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.

      We bring a weather and an FM radio. Cell phone coverage is sporadic, but you can find a signal almost anywhere (but usually it originates from Canada). Bad weather can come in a hurry, so it is nice to be able to know what is coming in advance.

      Do you know anyone who reloads? Ammo has been bought up with the civil unrest currently going on.

      I would agree with James about tough bite. The last few days have been tough. You wont see those mayflies in Big Bay, because they all hatched last week. We have had high heat no wind to go with mayflies,then fish flies so I think that explains the problem. It will get better soon as minnows become primary food source for eyes. Wont see you out there for a while as I have to leave for a week. Good Luck !!

      Unfortunately this forum has gone really quiet. All lake superior users moved to the Facebook group:(

      I may not get a chance to fish Leech before this fall, but I still really liked reading your report Joe.  Thank you for posting.

      One more question about communication and weather alerts on eastern Rainy Lake.   We could occasionally get  an AT&T signal, especially after we had signed up for the Canadian signal.  We were about 16 miles east of the visitor center, and at the Kemp Channel entrance.  The signal strength kinda depended on weather conditions and time of day.   I am looking at the possibility of getting a weather alert radio.  It states:  Public Alert Certified Weather Radio, Receives all 7 NOAA Weather Channel and Reports.  It is also an AM/FM radio.  Does this actually work in the mid-lake area, or would you recommend something different?

      Ive been up since Friday. Until today ive been out in short stints hour here or there each day. Sometimes just graphing areas looking for pods of fish. I caught a few fish each time but considering the thick pods I fished it was tough to get them to go. This morning I finally got out and hit it a bit harder. Ive had zero luck dragging lindys through these fish. Ive gone to camping on them with slip bobbers and leeches. 15-18 feet. The bite definitely hinges on getting some wave action from the wind and that's been tough to come by. There was a window this morning where it was an alright chop and I was able to get 4 in that 14.5-16" range. I tossed back a couple that were about 19 3/4. I'd rather eat a 15" personally. But again I was on carpets of fish and it was pick one off here and there. I fished 4 different reefs for those fish. Lots of Fish flies. So annoying. I did not see substantial evidence of any may flies. I'll be up most of the next 10 days. I'd think there bite would pick up soon.

      On the south end...  Lots of limits of nice walleyes this week with plenty of larger slot fish (19.5" - 28") and trophy walleyes (over 28").  Schools of fish all around the lake.  From the Lighthouse and Morris Point Gap area which is adjacent to Pine Island to Zippel Bay to reefs and mud near Long Point and Rocky Point all producing.  Garden Island area also holds nice schools of walleyes.  The go to presentation is pulling spinners with crawlers or leeches at 1.0 - 1.3 mph.  Some anglers are doing well trolling crankbaits as well on lead core line or downriggers.  Nice schools of walleyes also staged over deep mud.  Some fish are shallow, 7- 15', other fish holding in 23 - 31'.  Hammered gold, gold/glow, pink, and orange hot colors this week.       On the Rainy River...   Sturgeon anglers catching some good fish as the season opened on July 1st.  Fishing holes in the river with a 3 ounce no roll sinker and sturgeon rig loaded with crawlers and/or frozen shiners.   Nice smallies in rocky areas.  Pike are also active cruising weedy bays, bay mouths and current breaks.  Walleyes hanging out on flats and can be caught with crawler harnesses or trolling crankbaits. Up at the NW Angle...  Until the US / Canada border opens, guests can travel across the lake staying and fishing in MN waters.  There are shuttle services available and fishing for multi species has been excellent.  Check with your favorite NW Angle resort for options.   Excellent fishing for walleyes, pike and bass continue.  Schools of walleyes on structure, over sand and on mud.  Nice walleyes 8 - 17' on the sand or 25 - 28' around structure.  The best presentation is drifting and trolling spinners with crawlers or a minnow.  Pike and smallmouth bass active in weedy bays.  Bucktails for pike retrieved slow working well.
