Nooner......tell Mark if he really wants to experience what a bad-@ss, nasty fish is all about, tell him that Stu says........for him to get his butt headed north, "they're really starting to chow down now"!!!

One more thing to throw at him, you can mention to him that I or my kitties are not responsible for any injuries due to over excursion from battling big kitties!

One of my guys was out "play fishing" yesterday evening and ended up landing twenty "Big" kitties! Twenty eight kitties in one spot, that's not to shabby! He fished from 6:30 til 10:00 pm! He went thru a total of four goldeye! wink.gif

We were on da Red up North here today and our group did well. We boated 40 cats, only 4 of them were not in what I would call the "Sumo" class. All came on frogs, frogs ruled the day...nada on cuts..today. That could change thursday too all cuts and no frogs, we will see.

I think I had a Nooner sighting? We said Howdy but we were ships passing on the Red. I hope to catch up to Nooner in the morning.

New frogs..new day..new batch of sumo's. we hope. smirk.gif

yo boys we were up on the mighty red the last two days. AND YES FROGS RULED. (Contact Us Please) why didn't we have any frogs mark? Ohh well live and LEARN. Ed and the boys had those Sumos corned this morning. I have never seen so many smiles on peoples faces as those in Eds and Jim's Boats. Even without frogs we ended up finding a few meat hungry kitties. Mark got his biggest ever, 29 pounder. What a beauty. Boated a couple in the 25-26 pound range also, and many in the 19-22 pound range. What a amazing fishery. Get up there ASAP. Stu thanks again for taking care of the state boys. Get up to Cats on The red and findoout for yourself. Nooner

A couple of friends from Grand Forks and Rosseau showed up this morning for a days fishing and we sent them home black and blue. We didn't get on the water until 11 AM and left at 6:30 PM with 30 being a conserverative count, all were sumos. I think only 1 was under 34" and it would have been in the high teens for weight. There were a couple in the very high 20 and pushing the 30 mark, most would have been the low to mid 20lb range. Cut bait and frogs were both working but I found cut alittle bit better. It was unreal how few guys were out catfishing, especially with the kitties on the fall feeding frenzie. Guys, U are really missing the boat if U don't give it a try.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
