2016 MI Chapter 69 Chautauqua Lake Muskie Tournament, 06/11/2016

Recommended Posts

My buddy and I got a few between Friday and Saturday, just not during the tournament.

Here are two nice ones from Friday. We got them on consecutive passes through the same school of perch. The big one spit out a couple of 4in perch while we brought her in and the smaller one had a bulging belly too.





Since we didn't have any fish to enter on Saturday, we stayed out and got this fattie at 4:30.



I look forward to next year's tourney!

Haha Chad....Team Ortho knows how to get 'em!  


At the last Chautauqua Tourney, my same buddy nailed a 47" the night before, which was his first ever too.  I think next year, I won't let him fish until Saturday!


Tight lines!

Here are the results.


There were 30 participants with a total of 19 fish caught.


1st Place and Big Fish: Mike Deponceau, 30 points. His fish were, 44" and 37.5"


2nd Place: Frank Alcorn, 24 points. His fish were 34.5", 30.5", and 35.5".


3rd Place: Alexandra Palo, 19 points. Her fish were 35.75" and 35".


I believe Alexandra is the first female and first junior angler to win a prize in a MI Chapter 69 tournament.


Alexandra's brother, Thomas and her father, Dave each caught a fish as well. Mike and Frank were fishing partners. So if you add up the fish caught on both those boats together, it equals 9 which is almost half of all fish entered. You might say those two boats had a good day, despite the tough bite.
