Im a student at bsu and am seeing a lot of wings flapping in the breeze. Tons of goldeneyes, mallards and even some woodies. Thats my report from the bemidji area. How are the birds looking around the rest of the state? Oh ya and like always plenty of canadians to go around, almost time for early goose laugh.gif.

      Thanks. I was only able to give it a whirl once shortly after the post, tried swim baits and tails with no luck. Yep, hear ya about the tackle sacrifice so the generic heads and rubber are the ticket. Depth, current speed, and the angle of the line are considerations when choosing jig weight but I'll use the lightest head possible. Various styles of swim baits and cranks have done well for me on the Sippi & MN in the past but haven't been smacked on the Red yet. Scheels in Moorhead is dumping the fishing stuff and had a little clearance bin where I scored a few cranks for cheap. Only lost one crank to the Red, but had a few close calls & the Rap was like $3. One thing I've learned about casting cranks in rivers is that I loose less if they're floaters and the front treble hook is customized or removed. It helps to use a braid also, when the vibration changes I stop reeling so the lure can back or float up out of the snag. Usually river fish crush a crank bait and I know it's a fish, they ain't got the luxury of suckin & spittin.
