Alot of fish on beds up there right now? What were the predominate patterns with that crazy weather had to be hard for the site fisherman.

Many of the fish are indeed on the beds, but there is a large number of fish that are pre-spawn and setting up, and a whole bunch of big females are post spawn. So depending on what your target was, you played out your pattern accordingly. Our biggest fish were out there in the wind, with the big waves, where at noon, it was still so cold you could see your breath.

Thanks! It was a great experience, very well run tournament, and as for Brandon, I couldn't have asked for a better pro, fantastic boat control skills!

Lets just hope they can keep it going next year with the GM Bankruptcy [PoorWordUsage] going on. I want to fish it again.

I believe the big fish was a 4.03 SM..... the usual. They all seem to peak at that 4 1/4 to 4 1/2 lb range. No shortage of nice fish out there though. Pretty good tournament considering the conditions.

BTW... 20.07? It appeared to me that that included about a 3 pound basket? Is that right? I know they did a tare on the basket for big fish, but the toal included the basket weight, did it not? I thought that was kind of strange. ( I think they did this for all teams) Just wondering?

The weights didn't include the basket. The scale is set to zero with basket.

What was the tourney limit? I want to say it was 6 fish. Is that combined weight for the pro and am?

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
