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.

Have patience!! I'm not forgetting about this, I am in the midst of working with the DNR to make sure we have the appropriate permits if needed, I hope to hear back from them tomorrow! The schedule is set, just waiting on the permits to make it official

      Is the night bite going?
    • delcecchi
      I would surmise the slop bays across from the resort would be good for largies.  Crappies, next bay down from resort to the right of the point with the giant mansion on it.     Smallies, any rocky shoreline or rock pile, for example  Windsock Island and vicinity. Pike, various weedy areas mostly although I have never had much luck deep in the slop.      Maybe some of the folks who go the LOR will chime in.   At least you didn't ask where to catch walleye on the west end. 😊

      Went out Walleye fishing Saturday night and I caught this beauty. Measured 45 1/4" and estimated weight of close to 30#'s. Fought it for over 40 minutes. Caught on 6 pound line with a #4 hook. What an epic battle.
    • Fishguy20
      Going for some largemouth on pike lake near duluth tomorrow if I could get some advice that would be nice. Never fished it before 
    • Fishguy20
      So island was kind of a bust when I went a few weekends ago. It could be the fishermen or could be just bad fishing

      I know all those areas well.  I'm a Parsippany~ish kid myself.  Traffic did suck when the commute was 40 one way- now just 5.5, all backroads. @Wanderer Hey for boat rentals a license isn't needed?  I have my NJ boat lisc, but doubt they'd honor it.... To ALL!  Thanks for all the replies and help here... sooo looking forward to the trip. I will  indeed look closer as the time draws nearer, and omg, I would love to be a boat buddy (we say boat b!tch), and consider this my "ask".. Thanks again fellas! Tight lines!   Mr Mayor

      Even serious anglers get seriously lonely. Fished too many metro lakes and beyond to count. Fishing has always Kept me sane and sober, its what I and I do it well. Recently moved, wondering if there's anyone out there who might wanna swap some tips, tricks, and hopefully some big ones. Not very good at this kind of stuff but hey, what do I got to lose by asking?!  Thanks, M.E.
    • Michael Endres
      Loved across the street from it for years, on timbershore lane. I've caught monsters, several shore spots if you know where to findem. I just moved to inver grove heights and am looking for someone (or more!) To go back asap and catch some whoppers  
    • Michael Endres
      I've ice fished it a few times, this year actually. It's unnamed crappies and northerns, it's true it's private land but I've never had any trouble, guys in the buildings parking lot always waved to me.
