[20:03:50] Perchn ( Pa ): not yet.....

[20:04:05] Lundman(Wi): Most of the Pro's decent guys LS?

[20:04:08] fishncrazy: hi all

[20:04:13] LS: the Erie tourney was the most exciting of all for me....

[20:04:29] ebijack (mi): because of being the first tourney?

[20:05:10] LS: all of the Pro's are great guys....there was alot of rumors going around

that some were not too nice but thats not true

[20:05:43] LS: being the 1st tourney & meeting alot of walleye central people

[20:06:32] LS: i guess the best for me was Leech.....just not too nice of weather

[20:06:46] Wolfheart: LS, Do you enter alot of tourneys other than PWT?

[20:06:49] ebijack (mi): LS, would you recommend fishing the pwt as a am to everyone

[20:06:56] Perchn ( Pa ): lS where was the hottest bite??

[20:07:11] LS: Wolf, I fish about 8-10 tourneys a year

[20:07:23] boomer (mi): what tourney did you learn the most and what did you learn?

[20:07:39] LS: Ebi, yes I would ...its a great learning experience

[20:07:57] ^2old2^ (mi): did you do all the PWT tourneys this year

[20:08:04] Wolfheart: Do you fish any tourneys in Canada?

[20:08:23] LS: Boomer, Leech I learned the most ...mainly on sticking with the game

plan & things will work out

[20:08:32] Just Look"N--MI: how hard is it to get as an am?

[20:08:53] LS: 2 old 2, yes I fished the 4 qualifiers

[20:09:28] LS: Wolf, not yet....plan on fishing the Vanity Cup next year

[20:09:41] Wolfheart: Great... I'll see you there!!!

[20:10:01] Wolfheart: A buddy of mine just got 5th there last weekend!

[20:10:09] ebijack (mi): LS, how difficult is it to fish with different pro's doing different

styles of fishing on the same water you fished the day before

[20:10:11] LS: Just, this year there were 67 of us that fished all of them.....it will be

easier next year

[20:10:23] Eyeman (IN): Are you planning on fishing them next year or in the future LS


[20:10:11] LS: Just, this year there were 67 of us that fished all of them.....it will be

easier next year

[20:10:23] Eyeman (IN): Are you planning on fishing them next year or in the furture LS


[20:10:57] LS: Ebi, thats the tough part....everybody wants you to do things a little


[20:11:03] fishncrazy: LS, Do you feel you will probably have an edge in being picked

for the pro division next season, since you placed in 1/2 your tourneys in the pwt AM

div in 3rd place or better?

[20:11:26] Perchn ( Pa ): LS which pro was your favorite??

[20:11:27] LS: Eyeman, my plans are to fish the PWT as a pro next year

[20:11:47] Eyeman (IN): go getum

[20:12:01] boomer (mi): good luck!!!!!

[20:12:11] LS: Fish, I am told that fishing this year as a amature will help in getting in as

a pro

[20:12:56] LS: Perch, hard to say on that one.....Bill Mcgee would be my 1st pick

[20:13:08] Just Look"N--MI: do you have better chance to get in as am if you do all on


[20:13:34] LS: Just, yes you do

[20:13:38] Dave (Pa.): LS Do you have many sponsors yet?

[20:13:54] nail: hey guys

[20:14:05] Reefer: howdy all

[20:14:09] LS: dave, I have 3 sponsors

[20:14:14] boomer (mi): what type of boat will you be running?

[20:14:21] LS: working on more

[20:14:22] ^2old2^ (mi): have any sponcers approached you or do you have to persue


[20:14:23] Jim Alton: You'll be living a lot of people's dream next year LS... way to go...

takes some gonads to make the jump.

[20:15:08] LS: Boomer, i have a Starcraft T180.....I'll be using it unless I sell it before

next spring

[20:15:36] Wolfheart: Got any electronics you wanna sell outta that Starcraft at the end

of this season LS?

[20:15:41] LS: 2old2, you have to seek the sponsors......

[20:15:55] Jim Alton: Can you tell us who your sponsors are?

[20:16:15] LS: Wolf, possibaly.....

[20:16:56] LS: Jim, Evinrude , Minot Motor Marine, Ft. Stevenson Marina

[20:17:09] Jim Alton: Good start...

[20:17:17] LS: I also have a boat sponsor lined up

[20:17:25] Jim Alton: If I send ya $10 can ya add me to the list? ;-)

[20:17:39] fishncrazy: hehee

[20:17:48] Wolfheart: Ha HA

[20:17:53] boomer (mi): lol

[20:17:55] LS: LOL.....put a few 00000's behind it :-)

[20:17:58] Jim Alton: And don't worry... I'll make sure it's $10 US dollars.

