Joining a fishing club, team ??????

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,
I have a few questions i know its too late this year but Ill ask for next year and so on.
1. Do you need a boat to join a team or club?
2. When do the teams start to organize?
3. How does the sign up process go and where do we sign up.
4. When you have tournaments do you fish alone or team up?
5. Do you have both shore fishing and boat fishing categories and clubs?

I used my first year to get my feel of minnesota and next year i would like to get to know some of the faces that go to the names in this forum and learn more about contests, procedures, and tactics. I would also like info on where we can go see tournaments or if i can volunteer with any of the teams doing whatever. "Waterboy anyone" lol well take care and thanks for the responses in advance.

First, I recommend visiting the Tourney Forum. This is where all of the latest info regarding current and future tournament series and events takes place.

So far the Ice Leaders Series and LETS Series have been team oriented. You don't need a boat, but you will need someone who does.
I recommend posing the question in the Tourney forum. Good place to find a partner.

The Ice Leaders Events obviously don't require boats, just some ice fishing gear.
If you can find someone with snow/ice means of transportation, you have a good chance!

LETS league is a multi-species league.We fish throught out the state on lakes chosen ahead of time.You fish on a team with one partner,one of you would need a boat.I am not sure when sign up will start for next year but watch the Tourneys forum for more information.
Jim W pretty much covered the Ice Leaders events.
There is also the Catfish league.There you do not need a boat.It is an individual contest but you pick a partner to fish with each week.That person becomes the contest "judge" for you and likewise you for him.You can both fish from shore or go by boat.
I have fished all of these and they are a great time.

    • I've been visiting Upper Red each year (annual trip) for the past 7 years.  I have had "success" in catching fish....but never really a "great day".  From conversations I have had over the years with other anglers I know that there can be some better days and some phenomenal days on Upper Red....and I realize you can't force a fish to bite. I've spent way more than I know I should have on lures, jigs, etc.  But always wanted to make sure I had anything the fish could ever want. I'm only able to fish Walleye once a year so I don't get a lot of time for practice.   Lets get this out of the way - I fly in from out of state.  I can only bring limited gear, so I am basically confined to a sleeper house.  No tents, machines, etc. to help me be mobile.  And since I am in a sleeper - I am also limited to the time I can come based on safe-ice.  Usually the week between Christmas & New-Years. So - knowing that moving farther from the crowds, being more mobile, moving more often etc. is not an option, are there any tips you can offer to catching more fish from a fish-house?   I use a dead-stick in one hole.  Usually with the usual spoon and a live minnow.  Or sometimes just a plain red hook and minnow. My other rod I jig with a minnow head and one of many jigs, lures, spoons, etc.     Does my jigging need to be constant or jig, pause, jig pause?   I just need some basic tips or guidelines so I can get a few more fish on the line.   I've watched all the Ice-Team and other videos I can possibly find.  I've read everything I can find from Northland as well as everyone else.  Not much out there specifically showing or explaining what to do or how to fish in this kind of situation.  Most are about first-ice and/or they are mobile.   Anything you could suggest would be greatly appreciated.  I look forward to this trip every year....would just like to make it a little better of an experience.   Thanks! Rob
    • And what would there version be?
    • and a couple pretty good running backs too!!!!!!!!   bring on the Tide!!!!!!!!!!
    • not unless you can find an old lakemaster garmin compatible chip and if your garmin can indeed read it; otherwise you can get garmin's version
    • Freekying yeaa!  😃 About time. 3 3/4 of a game without as much as a field goal with two of the best receivers in the NFL would say this is a good move! 🤨
    • I actually have the opposite  Problem of keeping the ice solid. After about two weeks of fishing the same spot, The front tip-up is floating on water.  I now bank the back 3/4 of the house only To regulate the trapped air underneath.             
    • Does anyone know if you can put a Lakemaster chip in a dash mount GPS. I have a Garmin dash mount and it would be nice and handy if I could do that.   Thanks
    • Vikings Fire Offensive Coordinator John DeFilippo December 11, 2018 at 11:16 am   MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Minnesota Vikings’ offense struggled against the Seattle Seahawks on prime time television Monday evening – and it looks to be enough to cost the offensive coordinator his job.   On Tuesday, the team confirmed they have relieved John DeFilippo of his duties as offensive coordinator.   Kevin Strefanski has been elevated to interim offensive coordinator and will handle play-calling duties, the team said. The Vikings lost to the Seahawks 7-21 Monday evening, and were nearly shut out. The Vikings scored their only touchdown with 1:10 remaining in the game.  
    • oh the ice is good.....on the 2 lakes i hit. one had 10 inches the other 12!!!!!!!!
    • I just started her up and let her run a bit yesterday.  Wouldn't get out fishing until all the Holiday stuff is over in a few weeks but then the ice should be good and more snow hopefully.  Thanks for the reply over yonder! 🙂
