Ripley hunt changes

Recommended Posts

I read online that there are some new changes to the rules of the ripley hunt. Looks like you can now get there at 530 am the day before the hunt.

There is also a 10.00 per truck fee and if the road outside the camp fills up they will let you in for 30.00 per truck additional or you will have to come back later.

That's not the way I interpret it. As it reads, it states that if you are in the waiting area before 5:00am the day before the hunt, you will get charged the $30.00.

I copied this from the rules:

3. Enter and exit Camp Ripley only through the Railroad Security Gate by the Mississippi River Bridge on Highway 115. Do not

arrive or line up outside the railroad gate until directed by traffic control officers! NEW FOR 2009: An entrance fee

of $10.00 per vehicle will be collected by the military at the railroad gate to offset traffic management, security, range

patrol, and road maintenance costs associated with the hunt. At discretion of traffic management officers, if parked vehicles

back up too much on CR76 prior to the posted arrival time, those vehicles will be forced to leave the area or enter Camp

Ripley. Those vehicles entering Camp Ripley prior to the posted arrival time will be charged a $30.00 entrance fee.Only cash or checks will be accepted, and checks must be made payable to the Camp Ripley Mess Fund. After paying

the entrance fee, each vehicle will receive a validation that must remain visible when exiting and re-entering the installation.

I would bet that there are going to be plenty of people that will pay the fee just to get in early, and get their spot.

    • Fishing a mid lake Hump that came up to 45ft. Caught most of the fish between 50-61. We did catch some on the top of the hump in the evening. 
    • How deep were the trout running?  We heard ultra deep on Crow to 30 ft.  The 30 ft number came from people actually catching them.   Thanks for the pics!  I like the fly rod smallie.
    • try the raid spray on grass at bottom. 
    • Here are some pictures from this years trip!
    • How do you keep ants off your feeders, especially hummingbird and oriole feeders? I've tried Toro and Raid sprays on the post but it seeks the birds don't like that smell either and i don't see many for a while. Has anyone else experienced that? Any good ideas?
    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
