Statewide LETS, Lake Ida -Alexandria area, June 26th!

16 posts in this topic

It won't be long and the Leading Edge Tournament Series is heading to Lake Ida, near Alexandria, MN on Sunday, June 26th! We are looking for a few teams to fill some openings for this event.

This is a multi-species tournament, so it's a great time to meet some new people and fish some great waters. Trophies for the top 3 savvy teams and 100% payback on tournament fees to boot!

Cost of this event will be $50 per team.

We will be camping at a team member's place near Alexandria for this event. Join us for a day or weekend of fun!

Contact me at chunord@yahoo.com to sign up.

One member from every team should have received directions to Ron's campground via email.

Another note, we are using the northern-most East access on Lake Ida for the event. (There are 2 accesses on the east side, we are using the northern one.)

Still not too late to sign up if anyone else would like to fish with us for the day.

When is everyone getting up to Alex to start pre-fishing. We made it out for only about 2 hours last night for the first time this year. I really think Rock bass should be a legal species!

bush.. I am leaving about 5am saturday.. not sure how long it will take from lindstrom.. I'm guessing about 2.5 hours.. maybe get to Ida about 8am?... I have never been there, not has Tom... we are flying blind!.

But I still like our chances.. my gues is bass are commingoff of post pawn.. pike should be easy to catch, walleye may be tough?

Rock bass.. no way!!!!!!

Deitz,

I think you are right on in your predictions, I don't think limits of bass and pike will be an issue.

ROCK BASS-- on the Whitefish chain we caught 16 rock bass during the actual tournament, and then in two hours on Tuesday we caught 7 rock bass, two in 4', three in 8', one in 12', and a real hog in 32'. I don't think I have caught that many rock bass in my entire life besides these two lakes.

      We had a good bite on 1/2 crawlers today! Boated 45 walleyes and kept our limits of fish that were all between 15-1/2" and 19-3/4 "! Released at least 6 slot fish. Largest was a fat 25-1/2 inch fish. Best over all sized fish limit all summer! The walleyes were stuffed with either May fly nymphs or molted crayfish.

      I've fished the hex hatch many times. In wisconsin.The hexs are out at my lakevplace in grand rapids Mn.  its usually a little later on the river. So this weekend into next week and the following week ought to be good. Late in the evening.. like  9:30 on...  I haven't been to the straight for years... I wish you'd let me know how it goes...

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)
