Weigh-in site?

Recommended Posts

Guest

Chuck, I know they told us where the weigh-in will be, but can you post it for those who might forget?

Also, where is the closest access and are we going 8 straight hours or are we breaking? It's a big chain with a lot of no-wake zones....just curious.

Just curious since I have seen (and this is from the road, not a boat) boats lined up like a traffic jam to get through the channels. No biggie if everyone has to deal with the same thing.

You beat me to it, Tom. smile.gif

Here's the details for all of those who did not hear it at the Cass event.

Weigh in's will be held on Lake Le Homme Dieu in Wharf Bay (I believe that's the name), straight across the street from Bug-A-Boo Bay restaurant/bar. We are using private property that has a sand beach for boats, and this property is almost directly across the street from the bar, but slightly to the east (viewing to the left of Bug-A-Boo from the water).

(Ok, Grabs posted at the same time I did. LOL) Everyone must meet at the starting point at 9:30 a.m. SHARP for inspection and brief rules meeting.

It appears there will be a Saturday bass tourney on the chain with 44 boats. I don't know if this will affect us or not, but it could slow things up through the narrows at times. (and launch sites might be congested, so we need a central spot to meet).

I suggest NO break due to the circumstances, but the rules state we mush vote. smile.gif We need to vote on whether we have a break or not. Water temps are quite cool for this time of year and will get cooler with lows in the low 40's and highs in the lower 60's for a few days.

No break would be ok. We'll just have to vote Saturday AM. It's a big enough body of water to warrant it.

44 boats should not affect us at all, there's a lot of water out there. What tourney is it by the way?

If I can cast my vote now it will be...No Break.

I could vote either way on taking a break. The water temps were still in the low 60's last weekend. There is a lot of water to cover, but even if you ran from one end to the other it really doesn't take that long to get there. A lot of those channels are only one boat at a time though which could slow things down and for that reason I would be willing to vote not to do a break.

Here is a picture with the launch and weigh-in areas.

Well if there are only 8 teams I think that may be the majority already. Ron and Steve said they could go either way. Chuck you may want to confirm that.

Looks like 6 teams have voted online and via email for no break so far, so that's the majority vote, so NO breaks.

If we don't see you at Ron's while camping, meet at the start location at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday for a short discussion and we'll go from there. Weigh-in will be at 6:00 p.m.

Sunday's starting time will be 6:00 a.m., like we did at the Cass event. Weigh-in will be at 2:00 p.m.

See you on the water...

    • I think 2 out of 3 actually gets them in for sure.  Washington, Eagles, and Carolina are the next 3 teams and they are all in worse shape then we are.  Washington is on their 4th QB, Eagles looks to be without Wentz against the Rams this week, and Carolina has lost the last 5 in a row and has to face the Saints 2 out of the next 3 weeks.    No matter what there is going to be a lousy team in the 6th seed.       
    • Well even if the Vikings happen to sneak thru the back door into the playoffs, there are 20 other teams that would be happy to be in that spot.     And who knows, anything can happen when you get into the tournament. AND NO I'm not drinking purple Kool aid.  Yet!!
    • The Vikes are a dumpster fire right now for sure!    Glad they ditched Flippo, that was a failed experiment. Really hoping they get rid of Priefer soon, too, as our special teams have been far from special for the last few years.    They don't deserve to make the playoffs at this point, but if they win out, they will make it.  Will this move propel them to make a run if they do make it?  Anything is possible, but we all know what happens to the Vikes in big-time games. So, I'm not gonna hold my breath!     
    • A way to kill the prion. As far as I know, it survives indefinitely. If we can kill it, we actually have a chance of wiping it off the face of the earth.  Until then, it's a winless battle, IMO.    As far as your last comment, not sure why that was brought up if you weren't directing it at me, or at least think I fit this generalization... Not sure where in any post that I have ever made, you'd get the slightest idea that I was the type of person you describe. While I am for limited govt, and reeling in some rules and regulations, I am overall an adamant supporter of most of our fish and game laws. When it comes to what is currently taking place to "control" CWD, I don't think it's working, and I think other avenues need to be explored in more detail. I've stated that I'm pretty fluid on my opinion on CWD, so part of me sees what is taking place as maybe being necessary, but, seeing the end results thus far, it appears to not be working.     
    • Only 10 years? Seems like much more.......😉😁😄
    • Sounds pretty friggin awesome to me. Still, for the couple hundred that it costs spraying is definitely worth it
    • I would bet the first time you seen it the OH Ship factor came to mind.
    • Thanks all for the feedback. The very first time I visited Upper Red - it was with Johnny P and he was awesome.  However he was not out on his own like he is now.  I've followed him over the years and am impressed with his  new setup.....probably time to give him another shot with his new outfit. After the folks that Johnny was with sold their houses to Beacon Harbor...I just followed the houses and have been using them.  Super nice people.  Always willing to offer some tips as well as move the house whenever I ask. The reason I think Upper Red and Beacon Harbor appeals to me is that when I fly in (from Utah), I can rent my car - pick up groceries - and drive out to the house.  I only have to pay for the house rental.  Other places I've looked at on LOTW pretty much have you coming in each night...so you pay for a day house and you pay for lodging at night. Going with others - where they take you out to your hut - I guess I just need to figure out how to pack things better so I don't feel like I am an inconvenience.     When I do come up - its usually by myself.  I enjoy the solitude.  4-5 days in a house in almost total silence.  Bliss.  However there have been times when I have brought a friend or last year I brought my son for his first trip.  He will be coming again with me this year. I guess another part would be expenses.  Depending on the flights available...I'm spending $600-$900 just on travel to get there.  So that takes a bit of my budget and forces me to look for the most cost effective options.  Double that if I bring my son. Maybe I'll skip next year and be back in 2020....I'll save my allowance and have a bit more to put towards Johnny or even a different lake.   Thanks Rundrave, I'll try the bigger options to draw them in.  I guess I am not use to using the larger baits just because of the way I am use to ice fishing.  I have the tackle....just need to be confident enough to give them a try!   I do have electronics...if I see fish I can usually catch them.  I agree - Its most likely location and no fish rather than not being able to catch the fish that are there.   Because I fly in and have to fit everything in my bag - I usually don't pack my outdoor gear (parka, bibs, boots, etc.).  But a few years ago I packed an extra bag with all that and then spent a day out of the house and hired a guide to take me out.  It was Brian "Bro".  And it was awesome.   I guess maybe I just need to change my frame of mind.  Plan better with being able to bring my gear, get more mobile, explore other options.   I loved my experience with Johnny.  I'll look up Cookie as well.   Thanks again for all the feedback - truly appreciated. If any of you will be on the lake the 27-31....feel free to stop by and say hello!
    • Well yesterday marks 10 years of craziness on this web page for me.  The time has gone by fast and I have met a lot of great folks along the way. I tried to do a slide show but I’m just not that good on that stuff so here is a long group of pictures of just some of the folks I have met and enjoyed fishing, GTG's and sledding with from this site. There were many more met at GTG’s and other fishing and sledding trips but I just didn’t get pictures of them all. 🙁 Some I met just for one outing and others I have done many trips with over the years. I joined to mainly “Leech” fishing and hunting ideas and spots off all you folks but instead I met and had great times with a lot of you.  Meeting and getting out in the Outdoors with folks is what this site should really be about along with sharing ideas.  Here’s to the next 10 years and all the adventures to come! 🙂 Leech~~ Matts.bmp J's fish.bmp
