! tongue.gif

If you want pics let me know, I will email them to you.

      Heard that too. Also heard 38 was closed for a but north of rapids due to flooding.    I know the water really came up when I was up last week compared to when I was there in April.

      Someone said 4 inches in the past week, more expected this weekend. A few roads, including county roads that are asphalt ended up with sink holes. Lakes are the highest I've ever seen in the 30+ years coming to the area and now living here. Several people lost trees Tues night

      Dang Kettle  that bites. Great to hear fishing was good though.   How much rain you get up that way?

      50 in 6 hours is great. Boat issues really put a damper on a great day though. Hope you get it fixed quickly.

      Well boat finally got "fixed" and I picked it up Saturday. Last week worked 96 hrs so Sunday wanted the day to fish alone. Boat ran great out to the spot, 4 miles or so. Fishing was great boated over 50 walleye in about 6 hrs. Caught them lindy rigging, jigging and bobber fishing watching them on the live scope. Kept 6 between 18-20 inches. After using the trolling motor for the entire time fishing, go to fire up the tiller and it bogs down and dies. Another 4 hours running the trolling motor back to the launch. Fortunate it's under warranty. Bummer of a day but fishing was great landed one about 7 lbs too

      Terrible news for that area especially this being such a prime time for tourism. We can only hope for dryer days ahead so they can get back to normal.

      For those not in the area, the Lake Vermilion area got anywhere from 5-10" of rain the other day (depending on your source). The lake is rising rapidly affecting docks, shorelines, and cabins. The Littlefork River that runs through Cook overran its banks and flooded the town. It's not expected to crest until at least Saturday, which means things will get worse. Places such as the Comet, the Muni, the library, and many other businesses are flooded. Many roads in the area have been destroyed by flooding as well. There's lots of damage. Below are two quick links.   https://www.northernnewsnow.com/2024/06/20/floodwaters-inundate-city-cook-evacuation-location-open/   https://www.mprnews.org/story/2024/06/20/cleanup-continues-flooding-in-northeast-minnesota-southern-minnesota-rivers-rising

      Apparently just the motorized portage.   If you paddle you are good to go.

      The only way I could do it is running parallel to the shoreline on the "L", but with the wake from the boats and my rocky shoreline, the waves just bounce it around too much, even with bumpers tied off. My neighbors dock is recessed off the main channel, I'm going to sweet talk him into letting me dock it there.

      They closed the Trout Lake Portage down washed out.
