ROLL CALL for Sturgeon Excursion

34 posts in this topic

Hey guys, just putting together a little list of folks attending the Sturgeon Excursion. Just post with who's going to be in your boat and I'll get a list going.

We'll rely on Fiskyknut to keep us up to speed on ice conditions but right now, she's froze over good. The river is wide open further upstream but will require some trailering and driving to get there. Pray for some warm weather guys!

Like Fisherking01 said, CoolCats was a bust but this is going to happen one way or another.

- Chris & Randy Hanson

- Brian Raleigh, Darren Troseth, & Ed Church

Was thinking about atteneding this event. I wanted to meet so many of you!

I talked to a bud of mine who guides out of Border View Lodge and he is telling me that the river is froze over pretty solid. It has been in the single digits for lows at night the past 4-5 days! And not above freezing during the day.

I thought we have global warming? Or is this just another Y2K story??? The whole nation is cold.

Fish On!!!

grin.gif You make the call on global warming. Whether you beleive the scientists or politicians, the sturgeon will still be in LOW/ Rainy River. With that said, plan on attending. A bunch of FMers, and fellow fishermen. What could possibly be more fun! Hope to see you there. We will have a good time with or without you , better with each addition. Have a great day, Brent

Sparky,

Grab the Cranker and get up there and tell him that you won't take no for an answer.

I agree with Paul, Crankdaddy said he was interested in going and the Sturgeon might be the biggest beast he has or will ever tangle with.

I'm planning on being there again this year on Saturday. I topped my personal best last year, so I have to "Up the Mark" again.

So far I think it's just going to be me in my boat, but who knows I might have one other person with me. Looking forward to it, if we have to fish "up the river" oh well, it's usually pretty good for Sturgeon all over up there.

See ya'll there.

You should really take that 2nd person. I still remember the radio call for help grin.gif

Yah, It was harder than I thought too try and pull a Sturgeon over the side of my boat by myself and my catfish net was no help either! I could only fit about 1/3 of the fish in the net. I guess if I can't find someone to fish with me, I still have the marine band radio? grin.gifgrin.gif

Yes. There will be two of us. Steve Loos and Scott Nugent. We are newbies to this event and looking foward to it! Is there one particular place that everyone hangs out at after a day of fishing? We plan on fishing Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Loos has a cabin off of Winter Road River and although he's been there the last 30 years, he knows squat about Sturgeon fishing (too much walleye on the brain).

I would suggest that if you stop by Schusters Resort you will find the majority of all FM fisherman there. Since you are new the the Sturgeon gig, if you have any other questions, please feel free to ask either here or in the other post for this event.

Its a great weekend. smile.gif

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff
