New State President & 2020 Schedule

Good Evening. Wisconsin Bass Federation is happy to announce Chad Klein is our new President.

Chad will be a perfect fit and we look forward to his leadership in our Federation. Our 2020 schedule was also implemented during our tournament committee meeting at the beginning of the month. With us having great Membership in Illinois, they have agreed to keep an event close to them.

Our First event of 2020 will be on Lake Geneva May 9th We have never fished a qualifier on Geneva but it will not disappoint.
Our next event we will head out to Big Green on June 7th. Every Angler around knows what lives in this water, just ask Dan Brovarney and Kevin Fassbind both of them have amazing history out there. I think the biggest weight of the year will go across the scales at this event, even greater than “The Madison Chain” which I believe Brain Sarri dropped a whopping 24.96 on the scales during that event.

Our final Qualifier for 2020 will be “The Madison Chain” on June 28th. This fishery has them guys! This place can show out We will probably hit this event rite on the money. The committee sure picked pristine waters, and we are looking for to seeing everyone of you at these events next year.

Minn Kota® Debuts New Portable Digital Battery Chargers at ICAST

Minn Kota launches the only shallow-water anchor that gives anglers control from anywhere in the boat, plus unlocks more water for precise, anchored fishing with a new 15-foot version.

mk_CMYK_logoRacine, Wisconsin (8/4/2017) Using a Minn Kota® Talon® for precise boat control has never been easier. In fact, there are now five ways for anglers to activate the Talon from anywhere in the boat. The newest way utilizes Bluetooth® communication to pair the Talon with Humminbird® units on the boat for total boat control on one console (including the ability to pair Humminbird units with select Minn Kota trolling motors). Anglers can also engage the anchor using a foot switch, with a wireless remote (every Talon comes standard with two), via the new Talon smartphone app, and with the Talon’s built-in control panel.

According to Minn Kota Brand Manager Brad Henry, “When it’s time to Talon down we give anglers options so they can lock on a spot no matter where they are in the boat or their style of fishing.”

Another major advancement is the introduction of Minn Kota’s new 15-foot Talon, the deepest shallow-water anchor ever made. It allows anglers to lock down on more spots to effectively unlock more water.

Hall of Fame angler Al Lindner explains how Talon’s depth delivers results for his multi-species pursuits. “I use it for catfish in rivers, for crappies in the spring, naturally for bass, and in more cases than I ever thought – for walleyes. Yeah, you heard me right, walleyes.”

Also new for 2017 is a clever work light built into the Talon top cap. When fishing in dark conditions, the work light illuminates the entire back deck of the boat to help anglers when rigging and landing fish at night. It has three brightness settings and white or blue LED light options for ideal illumination.

Talon allows anglers to anchor in any condition with three user-selectable anchoring modes – another exclusive feature. The AUTO-DRIVE MODE powers the spike into the bottom with three increasingly aggressive hits. A SOFT BOTTOM MODE is ideal for less aggressive anchoring and easier retraction in muddy or silted bottom. When the wind is blowing, the ROUGH WATER MODE performs three consecutive auto-drive sequences at 10-second intervals for a secure hold when the boat rises and falls in waves.

Talon’s electro-mechanical design keeps the motor above the waterline for silent stealth below the surface. Talon also deploys vertically and out of the way, helping eliminate unwanted tangles when fighting boat-side fish. Also, anglers can add the tilt bracket accessory for easy tilt function for passing under low-hanging obstacles.

In addition to the new 15-footer, Talons are also available in 8-, 10- and 12-foot models. They all feature Bluetooth technology with a variety of color combinations including red/black, blue/black, silver/black, silver/white, all black and all white. The new Talons will be available in October 2017 and will retail for $1,899.99 (8-foot), $1,999.99 (10-foot), 2,099.99 (12-foot) and $2,499.99 (15-foot).
