Same deal for me, Ray. Went out Tues and got shut out. Not often that happens around here when the fish aren't in spawn mode. It was a short trip though- had my 2 year old with and he didn't last more than 1 1/2 hours.

Hey Scoot...same deal for me and Cal. We went out of the north end of Grand Forks and got skunked! I went last week to the same spots and did very well. The only difference was we were using suckers the first time and frogs this last time?

Stinkin' fish! We get a nice pattern figured out and they can't seem to get it. Such is life as a fisherman, huh? Stick to it and it'll get better...

I've got out twice this week and it has been slower as well. Tues only got 2 but one was a dandy! My PB for the Fargo stretch(17.4lbs) and Wed before the lightning chased us off my buddy caught a 7lber.

I will be heading out this Saturday to see what happens. Maybe the cats were enjoying the break from the hot weather? grin.gif

Here's a pic of my big one for the year, so far...

Well i went out today during the cats incredile and had a good evening. We got on the river about two and fished into the early evening. We caught cats that would have made great slot fish. All seemed to be in the 5 to 7 pounds range. Figured since I'm not in the tourny I would have had about 33 pounds with not big fish. Did see a boat land one htat would have pushed 20.

Has anyone been out the last couple of days? Just wondering if it has gotten any better out there. Was thinking of giving it a try tonight, but my fishing partner has parenting duties grin.gif. Might have to find someone else.

Fishing on the Red was slow again today. A few small cats and a couple goldeyes in a couple hours of trying. Frogs were the bait of choice for us today- didn't have any sucker or goldeye to use. Tough sleddin' for me right now.

SLOW...seems to be the common theme right now, which is unfortunate. I was out Monday night and caught 2 little cats(1.5lbs) and last night the guy that was with me got around a 6lb fish, a few small ones(1-2lbs) and a 21" eye on a frog. A couple weeks ago things were looking up and now it's gone south. I have noticed the water temp is down about 5-6 degrees from 2 weeks ago also, it's at about 74-75 right now.

I am going out again Friday night to see if anything changes.

FYI- My bro fished for two hours today and did better numbers-wise (a dozen fish), but the size wasn't very impressive (biggest was around 4 lbs.)

Where can you get frogs in the FM area? Do you have to catch them or do they sell them someplace? I'll be heading out the next couple days so I hope the fishing picks up.

Thanks

Hey Joe, you can get frogs at D & H Bait just E of Dilworth or you can go catch them. Anywhere you find ankle to knee high grass near water, particularly water that isn't moving too fast, will be good for frog hunting. Golf courses can also be good.

You can also get frogs at fargo bait and tackle. The frogs cost 75 cents apiece. good luck. smile.gif

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.

      Here's my new boat.  Saw probably 30 Verados in the past 3 days on the east and and west ends.

      We had two fishing tournaments this weekend. Walleyes on Saturday and bass on Sunday. I met the bass winners today and talked to them about their walleye win Saturday. That’s right, they won both!  On Saturday, they entered the walleye tournament but just because they were on the lake to pre-fish for bass. They fished with stick baits in shallow water, looking for bass beds. As shallow as 4’. And dang if they didn’t keep catching walleyes. Big ones, including 2 over 26”. 21 lbs. in all. Apparently, they’re pretty good at finding bass, too. Big $ weekend for them!

      Ugly Saturday on Norwegian Bay. One Pike off of Windsock Island, nothing else much to speak of. Cold and windy but finished off with a beautiful Evening. There were a couple of good eyes caught near the north end, a 27" and a couple in the slots but most boats didn't see much. I saw 2 caught in front of the beach at Life of Riley in a matter of a couple minutes.  Sunday morning we met up with some friends and went out of Tower. Dragging bottom bouncers with minnows in 24-32' produced 11 keepers between the 4 of us, largest about 16" and lots of throw backs. Best luck just off of Priest Island. 4 hours of fishing with everyone except me pulling them in the boat until the last 10 minutes I put two in the livewell. I broke off with 10 minutes to go and was going to quit when everyone said "no, keep going!"  Glad I did cause I finished strong and redeemed myself. Never give up!

      Went to Franconia on Saturday. Wind was cold and miserable! With it howling straight downstream, my options were pretty limited, so we mostly trolled up and down the main channel. Caught 1 pike, 2 smallies, and 1 white bass.

      Things seem to be moving right along.  Yesterday on a small Cass county lake we found sunfish and crappies in 6ft+/- ft of water with some crappies already on beds.
