  1. Eric is closing in on 90" already, that # would win 90% of all Kayak tourneys and that would be large mouth bass, this guy is doing it with smallies, dude is a pro, I didn't even have the balls to sign up this time around; however there is another guy that is within 10" or so of catching him, two weeks left.
  2. Yea I ran into Kevin V who is the general mgr of both or was, now just in Rockford, which I had to drive to a few times this spring. He said the Aurora store hasn't made any money in a few years so they decided to shut it down. I did like the selection & convenience of the Aurora location though, and they were really good about returning stuff as well.
  3. that guy could catch a fish anywhere
  4. I will be attending as well along with two other people to help out, observe, or what ever you need, always wanted to attend this event, finally get to

    Fox open

    Where are all the kayak fishermen ?? This Sunday is the Fox Open tourney and it is lacking sign ups. I know what your thinking Eric probably has it wrapped up but he cant win them all and is going to have an off day sometime this century. Bart, Mark, Jim J, Paul T, John G.????? Eric posted a link to sign up in his last post, Rockton is giving away a Nucanoe Flint series Kayak is they hit 15 sign ups, everyone is eligible to win this just by signing up, 1000$ value. Get signed up so they don't cancel, I want a shot at the title !!!
  7. All kinds of good input on this thread, I think what type of water you are going to fish is really important for the different style yaks. I mostly agree with Eric's thoughts; however if you ever plan on fishing 500-1000 acres lakes you better be rigged up exactly like the picture he posted if not more. I have fished in the KBL for the last 3 years and I'm getting left behind & having trouble staying competitive because I'm paddle only, most of the people fishing in this league have a pedal drive and or a small battery powered motor. Good luck.
  8. I was curious if any body can offer any information on fishing in the Knoxville stream related or lakes (possible guide service), I will be spending several days there on the weekend of March 10. I have done some research on my own with hopes of wading some local streams but was hoping one of my fellow ISA members might help narrow down some ideas and or what to expect this time of year in that region. Any help and or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
  9. I thougtht you turned your PM thing off years ago, something guys wanting your spots or giving your a hard time I forgot our conversation
  10. The Rat is awesome, made by Spro, picked up one this spring the action on that thing is unbelievable and some how it gives off a glow in the water especially in stained water but not sure how it does it though. Do you have a vip to McGraw or what, pm me the password for that place, I owe it one, got skunked there earlier this year, did not think it was possible.
  11. Thanks guys for the info, especially about all the tourneys that happen in the month of may. I may have a change of heart & work is giving me grief about taking additional time off during our busy month's but I was wondering if these areas can be fished in the fall or do they move to deep water ? I may just go up in the fall, its beautiful up there that time of year anyways.
  12. Thanks Ed I no idea about the tourneys.
  13. Just over a year ago I was invited to attend a fund raising event for a local high school that I have no loyalties except the free dinner & open bar that came with the ticket. Truth be told its pretty fancy evening with formal dress and all. As I was enjoying my cocktail and looking at the tremendous amount of gift baskets, auction items to bid on, of course they have one for a one night stay at an upscale bed in breakfast in Door County. My mind went to catching trophy smallmouth when I looked at this place and never dreamed I would win the bid, I mean really not one other person bid on it the rest of the night ?? So $220 later on a Sunday overnight overstay, I need to use this thing before it expires. Looking for contacts or information on where to fish. I have a 16' alumacraft boat I will be bringing with. I really want to stay close to shore, don't care for big water with my boat. I will also throw waders in as well in case of windy condition. Going to go this up coming month for pre-spawn. I know several guys in the club are very familiar with this area. Ed & I talked briefly about some places to fish. Any advice or local guide info I can get would be great.
  14. Thanks to all that who worked to make this a great blowout, really enjoyed the speakers, great food, and comradery with fellow ISA members. Also would like to thank Jim J for keeping his cool while announcing the auction items while the table of drunk assholes where rude, disruptive during the whole thing. Sorry for the language but if you sat near them you would understand, hopefully they will be not be asked to come back & one guy even won vexan rods, OMG !!
