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"

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.
    • h8go4s
      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
