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.

The current isn't all that bad. Fish are biting well throughout the day on goldeye. I haven't had to go over 2oz's The sauger are in a wee bit too.

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.

    • Dusty
      good news, I heard earlier that it was under consideration.
    • artjaco
      Looking at the latest images, the lake looks pretty iced over... are there any areas of thin ice / open water to be found? Not looking to fish, need to test some safety gear with a group. Any river mouths open or areas between Duluth and Tettegouche?
    • Bigfatbert
      Yup !!   Also note the new one over change to 26”... it’s currently 28” 18”-26 must be immediately released , and one walleye over 26” may be included daily and possession. Kab , Namakan, Sand Point , Crane . These changes start on the 2019 opener .

      So after the 8” of snow the other day the lakes are a huge mess. I was out for a snowmobile ride yesterday and went to a lake not to far from home. I like to ride out there a couple times a week. So I made a loop around the lake and the snow was about knee deep but had no issues. I was just about ready to head home and checked out an area I like to fish. Well.... I jumped a plowed road bank and sink in about 1 foot of water and slush. I pinned my sled and barley crawled along about 50 years to dry snow. So my weekend plans of fishing are done. This was a smaller lake so I’m sure all lakes are impassable. I have what I think id a good ice fishing sled. A Polaris 600 with a 136” track never had an issue before but with all the snow and slush now there’s no way I’ll be able to fish. The snowmobile trails haven’t beeen grommed after the last snow and I’m getting sick of riding the ditches. Anyone else annoyed with all this snow now? Thanks Mother Nature I now have nothing to do this weekend! 😥

      Way to let "Quasimoto" go and perpetuate his/her goofy genes...  If I catch a bunch of funny-looking, humpy 13.5 inchers in the future, I'm blaming you! 😁  (...as opposed to the scrawny 9 inchers I'm lucky to catch...) Poor thing looks like it's gonna get stuck in the ice-hole!
    • BobT
      I usually keep my sonar unit in the house because I put it on the charger every time I get home. Just for fun, the next time it does it, I might try just warming up the transducer and sending it back down the hole to see what happens. Thanks.
    • BobT
      I didn't think of that! Probably should have glanced down the hole, eh? 
    • gimruis
      Just another reminder that walleye/pike season ends on Sunday too for inland waters.  Don't get caught targeting the wrong species of fish next week.
