Chatman  - Well Mike, where do you want to go tonight?

Juls  - Michael, how did you end up at Spring Valley?

Michael Meyer Jr  - back to red wing I'm broke

Michael Meyer Jr  - Spring Valley

Juls  -   ;-)

Michael Meyer Jr  - I started to learn hand lining

Backwater Eddy (ND)  - lol

Eyesrfn  - too many calluses?

Juls  - if there were he did it wrong..lol

Backwater Eddy (ND)  - You need magic finger Juls to show ya her touch

Michael Meyer Jr  - It was different. Now for Dubuque

Juls  - I'm looking forward to Dubuque...I have never been there before...

Juls  - I guess you wont be taking the hand line reels with you this time huh?

Chatman  - The revised forecast for Dubuque is a much better river than it has been...

Juls  -   ;-)

MikeM  - Went to the river some years back with the MWC...interesting water

Driftr  - are there more teams signed for Dubuque?

Michael Meyer Jr  - Found a good Kirby Puckett batting glove

Ristorapper  - for hand lining?

Ristorapper  - just kidding

Michael Meyer Jr  - hahaha

Chatman  - Do you wanna talk a little about your win at Lake City last year Mike  -

Michael Meyer Jr  - mounted the reels on the windshield. That worked different

Juls  - on the windshield??

Backwater Eddy (ND)  - so you could use it and operate the boat at the same time?

Juls  - why did you put them there I'm wondering?

Michael Meyer Jr  - I run a remote kicker and that worked well. Only one lost weight

Backwater Eddy (ND)  - OK

Chatman  - I also suspect there is not as much of a risk of getting the line caught in the prop then either....

Michael Meyer Jr  - still have 10 fingers

Backwater Eddy (ND)  - lol

Backwater Eddy (ND)  - do they ever back troll hand line's?

Michael Meyer Jr  - saw Grandpa Joe doing it backwards

Juls  - no BE

Backwater Eddy (ND)  - why

Chairman  - why would you back troll hand lines?

Backwater Eddy (ND)  - slip the channel better

Backwater Eddy (ND)  - ???

Michael Meyer Jr  - I see there is about 12 tourneys in red wing this year maybe I'll move there

Swat1  - Actually I think you would have less boat control in current when back trolling. ?????

Juls  - your going to have to call me BE and I will explain hand lining to you....I started to last time when you got cut off...lol

Backwater Eddy (ND)  - I back troll rap's all the time on rivers

Backwater Eddy (ND)  - ah yer just chicken

Chairman  - the jig bite got hot when Edison fired up the plant. everybody was at Trenton.

Michael Meyer Jr  - the wind blowing up current may be what slowed the HL bite. It was great till Friday

Chairman  - I know, I was there, just got here at Erie today.

Chairman  - what gear lis cold here too 37

Michael Meyer Jr  - wish I was there

Ristorapper  - Sept. 5-7 approx

Michael Meyer Jr  - My handle is Slip_Bobber

Ben  - Is the field full?

Ristorapper  - doubt it

Michael Meyer Jr  - I also like to pull boards very shallow

Ben  - I'm not very familiar with the circuit, is there anyway I can fish that tourney without fishing the rest of them?

Michael Meyer Jr  - run them into shore

Ristorapper  - What ya pulling behind shallow boards MIKE?

Ristorapper  - yes Ben

Chatman  - Me too, have to keep the outside boards rod in my hand to keep the line out of the trees sometimes....

Ben  - Are you going to fish it?

Chairman  - openings at each site now Ben

Michael Meyer Jr  - shallow shads 10 to 25 ft back

Michael Meyer Jr  - that's what the steering wheel is for

Ristorapper  - :)

Ben  -

Ben  - all right, who should I contact to get into it?

Chatman  - That's true Mike, but I have found that sometimes being able to have the board run under overhanging trees reaches untouched water...

Juls  - go to www.operationwalleye.com..all the info is there Ben

Chairman  - operationbass.com

Ben  - thanks

Juls  - or that one too...they both get you there...just click on the RCL logo

Ben  - Devils Lake

Chatman  - You can get there from Walleye Central too, go to Walleye Tourneys and click on their logo....

EyeBoy  - Chat  - what boards do you use?

Michael Meyer Jr  - I run them right into the rocks. It seems to trigger. The rod is in my hand

Chatman  - Wille Boards with the snapper clip on the tow arm....

Juls  - that's what you did at Pepin last year to win it didn't you Michael?

EyeBoy  - thanks

Michael Meyer Jr  - yes on offshore boards

Ben  - fish the river very often

Juls  - cool...never would have thought of that...  --) very interesting

Den  - gotta hold tight to the fishing rod Juls, lol

Juls  - lol

Swat1  - Are you using the new snapper releases from Off Shore now Michael?

EyeBoy  - When running your boards in that close  - do you run surface cranks, or shallow divers?

Michael Meyer Jr  - NO! I'll go back after the boards

Michael Meyer Jr  - 7 - 9 shallow shads or 5 shads

Juls  - so you want those cranks slamming into the rocks huh? making a lot of commotion? is that right?

EyeBoy  - K-O

Swat1  - I took the new pin release and put it on the back of the board so if the front comes loose the back one will still hold but it allows the board to not dig in and come in easier

EyeBoy  - Bumpin and bangin?

Juls  - do you leave both sets of trebles on , or do you take the front one off?

EyeBoy  - good question

Michael Meyer Jr  - I'll try that Swat

Chatman  - What about speed Mike? How critical is it for you, and what speed are we talking about here?

Michael Meyer Jr  - Tight to shore its usually 2.0

Chatman  - I know a lot of Pepin anglers troll a lot faster, have you found higher speeds productive at all Mike?

Michael Meyer Jr  - I took 2nd at the NAWA championships in 99 doing 4.5 - 5 mph with boards

Driftr  - how deep is the water they are running in

Swat1  - that's making them skip along...lol

Michael Meyer Jr  - 5 - 8 ft

EyeBoy  - They're water skiing at that speed.......lol

Michael Meyer Jr  - That's why I need to come off

Swat1  - Good point

Chatman  - What line and pound test are you using Mike, those speeds and the rocks can be tough on your line....

EyeBoy  - What about the hooks?

Swat1  - Michael you said you like to use slip bobbers what situations do you like them in?

Michael Meyer Jr  - Berkeley XT 10

Chatman  - Good stuff, I had a record eye on that very line and it broke at 16 lbs..........
