Bass Tournament on Tetonka

19 posts in this topic

I need some information on the bass tourney scheduled for Sept 9 on Tetonka. People have been asking about entry fees and number of people in boats, etc. Any info would be appreciated.

southern mn bass tour is full, entry fee was $500 for the full season (5 events ) 6 if you qualify in the top ten for the championship, however it is a club event and is not open to anyone not signed up at the begin of the year. Sorry,

to my knowledge there is no other event there on the 9th OR ELSE I DON'T THINK THE DNR WOULD HAVE APPROVED OUR PERMIT BUT THANKS FOR THE INTEREST .

Hey Lucky.

Is your last tourney on Tetonka or Madison on the 9th? I heard it was moved from Shields to Madison, but maybe I heard wrong.

Thank you.

Thanks and good luck.

Catchn is a night time walleye turny and I don't think it will be at the same time as when the bass fishermen will be on the lake.

Near a full moon. Good luck!

Great, having just read the latest edition of Outdoor News and the article on delayed mortality of fish in tournaments that should equate to roughly 240 dead bass! Anyhow, having a place on the north end for twelve years now I have never fished for bass and was surprised at the catch. At least it wasn't a walleye tourney!

as for the delayed mortality article . fish care is my #1 concern and as required by the dnr all tournament directors are required to moniter the release site for 48 hrs and i will have to tell you i have never seen a dead bass floating im sure there is a lot of truth to that article but stattistics such as temp current handling care probally all played a part in in that study

I couldn't agree more MAVS, i thought it was a good article and it's our responsibility as sportsman to become educated and respect the resource.

There are no fish in Tetonka!

Is there any way of finding out how many were Smallmouth Bass.

Tetonka is a good lake. One of the best all around lakes in the area.

      I know its not attached to you. But the issue is with it being attached to the dog and if its running full speed and it gets caught on something. The injuries can occur when its a sudden stop and the collar around the neck is pulled hard from the weight of the dog.   Sounds like to you need to get back to the basics with the check cord and get back to sit, stay and come. You can work her with the check cord in a hallway at home with the doors closed, then move to a larger  grassy area etc. Keep the sessions short and praise, praise and praise some more when she comes back when called.   You never want to give a command you cant enforce and that's where the check cord comes in handy. We have all been there before. But if your not confident with her in the water next to a road you need to go back and revisit those commands and how to enforce them until she is ready. its just not worth risking injury.   You have to make the retrieving fun and if she doesn't bring it back your done for that session, and then she doesn't get to retrieve. Let her see you put the dummy away and then start another session at a later time. Praise, praise and praise when she does it correctly.   Dogs will pick up on your body language frustrations etc.  Just takes lots of reps and keep them short and be positive and she will get there.

      I actually don't have that long leash attatched to me. Its 100' I believe and the only reason I leave it on her is because Round Lake is right by a busy road so if she wants to bolt after a rabbit or something I can quickly grab that leash. Also sometimes she'll grab the dummy and want to swim around with it so I give a few tugs to let her know her job is to bring it to me, not swim in circles. It's just a safety measure because she isn't quite ready for fully off leash training just yet. I almost never actually need to grab it.    Thanks for the advice though, the last thing I'd ever want to do is hurt a dog, especially mine. I never throw the dummy past where it's safe to walk so if she did get it wrapped in cattails or something and got stuck I'd quickly get her.

      Thanks for having me Minnesota. I wasn't able to float the Ottertail river but I did fish the lake every morning. Most fish the first 3 days came on top water whopper plopper. The last day, the water temperature heated up to almost 80 so I changed it up a little bit and fished deep water 10-20 feet and caught fish deep. Here's some of the better fish from this week. The fishing up here is great. Can't wait to make it back.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      Thanks for the advice Dave  I dont let Finn fetch on check cord any more. I only used it when he was a pup

      There are public beaches at both Hoodoo Point in Tower and McKinley Park in Soudan. Cliff

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.
