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.

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
