BASS LEAGUES IN THE AREA?

10 posts in this topic

I know there are a couple bass leagues in the area and I have been trying to get into one now for a couple years.

If anyone knows that there is an open spot in any of the leagues I would be interested.

I would assume their would be some teams that drop out every year or maybe some drop out because of the new permit fees.

Thanks Hester

Hi Hester,

I am not sure of any but do you have a partner or would you be looking for one? I have always wanted to be in a league also.

yes Chad, I would already have a partner. But if he falls through I will keep you in mind.

Chad, My regular partners I'am sure are going to be hunting that weekend. If you want to fish with me that would be great. I only live a mile from the lake and I usually get out there almost everyday. Bass isn't my specialty out there, but by then maybe it will be.

hester,

There is two different leagues that are ran out of hutch. There is a Thursday night league that I fished two years about, that has about 18 boats. There is a great anglers in this league, but i believe they are full becuase of the new law from the DNR. They are a bass/walleye and big pike league.

Monday nights is also ran out of hutch, and they are 100% bass. There is 9 boats in this league, which i fished this year and years past. There are some great anglers in this league as well. You will be able to get into this league, just have to go to the meeting.

If you want more information or have any other questions, just shot me a email.

Hester, there is a league ran out of Keg's in Winstead as well. I've been in that one the last three summers and it is Bass, Walleye, and a side pike pot. We have a 15 boat limit and we usually get between 10-13 or so every week. It is also a thursday league. If you have questions give Keg's a call and ask for Woody. Tell him Fever sent ya. If your too good... disregard message... I don't need too much competition. j/k. grin.gif

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW

      I am planning on kayaking and fishing the Cannon River this season--between Cannon Falls and Hwy 61. I just want to know if the current is generally swift or lazy, i.e., can I paddle BACK to my entrance spot or do you  need to drift downstream and do the two vehicle thing. I understand it may depend on how low or high the river is at any given time, but in general, when things are 'normal', can you paddle back with little difficulty?

      I'll keep it short and simple. The causes of boom and bust on Mille Lacs.    1. Improperly managed slot limits. Too many large fish are allowed in the lake.  2. Netting during spawn. Poor spawning success.    The recent years of high catch rates rates indicate a good 2013 year class but most importantly it is a red flashing light for anyone paying attention. High catch rates are a result of good population AND low or decreasing forage. I put AND in caps because fish won't bite like they have  when they're not hungry.    Cut down that year class class before it's too late. I give it 2 more summers before another crash is inevitable.    Round and round we go, where it stops, nobody knows.

      After using most of the brands you've mentioned, I absolutely love Lunkerhunt frogs...real lifelike, and don't seem to fill up with water as much as the others. They also hold up really well--caught some pike and bowfin without them getting destroyed. I have been using the "Croaker" color exclusively, but definitely picking up some other patterns. They also make a popper frog which is great if you want to make a little more noise.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.
