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!

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.

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.

    • Was at Long Point this past weekend. Lots of small fish, no slots from us......
    • Ill let dealer plug into computer and see what shows up. 
    • Pigger steak on the grill, taters and corn. Yea yea, I get docked etiquette points for no serving dishes.
    • I suppose there is no check engine light code plug in on those like a car? Sometimes you can read and clear a misfire code. Did you try switching plugs out on the trail?
    • Had scratchers down but probably didn't matter much. Wasn't overheating and temp on gauge stayed at 160. Another guy in club thought it might also be bad gas and a misfire settting off check engine. Ill see what they come up with when they plug into computer. As far as electronic reverse lots of problems with it on internet. Fuse wasn't blown and I also bought and changed the 2 relays that people have had problems with and still nothing. I think the Servo motor crapped out as those have had problems to. I just hope it doesn't take to long to fix as spring is around the corner  
    • Wow, sorry to hear all that.I call it the Northshore curse!  Did you have your scratchers down? Or do you think it's just a short somewhere?  😟
    • it takes some practice. I was skeptical at first also but friends did great on them so made the switch and I use them 95% of the time for gills and crappies now.  Still learning
    • Made it up to Silver Bay for a ride on Saturday. Got about 15-20 miles down trail and sled starts to miss and wants to die and check engine light comes on. Shut it off and look things over and everything looks OK and not overheating. Start back up and runs fine for about 10 miles and does same thing. Did this about 4 times till we got to Trestle Inn. Im thinking its bad gas so was going to go put some premium in it to see if that helps. Start machine and put in reverse and back up and hit button to take out of reverse and nothing happens. Reverse fail comes up on gauges not good. Only good thing was stranded in Trestle Inn parking lot instead of woods. Gave guy I was riding with my car keys to come back with my truck and trailer and went and drank beer for a couple hours. Finally get everything back to motel and get organized and come back out to get some stuff out of truck and step on back of trailer and it flips up. Someone must have helped themselves to my tilt trailer pin as it would have never fell out on its own. Had to run to town on Sunday and round up a pin for trailer and dropping off sled at dealer tomorrow. At least its still under warranty.  
    • Thanks Presidents for the day off!  😁   Went back over to the same trails by Orock and hit it pretty hard to burn off some of the carbon I built up pulling the grandkids and sleigh around the other day. The trails were groomed and not bad but the groomer seemed to have put some pretty deep grooves in the trails around the corners. Never really saw that before anywhere? 🤔 There were a few folks out but no where near last weekend. My top end rebuild seems to be breaking in pretty well and the compression has been going up the last few rides so hopefully I'm almost there. 🤗    
    • I picked up some impulse mayfly plastics and mud bug jigs. I have tried plastics in the past with mixed results. I expect good things from the impulse mayflys. It would be nice not to have to mess with live bait.
