Leading Edge Tournament Series 2004

Recommended Posts

Guest

FishingMinnesota’s official fishing league is about to begin!!
Leading Edge Tournament Series 2004 Statewide Division.

We are little under a month away from our first event on Cass Lake. There are still some openings left.

This year, in order to get more people involved and give more teams the opportunity to fish these great events, we have opened up team registration on a single event basis.

Yes, you can still register for the entire series, with the added benefit of competing for the end of the year payout, but for those teams out there who just want to find out what LETS is all about or teams that have scheduling conflicts, this decision was made with YOU in mind!

What is LETS? It is a multi-species, team format fishing league. In the Statewide division, it is set up as a two day contest. First day fishing the evening and the second day fishing the morning. Winners are determined by overall weight of fish caught. Lets represents all levels of fishing skill and knowledge. LETS participants have fished out of everything from 12ft Jon boats to 20ft Rangers.

What do you get out of LETS?

First off, we fish some of the states most diverse and productive waters, providing all teams with a good chance of competing.

Secondly, LETS members are more than willing to share information on techniques, location and presentation to better your success. Everyone who fishes LETS has come away learning something new about tourney style fishing. If you have ever thought about trying out your skill in a low pressure, fun event, LETS is for you.

Thirdly, LETS gives you a great opportunity to meet fellow FM’ers and make friendships that last. Many of us now fish year round together and stay in constant contact. The Saturday night meal which is provided and is paid for through league dues, is a great chance to sit back, relax, trade tips and just have general all around fun.

Lastly, LETS gives you a low pressure venue to hone your tourney skills. Some of LETS former members have gone on to fish the RCL, MWT, and other large tourney circuits. Many LETS members have also gone on to become moderators and prostaff for FishingMinnesota and equipment manufacturers.

Cost for LETS is $300 per team to fish all 4 events, or $75 a team for individual events. ($50 entry fee plus $25 league dues)

Hey guys, I just can't wait for Cass, not to mention the other three events this summer! Its going to be a great time again this year.

Also if anyone is interested, I was thinking about bringing up venison brats and dogs for a Friday night feed. I have enough that we could probably do this for all four events if people were interested. If you are let me know maybe a few guys could volunteer to bring some buns and condiments, maybe some bags of chips or some salads. Will we have access to a grill for Friday night gatherings at each location? Let me know your thoughts.

Sounds good Grabs. Everyone has access to a big grill for the 2 events at my place.

Also the porta-john is reserved already.

Who else can't wait for the first gathering?!?!?

Grabs, Ron is hosting everyone at his place and he and Steve are working out the details for the event.

If these guys see this maybe they can chime in on what they have in mind. I'm sure we'll chat about all the details at Cass too.

You guys are killing me... Not fishing LETS this year is going to be difficult to say the least! Maybe we will be able to make it to 1 or 2 events anyway...

Do you know where there place is? Or approximately how far it is from the lake, Shawn's parents have a place on Mary so we are trying to decide if we are going to camp with every one else at Ron's or sleep back at Shawn's parents, but we need to plan ahead for that.

Josh, we need to hook up soon! You guys should really consider fishing one or two of the individual events, especially the mystery event!

Sorry, just feel like launch locations for each event would be nice, we've had them in the past and it would be nice to have them again.

Thanks for your efforts!

