Thinking about having a little get together tourney on Calhoun on September 27th or October 4th. Anyone interested?

My calendar says a baptism the 27th, and October is all muskie all the time. Any bass that time of year are purely accidental.

Yeah, just can't use the big motor. Would help even the playing field for ones that don't have the 200+hp motors.

so you can take your bass boat out there and just keep the motor up and just power around with the electric then--weigh in would be great to see!

Is there going to be any money on the line??

One of the funniest moments I've had while canoeing on Calhoun was passing a stripper glitter boat towing another stripper glitter boat that ran out of juice. 400 hp was no match for those big 'ol pipes coming out of my shirt sleves. laugh

Put me down as a definite maybe for the 27th.

I don't have a live well so I'm out - I've never fished it, but I know I'd stick close to the walking path just for the views!

Is it strictly calhoun only or the whole chain of lakes? Will parking be an issue? I'm interested

I fished it for the first time this AM. Interesting and very clear lake, did ok lots of smaller 12-14" fish and one chunky 19". Mainly tossed heavy jigs and dropshots on the milfoil edges. The 'scenery' was pretty nice but it might not be as nice later in the fall...

I could see parking being a problem but if you get an early start there should be sufficient parking on the streets.

Livewell in my boat isnt big enough for a limit.

Yeah but if you have a 75lb electric you'll still be moving around the lake twice as fast as someone with a 40lb. It'd just be a slow motion race to the hot spots.

I have never fished Calhoun before, but it sounds fun... Nice way to spend a saturday anyways... We should try and get some plaques made up of something fo bragging rights! (Not really sure how much plaques cost, just an idea)

Whole chain, but we will go out of Calhoun. Parking should be ok in October.

Count me in if it is the Oct4th.......Years ago they used to have a Aquatennial Tourney there and one well known local angler showed up one year with a john boat with 6 batteries.

Would it be a team tourney?

Shotgun start?

Could have flights based on boat power.....Paddles and oars go out first......40lb thrust and lower next 75lbs or less next....anything over 75lbs last flight.....

I have also heard rumors of a certin local guy that put a 202lb engine mount Minnkota on the boat and could just about pull a skier. Might be the same deal.

    • The new ones don't stay in place very well either. I don't think you would want to put your weight on one either but they work for what they are. Now I kind of seem to remember seeing them at their shop, one the reasons they were redoing them was because enough air didn't go thru them too well.  I think a product right between these two designs would be perfect.Thanks for the reply, 
    • If this happens I will move to Canada but not for the healthcare, just the fishing. Any more bailouts and I riot, we all should, I don't care what they are for.
    • Nah, you and your glorious leader have already shown that you are intimidated by men in tights.
    • Well despite our so so play that last couple of weeks we are still doing pretty well. Really wish we could have closed out that game against Vancouver this road trip but its a long season and we will win/lose games that should have gone the other way many times. Wild are currently sitting 6th in the conference, we have the best goal differential in the west (+16) and 4 games in hand on the two teams behind us. Read somewhere our advanced stats are good too. Dubs is playing amazing, our D is alwasy solid. Scoring is still somewhat of a issue but we are sitting middle of the pack in the NHL so as long as the D holds we should be ok.
    • Those are the 1st gen covers. They done stay in place, at all. Definitely not child or dog proof. I bought the new honeycomb version at the show and they seem way better. 
    • Start one? Bahahahahahaha!
    • Well the teriyaki sticks are very good, I made them to Curlys recipe but with powdered milk (RH1) and more water to compensate. Then I made the pepper sticks but instead of water I used Grainbelt Nordeast, close to three bottles for a ten pound batch. I also added powdered milk, minced garlic from a jar and mustard seed.  What a great flavor! These mixes are proving to be tasty.    I'm smoking 3 loins of canadian bacon on Saturday.    Come on ice!
    • You guys need to start an HSO drama club..    
    • Just hold the bottom of the ducer to your ear with the unit on and if you hear it clicking it's good. If not it's junk.
    • Where did you get those heavy duty hole cover with the holes in them? I just checked their site and don't see them. I might have to stop over at their office today.
