we will definitly have to get a beer at the meeting! we are usually at the BOOYAA booth but i dont think we will have it there this year....WON is not showing the love to us as they have in the past..it is alot of work to set up and run the booth especially on the tourny days so I think Kris and I will fish and relax instead.But if the booth is set up,thats where we will be!

Hey Guy's,

Just found this forum and wanted to say hello. My name is Bill Egan, and I am the new Tournament Director in charge of the 27th Annual Stripe Derby.

We al;ready have 127 team signed up for this years event, and we are working on some great stuff for this years event. Western Outdoor News is proud to have both Mercury and Bass Pro Shops Nitro Boats once again offering our Grande Raffle winners the Grand Prize X5 Nitro/Mercury package. There will be a Nautical Inn stimulus package scratcher worth a possible $50,000 for every angler that signs up with a team member. The tournament headquarters will once again be at the Nautical Inn, and discounted room rates are available both at the Nautical Inn and at the Quality Inn. The tourney is slated for the weekend of March 14th, 15th, and 16th. If you are interested in signing up, or reading more information regarding this event, please click on the link provided below.

Hey Guys,

Thanks for the kind words and welcome.

I just got back last night from a recent trip out to the lake. The water level has come up a bit, and with the shad on the spawn, it spells "Hook Up" on the bass bite. Had some great luck in the evening hours around the marinas, with a custom top water rat a buddy of mine made. You can still find some bedding bass up in the shallows, but I am not much for bed fishing, as I like throwing the big baits. Took a mid afternoon ride down to the Southern end of the lake near Bill Williams arm, and found the birds pushing shad into the cuts. Decided to put on a nice big Swim Jig, and work the inside edge of the birds, and found a few nice 4# largies in the mix. As the sun began it's slow decent for sunset, the water started boiling all around, and these were not the massive moving balls of CARP, but were the right kind. So I tied on another custom top water bait designed specifically for the stripers, and it was only minutes, until the line sides were attacking the bait. Landed all in all, around 6 stripers all between 2 and 5 pounds. Had a few bigger ones that came un-buttoned in the battle. Had a great time on the water, and look forward to seeing everyone out there in mid May for the Lake Havasu Striper Derby held on May 15th and 16th.
