S MN LETS Lake Francis Results

Recommended Posts

Things really evened out in the Lake Francis Event. Team Red_Ball won the event with 14.7 lbs and the big fish award with a 5 lb Northern Pike. Followed by Team Troutman with 11 lbs then Team Lucky with 8.1, Team Rip with 7.8 and Team Camo with 3.7. Lake Francis was busy with boat traffic all day making it a tough bite. Most of the teams found a pattern that worked for them and were able to bring some fish to the scale. Great job guys! For first place Team Red_Ball received some great prizes from Catch-n Tackle, also several nice worm packs for the big fish, and a guided trip with John Navratil of Navigator Guide Service! That should be a fun trip! smile.gif Congratulations Guys.

Good Luck & Good Fishing. Lucky

Congratulations to all the teams.
Thanks to John Eggers of Eggers Bow Series Spinners for your help at the event and for the donation of our SM LETS weighscale. John is sending all the contestants a sample of his spinners in the mail this week!
See John's spinners at http://catchn.com/spinners.html
I was thrilled to have John in the boat with me for the event.

Thrilling also was getting to see Catch-N Tackle Prep-Staff associate Ryan Ferch attend the event and fish the tournament as a spectator.

Ferch fished with fishing-buddie Bob Sands. They did well... releaseing 16 Northern one of which weighted about 6lbs and many Crappie!
Fishing our SM LETS tournament as a spectator is a fun way to learn how pro tournaments work, a great way to join in the FUN, and a way to meet SM LETS tournament pros.
Overall, it was a great day to be on the water and in the boat fishing a tournament. What FUN!!!

Had a good time. Must have thrown back 20 Pike.

Wow that 12:00 - 4:00 pm stretch, I was half baked when I got off the lake. It was almost like work. With all the wakes form the big boats ( what was that one 30') and the jetskis it's amazing we caught any fish at all. That is one reason why I like wind.

Now it's time to do some fun fishing for awhile. I think my son and I are going to go to German and try to get a jpeg of a fence post.

    • 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
