FYI to all:  Our fearless leader has given bogus information!

The Wooded Acres Campground phone number is:

989-422-3413

The message on their machine gives Dave's cell phone number.  I'm not going to post it here... that wouldn't be prudent on my part.

I would strongly consider attending if I could find someone to ride up with that Fri mid morning or early afternoon. Sharing gas and room. I am in Redford.

Just made my reservation at the camp ground.  It was like $22 a night for the tent and a pull thru spot with electric.  Not bad.  And he says that for us he's not going to strictly enforce the check out time since we are going to be kinda busy at that time!

Anyone looking to share a room, maybe a ride up? I'm planning on leaving the Flint area very early Friday morning, fishing all day, coming home Sunday. Let me know.

Fishing was very tough.  I caught all my fish in the canals some males on beds and some crusing the weed line.  When they were on the bed I caught them on a brovarney swim jig with a revolution bait kick'r craw.  When they were cruising I caught them on a wacky rigged senko.  The wacky rig seemed to make a differance because my nonboater was throwing one texas rigged all day with only one fish then he switch to wacky for the last hour and added 3 more fish to his side of the livewell.

I caught 4 out of 5 in the channels, mainly under docks and boats. Fished a wacky rigged worm most of the day. Caught a ton of fish, but no monsters, but for only my second TBF tourney, I'm thrilled with my finish and excited and honored to have made the state team.

 I caught all of my fish on the main lake. I had three decent smallies on beds that I found the day before, I caught them pretty quick in the morning. Went to my second spot and caught my big fish which was a largemouth on a C-flash crankbait, I also caught a couple more smallies there on a crankbait. I went to a spot that I found Monday when I was there that had some smallies on beds. I wound up catching a good one there Im sure was off a bed. When I was there on Monday I found alot of smallies on beds on the west shoreline. Unfortunately with all of the wind they had during the week it was all muddied up and had pushed all the shallow fish off their beds, the one that I caught over there was in deeper water. I wound up catching some more on the crankbait but nothing that would help. All in all it was a pretty good day of fishing.

When you are in any contest you should work as if there whereto the very last minute a chance to loose it.

I was there on Friday prefishing. Caught 3 keeper size smallies and two nice walleye, all on a redeye shad. All off the south shore. On Saturday, I defered to my boater, Jason Knapp, and we started on the west side of the lake. I started with the redeye because I had success the day before. Nothing. Jason started catching them with a combination of fluke and senco. I switched. LOL. I caught a couple decent smallies. We then moved into the channels, throwing sencos under and around anything we could find. Lots of smaller size largies. I did manage one keeper. Jason was culling by this time. Late in the day, I still had only 3 fish on board. I was getting desperate. I had tried everything in my tackle bag. We headed over toward the launch around 1:45. I told Jason, "right over there is where I caught that one really nice one on Friday". We headed in that direction. I ended up catching my biggest of the day. Another smallie, on a Husky Jerk, of all things. I threw my arms off for the next 20 mins, but could not find that 5th fish anywhere. I felt pretty good about the tourney. It was definatly a tough bite for most. I ended up in the top half of the fishermen somewhere. I want to thank my boater, Jason for the time of my life. It was an awesome day, and he is one heck of a fisherman, as the results show. He was very helpful and I learned a great deal. All in all, it was a tremendous experience.

I did the stupid senko thing in the stupid channels.  Culled once and still didn't hit 8 pounds.
