We are getting closer to our 4th annual event on Lake Vermilion. We will be going out of Frotune Bay Resort and Casino. We are again guaranteeing the 1st place prize of $10,000. The Tournament will take place Saturday, May 16th. The rules meeting and dinner will be Friday the 15th. We are limited to 100 boats.

I just spoke with Fortune Bay, and they told me there is one room available under our block of rooms. The rest of the Resort is full. If you are interested, please give them a buzz.

I was afraid of that. Also, I continue to get calls about openings. We do still have room if you are thinking about sending in your entry. I just received confirmation from the DNR. They amended our permit to allow 100 boats.

Well, we are a week away from the Tourney. I met with Fortune Bay yesteday and finalized everything. They did mention they have room in their RV park if anyone is still looking for a place to stay. Also, we may have one room available in our block. Please let me know if you are still looking for a room.

Jamie-If you still have that room available for Fri. night, we'll take it (me, Jake, Gary, Tony). Give me a call later tonight and let me know the verdict. My #'s in the book. Thanks!

I want to thank all of you who chose to fish with us again this year. We had a great event, even with the winds........ The total payout was over $25,000 in cash and prizes. Have a great summer all, and I hope to see you next year!

    • I have a little can of lock deicer taped to the gas tank under my tank cover. I haven't had to use it for the lock, but did use it the other weekend when the latch froze up.
    • Because they didn't need to. President Obama was totally open to the press corps and never threatened to "throw them out of the White House". President Obama never refused to take a question from a legitimate and credentialed reporter and told the reporter he represents "fake news". And of course President Obama would never think of ridiculing a reporter who suffered a serious physical problem. We are moving from an erudite, articulate and thoughtful man,  sensitive to others, to an inarticulate baboon who cannot put more than 140 words together at one time. The Donald is going to destroy the Republican Party.   Remember I said this and on this date. I won't need to say it again.
    • we dont remember asking you!!!!!!!!
    • Have to admit, I was expecting a different conversation based on the subject line of this thread!   Would it work to have a hole in 3 corners, with the guys grouped toward the center  with their backs to each other? Assuming your hub has 2 doors, that would allow people to get in/out without too much hassle.   I'm also assuming if you're currently fitting three people in a three person hub, you're keeping things rather scaled down. I have a three-man, but once I get chairs, a heater, minnow bucket, etc. in there it's really a 2-man.  
    • Well Walleyehooker, you may be in luck, because after 5 days of this warm weather it may take a week or two of cold and snow to just get back to point zero on the trails anyway! So you maybe back by then.
    • A 26 incher from a couple weeks ago.  Fattie too.
    • Great pics!  Thanks for the update!  I'm headed up this weekend and hope to get on 'em.  I'll report back next week with my findings.
    • Oh c'mon you guys they all say 60 Db, ya right! You'd have to be nuts to spend double just cause it says Honda or Yamaha on it.
    • Taking fish from our non-sustainable lakes to consume???!?!?!?!!!  *GASP* O MY GOD....  
    • This has worked best for me. I can have better access to the door for all and a good spot for the heater.
