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???

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.

    • Was at Long Point this past weekend. Lots of small fish, no slots from us......
    • Ill let dealer plug into computer and see what shows up. 
    • Pigger steak on the grill, taters and corn. Yea yea, I get docked etiquette points for no serving dishes.
    • I suppose there is no check engine light code plug in on those like a car? Sometimes you can read and clear a misfire code. Did you try switching plugs out on the trail?
    • Had scratchers down but probably didn't matter much. Wasn't overheating and temp on gauge stayed at 160. Another guy in club thought it might also be bad gas and a misfire settting off check engine. Ill see what they come up with when they plug into computer. As far as electronic reverse lots of problems with it on internet. Fuse wasn't blown and I also bought and changed the 2 relays that people have had problems with and still nothing. I think the Servo motor crapped out as those have had problems to. I just hope it doesn't take to long to fix as spring is around the corner  
    • Wow, sorry to hear all that.I call it the Northshore curse!  Did you have your scratchers down? Or do you think it's just a short somewhere?  😟
    • it takes some practice. I was skeptical at first also but friends did great on them so made the switch and I use them 95% of the time for gills and crappies now.  Still learning
    • Made it up to Silver Bay for a ride on Saturday. Got about 15-20 miles down trail and sled starts to miss and wants to die and check engine light comes on. Shut it off and look things over and everything looks OK and not overheating. Start back up and runs fine for about 10 miles and does same thing. Did this about 4 times till we got to Trestle Inn. Im thinking its bad gas so was going to go put some premium in it to see if that helps. Start machine and put in reverse and back up and hit button to take out of reverse and nothing happens. Reverse fail comes up on gauges not good. Only good thing was stranded in Trestle Inn parking lot instead of woods. Gave guy I was riding with my car keys to come back with my truck and trailer and went and drank beer for a couple hours. Finally get everything back to motel and get organized and come back out to get some stuff out of truck and step on back of trailer and it flips up. Someone must have helped themselves to my tilt trailer pin as it would have never fell out on its own. Had to run to town on Sunday and round up a pin for trailer and dropping off sled at dealer tomorrow. At least its still under warranty.  
    • Thanks Presidents for the day off!  😁   Went back over to the same trails by Orock and hit it pretty hard to burn off some of the carbon I built up pulling the grandkids and sleigh around the other day. The trails were groomed and not bad but the groomer seemed to have put some pretty deep grooves in the trails around the corners. Never really saw that before anywhere? 🤔 There were a few folks out but no where near last weekend. My top end rebuild seems to be breaking in pretty well and the compression has been going up the last few rides so hopefully I'm almost there. 🤗    
    • I picked up some impulse mayfly plastics and mud bug jigs. I have tried plastics in the past with mixed results. I expect good things from the impulse mayflys. It would be nice not to have to mess with live bait.
