up noth vs the metro upl championship

Recommended Posts

I think this would be a fun thing to do at the end of the season.

Take the top 10 from both league's and fish out to see who is the the best... What do you all think.

I think this is a great idea. I hope the north division has successful participation like the metro league.

Juano, I like the idea. I think this would be a good spot to throw in a mystery lake, also. Everyone head to a central city then follow Matt out the unknown lake and just start fishing. Make it a real shootout for the championship!!

This definitely sounds like a good idea, but after the last Metro UPL event (March 10) I'm on the road for two weeks filming and at events, and at that point the ice could be iffy at the end of March. I'm all for getting something on the calendar, but someone else will have to run it. I do know that we're looking into something like this for next year, some kind of championship for the top 10 teams in the Metro UPL, maybe combine it and do the top 10 for both leagues for a 20 team championship?

Great stuff guys!

Jim, keep at it. You might need to just start with five teams or so and it will grow. We would come up and fish some but because of the Saturday events we won't have time to prefish. Mike and I still might just show up and fish blind without prefishing a few events though.

I like the mystery lake idea. I would even do that just for fun.

Would really like to participate in the UPL. From what folks have told me and what I've read it seems to be a great way to become a better angler. Any openings in the Northern league- I'm willing to drive from the metro to the events.

      Smallmouth should be on beds spawning. Good time to fish smallmouth. Fishing off shallow water off rocky islands on East side of Vermilion should be in play. Troll and throw spinners to shore.  Look for line where big rocks end and small rocks/gravel starts.

      We tried pretty hard for them over Memorial Weekend and overall it was slow for us. Never really figured anything out. Beat the banks and some main lake points. Seemed to get fish off the bank just a bit, 6-8fow. We did get some on Topwaters shallow that appeared to push up shallow for the day when the water warmed up 6 degrees.

      Don’t ya love when the weather forecasters are wrong?  S’pose to rain all weekend, but we were blessed with overcast/partly sunny weather.   Over the weekend, we fished around on 3 little lakes (all <200 acres) in Bemidji area (Clearwater county).  One lake was already up to 66 degrees in the middle!  Most vegetation is still low except a few lily pads were just hitting the surface at the shallows; bulrushes are still dried/brown.  With the warmer weather this week, I’ll bet the lakes will start filling out with vegetation in a matter of days and probably be growing fast.   Sunny/crappie bite was nice on Sat; dead on Sunday—had to work to find them though.  (Morning bites were poor--Afternoons much better.  Evening is always good…) (males were staging; females weren’t around yet)  Their location varied between hugging emergent bulrushes to being suspended at ~8 feet in ~15 feet of water.  (the suspended ones weren’t biting, though)  We were using slip bobbers with 1/32 flu flus and nightcrawlers. Found some nice perch hugging the bottom in 7-10 FOW jigging with 1/16 pink/white beetle-bou jigs.   Once sonny boy starting catching northerns casting a shad rap, then princess wanted to catch a nort too; so our fishing trip shifted from casting bobbers to trolling with spoons and the norts were very cooperative—getting 1-2 strikes every time down a simple shoreline of ~100 yds.  Norties were fat and healthy! Princess caught her PB northern!   Hoping to be back fishing around in Stearns and Morrison county (central MN) this weekend and got another getaway planned for next week.  Happy Fishing!

      Just was up at Johnson lake for the last week located right off hwy 38 in Bigfork. Had some slow days but caught a decent amount of Northern and a Walleye. At most, there was only one boat out on the lake at the same time as I was so it’s a nice quiet place.

      So tomorrow the 29th I’m headed over to the ford dam for some flatheads or channel cats. This is a free invitation to anyone who would like to join me for some relaxing time on the river!!! Feel free to message me for more details!! Planning on heading out at 10 and fishing until dark.

      We’re set up in Kab and so far very few gnats. Of course, that could be due to the 20 mph winds, 50 degree temps, or the rain shower that just went through.  It’s still good to finally be fishing and camping in Voyageurs again.
