I think I ran into Tony Olivia on Ramsey today

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if he fishes out this way. I thought I heard a couple years back that him and Kirby Puckett used to fish out this way all the time. Anyways him and his son were loading their boat up before us and we started talking. They said they come from Chanhassen all the time to fish the lake. I hate asking someone if they are this person or not. But after looking at some pictures of him in his playing days today. I'm almost positive it was him. Thought it was pretty cool to run into someone like that, that would travel that far to come out to a little lake like Ramsey.

Anyways, Lightning cut the trip a little short today, but from the fishing we did get in, I will definately be back....

Thats Sweet... A few years back i was on Deer Lake, WI and seen Puckett at his cabin. He was really cool. He came to the end of his dock and starting catching with use. I will never forget that!!!

Tony Olivia's kid plays in a band around the area. My buddies and I ran into him one night at Pov's in Andover. Tony was very nice and let us take a picture with him. This is our baseball teams website and that is him with two of my teammates: http://www.hometeamsonline.com/visit/?u=STFRANCISSAINTS&sport=baseball&t=c

I apologize for my buddies shirt, it was his bachelor party. grin.gif

Nice pic, that definately verifies that that was him out there on Saturday. Ramsey must be a pretty good lake if he travels from Chanhassen all the time to fish it.

I had the opportunity to spend 4 days with Tony about 5 years ago and I can tell you that he is one of the nicest most genuine people I have ever met. We did talk about fishing a lot, and I too have run into Kirby Puckett while fishing out in this area.

When I was in college, we played down in Fort Meyers for Spring Training. We happened to stay at the same hotel as the Twins players. At night, we'd hang out down by the pool. It was mostly guys you've never seen before--rookies, minor leaguers. But there among all the unknowns was Tony Oliva, hanging out and talking to the average Joe just like anyone else. Very nice guy.

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.

      Welcome to the forum.  Lots of good options already given.  Have some fun!

      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).
