Hitting the Mid-Season Point!
Tourney #3 this weekend finds us going up to the northeast metro and the lakes of Chisago, South and North Lindstrom presented by Clam Outdoors! Clam Outdoors has been with us since the beginning, offering their support to Minnesota Bass Tour members over the past 10 years! Clam Outdoors has a vast outdoor selection of fishing tackle and brands that can accommodate any soft or hard water seasons.
The size and member make-up of the Minnesota Bass Tour brings flexibility to our selection of tournament waters. Having 14 teams allows us to fish smaller acreage, and unique for us, it also allows us to fish catch-and- release waters too. Bring on the summer lunkers as we hit up these fun waters in the town of Chisago and Lindstrom!
The MN Bass Tour held our second-ever catch and release tournament on the Chisago chain of lakes this past weekend. While not a customary weigh-in as far as tournaments go, the format drummed up excitement among MN Bass Tour Members who noted this style prevents the unnecessary stress on bass that can occur with the hot summer water temps.
We are here to report that the Chisago chain of lakes are alive and well in their catch and release state and in the end, it was a new team that came out on top, notching their first win ever on the tour!
Where Has the Season Gone?
I’m mean, seriously, we are talking that it’s mid-August and already our 5th tournament for 2017! As being the last regular season event and a team of the year race that is as tight as ever, MN Bass Tour members will continue to press as we approach the final turn.
That “final turn” of course is a north metro chain of lakes that rarely gets to have tournaments on it – Chisago, South Lindstrom, and North Lindstrom lakes. These are catch and release lakes and offer up some chunky bass that are not hampered by many tournament circuits, we are stoked to have this on our schedule this year!
