wild rice report

12 posts in this topic

went out to the wid rice dam last night from about 5:00pm till dark and nothing, not even a bite. but this is my first year river fishing and i like to call my lack of success the learning curve. if anyone would like to contribute to my learning curve that would be great.

Ludzy, a buddy of mine did some snooping around there the other day and he found exactly what you did. He's got about 35 years of river experience, so it might not have been you. Tough to catch fish that aren't there...

Things should come into form over the next week, if we can miss significant rainfall.

As far as contibuting to your learning curve, I'd suggest you do some snooping in this forum. Use the search tool and see what you can dig up- tons of info about standard rigs, locations, etc. for Spring walleyes. By the way, the big three are jigs, slip rigs, and cranks.

yeah, i went out for the first time last night too and all we managed were some goldeyes. tried a couple different areas from shore with no luck.

it still sounds like wahpeton is the place to be.

ludzy, i haven't done much spring river fishing either so if you are looking for some company let me know. or else if you are looking for a boat to climb in let me knonw as well.

Hey, who you callin' a "Silly Nodaker"? laugh.gif I was born and raised a MN boy, but I've been a ND resident for a number of years now. Good news is that I'm now allowed to drive in the left late, 10 miles below the speed limit, with my left blinker on! grin.gif J/K!!! I love being a ND boy! Something special about MN to me still, but I feel like I have the best of both worlds here in Fargo.

Ol sane "I have heard the river runs North and according to my calcualations I live on the RIGHT side of the river." laugh.gif The wife is a born raised Nodaker when we moved I had to fight tooth and nail to stay a Minnesotan.

Hmmmm ... You play for both teams eh? Well ya can't. You need to choose the MN side and stay away from the Dark Side of the Force.

Well, I guess it is nice to have ND plates when you drive in the passing lane at the speed of traffic in the cities. You see, they don;t get mad at the No Dakkers -- they just figure it is your first time on a road with a passing lane. grin.gifgrin.gif

Now that's funny stuff right there. wink.gif

No, no- my lack of response doesn't indicate that I don't think it's funny. Just nothin' to add, 'cause I'm "guilty as charged"!

Yep. That is the first step in the 10-step process. "How to be No-Daked"

      Try Shamrock Marina or Gruben's Marina. Both are fairly close to the Trout Lake Portage. Cliff

      My Lab had ACL surgery about 4 years ago on one back leg. 6 months later had to do the other leg! She has not been the same since! Very stiff in both back legs and basically unable to hunt since the surgery. I would ask your vet about the chances of your dog having the same results and also about the chance of it needing an operation on the other leg soon after! My vet told me that the chances of the other legs ACL tearing would be very high after doing one leg. Cliff

      As long as we're talking about trout lake, can someone suggest a boat rental location for a summer trip into TL?  Would need 3 fishing boats for a 4 day trip in early june.  Thanks.   Matt

      I have not fished there, but I drive by it everyday and they have been pulling fish-houses with pickups for at least a couple week now off the East end anyways.  Like I said I haven't been out there personally, so I don't know how much ice there is, but on 2 other area lakes I had 16-17" last weekend.

      Well, I went out Friday afternoon/evening from the beach access in Glenwood.  I measured 17" of ice.  Fishing was not good.  Never even marked a fish.  Hope others had good luck, there is a ton of houses out again this year.  Someone ought to be catching them!
