M.O.W. Metro Bass League

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

Wanted to get some information out to you about a new weeknight Metro bass league that my partner and I are going to be starting this year. This league came about because we grew short on patience with other leagues that claim to be about having fun, but end up being too competitive and hostile. We've had enough and are now taking our time and resources to create a league with low-mid range entry fees that is founded on the principals of FUN, learning, and camaraderie, with friendly competition thrown in. Entrants are expected to be courteous to one another and actually share information about their success. We're not trying to steal spots from one another, but we DO want weekly winners to give a brief explanation about how they managed to win! Not everyone is a pro and we can all learn from one another. Please keep all of this in mind as you consider fishing with us this year!

The basics:

$250 per team of 2 for the season. 100% payouts.

Fishing 9 events rotating on Minnetonka, O'Dowd, and Waconia. Tenth event will be an 8 hour tournament that is optional and separate from weekly standings.

Thursday nights from 5-9 pm. If most people interested can't make 5:00, we may push start time to 5:30.

Fish 3 weeks per month starting in June with an "off week" each month.

6 bass limit (LM and SM).

Limited to 15 boats. Weekly payout based on 15 boats is $175/1st, $120/2nd, $40/3rd. Year-end points winners get $400/1st, $210/2nd, $130/3rd.

If anyone is interested in signing a team up or just getting more info, please contact me or visit

www.mowbass.com or

It's short notice, I know, but we have an informational meeting TONIGHT, March 11th, at the Buffalo Tap in Savage. Come and get some info and sign up! If we don't fill the field tonight, you can still register by visiting our HSOforum and printing off a registration form.

We look forward to fishing with a bunch of great guys this summer!

League start time has been decided as 5:30pm. An extra half hour for those of you that were considering fishing, but felt like you'd be too cramped on time to make the lake by 5!

Just a heads up to those considering our league:

Registrations are starting to come in and spots are filling up! Remember- we will only accept 15 teams! Spots are filled on a first-come first-served basis and teams that fish this year will have priority registration next year. We are generating a lot of interest, so get signed up before it's too late!

We have had a handful of people contact us wanting to fish, but in need of a partner. Most of these are non-boaters and would need a partner with a rig. If you have been considering fishing with us, but need a partner, please contact me and we'll try to get you set up with a teammate!

    • Here are some pictures from this years trip!
    • How do you keep ants off your feeders, especially hummingbird and oriole feeders? I've tried Toro and Raid sprays on the post but it seeks the birds don't like that smell either and i don't see many for a while. Has anyone else experienced that? Any good ideas?
    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
