Cats or Bust?

4 posts in this topic

This time of year if I go to the river and do NOT attempt to fish for cats (well, at least for the majority of the time) what should I be going after? I'm used to fishing for smallies, pike, and silvers in the croix. What should I be going after on the minnesota?

I have a 14 footer with 7.5 HP. What would be a good access to start? Upstream or downstream?

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff

      How do you fish for the cats on open water?

      Interesting point, BT.  I think our houses caught one perch this year, and I can't say that I knowingly marked one small one (except for when I was down in the bays on the south side).  I have no doubt that they are still in the lake, but I just ain't seeing any.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.
