We've got a good mix of Pro Staff who will be around for the weekend, so this should be interesting and fun. Whoever thought walleyes could bring a diverse group of people together. grin.gif

Big Thanks to Paul & Appledoorn's for organizing this little Get-Together! It will be a fun and informational time!

Man that is a great deal and I would love to take you up on that. My wife and I have adoption classes for 8 hours those two days so I won't be able to make it up. I hope you have this again sometime.

I can't wait for this one to come. After spending time at Appeldoorns this winter I can't wait to get back up there. Even if the weather is bad we'll be in first class accomodations.

My buddy and I are going to try to make the trip. I have had some of my best fishing experiences on ML in early October. If my buddy buys the boat he is looking at, we will be up there, mine just doesn't quite cut it out past the opening to Isle Bay in the October wind and waves. How many rooms do you guys have available for the weekend?

polarsusd81,

If there are a couple guys with open seats, I would love to come up and meet some of the other members and tag along. Maybe we should start an open seat roll call for the get together and there might be others interested as well. I really love fishing the big lake in October but I just know my boat (14' Lund with a 15 horse) wont cut it out there.

If you have an open seat, make a reply.

If you are looking for an open seat, do the same.

Fellas, opportunity only knocks so many times, and this is trophy time on the big pond!!!!!! Plus, you get a chance to sit around a bon fire and pick on your friendly neighborhood FM pro-staff to boot!!! Call Paul at Appledorns and sign up for this.

I have a 16' Starcraft with a 70 HP Johnson. It's far from the most comfortable ride, but it's a boat and it floats. I'll make room for one more guy in my boat.

I just sent an email to Paul confirming my wife and I are joining in.

I've fished the fall night bite on the west side for at least 8 years, but I've never fished the East side, day or night. I'll need tips on where to go. I have a handheld GPS (iFinder Expedition) with a navionics premium chip, so I should be able to avoid the rocks....

My wife is very unlikely to fish at night (unless its calm and warn, and then not too late), so I'll either have an open seat or look to ride with someone else.

I'm looking forward to seeing Paul and Borch again (its been a few years), and meeting the rest of you!

Fischer's is usually good in Fall. I can make a few calls and find out what's going on.

I may be in the same situation as far as night fishing. I'm not sure if my wife will go out either.

      Hi guys!  I used to be on this site long ago (participating mostly in the Mille Lacs forum), and the system wouldn't recognize my email.  So I created a new user name.   I'm planning to spend May and June in Ely.  My project is to autochart and create maps of a few small lakes I like off the Echo Trail, which I'll do via my Helix I have mounted on my bright orange fishing kayak.   I don't need any advice, as I pretty much know the area and what works to catch fish.  I'm just looking to possibly connect with other Ely anglers while I'm up there.  I'm tentatively planning on starting next week, assuming the "wintery mix" and wind in the forecast abates.  I'll be paddling around a bunch of different small lakes, going back and forth and back and forth, listening to either WELY or WEVE on my radio.  So if you see me, stop by and say hey.

      First off, welcome to the site. The Red River page gets kind of quiet but if you look back at previous posts there's a lot of good info. I've never fished much for cats but when I have I have always used cut up goldeye. I've also heard frogs are good but I have no first hand experience with that.    1- I feel that the fishery in Fargo is excellent and overlooked by a lot of people. The biggest eyes that I've caught have been on the river.  2,3- I normally use a chartreuse twister tail on the river with a jig head. The main reason for the color choice is because that is what I have an abundance of. I've caught them on white and yellow also. I don't use live bait at all unless the kids are along. They're not really able to do much pitch and retrieve yet and the minnows give them a little better chance I feel.  4- the only thing I've used is cut bait so I'd recommend finding some gold eyes or some suckers and chunk them up for bait.  5- last time I looked the ND NR license was something like $35.    My biggest tip for the river and pitching jigs would be that if you aren't getting snagged once in a while your jig is too light. Hung up too often and you are too heavy. I'm normally in the 1/8-1/4 ounce range. I have also caught a bunch of fish pitching cranks. I wasn't a believer until I watched Ed Carlson fish next to me and reel in fish while I kept on pitching my jig and not getting anything. Try something that's got a nice wide wobble. And if you are going to toss anything into the river be sure to remember that anything thats tied onto that line may not come back. I have donated lots of tackle to the old river gods over the years but I have also been rewarded with a lot of fish and some real dandies. These river fish have a lot of fight in them.     Remember that if you're keeping any walleyes or sauger on the red is that the limit is less than the MN and ND bag limit. I have seen more than one person ticketed at the north dam with their stringer of 4 eyes.

      Hit the secret beach on the sippi for a couple hours today with some crawlers. wind was pretty crazy. smally bit first then a sucker. then caught 4 eyes and decided to leave. a young guy came down while I was fishing and was casting a spinnerbait and I asked him what he was after. he said bass so I let him know that it is illegal to target them and eyes till next month and that the game warden watches people in the area quite often. He said he had no idea he could not fish for them, thanked me and said he wont cast anymore. nice young guy. I bet he will be down again with some crawlers.
