Post #1000!!!! Who cares, I just want to know who is in the Rivers Edge tourney.

12 posts in this topic

What rig are you going to be in this Sunday?
I will be in a 16 ft Jon boat(painted camo) with a 40 hp jet drive Evinrude. My partner owns the rig and he calls it his "piece of **** ".
I call it "a rig that gets me where few people ever have a chance to fish". smile.gif

Anyway, I know a few FM'ers and what their ride will be.
Hawgtide is the Basstracker jet rig.
KT is the "Sherry" Red River Pro.

I know there are another 3 or 4 FM'ers in it, and just wondering what you are gonna ride in, so we can meet up.

BLB, SH should be proud of his rig! I can only wish my early jet boats were as nice as his.
There will be several lurkers fishing the tourney in RPs. After you and SH pick up your 1st place check, you guys can buy the FM'ers first round....

I will be there in a green 14 foot jon boat with a 15 hp Mercury on it. I was contemplating using my Warrior but there are too many rocks that I don't want to deal with.

Good Luck.

KT.... I always call my rig a piece of carp... mostly so I will feel elated when I have the opportunity to get in to a River-pro. That 72 wachita just keeps floatin'. I am thankfull I have something that gets me within reach of some of the best fishing in MN. BUT, I'll actually be able to say why the heck was I fishing in that thing for so long. That is besides the monetary constraints...of course.

Might have a surprise for you on Sunday... We'll see.
I am looking forward to it again. Good luck to all.

Me and my buddy will be in the tourney for the second year in a row now. We just graduated from High School so we arent big time fisherman but just enjoy the atmosphere of fishing in a tournament. We will be in a blue crestliner with a 40 hp evinrude motor I think. So we will just see what happends, good luck everyone, cept KT you dont need it haha, just kidding.

I'll be there in a grey 1775 Pro-V with a 80 Yamaha tiller. Anyone have a jet conversion for that motor?

BM I wish, but I have non fishing related errands all day.

I did make it out last night on the Camden stretch. 15-17 smallies (all small and some pocket bass) and 3 cats but 1 of the cats Rob caught that went 23"! Not bad for North MPLS eh? And we only fished for about 3 hours maybe less. Jigs were the ticket for us yet again.

I will be in a red Lund Predator with a 60hp Mariner. I think we are boat #17.
I grew up on this stretch of the Mighty Mississippi, west side of river across from the Sartell landing, but I spent all my time water skiing instead of fishing. Man was that dumb, if I would have only known how much fun it is to catch those "bronze backs" back then!!
Good luck to all my fellow FMers'!!

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
