Anyone fishing from Shore?

11 posts in this topic

Look for a spot to go kill an hour or two after work on the river, anyone fishing from shore or is the water still too high? If so, where would be a good place to start?

Chuckster,

Water levels are coming back in line now. Typical Spring spots include, but certainly aren't limited to- dams, the confluence of any two moving waters, ditches that meet the river, culverts/currented areas. If you snoop in areas like that, you'll have a decent shot at fish. There's three dams in town on the Red and you've got a shot at fish on all three of them.

Did anyone get a hold of some decent size walleyes over the weekend on any of the rivers in the FM area. I caught a few nice eater sized walleyes but I'm looking for catching a trophy hog. I saw others catch some smaller walleyes but nothing over 3 to 3.5 pounds. For me the bite was all in the span of 20 minutes and then went 3 hours of nothing. I don't get it.

I was at Devil's Lake this weekend and haven't been on the local rivers since early last week. If we have decent weather I hope to hit a few tribs and the Red this week. I'll report in when I do.

I heard White Rock off of Traverse has been hot for some big sows, right before dark.

I heard that people are getting some nice eyes at the midtown dam with some twister tails.

Anyone else hear that?

I haven't heard anything about the eyes, but my friends and I had been doing pretty well on the kittys last week before all the rain. The key was using fresh mooneye. We caught several in the 10lb range. The river is still too high as I speak to get back out there though.

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
