Word form Lockport is they popped a couple of gates wide open and the water is high, this is a very good thing.

This has the cats up at the dam in big numbers right now, great time to go would be SOON.

A friend was just there and hit way over 1000 pounds of cats in a day, that be cat'n folks.

This weekend would be a great time to head up if you can. Be sure to bring extra anchors just in case you loose one.

A 10# 'eye was reported caught around the Netley creek area. I don't think it says they're in but probably on their way!

Hey Ed..... what's this I hear about your Carp Minnow theory nd the greenback bite..... can you elaborate a little? Thanks

Makes sense Ed about the bait..... another query for you Ed.....About what time this fall will you start working the night shift for ol' marble eyes? Is there a particular period of time eg. 4 hours after sunset or some other time period, that'll have the best bite. Are you fishing the really turbid stuff or are you fishing some of your clearer feeder rivers/streams where they come into the river? I've tried it up north here (the river itself as well as Netley) but to no real gain.... water is a bit too murky it seems to me. How about the time of the fall season does this make a difference? No one that I've heard of does walleye "at night" in the Red (North) or Winnipeg rivers to any extent....... maybe someone should give it a more concentrated effort. Suggestions?

The mouth of the marsh and the cuts would be a very good plan at night if you ask me.

Sumo cranks or frogs and jigs may be a idea worth tossing around?

The piggys have to prowl the reeds after dusk, they always do in the early fall. Find the right corner and look out, they will stack in at night.

I try to look for cleaner areas as the water clears and the temps drop. May be a week or so with all that flow up there now huh?

I will see how the 13th works out, we may be there before that, not sure yet?

Saturday September 07, 2002

Hey Backwater,

Just to let you know that we hammered them yesterday. Regardless of where we fished, deep or shallow, those "kitties" were cooperating fully. In all, we boated a total of nineteen trophies. We also caught our share of smaller fish. Bait of choice, Goldeye, frogs and Sucker, they were all productive. However, Sucker was the least productive, Goldeye and frogs were a toss-up. This is very typical this time of year.

There's a lot of water moving thru the system at this time. At the momment this means the Sauger and Walleye action has come to a halt! Unlike ol'whiskers, 'eyes, sauger and others don't fare too well when the water gets all churned up.

Providing the rain situation throughout the valley settles down, we should be back hunting for 'eyes around the third week. Only time will tell.

Good luck this weekend!

Put in a long day today on the Red from Selkirk to the lake. Caught a couple of cats (one on a crank) and quite a few saugers. Saugers bit early morning and the evening on jigs (3/8 chart/orange) with shiners. Caught one small walleye as the last fish of the day ....and it shone nicely. Didn't meet a lot of people who caught many walleye but people were still having good success with the cats.

And for something really different .. on Saturday did a drift on the Assiniboine river (about 35km in length 9 hrs.) from pth 340 to #5 highway through the Carberry Sandhills... we pulled spinners/bouncers and used worms and minnows, some jigging as well.... and caught a good number of cats (up to 11#) and wide range of walleye up to 26.5". Very few people fish this area (we were the ONLY boat) although we did meet a couple of farmers who were shore fishing for walleye.

      I need to hit Linwood up as that is a lake I fished so much with my grandpa. Used to get lots of keeper gills and nice crappies and big pike out of there.

      Lakes around Princeton are froze over or close. Lori lake had the most open water and lots of ducks. Silver lake capped over and stanchfield south and north mist froze over.

      I saw enough ice on smaller lakes in the Crosslake area to know they are getting closer and colder to icing over!

      On the main basin... For those fishing the lake, fishing has been good.  Most bays and harbors locked up with ice this past week, which has put a halt to the open water fishing.  At last report, there are good numbers of walleyes and saugers staged in traditional early ice locations across Pine Island and the entire south shore.  With fish location, numbers and fall success, LOW is primed for good early ice fishing. On the Rainy River... The Rainy River is still loaded with walleyes.  Some anglers made it out this week but single digits locked up any water not moving and it is pretty much done.  Anglers that got out had big numbers of walleyes to reward them, similar to previous week.  Up at the NW Angle... Ice is formed in back bays, harbors, on the angle inlet, from Young's Bay to Flag Island and across most of Flag Island flats.  Larger stretches of water or current areas still open.  Ice fishing will be here soon, but not yet.  Stay on staked resort ice trails when ice fishing begins.  Safety first.

      I am a maki mino guy the 1 inch ones for gills and crappies. The xl mino is great for big crappies perch and eyes. I have used many of the maki plastics but I tend to have the best luck with white with red flakes mino. The poli was good as well.

      I bought the inferno with yellow guide wraps last year for a walleye rod.Good rod,good feel however after a month and a half of using it the top guide developed a cut in it from the line(I use 6lb suffix mono only).I emailed tucr they said bring it in and we will see what we can do.I wanted to see if they could put a different tip on it but they said they wouldnt do that and they gave me another inferno of the same model.I used it for the last month of the season and guess what? The top guide has a cut in it again.I realize these are a cheaper rod than their top of the line however I have other rods I have used for many years and payed much less for that have no cuts/slices in any of the guides.Seemed like they were trying to upsell me to a better rod with better guides.Why would i spend 55$ on a cheaper rod to find out its junk then give them double that for what they say is a better rod.They have nice rods but they lost my business 55$ for a rod that didnt last a season isnt going to get me on their bandwagon.

      Congrats! That doe is a trophy! Very nice deer and sounds like a great hunt. Cool to be able to be able to track deer on camera and then connect with them later on.
