Sitting at work and leaning towards the door. Got the boat hooked to the SUV in the parking lot, just begging to head up HWY 10. I am meeting two club members at the Maple Grove Gander Mountain, we will ride up together, hopefully they are both on time, so that I can at least drive around Fish Trap tonight, as I have never been on the lake.
This is a pivotal weekend for the Gopher Bassmasters. For guys looking to fill the last state team spot and the alternate spot, these two tournaments decide that. It is also tournaments 5 & 6 out of 8 for next year’s state team. And probably the most exciting thing….. we kick off our Match Tournament fishing this weekend.
I am looking forward to these tournaments, sounds like both of these lakes have good fish, and everyone should get fish. Size is the key. A few years back, we had a tournament on Shamineau that I won with 20.5lbs for 5 bass. That was about 5 weeks earlier and I cost of those fish pitchin’ & flippin’ a Lake Fork Craw Tube in the Reeds & Cattails. The trick will be to locate those fish this time of year. An added dynamic is that we are fishing it as a hole course, which will make it even more exciting.
If all goes well, I will catch my father who is in first place y 2lbs.
