Shore Gathering - Sept. 13th - Anoka

18 posts in this topic

I'm in!! That's only minutes from my house. Are there going to be any specific fishing times? I fish that area all of the time. (I'd be glad to share some info) There is a launch in Anoka on the East side of the Rum river and a nice big set of docks at the park next to where the Rum enters the Mississippi.---that particular point is a favorite with the locals.

What?
Gathering of FM shore anglers and guests (spouses, kids, friends, cellmates, etc.) for some early fall river action and meeting fellow FMers on the greensward, or beside the tailgate.
Where?
Peninsula Point Park in Anoka (Rum River flows into Mississippi River). A map will be posted later when I figure out how grin.gif
When?
Saturday, September 13th 2003 - all day (until it's time to go to Carver).
How?
Plenty of shoreline and features to fish, a boat launch across the river, a few picnic tables, some lawn, some shade, barrier-free access to the shoreline (Mississippi Point, at least - dunno 'bout Peninsula Point) and plenty of parking lot to tailgate in.
Bring?
Potluck picnic kind of stuff and beverages of your choice (at your own risk).
We'll have a turkey frier on hand for (hopefully) a fish-fry. This event has no fee, 'cause we're not getting a pavillion or anything like that. Just folks gettin' together for fishin' and socializin'. Come one come all!
For the Kids!!
Every kid that shows up gets a tackle "surprise grab-bag" courtesy of donations by the FM Pro Staff!

CASTING CONTEST!! (mid-morning, like 10 am or so)
Thanks to The Gateway Store (Kabetogama, MN) there are a few items who's uniqueness defies a grab-bag, so there will be a bit of gaming.

20' into a 5-gallon bucket (or 30' into a hoola-hoop if someone wants to bring a hools hoop), for kids under 12.

Every contestant gets a little something extra just for trying, and the 1st, 2nd & 3rd place contestants get a little something...unique, for best hits out of 5 tries!

Here's a map to Peninsula Point Park - We will probably have a big 'FishingMN.com' banner to help find us, but if not - look for a guy in a green or brown outback hat - that's me.

Aquaman,

It's too bad I can't be at this years event.....would've been perfect timing too cuz we always hunt the early goose opener then usually take a weekend off of goose hunting for other things such as fall fishing. Can you do me a favor and say something at the gathering about my being in Iraq even though I have never met many of you face to face? Thanks...

You bet I will, Jeremy! I'll raise a toast to you!

I "pre-fished" the park and did a little recon with my daughter (2) and she showed me up nicely - she got a 13" smallmouth and two big Redhorse suckers for the cut-bait stock (crawler-onna-bottom). Some other people were getting carp on corn. I'd bet some doughbait or boilies would provide action, too. I didn't throw any artificials - I was too busy building little wooden "mouse-houses" out of sticks in the sand grin.gif

I'm gonna set up the frier and the banner at the big fire-pit on the point, even though the picnic tables are up near the facilities building.
There is lots of shoreline on both the rum and Missy to fish.
Sand/silt bottom, some rock patches, and the only rigs I lost were to trees above my head

Too bad I have to work the day, or I might consider doing that one too.

I'm not sure if I'll be attending the Carver gathering unless we get some rain by then (which sounds like we might, thankfully) As I'd like to bring the boat along... but don't really want to be bumping stumps/rocks all the way up as I got a long shaft, so she draws a little more water. Otherwise I have some other tenative plans that night as well.. so prally won't make the decision till later in the week. Might run down there on Thrus/Friday just to check to see if the launch is open or not...

So how did it go. I went to the carver kitty gathering and didn't see anyone till 1:30 and I ran into Mr. Special and some others.

And by the way I caught and released a 38" Flathead on cut sucker, yup I said cut sucker.

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

      small mouth are still spawning
    • Wanderer
        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

    • Wanderer
      Yup!  I think that's where we're all heading!  'Cept I'll be in Ely.  Otherwise I'd join ya.   Have a good time, safe trip and catch lots!
