I also have a trailer at Ole's. When you take your turn off Hwy.65 you take your first left and I'm a couple of trailers in. Who knows, we probably have met before. I've had a trailer there for 7 years now. If you see a white Chevy truck with Total Tool printed on the doors, come say Hi! I'll be up there the weekend of Jun.16th.

Cool. I'm in the older brown one on the south side. 1st one you come to when approaching the resort from 65. Hopefully we'll run into each other.

Ya, I dabble around on this board! You have the blue lund. I'm Mary's son in law. I knew your mom and dad real well, but haven't met you yet. I'm the guy with the obnoxious dog. I need to chat with you............you fish as hard as I did pre-kids! You been catching any Walleye's?

bigsandyguy,

Yeh, we'll have to meet soon.

I did ok Walleye wise over the Memorial Weekend, but have not been able to spend as much time up there this year as last. How have you done?

caught some walleyes, but SMALL! I've only kept a few. I usually only fish 'em when the kids don't come along. I stick with crappies..........easier to catch for the kids.

Tried the dam at Sandy Lake Campgrounds....Used leeches and didn't catch a thing....watch a Dad and son using bobbers and minnows catch walleye's and notherns. then watched a Dad and daughter using 1/2 of crawlers catch 5 different varities of fish. Smallies, walleyes, nice sunnies, carp and suckers. Thankfully the man let me use 1/2 a crawler and I finally landed a carp!!!!! grin.gifgrin.gifBut had a good time meeting other fisherpeople enjoying the nice day.

A really nice place to shore fish.

      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 caught 4 eyes and 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.
