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.

      Both types of minnows are working. Crawlers are still getting most of our fish in some locations. Cliff

      Guys what I was trying to say with my last post was, That I was in the wrong place, Because this is about Vermilion Lake. If you scroll to the top. Under that blue strip you can find the topic of this form It says Quote "Vermilion-Pelican Lake-Chisholm-Cook-Ely-Eveleth-Hibbing-Orr-Virginia Fishing Reports  Water Level"  That's how I know I'm in the wrong Place!    -Best of luck Fishing.

      You guys catching them on pike suckers or chubs?  Hopefully the wind dies down this afternoon.  Coming up with a big group to help me do the docks and 2 of the hoists.  I have the requisite adult beverages need to get them some fish for the frying pan.

      I've been using the "modern step" scales for about a year now. I bought them on Amazon. They have very good reviews, and the scales are very convenient and suitable for weighing anything.  Here is the link https://www.amazon.com/Professional-Accurate-Reloading-Modern-Step/dp/B01N25OC6P/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1536218450&sr=8-1&keywords=fish+scale

      The Vermillion south of MSP is spelled with two "l"s. The one in this forum only has one.

      It's always nice when you have a week to get everything nicely packed, organized and ready to go. 🙂 It's just that few hours when you get home tired and dump it all in a big dirty pile to sort out that suk! 😆   Gook Luck!

      Good luck and many the ducks fall after you shoot!!

      For all the stuff I thought I had at my fingertips to pack, I sure am taking all week to get it done!  At least I have all my supplies.  I just keep tinkering on this and that, not getting it bagged up!   Leaving tomorrow morning around 9 and should have the entire afternoon to scout our top areas.  We’ll land somewhere in the northern third of the state.
