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

      The shallower lakes are froze over and the deep ones are getting close.

      I need to hit Linwood up as that is a lake I fished so much with my grandpa. Used to get lots of keeper gills and nice crappies and big pike out of there.

      Lakes around Princeton are froze over or close. Lori lake had the most open water and lots of ducks. Silver lake capped over and stanchfield south and north mist froze over.

      I saw enough ice on smaller lakes in the Crosslake area to know they are getting closer and colder to icing over!

      On the main basin... For those fishing the lake, fishing has been good.  Most bays and harbors locked up with ice this past week, which has put a halt to the open water fishing.  At last report, there are good numbers of walleyes and saugers staged in traditional early ice locations across Pine Island and the entire south shore.  With fish location, numbers and fall success, LOW is primed for good early ice fishing. On the Rainy River... The Rainy River is still loaded with walleyes.  Some anglers made it out this week but single digits locked up any water not moving and it is pretty much done.  Anglers that got out had big numbers of walleyes to reward them, similar to previous week.  Up at the NW Angle... Ice is formed in back bays, harbors, on the angle inlet, from Young's Bay to Flag Island and across most of Flag Island flats.  Larger stretches of water or current areas still open.  Ice fishing will be here soon, but not yet.  Stay on staked resort ice trails when ice fishing begins.  Safety first.

      I am a maki mino guy the 1 inch ones for gills and crappies. The xl mino is great for big crappies perch and eyes. I have used many of the maki plastics but I tend to have the best luck with white with red flakes mino. The poli was good as well.
