I fished yesterday on the stretch of the Red between Hendrum and Halstad. We put the boat in at the Hendrum boat ramp. (The ramp is not in good shape) We weren't able to catch any goldeye, but we had some shrimp and frozen sucker cutbait so we ended up using that. The catfishing was good (caught one that ws close to 20#). The cats seemed to prefer the shrimp over the frozen sucker cutbait. Bruce

How were you fishing for the goldeye? I've been having a bit more success lately putting my float stop a little deeper/below --or just above-- to correspond with what I'm seeing on the finder. I've also been using more terrestrials as bait and the goldeye have responded (grasshoppers, crickets-when I can catch 'em and any larger bugs). Minnow heads and of course worms have been working as well. Keep on cattin'!

I was using a piece of crawler on a small jig about 2 or 3 feet below a slip bobber. We fished eddy areas behind snags and areas of slower current on river. Someone told me that small minnows will out fish crawlers 4 to 1 but we didn't have any small minnows to try. I have had no problems this year catching goldeye on the Red here in the Fargo area this year using crawlers so thought it wouldn't be a problem catching them up a little farther up north on the river either. Thanks. Bruce

      Great job guys!! I got 8 shots off the first one was good then I missed 7 in a row. Gordie got one and well river rat got zero. It was a hoot to hunt with them.

      I have a 2018 ice castle with the GS trailer frame. Are you supposed to drill holes to let water out of the tubes or do the new GS trailers have holes in them already? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Pike very active with 6-12 feet running crank baits ... also Bass !!   Been using various crank runners some off deeper weed lines 12-15 feet.    Fun trolling and having to stop because the rod was smacked hard 😃     Cret

      Been awhile since I posted, busy summer but finally got the kayak back out on the Mississippi to chase after them fall smallies. The bite was really good and managed a new personal best at 21"! Bait of choice is my wacky worm, they never can resist! I'll be chasing these till ice is on the lakes. Best fishing is right around the corner, goodluck everyone!    Video:  https://youtu.be/PJOZITB0ol0
