Tournament season in Full Swing

Its been a good couple of months of fishing on the tournament trail, fun fishing and guiding around home on Lake of the Woods!  In early August I fished in my second Forrest Wood Cup at Lake Ouachita in Arkansas and came away with a 21st place finish.  Not exactly what I was hoping for but it was a fun week!  

It is an honour to get to fish in this tournamnent and I was really happy that my parents and my girlfriend Shelby were able to come along and share the great week with me! 

After the Cup it was nice to get back home for a while to enjoy all of the awesome fishing we have here in Sunset Country

This was a fun evening of walleye fishing in mid-August.  The walleye fishing is ALWAYS good on Lake of the Woods!

Later in August my pal Scott Dingwall and I won the annual International Falls Bass Championship on Rainy Lake...it was a great weekend with some big catches of smallmouth bass!

The walleye fishing was still good later in August!  Here is my friend Brad Stout along with his son Blake who came to enjoy a couple days of walleye fishing on Woods.

In early September, Shelby and I took her parents out fishing and Shelbs showed everybody how to catch big walleyes!  

This past weekend my buddy Mike Reid and I won the annual Bassin' For Bucks tournament on Lake of the Woods and while we weighed mostly smallmouths in this three day event, we did manage to wrangle a few big largemouths on day two, including the big fish of the tournament at 5.84 pounds!   

We were fortunate and grinded out another win at Bassin' For Bucks so it was a pretty good week!  Mike and I grew up together but we don't get to see each other a lot anymore so this tournament is a fun week for us to get to fish together and hang out!
