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..................

      Out tonight with the kids, honeycomb ice on the top 2 inches with water over the sheet of thick ice. Exposed shorelines are soft, my dog and kids broke through while walking. Even though the shores are shot for driving I’m guessing we’ll have good walkable ice (waders) for a while...

      Haha - ya I spose!  Only we weren’t shooting paper.  Painted steel hanging targets with a spotter and spotting scope. Drive to em to paint em but no retrieval.  
    • smurfy

      Got out for a couple hours yesterday. West end of Francis again, several small sunnies but no crappies this time. Access is pretty beat up, need waterproof boots but the ice is holding up so far. Couple guys had an Argo out.

      Nice @AlwaysFishing23!   We drove by there last night and were tempted to pop a few holes but had burgers on the brain too much.   I got over half of the bottom part of the list done today and 1 part of the top list done, which was much more fun!   A friends custom 6.5 dialed in.  Started at 500 yards and finished at 1000; 7 mph cross wind.  My favorite hits were the 4 inch circle at 550; the 4”x5” plate at 700 and managing a 12 inch 3 shot group at 1000.  Man, he’s got this baby down.
    • monstermoose78
      Wow the fish were on fire but little. I caught so many 4-7 inch gills and one 3 over 7 inches. Crappies were harder to come by and 5-7 inches. 
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Got out fishing this morning at about 9am and was off by 2. Had a group of good buddies join and ended with 3 limits of big gills (8”-9.5”),  (limit on this lake is 10 per person per day) 2 jumbo perch, 3 decent pike, and 3 largemouth ( all pike and bass were released immediately as they are out of season). AWESOME day with a good group of buds. Sight fishing in 4-5FOW made the action even more fun😁 if you were able to get out it was a great day to be out with friends, family or the kiddos.

      We get mailboat delivery on Black Duck Island (east Frazer Bay) starting around the 1st of June through the first week of September. Other times, the Tower PO is good about holding mail. Aronson Marina runs the mailboat and could answer your question about Portage Bay.  Good luck, Dick
