Multi Specie Event....

This past Thursday I was on the water for a large corporate event where several guides were partnered together with two others to fish with them for the day.  Each individual in the boat was competing against all the others for the largest Northern, Bass, and Walleye.  The guides were in charge of measuring and recording each individuals catch and hoping their fisherman would catch the largest.  The tourney was from 1-5 in the afternoon, and if you like sweating without any activity and feeling like passing out, that was the day for you.  We started our trip by trolling to catch some pike and get that specie taken care of, and as you can see, we landed some fairly large ones.  They each had a few fish in the 5 to 8 lb category, and although I couldn't stay to see the results, I would have to say they would have been close to the top in the pike division.  We then switched to bass and only had small ones hitting our baits.  basstourneys%20003.jpgThe heat was almost too much to handle, and we definitely were ready for 5 o'clock to roll around.  Until next time, Keep on livin the Dream!
