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

Team Red_Ball with the winning 14.7 lbs.

They took the big fish award with a 5 lb Northern Pike. The fish was released.
The weigh scale got plenty of use!
Still hitting even in the bag???
For first place Team Red_Ball received trip with John Navratil of Navigator Guide Service!

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.

    • And they still come out with that product! 🙃
    • I ran my last set of hankook dynapro ATM tires for 94,000 and wasn't at the 3/32 wear mark. Just wanted to get a new set before I started grad school. 40k on my current set without issues. I rotated mine every 7500 miles. I have a friend who got 103,000 out of his set. I know people will call BS but I have no reason to lie and no incentive. Both were on half ton chev trucks and I took mine down some super sketchy farm roads that were previously flooded and some flooded logging roads. It's the only tire I'll buy and their fairly affordable. Also a good alignment goes a long ways in the longevity of tires
    • So..............when do pitcher's and catcher's report to spring training?
    • Wine, rum and Woodford 🙄
    • Do they drink Wine while cooking like our ladies?  😋
    • I just put on a set of Falken Wildpeak ATW3 before hunting season and have been impressed so far. The only problem is I don’t have anything to compare against because they replaced the factory tires on my pickup that were 6 years old. I wanted a little more aggressive tire than the factory tires and these seemed to fit that description. I only put about 7-8k miles on my pickup a year so it’s going to take a while to find out for sure how they are in the wrong run but I am happy so far and the price on these tires was great. 
    • I guarantee they are all hand made. 50 lbs of dipping chocolate 10 lbs of white chocolate, mass quantities of sugar, coconut and fondant. Then 13 women put in 8 hours of mixing, rolling, dipping and trimming. Each family has some of the centers mixed ahead of time because they need to cool and set overnight.
    • check out the smith lift it is expensive but they work.
    • Thanks again.  Now the issue is how do you tell someone that the ideas she has are wrong.  She has never accepted advice from me.  Maybe I should have one of you guys contact her.  No, actually I wouldn't do that to anyone.
    • anyone find a lighter alternative to the ice castle tables? the thing can be a PITA to move and align
