River Rat Tournament!!

Recommended Posts


Beanie's 10th Annual River Rat Tournament – the St. Croix Rivers largest walleye tournament is being held on the 27th of September at Beanies in Lakeland, Minnesota. The tournament starts at 7:00 am and weigh in is at 3:00. Most years over 110 local St. Croix Valley and St. Paul area anglers get their competitive fish juices flowing and enter this fun river tournament. This “walleye” contest is really for three categories, the largest stringer of walleye and sauger, largest walleye, or largest "ugly" fish. Most years twelve to fourteen pounds will put a team in contention for largest stringer, largest walleye can be a trophy sized lunker or some years a four pounder wins. For the ugly fish a legal sized sturgeon, legal size is over 50" or a 30 pound flathead places well. The tournament is a great time with tons of door prizes, and this event is organized to generate funds for the St. Croix Valley Youth Service Bureau. Entry fee is usually 20 dollars, and a winner of any of the three categories can expect a couple hundred dollars or so in winnings. I'll be there hoping for some BIG fish, say hello if you see me, and good luck to all entries.

27th huh? frown.gif That figures, I have a wedding to attend up in Two Harbors. Perhaps I can skip out on the wedding, not like it's going to be their last one. Although there is something kind of sacred about a persons first wedding. wink.gif

      How was the trip? I was on the lake Tuesday and the weather was as good as it gets!

      For those looking for some decent perch they seem to be hanging in the reeds chasing crawfish and minnows.   Some real dandies in there if you're in the right patch of reeds.  Not many out on the flats yet.

      Been a tough bite the last couple days for me. Catching a few here and there but no consistency. Caught fish on crawlers leechesand jigging raps but for the amount of fish I’m graphing not near enough catching All my bigger fish have came on the jigging raps. How is everyone else doing?

      Tried my luck on Lory lake for some pan fish. trying to catch a meal. didn’t find any sunfish over 7” and a few 9” crappies. Not what I was expecting hoping for a little better. Might have to try a littler bigger lake for some better results.

      @cherokee muskie-mike is spot on the dog food... When I use to camp at hoodoo point campgrounds I tend to use nightcrawlers if I have any to spare (in a minnow trap). Caught too many rusties while fishing.
