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.

Hey, better that you're busy booking trips than off goofing around with me! We'll get out in the semi-near future and when we do the cats better look out.

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'.

      I had a good opener, also with ten. We should have taken a lot more, but shooting, jitters, and other factors prevented it (as usual). For us, Sunday was really slow, but still managed to bag a few.

      That's a good idea thanks.

      We love it when we catch a muskie, but it can be such a grind!

      Just got back from five days on the lake. We were fishing for walleye in the end fun with limits already taken. We are on an island and the dock bite was very good. Slip bobbers with either rainbows or chubs. Also, walking the island and casting tubes was also productive for larger walleye. Off the point of the island, under dock, near rocks. I guess that means we caught most of our fish shallow. Wind was our friend, to a point. Didn't like some of the gusts but wind blown shore and points were key. Follow the wind.   Smallmouth were not shallow. We did work some shoreline but did not find those fish up shallow. We did run into some smallmouth on the points, etc deeper while fishing for walleye.

      I had a good opener.  Two friends and I got 10 ducks and with some better shooting we could probably had 12 or 13.  It was significantly better than the last two openers and certainly better than I expected.  We had nice mixed bag of wood ducks, mallards, teal, and even got a shoveler.  It was very comfortable out there too.  Was nice not to sit there and roast away in my chest waders this time.

      If that is a new 2018 rig I would call the MFG and see what they think?  If you have a warranty on it, that may invalidate it?

      We have been up since Saturday and all we got are small walleyes.  Very windy today.  Hope wind goes down  
    • pikeandchester
      Quite a bit slower today. Only saw 2 teal between yesterday and today, which  really surprised me and most of the wood ducks seemed to have moved on. Didn’t stick around long enough for the geese. Hope everyone had a great weekend and good luck!

      How is it going today 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Carp30, Vermilion is starting into the fall transition period now that the water is cooling down. The bite can be either great or tough during this period. Yesterday we caught walleyes as deep as 44' and as shallow as 10'! Location and time of day is the key! We caught walleyes deep using short snell Lindy rigs,( 2 ft.), with minnows, The shallow walleyes hit best on the same rigs using 1/2 crawler. Sand and rock mix or transitions are the key areas right now. Necked down areas that have deep water and adjacent sand flats are almost always good now. Cliff
