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

    • Well our lilacs were just starting to bud out yesterday and I was thinking we should go take a peek today. Unfortunately we got 2 inches of snow overnight and it's still coming down! I'm pretty sure Hubbard county will have to wait at least a week to ten days with the temps forecast.
    • Sorry...no excuses BB...the better team did win....4-1. Lucky for the Wild that Statsny was not playing from the start or it woukd have been a sweep. Love the fact that the national hockey gurus are ripping the Wild right now..read Souhans article pretty much what I've been saying. http://m.startribune.com/wild-again-not-good-enough-when-it-matters/420167633/ While Chicago is telling it like it is...the Wild are sending the wrong message...and Chicago has 3 cups in recent past....6 overall...pretty obvious which organization is trying to win the cup every year and which one is happy just "selling tickets".
    • Got off to a late start, but was able to get to the lower river at 6 AM. Frost covered the ground, as temps were barely above freezing. I could hear turkeys gobbling as I walked through the field. Once I made it to the wooded river valley, the sound of grouse drumming echoed through the woods. Eagles and ospreys continually flew over my head throughout he morning. The water was mabye a couple inches high, and somewhat cloudy, but was noticeably clearing as the morning progressed. 8 o'clock seemed to be the magic hour, as that's when I caught most of my 13 brown trout. Biggest was 16 inches, and had a few swipes from some dandies as well. Beautiful morning to be on the river!
    • So i have experimented with a bunch of brands to see which ones walk the best .... of coarse it depends on fisherman, rod & line being used.   7"2" Cabelas bass rod medium heavy tourney rod,  power pro 45# ...here is the order of best walking frog that worked for me off the dock.   1.  Terminator frog 2.  Bobby's perfect frog (pretty close to terminator) by snag Proof 3.  Spro frog (ok) 4.  KVD frog  (took some work) 5.  Booya pad crasher (teririble)   These are the ones i own ... terminator and snag proof where effortless!!!    
    • Running and gunning!   Congrats!
    • Nice!  WTG!
    • I've got a bunch of Humminbird Snapshots of my DI and SI stuff. Many people pay for the technology and don't know what they are looking for. Study these shots and tell me what you think you see.
