I fished the a feeder creek and a couple of snag piles for a little more than an hour this evening after the gusher. It took quite a while to catch cutbait, but when we finally did we managed three cats- 12.8, 5, and 3. It was an incredible night on the water and we saw lots of ducks, beavers, deer, and turkeys. A couple beers and some good conversation with a buddy- awesome.
Looks like I won't be back on the water for a little while so I'm glad I got to enjoy tonight.
Good luck to all who get out to fish. For the rest of us who don't fish over the next week or two, we'll be thinking of you on the water and being extremely jealous!

Fished with what bait I could 6" suckers, I cut the last third off of them. Can't wait to get the hog suckers. Only caught five cats all between 22 and 24 inches. Kids were maken to much noise in the boat. Couldn't catch any cutbait since I couldn't get any worms in town. Hopeing for warmer weather, then the true hogs will begin to show up more often.

I fished the Red tonight and it was tough going. We only managed one catfish and tried about a half a dozen spots. We talked with three other boats and no one we spoke to did well yesterday. The water was surprisingly dirty- that doesn't typically bode well for us when we fish for piscatos.

We got checked by a pair of wardens on the Red tonight. I've never been checked on the water while fishing the Red. It was good to see them out there. They made a quick stop to make sure we were minding our p's and q's and then were on their merry way. They were quite polite and did a good job.
It's too early for the cats to be spawning, so I guess I'll chalk up not catching fish to the stars, the moon, bad luck... Something other than operator failure.

Scoot. I was out last night from the Convent landing and found fishing to be slow also. We fished our hotspots and had 6 rods out (three of us were in the boat) and only ended up with three cats. Water temp was 67 degrees so doubt cats are spawning but as slow as it was, I am beginning to wonder if they are spawning. It may have been that the cats could sense the cold front coming through and that gave them a case of "lockjaw". Bruce

      I’m really hoping to make it up there on Saturday. Might try a couple different spots, pending success rate.

      Also depends on if your married or not, or want to stay that way! 😄  At my buddies old place since he had an out house we would just bring water and start using it when we could get the heat up with a fire place and a few elc, heaters as to not die. Then we were good! 😉

      Hello everyone,    I know I'm new to this website, but I've been fishing for a while now. A few years ago I picked up a Black Betty 6061 for ice fishing and I bent the handle trying to put it into a Frabil hard case on an exceptionally cold day (dumb me). I wrote a few emails to 13 Fishing/called 5 times and explained the situation and they told me I would have to pay for my parts. I said that was fine because it was my fault (even though I thought the handle should be a little sturdier).   Flash forward a 2 weeks later and I have my new handle. I took the old handle off and put the new one on, but the retaining screw that holds the washer for the nut in place wouldn't fit. The new handle 13 Fishing sent to me has a screw hole tapped too small. I called 13 and they were not aware of a screw size change. I asked them to send me a screw that would fit the handle and they said okay. 2 Weeks later, no screw. I called them again and explained that I had been over a month without this reel operational and no one had sent anything. I told them that I had a fishing trip coming up in the next two days and they could either overnight the screw to me or send it to the location I was going to be fishing. They said they would send it and it didn't come before the trip, nor did it come after the trip I just came back from.    They either sent me the wrong handle that doesn't fit my old BB, or they changed the dimensions of their design. I'm just trying to get my reel operational and it seems like such an easy thing. I'm probably going to go down to the store and just grab a small screw that will fit, but it seemed too easy for 13 Fishing to send me the part. How should I deal with 13 Fishing now? Has anyone else dealt with this issue before? I really liked 13 Fishing's gear, but if this is what happens when something goes wrong, I may end up turning elsewhere for the $$.

      I always use a dead stick next to a jigging hole.  The water is clear so you can get pretty high off the bottom to bring them in and then lower it to them.  Red hook on the dead stick during the day and anything glow after dark if you want but I use pink.  I usually use fat heads or rainbow with good success.  My go to is a pink and blue rattle spoon or red.  Just off of structure during the day with a nice easy move of 15 feet or so to the top of the structure morning or night.

      Now it sounds like they’re shooting for October. Won’t be possible by fishing opener

      You have no idea how I suck at electronics!

      Depends on the year.  Typically early May.   Some years you can get away with earlier....

      You are welcome Icehawk. I want some great fishermen there to teach and pass on knowledge. I also want to showcase the friendships that can be made here.

      It would be great if he is right.   Now, if he is wrong......   Still need to stop deer farms from spreading this disease.

      GPS!  Helping my son move into a new house this Sat or that sounds like something to try. Didn't really want to spend my last weekend of Walleye season lifting craap up and down stairs! 😟  Good Luck.
