reinhart 100

I see that this event will be in Aurora MN at the end of June. Can anyone on this board give some feedback from previous Reinhart 100 events they have partaken in. The wife and I would be interested. How much time does it usually take to shoot 50 targets? Is it an all day event? Post some of your experiences from past shoots if you have attended. Thanks for your inputs.

I've shot the one in Sparta, WI the last three years. Have good friends that have shot it in Duluth the last two times it's been there.

We usually camp close by on Friday to get an early start Saturday. A tip here, it sometimes takes a while to register at the shoot. Register early on-line to avoid waiting, it's also cheaper.

Not sure how they will set up in Aurora, but at Sparta, they have 2-20 target courses and 2-30 target courses. (this varies a bit year to year) We've shot either 60 or 70 targets the first day so we could get out earlier on Sunday for the drive home. Saturday can be a long day, shooting that many targets. Maybe 10 hours? Again, this can vary.

It's a ton of fun. Most targets are reasonable hunting shot distances. Even the elephant, rhino, giraffe, cape buffalo, etc are usually no more than 40-50 yds. Bring your binocs to be able to see the 12 ring.

Thanks DonBo,

I have a cabin at Lake Vermilion so I thought being this is close it might be worth a try. Something new and exciting to do besides fishing if you will.

      Pretty sure mine will be ready by the time the ice comes off our area lakes.... untill then, I hear the suckers are already starting to run

      Was a good winter for sure. Had a blast and learned a few things fishing with you, Chris.

      We drive by the stripping station on Cutfoot weekly & try to keep people up on that too. I think it may be a bit later here, will check it out tomorrow

      Have a couple spots that are 10' open, I live on north side of Pike Bay, large rocks along shoreline helps heat water. Hard to see the ice condition on the Bay as there is a lot of slush on top, once that melts and the warm sun hits the ice it will go quick. Our new Chesapeake pup discovered she lives on a lake yesterday.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
