Ok here is the deal. My sponsor, Hansen Cycle & Marine, is looking into taking on River Pro but they need to see one and ride in one. Any one out there with a River Pro that wants to show it off and make a road trip up to the Great white north and maybe some late season Catting, Please drop a note. If the like what they see they will perhaps deal them for Kevin Turner, RiverPro, Then I can get into one and still keep my Sponsorship.

If this all works out I will be in one of them hotties soon. The only way so far is to get them down to the Twin Cities to test one there but getting them there is going to be a real chore.

Thank you for your support and we will leave a light on for you...........

There are several River Pro's around the region. Many are in or near the Twin Cities area of MN.

Closer to home Dennis Flom here in the Fargo area has his off the river and ready to go cat'n if the opportunity is right. Maybe drop him a e-mail and see if he has time?

As far as I know, River Pro markets all their own boats and do not go through any distributors or middlemen.

Ya we have been talking to Kevin and he is going to try to get a boat lined up in the cities but it is going to be hard for them to get down there.

I guess we will keep trying or work on the cities trip.

Well I just got off the river with Kevin Turner and Pete MLinar in Pete's River Pro... All I can say is Oh My god.....

They came all the way from the Twin cities to show us that boat. If all goes well our dealer will be offering the River Pro for those of us up north. That boat is unreal. It has to be true that the boat will get you on more fish. We went through areas that made me white knuckle thinking we were going to hit and get thrown out of the boat but not even a bump.....

I'm not sure Im going to be able to sleep after that. Thanks to Fishing Minnesota.com, I will be able to move into the new realm of fishing.

Watch out kitties and fellow <Sumos>< cause were commin looking for ya........

Rick I'm gonna have to invite you up for some fishing when this boat deal goes through.. Hopefuly in less than two weeks. So keep some open dates next summer Rick.

Thank you Kevin and Pete.... Was a real pleasure. I mean that.

I had a chance to finally meet Kevin face to face on his way trough the region. A Great guy, and obviously dedicated to building the best boats he can.

We had lunch and chatted. (Thanks again for the lunch Kevin!) Time went by too darn fast and I could chat rigs with them for hours. We will have to try to have River Pro here for the 2004 Frog Stomp next August/September and do it up right.

I have a strong hunch we will see a lot of River Pro's in the region soon. I am certain it will be the boat of choice on the Red River system. If anyone had any doubt that they are capable of preforming. Well....one trip in a River Pro on the Red will settle that fast enough Eh.

Yup, some boats companies sell pretty, but River Pro produces performance.

Bada-Bing...Bada-Boom..Simple as that!

Will do Rusty,
I'll try to keep open a slot to get out fishing the Red River with you next summer.

All it takes is a ride in the River-Pro to see the obvious advantages it gives to ANY River Rat.

Kevin Turner (River-Pro) has done his homework and then some to ensure top quality and River performance for almost any river condition nature can throw at you and still get to where the fish are.

AHMEN..........The sooner I sell my new boat, the sooner I can get into that RP. So if any one of you know any one looking for a real nice fishing boat for a good deal please send them my way..

I would love to keep it just for lake fishing but you know how that is... $$$$.

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.
    • tacklejunkie
      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?
    • gimruis
      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.
    • gimruis
      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
    • Mike89
      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..
    • Rick
      Good fishing in the Blue Earth river too. Also, a short drive to Rapidan can be productive.

      Welcome to the site @eg_gophers2124 I have never even seen the lake but these screen shots might help. Navionics Judging by the Lake Finder report, it’s a super clear lake; 17-20 foot clarity but with plenty of weeds. A couple shots of the weed report. Starting from scratch, I would head to the southwest area.  The southern basin has better looking structure too. You might do well simply working edges of the emergent weeds with spinnerbaits in low light and weedless frogs or spoons up in the weeds when it gets to be mid day.  Crawler under a slip bobber on the weed edges could do well also. It’s purely guessing on my part.  Hopefully someone with experience on the lake will chime in. Good luck!

      walked that creek to the river many years!!!  again home area!!!!  
    • Rick
      Bring your spinning rod and fish for walleyes or white bass at the confluence. Wherever the river is pounding the shoreline fish the current breaks for big flatties. Heavy fiberglass rod with a sturdy baitcaster and 50 lb power pro line will be effective. Fish the head of snags for channels. Setup just like a Lindy rig for them with 1 oz to 5 oz no roll sinker and a big live bait like a 7" bullhead or even larger sucker for flatties. Use cut strips of bait off a large sucker or something similar for channels. Frogs can be good too. Have fun.

      Thank you Vermilliongold. This took care of the problem.
