fishing leagues posting.


Recommended Posts

This is a good idea...albeit, way too late. Most of the leagues have selected their schedules, which are usually picked by members to accommdate their lives...

This should have been addressed 2 months ago, with leagues working together in scheduling their events. At this point, people will not alter their schedules that have been set around summer itineraries, vacations, etc...

...but that's just my take, and that's also why I dropped out of the league I was in...

VERY interesting topic.

Last year, my fishing partner and I tried to get a meeting together with about 10 league representatives in the Sherburne/Wright county area to address the exact issues of what can/may happen to conflicts on lakes. I had a person from the MN DNR lined up and attended our meeting.
We had great interest in the meeting(before hand), but when meeting night came, we had 2 leagues show up. (Our league and one other league)
Not much happened.

It's just a matter of time before more restrictions take place on our weeknight fun get-togethers. Don't kid yourself.

I set up a post in the leagues/tournaments forum for a place to list your league schedules. please use this if you are on a league. we have run into another league the last 2 weeks. most of the lakes we fish can handle this many boats but not all. if we work together we can avoid stack-up. there are enough lakes in this area we should be able to work together. too many boats on a lake give league fishing a bad name. I have read a few post of people complaning about leagues and tournaments, and I am sure the DNR gets their share of calls. the league we ran into on tuesday said that they ran into a 20 boat league the week before on maple that means there were 32 boats on that lake. I know people on the lake noticed. not to mention it takes alot longer to dock all the boats. well sorry about the long wind but it would be nice if we could work together.

if you checked my post you would have seen that i posted it back in april when most leagues were forming, not to pick on you. we probably would shift our schedule if we thought it would be a problem. i am really pointing it out so that maybe next year leagues could start working together thats all.

blackbas...

I did go to the Tourney Forums...and noticed you did bring that topic up several months ago. Kudos to you...it was a good idea.

However, I noticed your tone seems to suggest that you would like people to "move out of your way", since you have posted it first...

"I set up a post in the leagues/tournaments forum for a place to list your league schedules. please use this...""we have run into another league..."

...and I'm sure you didn't mean for it to come off like that... wink.gif

all i am really saying is maybe next year if league post their schedules as soon as they have them other leagues could avoid those lakes on those nights and for the rest of this year if we see that we are going to stack up we may change lakes for a night. thats all it just would be nice if we could all work together. sorry if I came across wrong, we are all after the same thing, a nice peacefull night on the water.

According to the DNR Tournament Regulations link, you're both wrong...
They say:

A permit will be required for any fishing contest that is limited to specifically named waters if one or more of the following apply:

* There are greater than 30 participants for open-water contests or 150 participants for ice-fishing contests;
* The entry fee is greater than $25 per person;
* The total prize value is greater than $25,000

I stand corrected.
15 (2 man teams) boats for a total of 30 participants.

That's what I was trying to get across.

Thanks for the additional clarification though.

Not sure if you know or not but if you have 12 or more boats on one lake at any given time for a designated event you must contact the DNR and obtain a permit. I am in a Metro league and we limit it to 10 boats for this very reason. We ran into a sheriff at one of the boat launches and he informed us of the law. Good luck in your league this year...

not well, we went to the spot where we caught our fish last year and didn't catch anything. we caught 2 fish 1 16 bass and 1 13 bass. i lost one and jeff lost one, but i started having problems with my foot control for my trolling motor, the cable keeps jumping off the pulleys. we couldn't fish much the last hour. Steve and Shane had 5 bass and won the night. we are now 2 points out of 1st.

      Has anyone fished the Rum River between Onamia and the Wayside landing around this time of year before? I'm looking to take a trip with the kayak over labor day, but wanted to make that stretch would be deep enough to float (I'm ok with occasionally dragging the kayak, but I don't want to take my girlfriend on a 9 mile hike in ankle deep water), and that there'd be a realistic chance to hook into some good smallies. I will be doing strictly catch and release, I just want to get out and have some topwater fun. I had heard from some that the stretch of river in question may be better in June, so I wasn't for sure.    If that stretch of river is no good, is there another that you'd recommend?   I appreciate any help.

