Red River Help?

4 posts in this topic

I would like some basic information on boat landings, bait shops that have catfish equipment and bait. Which boat should I bring; a 16.5 with 40 horse prop or 12 jon 5 hp? Also are there any guides that can help me get started on the red. I am willing to trade information. I fish the Mississippi down to pool 4 for Flatheads, walleyes, and saugers. Also central MN for anything that swims.

Hey Eric-

Which part of the Red River are you looking to fish? Fargo area? Grand Forks area? Drayton area? further north?

If you are looking for a guide to show you the ropes, I'd contact Rusty Miller of Wiskers Guiding Service Wiskers Guiding Service. Rusty is from my hometown and is a great guy & catfisherman. Plus he fishes out of a RiverPro jetboat which is well worth the price of admission!

How have you been doing on Flatheads this summer?

Eric, lots of info right here in the archives of this Red river forum. Some of us have been posting for years and you'll find lot's of topic's that have all the info you are seeking. Coming into my favorite time of season for the BIG Cats here soon.

Spend a bit of time browsing thru posts from the past few seasons and you'll have a good grasp of the haps, ways and means.

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
