At the moment ice on the Red North of lockport towards the big lake is ready to fish. Reports however have been coming in to suggest that water levels are exremely high (nearing high water mark!) and that anglers must take extreme care when venturing out on the ice. Current is actually "eating" ice from below..... A few big green backs were taken last weekend 32" and a 34" by Ron Gaucher and his friends --- but he's an intrepid angler. I on the other hand decided to venture west and had a superb (but bittterly cold) day on Lake Dauphin. We stopped counting eyes after 40 and we left when we ran out of big chubs.. The wind chill was at -57C which is actually colder than -62F (remember after -40C becomes colder than F). Nonetheless I expect the bite to be as good up there until after christmas.. Maybe the Red will get some attention next weekiend.... regards Dan Cat Eye Outfitter http://www.geocities.com/dkiazyk2000

Hay Dan, Wuuuzzzzup?

I have heard from other anglers in the area that the ice pack is a worry and treacherous. Sure hope we have a slow spring melt!

I have received a few other reports of SUMO PIGGY walleye near the end of the road. This gets me a bit nervous and I feel the pull north again getting strong. I will see how the weather is over the X-mass holiday, don't look good by the forecast.

Keep us posted to the ice conditions and how the bite set's up in the future in your area. We appreciate it, Thank's.

Be well and Happy Holiday's to you and yours.


(Daniel Kiazyk is a good man on the lower Red and a fine choice for a guide if anyone is looking to Canada for a outstanding cat trip.)

      Has anyone fished North Lake before? Lakefinder says there’s a navigable waterway there via Gunflint Lake. However, the map shows rapids in between Little Gunflint and Little North, with a short portage. Just wondering if I could get a boat in there.

      Have got out 3 evenings so far.  Seeing deer only one of those evenings.  4 deer Monday evening with a fawn buck and a small 1 and half old buck coming within range.   Woods and fields are changing fast.

      Good opener on the water in the Mankato area. 3 wood ducks and 2 geese. Little guy’s first opener, we left at 10:00 and he wanted to stay longer than I did!

      As many of the other dog owners told me the third hunting season is when it comes together for lots of dogs. Finn did much better today and he got to watch a veteran dog again. I am excited to keep getting finn out hunting

      We got two ducks. We should had more but it was fun shooting. I need to keep my face on my stock. I had pass on many birds as another group moved in on top of us. I had 5 woodies locked up and I drew a bead and I saw the other guys faces. No shot as i would killed them or wounded them. They knew we there but did not seem to care.

      Great job guys!! I got 8 shots off the first one was good then I missed 7 in a row. Gordie got one and well river rat got zero. It was a hoot to hunt with them.

      I have a 2018 ice castle with the GS trailer frame. Are you supposed to drill holes to let water out of the tubes or do the new GS trailers have holes in them already? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
