Beanies - Open Seat II / or willing partner

6 posts in this topic

I got bailed on for Saturday, my buddy married a nice Jewish girl and now has to atone for all man's sins (which includes not eating or fishing?? until sundown on Saturday.)

I've got an open seat and tons of bait, or am willing to join someone that has an open seat in their boat for the River Rat tourney.

thanks, LB

what kind of boat you got? mine is an 18 foot allumacraft with a 135 merc nice and wide and reliable smokes a little but runs like a champ. also have a extra large drift sock and my motor is equipped with a flow retarder so i can troll down to about 2mph less against a stiff wind or alot of waves. how do you like to fish? run and shoot? or just fish baby? if your boats better we can take yours. i don't have an entry but i can get one on sat can't i?

b1gf1sh1, I've got a ranger 1850 with a suzuki 150 - have a couple different drift socks, so can troll down if necessary. I'm open to just about anything, never fished an open water tourney before. I've been jigging the last few weeks with less luck than anyone deserves.

The TV just told me it's going to be nice. I haven't registered yet either, probably not an issue. I can drop down tomorrow and sign us both up if necessary. I'm intending on going out tomorrow evening and Friday morning early to see if I can set things in motion.

shoot me an email at lab@physics.umn.edu if you get a chance. I'll give a call tomorrow and make a plan.

thanks, LB

Blueroof, my mother always told me you get what you deserve which has forced me recently to take a good hard look at my lifestyle because I haven't been putting a dent in any fish populations on the river either. I'll be out on the river North of Hudson on Friday (tan Tracker Tundra with a couple of Mercs on the back) if you want to stop by and exchange areas to avoid during the tournament. I've already eliminated a lot of water but the only problem is that I'm running out of water to eliminate.

Use2b, we all know moms right, that's for sure. No sense arguing with that. I was putting quite a few sheepies in the garden for a while there, figured they would give me a bounty one way or another. Sad thing is I think word got out when one slipped out of my hand, it escaped and must have told the others what I was up to.

I'll keep a lookout for you tomorrow, I'll be out from 6-noon, likely north of Hudson too.

      Stopped in this morning and it looks like it should be good to go.

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.
    • h8go4s
      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
