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

      25 hp will be plenty for 12 foot boat with any amount of weight added.  I have no pics, sorry.  As stated really easy to do, your buddy should get er done in under three hours.  Don't spend a lot of money on the boat seats, I bought the cheap ones then added a outdoor chair pad for comfort.

      I was out there on opener as well and caught a lot of small fish. Averaged about 30 walleyes a day but nothing bigger than 17". Last weekend the bite was a lot tougher which I would assume was due to the weather.

      Has anyone heard of a giant walleye caught on the Saturday of opener?  Sounds like the boat called the DNR and they rushed right out to take pictures, etc. Not sure if it was close to the record or not, but I heard it was a giant.

      Ha, fixed.

        Wow that looks great! What type of wood did you use if you dont mind me asking?

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.

      Here's a couple pictures of one of the 14' boats I redid, a 25hp will be plenty of motor for a 12' boat.  The14' bat in the pictures with the additional weight from the wood would go 26mph with just me in the boat.  As you can se  left the compartment open for the gas tank, so I could monitor the level and so I could breathe better. Send me a message if you have questions.  It's really a fun project to work on these old boats.
    • HugeHogChaser
      Do you have any pics of the process or finished product by any chance?
    • HugeHogChaser
      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?
