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!

      Any smallmouth reports?

      Well I went out Sunday of opening weekend. Ugh. I felt like I was hunting the Congo! So darn hot and buggy. Thank god for thermacell! I did pass on a small 3 pt. It was fun to watch him, he was making rubs on trees all over around me. I'm actually glad nothing else came out, dealing with it in that heat would have taken a lot of fun out of the process.

      i've been up on Sandpoint a number of times that late in the year. I always focused on main lake drop off. especially sand if you can find it. Walleyes, big crappies and smallmouth will all be congregated in those areas. One spot I fished dropped off into 70 feet. I usually fished 20-30 ' depths oh, I should mention. Usually we used lindy rigs with minnows. Jigs did work too. especially if you slowly drop it and feel the strike on the fall.

      Unfortunately that’s the norm at just about every popular community spot on lakes/rivers. I fished the zumbro river this past opener, and filled up the back of my truck with discarded bottles and cans. While litter certainly isn’t pretty to look at, it doesn’t mean the river is polluted.

      There is a new scale introduced this year by Rapala and it is better than the other ones because of one simple change: instead of the metal hook there is a clip.  This is what they use in tournaments.  It has a locking mechanism that hooks to the lower jaw.  The hook sucks.  Always has, always will.  Sticking a metal hook up inside the gills of a fish to weigh it is a terrible idea, plus they can shake off and then smack on the floor and die.  Skip the hook, use the clip.

      Both types of minnows are working. Crawlers are still getting most of our fish in some locations. Cliff

      Guys what I was trying to say with my last post was, That I was in the wrong place, Because this is about Vermilion Lake. If you scroll to the top. Under that blue strip you can find the topic of this form It says Quote "Vermilion-Pelican Lake-Chisholm-Cook-Ely-Eveleth-Hibbing-Orr-Virginia Fishing Reports  Water Level"  That's how I know I'm in the wrong Place!    -Best of luck Fishing.

      You guys catching them on pike suckers or chubs?  Hopefully the wind dies down this afternoon.  Coming up with a big group to help me do the docks and 2 of the hoists.  I have the requisite adult beverages need to get them some fish for the frying pan.
