  1. The bite must have gotten wild cause my phone just won't stop ringing!!!

    Numbers are low right now- be interesting to see what the Saturday morning ramp pays bring to the field!!! 25 spots remain of the 60 team capped field- $6000 to first on full field- a mere 100% otherwise!!!

    If you are fishn' please be prepared to launch- have partner park at beach and boat pick up partner there- boat checks at ramp- registration at beach!

  5. Nip, I believe there is a triathlon on Saturday at Portage. They will be using the beach area to do their swim I believe. It's a pretty big event. I'm not sure how that might effect us boating/beaching near the beach if at all but thought I'd mention it. Perhaps it won't make a difference but just a heads up....
     
  6. Thanks MUCH Bill!!!

    I called the park office today just to follow up and they didnt mention it.

    I did just do a search and located it online. Looks to be a pretty sizeable deal too!!! Nothing like a 9pm crunch- I just picked up the morning handouts at Kinkos! Ouch :eek:

    Well get it figured out upon our arrival in the am. I love this directing stuff... !%

    Thanks again- you should work for ODNR!

  7. For what it's worth at this late hour....

    The New State Park Ramp will be utilized for registration and weigh-in...

    Dont go the the beach unless you plan to run, bike and swim 'till you hurt!

    Not sure how this will impact the Park Manager with our presence, it's the best and only option with least negative consequences.

    Thanks again Bill.

    how did it go guys?!?!?!?!
     
  12. Not sure, we only had 10.22lbs for our limit and that didn't even put us close...

    Austin, nice to see you briefly. Sorry to hear the big one got away... seems that happens to alot of people!!

    Nice to see you aswell Bill. We had 8.22 pounds, even with that hawg we would have only had around 12 which when I left It sounded like you would need 13lbs or more for a check, It would have made a nice run at big bass though
     
  14. We had 8.64 with our limit. I think Jeff Swisher and his son were the last check with around 13 1/2. Portage is a fantastic fishery and Nip's tourney was a flawless production as usual.

    Thanks for a great year my friend!

    Ding<-----still haunted by a couple of "blown hawgs".....hem hem

  17. hem hem....nip

    ...and thanks to those who drove 3 hours and volunteered their time to come help!

    I even brought food

    Well I knew it would be the only time I get to hold 4 pounders from portage...and those are going to be the only 14 and 15 pound bags I'll ever get to carry from that pond! so I guess we're even.

    You need to get some better gloves!

    But really...great tournament...lots of fun. Wish I would have known there were so many OGFer's there. I would have introduced myself.

    I was wondering how Bill and I did.

    Nip, very nice tourney. Portage is one amazing fishery. Hard to believe the weight it took to get into the money.
