No worries... I snagged 'em all in the side. ;D ;D

I will be up there at the bait shop as early as 5:30 am tomorrow morning, but no later than 6:00 am. We will be starting at 7 am and fishing until weigh-in time which is yet to be undetermined. Give me some input on how long you want to fish. I am definitely leaning toward 3pm.

LET'S GO GET 'EM!

Valascus said there would be a beating.... he just didn't know it would be his own. ;D ;D

We ended up with four teams (boats). Not a great turnout in numbers but the comraderie made up for that. The bite was tough once again, yet my partner, Doug and I managed to get a limit (6) by weigh-in. We targeted main lake areas with stumps using a jig/craw (me) and a salt craw (Doug) for a total just a smidge over 15 lbs. with a 4 lb. 2 oz heavy for BB and 1st. Illinoisbasser and jaskoh had one fish, caught on a LC crankbait, over 2 lbs. for 2nd place. And cart7 and Valascus also had one under 2 lbs. that I believe was also caught on a crankbait. Although more boats would have made a better payout, a good time was had by all and I hope to see everyone again in two weeks on Oct. 6 for the next one.

It was tough, Val and I each had a keeper fish come unbuttoned at the boat.  The forecasted 10-15 mph wind from the NE never happened, most of the morning was dead calm and it got pretty hot, at least for the first day of fall.  We caught a bunch of small fish.  Val and I were catching them on a worm bite but the fish just weren't committing all that well to taking the worm.  They'd pick it up, drop it, push it some, then take it again, if you were lucky they eventually pick it up so you could set the hook.  I got frustrated with that and switched to a tube, sluggo and a jig.  Nothing on them.  Most of my fish came on a Regular Rat-L-trap, a floating Rat-L-trap and a Rapala Glass shad.

Hopefully we'll see more guys out in Oct.

"SO...who is ready for an administering of a good beating tomorrow?     ANYONE?!? ANYONE!?!"  

Oh, oh, pick me... ;D. Yeah, Rich (dink), laid the beatdown on everyone. I believe he had a 6 fish limit of over 15 lb between himself and his partner Doug. Rich also landed the two hawgs of the day of 3lb 15oz. (I think), and 4lb 2oz. Second place got one fish that was 2lb 10oz. Glen (cart7) got our only keeper to the boat...and when I say keeper, he was just barely a keeper. We didn't bother weighing it, but I would estimate about a pound-ish. If we would have landed those two keepers that came unbuttoned at the boat, we may have gotten second. Wash Co. is a good lake. It is a few feet low right now, but boy...when it gets some water, there are some prime fishy spots up there. Tough day of fishing, but fun nonetheless.

I really wanna come back out there again in two weeks. We will see how that goes. I feel I need to get some redemption. :)

Hi All!

I have been lurking around this site for quite awhile and finally decided to post. This tourney sounds like fun! A friend from work and I are planning on making it to this one. We just started into Bass fishing last year, so we won't be any competition. This would be the first and only tournament for either of us.

Just a few questions:

What is the cost?

I might have a boat to use, but if not, what does it cost to rent one?

I live in St. Louis and fish alot at Busch's Wildlife (because I don't have a boat!). If anyone wants to get together some time, out there, let me know.

Thanks for the info cart7. I'll start posting on the new thread.

Jason,

I usually go out thursdays after work (around 4:00pm). I've fished 34 and 35 from boats and 6, 9, 10, 16, 31 or 32 and 33 from the bank. Not sure if I will make it today or not.

Do you get a boat when you go? What days are you normally there?

Yeah, I get a boat when I am up there.  I usually go Weds or Thurs nights after work.  I will be up there today but I haven't decided which lake yet.  If you see a guy with a Blue DCS hat on feel free to introduce yourself if you head up there.  I didn't get to fish last week.  Do you think the bass are in transition from summer to fall pattern or do you think they are full blown summer pattern still?

I didn't make it. I hope you did well.

As far as patterns go, I'm not the one to ask.

I can barely catch anything when I go! I usually don't start catching them till the sun sets and the small ones will hit anything that moves. ;D
