Metro Tourney Results

7 posts in this topic

Slow is the word, sounds like 11 fish enetered out of around 500 anglers. Much like we've heard and seen this week, fish moving but not a lot of eaters. Good news it may dial down the pressure on some lakes from non-metro guys. Last year drew a lot of attention to Eagle lake.

So....that means it's time for more bass fishing until things get going!

I'll post the results once they are up.

I was out fishing for the tourney, my partner and I moved 10 fish. 2 of them were gonna eat (mouths open followed through 3-4 figure 8's and nipping at the lures) but tough boat control thanks to the wind and some human error spooked them. Very frustrating to see the results and know we could've won it had those two gotten hooked! <gah>

you can look more at mnmuskietournaments dot com and they should tell you the rules and etc.

I've seen that youd be given a number tag and you hold that tag on the day you are fishing in the tournament and take a picture holding the # tag with the fish you caught, have a witness, measure the fish and picture of the measurement. Something like that.

Do you think the water has not warmed up enough for the Muskies to be real active yet, or does all of the rain factor in to their behavior?

Water temp is huge. Speeds up their metabolism and makes them eat more. We are behind a few weeks I think.

    • Moved my fan today  cut heat up time in half very noticeable improvement 
    • Well, she's still right, you know..
    • Went out pheasant hunting today and ran into a trapper setting 330s along a creek for beaver .  I'm not much into trapping but know how these things work, and after having a civilized conversation with him his were all in the water and he let know where they were located so at least the pooch wouldn't get his leg caught in it. don't feel bad, he hasn't caught much either . 
    • That may be, but it sounds a lot like "I didn't get a job" butthurt.  That grifter would be singing the praises of Trump's genius if she was on the payroll.   Eh, why not?  When they aren't taking credit for things they had nothing to do with, they are taking blame for things they had nothing to do with. Pence is still the governor of Indiana
    • sounds like from animals that eat meat. 
    • Huh?  Sorry,  I should have known better.
    • Great idea, have you looked into what it would take? 
    • I think what fish meant was it might not hurt to allow more than 60 days for a season in states like MN.   When the birds are late we can still have a chance at the northern birds.  If freeze up and the flights are early, the longer season won't matter.  There won't be much if anything to shoot.   I get what you're saying about lengthening the gap, but that's a roll of the dice since we have little chance of knowing when freeze up will get those late birds moving.  How long do you make the gap?   After a year in my new area of the state I can adjust my expectations and chase more wisely next year.  This year I was anticipating much better.  I think that's the worst part - the big push being the big let down.
    • Wool socks are a must, they insulate even if wet. Cotton socks in any warm boot will make your feet cold. The warmth of the boot while you are active make your feet sweat. I have the LaCross Iceman from a couple decades ago, still no need to go buy something different.
    • Some wild meat can have trichinosis.  Domestic pork no longer has it. I'm pretty sure that venison doesn't have a parasite issue.
