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.

It's a very short walk. Mebe 1/2 a block.

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!

      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.

      My wife is in total agreement with yours. I love the quiet and remoteness, my wife hates the ice travel!

      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.

      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.
