Well, what was funny to me was that you would look over at the boat and see the co but not the boater.  Then, we could see him over the side with the cone.  I would not have believed it had I not seen it with my own two eyes.

I really dont like the idea of that cone thing, I've been hearing about it for a while, but I am DEFINATELY opposed to it during tourney hours.  I think it needs to go, atleast during the tourney.

I dont think the "in the fall" comment was a mistake.  I heard it too and it caused me to do the what the heck did I just hear head swivel.

I'm not saying I have an answer but combine the long travel north with a bed fishing tourney and I think these numbers will continue to decline.

95 boats for the first tourney of the year??  I guess my advice to co-anglers for burt/mullett bed fishing if I had to be honest would be "don't waste your time and gas".

A Burt/Mullett in the fall would definately be worth boaters and co-angler's time.

I'll cut my thoughts off and maybe continue it in the already existing thread about BFL schedules.

That is BS..I would have thrown him in the lake...I fished as a Co on Bedding fish and I wouldn't have dreamed of throwing on a boaters fish...If a boater was working a bed I would have fan casted off from the back and hoped for the best....If he told me to give it a shot only then would I throw on the bed

That cone deal reminds me of Roland Martins platform in BASS.....Can't knock a guy for thinking outside the box until the rules say otherwise...I think they had about 6 "Roland Martin" rules...

If a Regional is there it won't be for the Mi division.

Why not?  We always fish on the Mississippi against the Great Lakes division.

     I anchored the front and back of the boat for over an hour so that my co could fish for 2 diffrent 4 plus pounders while one of my big fish settled back down while I did this I stood on the back deck trying to teach my co how to bed fish.  It was a great day weighin in 24 lbs was good I could never get my last big one to bite a second time worked him for over 2.5 hours. My co did get his limit on bedding fish but not the pigs I had him anchord on they were tough and he just couldnt cast the best.

It's great to hear boaters treating their co-anglers so well and why not help them out while your fish is settling down. Nice job on the 24lbs, you would have had a chance to win with that last fish! My buddies (Seth, Charlie, Britt) all helped their CO's get fish, so it isn't as bad as some think to be a CO in a bedding tournament after all!

My boater was nice enough to let me throw in beds together but that was mostly because I was helping him find a couple late in the day. I think he would have done that if he was targeting beds from the beginning, so I can't complain too much. Next time I fish a bed tournament, I might just bring my boat and a portable GPS to mark beds in practice and then if my boater isn't on them - I'll share! (or better yet - I'll be the boater!)

Well, this is my third year fishing the BFL and first as a boater.  I've only had one boater that I wanted to dump in the lake.  Everybody else has been great.  Most of the boaters I had were in the Buckeye division, and Ohio guys tend to be a pain in the rear, but only one of mine was.  Of course, I want say any names.  I love the mentality of the Michigan divison.  The boaters and co's really seem interested in learning and teaching. 

I guess I think it's that way because the Michigan guys are used to be spread out.  There's so much water to fish, compared to Ohio.  In Ohio, we just get in line behind one another. It's close quarter combat fishing.  It's not always nicey-nice, if you get my drift.  I think it causes tempers to flare up, and I think it's why I enjoy fishing up north and down south.  I avoid Ohio except for Erie and my club tourneys.  If I catch a fish in a club tourney, I could care less what else happens.  I won't fight over a spot in a club tourney.

The Great lakes Division fishes on the Missippi river but on the pools way farther North. I believe no Division ever fishes a Regional on a body of water that was on their schedule. It may have happened but it is for sure a rarity.

I think TH is right.  If they hold the regional at Burt Mullet, they won't permit the Michigan division to fish it.  At least, that seems like the rule they use in placing divisions at regionals.

You are not correct, the Bfl is trying to work out a deal for the regional to be at burt and mullett which the michigan division will fish the rule is that we will not be able to fish that body of water next year.  Therfore rumor has it we will be going to elk and torch in the spring Anthony while here had meetingings with the chamber of commerce in both locations

All I can say is that is one awesome body of water.  There's so much you could do.  I fished down into th3e Crooked River, and wondered if I could get to Crooked Lake, but not knowing the water forced me to stay in Burt for practice.  You technically could go to Black Crooked, Pickerel...It's nice to be able to spread out and fish.

Can you make it all the way to the Little Traverse Bay?

I knew guys that fished crooked lake, we went there to fun fish on Friday - knowing we weren't going to fish there on Saturday and we had guys being pretty protective of their areas.

I guess you can make all the way to Huron but that was off limits for the tourney.

I got to fish with now two time winner Chad Pipkens and learned alot from Chad, he is a great fisherman who did his best to get me a limit of smallies, he had plenty of waypoints marked for the co to fish after he got his winning limit and I had plenty of time to get a limit but only managed four fish due to fact that beds were empty or fish came unbuttoned (my fault) and did not return to bed. In fact with ten minutes left before 3:00 p.m. Chad said he had one last waypoint in deeper water for me to fish and was sure no one had fished it, we pulled up and sure enough the fish was there, I drop shotted and was able to get the fish, a nice approx. three & half pounder. It was then off to the weigh-in.  where my weight was just over fourteen pounds for four fish. I made some mistakes and should have had a limit but thats fishing. I would like to thank Chad for giving me the chance to fish and even giving me the winning bait to use, in fact I had over four hours to fish after Chad got his limit where he did not pick up a pole just drove from spot to spot. Good Fishing and Good Luck to all Smallie 1

24 of 95 co-anglers got their limit. Not bad!

You can get to Crooked and Pickerel through a small, low-head lock run by the MDNR on the Crooked River.

You cannot get to Black Lake. There are 2 or 3 dams in the way on the Black River. I've fished one of the river-run reservoir sections before. No boat locks on the Black River. I've gone up it from the Cheboygan River about as far as you can go in a bass boat and it is very shallow and rocky. Hard on the hull ;D

What was big bass on Saturday? (I heard our own BrianB caught a big 6.2 on Sunday for big bass - way to go Brian!!)

I see farther back something about a 6-13 being big bass. Just wondered. A fall regional would be fun for everyone up there, but it might make me have to adjust the timing of my annual fall trip up there so I still have a little 'solitude' ;D
