River Keepers News.

This week two eagle scout candidates that conducted projects for River Keepers will have their Court of Honor. Brett Cardon's will be on Thursday night and Cyrus Artz's will be on Saturday evening. Bob will speak at Brett's. Brett cleaned out, fixed windows, built a workbench, and installed lights in a shed at the Living Lab "Woody house", and Brett built two beautiful kayaks for River Keepers. Contact Bob for location and time information if you are interested in attending.

Is your registration in for the canoe and kayak races on Saturday, June 5th? For the first time, there will be a brat/burger meal at the Red Bear Grill and Tavern following the race. Lots of categories including a fun race for those of us not so athletically included! If interested feel free to espond to us by e-mail for an application and more information.

The day of Race the Red is also National Trails Day.,,,thousands of people will flock to discover, learn about and celebrate America's on-water and on-land trail systems. For more information, go to www.NationalTrailsDay.org. This year’s theme, Trails and Health . . . A Natural Connection, brings awareness to the health benefits of trail activities.

Also, that same day is the Lil' Fisherman's Derby and Clinic at Dike East from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. This event is free for kids and their families. Learn the basics of fishing, try land a big one, win prizes, receive a free t-shirt & bait, free hotdog and Coca-cola product while supplies last.

One way each of us can do our part to prevent contaminants from reaching waterways, is to develop a rain garden. See www.dnr.state.mn.us/volunteer/mayjun04/raingardens.html

      We've been big fans of the 3" minnows, and 5" leeches, along with crawlers, great color combinations, with floating versions ta boot.👍👍     Found the pinched half crawlers to work great for adding spin to "slow death" presentation...

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      Ive been out a few times as well..have tried from the harbor all the way up to boyscout...have been getting a few everytime out but has been slow for me....been trolling crawlers with big colorado blades..have caught fish on flats by barkers,between the bridges,and out from clyde area....got 6 cats accidentally while trolling boards by the community hole south west side of spirit lake...water clarity still sucks in the harbor..a bit better the farther up river u go...has it been kinda slow for everyone?????ive been doing better on fish lake.lol

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂
    • LBerquist
      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.
