Duluth Bass League - - - Year 2


Recommended Posts

This is an invitation to anyone in the Duluth and surronding area that wants to share their knowledge or has an intrest in learning some new technics for fishing bass.

Granny and I put this together last year to see if there was any intrest in the area and found it to be a good time for all who took part.

We will be starting our second year, this club is based on stricktly hitting the water and having a great time, there is no money involved, except those who want to enter in a big bass pot for each event. Our teams from last year included a great bunch of guys, I believe we had 5-6 boats on a regular basis and we fished the area lakes around Duluth, Cloquet and moose lake areas. We try and pair people up as boaters and non boaters, all fish are measured and released immediatly back to the water, so no livewells needed. All you need is to have an intrest in bass fishing at any level. The events are held on every third Sunday and there is a points system for bragging rights and medals handed out at our last outing for each place on down the line.

After each event, we meet up for a burger and some talk about what worked and so on. We will post info on our meeting that will be held at Gander Mtn. as we get a little closer to the warm weather, will be sometime in April but will post the exact date as we get closer.

Thanks for any intrest, so bring your tackle and your casting arm have some fun, we look forward to meeting some more good people.

Is this going to be part of the MMSTS this year? Sounds like everyone wants a bass league. I know the MMTS is doing one this year and I thought Granny( Magicstick ) and Mr.twister were in it this year?

No, this is the one we held last year and it is seperate from MMTS.

Granny had told me about the MMTS, we had thought about fishing it, but his schedule has changed.

No, I won't be able to do both bass leagues. The MMTS bass league is during the week and ours is only on weekends. Twister is looking at doing it as a nonboater. He fished out of the back of my boat and now he doesn't want to do any work while fishing grin.gif .

Anyone interested in the bass league can post here or send me an email at LSW2002 at AOL

Hi Granny, We were sure hoping to get you on the water this year in MMTS, but I guess we'll have to get the two groups together some weekend on a lake in between. We have 8-9 teams in already so it should be a great deal. Several others looking too. We really kept the money thing small to get trophies per night for the winning teams. On plaque for each member of the winning team each night and plaques for the top team end of year teams too. Should be a blast. We are only $10 a night or $40 for the year per team. So really an easy deal. It's all about the fishing and learning. I think we have a great group too and I know I have a lot to learn, so that's my goal. Love to see Northlander show us his bass fishing powers.. Glad to see you out here, didn't think with all the fishing you even slept. wink.gif

Doug,

What night are you holding your league event on, and do you keep the same teams all year long?

I'm kinda hoping to do both nights if I can find a partner. I have to admit, fishing in the back was a treat. Everyone should have a Granny in a boat!! Shogun, if your out there, are you coming back?

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?

      Drove through Annandale last Tuesday and was really bummed to still only see the old cement slab at Little Jim's. Hope they can get it built-back-better! 🙂

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick
