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!

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.

    • Well yesterday marks 10 years of craziness on this web page for me.  The time has gone by fast and I have met a lot of great folks along the way. I tried to do a slide show but I’m just not that good on that stuff so here is a long group of pictures of just some of the folks I have met and enjoyed fishing, GTG's and sledding with from this site. There were many more met at GTG’s and other fishing and sledding trips but I just didn’t get pictures of them all. 🙁 Some I met just for one outing and others I have done many trips with over the years. I joined to mainly “Leech” fishing and hunting ideas and spots off all you folks but instead I met and had great times with a lot of you.  Meeting and getting out in the Outdoors with folks is what this site should really be about along with sharing ideas.  Here’s to the next 10 years and all the adventures to come! 🙂 Leech~~ Matts.bmp J's fish.bmp
    • Foam may give me a couple extra days. I try to pull the shack ahead for fresh ice every two to three weeks.    Alot of times I have to move due to a heavy snow fall or warm streak. As the weight displaces water caused from the sagging ice sheet underneath me.    Nobody ever said living on A floating ice cube for two months straight was going to be easy or smart.    
    • what garmin do you have?  garmins lake maps here: https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/p/125128#devices
    • as some of you know by the various topics I"ve posted on different ice house questions, you've guessed this is my first year with one, and thanks for the responses so far.  another question, how long are you guys getting to run your ice castles on just a 12 volt group 27 power supply? the other night, i was getting some stuff ready, had the heater running, lights, and radio. about 15 min later, my 3year old co/propane alarm detector was throwing the low voltage alarm. I always have the battery plugged in with the built in battery maintainer ice castle provides. so i thought the charger may have been shot, tested the battery with a 12volt tester and everything was good. hooked up a different charger and that read full battery.  so I turned the heat off and the radio with the 15 sec beep going and it stopped after i had just the LED lights going. I called the manufacturer of the co/lp alarm and she said the low voltage goes off at around 10volts. the battery is 2 years old.  next thing i did was swapped batteries with a 1 year old battery, ran everything the same for  a good 40 minutes with no low voltage alarm going, so now I"m thinking my 2 year old battery cant handle the load high enough for the alarm to go off even though the lights are bright and no sign of being weak.  so long story short, how long should i be able to expect to have my lights, furnace, and radio on-granted my current battery is good to go? I'd figured it would be nice not having to run the genny at night if i can get away with just the furnace and no dam low voltage alarm waking me up at night
    • That's interesting. I would believe fish gorge themselves then go a day or two without eating.  They probably don't eat breakfast, lunch, dinner and second dinner like I do!
    • If you're confined to the sleeper then your results are going to be hit or miss and your odds of a really epic day aren't very good.  You'll probably catch some fish in the sleeper but I have yet to experience a truly great day by just staying in the sleeper.     Like others have said Cookies on Red Lake is a good option.  I've stayed with him before and he moved the house for us on Saturday afternoon when we only had a handful of fish by then.  The bite didn't pick up substantially with the move but its nice to know the guy is doing everything he can to give you a good trip.   I haven't stayed with Johnny P at Red Lake Remote but I've heard nothing but good things.    I think if you explained your experience to any of those guys they'll do their very best to give you an epic day but of course they can only do so much.   Do you usually come up with a bunch of other people or by yourself?  Maybe there is a way to get you out in a more mobile set up where you can go punch a bunch of holes and go find the fish.  From my experience there really isn't a trick to fishing Red Lake its all about moving around drilling lots of holes until you get on them.   Just find a spot without anyone else around and start drilling.  
    • i'm hoping santa brings me some!!!!!!!!!!!! but i've been told i havent been all the good the past year!!!!!!!!😩
    • Plan on an archery tag again this spring.  Only Minnesota, hope to someday hunt a Merriams somewhere.
    • not sure how accurate this is, but i read once that a fish will eat its weight once every 3 days????????????
    • I was at Cabelas over the weekend and they had a sign at the fish tanks with the feeding schedule. They only feed them 3 times a week, and there are some really nice sunnies and crappies in those tanks. Made me wonder how often fish actually eat. Also gave me a great excuse for all those times I go out and get skunked.
