FM'ers fishing the Anoka and/or Rivers Edge tourney

Recommended Posts

Mark Christianson

I am just curious what FM'ers are fishing either or both of these tournies this summer.
I am in both, so I would love to meet some people to put some faces to the names.
I know Hawgtide is in both of them, so I have one guy to try and find.

I heard some time ago, that there was a tourney in Anoka again in August some time. Is there any truth in this?? I can't seem to locate info on it.

Ooops
My bad.....
I also know the famous KT will be in both as well...................
But I know who he is, and I bet he remembers my son. Good old KT autographed a crankbait for my son after his Rivers Edge victory last year. My son still has it hanging in his room with pride.

PS - Thanks again KT. My son was beside himself to have a "professional fisherman" autograph a lure for him. wink.gif
You made his day!

The Ranger was near the first island south of Dayton. Don't know if he went any further North. I guess he has Progressive Insurance.

I wish I was fishing in this tourney (or two). I could put the smallie magnet powers to the test!

Oh well, maybe next year - we've always got the smallie magnet tourney this year and we all know who will win that wink.gif.

When is the Anoka Tourney again? And where is the weigh-in station? If I remember correctly it's on a Sunday and I wanted to get up there just to check out the action. No way am I ready to actually be in the tourney, nor can I afford it at this time.

The Anoka tourney is July 10th.

I am not sure where the weigh in is yet. At the meeting a couple months ago, there was talk about having the weighin at the docks below the police station possibly.

I wondered that too. I also wonder how many RiverPro's are going to be shooting up the river ahead of me. I saw a Ranger almost all the way to Dayton last weekend! I couldn't believe someone would take a Ranger up there. I'll bet there won't be any up there in Mid July!

There is a channel to easily get into the Dayton area, even if water seems low.
Now, how far you get up into Dayton is another story.

Where were they? Passed where the power lines cross the river near the boulder field? You can sneak past that if you are careful, but if they were past the small rapids area where the river splits around a couple islands, and the main channel necks down a lot; then they were in troubled waters.

Is the river really navigable in that area? There's a lot of rocks just below the dam. I guess the water level gets deep quickly?

You can get up to the dam easily in the Rum.
They have a channel marked with buoys.

Maybe someone will wear that jacket they stole from me! wink.gif

You'll be able to recognize me by my uncommonly good looks, or my beer gut, either way. smile.gif How often do you hear those two in the same sentence?

Are we related? Could you be my long lost twin?

What are your real names? (Except Ray. Its kind of obvious)
My name is Mark. Its a little easier to ask people if they are "Mark", than to walk around and tap everyone on the shoulder and ask if they are "BLB". I think we will get some funny looks.

My real name is smalllakeba$$. You must be my long lost brother!

It's more fun when you have to ask everyone if they are "HawgTide"! That should get some interesting answers.

I'm fishing both of them! Can't wait. These are the only two money tournaments I'll fish this year. Fun times.

We (the FMers) should work out an attire system to identify each other at the Anoka dinner. I don't know, a certain hat or something, blue shirt, whatever.

Should we have a side bet, or just bragging rights to this forum?

We could hang Pop-R's from our left ears.
Or I could wear a white Hanes T-shirt with Biglakeba$$ written in one of those fatty permanent markers.

**** , I can't come up with anything logical.

I'll be fishing the Rivers Edge tourney or the St. Stephens Lions Club whatever you want to call it. It should be a lot of fun. I usually fish near Little Falls so it will be interesting fishing further south.

I will be fishing the rivers edge tourney once again this year. Second annual event for myself and my buddie. We fish the river quite a bit and fishing in a tournament atmosphere is just a cool thing to experience. We are by no means professional bass fisherman but, it all depends on the fish so maybe we will get lucky this year. GOod luck to all!

Thanks BLB.

Anyone bringing their Wife and/or Girlfriend? Or is this just for us fishermen? One could always use a designated driver for these events.

I thought the flyer stated the social hour was from 5:30 to 6:30 with dinner at 6:30.

I have to skip everything but the social hour. It's my wife's birthday. Nice timing, honey, LOL. Can someone wrap my dinner up and bring it to me on Saturday morning. smile.gif

BigLake is trying to make us miss it! More for him.

Hey BLB, I forgot to remind you that the tournament was moved to Sunday. I'll see you Sunday morning!

Ray, I'll get your portion and try to remember to save it for you. smile.gif

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      One thing I'd like to add, they live about 2 miles north of remer on hwy 6.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      We always called them wing-dings! I also learned that trick on LOW. Very tasty!! Cliff

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?
    • biff
      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
