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

      When you rubbed your hand on the ducer before, did you notice a thin layer of ice on it?  I’m guessing No, with how you described the situation, but that can happen with a ducer that’s below freezing when you dunk it in the water.  It ruins sensitivity.     You’re open ice fishing, yes?  Not in the warmth of a house?  Like the others mentioned, could just be your graph doesn’t like the cold.  And it’s always better to have the depth range locked in than on auto.   Good luck Bob.

      Do you have a link to an article or regulation that shows the changes?
    • Wanderer
      Yeah, I think we’ve had enough.  The silver lining for me is I DONT plan on fishing this weekend.  But I do have to ready my sled for next weekend in ON.  I’m hoping the snow isn’t as bad up there.  Strange to think it’s a possibility but yeah, that’s how much we have in MN.   I kept my face plastered to the plane window going down to Denver on Monday.  The snow line peters out around the NE/CO border.  The only people not complaining about snow and cold at home were from CA!   I thought there was a noticeable lack of fishouses out on our MN lakes too.  I hope to get a good view of Mille Lacs when we come into Brainerd.  It was amazing how small the lake looked on the way out! 😄

      so anyone know whats up with snowfighter???????? he hasnt posted in a long long time?????? hope all is well with him. my parents bought the cabin from his dad!!!!!!
    • Dusty
      good news, I heard earlier that it was under consideration.
    • artjaco
      Looking at the latest images, the lake looks pretty iced over... are there any areas of thin ice / open water to be found? Not looking to fish, need to test some safety gear with a group. Any river mouths open or areas between Duluth and Tettegouche?
    • Bigfatbert
      Yup !!   Also note the new one over change to 26”... it’s currently 28” 18”-26 must be immediately released , and one walleye over 26” may be included daily and possession. Kab , Namakan, Sand Point , Crane . These changes start on the 2019 opener .

      So after the 8” of snow the other day the lakes are a huge mess. I was out for a snowmobile ride yesterday and went to a lake not to far from home. I like to ride out there a couple times a week. So I made a loop around the lake and the snow was about knee deep but had no issues. I was just about ready to head home and checked out an area I like to fish. Well.... I jumped a plowed road bank and sink in about 1 foot of water and slush. I pinned my sled and barley crawled along about 50 years to dry snow. So my weekend plans of fishing are done. This was a smaller lake so I’m sure all lakes are impassable. I have what I think id a good ice fishing sled. A Polaris 600 with a 136” track never had an issue before but with all the snow and slush now there’s no way I’ll be able to fish. The snowmobile trails haven’t beeen grommed after the last snow and I’m getting sick of riding the ditches. Anyone else annoyed with all this snow now? Thanks Mother Nature I now have nothing to do this weekend! 😥

      Way to let "Quasimoto" go and perpetuate his/her goofy genes...  If I catch a bunch of funny-looking, humpy 13.5 inchers in the future, I'm blaming you! 😁  (...as opposed to the scrawny 9 inchers I'm lucky to catch...) Poor thing looks like it's gonna get stuck in the ice-hole!

      I usually keep my sonar unit in the house because I put it on the charger every time I get home. Just for fun, the next time it does it, I might try just warming up the transducer and sending it back down the hole to see what happens. Thanks.
