I hear ya, happened to me lots of times in tourneys too. On fish one day, gone the next. Can't say what he was doin. As i said if he allows it, it'll be on the board at my shop. I am sure it's been talked about already anyways.. Anyway before i get yelled at again or have someone complain, i better throw a fishing report in here.

One customer is getting some medium sized perch north of St. Catherine's Bay on nightcrawlers, with a plain gold hook deadstickn'.

Walleyes are on the reef tops & edges also.

So Rippnlips..........now that the tourney is over and the 'eye-opening' presentation did not produce the desired results for whatever reason for this guy;

Can you now open our eyes and share what he felt was working very well prior to the tournament and the cold front?

Heck... I have had it happen over night... just as a weekend sort of guy. Things change quick out there, and if you don't get a little lucky with changing gears, we have all been there, it is called fishing!

The idea that it can happen to a pro should be no shock at all.

I have pre-fished for many tournaments over the years. There were many times that I was on fish, only to have them disappear on tournament day. If you have fished tournaments, it has happened to you too.

I can really see this happening this past weekend on Winnebago. The walleye on this lake are very nomadic in the first place. Now you throw in a cold front, with a lot of wind and everything changes. I'm glad that I'm not reading about any fishermen drowning with that much wind.

FISHING REPORT

Conditions: Cloudy Air Temp: 66° - 70° F Water Temp: 61° - 65° F
Pulled planer boards around for a few hours late morning Saturday, not a rip. It was rolling pretty good out there with a south wind up to 20. Talked to one of the guys in the Cabela's tournament, he had two fish. Kind of funny, out of the remaining 10 boats he was the only one who didn't get a camera man. Probably because he was sponsored by Gander Mountain. About the time we pulled out the wind had shifted from the west and calmed down quite a bit. Sounds like it is tough going out there, not ready to give up yet on this year.

Clemm, out.

This is a few days old, but Tuesday and Wednesday ended up with 10 perch each day. Front of light house in neenah. Not huge number of fish, but some of the nicest perch I have ever caught. Caught most on crawlers and some on grubs.had to move quite a few times.

rippn … "A special "Good Luck" to Terry Wilson from North Dakota who I know is on big fish. His technique is an eye opener for Bago' as he shared it with me yesterday in the shop."

He finished after two days with three fish - 5.33 lb. (51st place out of 60).

I know it's a long shot, being in 8th place, but I'd like to see Ted Takasaki garner the win.

The ten in the finals are: Mark Courts, Korey Sprengel, Jacob Ell, Kevin McQuoid, Tommy Skarlis, Robert Cardenas, Ross Grothe, Ted Takasaki, Jason Doyon and Tom Keenan.

Good Luck to the Cabela's NWT Pro's today on Ol' lady Bago. I have had a bunch of Pro's stop in the shop the last 3 days. Robert Cardenas is a class act guy. A special "Good Luck" to Terry Wilson from North Dakota who I know is on big fish. His technique is an eye opener for Bago' as he shared it with me yesterday in the shop. I can only hope the lures I got in for him will put him in the top 10 on Saturday. I cannot release details now, but after the tourney it may be posted on my fishing reports board in the shop after I talk to him.

Walleye fishing has been very tight lipped because of the tourney the next 3 days. Fish are being caught and some big ones too. All I can say is "GOLD"..

Perch have been biting fairly "ok" Brothertown, and quinney have been alright. South down by Fishermnan's has had some boat traffic, but haven't heard much. Rosy Reds, Crappie Minnows and Butterworms are all good baits to have in the boat this time of year.
