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)

I tell you I wish I could make it there for this event. Cass Lake is a top notch fishery with excellent walleye, pike, perch and Muskie fishing. Also good populations of panfish and largemouth bass.

I'd expect some excellent scores oout of this event.

Not to mention the opprtunity to fish with some very good fisherman and great people.

Good Luck to those who can make it.

      here are a few of my favorites:   1) cube breast meat, marinate in Italian dressing over night, wrap in bacon, grill    2) cube breast meat, cover with shore lunch or any other breading batter of your choice, flour/egg wash etc if you like that, fry and enjoy just like little chicken nuggets   3) cube breast meat, season with salt, pepper, garlic, quickly fry in pan serve over rice, can also look up  South Dakota version of chislic similar to this   4) cream of something soup, crock pot with what ever you want lol   5) pheasant and dumpling soup   6) this one is a little bit of work but good stuff: https://fromfieldtoplate.com/2016/08/16/sesame-pheasant-garden-veggie-stir-fry/   I tend to save all my legs and prepare them together. For example this last weekend I shot 2 birds on Sat and 3 on Sunday for a total of 10 legs. Put them all in a crock pot, with beefbroth and a can or 2 of dr pepper to make sure they are call covered. cook on low until tender. pull all tendons etc out and shred any meat you can salvage. add  barbeque sauce and serve on a bun and toppings of your choice. will be very similar to pulled pork.   I hate wasting legs, and I hate even more seeing others not utilize them and just breast out birds and leave the legs to rot     My team of GSP's have been putting the hurt on birds this year here in SD. pleasantly surprised with numbers after the brutal winter we had. probably had my best year of sharptail hunting that I can ever recall in my lifetime also.

      You can prepare/cook them pretty much any way you make chicken.  The taste and texture is very similar.  I'm sure I could do what Moose posted above with his grouse and the finished product would be almost identical.   My favorite recipe is a slow cook in a cast iron pot.  That takes some time because it requires cooking at low temperature for at least 90 minutes.  The finished product is very good.   Being that its so warm out, I might try grilling some here too.   I also give a few away each season.  My possession limit is triple the daily bag limit so its something I have to be mindful of before I go hunting again.

      Walked out about half a mile on Tuesday with max safety (life jacket, ice picks, long rope to house, and chisel).  Ice was very solid and I measured 7½" today (Thursday).  The first 1/8 mile was nice dark ice that was large chunks frozen together, but quite smooth.  Then there was about 40 feet of very jagged white ice.  Had to lift the portable over the points of ice otherwise it would hang up on them.  Then the next mile of ice was rough white ice as shown in the picture with the ice scoop.  At the small island before Birch Island the ice appears to be dark (and probably smoother).  Several snowmobiles and ATVs were running out as far as Birch Island but it was easy walking for me.   Fishing got better each day.  Rainbow and chubs were about equal.  Couldn't catch a fish on pike suckers.  Best fish was the 27" (8#-3oz) hog shown in the picture.  Had a hard time getting her head into the hole.  Picture quality is bad because I wanted to release her quickly to avoid further stress.  Good luck out there and be careful on the ice.

      Measured 6" good clear ice today about 50 yards off the north side of Moccasin point. Walked out for a little ice fishing. Remember ice conditions vary around the lake, depending on sun exposure and current in channels/narrows. Be cautious, safe and verify your local ice conditions.  Directly off the Moccasin point boat landing, in the channel ice conditions looked poor. Picture is from Northside of Moccasin point I the early morning  when ice looks the best

      Finished the 23 waterfowl season over Thanksgiving. Got to hunt two days of the long weekend. Saw a modest number of ducks, and harvested mallards, bluebills, and ringnecks as the water began freezing over during the weekend. One of our tougher seasons with different migration patterns probably due to unusual weather patterns with constant fluctuating between well above average temps for a period and then almost instantly well below temps before going well above again, and so forth. Still will cherish the memories with family and friends and relive the sights and sounds of out on the water during fall. Will be posting ice fishing reports in the fishing report clubs as soon as the ice is safe. Happy Holidays everyone.

      Thanks for sharing this exciting career opportunity with Orvis in the Minneapolis area. It's great to see companies looking for passionate individuals to join their team, especially in the world of fly fishing.
