Fargo Boys, where you at???

Recommended Posts

ivegottabite

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 might also try getting there. thats the weekend spear chucking closes so if i dont get a chance to get back north that will dictate!

      I use a fish oil that comes in a pump bottle from Menards or FF. This stuff makes a huge difference for my dog. It calls for one tablespoon or 1 pump per 10 lbs so my pup gets 7 or 8 pumps on his kibble.  i also try to run the poor mans humidifier (boiling pot on the stove) on the really cold days. It has been extra cold and dry so far this year though.

      Sounds like fishing has been good, that's always a great thing to hear.  Is there much snow on the lake away from the roads or pretty much impassable?  I can't believe no one has asked if we need an extension yet...a remembered frequent post back from the old days. ha ha.

      It’s been over a week since I was out there last marked a ton of fish but but was really slow. Any improvement in the bite?

       Flooded,  inlet valve is not seating from being warn,  debris in the valve, or improper metering lever height. The later is what I would suspect since you've already had the carb apart.  The meter lever is the link from metering gasket to the inlet valve. This controls the flow of fuel.  That adjustment is normally level with the floor of the carb body.   An incorrect setting will allow fuel to freely flow into the carb with engine off. Or it can starve for fuel not allowing enough fuel into the carb.

      The plan  this morning has again changed from plan a to plan b as yesterday afternoon.  The red  baron broke her front drive shaft, taking out the transmission pan to boot. Darn the luck! I may of heard it clunking if I had the exhaust fixed. Hindsight  I try and always look at these things as they are ment to happen for a reason and its part of the business.
       Sunday night after the Vikings game when I headed back on the lake, mother nature has pretty much taken out my 1/2 mile or more side road to the houses. When I was visited Dan and mel Robbie was on the phone with there friends that were on the way up and they were going to go meet them to bring them out in a car? So funny as they had no clue the road/trail was completely drifted in?  I had to plow a new trail to get the to Buddy Hillmen's Highway which was not drifted in. When I got back to old Minnesota I was standing there visiting nad look at the rattle wheel . For some reason they did not have it down so I said, Hey I'm fishing this one and put a minnow Tail hooked on this huge big pink banana looking jig. With in 3 minutes I had the big one of the day 18 1/2. Last night Robbie beat it out with a dandy just under 20.
       Last night the hammer and I went to check on snowbear Joshes customers so we took his truck out there, wow what a treat to have good heat in a truck. I'm so use to being in a cold truck I was baking in there. The family he has in his grand ice castle are having a grand time on a grand lake. Scott and Jen were playing a  game with the kids. Olivia and Conner. I took a pic of the game as it looked like a fun game for our grand kids. Grama Joe was worn out from all the fish they had caught I think. Grandpa Mike was watching all the lines. really nice family.
       joshes other customers called at the bewitching hour to see what the slot size was so they must of started to get some action. I'll swing in and check on them this morning.
       Jonny boy spent Monday night in florida and got his 4, crazy any other year and the house would of been burned out after 3 days. He was going to sleep in montana last night so it will be interesting to see how he does as there have been  at least 20 fish caught out of that house in two nights. The guys were also doing real good in north Carolina and that little 2 man sleeper seems to have some good ju ju when it come to catching fish. Phil sure built a cozy  house.
       Hoping to have all our parts by some time Friday to put the red baron back on the ice, It sure is nice having Jonny boy be able to help as I can not work like that anymore. Barny from Kellier is going to braise up the pan as its a specialdeep pan due to it being a fire rescure truck before it became a lake truck.
      The last thing is last nights sunset was spectacular, it just went on and on from a gorgeous pink, in to a dark orange glow. I got a couple pics I posted on our facebook page Cookies on upper red lake.

      He guys, just wanted to share a video of my kids fishing for crappie and sunfish. Be awesome outdoors!  
    • leech~~
      Thanks, for the info.  I'll just look at the Steelhead and Looper on my wall to refresh my memory!
    • oilandwater
      Have heard of very few.  An occasional rainbow (looper and steelhead, make sure to learn the difference) mixed in with the catch in Two Harbors, along with lake trout near the bottom on the right day.  I've seen a few cruising under the ice in McQuade, but pretty slow there.  Rainbow action will pick up as spring progresses.
