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!

      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!

      Good luck and many the ducks fall after you shoot!!

      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.
