This is a great way to spend a Saturday. I went last year well worth the money and for a very worthy cause. Great door prize's and some really good stuff for silent auction too. Hope to see many of you there. Check out the website for additional information.

Thanks Pherris!
We were very pleased with how things turned out last year. This year were hoping to do even better. I personally am stoked for the shore lunch. Hope to see lots of FM'ers there.

Why the new name?.... Anyway, it was a good time. The turnout was a little small; but the speakers were good and the lunch was good. And the people who did come were inundated with prizes. I absolutely guarantee everyone who came went home with something and many went home with stuff worth more than the price of admission. Next year you got to go. Thanks for asking. And thanks to Opie and Pherris and any other FM'rs that came!

Hate to say I told ya so but you missed a great event. I will make enough money selling stuff to my friends from the tips I got to pay for the really cool limited edition picture I won at the silent auction. And if you want to know where you will find walleye's in stocked lakes you will just have to go next year. grin.gif

I now know how to "handline" walleyes with a baitcasting set-up thanks to Perry Good. And I know where to fish walleyes on Winnie away from the crowds thanks to Terry Hagstrom. And I got dozens of other tips I'm planning on using this year. I am totally biased but this seminar is a steal compared to 'Walleye University' and other big time seminars that cost $400 to attend or more. Folks should really check this out next year.

      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish.

      Welcome TheEyesofanAngler! A ton of good bass lakes around the area.  For numbers of 2 to 4 lb bass, the eastern Todd County lakes near Burtrum and NW Morrison county are hard to beat as well.

      Good job guys!

      Have only been out a couple of times now but did get a 5.5 lb walleye my first 10 minutes out in 16 feet of water. Lots of fish in the 16-20 feet range. No jumping in the boat but catching fish on the mid lake areas. I'll be darned if I'll sit under a bridge with other boats when you can catch fish out on the lake without others boaters around.

      Any reports from Buffalo?  I would imagine that they are doing OK right out in front of the marina/beach.  Anybody?
    • DonkeyHodey
      agree with gimruis.  look to the river. Your chances of catching a 3# bass or better are exponentially better on the river.  (There's a reason SC/mississippi was chosen for the Gov's opener last year--the Mississippi around here is really a world class smallmouth fishery.)  (most river rats will tell you that you can essentially catch smallies any time of year and often as by-catch while targeting other species.)  Below the SC dam is pretty much catch and release only (all 12-20 inchers must be released) but it's quite loaded with big smallies! (and lots of good shore areas on public land)  Just be prepared to lose a few lures on snags... Frankly, If you want to stick to lakes, I think you can pretty much pick a lake in a 30 mile radius...--most produce bass in good quantity, it's just years may vary in terms of sizes.  Clearwater is good.  Consider Bass lake adjacent to it.  (...it's not just a clever name.)

      Haha!  Based on our conversation at the truck I’m going to edit that comment a teeny bit!  Cuz I know both of us had a workout.  I was still sore yesterday but it was a good sore. 😎
    • gimruis
      I like Clearwater too.  I haven't fished in in a couple years now but I used to and we caught a lot of fish out there.  The one negative was all the competition - there seemed to be a tournament almost every weekend. Another overlooked place to target smallmouth: RIVERS.  The Sauk River and the Mississippi between St Cloud and Elk River is plum full of bass and receives minimal fishing pressure (its just my opinion but rivers in general are very under fished here in MN).

      Thanks for the share Fitz! I noticed you guys had a couple of nice ones on saturdays event, i was curious how thatcame about. Congratulations on the crazy weekend!
