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!

      Wow, I am certainly getting beat up over on this side of the fence today.  On month old posts and mostly by the mods oddly. ☹️

      Great story and nice fish! I too just put the boat away did a little river fishing but just to cold on the hands even with gloves. Ice season here we come!

      It is definitely getting down to the wire. I want to try and get out one more time if possible! I love ice fishing, but the fall bite has been hot.

      Be careful on public land traps tend to disappear. Don’t set the traps in the open and make another path to check your traps. With duck season going on use traps that will not hold dogs. I like setting banks with mink attractor or 220’s set in rat runs.

      I am looking to start a line this year since I travel 50 miles o e way for work. Looking for any advice and tips. I have some state land I would like to set on. Mostly mink and rats I believe are my targets. Thanks in advance

      Good pics have been hard to come by.  But...   Yes, these are water pics mainly but we’ve hunted fields too. The field hunting has been tough for us with the size of crew we have and the age mix.  Good times; good people.   Besides, a guy that likes divers needs a little water tossed in.  I saw my bucket list can but wouldn’t water swat him to claim him.  Didn’t get a chance at him on the wing.
