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.

      7/24/17     Got my son and one of my daughters out with Grandpa Smutka on Waconia this afternoon (I have football practice every morning this week). We targeted panfish alongside a weedy reef. Small jig spinners (1/8 ounce VMC Mooneye Jig with a #2jig spinner and a 2" Powerbait Minnow) slow rolled over the weed tops caught tons of crappies and a bonus bass. A 1/16 ounce jig with a 1" Power Grub suspended 4 feet below a slip float caught crappies and sunfish, Caught numbers and some nice ones--beautiful weather and great time for the kids spent with Dad and Grandpa. Good luck, take a kid fishing, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      I know back in the day, late 90's, people camped out along (approaches beside it)the forest road along Birch lake.  The road on the right, right before the dam on hwy 1 south of Ely.   I dont know all the legalities of thr forest there, they may or may not have been legal.

      The local state parks are also an option. Very modest yearly fee there also. Cliff

      Absolutely. I'd never get mad at a guy squirrel hunting while I'm deer hunting. Thats just public land hunting. Now if he shot at squirrels very close to me that's different. Maybe the guys I talked to had a bad experience but it isn't that frequent. That's what I hope anyway.

      Looks like the forest service campgrounds charge a modest fee.  But the are pretty nice.   Fall lake, fenske lake are a couple to consider

      Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      We have had a great week of fishing with a few showers and strong winds.

      Up in Canada, jigging on reefs and underwater humps are producing the best in 22-28 ft. with gold, pink and orange jigs. Pulling spinners is also an option on reefs in 22-24 ft of water.

      In Minnesota, walleyes and perch have been caught pulling spinners in 18-28 ft. West of Four Blocks, East of Crow Duck and East of Garden Islands, with black and gold being the most effective.

      On both sides, muskies have been aggressive when throwing buck tails and top waters on rock reefs.  The algae bloom has slowly begun to pick up, however, fish are still visible.

      We hope to see you soon!
