Just got back from the tourney. Was a great time, especially rippin down the lake on the Polaris, man i love that..... Anyways about the fishing. It was fair at best for us on Macs. No real big fish had a few in the 27 to 30 inch range, but they cant be weighed cause tourney rules are between 20 and 38 inches can not be weighed. Caught a few under 20, but werent big enough to make a check. Rainbow trout was great, but very small. Biggest out of probably 100 was about 1lb, most were 6 to 8 inches. 2 small browns, and no kokanee.

Had 1 really big fish hooked on Saturday and faught it for about 20 minutes, never saw it, but i had caught a 29 inch 11 lb 3 oz about 15 minutes earlier, and that was nothing compared to this other, but didnt get her in.

Pearl white 3" tubes with the tenticles dipped in chartreuse, and a small piece of sucker meat was the ticket for us. We fished an underwater hump in about 35 ft of water, Graphed way more than we caught, which from what i was hearing was the norm for many people.

It was alot of fun, and i will definatley do it again, and hopefully collect a check.LOL!!!

That sounds like a fun tourny, nice job on that 11lber.  I'm going to have to make it to that one next year. ;)

I fished the tourny as well and no check for me either. Worked my way to a grand slam on the first  day but couldn't catch a bigger bow or brown to make it count, ended up with 5.28 lbs for my slam. Oh well maybe next year!!
