Right now, the 2012 Fall MadWags Memorial Members Tournament West is scheduled for Sunday September 30th. I would prefer to go where the most members want to go, can catch some bass and enjoy themselves. I realize there is no one date or lake over there that will make everyone happy.

I just want to have good participation because it does take a fair amount of effort to put the event together. If you are likely to fish the event, please choose two lakes you would most like to fish during the event on September 30, 2012.

If you like, please share in this thread why you think one or both of your choices are the best choices thinking about everyone having the best chance to catch fish and enjoy their weekend. I will let this go for a while and then make the best choice based on all factors.

Help stop invasive spcies. Don't move fish between unconnected bodies of water. Clean, drain and dry your boat before launching on another water body.

I chose Manistee.  10+ fish over 4 lbs, 4 fish over 5 lbs, and a 6-4 this past fall is all the reason I need!   We caught so many fish up there it should be illegal!  It's also closer for most people, and given the price of gas that could be a major factor for participation.

My "backup" would be Mona... good fall smallie lake and it's close to home!

I chose two lakes I've heard great things, and I've never fished before. I love checking out new lakes.

I don't see a box for Hardy on the list!

For some reason, some people get upset and a little wound when I mention putting Hardy on the list. Some are happy though...? I guess... I could still add it??

Keep that POS Hardy Pond off the list!!!!!   :o
Such harsh words for a place that everyone wants to be in the spring.  The fishing has only improved up there. 

thedude

who's voting for cadillac and mitchel? seriously? they aren't bad lakes, but seriously?  portage, manistee, skeg - still good choices for the fall.

If Hardy cant be on there Skeg is the place to be everyone can come in with 20+

TheFishinPollock

my pick would be skeg too. Plus I live really close.  But for the gass if it's  ehh around m55 ish  or north I'm good .

   I want to partner with Waterfoul  !!!!!   :D   ;D   :D   ;D

We hit Skeg on an off day somehow. Not sure what was going that day other than the upset duck hunters who actually had a great early shoot when we scared all the ducks out of the fog!

I guess, since I already had the 'dark horse' Cadillac/Mitchell on there (and thedude is anxious) I will not add anymore lakes. 7 choices seem like enough, doesn't it? It is the fall.

Someone said smallies - so picked Mona..... I vacation on white 2 years in a row and absolutely love lakeside resort. however when folks post 20 + bags on skeg, I'd like to try that too. 

Ps: if someone takes me out on hardy , I'll sneak you on the six flags lakes !!! ( I got people lol )

Thanks Dan for bringing year round Catch and Release to Michigan

Mike S.

I sure hope we don't have to go to Skegemog again. I was not impressed with that one. I would rather fish White. I picked Hamlin and Mona. Mona is REAL close to home, and close to the heart. It's my favorite crappy lake to throw lures at.  ;D

customfishn

The 7 lakes on the list are all great fall lakes.  Any one of them would be a great place to fish.

Frank

I picked cadillac because I haven't fished there and my friend lives right up the road.  If its there were having a party at the roadway inn

Mike S.

Mojo, if you can get me on the Michigan Adventures lakes, I will take you to Croton. I don't know anything about it, but I have good electronics, and wouldn't mind going there.
