Congratulations to the Balsam Lake Bandits for top honors at Pool 4 and Big Fish! Also to Team Jighead and Crystal Connection for a very close 2nd and 3rd. Thanks to everyone for making it a great event. Fishing was tough with the post storm conditions, but some nice fish came in. The HSOforum will be updated this week, here are the results and photo's.

Payout - (1st - 3rd + Big Fish)
4th - T.J.'s Tackle Pack

Balsam Lake Bandits received a nice Ring'N grub tackle kit and jig heads from Catch'N Tackle for their 1st place finish (along with a nice payout).

4th place Walleye Wackers received tackle kits from T.J.'s Tackle. These kits include the Case plastics Magic Stik baits, mad toms, king grubs, sinkin salty minnow, and the hot new weightless bait "Jack's worm".


Here are a few photo's that I had. Anyone else that has photo's, feel free to post or send them to me (I'd like to get some of those for the HSOforum as well). Looking forward to Rush Lake on June 13th, see ya all then!

Thanks everyone for a great time. Only problem I have is that now we have to wait a month for the next event.

See you all in June.

Yea, the event was lots of fun. The morning was a bit chilly but the weather looked up for the afternoon. That 4lb smallie was quite a beast, only one like it for the day too, good job W Wackers! We fished some backwaters and rip rap in the morning with little success besides one lost fish. Ended up catching all of our fish from the four wingdams just upstream of the marina we launched at. Caught 2 smallies and a sheepie in the am, about 6 smallies, that pike and a buffalo in the afternoon. Pike came on a frenzy crank, all the bass came with jig/minnow jig/leech combo and one on a a senko. Can't wait until the next one, new lake for us, and we'll have a new boat too. See ya'll later.

Which Rush Lake are we talking about for the second outing. Trying to get details and can't find the one that we seem to be looking for. Location (city / county), best directions from cities.

Thanks and see you there

That's Rush in Chisago cnty if you're looking on lakefinder. It's east and west rush, basically two different lakes if I'm thinking of the right ones right? Which do we launch onto?

I sent out an email to everyone with the info. I had one email returned that I think must have been yours 74 instead of 79. I re-sent the email to you.

You can launch at either West or East Rush. The tournament headquarters will be on West Rush. There will be FM banners up Saturday a.m. There are 4 teams as of now that are planning to camp out Saturday night - I think most planning on fishing Saturday. I have you and your brother as a maybe.

    • Is it generally a good idea to use two treble hooks on a tip up setup?

    • Minnesota Archery again. D season in Wisconsin. Hopefully taking my dad out if possible, he's 95 and not in great shape right now. Also have a women's mentored hunt later in May.  Not certain yet, but hoping to put a Nebraska hunt together.  Seeing WAY more than expected this fall what with the cold wet spring we had.
    • We were up fishing from last Thursday afternoon through Saturday evening. Fishing was great, lots of nice walleyes with a couple of fat 28" fish as the biggest and plenty of saugers. Fish bit all day with our best bite coming each day from about 2-315. Fish were somewhat sluggish from 11-1230 and had to be coaxed into biting or didn't bite at all but after 1230 most everything we marked bit. We were set up in 23-24', color didn't seem to matter although we tend to use gold more than most other colors on our spoons and we basically had every color tied on our set lines and they bit them all. There was about 3-4" of snow on the lake Thursday when we got there but it was a packed 1-2" by the time we left Saturday night. Some areas of rough ice but other areas are nice and smooth, generally about 14-16" of ice where we fished. Can't wait to get back up, good luck if you are going out!
