I may have to slim down my 43 pounds prediction on winning weight I threw out there in the DWC thread.  It is sounding a little tough out there to find the quality bites.  Numbers of smaller fish but the big bites are more difficult.

Stop Walakering... is your official prediction 43 or not?

Somebody always finds 10 good bites in the Cup, I would say closer to 40 even is my guess. I sure hope it's me!!

My average 5 fish limits have been around 10 To 12 pounds. I have to figure nearly double that for a tournament as being more selective wanting bigger fish and puts the winner around I'd say 38 pounds 14 ounces not including basket

"When we step into the outdoors, we have the privilege of standing in the presence of God through the power and majesty of His creation. That makes hunting more than a sport or a hobby. It's a calling to something greater. And that transforms the places that we stand into something more than a cropfield or a pasture or a mountain. It makes that place Hallowed Ground."

My prediction is me and my partner end up in the bottom half. I have fished sakakawea a grand total of 2 hours this year. Another prediction is we will have a blast in the tourney as well.

based on what I caught this weekend (first outing in two years) 43 pounds will no doubt be caught.

 I have not fished the big lake this year but  based on the stable weather forecast for this week and the pictures I have saw posted on here I will go overboard and say  10 oz shy of 50 pounds.      There should be a lot of teams in the running.

Were you on east end?

And yes, out of 252 teams we will see ten to fifteen teams with mid-high 30's to low 40's. I just think very tough to get ten 20 inch fish on east end. Winners most likely will or will have a big one to kick them.  Will be a lot of 14 to 16 inch fish weighed. 

Of couse some people always say their 20 inch fish are 5 pounds but those people always got em the day before the tourney....

  I saw you posted a pic  a week or so ago, I can't find it now but  I should have looked closer.  I thought I was looking at  18'' - 20'' fish.    No matter what, That was a nice catch.     Ohh well, I said it and I will stick with it 49 and couple oz.      Weather will have to be right for that to happen but I always hope for a good bite on tournament day.     
What is the record ?   I can remember when two guys could go out and catch 49 pounds without throwing anything back .  Ohh the Good Ol days.  

Life is good.

 If tourney was Beulah to Van Hook you could see a high 40's weight. 

Those fish were van hookie fish.

I fished the east end this weekend and got taken off the water by three storms --- and yes while some biggys exist ---- and we caught some okers that would be nice tourney fish----- it was not consistent and I could not put a pattern together --- they were 2ft - to 29ft FOW.   I seen a lot of gas being burnt Saturday and the fish cleaning station was empty for the most part when we used it.   

WW tactics --- use em you will win.
