River Rat Tournament!!

4 posts in this topic

Beanie's 10th Annual River Rat Tournament – the St. Croix Rivers largest walleye tournament is being held on the 27th of September at Beanies in Lakeland, Minnesota. The tournament starts at 7:00 am and weigh in is at 3:00. Most years over 110 local St. Croix Valley and St. Paul area anglers get their competitive fish juices flowing and enter this fun river tournament. This “walleye” contest is really for three categories, the largest stringer of walleye and sauger, largest walleye, or largest "ugly" fish. Most years twelve to fourteen pounds will put a team in contention for largest stringer, largest walleye can be a trophy sized lunker or some years a four pounder wins. For the ugly fish a legal sized sturgeon, legal size is over 50" or a 30 pound flathead places well. The tournament is a great time with tons of door prizes, and this event is organized to generate funds for the St. Croix Valley Youth Service Bureau. Entry fee is usually 20 dollars, and a winner of any of the three categories can expect a couple hundred dollars or so in winnings. I'll be there hoping for some BIG fish, say hello if you see me, and good luck to all entries.

27th huh? frown.gif That figures, I have a wedding to attend up in Two Harbors. Perhaps I can skip out on the wedding, not like it's going to be their last one. Although there is something kind of sacred about a persons first wedding. wink.gif

      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...

      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.
