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

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.

      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck

      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.  
    • ozzie
      so just curious how is the water situation in the area?  the document didn't open and I don't get up in the area as often as I would like but I have heard of quite a few storms roll through the area.  I know the sentiment earlier this year was it was gonna take a lot to get things going in the right direction, so has that started to happen or still way below normal?  Thanks
