I am heading out in this rain to catch some cats for a fish fry. how many of you guys fish when the water levels rise rapidly because of rain. my goal is to find a run off area and catch them looking for a free meal. as of now i have vissions of large numbers of cats sitting in these areas with their mouths open waiting for my bait. any one got other ideas to fish this type of weather.

I will let you know if my vissions are true

thanks, Gregg

Well, I did venture out in the rain. I put in at the north moorhead park and fished a few snags up stream without a bite fo 2 hrs. I finnaly found a good run off/drainage/crick. you could see the silt in the water going down stream along the bank. I would say the water was 3 shades browner than the main river water. we set up and really got ito the cats. we fished for about 2.5 hrs and caght about 20 with 10 nice eaters. once they started coming into the bait it seemed to bring in more and more. What i dont know is if it was the crick, or if all the cats were just working the banks looking for food. maybe we could have fished close to the bank anywhere and done well. we did catch one that went 12 lbs. next time its cut bait instead of dip bait those biguns make the day

I cant wait to feed my MN boyz walleye(cat) at our opener fish fri, I might tell them after they eat a few helpings.

      The shallower lakes are froze over and the deep ones are getting close.

      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.
