Sioux Narrows duo bass tourney there

Joe Pritchett and Hiram Archibald of Sioux Narrows teamed up to capture top honours—and the $2,500 first prize—at this year’s “Bassin’ for Bucks” tournament there last weekend.

Their three-day total of 45.64 pounds was less than a pound better than the 44.86-pound haul by the Thunder Bay team of Glenn Leroux and Dan Cheal, who took home $1,500.

Ripping cranks on riprap

Late summer marks the beginning of some really good fall walleye fishing. I like to head to the rivers when the weather is hot and do some ripping of cranks along the riprap.

This is a spring and fall approach to finding walleyes shallow but it also is very effective on late-summer walleyes.

Bronco offence runs over Muskies

Heading into last Friday's tilt in International Falls, the Muskies knew they would have their hands full with the Broncos’ vaunted running attack.

And that's exactly what happened—especially in the first half—as the host Broncos ran their way to a comfortable 28-7 victory over the black-and-gold.

All fired up:

Eight members of the Junior Conservation Club and their parents took to the local sportsmen’s club gun range at Frog Creek to get a taste of target practice.

Willie Anderson, who volunteered his time to instruct along with Doug Langtry, said they brought the youngsters to the range to show them how to safely use handguns and .22 rifles—and to give them something different to do.
