ROLL CALL for Sturgeon Excursion

Recommended Posts

hanson

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

The Cranker

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

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.  
    • Wanderer
      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.
    • PRO-V
      Gulp spray seems to help also.
    • Wanderer
      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.
    • Hawg
      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel. 
    • PRO-V
      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.
    • going4it
      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy. 
    • Brandon Klatt
      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol
    • mrpike1973
      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
