Metro LETS - Clearwater Lake Results

Recommended Posts

Thanks much to B.J.'s Resort on Clearwater Lake for hosting tournament headquarters this year for our event! If you are ever in the area, they have some great tips on where to fish, maps, tackle, bait, rentals, etc. Look them up, they are on the west end of the lake (just North of the Lake Augusta channel).

Thanks again to Catch'N tackle and T.J.'s Tackle for the tackle prizes.

CONGRATS to team Jighead for their 1st place finish. You guys are doing something right for sure! They walked away with 1st place and a lifetime supply of Berkley Power worms from Catch'N tackle (maybe not life-time, but a huge pack), along with (2) $25 gift certificates for Catch'N tackle.

Congrats to Catch'N and Bob'N Stovetop for 2nd and 3rd place finishes. 2nd went to team Catch'N, and came down to the wire (broken via tie-breaker). Third went to Bob'N Stovetop with the only walleye and "Triple Play" for the day.

Congratulations to Crystal Connection, who came away with 4th place and a couple of great tackle packs from T.J.'s Tackle (including a wide assortment of Case Plastic baits).

This was by far the closest event we've had in the Metro series. All teams brought in nice fish and there wasn't a lot of weight separating the entire field. 1st place went down to a tie-breaker. Big fish was a 3 way tie. Congrats to everyone for finding some great fish. We easily broke the all time weight record for a Metro LETS event (and it wasn't from just the top couple teams, all teams weighed in nice baskets of fish).

The total weights for Clearwater are 214.4 lbs. of fish and 17.9 lbs. per active team (shattering the all time Metro record at Madison of 162.4 lbs. and 13.5 lbs. per active team).

Duhhhh....yea, I see it now.

It was good, a lot of surprises and a lot of fish on 2 fairly small lake (1 was 250 acres!)

I'm sure Paul will post soon

A close one smile.gif We had a lot of fun, the weather was awesome the whole weekend and the panfish sure were poppin'!! I thought that 30 pounds was going to be needed to win this one, but the larger bass were hard to find and the pike were pretty small as well. A three-way tie for big fish and a tie for first place, made things interesting at the end.

A special thanks to Mike for allowing some of us to stay at his place saturday night, you were a very good host, much appreciated. smile.gif

Here are a few pics from the weekend...

Those were Lance and I's that we weighed in the afternoon. Still can't believe the close results. Great event guys. Thanks again Mike for the hospitality....

See y'all at the river.

Actually Scott/Andy (taxman) may have had a 4 lb. bass now that I think about it. I know Chris/Andy and our 4 lb. fish were pike.

Well, we had a rather dissapointing finish, but a fun day despite boat troubles(I swear it'll be all fixed by the next one!) We musta caught at least 20 bass during the day, but most were only 12-14 inches long with the exception of our 3 that went 2lbs or so. Pike were elusive for us, although I did catch a big ugly bowfiun fishing for them! Good weights for just about everyone, I look forward to the next event!

    • That's interesting. I would think there would be too much commotion for loons, but apparently they get adapt.   About a month ago there was a wild turkey standing in the intersection of 9th & Marquette Ave downtown during the evening rush hour. As you can imagine it had no idea what to do or where to go, and it caused quite a bit of commotion and traffic backups.    
    • Yes, I would say the smallie action was good. A couple days we had to work for them. I was using my fly rod with a murdich minnow and was out catching the spinning guys. 
    • smallies biting for you guys pretty good? we were up there a couple of weeks ago and the fishing was pretty slow, except for the 10-12" walleyes; we were on little turtle lake in Mine centre, needless to say,  we are not going back there
    • Walleye fishing remains quite good with a nice mix of quality fish.  Caught these three Saturday afternoon in just a few hours. 17", 18", 19+". Fish were caught from 10 - 19 FOW, again all near tips of points.  Crawlers put more in the boat than leeches, but better have both along. Can't wait to get back.
    • Grackles, and to a lesser extent, red winged blackbirds, have taken over my feeders. They’ve pretty much scared everything else away, and they eat up everything I put out. Anything I can do to get rid of them? Aside from thistle, is there any other bird seed they won’t eat?
    • I never said that at all but my choice of "grill" or "smoker seems to bother you for some reason.   It's OK if you are a little bit jealous of my pellet smoker.....    
    • How does the cold smoke accessory work? I wouldn't fathom doing any this time of year or does it have a built in ice tray to keep foods cool?. If not any grill or smoker would do the trick in the cold. I'm with others,  having room to hang for long smokes works the best. It is a nice concept though.
    • The fatty was good! Got up at 6:30 am Friday morning to put it on the pellet grill.    
    • Ants are just trying to make a livin.
    • Buy an ant moat. Feeder hangs underneath it. Ants can’t cross the water. While I have never used this, I used to put my cup of grape jelly on a small plate, filled with water. Never had a problem with ants. So, in theory, the moat should work just the same.
