Fished the Red from the Convent Landing in south Fargo last night and tonight. The water temperature is 77 and the cats are starting to bite. We have had luck using goldeye cutbait. The cats seem to be in the main channel even though the water is high and the current is fast. I would expect the catfishing to continue to improve over the next week or two. Bruce

Bruce did ya see my rig at the ramp?

I went up the Red to the Wild Rice and up into it and snooped around the day before yesterday. Found a few 5-7 lb class fish and a lot of floating logs.

I am getting faster at shanging shear pins EH!

BWE,

These fish you're catching right now- are they probably post-spawn fish? Seems like a quick spawn if they are, but then again the temp. did change pretty abruptly.

Scoot I suspect they are in waves moveing into the tribs, and out again.

I have yet to clean a cat this month so I can only say that they look sorta chubby for post spawn.

I have seen some males that also look as if they were caved up and all done with spawn and just came out to feed, darn skinny looking.

With the water high and the temp just heating up maybe they are slow to finish up?

I am not sure, but the big cats are sure hard to find yet!

      Out tonight with the kids, honeycomb ice on the top 2 inches with water over the sheet of thick ice. Exposed shorelines are soft, my dog and kids broke through while walking. Even though the shores are shot for driving I’m guessing we’ll have good walkable ice (waders) for a while...

      Haha - ya I spose!  Only we weren’t shooting paper.  Painted steel hanging targets with a spotter and spotting scope. Drive to em to paint em but no retrieval.

      Got out for a couple hours yesterday. West end of Francis again, several small sunnies but no crappies this time. Access is pretty beat up, need waterproof boots but the ice is holding up so far. Couple guys had an Argo out.

      Nice @AlwaysFishing23!   We drove by there last night and were tempted to pop a few holes but had burgers on the brain too much.   I got over half of the bottom part of the list done today and 1 part of the top list done, which was much more fun!   A friends custom 6.5 dialed in.  Started at 500 yards and finished at 1000; 7 mph cross wind.  My favorite hits were the 4 inch circle at 550; the 4”x5” plate at 700 and managing a 12 inch 3 shot group at 1000.  Man, he’s got this baby down.

      Wow the fish were on fire but little. I caught so many 4-7 inch gills and one 3 over 7 inches. Crappies were harder to come by and 5-7 inches.

      Got out fishing this morning at about 9am and was off by 2. Had a group of good buddies join and ended with 3 limits of big gills (8”-9.5”),  (limit on this lake is 10 per person per day) 2 jumbo perch, 3 decent pike, and 3 largemouth ( all pike and bass were released immediately as they are out of season). AWESOME day with a good group of buds. Sight fishing in 4-5FOW made the action even more fun😁 if you were able to get out it was a great day to be out with friends, family or the kiddos.

      We get mailboat delivery on Black Duck Island (east Frazer Bay) starting around the 1st of June through the first week of September. Other times, the Tower PO is good about holding mail. Aronson Marina runs the mailboat and could answer your question about Portage Bay.  Good luck, Dick
