reinhart 100

I see that this event will be in Aurora MN at the end of June. Can anyone on this board give some feedback from previous Reinhart 100 events they have partaken in. The wife and I would be interested. How much time does it usually take to shoot 50 targets? Is it an all day event? Post some of your experiences from past shoots if you have attended. Thanks for your inputs.

I've shot the one in Sparta, WI the last three years. Have good friends that have shot it in Duluth the last two times it's been there.

We usually camp close by on Friday to get an early start Saturday. A tip here, it sometimes takes a while to register at the shoot. Register early on-line to avoid waiting, it's also cheaper.

Not sure how they will set up in Aurora, but at Sparta, they have 2-20 target courses and 2-30 target courses. (this varies a bit year to year) We've shot either 60 or 70 targets the first day so we could get out earlier on Sunday for the drive home. Saturday can be a long day, shooting that many targets. Maybe 10 hours? Again, this can vary.

It's a ton of fun. Most targets are reasonable hunting shot distances. Even the elephant, rhino, giraffe, cape buffalo, etc are usually no more than 40-50 yds. Bring your binocs to be able to see the 12 ring.

Thanks DonBo,

I have a cabin at Lake Vermilion so I thought being this is close it might be worth a try. Something new and exciting to do besides fishing if you will.

Man I wish this thing could be closer to the center of the state. Almost as bad as going to Thunder Bay for a shoot for MSAA...not that it wouldn't be fun tho

      You can get around anywhere on Ottertail. I have been out there the past couple weekends and we currently have 20"+ of ice. It is a little rough and some deeper snow drifts but you shouldn't have a problem. A lot of houses and traffic on the lake.

      Ditto this. ^^^^.  Plus they eventually crack and break.

      Mike, the clam bar is going to be your best bet. But I run the troo shine strip lights in my one man flip. There great super bright and have sticky tape on them to connect to a pole. The clam light bar is about same in price maybe a bit more but extremely bright and can be mounted in your poles. I also have the clam sled lights on mine to not as bright but helps light up the ice in front for fishing or the sled or both. Hope that helps

      I am looking for a LED Rope lights to hang in my clam ice house for fishing at night.  I know you can purchase a light bar from clam, but I am thinking there must be a cheaper way.  I am looking for suggestions.  Please provide the brand.  Thanks, Mike

      The white hockey tape, then black electric tape over.  The hockey tape by itself gets too wet for me. The black electric tape sheds water better than the hockey tape.  After a few yrs of use the black will leave a gunky residue on the rod if used by itself Have also tried the reel bands, not a big fan of them when fighting a big fish.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Masking tape on rod handle then electrical tape reel to rod. Works good!

      Hockey tape for me.  Bought a roll 10 years ago and probably have another 10 years left in it, unless I go on a shopping spree for rods/reels!

      Finally got out there Saturday after wanting to for almost 10 years! After reading all the pointers on here and looking at maps we gave it a try. Ended up catching around 15 between the 2 of us in about 4 hrs biggest being about 6lbs. Had a blast and will definitely do it again!  Oh and you're not kidding about a lite bite I think only one actually pulled the bobber  under!

      I was on Turtle Lake.  I've always found the clarity good there although I also haven't seen a boatload of pike.  Centerville was awful a couple of weeks ago as was Peltier although they both can change in a few weeks.  Sorry I didn't reply sooner but I was up north seeing almost 50 fish in two days on a small lake west of Bemidji.  Nice clear water there and pike from 10 to 38 inches long.

      Just fished Potato for the first time this winter. Found walleyes in 15 feet of water off the mid lake humps during the day/late afternoon. Had the camera down and saw plenty of eyes but couldn't get them to bite. Was wondering if this lake is more of a night bite.
