The Lost Nomad has a tale to tell of losing big Korean toad along with some pics of a bass and brueger that didn't get away.

Note: Click on on his sidebar Category "Fishing" because this guy gets out and beats that Korean H2O.

Also be sure to frequent My Bass and I and the Bassin Blog.

Introducing: New B.P.B.F.E. Blog

Bass Pundit proudly announces our newest Blog Franchise member:
B.P. vs. Cyberfish

This blog was created to keep score of this infamous fishing grudge match and hopefully will contain the POV's of both participants if I can figure out how to make it a team blog. Cyb does have a blog, but it is barely anything, not worth even linking to at this point.

For the scoop on BP's less than stellar 1st 2 days of the MN Bass Opener, check it out .

Only a few more hours...

Until I can look out the window like I am now and then say to myself. "I feel like pitching at some docks" or "I feel like working on my crankbait skills" and then can go right out to hit the lake and do it.

Moving Goal Posts

The 1st Team Bass Tournament blew some of my 2005 Fishing Goals out of the water and so some are being modified to reflect the new realities.

The Old Goals were
Team Bass Trail:
1. Win 2 Tournaments (1@Horseshoe)
2. Win Big Bass 2 Times
3. Place in the Money 7 times
4. Never Finish below 10th place
5. Limit every tournament
6. Average over 2.25lbs per fish

The New and improved version...
Team Bass Trail:
1. Win 2 Tournaments (1@Horseshoe)
2. Win Big Bass 2 Times
3. Place in the Money 7 times
4. Never Finish below 10th place
in Minnesocold
5. Limit every tournament in Minnesocold
6. Average over 2.25lbs per fish

Note: Blog Format Change

I have decided that having more to read up front is better so I changed my setting to keep the past 31 days of blogging visible without having to go into the archives. Now I need to start working on the "Side-Bar" to fill out some of that vast empty space.

In 24 Hours...

Bass Fishing in Minnesocold will be legal. No, I will not be hitting the water at midnight.

The Morning Plan:
Cyberfish will be coming up tonight and we will be hitting the water early, probably 5 or so. We will be hitting the GOMH then go and try and work the PRO with jerks, topwaters, and jignpigs. From there we will probably come back into Platte and run some shallow straw and hay along with docks. Then Go in for Lunch; fishing will dicatate if it is an early or late lunch.

The Morning Objective:
Land a few toads that are 4lb's plus.

The Evening Plan:
Plan X Factor= Maybe head to Mille Lacs, but only if it is dead calm.

Plan B= Trailer the boat and head to Bordon to try for some Sallies and Larry's. Cool water will probably mean Husky Jerkin, and tubes.

The Evening Objective: Learn about this lake and hopefully pop lots of and big fish.

The Result: "The Plan" fell apart because I caught little fish and then we stayed on Platte for the whole weekend. Some of the results at BPvs.Cyb.

WI Openner with Teen Challenge

It's not quite the whole story of that weekend plus adventure but it sure is one long post with Pics. Would have had a bunch more pics if only that camera battery would stay charged.

Dogfishing Report: Still have yet to catch one and the contest only runs a month longer. However I am sure I will pop a big dude or two yet.

BP Commentary for Thursday May 26th:
I can't believe it's already Thursday and MN Bass season is just a couple of days away. I seriously need to get me a couple of Toads after the Bone Lake let down of 2005. Unfortunately it looks like the weather is gonna continue to drag it's feet (Cold, Clammy, Wet feet) right into the weekend and early next week. As GEM camper Quincy was so fond of saying "Ahh Dat Sucks!"

The Good News, the snap on boat cover for the trophy is far more waterproof than the trailering canvas and the water is rising MOMMA.

Commence Blogging

The Weather has turned fowl, it's a cold rainy day on the shores of Platte Lake and so the BP will blog instead of flog the water this afternoon and evening.

The BP's Bone Lake Tournament Report is now ready at BP's Tourny HQ.

The Month of April is now fully logged at the Fishing Log Blog.

More Developing...

Yes, I still am! (Even though at yesterday's Bone Lake tournament it was tough to tell)

I am now home for a full week, instead of just 2 days and so the blog will be on. Backed up Fishing Reports (a full months worth), back to Bass Pundit Championship Blogging (Maybe I really will get to it this time) and my not so glorious tournament results and stats from Bone Lake among other things.

And I still haven't caught a darn dogfish. They are going down this week.

Didn't do it.

I got tired and took a nap, then started right in getting my gear ready. I ran into difficulty getting the trolling motor adjusted. It's now past 1AM on opener and I still need to pack. While I didn't get the blogging done, I did get pics up on my pic repository.

I'll be outta here in just a few hours. See Yeah on the Water!

I'm back (for a day)

I plan to blog the last couple of weeks fishing adventures over at the Fishing Log Blog, I'll let yeah know when that is ready.

The MN Fishing Openner is only a few hours away, Hooray! I may or may not hit Mille Lacs at mid-night, then tommorrow I'll be hitting the water at the St. Louis River south of Duluth with GEM taking kids walleye fishing. When we get back, I plan to head to Sconi to pre-fish Bone for a couple of days. The weather tommorrow is supposed to be cool and rainy, oh boy!

Good Luck to my fellow Minnesocoldians!

In the meantime get over to BassFan to register and play the Stratos BassFan Patterns Game.

World's Most Pathetic Bassin Blog!

That is what my blogging has been lately. I've got so much to write, but I just haven't gotten started and my backlog is about to get much worse.

I'll be heading to Cheesehead Country later today for the Sconi Fishin Openner on Sat and will be gone for several days. I doubt I'll be able to blog anything about it till the middle of next week.

Next week there is an FLW tournament at Wheeler/Guntersville so get those FLW Fishing Challenge Rosters in.

In my absense check out all the "Blogroll-O-BassNblog" Blogs and "Blogroll-O-FishNblog" blogs. (No those aren't links- the links are down the right hand column.)

Getting Nowhere Faster!

Now it's car trouble. I was about 7 miles from the access, at West Rush to help with the annual Rush Lake GEM Panfish outing, when my oil pressure dropped to nothing. It's either a bad oil pump or sensor, whatever, it NEEDS fixed ASAP.

So I ended up missing the GEM outing, mostly. I was there for a brief moment to let em know what was going on. Thank You Mike Cummins for driving me to Franzen Park and thanks to the Good Samaritan who drove me back. A church from Rush city was doing an angler outreach at the park with free food and one of their guys drove me back.

I gotta get my Log Blogging and BPC blogging up to date because after Friday, I'll be fishing a lot more.

Ohhh, and it's MAY AKA Fishing Openers Month.

WI Opener: Midnight Next Saturday May 7th!
MN Walleye/Pike Opener: Midnight Saturday May 14th!
BP's Tournament Opener: Team Bass @ Bone Lake WI Saturday May 21st 7AM!
MN Bass Fishing Opener: Saturday May 28th
(when I get out of bed, probably a bit before sun up if the weather is any good.)

FYI- Gar over at The Bass Hole has been catchin as have The Lost Nomad and Brad at Bassin Blog .

Anyone know of a new Blog-0-Bass, let me know so I can add em to the blogroll. Thanks Mngmnt!
