Denny's Super 30 Denny Nelson Tournament director

Hi Minnesota Bass Anglers

News Update ———4/12/2014

The 2014 season is coming fast. The first Super 30 tournament is just over a month away when we start on the Mississippi River, pools 4 & 5, on May 17th. We will be going out of the Alma Marina which is just north of Alma, WI. A Minnesota fishing license is all you need or Wisconsin if you have one.


As of this email I have 11 paid entries and a firm commitment from 6 other teams. A couple more team entries and I’ll be able to close the tournaments to teams that are not fishing at least four tournaments. If you are on the fence waiting for me to close these tournaments to just teams fishing the “circuit” now is the time to get an entry in as I am 99% sure that this will happen. See the exception for the River tournament below.

Mississippi River tournament – OPEN TO ALL ANGLERS

I am going to open the Mississippi River tournament to anyone that wants to fish it. There are several teams that are fishing all the other Minnesota tournaments but are not fishing this one. By opening this to anyone we will have a better field / pay off and it will add money to the Feldmann Nissan Team of the Year Pot. All teams fishing this tournament must pay the $100 team of the year fee, with their entry.


We are half way to a full field of 50 teams which is about where we are at this time of year. Now that the snow is almost gone and guys can think about soft water fishing I’m sure the entries will come in a little faster. I am confident that by the time of the first tournament on Tuesday May 27th there will be 50 teams at Lord Fletcher’s to get the Minnetonka tournaments underway.

If you have any questions about the tournaments give me a call or email. See you soon! Get those entries in and your boats and tackle ready— spring is here.

Ease off for Mississippi River – May 17th

Ease off at 6:30 am – from the Alam Marina just north of the city. Weigh-in at the same location at 3:30 pm.

Joe's Sporting Goods Seminars Spring 2014 Fishing

If you have a boat to sell – list it now – FREE. It will stay on Denny’s Super 30 until sold. On May 1st we will start charging a fee for you to list your boat. In case you haven’t noticed there have been 3 boats sold off our web site already. Take advantage now or later, we will get your boat looked at.

Entries have been coming in for both series and I will have an update in the near future. April is just around the corner and then the tournament season starts in May. Make a decision to fish the Denny Super 30′s; we would love to have you fishing with us in 2014. Good people, good lakes, good fun and what I think is good pay-offs.

If you have not received an email from me in the past couple of weeks, it is likely I do not have your current email address. If this is the case, email and we will get you on the Super 30 mailing list.

I have made a change in the Super 30 Minnesota schedule. There have been several requests to make it possible for teams to fish the NABC tournaments and not have to miss a Super 30 tournament.

In an effort to get as many teams as possible for the Minnesota Super 30, I have changed the North Long Lake tournament date. The new date is one week earlier - North Long Lake will be on August 16th. I hope this doesn’t alter anyone’s plans. I don’t like to make changes but we have to submit our permit requests prior to knowing what other circuits are doing. Thank you in advance for your cooperation with this change.

We have four teams that have confirmed entry to the Minnesota Super 30 already – a record number for January. Also several teams that have called to let me know they are making plans to fish this series. Let’s get this to 20 or more teams and have a great season.

2013 Updates

The 2014 Super 30 Minnetonka and 2014 Super 30 Minnesota pages have been created with new information about payouts, rules, and more. Take a look so you have an idea of what to expect going forward to 2014.

With the 2013 season wrapping up, check out the updated Top 100 bass tournament winners in the history of Denny’s Super 30. We have also added the Top 50 2013 Bass Tournament Money Winners.

Results are in for the Sauk Lake bass tournament on September 21st, which was the last Super 30 tournament of 2013. Finalized results are in for the 2013 Super 30 Minnesota Team of the Year sponsored by Feldmann Imports.

Wednesday Night September 11th 2013 Results are posted. It is the last Wednesday Night Bassin’ of 2013. There is one final tournament left for 2013 – September 21st, 2013 Super 30 Minnesota event at Sauk Lake.

Minnetonka Super 30 – September 9th 2013
It was an exciting finish to the season with the Team of the Year on the line. Ryan and Corey Brant were 5 points behind the leaders Seth Feider and John Figi heading out for the final tournament of the season. There were 7 places in the money with several teams that had an opportunity to make a move. Ryan and Corey made the biggest with a 30# bag that was enough to give them first place for the day, and enough points to tie Seth and John for the 2013 Marketing Architect’s Team of the Year title. The two teams split the 1st and 2nd place money and took home $1,600.00 each along with trophies. Cody Zdrazil and Dusty Mahn took second for the day with 29-3 and finished 4th in the Team of the Year. We had three teams getting into the money for the first time this year – Brett Morgan & Eric Zrust in 5th place (also big bass), Aaron McGraw & Pete Przepiora in 7th and Craig Zrust & Steve Rowe (sub for Tom Zrust) in 8th.

Thanks to all the anglers for another great season. See you next season!

The July 15th, 2013 Super 30 Minnetonka Bass Tournament is in the books. The Marketing Architects Team of the Year standings have been updated accordingly.


If you know you are having a sub for any of the tournaments, PLEASE try to let me know ahead of time. Email or phone so I can get the scoreboard and paper-work correct. It is hard to correct the scoreboards after I have them done. THANKS

Weigh-in Locations

Finding weigh-in locations is never easy. You can all help by having lunch or dinner at the locations we use. I hear all the time that there is nothing in it for them to host a tournament. If you do go – take a minute and let them know that you fish tournaments and thank them for letting us use their location.

We could not get back into Bar Harbor on Gull this year because the manager said nobody even bought a beer. I know that is false because I ate there along with several other teams. For some reason they don’t see us or remember that we try to support them. Thanks for your support in keeping the tournament locations open for all tournaments to use them.


That is the fastest way to get us turned away the next time we want to come back.

Denny Super 30 new address

An important heads-up on the new postal address for Denny’s Super 30 that you will see on the entry forms, effective immediately. The South Haven MN address has been replaced and checks are now sent to:

Denny’s Super 30

It will be very much the same as last year with a 25 boat limit of two (2) man teams with an entry fee of $50.00 per team. We need two anglers per boat to meet the DNR requirements.

4 bass limit
No fishing from 3:30-4:30pm
Ease off will be from the Maxwell Bay access – 4:30pm

Because of not having a mailing this year I need to make sure I have email addresses for everyone.
