Good News!

This morning as I prepared myself for break I decided to check my phone for emails I may have received in the early morning. This morning I found this email waiting for me.....


You and Your partner qualified and are invited to compete in the 2010 NAIFC Championship in Rhinelander, Wisconsin, December, 17-19 2010.   Your Quest for the 2010 NAIFC Championship Rings and share of the estimated $20,000.00 purse continues with the return of your 2010 NAIFC Championship Commitment Letter. 

The Mandatory Rules Meeting will be held in Rhinelander on the evening of Friday December 17th, 2010 at the Taj Bar & Grill/Northwood.  The Championship is a two-day-total-weight tournament: Day-One’s competition (December 18th) will be held on Lake Thompson.  Day-Two’s competition (December 19th) will be held on Lake George.  Hours of competition on both days will be between 8:00 am -2:00 p.m., with 8 crappies and 8 sunfish per day the targeted species.

It was certainly a double take situation.

Adam and I had a great time fishing the qualifier at Delavan Lake last season but did not finish well enough to fish the championship, but the rules for the championship state that you MUST FISH WITH YOUR QUALIFYING PARTNER. Fact of the matter there are a lot of teams that do not stay together every year, so we were bumped up in the ranks and invited to fish!

Love it! Gonna need things together a bit earlier than planned but its a good thing.

Bring on the ice!!

I'm looking out at Lake Thompson right now, and cannot imagine that there will be fish-able ice in 4 weeks.

Then again, we're in Wisconsin... :)

Dan, I hope we get really cold really quick, at this rate the very best we can hope for is a walking tourney.
