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...

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.
    • mrpike1973
      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir

      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,
    • Tom Sawyer
      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys
    • Wanderer
      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.
    • Sculpin
      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
