Scoot, go to your search engine and type in TerraServer Homepage this will get you to the same place as before. Took us a while to figure it out but the free service is still there. Let me know if you don't find it, I just checked it again and worked for me. I don't know if this is what you are looking for but a nice site for maps is MapQuest Map Search. I use a CD by DeLorme called Street Atlas USA. Another free site for topo maps is TopoZone.com. Hope this helps!

I went to dig up some new info. on Terraserver.com and it looks to me like they don't offer a free service anymore- is this correct? Also, Ed, you gave me the URL for a site that had info similar to Terraserver, but it had street info. and other detailed info available on it too- do you happen to know what that web address is?
Thanks,
Scoot

Did you find what you need Scoot?

Look close at the options when you bring up a location map. Look for the photo option, if there is one for that map. It takes a bit of getting used to but once you see there methods it works.

If you have any more troubles finding the maps we talked about let me know and I will try to help if I can.

Try......><,,>

I have a question for Ed. Are the cats biting at all or are they hard to catch this time of year? I have been out and could not get a bite. Are frogs the key?

Scoot next week maybe, late in the week most likely and at night most probable. Were, not sure but will know by the time we get there, maybe?

How does that sound?

CD..Yup they want frogs for sure, night bite is best lately. Look near feeder streams and large drains from fields. Live or very fresh suckers may be a good bet too, well worth the try as you may score a piggy walleye in the process?

Stick close to shore, don't aim for the channel after dark. Mud flats near a riffle hard bottom area would be a great choice especially if there is a dam near by.

Good luck CD!

Ed,

I'm heading home on this coming Sun. I doubt that my dad could get the rod fixed the same day I give it to him, but he'll probably be able to get it back to you in a week or two (he's going to be up at LOW for the next week or two). If you want to get it to me before Sun (maybe you could give it to me at a meeting place somewhere on the Red) I'll get it to him asap.
Give me a call: 476-1850

I could hand it over to you Scoot tonight at the FMWU Red River Forum, can you make it?


This is the FMWU lead or bio for Dennis Flom and myself for tonights event in Moorhead.

RED RIVER GIANTS

Local anglers often overlook the Red and hopefully this program will shed some light on the incredible opportunities just out our backdoor. A panel of experts will shed light on the possibilities that lurk beneath the Red.

The Red River boasts some of the best fishing available in the entire country. The main attraction on the Red is catfish. People from all over the country come to wrestle with our big cats.

Walleye are also a popular fish. Every year there are pictures of anglers pulling trophy walleye out of our own back yard.

Our panel will include Guides Dennis Flom and Ed Carlson, Christine Holland of River Keepers, Lynn Schleuter from the ND Game & Fish Dept.

“There are only two kinds of fish, Catfish and bait”. This kind of summarizes the mindset of our two guiding guests.

Dennis Flom is a licensed ND Guide and has been fishing since getting bit but the bug in 1986 while living in Alaska. He found himself in the Red River Valley in 1987 where he discovered the Red River and its fish. Having fished the Red for a few years Dennis started a guiding business, Catfish Unlimited. The guiding business has been very successful and continues to grow.

Currently Dennis and his family live on the Sheyenne where it spills into the Red. On the property Dennis also has a guesthouse reserved for some of his down south cat fishing guests. Dennis’ guests get to ride in the “catmobile” which is a revamped 20ft pontoon he designed exclusively for cat fishing on the Red.

Dennis has been in local media along with the North American Fisherman and The Catfish Insider magazines. Dennis and his partner have two third place finishes in the Cats Incredible tournament in East Grand Forks. It is the largest catfishing tournament in the country. Dennis has also received an Education Award from the River Keepers Association for his efforts in teaching and spreading the word about the great potential on the Red River.

Ed Carlson-aka “Backwater Eddy” grew up near Lake Teawaken National Wildlife Refuge and enjoyed the abundant fishing and hunting in the SE North Dakota region. Ed comes from a large farm family and they regard hunting and fishing as a way of life and a tradition to cherish.

Over the past 7 years Ed has lived in Wahpeton and focused his fishing on the Red and its tributaries. Prior to this he had one walleye of trophy status over 10lbs. Within 5 years he put that benchmark to 90+ over 10lbs, all were river walleyes and most were caught at night. He stopped keeping track in “98”. His largest was a 15.05lb caught in the US region of the Red River in November of “97”. It was confirmed as In-Fisherman’s C&R winner Region one division. Ed is confident that there are much bigger in our local waters and he hopes to prove so some day.

In 1999 Ed’s cat fishing and walleye fishing came together blended with his fondness for teaching others how to river fish. With some encouragement from friends he began seriously guiding on area rivers and formed “Backwater Guiding”, a guide service that caters to the Red River and it’s tributaries. Ed is also is a licensed ND Guide.

Ed is very active on the world wide web and has had articles published on www.walleyecentral.com, www.Fishingminnesota.com, and www.fishingbuddy.com.

Ed recently moved to Horace, ND to more centrally locate his guiding business and to pursue a his college degree in chemical dependency counseling at the U of M.

Please bring a friend or a neighbor on Thursday, September 20th to the Red River Inn, Moorhead, MN. Doors open at 6:30 and the program starts at 7:00.

      I need to hit Linwood up as that is a lake I fished so much with my grandpa. Used to get lots of keeper gills and nice crappies and big pike out of there.

      Lakes around Princeton are froze over or close. Lori lake had the most open water and lots of ducks. Silver lake capped over and stanchfield south and north mist froze over.

      I saw enough ice on smaller lakes in the Crosslake area to know they are getting closer and colder to icing over!

      On the main basin... For those fishing the lake, fishing has been good.  Most bays and harbors locked up with ice this past week, which has put a halt to the open water fishing.  At last report, there are good numbers of walleyes and saugers staged in traditional early ice locations across Pine Island and the entire south shore.  With fish location, numbers and fall success, LOW is primed for good early ice fishing. On the Rainy River... The Rainy River is still loaded with walleyes.  Some anglers made it out this week but single digits locked up any water not moving and it is pretty much done.  Anglers that got out had big numbers of walleyes to reward them, similar to previous week.  Up at the NW Angle... Ice is formed in back bays, harbors, on the angle inlet, from Young's Bay to Flag Island and across most of Flag Island flats.  Larger stretches of water or current areas still open.  Ice fishing will be here soon, but not yet.  Stay on staked resort ice trails when ice fishing begins.  Safety first.

      I am a maki mino guy the 1 inch ones for gills and crappies. The xl mino is great for big crappies perch and eyes. I have used many of the maki plastics but I tend to have the best luck with white with red flakes mino. The poli was good as well.

      I bought the inferno with yellow guide wraps last year for a walleye rod.Good rod,good feel however after a month and a half of using it the top guide developed a cut in it from the line(I use 6lb suffix mono only).I emailed tucr they said bring it in and we will see what we can do.I wanted to see if they could put a different tip on it but they said they wouldnt do that and they gave me another inferno of the same model.I used it for the last month of the season and guess what? The top guide has a cut in it again.I realize these are a cheaper rod than their top of the line however I have other rods I have used for many years and payed much less for that have no cuts/slices in any of the guides.Seemed like they were trying to upsell me to a better rod with better guides.Why would i spend 55$ on a cheaper rod to find out its junk then give them double that for what they say is a better rod.They have nice rods but they lost my business 55$ for a rod that didnt last a season isnt going to get me on their bandwagon.

      Congrats! That doe is a trophy! Very nice deer and sounds like a great hunt. Cool to be able to be able to track deer on camera and then connect with them later on.
