Fished the South Fargo Dam today by boat. Fishing was real slow. Caught only one northeren and no walleyes. Tried casting crankbaits, vertically jigging with minnows and also tried live bait rigging with river chubs. It was a beautiful day to be out so as the old saying goes, "A bad day of fishing is still better than a good day at work!!! Bruce

Did you run up from the new landing? I have not used it yet, how is it?

Was the run a safe one or stump-thumper city?

That section is a new one for me in a boat as they just put in the new landings above and below the Mid-Town Dam.

Any info on the run would be great!

Thank's Bruce!

Hi Ed. The run from the new boat ramp to the south dam is fairly clear and deep. The average water depth was about 9 feet and there were few stumps. I took it slow as it was my first time using the new ramp but the trip up river went good but it takes a while to get to the south dam by boat. I wish the fishing would have been better but I guess that is the way it goes some days! Bruce

Oh them day's come more often then the really good one do, we just hate to talk about them days!

What did you think of the new ramp, was it deep enough in this low water period to launch without problems with the motor?

The area just above the dam must be shallow and filled with silt?

The boat ramp was great. It was easy to launch the boat without a problem with silt. It is sure great to have more ramps to launch a boat on the Red. The Riverkeepers have been doing a great job to promote activity on the Red and to get these two new ramps in Fargo. I hope that a ramp will be built north somewhere between Fargo and Grand Forks. How has fishing been lately Ed? Bruce

Great! I hope to see a ramp somewere between Hickson and Christien Dam soon, another stretch with high potential and no access!

Me, I was headed out yesterday morning but woke to find my Blazer was broke into, they damaged my ignition bad enough to make it not runnable and ripped off some gear too! Not my idea of a day off at all!

So tell I get it into the shop it is down! I am getting cught up on work at home and generally PO'd at low life crook's!

Oter then that, nice weather -AH?

Hey Eddy,

Sounds like some fools think that if they steal your fishing gear they will catch fish like the "Piggy King" himself! Not!! It's unfortunate that a few people out there don't have anything better to do with their time! Well, shake it off and get back into the Piggy pursuit!!!!!!!! Keep the rods bendin'!!! Jim W

Sorry to hear of your vehicle being vandalized Eddy. It sure is too bad that people do things like that to others. I doubt if it was a catman that did a thing like that. Hope that it works out all right for you in getting your vehicle fixed. Bruce

Life go's on!

      Unfortunately that’s the norm at just about every popular community spot on lakes/rivers. I fished the zumbro river this past opener, and filled up the back of my truck with discarded bottles and cans. While litter certainly isn’t pretty to look at, it doesn’t mean the river is polluted.

      There is a new scale introduced this year by Rapala and it is better than the other ones because of one simple change: instead of the metal hook there is a clip.  This is what they use in tournaments.  It has a locking mechanism that hooks to the lower jaw.  The hook sucks.  Always has, always will.  Sticking a metal hook up inside the gills of a fish to weigh it is a terrible idea, plus they can shake off and then smack on the floor and die.  Skip the hook, use the clip.

      Both types of minnows are working. Crawlers are still getting most of our fish in some locations. Cliff

      Guys what I was trying to say with my last post was, That I was in the wrong place, Because this is about Vermilion Lake. If you scroll to the top. Under that blue strip you can find the topic of this form It says Quote "Vermilion-Pelican Lake-Chisholm-Cook-Ely-Eveleth-Hibbing-Orr-Virginia Fishing Reports  Water Level"  That's how I know I'm in the wrong Place!    -Best of luck Fishing.

      You guys catching them on pike suckers or chubs?  Hopefully the wind dies down this afternoon.  Coming up with a big group to help me do the docks and 2 of the hoists.  I have the requisite adult beverages need to get them some fish for the frying pan.

      I've been using the "modern step" scales for about a year now. I bought them on Amazon. They have very good reviews, and the scales are very convenient and suitable for weighing anything.  Here is the link https://www.amazon.com/Professional-Accurate-Reloading-Modern-Step/dp/B01N25OC6P/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1536218450&sr=8-1&keywords=fish+scale

      The Vermillion south of MSP is spelled with two "l"s. The one in this forum only has one.

      It's always nice when you have a week to get everything nicely packed, organized and ready to go. 🙂 It's just that few hours when you get home tired and dump it all in a big dirty pile to sort out that suk! 😆   Gook Luck!

      Good luck and many the ducks fall after you shoot!!
