Sanford/Wixom Lake week night tournaments
« on: April 09, 2014, 07:21:22 AM »

Is anyone interested in doing these again?  They use to be rotating the lakes each week and go on Wednesday from 6-9 PM.  I would like to see that go again if possible.

I would be interested if these started happening again. Those were fun to do when a decent amount of boats would show up

It was $20 per boat if I remember correctly.  Could fish up to two people per boat.  Tom, do you have a contact for who did it before?

I talked to one of the guys that's was normally at those. He said it is probably not happening. Nbaa has taken over the weeknight events, most those guys that were apart of the old Tuesday night thing have gone over to nbaa

If it was $20 per boat with 100% payout, the payout would probably still be better then NBAA...  :D If anyone just wants to meet up and just fish for fun let me know, I plan on trying to make it out there once a week if I can and just work on learning the lake better. It's the closest lake to my house so my girlfriend and I are going to try and get out there more this year.

I think I will be on Sanford on C&R opener. Not sure if it will be that productive, but we will see. I plan on Slowly running jerkbaits, Carolina's, and maybe break out some blade baits on the weed lines next to the channels.

I will be on Sanford possibly both days for C&R. The lake can be tough early but you can find some good ones. Water clarity will probably suck for a little bit but I guess that depends on how much rain we get between now and then

If we could get a handful of guys, we could always start up our own weeknight thing and see what happens. At the end of these a couple years ago we were just weighing fish in the bag with a handheld digital scale. Doesn't have to be anything too serious. I could possibly find a couple more boaters to do it

It gives me a chance to get out and fish for a few hours... I am in.  I have an extra weigh bag we can use and a scale if nobody has the pro series scale.  I suggest we keep it at $20/boat and 5 fish limit.  Switching lakes is a cool idea too.  I recommend using the launch at the store though.  The launch at the beach is tricky (maybe its just me).

What do you guys think?

Kram, where abouts are you at?  I live 3 miles from the DNR launch on Wixom.

I wouldn't mind using the launch at the store. It's cheaper and at the county they close the gates at sundown or sometimes earlier

I'm up for it as well.. I never launched at the store you guys are talking about. Always from the beach. Gonna have to let me know where it is. I plan on doing a TON of fishing this summer in both Sanford and Wixom, and some in Secord. I live in Auburn so I'm just a small ride from all of em. I'm not familiar with any of them except Sanford. And in Sanford it is probably only 10% lol.. I was always a big walleye bay guy since I used to live on it the prior 8 years up until last August. I bought a brand new Nitro Z-7 Sport (wish it was a regular Z-7 but my old lady wasn't in agreement and needed something to lay out on in the summer). Lol..... Anyways it's rigged to the britches..

I'm just west of Bay City in Monitor Township, about 30 minutes from Sanford. I wouldn't be able to get to Wixom in time for anything but I would definitely do a few at Sanford. The store launch for sure, I am buying a season pass there this year if I can track down the owners and if they are still doing the season pass thing.  If I remember correctly they used to do a season pass for like $50, so it's well worth it if they are still doing that. I will be fishing Sanford quite a bit this year, really want to learn the lake better. I can usually make it to the launch at Sanford by about 5:40.

Great!  Hopefully we can get a few other people to come as well.  I might be able to get few folks from the club as well.  Put the word out guys and let us know if anyone else wants to get in on this.

The season pass at the store last season was $55.  The owners I believe go out of state for the winter so they should be back soon. That ramp was getting a little un even last season so hopefully they fix that. I'll contact a few other guys and maybe we can make this happen

Do we want to keep it one lake or alter it with Wixom?

I can do either, but if its at the fallout of losing others I can manage with just Sanford. Plenty of water.. Can all have a few beers afterwards.. would be a lot of fun if we can get it together

I would only fish Sanford but I won't be able to fish every week anyways.  Maybe just every couple of weeks for me so no big deal if you guys want to fish Wixom.  Thats a fun lake too, jI ust can't get there in time from work.  I will just show up when I can at Sanford.  Should be a good time!

The couple guys I talked to would maybe be able to do it here and there. One said he is fishing a lot of tournaments already and doesn't want to make his fish tight lipped by catching them all the time. The other guy is not sure because of his work schedule. I wouldn't be able to make every week either depending on my work schedule.

I'm thinking it might be a good idea to just see when the guys on here can make it and just do these get togethers when we can. It doesn't have to be a tourney even just a handful of days spent out on the water
