Lockport MB Red River report. 9-17-03

Howdy howdy howdy... Wow that was a good time... The water was cooling off and very low however the Cats had an mission of their own. Water temp was 66 degrees and it was very low up by the dam and several rocks and rock bars were showing that we had no idea were even there. But that is where the cats were feeding. At times it was hard to keep up with two bobbers.


Floats were the trick. Nothing caught on slip bottom rigs. Floats in 1.5 - 3 feet of water were just crazy. We boated 265# of fish in a 40 min. span. Smallest fish was 12#. Largest was 27-29#. My scale said 26.11# but it has been proven to be off by about 4#. It was 34 inches with a girth of 24". We lost count on how many we got in the boat but it was a lot.... Two days of fishing and we boated at least 1500# of fish.

Fishing was on and off like a light switch. You just had to keep moving and you would find them again. When the cats started to surface and roll it was time to keep an eye on the floats because they were on the feed again. At times the surface would come alive with cats.

It was great to meet the faces to the FM names. It is a must that we try to get a FM gathering up to Lockport and swarm Stu with fishing stories and BS. Each group should bring at least one person that has not catfished and let them feel the deep belly addiction we all come to love.

Loved the cabins Stu. I have to find out how you got them huge pics on the walls.. We will be back more often. That fella I had with me is now addicted also and will start his monthly visits to Catters Annynomous this week. lol....

I don't know what else to tell ya but if you have not ever been to lockport catting it is a must do.......That spring feed is increadible..... If it is your first time catfishing it will spoil you for the rest of your life....Take the time, contact Stu at www.catsonthered.net and set up a date and bring some asprin for them sore arms in the morning.

Keep an eye on that float and slack to a minimum..................

      I had a good opener, also with ten. We should have taken a lot more, but shooting, jitters, and other factors prevented it (as usual). For us, Sunday was really slow, but still managed to bag a few. 
    • Parmer
      That's a good idea thanks.

      We love it when we catch a muskie, but it can be such a grind!

      Just got back from five days on the lake. We were fishing for walleye in the end fun with limits already taken. We are on an island and the dock bite was very good. Slip bobbers with either rainbows or chubs. Also, walking the island and casting tubes was also productive for larger walleye. Off the point of the island, under dock, near rocks. I guess that means we caught most of our fish shallow. Wind was our friend, to a point. Didn't like some of the gusts but wind blown shore and points were key. Follow the wind.   Smallmouth were not shallow. We did work some shoreline but did not find those fish up shallow. We did run into some smallmouth on the points, etc deeper while fishing for walleye.

      I had a good opener.  Two friends and I got 10 ducks and with some better shooting we could probably had 12 or 13.  It was significantly better than the last two openers and certainly better than I expected.  We had nice mixed bag of wood ducks, mallards, teal, and even got a shoveler.  It was very comfortable out there too.  Was nice not to sit there and roast away in my chest waders this time.

      If that is a new 2018 rig I would call the MFG and see what they think?  If you have a warranty on it, that may invalidate it?

      We have been up since Saturday and all we got are small walleyes.  Very windy today.  Hope wind goes down  
    • pikeandchester
      Quite a bit slower today. Only saw 2 teal between yesterday and today, which  really surprised me and most of the wood ducks seemed to have moved on. Didn’t stick around long enough for the geese. Hope everyone had a great weekend and good luck!

      How is it going today 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Carp30, Vermilion is starting into the fall transition period now that the water is cooling down. The bite can be either great or tough during this period. Yesterday we caught walleyes as deep as 44' and as shallow as 10'! Location and time of day is the key! We caught walleyes deep using short snell Lindy rigs,( 2 ft.), with minnows, The shallow walleyes hit best on the same rigs using 1/2 crawler. Sand and rock mix or transitions are the key areas right now. Necked down areas that have deep water and adjacent sand flats are almost always good now. Cliff
