Anyone know if Morton pond is open? If it is open, is now a good time to try fish it for trout? I've never fished it, but the Red isn't ready to be had and most of the lakes are unfishable to the east of Fargo.
If it's ready to fish, how do people typically catch trout in there this time of year?
Thanks

Word is it was open last weekend. I should be going tomorrow. Ill be fishing in the northwest corner if i beat everyone there. Caught all kinds of rainbows last year at this time using anything from a plain ol' nightcrawler under bobber to marshmallows to a Mepps #2 inline spinner.

AH, ya it has been open (ice free) for several weeks.

Try fishing the cattails, close to the weeds. Spinners (Meps), float slip rigs (minnows), and tiny Rapala's work very well.

Good fishing!

Thanks for the info fellas. If I were to go there on Sun. would I expect to find things packed elbow to elbow? I won't bother making the drive if it's going to be really busy.

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂

      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.

      Gulp crawler.  In the spot the walleyes were going in there was a pile of 3-5" perch that tore up the real crawlers.   Gulp crawlers took care of the issue and the eyes liked them too.
