Have an open Seat or looking for an open seat.

I've got a pass from the wife to go out on Sunday morning. I had someone heading out but had to cancel because he had a baby and has family coming to town. I'm looking for someone to head out. We can either use my boat or yours. Doesn't matter either way to me, just haven't fished in a couple of weeks.

I like to head out around 6 AM when the gates at the Bluffs opens. But I'm open to anytime.

"O pick me" pick me! Just kidding, hopefully I'll see you out there looks like I may be flying solo both mornings, sunday morning is still up in the air because I will be going to a game dinner at assembly church in Willmar saturday night, Steve Chapman is the speaker and I havn't see him since we were bow hunting together in Ohio, I plan on driving back that night so I can be on the river by 6am sunday.

I am going out Sunday, most likely alone, could use another hand, makes launching the boat that much easier. If my fishing partner does make it, he is blind, so I still have to do all of the work myself. I live in Andover, and my ? partner lives in Richfield, so most of the metro is open for pick up. I have a bucket of fat heads and a bucket of red tails. I will be launching out of the bluffs, probably about 6:30-7:00 am. My boat is big enough to fish 3 out of. This is kinda funny, I was thinking that I should post about my open seat for Sunday..........Creepy grin.gif

Let me know.

Great to see you guys all getting your ducks lined up. Maybe we should get an open seats pinned to the top like the Metro Lakes Forum? Not much season left this year, might be nice for next year. I know I often have an open seat. LB

sparkyaber, thanks for picking me up and having me fish with you. Was a good time and that boat is quite a ride. We didn't get anything, but it was a good time. I like to meet new folks off of here. Hope to do it again sometime.

It was almost a great time (at least one fish would be a step in that direction) grin.gif It was great to meet you, sorry my boat is cursed. I think I will try it again on Friday, and maybe Sunday, weather permiting.

Get a hold of me if you want and are heading out Sunday. I think I would be able to go Saturday, but Sunday would be some convincing to the wife.

      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.
