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... $$$$.

      When you rubbed your hand on the ducer before, did you notice a thin layer of ice on it?  I’m guessing No, with how you described the situation, but that can happen with a ducer that’s below freezing when you dunk it in the water.  It ruins sensitivity.     You’re open ice fishing, yes?  Not in the warmth of a house?  Like the others mentioned, could just be your graph doesn’t like the cold.  And it’s always better to have the depth range locked in than on auto.   Good luck Bob.
    • Walleye Guy
      Do you have a link to an article or regulation that shows the changes?
    • Wanderer
      Yeah, I think we’ve had enough.  The silver lining for me is I DONT plan on fishing this weekend.  But I do have to ready my sled for next weekend in ON.  I’m hoping the snow isn’t as bad up there.  Strange to think it’s a possibility but yeah, that’s how much we have in MN.   I kept my face plastered to the plane window going down to Denver on Monday.  The snow line peters out around the NE/CO border.  The only people not complaining about snow and cold at home were from CA!   I thought there was a noticeable lack of fishouses out on our MN lakes too.  I hope to get a good view of Mille Lacs when we come into Brainerd.  It was amazing how small the lake looked on the way out! 😄

      so anyone know whats up with snowfighter???????? he hasnt posted in a long long time?????? hope all is well with him. my parents bought the cabin from his dad!!!!!!
    • Dusty
      good news, I heard earlier that it was under consideration.
    • artjaco
      Looking at the latest images, the lake looks pretty iced over... are there any areas of thin ice / open water to be found? Not looking to fish, need to test some safety gear with a group. Any river mouths open or areas between Duluth and Tettegouche?
    • Bigfatbert
      Yup !!   Also note the new one over change to 26”... it’s currently 28” 18”-26 must be immediately released , and one walleye over 26” may be included daily and possession. Kab , Namakan, Sand Point , Crane . These changes start on the 2019 opener .

      So after the 8” of snow the other day the lakes are a huge mess. I was out for a snowmobile ride yesterday and went to a lake not to far from home. I like to ride out there a couple times a week. So I made a loop around the lake and the snow was about knee deep but had no issues. I was just about ready to head home and checked out an area I like to fish. Well.... I jumped a plowed road bank and sink in about 1 foot of water and slush. I pinned my sled and barley crawled along about 50 years to dry snow. So my weekend plans of fishing are done. This was a smaller lake so I’m sure all lakes are impassable. I have what I think id a good ice fishing sled. A Polaris 600 with a 136” track never had an issue before but with all the snow and slush now there’s no way I’ll be able to fish. The snowmobile trails haven’t beeen grommed after the last snow and I’m getting sick of riding the ditches. Anyone else annoyed with all this snow now? Thanks Mother Nature I now have nothing to do this weekend! 😥

      Way to let "Quasimoto" go and perpetuate his/her goofy genes...  If I catch a bunch of funny-looking, humpy 13.5 inchers in the future, I'm blaming you! 😁  (...as opposed to the scrawny 9 inchers I'm lucky to catch...) Poor thing looks like it's gonna get stuck in the ice-hole!
    • BobT
      I usually keep my sonar unit in the house because I put it on the charger every time I get home. Just for fun, the next time it does it, I might try just warming up the transducer and sending it back down the hole to see what happens. Thanks.