[20:18:38] LS: the sponsors dont come that easy....its a lot of work to get them

[20:18:54] ebijack (mi): LS, what made you decide to move up to the pwt from mwc

[20:19:02] ^2old2^ (mi): can we take up a collection and get a walleye central sticker

on the boat

[20:19:03] Jim Alton: How did you approach the first sponsor and what did they want to

see from you in return?

[20:19:13] LS: if i missed any questions just ask them again

[20:19:34] fishncrazy: what was your most exciting moment in the AM div this past

season LS?

[20:20:14] LS: Evinrude was my 1st sponsor, got them through my dealer....have to put

in time at boat shows in the spring in return

[20:20:20] Perchn ( Pa ): LS was Erie the roughest Lake this season??

[20:20:52] LS: Fish, getting the big fish at Leech was the most exciting

[20:21:36] LS: Perch, the last day it was......but Leech wasn't any better

[20:21:52] Perchn ( Pa ): I remember

[20:21:59] LS: it hailed on us the one day at Leech

[20:22:49] Jim Alton: Don't name names... but.. were there any days you were in the

boat with the Pro and thought..."What the heck is he thinking?"

[20:22:49] LS: The PWT staff is great also.....they take care of everything

[20:23:09] ebijack (mi): LS, has fishing as a am, changed your thoughts on how you'll

fish as a pro

[20:23:30] LS: Jim, I can think of one day that I was thinking that

[20:23:47] Magic Marker: ??

[20:24:01] Jim Alton: Ya oughta go with me then... ;-)

[20:24:29] LS: Ebi, yes.....thats what I would say I learned the most, how to pre-fish


[20:25:16] LS: I did get to go out with Ebi one day at Erie....that was also a highlight

[20:25:31] ebijack (mi): thanks

[20:25:32] boomer (mi): how do you prefish better? just more time on water?

[20:25:37] Jim Alton: white knuckle time...

[20:25:41] Magic Marker: :-)

[20:25:50] Perchn ( Pa ): :-)

[20:25:55] ebijack (mi): LS, so the pre-fishing with the pro's also was a big help

[20:26:07] Eyeman (IN): was some of the prefishing alot different then you thought it

would be Ls ??

[20:26:30] LS: Boomer, how to use the time more wisely, which areas to forget & which

ones to stay on

[20:26:59] LS: Ebi, I learned more pre-fishing than in the tourney

[20:27:10] Just Look"N--MI: what was average prefishing ..2 days?

[20:28:16] LS: Eyeman, we didn't do anything new to me, trolling at Erie in the fog

during pre-fishing was new though

[20:28:32] fishncrazy: LS I have fished with you and against you in tourneys for years

and I know you are a well rounded angler but was cranking probally the best tech. that

you learned from the pros this past season?

[20:28:38] Eyeman (IN): :-)

[20:29:04] LS: Just, 2 at Erie, 3 at Leech, 4 at Oahe,0 at Peck

[20:29:38] Just Look"N--MI: thanks LS

[20:29:51] LS: Fish, I guess so...

[20:30:30] LS: I had a tourney here , thats why no pre-fishing at Peck

[20:30:32] fishncrazy: well you taught me plenty about cranking and Im glad for that!!

[20:30:48] Jim Alton: How many tournaments have you fished LS?

[20:30:49] ebijack (mi): LS, after fishing tourney's out of so many different boats, did

you change your thinking on what electronics to have and other equipment

[20:30:52] LS: Fish, I love trolling

[20:31:41] Eyeman (IN): trolling :-)

[20:31:55] LS: Ebi, yes.....Lowrance is still the choice I think, I know i'm going to get a

TR-1 though

[20:32:45] LS: Golbal map is another must have

[20:33:04] Eyeman (IN): lowrance a sponser ???

[20:33:05] ebijack (mi): LS, have you found hot spots maps to be the best overall or

has another map been better

[20:33:32] LS: Eyeman, I'm wishing

[20:34:14] Eyeman (IN): maybe santa will bring something like that

[20:34:16] LS: Ebi, it seemed like everybody had them

[20:34:47] LS: I'll really need santa this year...LOL

[20:34:57] ebijack (mi): LS, after 99 do you think you'll try both div's?

[20:35:00] fishncrazy: hohoho

[20:35:33] LS: Ebi, thats my goal.....we'll see

[20:35:51] Magic Marker: If you were setting up new boat and could have everything

on wish list what would it be?

[20:36:45] LS: Magic, the list would be very long......

[20:37:00] ebijack (mi): to much typing eh LS :)

[20:37:08] Magic Marker: just boat and electronics

[20:37:09] LS: yep... LOL

[20:45:12] ebijack (mi): LS, what kind of safety margin do you give yourself to return to

weigh-in when running a long distance

[20:45:51] LS: Jim, the goal is to finish in the top 5 in the west div. & make it to the
