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!

      With social media the new normal is for people to rant the open airways.  Unfortunately, some times people cross the line. I don't think that has happened here, but I would also say that I have sympathy for the new owners of the Landing.  I continue to go there knowing I will pay more than I generally would want to.  I would probably go more if their prices were lower as they are much closer to me than The Crescent.

      Another sunrise and another sunset made my day yesterday as I  enjoyed a day on such a grand lake. I spent part of the morning in old Minnesota making some phone calls, planning my day and even wetting a line.
       Berry and his crew Ted, Mike  and Scott had left early do to the weather conditions in southern Minnesota. They only managed 3 more fish after the move. "Stupid fish".
       I hung out in old minnesota until the generator ran out of gas so I could figure out how long it ran on a tank. !0 1/2 hours as she quit running at 8:30 am. Sure would be nice to have that burg system? Oh that's right its in the snow bank . "Stupid thing" not sure why it fails.
       After fueling up the generator I made the morning rounds to be a little disappointed with the fishing report "Stupid fish" Oh well as Wayne always says if we caught them all there would not be any to catch.
       I then went over to clean and prep Montana for Brian and Stacy as they were coming up for there 25th anniversary.
        I also gave Reid and Jason a couple tips as they were off to find the very elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie. They only caught one walleye in North Carolina so I told them when they came back it would be in a new spot.
       I then said goodbye to Steve from Michigan  and his crew in Florida. They did horrible on low and did not fair much better in florida the third night. They did have some action on tip ups though just outside the house.
       Then over to north Dakota where again no fish "stupid fish" what a horrible spot that turned out to be. We talked and I told them I would be back at 10:30 to move the house. Arriving back at 10:38  we were on the move. I told them if all went well they would be wetting a line again by noon. I also said if they wanted they could ride in north Dakota. Scott ask if I had any more shovels and I said sure do I have 3  so they all pitched in to dig her out. The move went well and just like I promised they were wetting a line  by noon. Cory said the ride was way smoother then he expected.
       The phone rings and its Stacy and Brian 2 hours early, perfect as the house is ready to go. At the same time Buddy Hillmen calls and says he is over the pressure ridge and were going to open another mile of road. OH! Oh! plan A is now switched to plan B. I get them checked in and I'm off to help with the new road.
       It did not take long to burn up a 1/2 tank of gas. I checked in with Buddy Hillmen and headed home to  gas up, check the fluids and get back out to the houses as I still had more work there. Moving north Carolina went well other then a few issues with the extension cords. As my very good pal Wayne says. "Here at Cookies we do it right cause we do it Twice"
       Once North Carolina was all set I was back out to Hillmen's highway where we would keep plugging away on the new mile of road. 2 hours later and I was heading home for a quick bite before making the evening rounds.
      Stacy and Brian were the first stop where Stacy had lost 5 fish at the hole. I gave her a tip on landing them so we will see if that pans out.
       Reid and Jason found north Carolina and had a blast fishing outside all day. They landed a few walleyes but no" elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie". I guess that's why I call them elusive.
       Last stop was at North Dakota ! I had played a round of Texas Hold um with them the night before and wanted another shot. 
        Scott did not play, he sure deserves to catch a few fish as he was always holding his fishing rod and jigging  when I stopped in. One fish was all they caught on the new spot "stupid fish".
       I lost a second time in hold um and headed home where I ran into a local Dave him and his son had set up just to the north east of us where they landed 3 nice fish.
       Well back to the grind again today. we have mike coming for north Dakota and Kieth and his kids coming for florida. I told both them that check in was at 2pm.

      Lundeens was out of shiners when I was there granted it was Sunday

      I believe that one in Monticello closed down
    • BassThumb.
      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.
