Anyone been out in the Fargo area lately? What's the word? I'm planning on getting out later this week so I'll give my report then. In the mean time, what do people have to offer?

Looks to be a go at all the boat ramps in the Wahpeton & Fargo Moorhead area parks as of yesterday 05/24/01.

It may be a very wise idea to take it cool tell you see what new hazards have popped up on the Red. This year a lot of stuff has moved around on the river, sand bars, deadheads, and fall away tree's.

One constant on rivers is change, always a new structure to fish, ya Gota love it!

Fishing has been improving all up and down the Red and it's tributaries. We should see exceptional channel cat fishing in the weeks to come prior to there spawn. Cutbait's and paste baits seem to be the ticket on slip rigs.

Walleye fishing has been spotty but improving in the twilight hours. Crankbaits have been producing more walleye in recent nights with jigs the norm during the daylight hours. Jigs worked tight to structure and flooded grassy shoreline areas tipped with a minnow or leach can be very productive as are floating jigheags.

Have a fun and safe holiday weekend and drive and boat safely, save the party for the campfire and not on the road or waterways of the region.

Good fishing!

Hi Scoot and all.

I fished the walk bridge Memorial park area and caught a 5 lb channel. I also had a run and broke my line. I fish very heavy gear and not too often that happens.

I was at the North dam and were a bunch of people on the Fgo. side. One guy and his son on the Mhd. side. Just too high for now there. The Fgo side is fishable but the river is realy fast.

Down here I tried crawlers for goldeye for bait but nothing. I caught the cat on chicken liver.

Like Ed says plugs and jigs mebe as hard to hold the bottom without heavy sinkers. 3 0zs wouldn't hold in the channel.

Mebe tonight if not too muddy. Would like to catch some cats before they spawn. That rain spell made it pretty muddy. Didn't raise the river tho.

Good fishing to all!

      That's amazing, you have the same Avatar name as a guy who has been selling the same box on here since Sept. Did he give you a better deal then $80 bucks? 🤔

      I just purchased this from bold north outdoors,  now i have everything running off of my battery box.  Its pretty sweet.  I found them on facebook, many people make them, but after the cost of purchasing everything it would cost more then what this company is selling them for

      For portable power on the go, use a Bold North Outdoor battery box, solar panel, and a lithium battery.  You can hook up external 12v lights to the the terminal posts or a usb led light to the usb port.  Charge your electronics, and use the flash lights on the front of the box.   Many uses for this product just named a few, added a couple pictures of what I have inside of my Portable Battery Box. You can check them out on fb or just go to their website.  www.boldnorthoutdoors.com

      Back when I had to go to the barn to get a feed bucket to put my fishing gear in (which it all fit in one bucket), I could catch all kinds of nice fish with nothing more than a homemade rattle reel and a cheap jiggle stick.  As technology and equipment got better, my ability to catch fish went in the toilet.

      @Northlander   You still making rods?     mrpike, Steve makes some great specialized rods for reasonable prices.

      Striker Attack gloves look to be worth a try!  Just saw them at FF tonight - $45 if I remember correctly.   Seemed to be just the ticket; waterproof, breathable, insulated but not too much that you can’t operate.  I usually wear a large but I think an XL would be the right choice for me in that glove.   Really thought about giving them a go.  Still might!

      Thanks guys. Driving on lakes in that area with trucks sounds crazy! Wonder what goes through some people's minds.

      I just broke my last HT blues rod and cant find them locally. I just got a 13 Snitch and a 27" Ul tickle stick how do you all like these? I fish mostly sunfish these should handle the smaller tungsten jigs correct? Anything better out there I just cant justify 100 bucks on a rod I usually start with 3 rods and down to 1 by the end of the year yep I'm a klutz. The HT blues were great but just no back bone and annoying no hook holder cant expect much for 9 bucks but they sure worked good.
