Lockport Report!

2 posts in this topic

smile.gifJust returned from my annual trip to Lockport, it was cool and windy but the Red was very willing to dish out cats. This fishery never ceases to amaze me! Many many cats from a small 8 # to 18-25# This place should be considered a fishing destination, like other places in the world you just have to experience it. Most Minnesotans have a preconceived notions about catfish but boy are they wrong. Met a "chap" from England there with his family, Keith heard about this famous river all the way over there and came to fish it, he shared a seat in my boat and caught many and I learned a lot about fishing in the UK. As usual Stu's Cats on the Red and the river go hand in hand to making your trip a winner. We also had our annual fish fry of "gills" on the deck, where were you Canuck? missed you this time.

Those were dandy gills you cooked up Dave. If Canuck had been there, I wouldn't of had enough to eat

      Went to a small lake up around Mille lacs lake and found 20-28 inches of ice. The access looked like some busted it up, so eyeguy and I walked out. We caught bluegills and crappies on plastics. It was windy and cold but we got a few nice ones.

      Well, got out there this morning. Wind really made things miserable. Ice was about 12 inches. Was still in pretty good shape along the shorelines, although the top few inches were "milky". Ice was really popping and cracking the whole time. Everyone was traveling by foot (which I recommend). Tried for rainbows in the shallows, but couldn't avoid the perch, so I went deep for lakers. Marked one right off the bottom in 115 ft, but other than that, just a couple pods of smelt moved through. Pretty disappointing end to a very forgettable ice season

      Had about two hrs to kill today... so I hit one of our local lakes. Ice conditions were pretty good for walking out. Ice has hardened up a bit, still a bit chunky though. Had right around 13inches where I was. Found fish tucked right up in the bullrushes, 2-5 ft. Was able to sight fish to pick of some better ones.
