Metro LETS - Clearwater Lake Results

Recommended Posts

Thanks much to B.J.'s Resort on Clearwater Lake for hosting tournament headquarters this year for our event! If you are ever in the area, they have some great tips on where to fish, maps, tackle, bait, rentals, etc. Look them up, they are on the west end of the lake (just North of the Lake Augusta channel).

Thanks again to Catch'N tackle and T.J.'s Tackle for the tackle prizes.

CONGRATS to team Jighead for their 1st place finish. You guys are doing something right for sure! They walked away with 1st place and a lifetime supply of Berkley Power worms from Catch'N tackle (maybe not life-time, but a huge pack), along with (2) $25 gift certificates for Catch'N tackle.

Congrats to Catch'N and Bob'N Stovetop for 2nd and 3rd place finishes. 2nd went to team Catch'N, and came down to the wire (broken via tie-breaker). Third went to Bob'N Stovetop with the only walleye and "Triple Play" for the day.

Congratulations to Crystal Connection, who came away with 4th place and a couple of great tackle packs from T.J.'s Tackle (including a wide assortment of Case Plastic baits).

This was by far the closest event we've had in the Metro series. All teams brought in nice fish and there wasn't a lot of weight separating the entire field. 1st place went down to a tie-breaker. Big fish was a 3 way tie. Congrats to everyone for finding some great fish. We easily broke the all time weight record for a Metro LETS event (and it wasn't from just the top couple teams, all teams weighed in nice baskets of fish).

The total weights for Clearwater are 214.4 lbs. of fish and 17.9 lbs. per active team (shattering the all time Metro record at Madison of 162.4 lbs. and 13.5 lbs. per active team).

Duhhhh....yea, I see it now.

It was good, a lot of surprises and a lot of fish on 2 fairly small lake (1 was 250 acres!)

I'm sure Paul will post soon

A close one smile.gif We had a lot of fun, the weather was awesome the whole weekend and the panfish sure were poppin'!! I thought that 30 pounds was going to be needed to win this one, but the larger bass were hard to find and the pike were pretty small as well. A three-way tie for big fish and a tie for first place, made things interesting at the end.

A special thanks to Mike for allowing some of us to stay at his place saturday night, you were a very good host, much appreciated. smile.gif

Here are a few pics from the weekend...

Actually Scott/Andy (taxman) may have had a 4 lb. bass now that I think about it. I know Chris/Andy and our 4 lb. fish were pike.

Well, we had a rather dissapointing finish, but a fun day despite boat troubles(I swear it'll be all fixed by the next one!) We musta caught at least 20 bass during the day, but most were only 12-14 inches long with the exception of our 3 that went 2lbs or so. Pike were elusive for us, although I did catch a big ugly bowfiun fishing for them! Good weights for just about everyone, I look forward to the next event!

    • We saw some good bucks this weekend but couldn't quite seal the deal on any of them...my son smoked his second one with the ML this afternoon after talking me in to going out when we should have been packing to leave for home...(: found a big deadhead this morning too...deer were super spooky but saw plenty...time to pack all the hunting gear away and focus on ice!! 
    • I know, you hear about them everyday in the News burning and terrorizing the good atheist folks of Belle Plaine MN.
    • Are the houses built on an order basis only?   How long did your build take from order to delivery?
    • The one I installed in my previous house was the same way. Like Tom said, be sure to watch the humidity levels. When they get too high you can start to get mold growth. I always watched the windows. When they'd start to get a lot of condensation on them I'd turn it down.   Be sure to check the filter at least once a year. I lived in town and still had to replace the filter every year because of buildup on the filter. When it would get clogged the water would pretty much run straight down to the drain in the bottom. 
    • Looks different to me, or probably just the light and shade difference.
    • I still planned to shoot my ML some, even not going hunting.  Pretty much out of primers and getting low on white hots so I swung into the Baxter FF on my way to Winnie for the weekend. They were completely out of primers and had just gotten restocked that day with propellants.  The counter guy said they went through a ton of ML supplies this year, owing the surge to scopes being allowed.  I bought some Buckhorn to try out and will have to get primers later. Anyone with a last day story to tell?
    • i think those jackknife couches are 72 inches but not positive, will check on that.  The back dinette bed would be almost 8 feet wide. Here are some more pics of the furnace, batteries, and hydraulic system under the couch.  Also the Biffy and closet in the front, the stereo system with Bluetooth, some USB charging ports next to it, cabinet for the satellite receiver with all connections tucked inside.  Pic of the outside 30 amp generator plug in and propane tanks.  Has lights over the tanks and entry door.  You can connect whatever you want to the tv, so yes a water camera would work on that.  Hoping to get on the ice next weekend!!  Good luck to all...
    • Meh, I can protect myself just fine with or without a $1000 rifle. My $100 Hi-Point .45 will make you just as dead as that AR. It's more than likely one of those crazy arse Christians that I need to protect myself from.
    • Yea, well down in Belle Plaine you got all those gun toting Christians to protect your ars!
