Thanks Scoot.

Yup folks, that's the class of Kitty's you find when you stay and book with "Cats on the RED". If you find a better spot to catch sumo's like this, make sure to tell me. I won't hold my breath waiting to hear were though.

Ya...you know I have been in a Lund since 1977...don't ja-know...Eh.

Maybe......a new one soon...kinda like the look of the new Sport....minus the Striper deal. That is a great guide rig.

Stop in anytime Tip's.

Nice fish Ed! Looks like you guys got some nice fish up there but what else should a guy expect right? wink.gif

Sounds like Canuck has been doing well up there lately. Stu, you've been awful quiet lately.....are you too tired from catching SUMU's all day to post a report! grin.giftongue.gif

Nooner the Cork'n should be super up there about now, on the Floodway.

Stu said lots of water on the move. My best bet would be the floodway and than tight to shore down a ways on the edges of the walleye sholes.

If I can I may be headed north this weekend or part of next week?

Nooner, haven't heard from you in a longtime. I hope all is well with the new born, I'll bet she's really growing!

The red is dropping and the kitties are on the prowl. A trio from Devil's Lake landed close to a "CENTURY" in kitties yesterday. Like one of them said, "it was the single best day ever for them on the Lower Red!

Say hello to Mark!

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!

      I herd some lakes in the BWCA were still in good shape as of Monday but I'm sure that changed by now.

      Your best bet is to go some place like Cabela's or fleet farm. Look at what they got find what you like as far as price style and color and try them if there not what you like exchange them. I would definitely say boat seats are a "you get what you pay for" you buy a $40 seat it's probably going to be junk while a $100 seat will last a lot longer and be made better. Hope this helps!
