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'.

      We've been big fans of the 3" minnows, and 5" leeches, along with crawlers, great color combinations, with floating versions ta boot.👍👍     Found the pinched half crawlers to work great for adding spin to "slow death" presentation...

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      Ive been out a few times as well..have tried from the harbor all the way up to boyscout...have been getting a few everytime out but has been slow for me....been trolling crawlers with big colorado blades..have caught fish on flats by barkers,between the bridges,and out from clyde area....got 6 cats accidentally while trolling boards by the community hole south west side of spirit lake...water clarity still sucks in the harbor..a bit better the farther up river u go...has it been kinda slow for everyone?????ive been doing better on fish lake.lol

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂
    • LBerquist
      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.
