Rivers Edge smallie tourney question

24 posts in this topic

Does anyone know who to contact about the Rivers Edge smallie tourney?
Last year we were boat number 100 signed up, and I want to make darn sure I get in this year before its too late.
I cannot remember what group sponsored that tourney, and there was no advertising that I ever saw.
I just happened to see a post out here at the last minute about it.

I better correct myself. We were boat number 65 last year then.
All I know is that we were the last entry.
Thanks Kevin.

How ya been HT?
I think it is Aug 8. Last year you could fish between the two dams and travel to Little Rock Lake.

Hey Kevin, I'm having a helluva time with the wait for Bass season. I've got every lure in my tackle box organized and all the hooks sharpened. Don't know what to do the next 2-3 months. frown.gif

I've never fished that area before, what's it like? Does it compare to the Monti area? I went above the Blanchard dam once.

Maybe I'll sign up for the tourney just to give me a reason to go up there for the day.

Last year, tourney day was the first time I had ever been on the water up there. VERY impressive bass waters.
Fishing was incredible. No idea if it is consistently that good, but wow.

Too late! The secret is out. wink.gif

What was the winning weight last year? 5 or 10 fish limit?

Ask Turner.
I think he could tell you to the 1/100,000th of an ounce what the winning weight was.

5 fish.

HT, The river above the 2nd bridge is very similar to Monti. The fish seem to be "chunky" unlike Monti where the fish seem longer and thinner. Come on up and fish it, it is a great time.

As far as the wt last year, I can't recall, but I do believe the boys from Team Beaver Tail were two hundreds of an once away from 1st.

Did everyone get their entries in? I see that they are flighting people in order that they receive payment.

I'm heading down to Bama tomorrow for some practice. The Largemouths are moving into the shallows getting ready to spawn, fishing should be awesome.

Contact Pam @ 320 393 2584, she may be the only one to answer your question.

Kevin,
How's your Monti visit going? Was that you I saw on Saturday near Monti? I've seen so many RiverPro's lately, I can't keep up.

Kevin, I met another RiverPro today. His name was Kevin, also. He said he had one of the first boats you made. Nice guy.

The fishing is starting to pick up again. The river dropped about 2 feet since Sunday. It will probably drop some more by the weekend. It looks like the water levels are going to be a repeat of last summer.

I'll probably see you out there next week.

      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,

       Thanks for the report Randy!

      So does this mean I should go shopping for a kayak?  But ya I should get one thoughWonder if I can fit one in a mini van.
    • 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!
