I haven't been out yet. My buddies and I are heading out on Thursday to set up our shack and try our luck. According to the posts on the Fishing Manitoba Bulletin Board the fishing is slow. Some big ones are being caught here and there between Selkirk and the End of Main. The ice is reported to be 14-16 inches thick and people are driving on it.

Slow Scoot, very s-l-o-w.

I just spoke with the Cat man and the boyz at the end of the line today, they all said it was very slow.

The @%# $%^%@ ^^#@#%^ gill nets on the Red are not helping too @#% much! PO'd folks Eh!

Water clarity is poor, it got murky this week, that doesn't help either.

If it turns around I will shoot ya the scoop as soon as I get it Scoot.

Thanks for the scoop- not what I wanted to hear, but thanks!
It looks my next two weeks are pretty much fishing-free. I'll get out a time or two to try for a deer still, but it'll be 2003 before I fish again.
Let's go snoop around on the rivers after my little hiatis.

Well the Red has been slow for the most part for me this hardwater season. I've had two good days for fourteen full day forays.... I've fished with some pretty patient folk to say the least.
Ed has reported very well on some of the issues (we need a political change as well!).... I'm hoping the bigger picture is something cyclical in nature.
As an aside, I've had great days on Lake Manitoba for Perch and lake Dauphin for 3-5# 'eyes and Clear lake for good size whitefish and Pike.... but they're not the bodies of water you want to hear about.....

Well, I want to wish this fishing community a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.

I haven't heard anything so I assume it's still slow up north. Is this assumption correct?

According to the posts on the Fishing Manitoba Bulletin Board the bite appears to be picking up. Some decent sized eyes being caught here and there on the Red between Lockport and End of Main. It appears that the sauger bite is hot right now at Lockport.

Things have deffinately picked on the lower Red, but not for everyone. The guys that are having the most success are fishing extremely light presentations. 1/8 oz. jigs in twenty to thirty feet would have to be considered as light. But the tactic's is working nobody can argue that.
Obviously your have to try and match the line with this light of tackle, four pound test seems to be the ticket. two pound test thru the ice is hardly an option and six pound test with a 1/8 jig in twenty plus feet, again not much of an option.

There's a group of us heading out this coming Sunday, not sure if were going to hang around Lockport and harass the sauger or head north of Selkirk in pursuit of maybe a trophy?

Fish "Hard" Forever!

Stu if light and thin is the deal. See if you can find a spool of the 1/8 PowerPro. That stuff is great in rivers, thin as frog hair, very tough too.

I have seen a huge difference in what I can do with lighter tackle in the flow when using the 8/1. They also have another new size, the 4/15, if you want to have a bit more muscle. I find the 1/8 very tough, I think far stronger then 8.

This stuff really has impressed me! I like FireLine, but Eh, this stuff is dang good.

      Has anyone fished North Lake before? Lakefinder says there’s a navigable waterway there via Gunflint Lake. However, the map shows rapids in between Little Gunflint and Little North, with a short portage. Just wondering if I could get a boat in there.

      Have got out 3 evenings so far.  Seeing deer only one of those evenings.  4 deer Monday evening with a fawn buck and a small 1 and half old buck coming within range.   Woods and fields are changing fast.

      Good opener on the water in the Mankato area. 3 wood ducks and 2 geese. Little guy’s first opener, we left at 10:00 and he wanted to stay longer than I did!

      As many of the other dog owners told me the third hunting season is when it comes together for lots of dogs. Finn did much better today and he got to watch a veteran dog again. I am excited to keep getting finn out hunting

      We got two ducks. We should had more but it was fun shooting. I need to keep my face on my stock. I had pass on many birds as another group moved in on top of us. I had 5 woodies locked up and I drew a bead and I saw the other guys faces. No shot as i would killed them or wounded them. They knew we there but did not seem to care.
    • monstermoose78
      Great job guys!! I got 8 shots off the first one was good then I missed 7 in a row. Gordie got one and well river rat got zero. It was a hoot to hunt with them.

      I have a 2018 ice castle with the GS trailer frame. Are you supposed to drill holes to let water out of the tubes or do the new GS trailers have holes in them already? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      We we're done by 7 this morning.  Were set up over field goose decoys now.
