How are we all doin' down there? haven't seen much go on this site. I haven't been down for atleast a week. Last trip down was very slow but very rewarding. I caught one samll 'eye, and my buddy caught on 29.5" that he is putting on the wall. Brought it to John's Taxidermy wet, and still kicking, should be a beauty when he's done w/ his magic. Sooooooooo, whats happening down there now?

Congrats on the nice eye. I wanted to make at least 4 more runs to the river already but time has not allowed. Soon hopefully.

Maybe someone that has been there in the last week will chime in.

With all the tournaments it's probably going to be quiet on here for awhile. Hopefully after this weekend more reports will come in.

I may have to give 'er a go today or tommorrow. I can't let tourney boats discourage me. It is a blast to get abunch of stickers following you. I have a few buddies down there fishin the tourney, may have to go try and locate them. With the weather staying steady for us lately, I think it should be pretty good, won't know until I get down there. If I find time this week I will post. Does any one know what time the dailey weigh in is? May try to get there before they all come in, if that works!

      Thanks. I was only able to give it a whirl once shortly after the post, tried swim baits and tails with no luck. Yep, hear ya about the tackle sacrifice so the generic heads and rubber are the ticket. Depth, current speed, and the angle of the line are considerations when choosing jig weight but I'll use the lightest head possible. Various styles of swim baits and cranks have done well for me on the Sippi & MN in the past but haven't been smacked on the Red yet. Scheels in Moorhead is dumping the fishing stuff and had a little clearance bin where I scored a few cranks for cheap. Only lost one crank to the Red, but had a few close calls & the Rap was like $3. One thing I've learned about casting cranks in rivers is that I loose less if they're floaters and the front treble hook is customized or removed. It helps to use a braid also, when the vibration changes I stop reeling so the lure can back or float up out of the snag. Usually river fish crush a crank bait and I know it's a fish, they ain't got the luxury of suckin & spittin.
