Man is it just me or is the red river and red lake river at some seriously lows levels? i havnt seen it that low in years if at all. the EGF dam has a trickle going over it and you could walk across the rip rap on the bottom of it. you can see the bottom as plain as day...does this impact the fish at all? i would think it would with low oxygen levels. i was expecting to see a rise with the recent melt but it hasnt moved..hope it recovers soon.

Yeah, I can't remember levels this low either. I'm hoping the spring walleye fishing doesn't get goofy as a result of it.
Has anyone ventured on river ice in the past couple of days? I've wondered if it got bad fast with what runoff we did have and the warm weather. I'd guess that in "smart spots" things would still be fine, but I'm not sure.
cweb, anyone been down by your place fishing over the weekend? I was thinking about coming down there and giving it a shot. Which house is yours? The one on the left with the gold/tan pickup outside of it or the one on the right? Either way, nice shack! My wife and I were driving around down in your neck of the woods looking at homes today. I'm afraid nothing in our price-range down there right now.

Scoot,
There were a few guys out yesterday evening(Sunday). I haven't made it down there in a week. 2 small 'eyes and a 3 lb Northern for a buddy of mine. All I saw was Goldeyes...kept us busy anyways. When I went home for lunch today, there was 1 truck there. A lot of standing water, I am sure the ice is deteriating fast though. The place with the tan truck is mine.

Scoot,
Whats this I was reading about jerky? You make it out for Spring goose or just get your deer back from the fall? Geese are coming fast and furious now out west. Time to make a trip out there.

It was venison jerky that I gave Ed. I hunt geese in the fall, but haven't done too much of it in the spring. I dabble a little in March and April, but not much with the geese.
If I make it over there I'll swing in and get you some venison. Would that work for passage to the river?

cweb,

Anyone down on the river still? I'd still like to try it, but I'd like to stay on top of the water even more. I've got no desire to take another Red River bath!

cweb,

I swung in yesterday to b.s. and see what kind of shape the river was in. No b.s. to be had as I must have been there before you got home from work, but I got a look at the river. I won't be venturing out there for a while. Looks pretty nasty!
I was hoping to take you up on your venison for bud light offer, but missed ya. Maybe next time.

      There is a new scale introduced this year by Rapala and it is better than the other ones because of one simple change: instead of the metal hook there is a clip.  This is what they use in tournaments.  It has a locking mechanism that hooks to the lower jaw.  The hook sucks.  Always has, always will.  Sticking a metal hook up inside the gills of a fish to weigh it is a terrible idea, plus they can shake off and then smack on the floor and die.  Skip the hook, use the clip.

      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.
