2013 Sturgeon Excursion April 20th


Recommended Posts

Capt. Quicksteel

I started this same thread last year. I'm sitting here drilling holes in ice and pretending the Vikings have a chance this weekend so naturally the Sturgeon Excursion comes to mind! Do we know dates yet? It's too much fun to talk about it for months to wait any longer.

Any activity on this yet? I would like to try and put this on my schedule this year and the sooner a date is set the better.

Years past it has been held the weekend after Walleye closes, which is April 14th.

I'll be up there April 17-23rd. It's nice to be up there after walleyes season ends, and before the catch and keep starts. This year it works out perfectly for my schedule!

PS Borderview lodge is currently booked during those dates.

As said traditionally the Sturgeon Excursion date has been the weekend after walleye closes. That would put the SE on the weekend of the 20th.

We're coming up Thursday and staying until Monday at Wheelers. Two boats and 6 people this time. This has gotten to be one of the high points of the year! Looking forward to seeing everyone out there. It sounds like Adrians might be the "headquarters" this year.

Looks like it will be frozen for miles in every direction next weekend. Is anyone still going up. I'm not too keen on drilling holes by Wheelers Point!!

Who's all going up to the Rainy. I will be fishing with some guy's from Fargo/Moorhead. Coming from the Cities via Lake Vermilion. Hopefully I can get my boat out of the snow and out the lake road eek

I sure am glad this heat wave has set in and taken care of the snowpack up there grin Hopefully we will have lines wet by 9:30 AM

Friday.

Staying at Borderview Lodge for Friday and Saturday night.

Good Luck to all

The sturgeon were biting pretty good in the Frontier landing area last weekend. River is down quite a bit so be careful.

Was hoping on getting back up this weekend but with the snow and sleet here now, I think I will forget my plans.

Good luck to all.

I'm sure some canceled on account of the ice and late Spring.

Our group drove out of a nasty snow storm to get up there.

Have a look in the Rainy River forum for reports.

I was there with my group of three, staying at Adrians. They had 5 cabins rented, one group of three, us in cabin 6, and one other. We met the group in the three cabins at the lodge and they caught a few on Saturday, one guy knew what HSO was but they were not with the "Sturgeon Excursion". I believe that Surface Tension's group was the other cabin but we never crossed paths during the weekend beyond a couple of phone calls.

We did well on Saturday and I posted pictures in the Rainy River forum.
