Fargo Boys, where you at???

12 posts in this topic

Just wondering where all the Fargo boys are at? I got out Saturday with the misses and we caught around a half dozen or so cats. Biggest were 2 at 9.5lbs, so nothing huge. We were using cut sucker for bait. The fish did seem to be on the finicky side, but we hooked up on a few.

Scoot, have you been out lately?

Workin' the cat addiction pretty good I see Lauren. grin.gif

We'll have to get you down to the cities one of these days and spend a couple nights hunting flatheads. Then you'll know what shaky knees and adrenaline is all about. When the clicker goes, you don't know if its a 10 pounder or if you're setting the hook into something you can't turn.

If its any consolation, the channel cat bite was really finicky Saturday night in the cities as well.

nooner-sounds like you've been hitting the same stretch as me. i have been out pretty sporadically though. might be getting out here later in the week. if you see a guy in a old red lund with a 25 johnny on the back, don't be afraid to introduce yourself.

i'm always looking for a fishing partner in the boat as well.

hanson-i would really enjoy tangling with one of those green monsters down your way. just might have to line something up, don't know if it will happen this season though crazy.gif i've been itchin to get to gf lately too, but it just hasn't worked out there either.

We were out north of moorhead friday and saturday and we found pretty finicky fish as well. We did catch some fish with one 17lber and 2 snappers. We tried sucker and goldeye which were biting pretty good. If you see my black ranger please stop for a cool one and visit.

Kermits are HOT guys. I put 3 doz in the kittys choppers on jigs in 2 hours. They stompped them hard......(It ain't easy being Green...Eh).

Kirmits outdid everything else for me on this end. No walleye on the same spots...just yet...but soon I think they will be chowing down Kirmits as well.

Now to find enough hoppers to fill them hungry mouths, that is the trick.

Thanks for the update on me, WalleyeGod. Yep, I had to go to Australia for work for a little while- pretty rough! grin.gif

I had gotten out a few times before I left- been doing good. A buddy of mine has been doing really well over the past week. Tougher bite by day and much better in the evening and night. Like Ed said, froggies have been the ticket for him too.

I haven't done well with it, but I know Ed knocks em pretty good with standup jigs and frogs this time of year (as he said). Good for both walleyes and cats. I've scraped up a few walleyes with this technique in the fall. Man, you don't know how hard a walleye can hit until they smoke a frog on a short line! Kaaboooom! Speaking of this, Ed, if you want to get out and do a little of this, give me a shout. I haven't seen or heard from you in a while...

Scoot, welcome back their Matey. I hope you didn't leave Ross down under by himself. He is the original IP man you

know. Any Roo sightings ? They have walleyes, catfish or muskie in Australia?

I'm afraid we did leave Ross Down Under. I think he gets back on Sat. I hope the trip home goes better for him than me- wow! That's one killer of a ride home. Took me a couple days to come out of my coma.

Unfortunately no walleyes, smallies, or muskies. Lots of baramundi (whatever the heck that is- but it tastes good). No roo sitings, but I saw bats as big as bald eagles (believe it or not, I'm serious on that one). Saw cookabura, crocs, koala, and a dozen other cool looking critters I have no idea what they are. Lots of fun!

The Croc Hunter had to be the big news I suspect. It rained over the holiday weekend here, which was a good thing/bad thing. Had lawn seeding to do on one hand but it was nice to get the flow going on the red some. Do you have the website for Lockport flow?

Yes, I suspect you do to? Not sure what to expect this fall up there. Not sure if I'll be there to make a difference anyway...

      I want to give an honest review of Steve and north county auto. He saw my post on here of a fisherman in need and offered his service. I looked around and could have taken my hub to get repaired at multiple places closer to me than Crystal, but decided to give another fisherman a try.    This was a perfect experience.  He was willing to meet me outside of normal business hours to accommodate my schedule. The stitch up appears totally solid (double stitched) and Steve even warranteed the repair. The price was more than fair and he's a nice guy to boot.    I'd definitely recommend this place if you're in need of canvas repair. He does a bunch of other things for the open water fisherman as well.    My apologies if this somehow violates any rules on the forum (I never looked) but my experience was a good one and wanted to pass it along.

      We did not go all the way out this weekend so I can't say for sure where 'most' were fishing.  Since you can literally go anywhere, there were no real "concentrations" of houses that I saw.  Everyone was spread out real nice except I did see quite a few houses fishing in closer to Pine, near the snowmobile trail, based on the distance (maybe a mile or mile and a half out?) I would guess they were "shallow" and not out to the basin.  Distance can be tough to judge so this is my approximation.   Some friends road sleds WAY north and were surprised that shortly after they set up a suburban came from the south and fished near them.  Like I was saying people are spread out.   Adrian's road now only goes out 11.5 vs. the 16 miles they were out a week ago.   Good Luck!

      Was on the boat Sunday got a little further past the 49 bridge. Is the 22 landing opening up at all? Anyone know how much ice is even out there? I would think we made a little.
