After getting my butt whipped in most of the tournaments around home over the summer my partners and I had some better results this fall. Fishing is just about finished now for me so we are switching over to hunt mode for the next couple of months. There is always something going on around here!
My buddy Dennis Favreau and I won the Shoal Lake Last Chance tournament in late September with a mixed bag of smallmouths and largemouths. We weighed five of each over the two day event. Felt good to finally win a tournament this year!
Earlier in September Mike Reid and I took third at the Bassin' For Bucks tournament on Lake of the Woods. The turning point for us in this three day tournament was when Mike caught our two biggest fish of the day on the same cast on day two, a couple of beauty smallmouths. There was some good high fives going on after this!
In early October Mike and I teamed up again and took fourth at the Whitefish Bay Fall Classic, again mixing up some smallmouths and largemouths. We have a lot of fun fishing together!
The last Sunset Country tournament of the year was the Frank McClymont Memorial, a one day event that took place over the Thanksgiving weekend. My buddies Jay Samsal and Scott Dingwall laid a beating on everybody with their 22.60 pound load. Congrats guys!
Once the tournament fishing was done my wife and I were able to get out and do one of our favourite things...hunt grouse. We have a ton of them around home and spent a weekend with some friends at an outpost cabin hunting these tasty, beautiful birds. We had a great weekend and everybody limited out.
Here is a really pretty one that I got...probably my favourite thing there is to eat!
A couple weeks ago I got out and filmed a great show for crappies. It was some of the best fall fishing I have ever experienced, we found a mega-school! I was catching them pretty good on the new Northland Tackle Buck-Shot Flutter Spoon.
We found the fish using the Side-Imaging on the Humminbird...all of those little white spots on the screen above are crappies. We found an about 200 yards long that was littered with fish. It was fun!
I have been out bass fishing a few times for fun...this one was from earlier in the week. I sold my boat this week so I got out one last time in it the day before it was picked up. Here is a nice umbrella rig beauty!
Finally, the Lake Eufaula FLW Tour event that I did well in back in May was put up online this week. Check it out here: https://youtu.be/TKBTZBKM5Xc
