The end of September

The summer has once again flown by. I will always remember this summer for the odd fish patterns and weather. It wasn't always cooperative, and neither were the fish. I will also remember my accomplishments with the two tournament wins on Minnetonka and Whitefish.

I have been drawn to be in the 2005 Fort Frances Canadian Bass Championship on July 17-24, 2005. I'll be fishing for $50,000! It's great news, considering I was one of 141 people chosen for the top 35 spots.

The end of September brought great walleye fishing on the weed lines. Two nights in a row I caught over 20 walleyes with numerous fish in the 18"-23" range. Now that we're well into October and the hunting season the bite has slowed for me. My time is obviously split between fishing and hunting this time of year, leaning more towards hunting. The last time I was out fishing was on Sunday the 17th, and it snowed. We boated one small muskie and one 3 lb. largemouth. With better weather forecasted I may get out one last time, but it's not looking good since I am selling my boat.

 I am also going to be busy with my girlfriend Joni. She and I have a lot planned before ice fishing guide trips get rolling.

With that said, I would like to invite everyone to try and get their ice trips booked now. The window of opportunity is small, and the days are numbered. I have about half (or more) of my winter booked. It should be a good ice fishing season with multiple year classes of walleyes in Waconia now maturing. So go ahead and e-mail me or call and I will set-up the most phenomenal ice fishing experience of your life!
