thereis not enough room to get your boat on plane after going under the railroad bridge in the creek[/quote]

grouch, are you frikkking kidding????? Last year during the week we were there, there was the PWT going on, out of Stoney Point. One day we were heading back into Cass, just hitting the mouth of the channel, where all the logs are, and were going slow. All of a sudden, a red ranger comes at us going full bore. Because of the reeds, I don't think he saw us. At the last minute he cut the wheel and missed us by only a couple of feet. By the time I turned the boat around he was long gone. Latter that day, I tried to register a complaint at the weight station, and believe it or not, they did not care. I shudder to think what may have happened if he miss calculated.

Yes ffishman, that's why I personally despise tournaments and the people who fish them. They are some of the rudest and uncaring fishermen on the water. I have heard many similar stories from various sources and all sound the same. Other than the resorts and the towns who sponsor them, no one likes to fish a lake if a tournament is going to be there at the same time.

Glad to hear the juices are starting to flow for the anticipation of a great week or two of fishing. Mrs. Col and I are doing fine down south where the water temperature is 74 degrees and the fish are on the bite. The water now is a LITTLE stained which helps everything.

Good luck to all of you, have safe trips and if the Good Lord is willing, we will try to join you next year. You all take care now,

Colonel Ron

Sounds like fine conditions Col. Post some pics sometime. I went fishing yesterday myself. SW WI. CRYSTAL clear water. Water temps in the low 60s. Saw 15 or 16 muskies. Boated 2. (1 dink, 1 36 incher) Lost 3 or 4 small muskies. Great day to be out.

Now I start getting ready for Cass. And after this weekend, I'll be waiting for the next big rain. Then it'll be time to go crawler hunting! Smile

If it were up to me, I would ban all tournaments. When they started, maybe they were fun, but now they are driven by greed.

Well, you are getting your wish. The PWT is down and out, the only one I participate in is Muskie Tournaments. I know they run too hard and fast, but the times, normally late fall, won't disturb too many people.

The driving force with many of these, Sorry Chamber of Commerce, is the $$$$$$ they bring into the area with the resorts, grocery stores, gas stations and bait shops, licenses, on and on. Cass Lake could use a few more bucks injected into their economy.

Hey, that's why they make chocolate and vanilla. Everyone has their opinion. The reason why I participate in Muskie Tournaments is that muskie fisherpeople 95% of the time release everything they catch anyway, and it does not go in the livewell.

You are right, Col. Ron, the muskie fishermen are different. I've never been disturbed by one of them. I've seen some of them catch and release fish and they seem to do a great job of caring for the fish they caught. Sometimes they don't even lift the fish out of the water, just a picture and gone. They don't come close to you and travel slowly from place to place. No big wakes or waves.
