I was wondering the same. I drove by there yesterday when I went to my grandparents house. It looked like a ROUGH day to be on the water. There were whitecaps on the little ponds, and the lakes looked aweful. My guess would be a good crankin bite.

Wonderin if ted and shane pulled their bags from "the spot" at n/s center. I've always heard every annual winners always win just from "the spot"

The Capras, Ravelings, Moynaghs are a different class of fisherman than most of us. They lost more fish than I've caught.

I don't think it is a coincidence that the same guys finish near the top at these events. I believe that time on the water is a huge factor. These guys that always finish well are, and have in the past, put there time in on the water. The more you fish the more you are going to catch.

The other factor that sets these guys apart for the rest is there confidence. I watched the weigh-in, and to me in was amazing the difference in the attitudes. I didn't know most of the guys and only recognized a few by name, but it was obvious to me the guys that had the attitude of winners and the guys that were just happy to be there.

I strongly believe that the combination of time on the water and confidence in yourself is a recipe for success.

Just my 2 cents.

I will agree with that to an extent but i think we all have our own opinion on the Capras!!!! I'm glad YOU said this!! A big bank account will get you "spots" also

So where does a big bank account get me spots?

I hear this frequently I think it is nonsense. I suppose that is why KVD won angler fo the year too considering he is the biggest $$ winner in history this theroy must be how he does it too.

Nevermind the hours on the water these guys put in it must be the bank account thing. Well I guess I will put my fishing gear away and go make some $$ so I can win tourneys. Good Fishing!!!

Thats not apples to apples, KVD and our local pro's....come on. I've seen it and watched it happen down here on the Miss. river.. If I've offended you My Bad! but certain people pay for spots. Is it wrong, some would say yes and others will say no, it a personal thing.

we finished 11th 29+lbs for 10 fish. i was just saying what i heard and they gave the spot to another team the second day and they pulled 13+lbs. not starting anything. congrats to them for finding something different on very pressured lakes. and congrats to the second place team for losing with 36+lbs of fish. that had to be hard.

There is no need to go into detail about our own opinions, we have them for a reason and that is just how it is!!!! Yes they are good anglers there is no doubt about that.

You can have all the spots in the world you still have figure out how to get the big fish to bite and deal with weather/angling pressure/etc. I'm sure the boat rocks both ways too, you don't think everyone and their brother is keeping an eye on where those guys fish and 'borrow' those spots. Its boils down to skill, time on the water, and the circles you travel in for sharing information.

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
