I really need to get a idea of who and how many are interested in the catfish get together on August 31st in Fargo.

So far I have not seen enough interest for me to set aside the day/weekend from my shedule and I may need to reconsider the event.

I have several people interested in booking that weekend for guiding if the interest is not there for the catfish get together then I guess I will book them?

The last heard this baby is still on.

Ed,
please check the FM Events Forum on this subject.

This event sounds like it's going to be way too fun!!!

Can anyone involved contact you to make all the proper arrangements for their participation and stay if necessary?

If I make it, can I stay at your place?

Hi Ed,
I know with myself I'll have at least 3 and 2 are good cooks and can bring potluck for the gathering!

I believe I can find more but am wondering where and what's the cost.

Johnson park or where? By the way Hi!

No cost Fred just a hootinnanny for catfisherman with too much time on their hands. Very loose and informal deal, just have fun and fish.

Fred with the river low we will likely need to spread out and maybe you can help guide some shore anglers to the dams in the city if need be? That would be a big help. I think my tricks at the North Dam you see me do will be a great bet for cats right now?

The bigger boats will need to start from the Convent landing by the looks of things.

We will meet up at MB Johnson Park some time before noon and head out from there. How does that sound folks?

Our other Park option is the Lindenwood Park, a better family spot with more faciltys if the weather is wet.

Share your views folks so I/we/us can get a plan up.

I am guiding today so I will check in later this evening.

Ed

Thanks Fishhead, Dark30, Bayou Bill, Sarge & his hardcore fishing gall friend for joining me on the 1st annual unofficial Red River Frog stomp’r Catfish festival.

We caught some nice cats and Fishhead caught a very nice walleye, but all had a good time.

Although I was feeling kinda punk from a medical complication everyone kept me on the right track and helped out in a big way.

Dark30 & Fishhead are my official favorite cooks, good grub boys!

Lets try to do it again next year and I will try to get a central camp site set up somewhere where we all can get around a smart fire.

Thanks for helping me celebrate my B-Day gang!

      There were a lot of ATV/SxS running around the lake but I found it quite slippery even with AWD engaged.  I did see a couple of snowmobiles crossing the lake.  There is enough snow to keep the slides lubricated, especially when the temperature is above freezing.  If your track is studded that would help traction and slide lubrication.

      It looks like it's ATV/SxS season on the lake. Snowmobile season is on temporary (or permanent) hiatus.

      Was back Tuesday-Thursday this week after I discovered that walleye season ends on Sunday, February 25th.  I thought that the season has closed the last day of February in recent years.  I see that I fished on Monday, February 28th two winters ago so lucky I didn't get busted then.   The ice was in very good shape.  I found 15-18 inches of solid ice in the areas I checked.  There was no standing water on the ice and very little snow as shown in the 3 pictures of the McKinley Park landing from Thursday afternoon.  When the temperature was below freezing, the ice was very slippery.  When it warmed up mid day it wasn't as bad.  The landing was starting to deteriorate today, but with the cold weather on Friday it should freeze over.  It may start to get bad again by Sunday when it warms up.  Full size vehicles were still driving out close to Birch Island so apparently that path is still good.   Fishing was very good for late season.  Most of my walleyes were again 9-12 inches, but I did catch a 21, 24, and 27.  I was lucky to catch my limit of 14-15 inchers today to bring home for a meal.  The walleyes preferred small rainbows, but also liked lively chubs.  I caught four fish on the same small rainbow today when I was running low on small ones.  I finally gave up on that minnow when I went 20 minutes without a bite.  I had 3 rainbows come off the hook on their own; one when I dropped it in the hole and the other two when I dropped them to the bottom.  I think that happens when you hook them in the soft part of their body.  I caught my first tulibee of the winter (15 inches) and it really stunk up the house.  I also caught a lot of perch for the first time this winter.  I only caught 1 perch the previous 14 days I fished, but I caught 11 perch in these 3 last days, including six that were 11-13 inches long.  I wish I liked to eat perch so I could have kept them.  The hardest bite I had this week was by the pictured 8 inch walleye.  This little guy grabbed that full sized minnow and pulled it quickly to to bottom of the hole.  (However the 27 inch walleye did peel off a bit of drag bringing her in).  Morning bite from 830 to 1230 was best.   If you venture out the last weekend of the season, good luck.  Be cautious of ice conditions since the sun can really melt some holes in the ice this late in the season.
