Nice Job guys!

Great time at the tournament it looks like, Deep will look alot better when you have 12-15 boats out there..lol

Be sure to stress boater safety when it comes around !! And go over safety precautions before everyone launches.

But Back to wwd, Nice Job to everyone who attended and can't wait for the pictures!

:D

Ah I look like a fool in that picture and as you can see my hands were frozen so I couldn't feel my fingers which resulted in half the fish being covered up by my fingers. When you guys have the deep lake tourney does any1 have room for 2 people on their boat at all? I would gladly put some money in for your pocket! I wish I could retake that pic lol

Even though I didn't catch a thing, great to get out in the elements. Got to spend time with good friends. I also got to see a hawk, a blue heron, and there was even a coyote sighting (nice meeting you Mike).

The above was just a flowery cop-out for me not catching anything.

P.S. When did "skunk" points drop from 35 to 30 :?:

Skunk points are determined by the number of people that show up. To day there were 15 participants. Last time there were only 14. Every extra person that show up drops the last place points by 5. So I guess if more than 20 people show it would be 0 points.

Ya..and the best part Dean was that Tony caught it ....lost it... then caught it again... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Tony got some skills and dam he is consistant year round..Well done Tony on the big Fish.

Augy and Tony ARE the WWD masters...............Picked'em 1-2
in event #1 and again in event #2 ...why not :wink:

#1cubsfan , 2:1 , Last minute winner in Event #1. Solid top finishes in most events in 2007, can't pick against
Augy , 5:2 , Nipped at the wire in last ....looks to hang on for the win in this hotly contested event


Great day fishing....in the dead of winter in Chicago land (but wind is not good at the WWD it was tough most of the day)...but fun as always.... good to see everyone...breakfast was good...but our math is bad?

Nice to meet Mike and Tom

Even Jason stopped by...(he can't help himself...LOL.)..and no one got sued..... :wink:

Thanks Doc for running around with the frozen scale...I think Tony is 100% DUE as an offical for the next Evnet#3...(got to slow him down some way :roll: )

A fun "safely.... executed tourny" opps..sorry "Friendly Get together" as they all have been.......

"Friendly Get together" fishing is fun !!!!

Even Big Al got got an 8 pounder :shock: ....BUT.... is was a DUCK !!!!! :lol:

until next time guys...and there is always a next time !!!!!!!!

P.S....remember... it's just fishing !!

burrrrr!! it was brutal out there but we battled through the elements with laughter and some great fishing action. we had some bruisers pulled out of the wwd this round. 3 fish around 3lbs!

if i'm not mistaken, i think this round produced the heaviest total bag of any event. gotta check the stats from last year. it has to be for all wwd events anyway. any math junkie want to take a crack at putting some statistics together??

after all the discussion we've had for the future of this tournament, i think we all agree why we do this. it's sooo much fun hanging out with you guys. we have a wonderful group of guys that really do care for one another and these tournaments provide an opportunity to meetup on a monthly basis and "fish amongst friends". points, titles, $$ was never the reasons for starting this tournament. we all know this.

with that said, i think we can also all agree that there is a natural draw for us men in that we yearn for competition. that's what we do. it's how we were designed. it's why we love sports. watch any nature show and you'll most likely see two male animals fighting over a chick! lol that's what makes us different from females. we got that smaller brain doing all thinking for us and jr has a lot to prove. LOL :lol:

we ain't no pro tournament anglers but it sure is fun pretending to be one isn't?! :mrgreen:

can't wait to fish with you guys again next month! maybe we'll have some open water by end of march.

any suggestions on the location for round 3?

Well atleast I didn't get the skunk but still upset I haven't come close to winning anything at all!!! That wind killed a lot of the fishing yesterday! If we do have the tourney here again next month I will win something for sure! Hehe perhaps total weight or big fish? Who knows but even if I don't win, its just all for fun. Like augy said I get pissed over entering a 20 doller tourney and I get mad about a hog not hitting my crawler while its on his face, but imagine paying 500 to enter the tourney and not having that dam fish hit your bait? Hmmm now that would suck! Once again guys nice to see you out there guys. And nice job Tony on that fish man!! I still am shocked he hit it 3 times! First time he spit it, second time snapped line, and you nailed him 3rd time. I tried to give it a shot for him but dam he wanted your crawler! Ha.

Fun times for sure, even though it was not the best weather conditions. And Tony did have that big hawg on twice before finally landing it on the third try. All within about 5 minutes. Makes you wonder why the big ones there quite often don't go for the bait, but the one that he caught did 3 times in 5 minutes. :?

Congrats to Augy and Tony. I stayed till 930 and no one had a kepper yet, boy you guys must have been on fire after i left. Was great to match some faces with their names sorry i didnt get a chance to talk to you all but a little too cold for me to stick around. Gotta say i see why you guys get out was nice friendly competition.Everybodt seemed to have their spots and stuck to them.Good to see Matt honing his WWD skills for the next tourney.
