Cats for the First time!

Recommended Posts

Now that I have my password and user name all figured out, let me ask you Eddy some Q's!
Thanks for the last post regarding what to have for equipment. I'll print that out!
As to where to go? I've been ready past posts and sounds like a Catfish Haven area sounds good? Any other details or references to where I might go? I'm looking at August sometime, but don't know when...anytime better than any other?!
I've got the gear, now I just need a destination on the Red. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Eddy!

You will find lots of mud up there right now I am sure. The river is high up North yet and I talked with a group that came from Drayton today, all mud.

Right now the headwaters or central part of the Red is the most stable, that would be my best bet for you.

It's a long river, lots of spots to fish.

Thanks Eddy for the update! I got news of the Inn Fisherman Catfish guide to pick up. I'll take a look at it and get back in touch with you.
I hope to have a place pinpointed towards my August trip and I will probably have questions for you.
Thanks for the response!

      Saw on MPR that this year had been even warmer than 2012.  If this weather pattern continues, Lake V will be ice out before the March 28th date from 2012.

      Awesome fish. Way to go.

      That is a true giant slab around here.

      I did a lot of crappie fishing in 2012.   I'd say April 1 is a conservative guess. March 25 seems doable. Depends on the rain and the wind in March.

      Do you park at The Landing or have someplace closer? That would be a hall from The Landing!

      I hate to start this thread early, but this ice doesn't have much of a chance this season. It's about half as thick as it should be, there is no snow cover to protect it from the March sun, and it continues to be abnormally warm. Let's hear those ice-out predictions.   I expect the smaller bays to be open by the last weekend of March with the main lake soon after, likely prior to April 1st. Earliest ice-out on record is March 28th, 2012.   On the plus side, the spawn be done long before fishing opener. Combine the reduced walleye harvest with the longer growing season, and this should translate into a better walleye class for the lake.

      I walked into my place late Friday night. It was beautiful - a full moon, no snow and single digits so the lake was making all kinds of noise, wolves howling, and the kicker.....no wind. The only difficult component to walking was the ATV and snowmobile impressions left in the ice. Every once in a while my foot would catch a rise in the ice and I would stumble and almost fall. Besides that, it was a perfect night. Unfortunately I had a schedule to keep, otherwise I would have started a midnight bonfire to stay out and enjoy the evening even longer.
