First off, thank your very much Rick Paquin
for the space on this fantastic website.
A website growing so fast it must be a real
challenge just to keep everything moving
with all the traffic.

We have some school teachers on board with
us so that will be extra pressure to try to
spell words right and put the punctuation
where it belongs (for us and them!)

Lets keep our new place busy and impress the
rest of the forums with our numbers.

Dont be afraid to post topics about other
places you may fish or let us know when you
post something of value in one of the other
forums.

Finally, if we have a forum get together
sometime we wont have far to travel.

Have at it.....

Curt Quesnell

Anybody been on the river by 8th street lately? I heard it has been really slow!

People have been picking off a few between 8th street and 3rd street bridge. It should make for an interesting fishing derby on Sunday. I wonder who will catch the 8 oz. mud puppy and walk away the champ!

Yeah, I haven't heard a good report from 8th street bridge for quite a few days. I think that area needs a break from the fishing for a while. If I was going to fish the river this weekend, I'd either head east up the Red lake, or north up the Thief.

This could be a good site to post reports for Maple, Union and Lake Sarah, seeing as they don't have their own forum. I'm heading to Maple tomorrow, so I'll post how we did this weekend.

With the warm weather there is still open water below the dam. I know of a guy that smacked some nice eyes with a rod and reel two weeks ago. I tried it but could only catch one 17 incher. I may try it tomarrow if i dont go to the L.O.W.

I think this site can be used like was suggested earlier to help fisherman with the surrounding lakes and rivers. The river in town runs a long ways. Rockroll, show yourself!

      The article "The skinny on bulls" is spot on! I am going to briefly add a couple points that may help understand this bite. First, the north end/side is better than the rest of the lake, If all other conditions are equal. Second, muddy bottom is king, and I think I can explain why and exactly what to look for. Once the edges of the lake melt away the connecting ice and the snow has melted away the ice will typically rise/float up. The pencil reeds are mentioned as being prime structure but they actually provide very little cover under the ice. What they do provide is bugs that get dislodged when the reeds are pulled up with the floating sheet of ice and the rootball pulls out of the mud. Those bugs/invertabrates then rise to the bottom of the ice, providing an easy meal for panfish. When I am fishing this pattern I drill holes all over the emergent reed patch with my 10" blade. This will provide a nice "window" and will they rarely freeze up this time of year, in fact some will probably get larger as warm surface water goes through them. Then you won't need anything but a rod to fish the next day. I will generally hop from hole to hole dropping my presentation just a foot or maybe two under the ice, give it a few shakes while watching for incoming fish and after a minute or usually less, I move to the next hole and repeat. Man, have I caught some nice fish with this pattern!! I generally leave the vexilar, portable and auger at home once holes are drilled. Things that I do bring are a rod or two with 6-8 pound test, Waxworms or gulp, a bucket and a 14'-16' 2x12 plank to get out to the walkable ice. If you haven't read the article on the home page yet, you should, since this is just an added supplement to that well timed article. Stay safe and good luck. Keeping the 8"-9" gills and 10"-12" crappie to eat and the larger ones to spread the superior genetics will result in larger fish each year. See you out there!😉🎣

      16 foot Lowe Roughneck modified V hull for sale. Bought new in 2016. Has the optional floor and casting deck installed as well as a gun box. Powered by a 25hp Mercury fourstroke on the back and a 55lb Minnkota powerdrive bow mount trolling motor. Only reason I’m looking to sell it is because I’m upgrading to a larger full time fishing boat. This boat has been used primarily fishing but has seen time both duck hunting and bowfishing. Asking $8500 or best offer. Email to [email protected] works best for starting the conversation.

      There is a crust cret jigs but the side by side was moving around well. The access is getting soft Baxter would be easier on and off. I think you come in from the west side of blue so you would be ok. The ice was around 24-30 inches
