Well I can tell you where the fish aren't. They deffinatly aint out bittn' on Cedar. My dad and I fished for 4 hours with only one sunny to show for it. It probable didn't help our cause that the cold front came threw just before we got in the water but I was expecting a few to throw in. That's why they call it fishing not catching.

Anyone else have a report for this weekend?

(Not) Good Fishing

Well, We went out on Buffalo fri. night @ 8pm til midnight and yes we found the eyes, and 11" was the biggest and no we didn't keep any. The wind was something of a challenge.

Tried to go to SCHMIDT Sat morning but I see the posts are in the ground again. I would like to know if this is a lawful access or not. Because I think i helped pay for the eyes stocked in the lake w/ my license fees! Sorry just frustrated. We ended putting some time in on pulaski. Worked really hard for rockbass, yeah!

I believe the water line can't be closer than 51 feet from the center of the road. If it is, someone needs to call the sherriff's office or contact Rick Reller at the DNR.

Good luck with that one! Perhaps we should pump some water in it from Green Mountain! smile.gif

I was also on cedar on sat.,noon to 4. My wife pulled in about a 9# carp and a 15" eye, I lost a couple that was it.I was using crawlers, she was using leeches.I really like the structure on that lake, some nice corners to fish.

Schmidt, does not have a legal public access. This came up last summer also about, if it was legal for the posts and a fence. Check DNR for stocking. It may have been used for a rearing pond?

Schmidt Lake is not stocked by the DNR and is has not been used as a rearing pond. It is stocked by the private landowner who gets a permit (most recent in 2006 (1,000 fingerlings).

There is no public access to the lake. Survey maps show that the right of way at that point is 100' (50' from the center). The landowner has the fence placed correctly on the right of way boundary and has the legal right to keep it fenced and posted preventing access across his property. Therefore, anglers are not entitled access to Schmidt Lake.

This seems to be an issue every year. Hopefully, this clears up that subject and saves some people some tickets.

Thanks for the info. I was thinking it would be a nice lake to take my 3 yr. old. it looks protected from the wind. we will find another, no big deal.

No problem for the info. I understand wanting to keep a 3 yr old busy otherwise they lose interest fast. My nieces are the same way. Good luck getting your kid hooked on fishing. We need to recruit more youngsters into the sport.

Happy Fishing!!!

From what I have heard, the schmidt boys don't pay much attention to posted signs when it's hunting season. I know for a fact that they took a deer on posted land 2 years ago. I have no problem with them posting their land, just stay off others posted land!

Fishhawk,

I agree with you. I'm just stating the legal facts about what they can do.

It sure would be nice, if we all would just obey the laws. grin.gif

happy fishing!!!

The birds must be transfering fish from buffalo to pulaski. The last week only little walleyes 10 to 12 inches. I'm going to give the smallies some sore lips this weekend.

Jim - are you saying that birds are catching walleyes out of Buffalo, carrying them to Pulaski, and letting them go?? And the fish are staying alive during this process??

Mo Gator, I'm kidding about the birds. confused.gif Just that lately, I have been small walleyes alot like what has been coming from Buffalo. May have to start keeping the snot rocket pike. (17-21) inch pike just to help thin the population. MMMMMM pickled fish, crackers, beers and a evening fire.

Less then 2 hours for smallie fishing, on Green lake.

      I have OR 18s on the front and OR16s on the back and it works just fine. I have never had a board get off which is what you want on Superior. I use a mix of Offshore and Opti Tackle boards.

      Hi guys!  I used to be on this site long ago (participating mostly in the Mille Lacs forum), and the system wouldn't recognize my email.  So I created a new user name.   I'm planning to spend May and June in Ely.  My project is to autochart and create maps of a few small lakes I like off the Echo Trail, which I'll do via my Helix I have mounted on my bright orange fishing kayak.   I don't need any advice, as I pretty much know the area and what works to catch fish.  I'm just looking to possibly connect with other Ely anglers while I'm up there.  I'm tentatively planning on starting next week, assuming the "wintery mix" and wind in the forecast abates.  I'll be paddling around a bunch of different small lakes, going back and forth and back and forth, listening to either WELY or WEVE on my radio.  So if you see me, stop by and say hey.

      First off, welcome to the site. The Red River page gets kind of quiet but if you look back at previous posts there's a lot of good info. I've never fished much for cats but when I have I have always used cut up goldeye. I've also heard frogs are good but I have no first hand experience with that.    1- I feel that the fishery in Fargo is excellent and overlooked by a lot of people. The biggest eyes that I've caught have been on the river.  2,3- I normally use a chartreuse twister tail on the river with a jig head. The main reason for the color choice is because that is what I have an abundance of. I've caught them on white and yellow also. I don't use live bait at all unless the kids are along. They're not really able to do much pitch and retrieve yet and the minnows give them a little better chance I feel.  4- the only thing I've used is cut bait so I'd recommend finding some gold eyes or some suckers and chunk them up for bait.  5- last time I looked the ND NR license was something like $35.    My biggest tip for the river and pitching jigs would be that if you aren't getting snagged once in a while your jig is too light. Hung up too often and you are too heavy. I'm normally in the 1/8-1/4 ounce range. I have also caught a bunch of fish pitching cranks. I wasn't a believer until I watched Ed Carlson fish next to me and reel in fish while I kept on pitching my jig and not getting anything. Try something that's got a nice wide wobble. And if you are going to toss anything into the river be sure to remember that anything thats tied onto that line may not come back. I have donated lots of tackle to the old river gods over the years but I have also been rewarded with a lot of fish and some real dandies. These river fish have a lot of fight in them.     Remember that if you're keeping any walleyes or sauger on the red is that the limit is less than the MN and ND bag limit. I have seen more than one person ticketed at the north dam with their stringer of 4 eyes.

      Hit the secret beach on the sippi for a couple hours today with some crawlers. wind was pretty crazy. smally bit first then a sucker. then the eyes moved in and I decided to leave. a young guy came down while I was fishing and was casting a spinnerbait and I asked him what he was after. he said bass so I let him know that it is illegal to target them and eyes till next month and that the game warden watches people in the area quite often. He said he had no idea he could not fish for them, thanked me and said he wont cast anymore. nice young guy. I bet he will be down again with some crawlers.
