Tetonka/Sakatah Lakes to kick off tourney schedule

Lakes Tetonka and Sakatah will be site of the first of seven FishingMinnesota.com multi-species tournaments. The tourney will run from 7am to 9pm and will begin and end at the Antl Bay public access on June 2nd.
This tourney circuit will be an “Average Joe” type event, designed more for fun than the typical high-pressure, high-stakes tournaments that most people are familiar with. All skill levels will be represented, from the weekend angler to the guide. The tournament schedule will be set up in a team format of which participants will organize their own teams of two anglers throughout the series. Entry fees for each event will be $20 per team per event.
The circuit is designed to promote all-round fishing skill, thus the multi-species format and the variety of lakes that are on the tournament trail. Relying on one species to win these events might not get the job done; in fact, it is quite possible for a team to out fish the rest of the field by getting into large bluegills and crappies. The tournament is also a catch and release event. Teams may bring their catch in to be measured or they may find another team to verify their catch on the water.
The first stop on the circuit will feature the Cannon River Chain of lakes, mainly Tetonka and Sakatah. Both lakes hold good numbers and size of almost all species; in fact, Tetonka is the home of the current Minnesota state record largemouth bass.
The event will start at the Antl Bay public access at 6:30am with a mandatory rules meeting, with the take-off at 7. The contestants will fish until noon, when they must return to the starting point to have their fish measured and then released. The field then will take a 2-hour lunch break and then re-start at 2pm and fish until 9pm when the final scoring will take place.

Hope to see you there!!

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way

      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
