UPLlogoNEW_web.jpg

I'm proud to announce the 9th season of the Ultimate Panfish League (UPL) presented by Matt Johnson Outdoors, Hot Spot Outdoors and Thorne Brothers!!

I'm very excited to start another season and work with Hot Spot Outdoors for promotions and solid info! The crowd here certainly enjoys the sport of ice fishing and hopefully we can carry over that excitement by sharing our league's stories and event recaps/photos.

That being said, we currently have a couple spots that opened up to anyone interested. It's first come, first serve. Please visit the www.ultimatepanfishleague.com website for more info about the league and for contact info. Otherwise I can answer any questions right here.

Looking forward to another great year and very excited to share it with HSO!!!

Highly recommended if you like panfishing, ice fishing, competition, or just getting together with other anglers.

Also if you want to see your fishing skill level increase big time, this will do it! I have been in the UPL since it first started and it really helped me to become very deadly, and Have seen it do the same for many of the participants. i now look forward to winter as my favorite time to chase panfish because of the UPL!

1+, you'll learn more about ice fishing and "how to", fishing these tournaments in one season then you would just plain fishing!

Looks like fun. Any spots still open? If so I will have to find a partner. Any rules on alternate's filling in if someone isn't able to make it for a particular outing?

There is actually a spot left if you want it... and yes, you can have different a substitute if your partner misses an event. However, the team captain has to be present for your event points to count...

Matt, we want to get something started. I think we could go from Chads area, up to mine and even farther north! I see this as being a great opportunity to get together with fellow panfish anglers and see what the great white north has to offer!

You guys know my email address, and if you don't, it's in my signature.

I would like get it started and also see what feedback we get from other anglers. This would be great to see this up in our neck of the woods.

Jim, keep us informed. Maybe if needed to fill spots and open on our schedule some of us original UPL'ers could make a remote stop.

      Glad to hear that construction is starting, thanks for the updates!   Would be cool to get a periodic picture or two of the construction over time for those who happen to swing through Cook and stop by. Appreciate the info.

      Ice on the majority of lakes on the Iron Rage excluding big water and the mine pits.  I did see someone out today in a hub shelter on a smaller lake.  I'm shooting for a Red Lake trip Sunday if not I'll be fishing smaller waters around Grand Rapids

      Its icing up pretty good from LF to Fort already.  Big change overnight last night.
    • monstermoose78
      Yes someone went through on skogman

      On the south end...  Most open water anglers put away the boats and are looking forward to ice fishing.  Ice forming on back bays and on different parts of the big lake.  With the cold snap, things are coming along nicely.  When the time is right, resorts will communicate when initial ice accesses will be available.  That time is not yet, but it won't be too long!  On the Rainy River...   A few anglers out braving the elements with good success, but for the most part, anglers have boats put away for the year.  Some anglers fished last week with decent success and some big walleyes.  With increased current this fall, river ice will be suspect.  Back bays iced up. Up at the NW Angle...  Ice is forming throughout the Angle.  Some reports around the inlet of 3 inches of ice, but no ice travel is recommended.  Most bays and some areas throughout islands iced up.  NW Angle resorts will communicate when ice fishing begins.

      Just saw the report  
    • Mnfisher
      Heard a rumor that someone went through the ice on Skogman.  Anyone know for sure?  
    • Coleman
      Cripes, I better get the boat out one last time this week.  Although I'm sure the river will be open for a few more weeks.      
    • leech~~
      That's ok.  Now that your here may be you can post something more current!  Welcome.  😉
