TRF Lions Fishing Derby Aug 18th...

6 posts in this topic

So who's fishing it? I'm geared up to fish it again this year, it's only the second year, but last year was fun with lots of entries so hopefuly this year will be just as good or better.

I'm almost positive I'll get skunked this year...It's just a feeling I have, but I guess I felt the same last year too and got a 3rd and 5th place prize in the "other and Northern" catagories, so I guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens.

Anyways, I hope to see some of you there.

Well, I didn't get skunked...I caught a butt-load of fish, just nothing big enough to make the board. frown.gif It was a great event once again and was a beautiful day to be on the water. Walleye and Northern had some nice weights, 7lbs+ Eye and a 15lb+ Pike took 1st in those divisions, but the "other" division was on the small side, just under 7lbs took 1st, wow...Water is low, but fishing was good.

Talk to ya'll later.

Yah, I don't know Greg, but I guess he knows this river like no one else...the exact words I heard were "It'll be tough to beat him"! 2-1st places, not bad!! I think I'm just gonna follow him around next year! grin.gif LOL

It just goes to show, if you spend enough time on a body of water, you can really get to know it well. I'm sure if I fished the river every weekend, I would learn alot in a year and become a very good local fisherman too.

I've been fishing with Greg since I was a kid and he is as good as it gets when it comes to the river.

I haven't fished the river since they redid the dam area and took out that island. I heard the current is pretty strong below the dam now.

      Made it out last night. Beautiful night. Caught a bunch of Crappies, sunnies, a norsky and a few walleyes. All CR. Amazing how quiet the lake was. I was the only boat out for the most part. First boat in parking lot at 5:30 and no AI inspector this time. Have not seen them for quite awhile now.... Water temp was 78. Panfish were caught on simple Jig/plastic in about 12 feet along shoreline weeds. Walleyes on spinner/crawlers in 17-20 on midlake structure.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick
