We we're up, and the fishing was slow. 11 fish between 4 guys in 2.5 days of fishing. Ended up with one 12lb 5 oz 31 incher, anther around 30 and 11+lbs, 3 over 28, 3 in the 26 range, and 3 in the 20-23 inch range. It was a tough bite with fish being marked, but it was tough to get them to bite. Ice was good at around a foot.

Thanks for the report, Peter. Sounds like the quantity wasn't quite what you'd hoped for, but the quality was definitely there!

Got some buddies heading up the 29th. Will let you know how they do there Scoot. You plan on a trip up this winter. Would love to find someone interested in hitting the Red around here and hitting a few of my honey holes. But we need a way to get around.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!
