Hay Ed I really enjoy your input. Im new to fishing the Red River, Ill tell ya it can be challenging at North damn. Ive lost at least 25 bucks worth of takle there in just the last two weeks.My first day second cast a landed a 23 inch eye my biggest. It was great I admired it then released it. Havent caught one since.So Ill try your frogs. It would sure be nice to land a dude! I know there is a potential there so out I go. Say the river Its hard to recognize everyday getting as low as it is. Oh Im losing a whole lot less tackle now that I know where the snags are. Ill fish with you soon. Kirk

Thank's Kirk!

I try to pass on as much as possable and hope it is of some help to other anglers some day.

Your very smart to eye ball the river during low water periods! I take photo's of areas I know are riddled with structure, (AKA SNAGS), that way I can reference the holding areas later and read the current better. After time the skills of current reading come as a second nature, and these skills are very crucial to success in river angling.

Rivers are like Hi-Ways, learn to read the road sighs and you will find your target faster!

(The Red should be on the rise some today, look for walleye to move into pockets or backwaters closer to the dam soon! Start searching from the first major river holes nearest the dam in low light periods, then move up stream. You will find fish!)

Good Hunting Kirk!

Ed, Kirk here say Ive been doing alot of fishing lately.Lake Mary,Alexandria always catch eaters there. Lake of the woods better fishing for me in winter.Then the red caught some sauger and bass last week. A guy while I was ther caught a 9 and 10 pound eye.Damn I would sure love to hook into them. I would have released them though after snapinng a few pictures.These guys that are keeping them what are they thinking? Dumb! Oh he was using a jig head with a mister twister all white tipped with a minnow. later Ed

Good to her your on the water an into fish!

The Red is good and we have been blessed with fine weather to fish in, but soon to change I think.

I am ok with someone keeping a trohpy for the wall if that is there wish, but we know to get 12-13-14 or larger walleye. We need to release a lot of 8-10's, so maybe the word will spread if we keep the faith?

I had a incident this fall that made me think twice about sharing too many piggy tip's.

I ran into a pair of anglers with 4 walleye over 9 lb's who said my tip's were how they picked them up, but they keep all they catch, and never release large walleye. This made me a bit nervious to say the least! Maybe a bit angry too?

But most know the need to protect a fishery from over harvest that would destroy a great trophy fishery, so I keep the faith and pray others will change there thinking.

I have ate large walleye that have died or were bleeeding to badely to release, but I would take a 3 lb. fish over a 8 lb. fish in the pan any day!

Good fishing and keep in touch!

      So Monday my buddy sees a spike and 5 pointer sparring a little bit at 150 yards in a clear-cut. Gets a good rest with 25-06, shots the 5 and it goes down like a sack of hammers. Hikes up to it, pokes it's eye and not a wiggle. Sets down empty gunand finds a log to sit on 10 feet away with his back to it and validates his tag. Turns around and the buck is gone running over a hill 100 yards away and disappears over a hill. Small spot of blood where his head was laying. Must have deflected in the brush. He said it was out cold at least 15 minutes.😫

      I will be checking a couple lakes today and I know people have been ice fishing them

      As of yesterday forest lake has about 1 inch of ice, but there were still some open spots. Someone even launched their boat and went duck hunting out there.

      Last winter was not easy for me either but this winter I will be going to some other lakes that i use to fish with my grandpa. The only good bites I got on last winter were the ones the St. Cloud boys invited me on. I just reached out to get a custom ice rod from a guy near me. I am excited to see what he can do for me. I will post as often as I can and if I get on a good bite you could tag along if ya want.
