Leading Edge Tournament Series 2004


Recommended Posts

FishingMinnesota’s official fishing league is about to begin!!
Leading Edge Tournament Series 2004 Statewide Division.

We are little under a month away from our first event on Cass Lake. There are still some openings left.

This year, in order to get more people involved and give more teams the opportunity to fish these great events, we have opened up team registration on a single event basis.

Yes, you can still register for the entire series, with the added benefit of competing for the end of the year payout, but for those teams out there who just want to find out what LETS is all about or teams that have scheduling conflicts, this decision was made with YOU in mind!

What is LETS? It is a multi-species, team format fishing league. In the Statewide division, it is set up as a two day contest. First day fishing the evening and the second day fishing the morning. Winners are determined by overall weight of fish caught. Lets represents all levels of fishing skill and knowledge. LETS participants have fished out of everything from 12ft Jon boats to 20ft Rangers.

What do you get out of LETS?

First off, we fish some of the states most diverse and productive waters, providing all teams with a good chance of competing.

Secondly, LETS members are more than willing to share information on techniques, location and presentation to better your success. Everyone who fishes LETS has come away learning something new about tourney style fishing. If you have ever thought about trying out your skill in a low pressure, fun event, LETS is for you.

Thirdly, LETS gives you a great opportunity to meet fellow FM’ers and make friendships that last. Many of us now fish year round together and stay in constant contact. The Saturday night meal which is provided and is paid for through league dues, is a great chance to sit back, relax, trade tips and just have general all around fun.

Lastly, LETS gives you a low pressure venue to hone your tourney skills. Some of LETS former members have gone on to fish the RCL, MWT, and other large tourney circuits. Many LETS members have also gone on to become moderators and prostaff for FishingMinnesota and equipment manufacturers.

Cost for LETS is $300 per team to fish all 4 events, or $75 a team for individual events. ($50 entry fee plus $25 league dues)

      There were a lot of ATV/SxS running around the lake but I found it quite slippery even with AWD engaged.  I did see a couple of snowmobiles crossing the lake.  There is enough snow to keep the slides lubricated, especially when the temperature is above freezing.  If your track is studded that would help traction and slide lubrication.

      It looks like it's ATV/SxS season on the lake. Snowmobile season is on temporary (or permanent) hiatus.

      Was back Tuesday-Thursday this week after I discovered that walleye season ends on Sunday, February 25th.  I thought that the season has closed the last day of February in recent years.  I see that I fished on Monday, February 28th two winters ago so lucky I didn't get busted then.   The ice was in very good shape.  I found 15-18 inches of solid ice in the areas I checked.  There was no standing water on the ice and very little snow as shown in the 3 pictures of the McKinley Park landing from Thursday afternoon.  When the temperature was below freezing, the ice was very slippery.  When it warmed up mid day it wasn't as bad.  The landing was starting to deteriorate today, but with the cold weather on Friday it should freeze over.  It may start to get bad again by Sunday when it warms up.  Full size vehicles were still driving out close to Birch Island so apparently that path is still good.   Fishing was very good for late season.  Most of my walleyes were again 9-12 inches, but I did catch a 21, 24, and 27.  I was lucky to catch my limit of 14-15 inchers today to bring home for a meal.  The walleyes preferred small rainbows, but also liked lively chubs.  I caught four fish on the same small rainbow today when I was running low on small ones.  I finally gave up on that minnow when I went 20 minutes without a bite.  I had 3 rainbows come off the hook on their own; one when I dropped it in the hole and the other two when I dropped them to the bottom.  I think that happens when you hook them in the soft part of their body.  I caught my first tulibee of the winter (15 inches) and it really stunk up the house.  I also caught a lot of perch for the first time this winter.  I only caught 1 perch the previous 14 days I fished, but I caught 11 perch in these 3 last days, including six that were 11-13 inches long.  I wish I liked to eat perch so I could have kept them.  The hardest bite I had this week was by the pictured 8 inch walleye.  This little guy grabbed that full sized minnow and pulled it quickly to to bottom of the hole.  (However the 27 inch walleye did peel off a bit of drag bringing her in).  Morning bite from 830 to 1230 was best.   If you venture out the last weekend of the season, good luck.  Be cautious of ice conditions since the sun can really melt some holes in the ice this late in the season.

      Thinking about one last outing, any information on the ice?

      There's not much snow left from what I can see on our Ring cam.  This is facing North across Niles Bay.  Also, the temp is 44 at this moment so what snow might be left is going fast.

      @Rick G   have you changed your approach or how you are fishing with no snow cover this year? It seems to really have changed things. Fish are spooky to  any movement above the ice.  Even just jigging a rod with your hand etc. spooks fish. Weed lines are not dying off etc., fish are staying up shallower etc.   I have had a lot more luck just dead sticking and bobber fishing and being away from holes or intentionally drilling holes in slush pockets or drifts to eliminate shadows etc.

      Awesome cause Rick!!👍👍👌

      Fishing has been pretty good for the most part with the exception of a slow day mixed in here and there. Been on a few different lakes in the last week. Ice conditions continue to fluctuate depending on warm and cold spells.  Right now there is 7-8 inches on the lakes I have been on. Snow cover is just about gone again, and with the warm days coming I think our ice season might be coming to an end locally.  Today I fished with a good buddy and we were on a mission... To find enough fresh fish to feed the folks at a local veterans home Friday dinner.  Mission accomplished!!!   Found a good mix of perfect eater size fish😁.
