I'll be there.  Are you fishing it with LJ?  I'm hoping to bring my brother out of retirement, but we'll see.  Really looking forward to some good paydays.  I think this may be the first thing that really affects Russ' numbers.  I may fish some of his, but maybe not all of them, don't know, got all winter to think about it.

Ive been telling you guys this for years. Lake Drive is the top money tournament in Michigan. Ive fished every year of the lake drive and they are a first class operation. I would recommend them to anyone.

Fishing them with Luke.  Looking forward to taking money from all of you. LOL!!   :D  This should be a very competitive series...

One note to make... get there early at the Hardy event... no way the parking lot holds 75 rigs plus non-boater vehicles.  Late comers will be parking half a mile away in the field near the entrance.  In fact.. if it's ok with the directors I will be using a different ramp to avoid this issue.

I am going to try and fish Lake Drive this year, its an easy decision when comparing to the other trails in the area. I like the Northern schedule more but the Hardy and Muskegon tournaments are the day after a BFL which I plan on fishing too so I am going to have to shoot for the Southern. My question is since they split to two divisions will this make room to get into the Southern division? I know in the past there was a wait list to get in so will this be the case this year as well?

Just talked to Jeff.  You may use a different ramp if you wish.

In the words of my boy from the WFN original series Gillznfinz "It's on like Donkey Kong Mother Fishes". 

In my opinion the Northern will open a few spots for the Southern but either way both will fill fast. 

TCook I'd get a hold of Jeff Uetrecht @ 517-238-4651 and I'm sure he will let you know what the best plan of action would be.  You can't really beat a tournament circuit with the best payouts in the state run by one of the most service orientated customer friendly businesses in the state!

To tell you the truth I dont think this will open up very many if any spots in the southern. Not to many of the guys that fish it live up this way. Im shooting for both but it looks like Im going to have to wait until after the southern openhouse to see if I can get in to the Northern. Either way it looks like this is going to turn out great for everyone that fishes it.

Are the Lake drive tournaments team or draw.  I read about the Hardy one talking about boater nonboater vehicles and parking so I just had to ask.  Are Lake drive team tournament format or draw????

thanks

TCook, I doubt this will open up southern spots because as the rules read if you give up your spot in the southern tour you and things do not go as planned or sponsors don't back the northern in 2011 then it will be discontinued and you don't get your spot in the southerns back, the waiting list to fish was rather long. You can enter a random draw to fish both if one or the other does not fill. Hands down the BEST tournaments in Michigan! I hope you guys come out and fill the field, just leave enough spots in the northern for lgmouth and I to get a random draw in both.

I agree with LGmouth After seeing what money they brought to the table last year for southern guys, Lake Drive  Marine is creating an opportunity for More Fisherman to contribute to a tourney that will actually have a pay back that would be more than gas money and gift certificate to a bait  shop 50 miles away. $173.00 entry per tourney +75 Boats x 1 Payback per 5 Boats =No Brainier .
I will be there!
