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

    • Great fish @Lals!   You sound like we did on the way home from our trip - analyzing every fish we didn’t hook up or keep hooked after they bit.  I didn’t get any joy from a Top Raider either but live chucking them.   Thanks for the report!
    • Just came back from LOTW.  Numbers were down but not bites.  I was a miserable 6 for 15 fish on. 75% of the bites came on the figure 8, I mostly tried to set back into them and they would come "unbuttoned " pretty quickly.  Next year, I will  try pulling them around or if they bite up in the corner of my figure 8, I would then pull the rod straight back trying to set it in the corner of their mouth.   Smaller bucktails got the most bites.  Cranks did pretty well too -- 7" Slammers and Crane Bait.  One friend got a 48 on a Top Raider. I had a 4 -5 large fish follow a top raider or a jackpot but none bit.  My brother got a 50" on a Mepps Musky Marabou.  
    • The problem with fishing walleye below 35' is that whatever you catch you best be planning to keep. Bringing them out of that depth will kill them for sure no matter how slowly it is done.

    • I had this exact model for many years and it even ran for several years after my wife ran straight gas in it and seized it up one day when I wasn't home. After it cooled down and I replaced the gas in the tank with mixed fuel, it started right up but always had a knock after that.
    • I came through Pennsylvania to get here at least and there isn’t a Maryland forum so here goes:   I have a couple extra days later this week and a car to go wherever.  I’ve been looking for a guide or charter to get on the water but am having more trouble than expected.  The Chesapeake Bay charters for stripers run up to 6 in a group but don’t mix groups so jumping on an unfilled boat doesn’t seem to be an option. I’ve been working with one captain willing to try but no dice yet.  I could have the whole boat to myself for $600 I suppose...   So anyway, is there anyone who has a suggestion, contact, or even a boat in the Maryland area for ANY kind of fishing?  Honestly I’m pretty open but would prefer something coastal.  Have car, will travel.   I talked to a guy with a sweet jet boat at The Point of Rocks on the Potomac yesterday but he doesn’t guide.  But that could be an option too.  Might head to Niagara Falls after I’m done in Baltimore so NY state so there’s another one.   Yep, this is an official Wanderabout.
    • Tonight I caught crappie, bass, big bluegills, rock bass, pike and a snapping turtle.... All after 11pm!  Try it sometime, tiny black jigs for big nocturnal bluegills. Loud Black topwaters for Pike n bass. Bring extra flashlight batteries and bug spray, lots of bug spray!!!
    • Those old 2 strokes just keep running forever.
    • I will take it where are you located ? Will be gone next week fishing be back week of 22nd. I am using a 80's model lawnboy push for trimming be nice to have a backup newer model.
    • I have caught fish on the slide diver but I don’t notice  any difference from the regular Dipsey diver and they are a pain in the one-just-like-silly-me to set up. I have Dipsy’s in all kinds of different colors and I can’t tell if that makes a difference either. I have one that actually will glow in the dark
