Sturgeon tourny mouth of little fork river April 28th

7 posts in this topic

Let everyone know there is a sturgeon tourny on April 28 in the mouth of the little fork. The Y-knot and junction bar are putting it on again this year. It runs from 12:00 until 4:00. Only cost $10.00 to enter. With that $10 you get a meal that is worth $10 all by itself and a chance at lots of prices donated by local business. Plus cash for the top three sturgeon. Very good time if anyone likes having the chance at catching big fish, win prizes, or eating an all you can eat buffet for only $10 bucks. Hope to see some of you out there.

Last year I was sturgeon fishing the rainy,april 28th, while a sturgeon tourney was going on and it was not run very well. On numerous occassions I saw sturgeon out of the water for over 30 minutes waiting to be mesured. Made me sick. Waiving flags to get the measurer's attention does not work, I sure hope this tourney is run better this year.

Did the river rise at all with the recent rain? The water is awfully low this year.

Only raised a couple of inches but grateful for anything at this point.

The low water really isn't affecting us now as far as I can tell. Although it was maddening waiting for ice to go. Shouldn't have an issue with dissolved oxygen as long as water temps are low. Should ask my biologist buddy if it will affect the spawn.

There are some docks on the river that are getting pretty shallow and some resorts in some of the back bays of the lake that may have some access issues.

We have seen how qickly the Rainy can go from record low to record high and are hesitant to petition the River Gods for rain. We'll hope for the best & get what we get.

Dutchman,

Thanks for the update. I agree that any water is welcome at this point. I haven't seen it this low for a few years.

Jigster,

The new motor is gonna be wound out to the rugs. That's what insurance is for right? Right. I don't think were going to be over 10mph all day. Can't wait for Saturday.

      I can speak for Ludlows and have nothing but high praise. Mark, Sally, Paul and Kelly run a top notch resort. June to early September they are usually about Max capacity each week. Outside of the peak season weekend use is still relativity high. They don't have a restaurant on site but will provide(cooked in house) high end meals for some large cooperate groups that come in. They aren't struggling and the service won't be beat anywhere on Vermillion.

      hope you all are paying close attention to the meandered water issue at bay here in SD. Sounds like some landowners in Mn are taking notes.    Its a difficult subject and I and can see both sides from private and public perspectives.

      Now that the ice is gone, what do people fish for before the walleye opener? Any reports?
