Mike, you are da man for putting this together. That was a very comprehensive post and included a lot of useful information. The founders of this event have really put together an impressive set of rules and have managed to run a very tight ship. Congrats to all and looking forward to seeing you out there next week.

I second a vote for Tony on this one. He was out there on Saturday when I hauled in my 24 bass and he knows where I was catching them and what I was catching them on. That might be a good advantage to have come Saturday. Looks like some warm weather as well. Good luck to all!! :mrgreen:

The field entries are getting so big I may have to bet on the field.... :wink:

Fishing for a "Few bucks" has taken on a new meaning in 2009.......$$$$$$$$$$

Mother nature agrees that we have had a long winter!!!!

Thursday Sunny 72....South winds 20mph
Friday Sunny and 78.... :shock: South winds 20mph
Saturday Sunny in the 70's ..South winds 15mph(Perfect Deep lake pre-spwan weather)

Big time south winds will warm things up....Pre-Spawn in the mid west??.....Let's get out there and get'em :D

Good luck to all!!!!!

Just make sure all of your trolling motor batteries are fully charged. A south wind on Deep Lake will have those motors running constantly.

I see that Accuweather has winds of 24mph with gusts up to 41 mph. The Tribune is showing winds of 14 to 32mph. I really hope it isn't that bad. Maybe that wind will wait until later in the day so you guys can get the tournament in.

Yeah, the wind is brutal there. Between all the gear, my weight, batteries, cooler and terminal gear, that trolling motor is hard at work. I usually bring two batteries, but that barely gets me through the tourney. We may have to be more strategic and hit only certain spots. We shall see.
