BMJF IV is almost upon us.
For those that have not heard of this annual event here is a brief history.
It all started three years ago on the hot wind blasted banks of the Sheyenne diversion in West Fargo. A handful of FBO members gathered for a meet and greet, in the process they chose to test their fishing knowledge against each other with the winner boasting bragging rights along with a coveted donated prize.
The excitement generated from this event spilled over into the next year causing FBO members to organize a second gathering. This second gathering was held on the calm cool waters of Lake Ashtabula located north of Valley City in mid-south central North Dakota. This event allowed FBO members the chance to fish from shore or bring their water craft. The outing proved another overwhelming success due largely in part to a fellow member (KDM) offering his property to hold the weigh-in and fish fry.
Now entering its fourth year the old adage…if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it comes into play.
This year’s event is tentatively planned to be held once again on the pristine shores of Lake Ashtabula with fellow member KDM offering up his cottage to the after event festivities.
Along with introducing the event this thread will also serve as a forum to narrow down the date in which the event will be held.
Currently the dates that work best for our Host are: June 15th , July 13th or 20th or Aug. 3rd, 10th or 17th.
Please keep in mind this event is put together for the enjoyment of fellow FBO members you all are entitled to an opinion and your input is welcome.
The event itself is very unofficial there is no entry fee of any kind and donated gifts are exchanged amongst participants.
This thread will serve as a sounding board for the event however there will be non-mandatory unofficial rules meetings in the weeks to follow …
