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?

    • They are drumming like crazy now. In fact, I even hear them at night. My wife said when she was a teenager growing up in rural Wisconsin, she always thought that drumming sound was the nearby powerstation.    
    • Lilac blooms are here, just haven't opened. Hearing some reports of good finds in the Houston and Lewiston areas of MN. I checked some new public areas today on the MN side. Could be decent later but too cold and wet right now. Will check some early season spots tomorrow but won't hope for much with the cold weather.
    • Nice!  Must have seemed forever waiting.
    • 6 months later and he is home
    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
