Mike Bruno and Mike Metzger (sp?) won with 44.17 pounds. That over a four pound average. Nice work guys! The conditions were tough to say the least.

Good job Mike and Mike. I've known Mike Metzger since he was 15. He was a good fisherman then, and he is a real good fisherman now.

for sure congrats to mike and mike. those were two monster sacks. it is amazing the size of the fish coming out the centers the last couple of years. i wonder if it has to do with the foil or better understanding of the fish or the shallow water?

how did you do RossT?

we ended up 11th for the third straight year.

N/S Centre was good during an aba that I fished out there this year too, 19lbs won it. I think part of it is that it didn't see much pressure this summer with the lower water levels... who knows though.

We finished a depressing 15th... it's not your day when you break 50lb. braid twice and see the fish jumping trying to throw your bait. It was like rubbing salt into an already painful wound.

I would switch braids asap if that were the case.

RossT, i was gonna stop and say hi, but was pretty [PoorWordUsage] how the tourney went as well. i also gotta give it up to the original spiderwire for slop fishing i have never had a problem with it and casts just fine for the $.

    • Thanks for the link.
    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
