Man! What a blast! I had a great time at every event this year! All of you guys are great! Once again Scott smoked everybody (I was hoping we had a chance because Adam wasn't there!) But, Scott's partner Duckaholic came through in a pinch! (Hey Duck, I am NEVER having one of your Bloody Mary's! I had heartburn all the way home!) Big Thanks goes out to my partner Pwaldow, He Rocks! Talk about a camp cook! I gain wait at everyone of these events! Big Congratulations to Team Notsoclueless Fisherman, once again they brought in impressive bags of fish both days and ended up finishing second overall!
And....Lest not forget Team W#@(#.....What to say! I suggest counseling for both of ya!

Every Tournament was a blast, and anybody thinking about fishing them next year....Do it! What a great bunch of people! Until next year!

Cory said it well, that was a blast! I also want to thank Paul for all his work. Nothing like a big meal after a long day on the water. As always the food was excellent!!

I really enjoyed the season and will miss being able to fish these events next year. The multi-species tournament format is the ultimate learning experience, when it comes to fishing. I encourage everyone who has been thinking about fishing the series next year or who has even considered it, to do it. It is simply a blast! You will meet a lot of great guys and get to spend 2 days fishing on some great MN lakes.

I would imagine the series will be full next year so if you are thinking about fishing it, you may want to get a team together quick. From the way it sounds most of last years teams will be back as well as some of the teams are splitting and making new teams.

Thanks again to all the teams that fished this year. It was a great learning experience for me and I think there are going to be some great teams to compete with next year. Look out for team Clueless, second place overall this season and numerous top 3 finishes!! Well done guys!

Thanks again to everyone that made this series such a fun time, especially team Frantzick/Waldowski or Frandowski or whatever you guys call yourself!!

It was hard to say goodbye to this summer's events. It was simply a blast and it just got to be more and more fun. I met a lot of GREAT people, GREAT food and learned A LOT about fishing. The people and all the fun truly felt like a "FishingMN Family". I can't wait for next year.

Thanks to all who put in the efforts to make these events possible.

Special thanks to Paul for the excellent food and the hard work he went through to plan, arrange and cook the meals and everything else in between. Great work!

Gosh!!!! I don't know what to say, but thanks. The credit should really go to Gullguide for putting the league together, coming up with all of the rules, etc....

Thanks to Scott for keeping track of all the dough smile.gif

I hope to see all of you guys again next year and I hope to see some of you during the I.C.E Series. grin.gif

Thanks to everyone who participated. I had a BLAST!!!!

I too want to say thanks to all who participated. Although I came aboard the league after the Vermillion event, I had a blast at all of the others. What a great group of people. Have made some friendships that will last for years. It's too bad there aren't more this year just to B.S. with everyone. Congrats to Scott, and good luck up at LOW. Hope to see you next year out on some of the other tourney trails. Team Clueless, great job. You always seem to find a good fish or two! Team [email protected]*e, what a blast, although I think Dan could use a bit more sleep.

Not sure if BFJ and I will be fishing next year or not, kind of depends on what and where I find work. We are hoping to do the ICE series.

Take care,
Opie

My only regret is that I couldn't make it to an event this year. I had chances, but it always seemed to be something.

I'm looking forward to the ICE Series this winter. It was a great time last year and should be even better this year.

Thanks to everyone from the boyz of Team WH*RE... we had a great time, met some interesting and down right scary people! Hopefully we will be around next year, but there would have to be some changes... but that is for another discussion... And for Cory... WE need help? I don't think I have EVER dressed up as a little princess for anyone!

Kudo's to the camp chef! Awesome rum punch... and even better on the steaks!! It was great putting faces to some of the forum names whom I hadn't met yet. It was also great seeing a few familiar faces from the I.C.E. Series! Thanks to Tom and Paul for putting on such a great event. And I especially want to thank my partner Scott for putting up with me for yet another tournament! I continue to learn each time out with you bud!!

Hope to fish the I.C.E. series again this year. It would be great to see some carryover of people from the summer events. Maybe we could even get the "NotSoClueless" gang up this winter from Nebraska!!

Duck-o-holic

PS-- Paul... I hope that Cory didn't drive home after that Bloody Mary. Scott and I saw a few sections of ditch with some run-over election signs!!! grin.gif

