2002 Summer league meeting

Recommended Posts

GullGuide

Hey all,
I'm tentatively planning a meeting for the 2002 summer league for Friday November 30th at 7pm at my place here in Sauk Rapids.
I would like to discuss league format, dates, decide what lakes we will be fishing, hold an election for league officials, scoring systems, and just discuss what worked and did not work last year. Everyone who took part in the league last year is welcome as is anyone who might want to be involved next year. Please post your thoughts and weather or not you could make this meeting.
Thanks,
Tom

Yes, I plan on doing the wing thing again. How about having everyone who attends bring a food item such as a bag of chips or something? Wouldn't be mandatory, but you could if you want.

Hi Gullguide,
I don't know if I can make the meeting,
but I am interested in doing some of the tournaments next summer. I am not
fishing the MWC any more and I now have
the time to get involved. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help,
I suddenly have lots of free time on my hands. smile.gif

Hey Guideman,
One thing that was brought up was holding maybe a 2 day tourney up on the big V. Any thoughts on this one?

Gullguide, Let me know what you would like me to bring. Being that I work in a restaurant just about anything is doable.

Gullguide,
That would be cool, it never hurts to have the home field advantage. smile.gif
There are several campgrounds that are
available or you guys could camp at my place.
How soon will you have a schedule for the events? I don't want to book that date with a client.......Please keep me informed, I'll help anyway I can. smile.gif

I'd like to have all decisions made the night of the meeting. The sooner people could plan, the better. How difficult would it be for you to fish other events Guideman? The way it sounded during conversations last year, most of the lakes will be north of Brainerd with the Alex area potentially having one event. This is going to be a once a month deal for the league with 1, possibly 2 larger events planned.

I'd love to see you guys throw one up on L.O.W - june out of warroad, the fishing should be hot....maybe ice-out pike fishing the end of april, first part of may. thought I'd throw it out there so you guys don't forget us northerners!

Gullguide,
I should be able to let you know more after the schedule is out. I have taken
a few reservations for next season...so it will depend what I have on my schedule. I would like to fish them all
if I can, I like the idea of having a few more up north. smile.gif

I would love to be there, but we have other plans on 11/30, so I can't make it. Here is my 2 cents worth:
1) A great part of the fun is making friends and learning from others. So keep or add things to support that, such as the mid-day break. How about an evening fish fry once or twice?
2) Longer trips that encourage a campover are good for #1 because we share stories around the campfires.
3) I love fishing the big northern lakes. Vermillion would be fun; I like Kabetogama also.
4) if you consider Lake of the Woods, maybe schedule when the fishing is good in the river in case the wind shuts us out of the big bay?
5) We could extend the season on the front end on the Mississippi River(pool 3 or 4) in late April or early May.
6) How about a full moon trip to Mille Lacs on 9/20 (3:00pm to midnight?). Maybe just a group event and not bother with a tournament because of the slots.
7) I can't make the weekend either side of July 4.

Hi Rick,
Late july and all of august is the peak of the guiding season for most of us.

June has some of the best fishing for a multi spieces event......If we get the date early enough, it shouldn't be a problem. smile.gif

The weather can be very unpredictable
in june, but most of the fly hatches are in july. I would vote for june or late in august.

We also have some tournament action in the month of august so it can be tough to find lodging.

How about eliminating some of the larger more famous lakes and adding some smaller or lesser known lakes that most people haven't fished on ? Could add a bit of challenge!!

Good idea Paul!
Toad and I had the same thoughts, but for the league events only smile.gif

Hmmm Small waters, how about MN River,say around Chaska?OOH a night tourney for big cats!Who's afraid of a little mud?!
Actually I like the idea of fishing both smaller lakes and some of the bigger northern lakes.Although I think for the big northern lakes I would prefer making a weekend out of it.

Guideman, can you send a list of preferred weekends to have one on the Big V to GullGuide just prior to our meeting so we can be sure to pick the right date for it?

We really want it to work out well for you Cliff, and Dave if possible.

GullGuide, maybe you can work out a Date with Guideman, Cliff, and Dave before the meeting?

Just a thought. I'd hate to leave it up to chance at the meeting.

Guys,
I like that idea, small lakes are much
easier to learn in a short time and it
would really level the playing field.

Or we could have all the events on the Big "V"...whatdaya think? smile.gif

Hi,
I didn't get a chance to fish any of the tournaments last summer because of work, family. How about a multi-species on Detroit Lake? There are a lot of anglers in that area and it might really help to introduce many new people to this cool bunch of board members. Did what I said make any sense? ;-)

I might be able to make it to the meeting. I will have to see how hard the water is by that time, first smile.gif Either way, I will try to make it to all the events, especially if they are once per month. I have a hard time heading south to lakes like Minnetonka and Horseshoe (or whatever that lake was).

Tully,
I agree with the Detroit Lake(s) idea, but Detroit Lake is so darn packed with boaters and idiots who drive mach one through your honey hole. Had it happen one too many times, and I won't fish there on a warm, sunny weekend day.

Now another suggestion for a smaller river!I would be up for a Red river outing!
Would any else be intersted in fishing some smaller rivers?

Great ideas guys, we will have to discuss this at the meeting. Just have to make sure all lakes and and especially rivers, handle the larger boats that some have in the league. I love the idea of the Red, but there are only so many holes to fish without some teams having to run a ways to find one. Just a thought though, maybe this isn't the case on the Red.
Here's the plan-
I'll make a batch of hot-wings and BBQ wings. Think of something to bring, even if it is only a bag of chips and post it so someone else does not bring the same thing. Any more ideas?

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!
    • roony
      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal. 
    • AlwaysFishing23
      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!
    • BartmanMN
      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.
    • tacklejunkie
      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?
    • gimruis
      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.
    • gimruis
      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
    • Mike89
      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..
    • Rick
      Good fishing in the Blue Earth river too. Also, a short drive to Rapidan can be productive.
    • Wanderer
      Welcome to the site @eg_gophers2124 I have never even seen the lake but these screen shots might help. Navionics Judging by the Lake Finder report, it’s a super clear lake; 17-20 foot clarity but with plenty of weeds. A couple shots of the weed report. Starting from scratch, I would head to the southwest area.  The southern basin has better looking structure too. You might do well simply working edges of the emergent weeds with spinnerbaits in low light and weedless frogs or spoons up in the weeds when it gets to be mid day.  Crawler under a slip bobber on the weed edges could do well also. It’s purely guessing on my part.  Hopefully someone with experience on the lake will chime in. Good luck!
