Southern MN LETS Deadlines

Recommended Posts

I've decided to put deadlines on the SM LETS sign-up, and league fees will be due at that time also. We need to do this so we can schedule the payouts for each event. The sign-up deadline for "All Events" is June 12th which is one week prior to the 1st event on Cedar lake June 19th. Individual events sign-up and fees would be due 1 week prior to the event fished, ie the lake Francis event sign-up would be on July 10th, Zumbro Aug 14, and Tetonka Sept 18th. Previously I had said that you could show up the day of the event and sign-up. This won't work because we want to have all payouts figured out a week in advance, to save confusion at the event.
Thanks Lucky

Hey Lucky,
For those of us that aren't familiar with the lakes down that way, can you fill us in on how the fishing is on these lakes. I've heard Cedar is a good bass lake. Tetonka claims the state record bass. I thought I remember hearing that Francis is a good walleye lake?? Zumbro?

Is it $75 per team per event?

How many teams do you have signed up now?

Sure Dan I'll give you what I know, and anyone else that wants to fill in the blanks jump right in. smile.gif First of all I've never fished Cedar so it will be a new experiance for me. I've heard it is a good bass and panfish lake, and will yield some northerns too. Francis is a great lake for crappies and I've done well there on walleyes on occasion. There are bass as well as sunnies too. This makes Francis a pretty well rounded lake in my opinion. Tetonka is my favorite lake to fish. It has great structure and it always seems to have something biting at one time or another. I'm big on walleyes and have always done well for them on Tetonka. Of course the state record bass came from there, so that says something for the bass fishing on this lake. It is also a great pike fishery, I usually manage at least a 1/2 doz big pike a year from Tetonka (10 lb range). It has a good population of white bass, crappie, and sunfish also. The word is that there are muskie in Tetonka too, but I've never run across one. Same goes for channel cats. Zumbro is another lake that I haven't fish, so I'm researching that now. I think the best info on that lake could be gotten from Crappie Tom on the Rochester SE forum, he is very informative and I enjoy reading his posts. I haven't heard of it being a good walleye lake, but I believe the other species more than make up for their abscence. From what I've read Zumbro holds a good population of crappies, and bass both smallies and largemouth. Pike is another option I believe along with channel cats. I believe there was some stocking of muskies in the lake too, but I'm not sure that they are fished much, don't know for sure. So there is the overview, however incomplete it may be.

The league dues come to $50.00 per team for each event. We now have 4 teams with two more showing some interest in fishing the league. smile.gif

    • corned beef is right up there but we are now getting into the season where the sales will start!!  love the ruebens too!!!  but it is one thing I never made from scratch, just store bought and cooked...  go for it bobber!!! 
    • Got drawn for the MN B season! Hope the weather cooperates.
    • Did you ever end up making corned beef Thunderlund? or anyone?The Mrs went up to cub yesterday so I had her pick up some c beef from the deli for Ruebens, holy moly they dont give that stuff away!!  I see most recipes call for brisket ( thinking maybe end up kind of stringy) but I do have several chuck roasts,  I'm thinking brining one and give it a whirl..If so how'd it turn out?
    • I use a lighter duty set on the front because they fit tighter and have better clearance. On the back I use  more aggressive v-bars. Sometimes one set isn’t enough and once I got stuck with both sets on. I’m pretty new to this too but for the most part they’ve worked  well for me. 
    • I've used these too. Do you add any meat or whole minnow? Hooked through the back or lip? 
    • Was up there a week ago. We stayed at the Walleye Retreat Lodge but did our own fishing rather than using their houses. First day we went out kind of N-NW of Morris Point into 27' of water. Didn't do too well. Just a couple saugers in the afternoon.    My nephew was up there with another bunch and went out using Adrian's Resort access and did quite well that same day. They gave us waypoints to their location so on day 2 we tried that. It was about 15 miles north in 33' of water. We did much better this day although most were still saugers in the 12" - 13" range. Got a few walleye in the 15" - 19" range and one 21" by your's truly.    Seemed our best success, especially for the walleyes, was dead sticking using a plain hook through the back of rainbows about a foot off the bottom. I talked to one of our neighboring fishermen and he had just landed a 27" walleye.
    • Like others have said, Impulse mayflies on a 3 or 4mm tungsten jig is my go-to for panfish. If you are targeting deeper crappies or big fish only give the Lindy frosted spoons a try, 1/16 works quite well tipped with a minnow head or waxies.
    • WOW!!!  I have read about the electronic reverse problems on DooTalk,,, I have the manual reverse and have not had any issues,,,, Bummer to hear about your engine issue ,,, Hope the dealer gets you up and back on the trails ,,, Who knows when we will get another winter like this again ,,, I do need to get some spare relays one of these days