    • For those that knew him.     Great Outdoors (Jim Maki) has passed away. From the various stories heard it seems he died suddenly on his boat dock. It sounds that he was just getting ready to go fishing.               Below is the info found in the Ely Echo.  Jim will be dearly missed among his friends. He had just recently closed the sale of his bait shop and was relieved to find he now some more time to do more fishing and other things.                                    THE ELY ECHO  Submitted by admin1 on Sun, 07/07/2019 - 18:47  James Robert Maki of Ely, 70, died on July 6, at his home on Burntside Lake. He was where he loved to be, doing what he loved, fishing.  Born on August 24, 1948 in Ely Minnesota, Jim was the son of Luella (Erickson) Maki and Robert William (Ropey) Maki. After graduating from Ely High School, Jim joined the Army serving from September 1967 until December 1970. He was in the 173rd Airborne Division,the 41st Battalion, working as an MP. He sustained injuries in Vietnam.  Returning to Ely after his military commitment, he married Rebecca (Becky) Richards on February 5, 1972. He and Becky raised their two children, Krista and Steven, at their home on Burntside Lake. Jim worked at US Steel’s Minntac Plant in Mountain Iron from1971 to 1975 and as a millwright for Inland Steel at the Minorca Plant in Virginia from 1976 until 2003, when he retired. Jim was a member of Steel Workers Local #1938 and Local #6115. Jim also owned and operated the Great Outdoors Bait and Tackle Shop onSheridan Street from 1985 until 2019.  An avid outdoorsman, Jim enjoyed hunting and fishing. In his younger years, he trapped his own bait, and went ricing with his wife and in-laws. He loved the Ely area and was the unofficial ‘mayor’ of Burntside Lake, being the voice of authority regarding fishing and ice conditions.  Jim, who was affectionately known as ‘Jaws’, had the gift of gab and was always up for conversation. He had a story about anybody you could name, fishing advice to share, and was willing to express his political opinion whether you asked or not. He could becleverly funny, entertaining his audiences with humorous tales from his extensive knowledge of Ely’s colorful past.  Above all, Jim was known for his heartfelt concern and interest in people. He devoted many hours coaching youth hockey and was always available to provide support for his friends, family, and even people he just met.  Jim was preceded in death by his parents and his wife Becky. He is survived by his daughter Krista (Shawn) Zurn and son Steven (Katie) Maki and grandchildren Cas Grant, Ayden Maki and Kylee Maki. He is also survived by his loving companion of 20 years, CeliaDomich.  A gathering to remember Jim will be held on July 27 at the Longbranch in Winton from noon to 3 p.m.  
    • Is this any other folks with houses on the pond or do you have the whole thing?  Not sure if they would complain or not if there are?  
    • The crib idea is a bit more than I am looking for.  I just want a 4' x 8' dock section on a little pond.  Trying to keep this around $500.   It is a curious point though.  The pond doesn't even show up as water on some maps even though it's been there forever.  Aerial photographs from the 40s show it in the middle of a cornfield.  The county plat map shows it as water and it shows I own a slice of it across to the other side, as opposed to the normal deal where your property line ends at the water.    Of course for property tax purposes, it's considered lakeshore.    
    • We recently embarked on a paddling, fishing and camping adventure on the Saint Croix River.. We put the Kayaks in at Interstate Park (MN) and our take out point was Marine on St. Croix (16.1 miles downstream). In between those launches we explored the river, back waters, caught multiple different species of fish, camped one night at a primitive site, got rained on and had a blast! I can't wait to get back out on that stretch of river. This video captures a good portion of our adventure.    
    • It didn’t sound like his pond was much of a “waterway” but I get your point.  There are actual dock guidelines/rules published by the DNR that should be referenced.  I’m pretty confident he’d be OK.
    • Nice win last night! That triple play really picked them up. Thought Rogers was going to let another 1 slip away & then he found his curve. Hope they can keep knocking them out of the park.
    • I wonder if down here in the cities, if you would have to get a permit to put in a crib dock since it more of a permanent structure in a water way?  
    • To all the, (2001 Yamaha 80 hp. 4 stroke on a 18.6 Lund ) guru"s out there. New thing with my motor.... If I take it out with 3 guys in it that weigh 250 each appx... I leave the boat landing and get it on plane and up to like 29-30 mph and 5200 rpm's. After awhile,,  like a 15 minute ride across the lake I go to a stop and the alarm goes off and I see like heat smoke coming out of the back of motor. If I put it in neutral and rev it up a couple times the smoke and alarm quits and it is good to go all day like trolling etc. I did put a new water pump and impeller in it last year also. I have not changed the thermostat in maybe 5 years either.  YEA I NKOW >>> Every couple hundred hours down here in the s.w. part of minnesota. Yes, the lakes are shallow and green and muddy all the time. I'm leaning towards the thermostat this weekend. Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks guys and gal's.
    • Is the bottom content firm or soft?  If it’s firm and you’re feeling industrious enough, you could crib it.  Our dock in Ely rests on cribs and is in a slow part of the river.  Haven’t had a problem since we put it in about 8 years ago.  Haven’t even had to re-level it.   You’ll probably be fine with posts too if the bottom is softer but might have to mess with the leveling a little.  
    • I live on the North side of a small 100 acre lake, I haven't removed my dock for several years. The ice melts away from shore on the North side first and is well beyond the dock by the time it starts getting pushed around by the wind. Last year the wind came from the south and I thought the ice was going to crush the dock. When I finally went down to the lake to look, I saw that the ice had deteriorated enough that it did no damage. So, I would like to think that you should be able to leave it in. If the ice moves when your poles are still frozen in, it might drag the dock 'out to sea' but that's probably the worst case scenario. Another idea is to have a levitating dock. You say you have a lot of trees, if you have a pair of large trees by the shoreline, you could run a heavy cable or chain from the trees to the dock and make it suspend above the water. Use poles to stabilize it in the warm months and pull them up in the fall. This worked for my dad for about 15 years until he moved. The pics show the cable he used as the backbone of the system.
