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

Ed,

Life's getting back to normal for me after my wife's surgery. What does next week look like for you? I can sneak out on Tues. or Thurs. next week- do either of those days work for you?

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'.

      Out tonight with the kids, honeycomb ice on the top 2 inches with water over the sheet of thick ice. Exposed shorelines are soft, my dog and kids broke through while walking. Even though the shores are shot for driving I’m guessing we’ll have good walkable ice (waders) for a while...
    • Wanderer
      Haha - ya I spose!  Only we weren’t shooting paper.  Painted steel hanging targets with a spotter and spotting scope. Drive to em to paint em but no retrieval.  
    • smurfy
      yea no target pic...……...I aint buying it!!!!!!!!😁 awesome looking gun !!!!!!!!!

      Got out for a couple hours yesterday. West end of Francis again, several small sunnies but no crappies this time. Access is pretty beat up, need waterproof boots but the ice is holding up so far. Couple guys had an Argo out.

      Nice @AlwaysFishing23!   We drove by there last night and were tempted to pop a few holes but had burgers on the brain too much.   I got over half of the bottom part of the list done today and 1 part of the top list done, which was much more fun!   A friends custom 6.5 dialed in.  Started at 500 yards and finished at 1000; 7 mph cross wind.  My favorite hits were the 4 inch circle at 550; the 4”x5” plate at 700 and managing a 12 inch 3 shot group at 1000.  Man, he’s got this baby down.
    • monstermoose78
      Wow the fish were on fire but little. I caught so many 4-7 inch gills and one 3 over 7 inches. Crappies were harder to come by and 5-7 inches. 
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Got out fishing this morning at about 9am and was off by 2. Had a group of good buddies join and ended with 3 limits of big gills (8”-9.5”),  (limit on this lake is 10 per person per day) 2 jumbo perch, 3 decent pike, and 3 largemouth ( all pike and bass were released immediately as they are out of season). AWESOME day with a good group of buds. Sight fishing in 4-5FOW made the action even more fun😁 if you were able to get out it was a great day to be out with friends, family or the kiddos.

      We get mailboat delivery on Black Duck Island (east Frazer Bay) starting around the 1st of June through the first week of September. Other times, the Tower PO is good about holding mail. Aronson Marina runs the mailboat and could answer your question about Portage Bay.  Good luck, Dick
