Pre-Tournament: Chisago, South and North Lindstrom

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!

This will be the second time the Tour has been on this chain of lakes, the last time was in August 2017. As it will be this weekend, that too was a catch-photo-release tournament and the fish were snapping! Teams reportedly caught numerous fish throughout the summer day and weights were quite respectable.

Team Shake N’ Bake currently holds a 5 point lead in the Team of the Year standings after strong finishes in the first two tournaments. However as we know, it’s early and the Minnesota Bass Tour has some big sticks chasing them down to get their name on the season-ending trophy! Here’s the schedule, lake details and ease-off order:
