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.

    • Sorry. I see this concept is completely over everyone's head here.    
    •   Just outlaw anything that might hurt someone.    If it saves just one life..... Do it for the children....   And they want us to believe these 2 political parties are different. 
    • Luckily for me my neighbor across the road bought a hive with 2500 or 25,000 bees, I forget, last summer. Have bees everywhere here in the summer and we plant a lot of flowers and will be increasing that this summer to help the little dudes. Even got a jar of honey from him last year!
    • I think just about anything can be smoked. would be easy to get the crappies over dry. they turned out great using the technique above. dang near as good as smoked eggs!  
    • Raised beds, you hear people talk about them but what are they? Depending on how much money you want to spend on material and dirt a raised bed can be just a couple 2x8’s nailed together to waist high beds that you don’t need to bend over to work. Now that waist high one will with dirt is going to cost you some compared to the shallow 2x8 bed. Either way a raised bed does some or all of the following things. It eliminates the need for tilling, as you never step into the bed thus compacting it. When you fill the bed it allows you too put clean dirt exactly where you want it, not on the paths between beds where you walk and never plant. Weed control is much easier. Containing the crop you are growing is much easier. Harvesting is much easier. You can add fertilizer taylor made for the crop you are growing not fertilizing the entire garden that maybe 30% of that you walk on and don’t grow in.   The last few years I have been switching to low raised beds and container growing. A typical 4x8 bed takes twenty bags of dirt to fill or about 500#’s the beds are so fluffy that I can turn them over with my hand or just a little rake. This season I am going to add three more beds which will give me total of 11 and over 50 five gallon containers. Of course if room is not a problem then traditional planting stills works just fine especially for spuds and melons and squash. Just offering other ideas.
    •   But yet Christians claim they do.....  
    •   The one I made called for cumin. I think next time I might do something in between my recipe and this one.
    • I always thought smoking was for more fattier fish such as lake trout, salmon, suckers, whitefish and the like?
    •     This sounds good. Gonna have to try it   Plus the emphasis on vegetables in most Chilis
