Couple of questions

Recommended Posts

wall_eye_assasin

What kinda weight for an anchor would be needed for an 18 foot Warrior boat. How many lbs and is there a certain type that is better than the other. And not that I am anxious or anything but I have to put my vacation in for next year. Does anyone have the dates of the Sturgeon Excursion? Any help with my questions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Not sure of the dates but not soon enough buddy! I hope to be up there with a boat though.

Good luck with the Warrior, don't know what the rocket scientists will tell you about weight for an anchor but if you're taking it up to the excursion you might as well pony up and buy a richter...and bring some more steaks and brews!!! smile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gif

I would think you'd be fine with a 25lb Richter and 100' of good anchor rope.

Its hard to find good anchors that weigh much more than that, without custom making something.

As for the Excursion, I believe we are tentatively planning the same weekend again.

Oh boy yep can't wait. Sounds like my group will get a little bigger again this year. Another boat in the mix and hopefully another 2 or 3 people. Once you go once you are hooked and have to make it a tradition.

How many years do you have to go to make it a tradition?

This will be year 3 for me.

It was a tradition for me after my first year grin.gif.

Should be plan on doing it April 19th for the offical day of the excursion? Might as well start planning early since we are talking about it and all plan on going anyhow.

25# richtor with 5-6' of coated chain and at least 100' of rope and you will be golden. I will at times have a second anchor off the other side to stop wind sway but at times the wind sway helps.

I used a 28# river anchor before and this 25# richtor is way better on hooking up in any type bottom.

TYVM for your advice, We have an anchor that will work for the back and will purchase the richtor anchor. My buddy was wondering why alot of people choose to put a chain on with the rope. Again tyvm for your time. And is the Sturgeon Excursion the 12 or 19th of April. Last year it was the 2nd Saturday. Just wondering.

2 things-

1) When anchoring, it lays on the bottom of the lake/river which should get the anchor to tip on its side easier. Once the anchor is sideways, it'll grab bottom.

2) Once anchored, it acts as a shock absorber between the rope and the anchor. With rope tied straight to the anchor, when the boat rocks and rolls in the waves, the rope can pull your anchor loose. A chain will lay on the bottom of the river and absorb this pull from the rocking and rolling boat.

I have a 18' warrior and also have a 25 lbs richter anchor with chain and it works great. Highly recommend it.

      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Scaled n skin on after gut n de-head. Wash n batter n sizzle. Fork at Dorsel n whole fillet falls onto plate or butter bun or hounds mouth. : ). Mmmmm sooo good.      I dream melt ice at Nine inches per week starting today -  Pike bay be open day before opener clear out to Marauderville. Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles. Maybe weekend after opener?  All good but just miss our lil chunk of paradise x million. An lake friends n nuts.  Think warm thinks!  Thanks for letting me post some n butt in on threads a bit. Still two feet of snow here n same ice an nothing to do outside easy.  Peace...     T

      Wakemup, I also like them scaled and the skin crispy but hate all of those scales every where so I fillet them with no skin. Cliff I have not heard any news about the City Auto Glass. Pike Bay will be open to fishing. Ice being off of it will be close! Cliff

      Two additional open-house meetings are scheduled in the Twin Cities metro area to help people understand and ask questions about Minnesota’s draft statewide deer management plan. “We heard from some who wanted open-house meetings closer to home in the metro area, so we added two to the other ones in the lineup,” said Leslie McInenly, acting wildlife populations and programs manager with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Here is the schedule for the metro area meetings: St. Paul, Monday, April 23, DNR Headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road. Richfield, Monday, April 30, Wood Lake Nature Center, 6710 Lake Shore Drive. These meetings are in addition to 35 others in which Wildlife staff will provide handouts explaining the deer plan and process, and will talk with attendees individually and in small groups. The DNR is taking online public comments on the new plan now through Wednesday, May 9, at mndnr.gov/deerplan. There will be paper copies of the questionnaire available at the open houses for those who are not able to complete it online. All meetings are scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and people can arrive anytime during the two-hour time frame. There will be no formal presentation at the meetings. Minnesota’s new deer plan sets a new statewide harvest target, increases citizen participation in deer management, and outlines ways to keep the population and habitat healthy. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Has anyone heard what they'll do about the City Auto Glass walleye tourney if the ice isn't off by May 19? Even if the ice is off....will they close Pike Bay?
