Ultimate Panfish League - Open Water

Recommended Posts

Matt Johnson

I finally have the dates and lakes set for the open water Ultimate Panfish League events...

Saturday, May 20 - Turtle Lake

Saturday, June 3 - Rush Lake

Saturday, July 15 - Medicine Lake

Sunday, August 27 - Linwood Lake

Sunday, September 24 - Mystery Lake (voted on)

Saturday, October 14 - Mystery Lake (voted on)

What we did was reverse the ice fishing lakes and then we figured we would vote on the last two lakes. We also tried to put in a couple Sunday events incase some people can’t make the Saturday events, and visa versa.

Anyone who fished an ice fishing event or signs up for an open water event is allowed to put a lake name into the hat. Then we'll draw two names, which will make the 2 mystery lake spots. We will draw names at the Rush Lake event, which should give everyone plenty of time to register after the lake names are released.

Lakes must be at least 500 acres and must have an access that can accommodate 15-20 trailers minimum (unless there is more than one access). They also must be within about 60 miles from Minneapolis (as a center point for the Metro area). Next year we’re going to branch out and see what interest we have in other areas of the state, but we’re going to stick to somewhat Metro area for this year.

Online registration is available on the www.ultimatepanfish.com website. More information about the UPL can also be found on the website.

I will accept registration via e-mail/mail as well.

Thanks! The open water panfish season is here!

      Supposedly this fish was snagged.  I am reading online at various sources that it may be prohibited from state record certification.

      I fished with a guide on the Detroit River two weeks ago who had the new Panoptix unit ($4000 to get setup).  Incredible what you could see as it is a live image.  Have to say it can frustrate the hell out of you sometime,  you see the fish just looking at your bait and then swimming away.  Very cool tech!  You could actually see the fins on the fish in the image and truly judge the size somewhat.

      7-10 days the lake will be ice free. Which will be almost right on average ice out (April 30). Pike bay is open up to Duffy island working up the bay. Paddled from the Pike river up the bay to the ice line tonight.

      Fake chirp as marketing gimmick.    They need something to convince folks to buy their unit and dump their unit from two years ago.    I am reserving judgement on the new higher frequency units.  "mega" and equiv.   Side scan actually seems like it could be useful.  Lots of stuff is changing these days in electronics.       I think what would be cool is an underwater drone with several transducers that communicates back to the boat wirelessly with sonar and video.....    Fresh water doesn't block radio waves too much so probably could use radio communication at least for a limited distance.       Some sort of modulated acoustic waves would work too.       Can't you just see, sitting in the boat, driving the mini-sub around looking  for fish, with sonar to help?   I bet the open water musky guys would pay big bucks for one....😂
