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


Recommended Posts

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 don't see ice going out til April. Some more 50 degree temps on the way, but still getting near or below freezing most nights and an extended forecast I saw is showing highs around 30 and even some single digit lows at night for the last couple weeks March. Little if any rain too.

      Looks like there's plenty of ice still in Spring Bay! Kids snowmobile racing.

      My wife is in total agreement with yours. I love the quiet and remoteness, my wife hates the ice travel!

      There aren't a lot of cabins in the bay to begin with, a whole other bonus! For the folks on the south side of the bay, it's an access issue as well. People in general are less likely to go in the winter when you don't have road access, because now you introduce ice conditions, snow depth, darkness, cold, and other factors into the trip. While I have always enjoyed those challenges, it is much different to drive up on a Friday night and pull up to your place versus get there at 10pm, unload machines and gear, and go across the lake at night with gear in tow. I love it. My wife hates it. My daughter is in the middle.   Enjoy it up there.

      Being we had a few hours of weather cold enough to make ice I decided to check out one of the small shallow lakes in the St Cloud area.  Ice was in surprisingly good shape this morning, had about 6-7 inches of hard ice again.   Found a pretty decent bite in 8-11 ft of water.  Crappies were riding high in the water colom while sunfish remained close to the bottom for the most part.  Best bait for me was a 3mm motoroil/chrome with a impulse mayfly. By mid afternoon we could definitely tell the ice wasn't as firm as it was in the morning. By the time we left at 4pm I had put all thoughts of returning tomorrow morning out of my mind.  At no point did I feel unsafe, we were prepared for whatever, floatation suits, ropes and ice picks at the ready😏😁.  Today was definitely my last day on the ice for the yr...next stop, spring carp/suckers😁   VID_20240229_150704553.mp4

      Just trying to make as little noise as possible once holes have been drilled.

      I take my sxs all the way down Phillips Rd. road to Cains driveway and turn around at the entrance to Laura's and her son's Brian's driveways, Brian bought Davey Crockett's old place.(I think that was his name). You see them fishing on his dock at the beginning of the narrow part of the channel heading in Black Bay. They have the only 2 driveways that are plowed during the winter down Phillips Rd. My neighbor, whom you met, used to plow his boat house road so we access the lake easier in the winter for ice fishing, but he doesn't ice fishing much anymore, so just sleds down that road. I think I know who lets you access the lake, nice of him. I'm surprised more people in Black Bay don't use their places in the winter. I'm heading up in the morning!

      I drove on I-35 over Albert Lea Lake on Jan 5. It wasn't even partially frozen, and it's like 6-8 ft average depth or something like that. Those lakes in Sourthern Minnesota didn't even get 2 months of ice this year.
