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!

      It was on the opener last year.

      Frazer Bay is as far as I venture West but that bay can be very good at times. I prefer Lindy Rigs with a 5' leader,#2 or a #4 hook, red or green bead by the hook, and a 3/4 oz. sinker. That time of the summer minnows and leeches work best but do not be afraid to try 1/2 crawler on this rig! Like PSU said, look with your electronics for the fish, then fish for them! 12" to 32" depths. Cliff

      Fished the big lake this morning ,,, Weather didnt start out nice but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, Got my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, There is a lot of mud covering this side of the lake but finding clear to tea colored water paid off ,,,Natural colored sticks took a majority of hit today and the cohos have grown 5 inches in the last month ,,, I had one 23 inches today

      Welcome to our Forum Muzzy!  You may want to consider hiring a guide for a day or even 1/2 day to start your trip.  They can give you a lot of good information that will help you put fish in the boat for the rest of your trip.

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you
