Been catching the cats up here off the boat landing in Hendrum. Have done well the past few nights. A couple in the 8-10lb range and a bunch in the 4-5lb range. Cut sucker seems to realy bring em in. The landing is solid under a few inches of mud so not too bad, just dont wander too close to the water off of the landing or you will be up to your knees.

Hi Fishermen,

The No. dam is fishable. I just got back from there. I didn't bother to check out the midtown dam.

I drove down on the MHD side. No problem unless you want to get muddy.

The MHD side would be hard to fish as per the snags. The FGO side could produce as not too many snags and a deep dropoff

The guy fishing on the FGO side caught some bullheads and a catfish. Not much but it's something.

Ordie,
Where's the landing near Hendrum? I've wanted to check it out some time, but didn't know where it was.
Thanks,
Scoot

Hey Ordie,

I'd like to know also. I'm originally from Shelly and come thru there quite often. I should know but can't quite get a handle on it. Frustrating.

Mebe you know Sam Larson, She's my Aunt.Terrible when she lost her kids in that trench cave in.

Scoot, Fred,
The landing is off of CR 25. CR 25 is one block north of Nepstads gas station in Hendrum. It will be the first road after Nepstads. Turn right and cross the RR tracks and you will see the bridge. The landing is to the right of that bridge. Not much left of it after the 97 flood. I wouldnt try to put a bigger boat in there.
I have carried a smaller one down and it worked well. But hey if there hittin from shore why put in?

Fred,
yes i know Sam. Nice lady! My kids play with her grand kids that live next to where the cave in happened. I didnt live here then it did, but it hit the whole town pretty hard.

Mabey i will see you folks out there. Just look for the guy with the waders on and mud all over him and wearing a big smile, cause hes out there catching fish or having fun tryin.

Convent landing is open to use and the Mid-Town Dam landings should be right behind it, could be open by this weekend. The Moorhead side of the Mid-town dam has bee doing well for cats between the dam & the first bridge.

MBJ Park is a close third to be open by this weekend if the ramp lot is dry enough to be cleaned.

The catfishing this week has been good to very good in the Wahpeton to Fargo region of the Red. Cut baits, paste baits, or crawlers seem to be the ticket.

The current is a bit fast yet so plan on the need to have a good anchor and lots of rope to hold well if your in a heavy boat.

The cats are fat and hungry feeding up for spawn in a few weeks as the water temp hits the mid to upper 70's.

I will try to get reports on the ramps in the Fargo to Canada stretch this friday.

Good luck...
Good Cat'n...
Go Piggy!

      So Monday my buddy sees a spike and 5 pointer sparring a little bit at 150 yards in a clear-cut. Gets a good rest with 25-06, shots the 5 and it goes down like a sack of hammers. Hikes up to it, pokes it's eye and not a wiggle. Sets down empty gunand finds a log to sit on 10 feet away with his back to it and validates his tag. Turns around and the buck is gone running over a hill 100 yards away and disappears over a hill. Small spot of blood where his head was laying. Must have deflected in the brush. He said it was out cold at least 15 minutes.😫

      I will be checking a couple lakes today and I know people have been ice fishing them
    • JBMasterAngler
      As of yesterday forest lake has about 1 inch of ice, but there were still some open spots. Someone even launched their boat and went duck hunting out there.

      Last winter was not easy for me either but this winter I will be going to some other lakes that i use to fish with my grandpa. The only good bites I got on last winter were the ones the St. Cloud boys invited me on. I just reached out to get a custom ice rod from a guy near me. I am excited to see what he can do for me. I will post as often as I can and if I get on a good bite you could tag along if ya want.
