2002 Summer league meeting

Recommended Posts

Hey all,
I'm tentatively planning a meeting for the 2002 summer league for Friday November 30th at 7pm at my place here in Sauk Rapids.
I would like to discuss league format, dates, decide what lakes we will be fishing, hold an election for league officials, scoring systems, and just discuss what worked and did not work last year. Everyone who took part in the league last year is welcome as is anyone who might want to be involved next year. Please post your thoughts and weather or not you could make this meeting.
Thanks,
Tom

Yes, I plan on doing the wing thing again. How about having everyone who attends bring a food item such as a bag of chips or something? Wouldn't be mandatory, but you could if you want.

Hi Gullguide,
I don't know if I can make the meeting,
but I am interested in doing some of the tournaments next summer. I am not
fishing the MWC any more and I now have
the time to get involved. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help,
I suddenly have lots of free time on my hands. smile.gif

Hey Guideman,
One thing that was brought up was holding maybe a 2 day tourney up on the big V. Any thoughts on this one?

Gullguide, Let me know what you would like me to bring. Being that I work in a restaurant just about anything is doable.

Gullguide,
That would be cool, it never hurts to have the home field advantage. smile.gif
There are several campgrounds that are
available or you guys could camp at my place.
How soon will you have a schedule for the events? I don't want to book that date with a client.......Please keep me informed, I'll help anyway I can. smile.gif

I'd like to have all decisions made the night of the meeting. The sooner people could plan, the better. How difficult would it be for you to fish other events Guideman? The way it sounded during conversations last year, most of the lakes will be north of Brainerd with the Alex area potentially having one event. This is going to be a once a month deal for the league with 1, possibly 2 larger events planned.

Gullguide,
I should be able to let you know more after the schedule is out. I have taken
a few reservations for next season...so it will depend what I have on my schedule. I would like to fish them all
if I can, I like the idea of having a few more up north. smile.gif

I would love to be there, but we have other plans on 11/30, so I can't make it. Here is my 2 cents worth:
1) A great part of the fun is making friends and learning from others. So keep or add things to support that, such as the mid-day break. How about an evening fish fry once or twice?
2) Longer trips that encourage a campover are good for #1 because we share stories around the campfires.
3) I love fishing the big northern lakes. Vermillion would be fun; I like Kabetogama also.
4) if you consider Lake of the Woods, maybe schedule when the fishing is good in the river in case the wind shuts us out of the big bay?
5) We could extend the season on the front end on the Mississippi River(pool 3 or 4) in late April or early May.
6) How about a full moon trip to Mille Lacs on 9/20 (3:00pm to midnight?). Maybe just a group event and not bother with a tournament because of the slots.
7) I can't make the weekend either side of July 4.

Hi Rick,
Late july and all of august is the peak of the guiding season for most of us.

June has some of the best fishing for a multi spieces event......If we get the date early enough, it shouldn't be a problem. smile.gif

The weather can be very unpredictable
in june, but most of the fly hatches are in july. I would vote for june or late in august.

We also have some tournament action in the month of august so it can be tough to find lodging.

How about eliminating some of the larger more famous lakes and adding some smaller or lesser known lakes that most people haven't fished on ? Could add a bit of challenge!!

Toad and I had the same thoughts, but for the league events only smile.gif

Hmmm Small waters, how about MN River,say around Chaska?OOH a night tourney for big cats!Who's afraid of a little mud?!
Actually I like the idea of fishing both smaller lakes and some of the bigger northern lakes.Although I think for the big northern lakes I would prefer making a weekend out of it.

Guideman, can you send a list of preferred weekends to have one on the Big V to GullGuide just prior to our meeting so we can be sure to pick the right date for it?

We really want it to work out well for you Cliff, and Dave if possible.

GullGuide, maybe you can work out a Date with Guideman, Cliff, and Dave before the meeting?

Just a thought. I'd hate to leave it up to chance at the meeting.

Guys,
I like that idea, small lakes are much
easier to learn in a short time and it
would really level the playing field.

Or we could have all the events on the Big "V"...whatdaya think? smile.gif

Hi,
I didn't get a chance to fish any of the tournaments last summer because of work, family. How about a multi-species on Detroit Lake? There are a lot of anglers in that area and it might really help to introduce many new people to this cool bunch of board members. Did what I said make any sense? ;-)

I might be able to make it to the meeting. I will have to see how hard the water is by that time, first smile.gif Either way, I will try to make it to all the events, especially if they are once per month. I have a hard time heading south to lakes like Minnetonka and Horseshoe (or whatever that lake was).

Tully,
I agree with the Detroit Lake(s) idea, but Detroit Lake is so darn packed with boaters and idiots who drive mach one through your honey hole. Had it happen one too many times, and I won't fish there on a warm, sunny weekend day.

Now another suggestion for a smaller river!I would be up for a Red river outing!
Would any else be intersted in fishing some smaller rivers?

Great ideas guys, we will have to discuss this at the meeting. Just have to make sure all lakes and and especially rivers, handle the larger boats that some have in the league. I love the idea of the Red, but there are only so many holes to fish without some teams having to run a ways to find one. Just a thought though, maybe this isn't the case on the Red.
Here's the plan-
I'll make a batch of hot-wings and BBQ wings. Think of something to bring, even if it is only a bag of chips and post it so someone else does not bring the same thing. Any more ideas?

    • Milwaukee Fishing Eezy Peezy! By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt Lake Michigan Salmon Fishing Report 6/24/2019 Hello all, thank you for reading my reports. Joe, Laura and Jonathan Wolf from Mansfield Texas had fair weather and a multi species catch on a beautiful day on Lake Michigan. I enjoyed the opportunity to fish with them. Join us in Milwaukee! To get my fish reports and how to videos first go to http://www.jimhirt.com By subscribing you will keep ahead of the other anglers. When I post you will get it fast! Action is steady and all species are active. The water is still 50 degrees on top. This has made for easy presentation to fish. As long as this continues anglers will have success don’t miss out. Good weather and lake conditions will fill the cooler in the future. The water is warming up near shore and that area is slow. There are pods of forage from 70 feet and out to 200. The recent changes has brought many Chinooks and Coho in. Most of the fish came from the top to the bottom. Our best presentations are Church Walleye planer boards with 150 and 225 copper running 40 to 65 down and downriggers 80 to 120 feet down. Flasher and Bull Frog flies or 100 foot leads on Reaper magnum spoons on downriggers have been the best producers. Reaper magnum spoons are sold at http://www.badgertackle.com with free shipping. Our best boat speed was 2.0 mph. Wire Divers are producing very well set to #2 with 130 feet of line out. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!!

    • Well, after two and a half hours on the phone with Netgear and Comcast I have no resolution.  Comcast is coming out to the house on Wednesday to see what the problem is.  I am on the 150 mbs plan and I still only get around 30 on a speed test.  Even when I wire directly to the router the performance is the same.  I may upgrade to the Roku Ultra as well.
    • The speeds that you show are enough for streaming, the roku stick is not their best streaming device. I use Roku 3 and used to have your bandwidth with no problem.

    • nice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • The greenhouse experiment this year has paid off for me. I got to plant about a month earlier than I usually do.
    • They sound like they got cold, I planted too soon years back and had the same thing. I bought smaller new plants that out performed the stunted ones. It took about a month before they started growing again. The heat at the end of this week should help them out.
    • Not really. My cukes are going well. Got 3 tomato plants that look like they don't wanna do anything though!!??
