Walleye report around Fargo???

19 posts in this topic

Sad deal that I'm looking for a walleye report around Fargo right now, but with the recent addition of a little girl to our family, my fishing opportunities are looking pretty thin this Fall. Anyone got an intel on the walleye run this Fall around the F/M area? I'd think things are looking pretty good right now...

I wish I could tell you something, but I've only been able to manage one 17 inch sauger. Ray's been having very good luck with the cats.

The bite has been on Light Pike suckers and or Frogs. Fatheads are working yet the bigger baits are doing best.

Cranks have been slow for me so far, that will change as water temps fall......I suspect.

Big eye time for sure...........please...practice wise Selective Harvest. Let them big girls go...and grow.

I'm headed North this weekend to hunt Sumo Greanbacks, looks good Eh. Can't wait to get back fishing with Stu and Crew. I feel a big replica Walleye mount bill in my future. grin.gif But...thats Kewl with me. cool.gif

Has anyone been having much luck? I am thinking of trying to get out this week sometime. Had to miss a trip up north this past weekend.

Anyone looking for a fishing partner in the evening sometime, let me know.

The moon is stiring up a bite by the looks of things. Most of the area hot spots are producing walleye. Minnows and floating jigs are consistant, jigs and cranks are popping some pigs.

I have been doing best on 4" Blk/white swim shads up tight to the banks. Bomber Long A's and Salmo Stings are producing the big girls.

Atta boy, Ed. I knew you'd come through with a report for us. Between a new baby and work I haven't been on the river to chase walleyes all Fall. Sad deal... I'd imagine you could pitch cranks all night for the next few days, huh?

      Well I ended up picking up the Cabelas zone specialist on sale for $160 plus I had a coupon in the mail for 20 off A $150 purchase
      Picked up a new chair and a power owl call ( Im pretty sure I can call better with no call than that thing) I had a 200 gift card so I walked out of there with 17.00 credit
      Not bad I say I really liked the blind I sat in them all that were set up with my chair and I grabbed a bow from the archery department. I know people will probably disagree but dare I say from what I seen I like it better than the bullpen even.
      It seems to me to be made of a good material too and I can see it lasting awhile as I will take care of it and I am not going to leave it out for days on end. We will see how it is to hunt out of soon.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

      tipupsonly it was very hard to just sit and not fish. Yeah it was very very warm up there. I'll walk out if I have to!!!! It'll be my 3rd weekend up in a row.  Love this time of year.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.

      I saw teal for the first time this morning.  I've had 8 drake mergs hanging around the house for at least a week.  Ringnecks have taken their place for about the past week.  The goldeneyes came and went pretty quick.   I heard snows last night.  Other guys reported the same this morning.  One person reported a flock of Ross' geese last night.  Too bad they don't show a hint of setting down around these parts.   Ive heard woodies but can't say I've actually seen one.  And my wood duck house appears to still be empty.  There was a No Vacancy sign on it by this time last year.   In all, I'm seeing the usual suspects but I have to say the numbers are less than last year.  I hope that's just due to there being more open water all around than last year.