      On the south end...  Walleye fishing has been good all summer and is still strong.  Lots of limits of walleyes along with some big fish being caught.  Lake levels continue to drop thankfully.  Boat ramps are open and charters / guides continue to be on fish. Drifting spinners still producing.  Hammered gold, pink, orange, glow white, glow red or a combo of some of these colors working well.  Usually a two or three hook harness with just a few inches of crawler off of the back hook.  Good success jigging for walleyes.  This technique usually slows down in August, but this year it is still working great.  Using a frozen emerald shiner is the go to. Big walleyes being found, as a rule, over deep mud.  Jigging, spinners and crankbaits are all catching the big fish.   Nice eaters still set up in 15-20' outside both gaps on the south end of the lake as well as numerous areas of Big Traverse Bay.   Lots of anglers running north if conditions allow.   On the Rainy River...   Some good walleye, sturgeon and smallmouth bass reports from the Rainy River.  Water levels continue to drop.   Shoreline breaks, current breaks, weed edges and holes holding a mixed bag. Sturgeon anglers are reporting good numbers of fish.  Putting in a couple of days normally results in some success.  Holes and flats or saddles just off of the current good areas to look at. Up at the NW Angle...  Lots of walleyes along with a mixed bag is the norm.  Some anglers fishing MN waters, others boating into Ontario waters from the Angle and fishing there.  Good reports across the board. Angle resorts are located in MN right on the border.  Checking in with Canada Customs and being vaccinated is not needed if boating from the U.S. to Canada and not touching land, docks, anchoring, mooring or exchanging goods or services.   Little Traverse Bay (large open water east of Little Oak Island) still holding good numbers of walleyes over deep mud. Typical summer spots are producing.  Sunken islands, neck down areas with moving water and points.  With 14,552 islands, lots of places to fish. Muskie anglers reporting fish have been active with good numbers being caught. Various ways to travel to the Angle. 1.  Drive through Canada to the Angle  (must be vaccinated, no covid test required) 2.  LOW Passenger Service (charter boat service across the lake avoiding customs)  3.  Lake Country Air (fly from various Midwest locations to LOW and NW Angle) 4.  Take your own boat.  (Safety first, this is a 40 mile ride over big water)

      I have been out four times this season since mid July.  I caught some smaller ones the first couple trips, but Saturday I finally got into some larger fish with my Father.  The bigger ones are tiger muskies in the mid 30 inch range.  I had another one on that made these look small.  We got a good look at it when it surfaced and spit the hook with a head shake.  Appeared to be 45+ inches, which is enormous for a hybrid.

      I saw a fair amount of wood ducks and teal in the Rum River a couple weeks ago when I was floating it for smallmouth bass.  More so than usual.   I hear ya on the ducks though.  There just isn't nearly as many as there used to be, which is why I stopped hunting them.  Hard to justify the time investment and scouting that is required when it only produces a few ducks per season.  I used to harvest about 35/season just 10 years ago too.

      Need to read bottom and mark fish while on plane   Marking fish while on plane? Is this even practical? At that speed, my guess is you'd go over it so fast a fish might show up as a dot on the screen. I've never thought that would be possible. Am I wrong?

      I’ve only seen teal one morning on the river.  Absolutely nothing in all the evenings I’ve been out.  Hard to get excited about hunting around home. 😒

      Public Administration in any sphere is a complicated process. In public service, there is a high level of responsibility. Every decision may affect large groups of people. There are many challenging points in Public Administration in public service. For example, public administration servants might face a lack of clarity or conflict regarding goals. Public Administration is difficult when there are numerous parties involved. Public Administration essay in public service should also be as objective as possible. There are voting sessions in various committees that help reach the objectiveness. However, if a suggestion gets 50% of votes among street-level bureaucrats, how should this be interpreted? Is a minor preponderance of votes enough to accept a proposal? The sphere implies a focus on societal needs. Sometimes the needs of the target population differ from the common societal ones. In such cases, public administration specialists need to find a balance between those interests. Bureaucrats at street level need to take into consideration many factors. In some cases, it might be challenging to figure out what to do. It is especially true if the decision regards a long-term perspective. Any public service organization has an established pattern for effective decision-making. Such models might involve many formalities. As a result, the process might be extremely time-consuming. https://proessays.net/essays/category/public-administration Related Resources: https://renkulab.io/gitlab/-/snippets/2871 https://www.ridesharetalks.com/?qa=356716/economics-essay-example https://gitlab.syntra-limburg.be/-/snippets/1240 https://forum.making-stories.com/d/296-government-essay-examples
