Recommended Posts

Event 5 - Mississippi River (Anoka)

Lots of nice fish came in on this event and nobody seemed to have any problems with the shallow water and rocks. Congrats to everyone for some real nice fish and the Bald & Beautiful, Chris & Andy, and Bob-N-Stovetop for placing in the money.

Yep, it was another fine day on the water ,or should I say in the water.Besides falling in because of my partners driving ability, the day ended up pretty good.I don't know about the other teams, but we couldn't get any quality fishon any bait except senkos.

Thanks to Matt and his parents for the bbq

Congrats to the top 3!! I really felt bad having to call it a day at 1:30, but I was sicker than a dog. Guess we finished well considering.


P.S. I have all the signs and symptoms of Salmonella poisening, possibly from 2 days of messing with raw chicken livers.

A lot of hits and misses on cats, probably mostly small fish but still frustrating. Atleast we landed one (4.9 pounder), which helped a lot smile.gif Dan and his dad got into some big cats...a 7 and an 8pounder? (Dan, are those about right?) Brian managed a pike and a smallie while we fished the bridge as well.

It was nice to have some extra time to sit down and talk with some of you at my parents house for the BBQ too.

See everyone at Waconia!

Good Fishin,
Matt Johnson

Brian - sorry to hear that and I sure hope you find you don't have salmonella... I never even thought about that with chicken liver... I hope you get better soon.

Lance - grin.gif I'm still laughing about that... I'm sure Dennis/John will give you **** about that forever.

Matt - yea we had that 7.9 for our one allowed over 24" and another that had to go back that was 7.2 lbs. Catfish sure do put up a fight in that current!

"My driving ability".......

The motor was off when you went in buddy!!

When you throw a 50 pound anchor into boulders in a 10+ mph current......you better be expecting a little jolt when the rope tightens up. grin.gif

Dennis tells me that there is one more dent in the RiverPro from Lance and I's trip up river. Lance and I owe him a few for the priveledge of using that thing. What a great boat for river fishing.

Unfortunately, the only fish we weighed in from up river was that dink 14" walleye. We had a great bag of smallies. We got two fish in the first 5 minutes of the tournament off a boulder on the shoreline just barely up from the bridge. One was 18 inches and the other was probably around 14 or 15.

Lance and I were pretty frustrated after getting up river almost to the crow where we had hammered big smallies on three other occasions.......only to not be able to catch a thing except a couple of short smallies and a little walleye.

We weighed both smallies and the walleye at the break and decided to stay down river for the afternoon after smacking that rock on the way up river in the morning.

We had low expectations for the afternoon and it started SLOW for us trying to control the no-keel RiverPro with the trolling motor in the wind. But after switching to a stretch of shore that had a little less wind and some rock walls and structure, we were able to slow down the presentation and started catching some fish. We finished out our limit in about 15 or 20 minutes and started culling fish. I tried throwing faster baits for northerns to no avail. After about 2:00 we trolled a rattle trap and a deep diving crank bait and caught one legal smallie in 12 feet but he was no upgrade to the nice ones in the well already.

At 3:00 or so we went up to the bridge and threw a crawler on one rod and cut bait on the other in the hope of getting a late cat to weigh but had no luck.

Sure had fun catching the smallies though. Between Saturday and Sunday we easily boated close to 100 fish.

See Y'all on the 11th.

We didn't get any good photo's unfortunately... Too busy fishing! Here is one from prefishing though - this was bigger than any we got in the tourney, guessing it was in the 10 lb. range...

This was the best event by far for Andy and myself. We caught the smallies on senkos, cranks, and white spinner/buzz baits. Last Sunday was only my second time going any distance north of the bridge. That section is a totally different environment. The weather could have been a little warmer/less rainy (WOW! It was sure cold in the morning), but all in all I think it was a good event. The get together at Matt's afterwards was a good time. See everyone at Waconia.

So how does this work? Is it a catch-all competition? Whatever you catch can be weighed in for scoring?

    • Posting.  Cuz I can’t sleep worth a dump.  Gonna be a MEA yahoo for most the rest of the week.  I’ve heard good reports from the friends that are already out there. They took the whole week so I’m driving myself out Tuesday night.     Just getting the the back of the truck filled with dekes got me too revved up.  Gonna be hard packing anything else besides waders, layout blind, guns and shells!  Who needs food and more than one change of clothes for 5 days anyway?!
    • I was ALMOST headed to Ely as well but opted to stick to “productive” pursuits at home, figuring I probably missed the October window this year.  That only lasted a day though before I headed west.   It looked really cool though.  Quiet too I bet.
    • I have a couple LX5s and have been very happy with them.  I had to get a second one for the wheelhouse since after I set it up for the wife, I usually go out hole hopping my original one.  Then come back with fish only cuz I was using the “cheat mobile”.    With the second one I was able to let her stare at it long enough to figure it out cuz apparently my teaching skills are sub par.  She normally wanted to have the camera down all the time but come dark, it’s kinda hard to see anything.     Who knew a wheelhouse and flasher would change her from a winter hibernator to an ice fishing addict.  She wants to go EVERY weekend now.     Anyone wanna buy a wheelhouse? 😉😂   Just kidding.... but I wish she’d wanna try for lakers every once in a while.
    • Was up in Ely over the weekend, darn windy and chilly Sat night.  You make it look so warm and fuzzy with the camp setup and fire. 😊
    • I have no doubt that by now there is something on the market that is better than my FL-20 and my FL-8 but I already own them and they work for me and I am long over the days where I have to have the latest and greatest fishing equipment.    Most of these gadgets, gizmos and lures are better at catching fishermen than fish.
    • My bird places nice with vexilars and doesn't get it too bad when there is a marcum in the next hole.   Keep my FL18 as a backup/loaner, it's been bulletproof.  But I haven't looked backed since I got an ice55 bird.    
    • lol. my brother hates them also cuz they thow a robin chick out of the nest sometimes. Only a couple here, if i had too my they would meet my 17 pellet. Red squirrels get a pass. not enough here. Grays are a different story. 
    • put a new floor in over the past month and finished it off by winterized it on Saturday.