    • Graphs are nice for fishing in a boat for sure.  They show you the nice big history picture of what has already gone by and gives you a good view of what the changing bottom depths look like as you float around.  Really though, when your fishing in a little hole over the same bottom for an hour or all day. What’s the point?  The important part of a graph for ice fishing is that ¼” or so of edge on the far right and what is happening on it real time.  Which then, is just like a Flasher only giving you real time info and why I went back to one from my graph.   Worley Worley!  😉  
    • Good luck on your hunt, let us know how you do!
    • I have another weekend in me to fish and fight the winds and weather and then the boat will be done for the year.  Guess it is that time of the season but would really love to get another couple outings in but such is life! 
    • who uses flashers now days haha; I'm a helix convert now too, i was hesitant at first as the Lowrance had a LCD screen a few years ago for ice fishing but the lag was unusable, but hbird figured it out. Mapping, flasher screen if wanted, and sonar all in one, its like a smartphone; everything in one.   also, I have not had any interference issues with others using the helix, especially with all of hte chirp setttings
    • Looks like a good time 
    • I love my Helix unit also, and GPS has been a game changer for me. No more fumbling with my phone in the cold with apps eating my battery and trying to keep it out of the elements.    I miss the simplicity of my Marcum VX-1 but after getting my Helix dialed in I have no complaints.
    • SD resident opener was a wet one. Saturday I didn't go out. Sunday morning woke up with 4.5" inches of snow at my place a few miles south of Sioux Falls. Never would I have imagined we would be able to hunt in snow this early! The other odd part is that none of the weather people even hinted at any accumulation or even predicted any chance of precip. It literally just came out of nowhere.   Yesterday I hunted the entire day from noon to sundown and was fortunate enough to still have some snow stick around in areas.. My only summary is swamp country. I wore the wrong boots, wrong pants etc. Should have just wore waders would have been able access things better. My biggest mistake was not going far enough west and not far enough north. But there is a ton of public land where I headed and I hadn't been able to scout that way yet this year. Everything that looked walkable was wet it didnt matter how high or low it was. If it looked good at knee level it very likely had ankle high standing water under it. Ditches were full of water, some roads were underwater it was just wet everywhere and I don't see any signs of any harvesting starting any time soon. The water just made things difficult to walk as some areas I am familiar with. I could walk one side and work it good, but then get land locked because of water and have no way of getting to the other sides and ended up back tracking and walking a lot of same areas twice  which usually isnt productive.   I only managed 1 bird all day. I missed 1 bird my first walk probably at 12:01pm right after getting out of the truck. Just was slow to get the gun up and was way behind it. Typically early season lull, I think I just stared at the bird before I even realized I should be trying to shoot it. I downed another bird early afternoon and I knew it wasn't hit hard. Made a good mark on it and then my dog got a good track and pinned it down. As I went to grab it with my hand the dog released and the bird took off like a bat out of hell and we never were able to recover it because of all of the water. As soon as I put my hand on it, it just exploded and was gone. Was just an odd scenario.   Saw a few other hens but otherwise a very very slow day. I had spotted a bunch of birds coming out of some CRP earlier in the day that headed for corn. I came back an hour before sundown and hunkered down hopefully to get some pokes at them during the golden hour and they never showed up. I know the birds are around but all the crops in makes it difficult to hunt during the day.   I dont know what to suggest for people coming for the big opener this weekend. Its going to be difficult with so many crops in. I would say anywhere north of HWY 14 should be a little drier in areas but they have still seen some moisture the last couple weeks. Up near Brown county they are basically in a drought and down in the south eastern part of the state we are breaking yearly precipitation records. Harvest is off to a slow start all over. I know this weekend is the big opener everyone gets fired up for but if it were me I would be coming back for late season hunts and skip the circus this weekend.   I wont be hitting it hard any time soon will probably just stick to some sundown hunts closer to home for now. I have some gopro footage I need to get edited from yesterday got alot of good stuff on video including the bird that got away.   Good luck to those heading out this weekend!
    • I'd like to see how the Helix handles interference.   Interference was the reason I went from my Interphase Video to a flasher. Currently using HBird Ice 45 and MarCum LX5.
    • I put all the boats put away,  subsequently the rain stopped.  I'll take that and finish pulling the dock in.
    • Posting.  Cuz I can’t sleep worth a dump.  Gonna be a MEA yahoo for most the rest of the week.  I’ve heard good reports from the friends that are already out there. They took the whole week so I’m driving myself out Tuesday night.     Just getting the the back of the truck filled with dekes got me too revved up.  Gonna be hard packing anything else besides waders, layout blind, guns and shells!  Who needs food and more than one change of clothes for 5 days anyway?!
