Does any one know of any lake or small streams around the Grand Forks area that might hold enough suckers to try catching a few. anything within 100 miles or so. Thanks

Upper Red lake might to close to that 100 mile mark but the ditches fill up full of suckers in the spring their. Bring a pickup and fill the box full if your looking to smoke fish. Just make sure it's a sucker and not a walleye!

You don't have to travel.

You can catch all the suckers you want, several species, including redhorse, down by the dams.

We have spent many days fishing below the Red Lake River dam on the Point, right down at the Point itself. Just put on a slip bobber and set it 1.5 to 2 feet deep. Put a crawler on the hook and drop the line in only two or three feet offshore along the rip-rap.

Fishing this way seems to be better on rip-rap along the Red Lake River side of the Point than on the EGF/dike side of the RLR.

Mixed bag of sucker, walleye, sauger, goldeye, a rare smallmouth, white bass even (true! one time only). Throw on minnows too for variety, and you won't catch many suckers but can add crappies to the list.

Yeah, all those species are no lie!

All you have to do is go the the north landing on the ND side and go down river a whays to that first inlet where they are doing all that land scaping and net they like crazy after may 1. or go the nest inlet where all the cement is. They are just thick in the spring. Just keep checking after May1. I am not positive on ND side for May 1. but MN is May1.

Good luck I just might see you there.

      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.

      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.
