Don't miss out on the "Cats on the RED Cats Classic "

Recommended Posts

Guest

For the folks who love big fish and lots of them plus a bit of competition you won't want to miss this one!

Cats Classic info;
http://fishingminnesota.com/2002Catsonthe.html

Over $14,000 in prizes and daily big fish and total weight prizes, plus a drawing for a fish off for an additional cool prize. Not too shabby Eh!

For the accomplished cat hunter to the novice this is a event where anyone could win big so consider it as a potential paid vacation.

This is one fun event that I would not miss out on!

Catching MONDO SUMO PIGGYS and maybe come home with some cool cash and hot prizes, now that is what I call a vacation Eh!

Remember the US/Canadian exchange rate is ver favorable, which almost pays for the trip in itself!

OK piggy hunters, here is the scoop on the Cats on the RED Classic for 2002.

I heard from Stu as to what he thought we should do. So I spoke with him early this morning and this is our final decision on the tournament matter.

It's a go no matter how many teams we have in by the Friday August 16th, Entry Deadline. Even if we only have 40 teams entered by that time, it's still a go!

Yippee! Yeah! So pass along the good word Ed.

You can also pass along the word that the river is dropping rapidly to its normal summer stage and that this weekend Cats On The Red has had many anglers coming in to launch from Saskatchewan, North and South Dakota, Iowa and Minnesota. Many of them have told Stu and Diana that they definitely intend on entering the tourney within the next week or so.

If you require further info please call. So see if you can get a memo into those fishing websites you work with and all the anglers browse through and let everyone state side know that the Cats On The Red Tourney is a definite go!

Conditions look very good for July and August.

(Red River flowage chart for the Lockport Dam section of the Red River.)

Lots of time yet to get in your entry for the Cats on the Red Classic for 2002. Information is available on the forum or just do a quick search and it will pop up.

River levels should match last August by the end of July, and last August was big fish time, eh!

Water levels overall on the US section of the Red River are back in the banks and fishing is on the upswing in a big way.

July through early October is big fish time on the Red, don't miss the boat eh.

It's..."We~We~We"...SUMO Piggy time!

      I will try to make it Nick.  Should be a go unless a I have a grand kid birthday party to attend.

      My transducer issue was during open water.   My hypothesis after several transducers was that freezing them after having been in the water damaged them.    Once I stopped letting them freeze then they stopped going bad.   Maybe some water was getting into them and causing damage when it froze.   The transducer in my Minnkota  US2 is fine with freezing.

      I fished by the Lester area yesterday n today. I was in 75-78’ water. Had one school of coho’s chase my jig all the way to the bottom of the ice. I looked down the hole and was amazed by the fish just swarming around my jig and just nipping the tale. That was my very first time out there. Didn’t catch any, but seeing those fish made it all worth it. At Lester there is an Easier way out there if you go to the south side of the river. It’s an easier trail to follow out onto the lake. There must be some open water just north of there. There was a lot of mallards flying around and landing. ?

      I don’t have what your requesting , but you can do just as I did to verify such changes by calling the Mn DNR at 651-296-6157 ...

      When you rubbed your hand on the ducer before, did you notice a thin layer of ice on it?  I’m guessing No, with how you described the situation, but that can happen with a ducer that’s below freezing when you dunk it in the water.  It ruins sensitivity.     You’re open ice fishing, yes?  Not in the warmth of a house?  Like the others mentioned, could just be your graph doesn’t like the cold.  And it’s always better to have the depth range locked in than on auto.   Good luck Bob.
    • Walleye Guy
      Do you have a link to an article or regulation that shows the changes?
    • Wanderer
      Yeah, I think we’ve had enough.  The silver lining for me is I DONT plan on fishing this weekend.  But I do have to ready my sled for next weekend in ON.  I’m hoping the snow isn’t as bad up there.  Strange to think it’s a possibility but yeah, that’s how much we have in MN.   I kept my face plastered to the plane window going down to Denver on Monday.  The snow line peters out around the NE/CO border.  The only people not complaining about snow and cold at home were from CA!   I thought there was a noticeable lack of fishouses out on our MN lakes too.  I hope to get a good view of Mille Lacs when we come into Brainerd.  It was amazing how small the lake looked on the way out! 😄
