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.

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!

    • You almost need to put a guy in his face and play the rest of the PK 4 on 3.
    • About time!!! Stalock on his way up...hope they play him soon.
    •   Tiger meat on a cracker is delicious.    Yes, "may". I don't have a link to his page and I haven't been to it in years so I have no idea.I'll admit that I'm more than likely wrong and just jaded from years of working in internet marketing but I'm not gullible enough to take the word of random internet peeps. Do you have a link to his page so I can verify?
    • Also check out "straw bale gardening".  
    •   My folks liked them.  The Hubbards are large and the flesh is quite thick.   Plants in late april is jumping the gun.  Liable to freeze, even with global warming.   reasonable chance of frost there until middle of may.  You want the dirt to be warm, so think of them like tomatoes or cucumbers.   seeds rot in cold soil.    frost kills plants
    • Speaking of desperate snowflakes...... check this out.   Can't wait for the hearings on Cspan.... Legogate.   Or maybe batgate....   (no I have no idea of the credibility of "heatstreet" so read at your own risk) (owned by dow jones, so part of the mainstream media at least sort of) https://heatst.com/politics/democrats-to-investigate-after-trump-official-makes-lego-batman-joke/  
    •   I doubt it.  Its hard to go back and even if you did most of the damage has already been done.  Besides it would be admitting failure, not many people like to do that and I've seen no evidence that ownership believes it did fail  Perhaps to them it didn't, with 2 sites they might be taking in more money now due to more ad spots to sell.  Although the question is longevity, do ad dollars start to suffer as users leave and content dwindles?  For awhile its not hard to pump up the stats and make the site look good to advertisers with number of visits and page views, etc.  However, if an advertiser looked at the site for themselves its easy to see all the sub forums that haven't had a new post in months or that most of the views and clicks are coming from threads with Trump in the title.   Forums as a whole are also LONG past their prime and are quickly fading out.  Facebook groups and other social media are taking over.  Why log into many different forums when you can simply log in to facebook and have everything right there along with all of your real world connections?  Advertisers are likely to be focusing more of their ad dollars on the platform as time goes by.

    • The pipeline being built is a good thing. Gutting regulation for the sake of gutting regulation is stupid - and that seems to be his tactic. Some regulations are necessary. The "illegal flow" had been declining for years; attributing the continuation of that arc to Trump isn't really sensible.
