River pro spotted in Aitkin

11 posts in this topic

Got to spend a little time on the miss. in aitkin county this weekend. Fishing was slow. The most interisting thing going was checking out the DNR river pro boat. They had the low profile model. Nice looking ride.
Saturday morning they ran from the 169 landing to big sandy and back. That would of been atleast a day for most boats. They where loading up at 2.
I did not know the DNR had any of these boat.

MN DNR Enforcement has 5 River Pros. All Lo Pro models. I just submitted the paper work for a 1872 Hi Pro today.

I think you are right Dennis. There are going to be a few people suprised. So Kevin did you give them guys some training in those boats or just let them loose. I would think it would take a little getting used to the stearing and a small river like the upper miss. dont let much room for mistakes. Now that I am thinking of it they did make some refrence to the stearing of a jet ski.
Do you guys know what other areas they are going to have these boats out on?

The Low Pros are the coolest boat to hit the river.

I like the Hi Pro.I didn't think I would like the high sides after running jons on the river.But I have found they are very nice to have.You can lean against them or just sit on the sides.Plus have you seen all the storage space along the sides! smile.gifThere is nothing laying in the bottom of my boat!
In addition a beaver isn't going to crawl in with you when your taking a knap! grin.gif

In two hours in Monticello sunday on the river we saw 4 riverpros go by! Now my wife can tell 'em by sight & sound, not just by the drool running down my slack jaw.

Soon. Hopefully at Cat Gathering she can ride in Dennis' and she too, will fall deeply in love with the boat. After that it's all about the money. I'm counting up which bodily fluids I can sell at what rate. How much can I get for a kidney?

Wow 4 River Pros in two hours.Now thats a lot of jet power!
You bet I can give your little lady a ride in the River Pro.I'll give anyone a ride.I like to see their faces when we finally stop.Looks kind of like they just got off a midway ride at the state fair. smile.gifMy wife got to drive it the other day.She had a grin from ear to ear.We were suppossed to do a little fishing but all she wanted to do was drive the boat around.....and around....and around.Didn't catch a thing.I guess the figure eight technique only works on pike and musky and probably should be done at a little slower speed than we were doing. grin.gif

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.
