They have being putting this on for I think 6 years now it is a great time there are great give aways and awesome silent auction items. I would say 80 to 90% of the people that go are all bass fishermen, and it is for a great cause.

Fundraiser for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

“Beer Bash!”

Saturday, April 14


Farmington American Legion

Located ¼ mile North of Hwy 50 on Hwy 3

East side of Downtown Farmington

St. Jude is the nation’s premier research center for catastrophic childhood diseases. When St. Jude first opened in 1962, a child with leukemia had virtually no chance for survival. Today, thanks to the research at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 90% of children with the most common form of leukemia can be cured. It treats children without regard to race, religion, creed or ability to pay. St. Jude covers all costs not covered by insurance. Families without insurance are never asked to pay. St. Jude relies almost solely on public donations; fund raising efforts like the Dick Hiley/St. Jude Bass Invitational are vital to the success of the hospital.

The Team of Trent Soberg of Lakeville and Keith Larson of Farmington are fishing the Dick Hiley/St. Jude Bass Invitational on May 5-6. All proceeds will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. On behalf of St. Jude, Trent Soberg and Keith Larson, Thank You for supporting this cause.

$10.00 Donation

Free Beer

There will be Raffle and Silent Auction items. Remember all proceeds go to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

*Tickets sold at door or in advance at Farmington American Legion

Wished I would have known about this sooner. I live in Farmington and St. Jude is a customer of my company. We do a lot of work with them.

My brother and them do it every year right around the same time so they will be doing it again next year I think they raised just over $5,000.

      We did well Thursday, Friday and Saturday out front of Pine just out of the gap in 19ft. Got on the lake just fine Saturday....was actually better than the previous two days as far as rough water is concerned I thought.

      I saw the guy who bought our cabin, Ryan Aker, came in 4th. A couple of 7lb fish and i thought i saw a team with a 10lb fish also. Shhhhhh, the shallow is a secret. We fish quite often in 5' or less, Often watching the guides out on the sandy flats from a far

      Last year my family and I were just landing our boat off the hoodoo point access and someone from here recognized my pike master boat and daughter from pictures i shared the year before. He suggested going to some underwater rock formation north of Ely island where he said he did well with jigging raps, which I just so happened to obtain a collection of over the past year or so. We marked a ton of fish in the 26' depth range but could not get those to bite for our life and ended up resorting to old tactics much shallower. I have watched videos of Linders and other anglers doing well with them but have yet to have that same luck. Had a giant on Minnetonka on a jigging rap but ended up getting off before showing itself. So, ill strongly second this on making the jigging rap work this year. On another note these spot lock and conture following features coming out with the new trolling motors is a true game changer. We pulled of on a family favorite spot on a windy day and had a hard time staying on position with my dads old trolling motor. A guy pulled up and had no problem staying were we wanted to be, going to have to be one of the upgrades on the next boat.

      Over the winter, my family acquired some snorkel gear. I know that Vermilion isn't a great lake for clarity, and certainly my bay is at the bottom of the list. However, are there areas of the lake that have decent clarity?

      Welcome to the forum Dave38.  More then likely the tab like the others have said. Did you do anything to the boat to change the weight around like add a live well or battery in different spots?  Is it a wheel or tiller?

      Any sense to when the walleye tournament results will be posted? Always enjoy reading the names and weights. Aside from Saturday morning, we did very well Thursday-Sunday. LOTS of tiny walleyes in the Frazer/Smart's Bay area, but did manage plenty of keeper fish in 22-35 feet with Lindy's/Jigs and rainbows

      +1 on the trim tab being the issue.
    • PRO-V
      Did you do anything to the lower unit? Trim tab might need adjusting.
