Backwater,

Sounds like a hostile Red right now, I know she's a fierce beast!!! and a gentle Lady, all wrapped up in one.

Traditionally what presentation was used by and what structure have the winners or high placers utilized when competing in this event.

Sounds fun,

If you're really interested.... I've posted some articles on my site that address the question, "what and where at St. Andrews locks for the big forks!". Too much for the board... http://www.geocities.com/dkiazyk2000
I put in a few....days every year on the lower Red and I have written a few articles so as to share a few of my ideas about the channel cat fishery below the locks. I hope the articles will help.

You thinking on getting in the game?

If so maybe I better keep my secrets EH?

The section in the tournament area has a dam with a lot of structure and current, a run with a lot of rock, sand bar's, hole's all over, lot's of cat type stuff to look for. Trick is were are they in that water level, it can change in a very short time too!

Last year I finished 12th in the 76 team spread working the Dam in the heavy current with my buddy's the frog clan.

Most big fish came from that area as did the numbers of big fish. BUT, if the river drop's fast time to roam and play seek and go find, deep and dirty. You need to have a plan A, B, C, & D if possable or a heap of confidence in one particular plan.

Bring the big rods as well, and the long ones to drift a float rig, you know the drill. EXL/HVY stuff no walleye tackle will hold up for very long, -ZIP-(SNAP)- Sploosh!!

Circle hooks are the best bet as it is barbless and they just work great on LARGE BAIT'S (HINT).

You should get in on this man, it's a real trip to fish!

Interesting reading Dan, nice site there guy!

Were you fishing the Cat's on the Red Classic last year, if so did we chat at the Selkirk Park?

I plan on heading up in June between guide trips on my end to play piggy tag bellow the Dam. Hope we can hook up and wear out some reels, or try like heck to.

Have you ever found and decent maps for that stretch of river, they seem to be very hard to find?

Nice site Dan!

Thanks bud! I've been really busy this year and the end of the (fishing) year, activity has been hectic.. As I fish all species my next round will be (stocked) trout in the Parkland region before the regular season re-opens May 12.

I'd love to hook up and do some cattin' but I'm pretty much booked up (had to bring on more guys to help! --- but I'll try eh.), but I noticed in your most recent posting that there's a pretty interesting meeting going on in Mid April. Very interesting and maybe part of an "elaborate" excuse to get down to make a visit and pass a few hours at Cabela's eh!

With regards to the map situation; Energy, mines and natural resources hasn't really updated the Map for the Red river since 1982 (Red river Small-craft chart #6242). It still serves as a good guide but there are some generalizations (those small rock piles and bunches of holes in a particular area are not marked). But I guess that's why we rats spend the time we do on the ol' Lady. The Canadian coast guard also puts out it's navigational buoys for the bigger lake boats every spring and they do give a good idea to the first timer when trying to get a handle on the river channel and humps/bumps. I've also found the odd hole in a hole or the rock pile on a pile just by chance and they took a few years to locate!

Keep your hooks sharp Eddy! They be chomping this spring!!!!

Is there a address were I can order a sectional map. I have a lot of GPS points saved up but it would be nice to put a updated map together with the two recourses.

E-mail the address to me if you come across it and once I get my GPS stuff matched up I will share it with you.

1000 meter 1:50:000, Universal transverse mercator (UTM) grid maps are available --- they give the best scale in my opinion ---- from Manitoba Natural resources 200 Saulteaux Crescent Murray Industrial Park Winnipeg. R3J 3W3 Tel# (204) 945-6784. Personnel will be able to give you maps for just the section that you are looking to fish etc... As I also once mentionned there is a SMALL CRAFT CHART # 6242 1:25,000 but it is devoid of the easting and northing marks normally associated with UTM projection ( however it is interesting as it gives depth readings as of 1982 --- relatively accurate to date). I hope this helps all those folks who are considering coming up for the tournament... believe me you can't go wrong fishing a tournament (for CATS!) on the lower Red.

      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!
    • monstermoose78
      Good luck and many the ducks fall after you shoot!!
    • Wanderer
      For all the stuff I thought I had at my fingertips to pack, I sure am taking all week to get it done!  At least I have all my supplies.  I just keep tinkering on this and that, not getting it bagged up!   Leaving tomorrow morning around 9 and should have the entire afternoon to scout our top areas.  We’ll land somewhere in the northern third of the state.
