Could anyone tell me how many boats usually attend the tourney? I have not been around this tourney before. Does the river get pretty busy that day?

I wouldn't be bothered by the number of boats in the tourney so much as the number of pleasure boaters that will be getting out for their "one last trip" excursion. I'm going to ask one last time very nicely: Mother Nature, how about a little rain on Saturday?

Walli1,

Did some pre-fishing and run timing last weekend. With my 17 foot starcraft with a 90 merc on back at 8/10 open throttle it is a 22 minute run from Beanies to the no wake at the Kinny (and yes I did go no wake through Afton). I know your waters are south of there so you would only lose an hour to be in your home waters. BTW we couldn't catch a walleye last weekend for anything. Only second time being blanked on the river this year.

Good luck to all on Saturday.

I'm not planning to go down to my stomping grounds, I'll fish that area sunday morning. I found a couple eyes here and there up above the Kinni, heck I'll just roll with it, its all about having fun anyways, catching fish is just a bonus,looking forward to meeting new people and putting faces to the code names. cool.gif

Got confirmation from the war dept and my fishing partner just tonight......I am in! Yes! Even though I was totally demoralized last year with my one walleye, a gar and a few dozen sheepies, I have to fish this again! Hope to meet up with a bunch of you guys out there! Last year I would say there were thirty five to forty boats fishing and there were a handful that smacked the heck out of the fish while we novices scratched our heads. Don't be put off by it, many of these guys fish the river week in and out and put people on fish. Enjoy the day, enjoy the people you meet and hopefully put a few fish in the well. It all goes to a good cause so we can't lose! Fish against the best, learn a few tricks, get a whole day on the water, what more can you ask for. Good luck out there, enjoy the day the good Lord gave you and.... tight lines!

Tunrevir..good to hear yer gonna make it this year.As I plunk away at this keyboard with my two index fingers,Its pouring out.2 full inches of rain so far tonite,I had some decent fish working last Sunday but I think that plan has flowed downstream now.With no chance to get out before the tourney Ill be going into it blind,but sometimes thats the best way.By reading the posts here,sounds like the FM gang will make a pretty good show.All it takes is a pig or two and some other legals to place high in this.Most years 13 to 16lbs will win it.Good luck to all and I hope to get to meet you guys down at beanies.Blueroof!!!!!! you dont need to preregister at beanies,just show up and sign in and pay Saturday morning,glad you found a partner.

Croixeyes, sounds like we may finally cross paths! I am hoping the cold front and the weather dies back a touch before Saturday. It has been a couple weeks since I was in that area and I am thinking there may be a shift in where the fish hide with the runoff from all this rainfall. I may have to shift my plans slightly as well. The good news is, I always love the bite when there is runoff and dirty water, seems to get the fish going! Good luck out there, I'll be the guy with the faded blue/gray Mickeymouse hat on. say hello if you see me!

I’m in and fired up! Say to any of you FM current nuts out there, do you have any basic (not looking for spots) advice for us stable water folks for presentations following heavy rains? Thanks so much! Good luck to you all and have a safe day!

      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips
    • Perchy
      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.
    • Captain Acorn
      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish 
    • LBerquist
      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?
    • proguide
      I would call the catfishing this week seasonal.  It is a pretty normal bite for a period of lower water and heat.  The catfish are in post spawn and spread out in their summer haunts.  The more aggressive fish are in the deeper water in the middle of the river.  As usual stay on the move and keep the bait fresh. Bait does not seem to matter still but people with frogs are saying they are getting their better hits with them.

      Wildlife artists can submit entries for the 2018 Minnesota Trout and Salmon Stamp through 4 p.m. Friday, July 28, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  2017 Trout and Salmon Stamp Competition
      First Place: Timothy Turenne Anglers can purchase the trout and salmon stamp validation with their fishing license for an additional $10. For an extra 75 cents, purchasers can receive the pictorial stamp. It is also sold as a collectible for $10.75. Revenue from stamp sales is dedicated to trout and salmon management and habitat work. Trout or salmon must be the primary focus of the design, though other fish species may be included in the design if they are used to depict common interaction between species or are common inhabitants of Minnesota’s lakes and rivers. Brook trout designs are not eligible this year. Artists are prohibited from using any photographic product as part of their finished entries. Winning artists usually issue limited edition prints of the artwork and retain proceeds. Judging will take place Thursday, Aug. 3, at DNR headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul. For more information and contest guidelines, visit mndnr.gov/stamps, or call the DNR Information Center at 651-296-6157 or 888-646-6367. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
