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,
Turk

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.

      I don't see ice going out til April. Some more 50 degree temps on the way, but still getting near or below freezing most nights and an extended forecast I saw is showing highs around 30 and even some single digit lows at night for the last couple weeks March. Little if any rain too.

      Looks like there's plenty of ice still in Spring Bay! Kids snowmobile racing.
    • BWpineisland
      My wife is in total agreement with yours. I love the quiet and remoteness, my wife hates the ice travel!
    • SkunkedAgain
      There aren't a lot of cabins in the bay to begin with, a whole other bonus! For the folks on the south side of the bay, it's an access issue as well. People in general are less likely to go in the winter when you don't have road access, because now you introduce ice conditions, snow depth, darkness, cold, and other factors into the trip. While I have always enjoyed those challenges, it is much different to drive up on a Friday night and pull up to your place versus get there at 10pm, unload machines and gear, and go across the lake at night with gear in tow. I love it. My wife hates it. My daughter is in the middle.   Enjoy it up there.

      yea that ice looks like its about on its last leg!!!!

      Being we had a few hours of weather cold enough to make ice I decided to check out one of the small shallow lakes in the St Cloud area.  Ice was in surprisingly good shape this morning, had about 6-7 inches of hard ice again.   Found a pretty decent bite in 8-11 ft of water.  Crappies were riding high in the water colom while sunfish remained close to the bottom for the most part.  Best bait for me was a 3mm motoroil/chrome with a impulse mayfly. By mid afternoon we could definitely tell the ice wasn't as firm as it was in the morning. By the time we left at 4pm I had put all thoughts of returning tomorrow morning out of my mind.  At no point did I feel unsafe, we were prepared for whatever, floatation suits, ropes and ice picks at the ready😏😁.  Today was definitely my last day on the ice for the yr...next stop, spring carp/suckers😁   VID_20240229_150704553.mp4

      Just trying to make as little noise as possible once holes have been drilled.

      I take my sxs all the way down Phillips Rd. road to Cains driveway and turn around at the entrance to Laura's and her son's Brian's driveways, Brian bought Davey Crockett's old place.(I think that was his name). You see them fishing on his dock at the beginning of the narrow part of the channel heading in Black Bay. They have the only 2 driveways that are plowed during the winter down Phillips Rd. My neighbor, whom you met, used to plow his boat house road so we access the lake easier in the winter for ice fishing, but he doesn't ice fishing much anymore, so just sleds down that road. I think I know who lets you access the lake, nice of him. I'm surprised more people in Black Bay don't use their places in the winter. I'm heading up in the morning!

      I drove on I-35 over Albert Lea Lake on Jan 5. It wasn't even partially frozen, and it's like 6-8 ft average depth or something like that. Those lakes in Sourthern Minnesota didn't even get 2 months of ice this year.
