Red Lake River cats are on the feed.

5 posts in this topic

Well in the last few days the cats are turning on very well. I have been down on the river and pulled in up to 30+ cats already in one sitting. Most average in the 5# area but some bigger ones are showing up also. The kitties eat well from about noon to 6:00 pm. After that you might as well head home. Happy fishing.

Rusty, are you finding them up shallow in the warmer water, or typical "normal" locations. If I don't go over to Grand Forks to fish this weekend, I'm gonna go pick up some crawlers and try it here in town.

Looks like it's gonna be a nice weekend to hit the river.

I was thinking of heading over to Grand Forks to do some Cat Fishing this weekend, but it all depends on how high the water is, and if I can get my boat in the water easily. But who knows, I might go to Lake of the Woods or Upper Red lake since it's opening weekend...

What are you doing this weekend? I'm probably gonna be fishing by myself, if you want to go fishing let me know.

Talk to ya later

      Nice area to get the yak out in.  One of the smallies wanted to share lunch with me.

      Fished spring park today, tried walleye early with no luck.  Switched to bass and managed to find a few in about 10 feet over weeds.  Caught most of them on a chatterbait

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.
