Congrats goes out to Chuck and Aaron for a really nice win. It was very close between them and Tom and Mark. Super Job by both teams.

Congrats also goes out to the team of Ron and Doug for bringing in the big fish for the tournament. A Northern Pike that was 34 inches long with a 13 3/4 inch girth. Nice Job guys and I'm sure that you will enjoy that nice Scenic Tackle jig kit.

See everyone on West Battle next month for our last Tourney of the year frown.gif

Winni was a real hoot. Going into the tourney I was skeptical and especially when returning for weigh in on Saturday (which really surprised us!). A lot of those waters can shut off with a flick of the switch, and when the NW winds went crazy Saturday afternoon it really slowed the bite. We were always on the move trying to find active fish.

I'm not going into specifics as to too many of my spots, but those who are in the league I shared every single detail. You'll have to join the league to find out!!

I will say that the area of Sugar Lake produced most of the bass and pike and we caught all the gills in Little Cutfoot Sioux. The areas of the cane, bullrushes and wild rice were key for these fish.

We found a lot of big walleyes on West Winni with leeches and casting cranks over rock piles. When the winds switched 180 degrees on Saturday those fish were lock jawed for us.

We caught a total of 5 bass, 5 northerns, maybe 12 or so perch and 28 gills for the 2 day event.

What a blast!! I have fished Winni for years but I never, ever (honestly) knew there were that many bass and gills in that huge body of water. I lost one bass that we guessed was around the 6lb mark! These events have really taught me to keep an open mind.

I know the race for first is really tight, but how tight is it? Can we see an overall standings and did we decide what system we were going to use?

    • That is some great photography!
    • In late summer end of July and August when the water warms and the oxygen drops in the shallows. I have caught Eye's trolling deep diving raps, plugs behind dispy divers for suspended fish over 50-70 feet of water where the bait balls are. So, yes please don't follow us lost crazy people around out there! 🤪  😁
    • They call it 'No Man's Land' because nobody fishes it, unless they are lost, stupid or their locator is in simulation mode. That works for me because that's my comfort zone. Most people wouldn't believe the numbers of trophy fish I have caught in water that's over 50' deep. Recently I was out on a local lake trolling for walleyes in deep water with shallow and medium diving crankbaits, and I noticed 3 other boats that were avoiding the normal structure. Maybe their locators were broken or in demo mode, but for there to be 4 of us driving slowly around the open water, it seemed like more than a coincidence. I boated 4 eyes in 4 hours, with a smaller average size than I was hoping for. I am not looking for lakes, spots or secrets.... I am just curious if anybody else has noticed these 'fools' fishing water too deep for 'normal' fishing. Or maybe you have tried it a time or two, let me know what made you steer your boat away from the shoreline? Did it work out for you?  Is this style of fishing becoming more popular, or am I just paranoid?
    • Don't know yet if there are more.   
    • nope, they just like my bluebird houses! they got evicted again 2 nites ago!!!!!!!!! i learned a long time ago no millet. i only feed sunflower and safflower seed along with thistle!
    • WinnerDinner, what do you fish for there In Ireland?  
    • Well there's that! 👍  
    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
