Bass Pursuit League schedule set

Recommended Posts


We would like to invite you to the 2nd season of the Bass Pursuit Fishing league. We have been in weeknight fishing leagues for the better part of 5 years. Though we have always thoroughly enjoyed each season, the difficulties of weekday fishing has spurred some new ideas for our own fishing league. Weekday fishing leagues are usually tough because of the rush to get to the lake on time, fighting traffic, and then only left with 3 hours of fishing and then driving home after dark only to have to get up within hours to go back to work the next day. Participating in saturday tournaments all year as an only alternative can prove to be very costly with entry fees.

The Bass Pursuit fishing league will provide the following benefits:

A sunday morning fishing time schedule. Fishing times will be from 6am to 11:30 am. This will allow us to get a more peaceful time on the water before most of the pleasure boaters will consume the lake. We will skip the major travel holidays to allow for family business. The following lakes and dates are our schedule.

June 3rd Marion

June 24th Waconia

July 15th Crystal

July 29th O'Dowd

August 12th Minnetonka

August 26th Cedar Rice Cty

To keep costs down but make it competitive enough, the entry fee will be $220 per boat/team for the year. $180 of that would be going to the weekly payout and $40 going to the end of the year champions. Example: 10 boat league weekly payout:1st place $150 2nd $100 Big Bass $50

League champs: 1st $200 2nd $ 120 3rd $80

We will also allow weekly entries for $40 per boat.

The overall league championship will work on a point system. Example: Week1, 1st place receives 15 points, 2nd place receives 14 points, 3rd 13 points, etc. each weeks points then will be totalled and the lowest 1 weeks points will then be discarded. Whoever has the highest 5 week total wins. With the discarding of the 1 lowest weeks points will allow boaters that can't make every event the chance to still win the overall. Those that fish every week can throw out that bad week that we all seem to have.

This will be a 4 fish bag limit with an emphasis on releasing the fish alive and healthy. Most of the rules will be standard tournament rules that will be discussed before our first league outing.

If this is a league that would interest you, please contact us at the following:

We will also have a HSOforum with all the latest news and standings.

We hope to hear from you soon. We would like to get between 10 and15 boats. We still have some openings left. Thank you and Good bassin'.
