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

      CigarGuy, I couldn't help but notice that the boat you're using appears to have the junk Merc fuel line that has cost boat owners a boat load of money by disintegrating the rubber liner inside and sending it downstream into your filters and carbs. The Merc is the right vintage and the line is the right (wrong) color. If you can find a speck of red or orange printing on it or if it feels soft when you squeeze it, you should cut it into pieces and toss it in the trash. If you are original owner and know 100% that non oxy 91 octane is the only type of gas ever used, maybe it will be fine. I wouldn't risk it though. Check my 'mercury fuel hose causes issues' thread on equipment and expert information forum for pics from this spring.

      Got 4 more slot fish tonight from 8 till 9:30. All between 21" and 26-1/4". had a nice one on within a minute of getting out there, but I was waiting for a boat to pass before I grabbed the net and lost it.  Sorry if it sounds like I'm bragging, I'm not, this uncharted territory for me up here 😀. Like I've said before, this lake has humbled me. This is the best wknd fishing in the 6 years we've been up here... gotta enjoy it while it lasts. Heading back to the rat race tomorrow.

      Why do I fish??!!?? It's simple. Because I NEED TO FISH!!  I mean, what else is there?? Fishing is my church. Fishing is my therapy. Fishing is my home. Fishing is my vacation. Fishing is my best friend. FISHING IS MY LIFE!! C & R IS MY FUTURE! Please let me be fishing in my final moments, or let me fish forever.

      Had a great couple of days in the middle of the lake. Plenty of 15-18”fish and too many little ones to count. Leeches mostly but fish also were active on smaller rainbows later in the day.

      Had some luck fishing walleyes in 10-20 ft in current using jigs tipped with chubs a week ago. Water was pretty cold still...upper 50s on the main lake.

      Growing up in South Dakota I learned to enjoy the fishing I got to do in the Watertown area with great grandpa and the Missouri River and Black Hills fishing with Grandpa. It's a little different than what I see here in Minnesota but the basics are the same. Seems to be more emphasis on fish size than fishery quality or maybe I was just raised different.  Either way it was always about the beauty of nature and learning a valuable skill from 2 knowledgeable individuals. Now I just try to pass those skills on to the next generation and hope they learn how to protect our resources as well as I was taught.

      Similar to eyeguy, I fished when I was young with my parents. At some points it was about trying to catch big fish for me, now days it's for relaxing and teaching kids to fish.
