MN Bassmaster Weekend Series Links

I have 3 non-boater buddies signing up for the Weekend Series, so if there are any boaters looking for links, let me know

When you link, it guarantees both anglers a spot incase its full or if there is an uneven amount of boaters or non-boaters. IF they get too many non-boater, unlinked non-boaters can be bumped from tournament

If too many boaters, non-linked boaters will be paired together in a boater/boater draw

Its a 5 tournament series, June - Sept, Le Homme Dieu, Whitefish, Pokegama, Vermillion & Tonka

I am pretty sure the Tonka tournement is the TOC and you have to "qualify" for it. Not real tough to do as you only need 100 points so all you really need to do is show up for two tournements because you get 50 points for showing up. It is a really fun series and I would reccomend it. Due to circumstances beyond my control I will not be fishing the whole series this year but will try and make 2 so I can fish the tonka event. If you finish well enough you gett a shot at nationals and the winner gets a spot in the Big Show, The Bassmaster Classic.

Also as a freindly reminder to any non-boaters please remember that it is customary to share expenses for gas and oil with your boater. With oil prices where they are at this is something that should be taken into account. Good Fishing!!

What do you guys think a fair amount is for gas for the boater/pro. $20.00 used to be fair, but with gas approaching $4.00 should it be $40.00, or more? Does it depend on how far you run, or what? I have never fished as a non-boater, don't know if I would expect it from an amatuer partner or not. I am sure it would be nice to help cover expenses for the day. Are you fishing for yourself in these or is it a shared weight? Does the Co get any TM time? I have read a fair amount of posts about this topic on other boards, opinions vary.

In club tournaments, non-boaters often can get TM time, but in BFL's & Weekend Series tourneys, the Co can only run TM in emergency situations

I have fished a few tournaments as a Co-Angler, I have almost always offered some money to my boater except for a few times. The boater needs to be friendly and make the day fun, if they aren't friendly or just rude then I’m not paying them anything, cool That’s just my opinion. If the boater looks out for you and helps you catch fish then make sure you tell him and make sure you pay for any items he gives you.

I have giving a guy $70 dollars before for helping me catch fish. I won the tournament that day and if he didn’t help me I would have never won it. The boater is always going to watch to make sure he catches fish first and that understand able!!! If you run a lot I would give him more then if you didn’t, Just pay something, anything helps!!! grin

Just in our local small club tourneys the Non-boater pays 20.00 to the partner just for puling the rig to wherever we happen to be fishing that day.. We won't ever go over 20.00 becuz of the facts our club is laid back and take a have fun approach to things.. im my opinion though 40.00 isn't asking too much because of just what it costs to pull the rigs nowdays,not even figuring in boating time or expenses on the vehicles

    • Keep an eye on those trees. They tend to jump in the way when your not looking.    won't be the same without ya. 
    • Truth be told it was the outstate money that originally built the metro into what it is. Without that funding St Paul would be nothing more than St Peter is today. 
    • Can't argue with the last part
    • I wonder if a person gets an extended warranty if that will help?  I have a 2011 with 5.3 silverado and all is good today so I'm thinking og looking into that.
    • My last kayak adventure was less than stellar wound up in the drink. And it was a cold drink at that. A very memorable paddle up to that point. It was the first time I had ever been on the water with snow on everything. It was awesome.    Alas, my 'yaks are all put up for the season now. Waiting for next years adventures to begin. 
    • I am toying with the idea of doing a little calling this weekend. The moon is nice and dark, so the first and last few minutes  of daylight might make something happen. It all depends on what I stumble into for sign. The majority of the deer hunters have been done for a while, so the free meals are going to be getting harder to come by. 
    • The fans I was talking about are 12 volt and only 1" deep. Putting them under the heater might not do the job because the heat from heater rises. If you have room in the lower cabinet on your heater you could mount one fan inside and blow the heat out the grill on the front of the heater.
    • I thought last night's game was surprisingly entertaining considering how low scoring it was for most of it. Not sure if people outside of MN and TX would agree. Rudolph dropping that ball in the end zone was devastating - IMO it was a bigger play than the final one. As much as I hate to see us continue to lose, I honestly have never seen a team lose so many starters at key positions and still be competitive. Says a lot about our coaching, depth, and players buying in.   Will be interesting to see what we can do with our OL without having a 1st rd pick this off season. As others have said, it wouldn't be a bad strategy to use every draft pick we have on the linemen.      
    • Yes. Unlike you I have a job and a life.   I'll just say that whatever it's about you are right because that's the only thing I could ever say that you would possibly agree with me on. I won't get in the way of your libertarian fantasies.
