  11. Hello Everybody, Sign up for the 11th Annual Dreamweaver Charity tourney is now open. For those of you who have never heard of this tourney here is a little history. Years ago the West Michigan Fishing League started this tournament as a fun tournament where everyone has to fish with the same lures. It made it fun for guys just starting out. Whether you have a 16 foot tiller or a 30+ Tiara the playing field is leveled out for everyone. Included in your entry fee is a Captains Pack that includes your lures for the tournament. This will include spoons, a plug, spinnies, flies, whirly gig, and this year a meat rig along with a pack of meat strips. The Captains pack alone is worth well over the $75 entry fee. The tournament experienced so much success that back in 2008 we partnered with Benefit 4 Kids (B4K) and turned it into a Charity tournament. Over the past 10 years we have raised over $100K and sent 11 life limited kids and their families on outdoor adventures ranging from houseboat trips to Alaskan Brown Bear hunts! B4K and The Dreamweaver Charity tournament are 100% volunteer organizations. Every single dollar raised from the tournament goes directly to B4K This years tournament is again being held at Fisherman's Landing Campground in Muskegon Mi. Saturday July 28,2018. Please see the following rules on the tournament and how to sign up. If you have any questions please feel free to PM me or e-mail me at [email protected] You can also follow us at https://www.facebook.com/DreamweaverCharitySalmonTournament Tourney Fees are $75.00 total. $70.00 Dollars to enter tourney, $5.00 dollars for big fish. We are accepting PayPal this year ($5 fee will be added to your entry total to cover PayPal charges). PayPal invoice must be requested in order to pay via PayPal/Credit Card. We are offering tournament T shirts this year for an additional $10 each. Please let me know how many and what sizes when you send in your entry fee To sign up, please email [email protected] . Winnings will be awarded accordingly 1st-Place - 20 tickets, trophy. 2nd Place – 18 tickets. 3rd Place – 16 tickets. 4th Place – 14 tickets. 5th Place – 12 tickets. 6th Place – 10 tickets. 7th Place – 8 tickets. 8th Place – 6 tickets. 9th Place – 4 tickets. 10th Place – 2 tickets. Big Fish – Cash. *Additional raffle tickets can be purchased for $5/piece or 5 for $20. Raffle Tickets will only be sold on day of tournament, and you must be present to win.* This is a FUN charity tournament. We ask people to share fishing tips on the radio (Channel 72). Please keep your comments at a PG rating. This is a family orientated event. You may ONLY use the lures provided in the lure pack. If you lose a lure you are down a lure, no replacing the lure with a like lure in your boat. No adding scent. No alterations of the lures (exception, line on the fly and changing hooks if they become unusable). ANY PORT ON LAKE MICHIGAN IS OPEN TO FISH. Fishing starts no earlier than 5:00 AM, there is no stop time HOWEVER a team representative must be in line with fish for weigh-in by 1:00 PM at Fisherman’s Landing, Muskegon. You will be disqualified if you are not in weigh-in line by 1:00pm. A tournament representative will be ready to weigh fish by 11:00 AM. Boats may use up to 9 rods in the water MAX at any one time. Three-man DNR fish limit MAX per boat. Weigh 5 fish of the following kind (King, Coho, Steelhead, Browns, and Lakers). Each fish is worth 10 points plus weight. Know what your big fish is. You get 1 chance to weigh your big fish. All captains/representatives must sign a waiver form prior to getting their lure packages. A representative will be in the Fisherman’s Landing Pavilion from 4:30 AM to 5:00 AM (day of tournament). NO EXCEPTIONS! Lure packages will also be available Friday at the Fisherman’s Landing Campground. Park in the boat launch parking lot and walk into the campground please. Waiver forms are available in .PDF, If possible print them, fill them out, and send them with your payment. (For Waiver form email [email protected]) If you do not show up for the event, your lure package will be donated as a prize and money will not be refunded. To cancel you MUST email ([email protected]) or call Tom Andris directly. (Phone numbers will be given to captains). We will not be issuing a cancellation of tournament. Each captain is responsible for their boat and crew. In the event of inclement weather if no boats weigh fish, big fish money will be donated to charity and a raffle will be held in the pavilion at 1:00 PM. June 1st is the deadline to have entry fees in, this is because we have to order the lures and put the packages together. If you have signed up but not paid by the deadline date your spot will not be guaranteed. Any boat that pays the entry fee prior to May 1st will receive 5 extra raffle tickets in their captain’s pack. Please make checks out to Tom Andris with Dreamweaver Charity Salmon Tourney in the notes section. This tournament will be limited to the first 50 Paid boats. We will have a waiting list in case of cancellations or non-payment.
  12. Lines down at 8 and up at 11:30. Had my 16ft river boat so the 1-3's this morning made it a bit stumbly in the boat. Set down by the pump station and stayed within a mile of it. Water temp was 36-36.8. River water was 42. Wind out of the SW. All flat lines. 13-18 all 18-21 inch coho. Threw back 3 small guys. Couple on orange or red thin fins. Couple on brown trout rapala. 1 on a Jr Flutter devil.. Stars of the day were 3.0 mag lips in Metallic orange flame and Copper mine. Took 9 of the hits. Could have limited earlier but after realizing the coho were thick we tried the beach for a while for browns. Lots of nets flying. Ramps still not in at Benton Harbor. All ramps in at St Joe
  13. Actually got hit by a gaff Martin. I use one on bigger fish when I'm solo. Hell of a lot easier to maneuver. Only drawback is them damn things are dangerous. Stuck myself this morning just below the calf and had a pretty good bleeder. Thank goodness I have a med kit on board or I might have had to rush in.
