Tear 'em up, John. Hopefully, Reid wins some money too because he has a rather large debt to pay off right now - to me.

Well thank's for the comments. We had a great event ending up in 7th place. I have to say that this is the FIRST time I have ever said going out on the final day of a tournament that we were fishing for 2nd place! Moynagh and Thrun had them wired again. I give them credit as they have led the event for 5 straight days. the last time they were not leading was day one in 08 when we had a big bag and led on day one!

I am proud of our finish as we had to adapt and fish different areas and techniques each day.

The tent ride was awesome, want to be able to do it again next year.

Our pre fishing was the worst in 10 years of doing the event ( for bass) We did catch some big pike, big eyes and even a nice Muskie.

They hada few openeings and if you want fish the most fun event give it a try!

I was wondering if anyone would notice.

I caught a couple of eyes that had them, that one was by his head, about a golf ball sized thing very hard not sure what it was.

Moynagh must be part smallmouth(i'm sure a few tricks picked up in the FLW doesn't hurt either), that is impressive to say the least against that large of field of excellent smallmouth guys. All those canada guys that is all they do is fish those glacier lakes for smallies.

Ya, Chad said you guys had to do something different everyday to get them go to.

Hey Swampbuck, since you aren't fishing the Falls tourney how about sharing a few of your hotspots so a guy has a chance to cash a check in that one, since you stole all our hot spots in the Fort Tourney, hahahha

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
