Saturday Bass League

Recommended Posts

Bassman55

Has anybody heard anything about this? I know that they didn't do it last year, but I was wondering if they are trying to get it together again.

The guy that ran this league passed away, that's why they haven't been having these tournaments. I've heard his sons who helped run the league were thinking of starting it back up, but I haven't heard anything for sure.

The only tournaments I know of right now are ones that bass clubs have with there members. I fished a couple tournaments on thursday nights a couple years back for 15 dollars a boat. They were competitive, but fun. I also think these were put on by the same people that did the Sat. bass league. They haven't been having these weekday tournaments either.

You know we could have a FM get together sometime this summer. They have one down in the metro area. It sounds like there maybe enough interest. If we kept it small enough and low key we could eliminate the need for a permit. More for fun than fishing for the $$.

If interested maybe we could start a thread on the Bass forum. hardest part would be choice of a lake, to many good ones to pick from.

The North Stars are out of Fergus. I have fished with them, but I am looking for something else. The Maplewood club is out of Pelican Rapids, but they limit their membership and no one ever really quits or joins. The Rough Rider club is out of Fargo, but from what I've heard they aren't much of a club anymore. I was just looking for some smaller tournements, not 50 boat ones, around the area.

What are you looking for? A 10 boat, 20 boat, team or individual? $25.00 or $50.00 entry fee? Small lakes, big lakes, anglers with a lot of experience in tournaments or a beginner level venue. I checked Classic B and did not find one money tournament listed in the Fergus area. Northwest Bass used to fish Dead, Pelican by Ashby on a consistent basis back when they were still around. Not sure why there are no Tournament circuits that visit that area. To far away? shouldn't be, they drive to Pokegema, Vermillion on occassion. There should still be some resorts that would be willing to host as a weigh in site. I have a summer place up in the Fergus area and would also be interested in some type of tournament format. My idea would be more for fun, low entry, less than twenty boats, learn a few more lakes. Nothing blood and guts.

I really liked the way that the Saturday bass league was set up when it first started. No club, no membership, just show up pay your $20-$40 and fish. It was a 5 bass limit and you could fish with a partner or by yourself. It payed back nearly 100% that day, not at some big end of the year tourement.

Maybe we could form our own FM tourney or just a get together. bassman's same day pay back would work. Try to keep it locale to Fergus area? I would be game.

I think I would even be intrested in this, if it was set up this way. Show up and pay and at the end have the pay out. that way if I can't make up a weekend or two its no big deal.

As summer gets closer, maybe we will share some e-mail addresses and set something up. Sounds like we could get a few boats together for some fun.

Bassman,Greg and Donny have had quite a few inquiries about the SBL and as of a few days ago it sounds like it may well be a possibility with the exception of a few less tourneys (down to 5 or 6). Keep your fingers crossed,great bunch of guys.

I might even run up for one or two of these bad boys. I bet I could maybe bring a couple boats with too.

That would be a great idea to get together a tourney....it is hard to find any good ones that a weekend angler can get in on

Still waiting on word on if the two sons will resurrect the league. Lots of people interested, both on here and from people I know in the Fergus area.

I recently emailed Greg & he's checking on permits with the DNR and a few other things. He said he'd get back to me in a week or so to see if it's a go this year.

Hope it works out,great bunch to fish with.

      Soon as I can get my car in the yard.  I don't have water though, so temps don't matter.  Even if it's cold and sloppy yet, I can still hang out inside and grill outside.

      Depends on the year and since we are on an island, it really depends on ice and/or when the dock company can drop our dock. Usually early May
    • JBMasterAngler
      I’m really hoping to make it up there on Saturday. Might try a couple different spots, pending success rate.

      Also depends on if your married or not, or want to stay that way! 😄  At my buddies old place since he had an out house we would just bring water and start using it when we could get the heat up with a fire place and a few elc, heaters as to not die. Then we were good! 😉

      Hello everyone,    I know I'm new to this website, but I've been fishing for a while now. A few years ago I picked up a Black Betty 6061 for ice fishing and I bent the handle trying to put it into a Frabil hard case on an exceptionally cold day (dumb me). I wrote a few emails to 13 Fishing/called 5 times and explained the situation and they told me I would have to pay for my parts. I said that was fine because it was my fault (even though I thought the handle should be a little sturdier).   Flash forward a 2 weeks later and I have my new handle. I took the old handle off and put the new one on, but the retaining screw that holds the washer for the nut in place wouldn't fit. The new handle 13 Fishing sent to me has a screw hole tapped too small. I called 13 and they were not aware of a screw size change. I asked them to send me a screw that would fit the handle and they said okay. 2 Weeks later, no screw. I called them again and explained that I had been over a month without this reel operational and no one had sent anything. I told them that I had a fishing trip coming up in the next two days and they could either overnight the screw to me or send it to the location I was going to be fishing. They said they would send it and it didn't come before the trip, nor did it come after the trip I just came back from.    They either sent me the wrong handle that doesn't fit my old BB, or they changed the dimensions of their design. I'm just trying to get my reel operational and it seems like such an easy thing. I'm probably going to go down to the store and just grab a small screw that will fit, but it seemed too easy for 13 Fishing to send me the part. How should I deal with 13 Fishing now? Has anyone else dealt with this issue before? I really liked 13 Fishing's gear, but if this is what happens when something goes wrong, I may end up turning elsewhere for the $$.

      I always use a dead stick next to a jigging hole.  The water is clear so you can get pretty high off the bottom to bring them in and then lower it to them.  Red hook on the dead stick during the day and anything glow after dark if you want but I use pink.  I usually use fat heads or rainbow with good success.  My go to is a pink and blue rattle spoon or red.  Just off of structure during the day with a nice easy move of 15 feet or so to the top of the structure morning or night.

      Now it sounds like they’re shooting for October. Won’t be possible by fishing opener

      Depends on the year.  Typically early May.   Some years you can get away with earlier....

      You are welcome Icehawk. I want some great fishermen there to teach and pass on knowledge. I also want to showcase the friendships that can be made here.
