Rivers' Edge Climber?

3 posts in this topic

Thinking about getting a Rivers' Edge Climber. Anyone have any experience with these? Good? Bad? The price is right for me so I am thinking of getting one.

Are you talking about the one that folds flat and has a couple of metal Vs that bolt on?

I had one and it is very stable and grabs the tree great. it was nice to slide the cusion towards the front for climbing and then towards the tree for sitting and waiting.

It is heavy(29 pounds I think) and noisy to set up, but with practice, effort and time you can get it in the tree with less noise. Thinking back I made more noise walking through leaves than setting it up.

I gave mine to a friend with an understanding that I might want it back sometime, maybe not.

I bit the bullet and spent the big $ for a 14 pound Summit climber and love it, so far...

I have one, plan to sit in it tonight. It is fairly heavy, but very stable & quite comfortable. As long as the tree you put it in is big enough it's a very safe stand too. If you buy one get some camo duck tape & tape a piece of pipe insulation around the front bar of the seat half, it will save on the knees. I need to do that, but I only remember when I'm in the woods & can't do anything about it.

I've take two deer with it so far. Well one with the first one, that was stolen, & one with the replacement. I'll be taking it out of the 4th different tree it's been in this year tonight, to use in WI this weekend, so it is still quite portable.

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
