FM gathering in Crookston roll call....

Recommended Posts

Wiskers

I am looking for feedback for an FM gathering in Crookston this summer.. I am thinkging July 10th weekend. Fishing the Redlake river or Red River. Pending on water available in the rivers boats and shore fishing will be a great adventure..

If the river is anything like last year we should have a great place to have a gathering below the dam.

Crookston has a great park for camping along the river and several hotels and motels.. for preferred rates just tell them Wiskers sent you.. The Northland Inn and AmericInn are your best deals.

looking for feedback and ideas for this event to get them city slickers out of the metro up to the boondocks.. lol lol.. Small boats and River Pro's welcome if we use the Red Lake River... I will keep posted on water levels... ...

Let me know your thoughts...

Bikini Volleyball, a lawn chair, a cold beverage in one hand and catching some kitties all at the same time? Hmmm, well Bro, you let me know when you secure the bikini Volleyball teams. I'll be up there either way.

I wonder who will catch the biggest sheep head during this event? or the most sheep head for that matter. It's too bad it's still March. 3 months to go. That's going to be a long wait.

It sounds like a deal Dennis.. Flashman is always looking for a reason to get me down there.

If its a boat and it floats... fish on..

This is starting to sound like an awesome weekend... lets just hope the fish gods are with us and the weather cooperates.

Well Wiskers,
This might be one that I have to attend also. Was born and raised in Crookston and I have never ever fished the river. Spent all my time out on Maple, Union, or Sarah. My brother fishes the river quite a bit and I think you might know who he is. Anyway, I'm transplanted down into the cities now but still make it up there quite a bit, both summer & winter. Since its still a ways away, we'll have to see how the timing works out. We could probably dump our 14' Lund w/ the 9.9 Johnson into the river too. Its not a RP but you can fish out of it wink.gif

I definately want to make it up there more this year, I'll have to see how catfish league turns out. There's just so many places to fish and so little time.

I think I'm supposed to have a fishing league the 9th of July...I guess I'll have to skip that one. I hope we end up with decent weather, I guess I've fished in the rain before so I could do it again. Anyway I can hardly wait... I'm thinking I may need to do some prefishing prior to the event.

Ok here goes..

I have a buddy that is a DJ and the Northland Inn will let me use the main banquet room for a bash on Friday night the 9th, and if we get enough fellas that are staying at the Inn she will also give us the hospitaltity room for Sat. night with a bar.

So the big Q. is if enough FMers are going to make it up here I will set it up so we can get great rates for rooms at the Northland Inn, with Restraunt, bar and pool..Dance Fri night and some good beverages then we can fish Sat.

With or with out boats this will be a great weekend of fishing....

I need to get an idea on how many fellas are going to be here for sure on Fri.. Heck we can fish Fri and Sat.. Just let me know what you all think.

Rick>>>>>>>>>>

Let me know if we can get some items like we did on the Shue this winter..I will work on some local stuff also.

Got fingers crossed for good weather that day..

PASS THE WORD............................

Awesome.. The river just went up 2 feet since yesterday with the rain.. so with any hope that we keep getting rain this summer we can still use the river with boats in July..

I really need to know who is all going to be here for sure as soon as you can tell me so I can make plans... IF your going to be here say so for sure in here and I will take note..

Thanks and see you all on the water..

2 days and counting. I've got the rods ready, although I'll probably take them down to the MN river tonight to see if I can't get a big flatty tonight. Can't wait to get up there.

      Del, No I did not troll the spinners and Raps at the same time. I kept switching rigs just to see what would work. I used a 1-1/2 oz. bell sinker on the 3-way rigs and a 2 oz. bottom bouncer with the spinners. Cliff
    • Bigfatbert
      Got 8 nice keeps today in 26 to 36 feet of water in Big Bay from 8:30- almost noon , plus one throw back dink . Six keeps on jig n tiny shiner , and two keeps on jig and small leeches. 1/8 oz jigs . The small shiners were trapped by us .. I pretty much fish a jig all summer long . Although I do realize other methods do have there times out there, I just like jigs , and usually always manage fish on them with either a leech , crawler piece , or a minnow ..

      Mother Nature sure has had it in for you the past week, she's making you hone your fish catching skills for sure. Good luck the remainder of your stay Jeff.
    • delcecchi
      You didn't troll them at the same time, right?   How much weight were you using?  
    • delcecchi
      The rusties hadn't gotten to wakemup or Norwegian bays yet, but they are through oak narrows and on the march, from what the DNR said last summer.   I've got my trap waiting. I haven't seen anyone have much success fishing walleye on merry go round for years (and that includes me).   It is like the reef bite pretty much vanished some years back.    But who knows, it could come back if we get a couple good year classes of smaller fish.    The area around the little island (two little islands) where the osprey nest was, to the east of goodwill island, used to be good also but hasn't done much last few years.   Maybe this is the year...
    • Parmer
      It may or may not. Everything i have read is the initial surge from starting it up is close to 2600 watts. And after that it runs at 1600.
    • Borch
      I never have.  Waded in when the kids were swimming.  Nice sunfish and I hear a good bass lake.  A person could portage a boat in there if it weren't too heavy.  I've never stayed there but can see people down at the beach when I fish there.
    • Gone Out Fishin
      On Island lake, I typically had luck fishing smallies near Rice Lake Road. Then the chain of islands east of the bridge has a good reef studded with boulders, moderate side rocks, and timber. Depending on the wind those islands can be good for bass or walleye. Use to use creature baits and crawdads to fish thoroughly.   Gone Out Fishin

      It’s not totally remote but I found an app for my phone called “all stays” and it has filter settings and you can find small camp sites where your not surrounded by 30’ rigs. So you don’t feel like your camping on a sidewalk in Chicago.  I found the county park ones are nice without driving 4+ hours away. 
    • Getanet
      Thanks Borch - Star Island looks really interesting and Cass is a lake I've always meant to get to, but never have. Have you ever fished Windigo?  I'm assuming the only way to do it would be to fish from shore or carry in a canoe or kayak.  Sure would be interesting to fish on a lake within a lake.
