Lake Tetonka Event

Recommended Posts

Well we closed out Southern Minnesota Leading Edge Tournament Series with some of the most impressive weights turned in for any of the events. I'll try to get some pics posted and I sent the standings to Dan Wood and asked him to put them up on www.FishingSavvy.com so you can find them there. This has been a lot of fun and a learning experiance as well. Bottom line I think everyone had fun, and for me that's what it's all about. Thanks everyone that participated and all of our sponsors.

Good Luck & Good Fishing. Lucky

Thanks for doing such a great job Lucky!! I know you guys had a lot of fun, hopefully we can build on what you did this season.

I also know what has been going on concerning sponsors, etc. Not what LETS is all about at all, also hopefully you guys will decide to remain with LETS and not go the other direction. If you need anything, just let us know, we want you and the Southern division to succeed and grow.

Thanks to all who participated and see ya next year!!

I'm just sitting here waiting to see the pics and stuff.

Man, this is as much fun as icefishing. I think I'll fire up Free Cell.

Yeap. Know it's just like Ice fishing.

But seriously.

I had a good time at Tetonka. I would like to say thank you to everyone involved with L.E.T.S. and all the people at Best Point for making us feel at home.

It's good to know that there are good people like you out on the water.

Thank you again!

EEEWWWWW
What were you fishing in? Pea soup?!?!
Man, that water looked green.

Looks like a good turn out. What were the results?

It was Pea soup. The splashes on my boat looked like paint and took hours to clean. We found most of our fish finding areas that was not covered by the green. Had alot of fun. Found some Bass using JR's spinnerbaits and Buzzbaits. Also had a couple walleye's and a jumbo perch hit the spinnerbaits so we dropped anchor, switched to a Rattle jig and minnow or Ring-n grubs and very quickly got a limit of very respectable Jumbo perch. That was the last thing I expected.

Thanks to the Southern LETS for having us. I hope you will continue on next season.

Great job running things Lucky, the event was a lot of fun. Thanks to Dave Hoggard and whoever else helped out with lunch, that was very nice. Congrats to Matt/Brian for finding the perch and getting a pattern down to limit! We got a couple, but didn't get on the pattern.

Boy was that water green - that stuff was thick too, it wasn't just on the surface.. For pure numbers of 1.5-2 lb. bass, that lake is very tough to beat. There just aren't many small fish, even pitching small plastics we never did get one under 13-14". During prefishing we had a 20" and another that was much larger, so the big ones are there too... The walleye fishing was quite good too for numbers, although the fish we got weren't big - mostly in the 10-13" category. That lake is just plum full of fish it seems - we caught white bass, perch, walleye, pike, LM bass, and crappie during the event.

Lucky sent me the results, I just have had no time... I'll post the results from the Tetonka event and the overall that he sent over now and update on the HSOforum when I get some time.. If anyone has photo's for the HSOforum, please email them to me.

I had a lot of fun at Tetonka, its an awesome fishery! That was a nice pike caught by Red_Ball and it was nice to see a lot of mixed bags brought in. Gotta love the green water, add a little ham and carrots and you could of had pea soup smile.gif The food was great and the weather was no different. Congrats to Team Lucky on finishing in first for the final standings!

Good Fishin,

The to pike I caught, one 11.5lb and 4.2 ?lb were caught using an 18.5 foot fiberglass rod and spoons. It took 10mns to land the big one.
In the old days of cain poles and no reels, you know I would have had to throw the pole in and chase it around.
Just thought I'd add that tid-bit.
It's a very effective method to get over weeds and then drop down into deep water.
Just think of the sweep you have, up and down 18.5 feet. Front to back 37 feet. Add to that the slow tip and there is noway the fish will get a slack line. But you must remember to keep the rod tip up when landing a fish!!! You do not want to end up with the fish at the end of an 18.5ft pole. My net may be long but not that long.

Thanks again!

Red Ball

I did something similar to what you did on Tetonka back in June on Lk Zumbro. I had a 16' crappie rod baited w/ a bit of crawler, and was trying to work some suspended gills. My neighbor was with me, and had gotten a couple. I felt a hit, set the hook, and the rod didn't move - at least for a while. When it finally did, the rod was U shaped and my 6# test line was crying for relief. Ended up w/ a 24-25" NP at 3.5-4#. That was a blast! I can only imagine what the fight you had was like ...

FYI - I have the pics I took for you back. Send me your snail mail particulars to:

sportsman00 AT yahoo dot com

and I will get you the prints.

    • We saw some good bucks this weekend but couldn't quite seal the deal on any of them...my son smoked his second one with the ML this afternoon after talking me in to going out when we should have been packing to leave for home...(: found a big deadhead this morning too...deer were super spooky but saw plenty...time to pack all the hunting gear away and focus on ice!! 
    • I know, you hear about them everyday in the News burning and terrorizing the good atheist folks of Belle Plaine MN.
    • Are the houses built on an order basis only?   How long did your build take from order to delivery?
    • The one I installed in my previous house was the same way. Like Tom said, be sure to watch the humidity levels. When they get too high you can start to get mold growth. I always watched the windows. When they'd start to get a lot of condensation on them I'd turn it down.   Be sure to check the filter at least once a year. I lived in town and still had to replace the filter every year because of buildup on the filter. When it would get clogged the water would pretty much run straight down to the drain in the bottom. 
    • Looks different to me, or probably just the light and shade difference.
    • I still planned to shoot my ML some, even not going hunting.  Pretty much out of primers and getting low on white hots so I swung into the Baxter FF on my way to Winnie for the weekend. They were completely out of primers and had just gotten restocked that day with propellants.  The counter guy said they went through a ton of ML supplies this year, owing the surge to scopes being allowed.  I bought some Buckhorn to try out and will have to get primers later. Anyone with a last day story to tell?
    • i think those jackknife couches are 72 inches but not positive, will check on that.  The back dinette bed would be almost 8 feet wide. Here are some more pics of the furnace, batteries, and hydraulic system under the couch.  Also the Biffy and closet in the front, the stereo system with Bluetooth, some USB charging ports next to it, cabinet for the satellite receiver with all connections tucked inside.  Pic of the outside 30 amp generator plug in and propane tanks.  Has lights over the tanks and entry door.  You can connect whatever you want to the tv, so yes a water camera would work on that.  Hoping to get on the ice next weekend!!  Good luck to all...
    • Meh, I can protect myself just fine with or without a $1000 rifle. My $100 Hi-Point .45 will make you just as dead as that AR. It's more than likely one of those crazy arse Christians that I need to protect myself from.
    • Yea, well down in Belle Plaine you got all those gun toting Christians to protect your ars!
