Thank You Chris Hanson.

4 posts in this topic

Just Wanted to give Chris Hanson a special thanks for all the hard work and effort that's he's been putting to Slabfest II. I know there's others involved with the whole operation also special thanks to all involved. It looks like it's going to be quite an event. For anyone who reads these forms and recognizes who is a regular to ULR and knows how to produce fish from it should be jumping at the chance to join this up comming weekends event. You'll get the chance to meet some real pro's to ULR. Mabey get the chance to increase our fishing skills. I know as soon as I read the post I talked with my two girls and signed up right away. Since then my 15 year old has had a 99-102 degree temp since last Saturday along with a bad sore throat and cold symptoms. Getting a throat culter done tomorrow. The 16 year old had 2 front teeth removed today to make room for 2 new ones ( braces ) I'm pretty sure she'll be fine by Saturday. I planned on comming up friday night and setting up in the general area and being mobile if needed. Not so sure the 15 year old will be well enough by then. I have my fingers crossed. It's still 48 hours from departure. My self and a buddy have our wheel house's on Winnie and leave them there mostly all winter. We pull them to URL an average 3-5 times a year. I have have fished every weekend since Jan. 1st so if I miss a weekend it's not like I haven't been fishing this year. I'm really looking forward to meeting the great people who work so hard to make URL a great fishing experience. grin.gif

I hope your girls are feeling better and can make the trip!

I don't want to take all the credit for making this happen. Its really just a bunch of us hooking up and doing a little fishing and hanging out!

Last winter, it was Kelly-P & Jonny-P that put the group on fish. I'm not taking any credit for that. We then all worked as a team to catch crappies and push each others trucks out of the crotch deep snow. smile.gif

Its going to be fun! Can't wait to meet everyone and get fishing!

See ya guys there!

      Made it out last night. Beautiful night. Caught a bunch of Crappies, sunnies, a norsky and a few walleyes. All CR. Amazing how quiet the lake was. I was the only boat out for the most part. First boat in parking lot at 5:30 and no AI inspector this time. Have not seen them for quite awhile now.... Water temp was 78. Panfish were caught on simple Jig/plastic in about 12 feet along shoreline weeds. Walleyes on spinner/crawlers in 17-20 on midlake structure.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick
