Rivers Edge smallie tourney question

Recommended Posts

Mark Christianson

Does anyone know who to contact about the Rivers Edge smallie tourney?
Last year we were boat number 100 signed up, and I want to make darn sure I get in this year before its too late.
I cannot remember what group sponsored that tourney, and there was no advertising that I ever saw.
I just happened to see a post out here at the last minute about it.

I better correct myself. We were boat number 65 last year then.
All I know is that we were the last entry.
Thanks Kevin.

How ya been HT?
I think it is Aug 8. Last year you could fish between the two dams and travel to Little Rock Lake.

Hey Kevin, I'm having a helluva time with the wait for Bass season. I've got every lure in my tackle box organized and all the hooks sharpened. Don't know what to do the next 2-3 months. frown.gif

I've never fished that area before, what's it like? Does it compare to the Monti area? I went above the Blanchard dam once.

Maybe I'll sign up for the tourney just to give me a reason to go up there for the day.

Last year, tourney day was the first time I had ever been on the water up there. VERY impressive bass waters.
Fishing was incredible. No idea if it is consistently that good, but wow.

Too late! The secret is out. wink.gif

What was the winning weight last year? 5 or 10 fish limit?

Ask Turner.
I think he could tell you to the 1/100,000th of an ounce what the winning weight was.

5 fish.

HT, The river above the 2nd bridge is very similar to Monti. The fish seem to be "chunky" unlike Monti where the fish seem longer and thinner. Come on up and fish it, it is a great time.

As far as the wt last year, I can't recall, but I do believe the boys from Team Beaver Tail were two hundreds of an once away from 1st.

Did everyone get their entries in? I see that they are flighting people in order that they receive payment.

I'm heading down to Bama tomorrow for some practice. The Largemouths are moving into the shallows getting ready to spawn, fishing should be awesome.

Contact Pam @ 320 393 2584, she may be the only one to answer your question.

Kevin,
How's your Monti visit going? Was that you I saw on Saturday near Monti? I've seen so many RiverPro's lately, I can't keep up.

Kevin, I met another RiverPro today. His name was Kevin, also. He said he had one of the first boats you made. Nice guy.

The fishing is starting to pick up again. The river dropped about 2 feet since Sunday. It will probably drop some more by the weekend. It looks like the water levels are going to be a repeat of last summer.

I'll probably see you out there next week.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
