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 Lucky. I'm fishing Gabby's, so I was a little bit interested in where your crew was fishing.

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.

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!

      Hello FM family!!  I HAVE A 2000 18.5' Fisher DXV boat and am having problems of water getting into the boat.  I have filled up the bottom of the boat with water to see if something is cracked on the boat itself and have found nothing.  It seems like the only time water comes in is when I use live well pumps. I have a guy replacing all the hoses that would have water going through them to see if one is cracked.  The water that comes in is enough that I have to run the bilge pump about every half and hour.  If I forget to run bilge then I have so much water I can't get up on plane when I take off.  Once the hoses are replaced and water still gets in, what would be my next step??  Cracked livewells??? I have two of them in this boat.  Any ideas??  Thanks!

      I'm doing a day trip there on Saturday, will post afterwards. I plan to just fish the big basin area humps and points.

      Just looking for general advice... Taking our grandson on his 1st Rainy Lake boat camping trip, 7/01-7/05. We'll be near Kempton Entrance on the east side. I've been here many times before, but never over the 4th. Plan to target all species, but want 'eyes for supper. Are the walleyes on the reefs yet or still transitioning? Depths? Leeches or minnows? Bass/pike still in shallows? Main goal is to give him some opportunities for some fish. Thanks 'Pout

      Hay Creek in Red Wing is probably your closest option.  Otherwise the Kinni, Rush, etc, just over the boarder in Wi is a good fishery.

      I was kind of restless last night so since it was a bit windy I decided to go for a quick trip to a nearby small lake that I rarely go to. Tried lindy rigging leeches but the sunfish were on the chomp! I eventually went to a shallow weed point and marked a bunch of fish. Started pitching small jigs/plastics and absolutely pounded the crappies. I have never in my life caught so many small ones. Lots of 5-7" with the occasional big one 13-14" mixed in... I did not feel like cleaning fish so tossed all back. Should be a phenomenal crappie lake in a couple years...
