BASS Announced the 2009 & 2010 Elite Series Schedule today, No they are not coming to Minnesota but they will be coming to Iowa next's year. They were suppose to come to Iowa a few weeks ago but due to the rain and high water level they moved the tournament.

Also they Announced that there will be NO MORE Co-Anglers in the Elite Series. There will still be co-anglers in the opens and other bassmaster events. I'm not sure what to think of that. As a tournament angler and weekend fisherman i can see both sides to this. The biggest problem with this is cheating, thats why the co-angler were there in a since. BASS did say that they are going to have a ride along program for fans. So will see how that go!!!

BASS also Announced that there will be a NEW BASS Northern Open Series. This is great for our state (hoping it includes it) and will help anglers in the north country chase there dream of fishing at the top level.

Having an observer should eliminate the chance that cheating will occur.. Also, I would love to ride around as an observer with an elite pro. I may even prefer it over fishing as a co-angler. I think I would learn more by constantly being able to watch the pro fish every cast and really concentrate on how they approach things on the water different than the average angler.

It would be cool to go around and watch what they do and where they go to get the monsters they do. I would be a grat time on the water.

At first I was disappointed in the announcement that there would be no more co-anglers, I was thinking about trying to get into one close to home here. But like Bob said, I think I would almost rather be an observer so I could focus on learning how the pros think and fish, rather than competing myself and mostly focusing on how I was fishing. I guess the pros are pumped to be fishing alone, and I can definitely see that as I'm sure that some get frustrated at times when a co-angler catches a monster from one of their spots they had prefished earlier.

i agree it would be fun to ride around with a pro for a day. I just wonder what the cost is going to be.

it used to be $300 to be an observer in the Elite 50's and that would be a couple days

    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
    • Our son has one... mid 90's vintage....   I think it is the 6, was there another choice?   Not very good gas milage...
    • Anyone have one of these or know the pros and cons about them? I was looking at side by sides but came to the conclusion if I were going to spend around 15K or so I would rather have something more road worthy with a heater. Was surprised what they want for a new Jeep so I would have to find a gently used one for that price. So I would like to know the pros and cons with the little older ones or what to look for and what not to. I'm sure a guy would want the 6 cylinder as I might want to put a plow on the front eventually if we ever get snow.
    • Feiders sittin just outside the top 12. Really cool to see him doing well this year. Didnt sound like he had much luck prefishing going into the last tournament or this one but hes doin a heck of a job when it matters. Would be sweet to see him fighting for another top 12 spot on saturday!   As for my fantasy team... not so good. I was having a decent year so far (except for tharp last tourney).
    • Next time just call it a great Pike video, with some bonus Bass thrown in! Who's to know?
    • Good luck and shoot straight 
    • He said "getting wood" uh uhha 
    • Or I flat out suck, can't figure it out, on the bright side the snot rockets kept me entertained!    
    • The green up is still in full swing this week, with the help of consistent rain events and temperatures between the 50s and 70s. This, combined with recent snow in the northern portions of the state continues to put a damper on recently high fire danger across and has brought us to "Low" fire danger throughout the counties. Water levels are still running above normal, and the Wisconsin River is above flood stage. Trails across the state are likely to feature more than a few hints of mud. Bring your rubber boots or waterproof hikers and enjoy the scenery as the banks, forests, marshes and prairies respond to the influx of moisture. Challenging weather made for tough angling across the board this past week. Anglers from Marinette County to Brown County reported numerous attempts at walleye and brown trout. Murkier water didn't help, but reports came in from anglers that they were seeing success for non-target species, particularly northern pike. In Oconto County, the sucker run is rolling along and disturbing the bite. In Brown County, those that did see success for walleye noted that the fish were fully spawned and on their way back to the bay. Stream anglers are reporting a difficult steelhead bite in eastern Door County, while suckers have dispersed in Kewaunee County, leaving the steelhead there more visible as temperatures climb upwards. Water temperatures range from the upper 40s to the low 50s. There were two to four foot waves and small craft advisories in effect last Thursday and Friday in Milwaukee. Anglers at the McKinley Pier are looking for coho and chinook salmon, while brown trout were being landed behind Summerfest. Anglers in Racine County reported boaters and pier anglers landing brown trout as well as a few coho. At the Root River, water visibility was around 12 inches, with an improving steelhead bite and a few remaining suckers caught. Anglers in Kenosha saw more success for browns from the harbor than the south pier. Though no catches were reported from the Pike, the mouth of the river is open and visibility is good. Temperatures for these waters ranged from 47 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit. .
