Saturday Bass League

Recommended Posts

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.

      Last winter was not easy for me either but this winter I will be going to some other lakes that i use to fish with my grandpa. The only good bites I got on last winter were the ones the St. Cloud boys invited me on. I just reached out to get a custom ice rod from a guy near me. I am excited to see what he can do for me. I will post as often as I can and if I get on a good bite you could tag along if ya want.

      I’ll be winterizing my boat and prepping my ice gear this weekend. I’m usually excited for ice, but my fishing was terrible last winter and this is way too early a start. We should still be out on open water. Around Arden Hills, Shoreview I’ve noticed Valentine and Silver are 100% locked. Island still had a small patch of open water yesterday.  I’m not anxious to cut holes and check ice depth yet. It’s easier to make safe decisions this year when I’m so much less excited for ice fishing.

      From 2 to 5 to 7?  What started as 2 fishermen Tylor and John last week. Wednesday Bill and Hays spent the night and walked out with not much luck. All though Bill is a photographer  and said he never wet a line as he snapped pic after pic of the sunset. I caught the tail end of it and should of snapped a picture myself, as it was spectacular to say the least.  Not even sure there's a name for the color,  maybe blood red? Thursday morning hays was not feeling very well so Bill went out on his own. Down at the lake working I saw 5 fishermen counting Bill. Yesterday it was up tp 7. I have had a dozen calls, how thick is the ice,  how's the fishing? Buddy Hillmen of Hillmens resort says around 5 inches, They are  allowing  walking traffic out to a mile where his road stakes stop.  I have heard of 5 fish caught and 1 lost at the hole so that's the fishing report.  Some one said it would be a zoo up here this weekend since the south end had that strong wind . I would have to disagree  as I have no one spending the night here until after thanksgiving? All the house are prepped down at the lake and ready to go other then a few little things. If anyone stays down there they will have to be cleaned again but that's fine with me.  Jonny boy did not get out as he was a little under the weather.  I did get a shot at a grouse with my recurve going out to my stand Thursday night. It was a shot through the brush and my arrow just missed. I 'll always give up being quiet when I have a chance at a grouse, either when I'm going, sitting or leaving my hunting area.  Years ago I took a grouse in the air with my recurve and flu flu arrow. I would love a repeat of that. Plus the hammer loves the way I make grouse as do I.  I was going to pull my deer stand but now have second thoughts . Some venison in the freezer would be nice. I like cutting up steak in super thin pieces then quick frying for a minute steak sandwich. Plus I'm still trying to harvest a deer with my recurve

      There are people out ice fishing please use extreme caution!! Beaver runs can keep the ice thinner in a narrow area. Fish can cause thinner spots as well. I think I will check two early ice lakes today. 
    • monstermoose78
      I know a lake around my area that has ice anglers on it and it normally has the first Spearers as well, but I did not see a shack on the ice yet
    • iFishMN.YT
      I was out in the west metro, found a nice solid 3.75 in a shallow backwater type area I checked, but the main lake was too thin still.  Got one small sunny in 5 ft of water, it counts!  Thats the earliest in the season I have ever pulled a fish out a hole. Few more days for the locked up lakes I think,

      bump give ice reports if you can. just don't go on any ice to give a report, be safe.   I know my 300 acre lake in aitkin froze  over last weekend, but ice depth could vary greatly this time of year.
    • Fishing Frenzy
      Anyone know of the lake is froze over? Or how much ice is on the lake if it is?
    • Schwarz04
      I’ll be out looking tomorrow... Have a spot in mind that I’m optimistic about. Which direction from downtown were you?

      Got the hangers today and really like them. I did have to drill a slot so they would work but easy peasy. The metal can be bent a bit to get the angle wanted. Moved the turkey fans to a different room and centered the 3 euros. I like the way it ended up.     New Age Taxidermy Head Honcho European Mounts on Amazon Smile
