Sturgeon Excursion 2007 Recap

5 posts in this topic

If you cancelled your plans due to the weather forecast

you missed a great couple of days on the water.

Sometime over night Friday 4 or 5 miles of ice flow

vanished. Open water fishing began in 4 Mile Bay and the

Sturgeon were present and biting. Fishing was good at

Baudette and Clementson also, the biggest fish seemed to

be in the Clementson area but good numbers of these fish

were caught by all attending.

It was good to see the FM bigwigs Rick, Paul, Chris,

some new fishing friends from the forum and some of the

group you can count on to travel to these event like IFF


Watch for more pics and hopefully some video soon on this

very website.

A very good time.........

Hi Curt,

Sounds like a great time was had by all who attended.

I sure wish I would have been able to attend this

event. But I will be making it up this coming weekend.

Hopefully the sturgeon will cooperate, as we will have a couple of sturgeon virgins with. I was wondering where

would be some places to try other than the bay. I am looking to try some other areas this year. Any info you could give would be greatly appreciated. Your can e-mail me at sxviper316@ yahoo((Contact Us Please)) com if you would like.

The fish are everywhere. The Bay is a real hotspot but if

you want to travel up river Clementson is real good and

the area around Baudette is also good. You can catch them

right out in front of River Bend, Sportsmans, Border View,

even the boat landing.

I am back up for more this weekend too. It ought to be

even better!

Thanks Curt,

Hopefully I will see you up there.

We will Be in a black 2010 Pro Guide with

a 175 Opti. I loved running one last year so much, I

had to break down and buy my own this year. Hopefully

I wont put her on a log on her first fishin trip.

It is always worth it to travel to Lake Of The Woods. Not a better group of people anywhere. Plus fishing is always awesome grin.gif.

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      This bass likes 50F weather and a Senkos

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.
