These guys are right.LETS is a lot of fun.We are fishing some of the best waters in the state and the fishing is good.Its not just about the fishing either.Its about getting out and meeting other folks who enjoy the same sport you do.LETS is a league format and the competition freindly.A lot of techniques and spots are shared...of course after the competition! smile.gif
Lots of folks who have fished LETS over the past few years have shown great improvement in thier fishing abilities,including and especialy me! smile.gif
Its fun,educational and many lasting freindships are made.
Join us for the next one.
Statewide is open to individual events so pick one or the remaining three and get ready to have a blast.

I totally agree! The LETS was way more than a compitition. The 2 day format was great as you get time to spend with other FM'ers bs'ing around the campfire. It was good to get to know some of the faces to the names. I wish the Metro and state LETS were on different schedules I would definately enter more of the state events

Everyone needs to experience at least one LETS event to appreciate the great times we have.

This is my 3rd year in this league and my partner is from Nebraska and had driven up for every event (except one the first year)

If he can make the drive - everyone else can. Trust me - you won't regret it.

Hope to see you at an event soon!!

You don't want to miss out on all the fun again! There are still three more Statewide LETS league events planned for this year and after all the fun we had on Cass you owe it to yourself to come and fish with us for a weekend.

Maybe we will be in your neck of the woods soon, or if not we can't be too far away. Heck I probably drive the furtherest to each event from Belle Plaine, MN and I know its worth every mile!

We will be fishing in the Alexandira area on Le Homme Dieu next on June 26th & 27th and camping at league member Ron's house, so lodging is next to free!

After that we will be back up in the Bemidji area again at the end of July for a Mystery Event. We will be camping at league member Clueless's house again, bound to be a great time and there is a lot of excitement about this event, sounds like a great turn-out is possible!

After that we will be heading to Pokegama at the end of August and there are two different league members with camping available in the area.

For more information be sure to check out www.fishingsavvy.com or contact Chuck Nordahl for more infomation or to sign up for an event.

Hope to see some of you on the water!

This is indeed a lot of fun. Those of you who want to see what it's all about can join in on any individual event for $75 (each event) a team this year.

Our next lakes are:
Le Homme Dieu (Alexandria) June 26-27
Bemidji Mystery lakes- July 24-25
Pokegama (Grand Rapids) August 28-29

We are camping at league member's homes near the lakes for every event!

You can visit our website (above in Grabs post) and also check out the FM gatherings and events forum for more info.

      On the south end... Ice roads and ice trails are extending out on Lake of the Woods looking to connect with schools of walleyes and saugers.  Some ice roads are out as far as 24 miles.   The subzero cold snap is good for extending ice into March, but it was tough on the bite.  Once the weather started warming up, so did the bite.   Most anglers report picking through numbers of small fish to catch eaters, slot fish and some true trophy fish over 28 inches. Depths vary depending upon outfitter based on where they are fishing, but as a rule, 32-36 feet has been the norm.  The morning / evening bite for walleyes in shallow water,16 - 19 feet, has been active for some. Jigging a lipless crankbait with vibration and rattles has been working well to catch some fish and also draws other fish into the area you are fishing.  Some fish in more of a neutral mood will slide over and take interest in your deadstick, a live minnow just off of the bottom. As a rule, glow and bright colors during cloudy days, the golds and silvers during sunny days.   A mixed bag for many being reported, including walleyes, saugers, jumbo perch, eelpout (burbot), pike, tullibees and even a few sturgeon and crappies.   On the Rainy River...   The golden hour (beginning and end of the day) continues to be the best on the river for those fishing for walleyes and saugers.  Some good reports this week. Some sturgeon have been iced at night by those hunting dinosaurs.   Ice conditions can vary on the river as there is current, work through a resort or outfitter for safety.   Up at the NW Angle... Resorts up at the Angle are hard at work staying on the walleyes.  As a rule, 24 - 30 feet of water is the norm.   Similar to the south shore, using a noisy, more aggressive lure has been effective, as has a jigging spoon tipped with a piece of minnow.  Work the jigging line in one hole with a deadstick and a plain hook a foot off of the bottom in your second hole.   Many eater walleyes caught this week with a variety of other fish in the mix.  Some anglers fishing the Ontario side for crappies are finding some nice slabs. Driving through Canada to the Angle no longer requires vaccinations or the use of the ArriveCan App. For those looking to access the Angle while avoiding customs, snowmobiling across the lake on the marked trails or utilizing the Lake of the Woods Passenger (bombardier) Service are best options.  Fish houses are out through March 31st, walleye and sauger season through April 14, pike season never closes.

      Visitors to Minneopa State Park may soon notice fewer trees near the waterfall area of the park. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will remove 20 trees from the area, including 17 ash trees, beginning Feb. 6.Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I can confirm that I have 3-4 bars the entire drive from Cook to The Landing. When I winter park at a cabin near CigarGuy, I get two bars way up on the hill but still through the trees. There is good reception out on the lake but I haven't exactly been riding around and pulling out my phone to check my cell reception.   Depending on where you are, you may have 4 bars or none. I have none still, but that's because I'm on the north side of a hill with tall trees between my cabin and the tower.

      Something else to just keep in mind here now too is that the deadline to remove permanent overnight unattended shacks is in exactly one month in the southern 2/3 of the state - March 6.  Plan ahead and don't let your castle get stuck out there beyond the deadline.  The DNR can and will confiscate it on site because I know people who have experienced this.

      I heard Green lake by Princeton has plowed roads and truck and castles out there. I will swing by to check it out. Please check the ice conditions for yourself. There is 4-6 inches if slush ice so take that off your totals as that is not very strong.
