TFFA thanks for posting the fish and names I had the name wrong for the person who caught the biggest walleye, Johnny Miller, I think he is about 11 years old he was pretty happy with his fish.

Just checked the weather wind 0.0 temp - 27.6 good day to work inside!

It is great to see Claus is remembered by this tournament. He loved to catch crappies thru the ice. I used to take the river trip when he owned the Midway Bar. The guides were Ed Robinson Ed Beechler and Jim Lynch. What a great group of guys. I hope to make it up for the tournament someday.

Jeff, I have to respectfully disagree with you, I don’t think the powder would be an issue.

I can see from your post you’ve got it all wrong, you may be a good fisherman but as a target shooter well…

Here’ my secrete to a perfect score please keep it to yourself:

Shoot the group THEN draw the circle

See you out on the water, AND OF COURSE THANKS FOR ALL THE GREAT POSTS. Big Smile

Nice turn out for the fisheree this weekend, a thank you to Marvin and Connie at Donner's Bay, this is the second year of having the tourney inside instead of the tent. Worked out great, the morning temp started at -24 but it warmed up fast. The fish were cooperative for a number of fisherman. Young nick had the biggest walleye at 22-1/4" second and third were twin 21-3/4" caught by Scott. I don't remember all the names the TFFA will probably post them. There was a 27" northern lot of nice perch and crappies. I was the fish measurer I didn't ask locations but it sounded like the best walleye fishing was river channels in 18' and a lot of crappies were caught in the 26' range suspended almost half way up. Thanks to everyone who stopped in.

A digression from fishing ,I know there are a lot of viewers with diverse interests. Anyone know where you can get some varget. I got a new barrel on my 1000 yard target rifle and a load dialed in with 43 grains of varget, been all over can't find any. Hoping not to have to start over with a new powder. Amazing that most of the best barrel makers are in Wisconsin: Krieger, Broughton, Bartlein, Obermeyer, Brux, Rock Creek. The one on my target rifle is a Krieger I also have a Rock Creek on a hunting rifle that shoots 1/2 moa. Call or e-mail.

Fished yesterday with a group from Iowa in the afternoon. We had steady action all afternoon on tip ups but a lot of flags with minnows gone and no fish. I think we were getting bit by pan fish or small walleyes we did catch some rock bass and two bullheads, strange to catch them on the TFF yet alone on tip ups. We caught a few walleyes mostly 5-8' the pan fish bites were in deeper holes 15-20'.

Don't know if it got above zero yesterday but the wind laid down to nothing in the afternoon with the sun out and a campfire it was an enjoyable afternoon. Thanks for the trip Nick, hope to see you guys next year.

Unless the wind kicks up anyone wanting to drive off of fisherman's this weekend with a truck should be able to get out. You can thank the guy with the white truck, when we left the landing on snowmobiles there was a deep wind hardened drift when I came in it had been shoveled by hand, hope that guy caught a few fish!

Fished today and tomorrow with the mercer kids in the tournament on the Chetek chain ready to hit the sack. Where was high school ice fishing when I was a kid.

Hope the show is well attended good luck Mike.
