Well guys I fished tonight on the Red just north of the North dam (12th Ave N) on the minnesota side. I must say it kinda sucked, tried a few different combinations for about 2 hours and didnt catch anything, only lost about 4 of thoses gomatsu octopus circle hooks. What the heck ill try again later this week, maybe a new location.

BBQ,

Feel free to e-mail me if you'd like to chat off-line about the other spot you referred to. Do you have a boat? I think you mentioned before you didn't, but I can point you in a direction, if that would be helpful.
Also, a better source of info. than me is Backwater Eddy. Ask and he'll have an answer.

BBQ look for some large snag piles down river in the days to come.

Cut goldeye or suckers fished above the snags and out in the channel off the leed side of the snag will prove to be a good bet.

The MN side of the north dam is a snaggy bugger to fish from shore for cats. If you fish the North dam try the ND side down from the dam behind the snag piles to the North.

Good fish'n,

ED

Yeah I have a 14 foot crestliner, but I need to find info for my 1963 Evinrude 18 horse, had a screw come out of the carb and now its been nothing but headaches, i think the screw held in a check valve or a needle/seat combo so it just dumps gas everywhere. So for a while ill be fishin from shore until i can find a manual/parts. Figured I might try the south dam or up by the georgetown bridge, or possible mbj park up in north moorhead.

Kent,

I won't be up that way until about Father's Day weekend (and I'm not sure if I'll be there then or not.) When I do get up there, your phone will be a ringin'.

      In Aitkin now; getting a slow start this morning.  No problem there, it’s a day bite for the most part.   Yesterday I checked one of those two hit list lakes.  Evening into the dark.  I only picked up 2 perch, 1 gill and had one 30 inch pike to the hole 4 times before it came off when I got more aggressive to turn his head into the hole.  I started in 24 feet and worked up to 15 before connecting with anything.   What a fight though. Using a 28 inch pannie rod, 2 lb test on a 13 Descent, fishing size 16 jig and plastic.  After hooking into it and the first head shakes were done it just sat there.  I couldn’t move it for a while but could feel it finning around.  I thought, what the heck!  Did I just hook a beaver?!

      Beautiful morning on the harbor.  6 inches of ice where I'm at.

      60 years ago at the age of 10, I used to read the fishing ads in Field & Stream about fishing in Minnesota.   I always said I would go one day, but as you know life and things get in the way.   Well, I'm 90% retired now and ready to make the long trip from way down south to go fishing in Minnesota, my lifelong dream.   I always wanted to go to the BWCA, but I'm simply not able now due to health problems. I can't do hiking, portaging, etc anymore.   Here's the deal....  I would love to find a small remote cabin (in Minnesota) on a small lake to stay for a week or more, next spring or summer.    I don't need anything fancy... rustic is the best for me.   I want to fish for smallmouth bass and big bluegills and I will bring my boat along too.   If any of you could recommend a small lake, with a small cabin and good fishing to rent for a week or so, I promise I will repay you somehow.   A guide would be nice for a day, or I'd gladly give one of you a nice tip and take you along in my boat fishing, as many days as you want.   Would you please help make my 60-year dream come true?  PM me if you wish.   Thanks in advance.    PS:  If the fishing is better in a spot that doesn't have cabins, I can find a place to stay elsewhere.  Good fishing is more important that a place to sleep anyway.

      Up on mille lacs isle bay. 13.5 inches of ice and half ton trucks out here. Fishing is slow. 1 Walleye last night at 845. Moving the house deeper today.

      Got to work the weekend ... good luck guys!!  Will be checking in to see what these fish look like 😉
    • monstermoose78
      I am going to check some local lakes today 
    • Wanderer
      Thanks @knoppers.   I’m about to head over to that general area.  Makes me wonder if I should load the wheeler.

      What length of the HT BLUES are you looking for? I've seen some 24" @ Walmart stores. Some in the rod/reel combos n some just the rod itself. I got my 30" frm Frankie's bait in Chisago so if you're in that area you can check it out or give them a call. I remember seeing some @ Blue Ribbon baits in Maplewood also. You can also give them a call. I hope this helps.

      Fish went deeper durring the day today. Not easy cracking the code this year

      I shoot through the bottom..  Use plumbers putty to make a ring and use some to keep the diversity in place.   I just add enough water to make a good conductor.  Works great.  No worries about snagging the ducer outside the boat.  As for finders I have an old fish eagle, buddy just picked up a battery operated color unit from amazon says it worked good.
