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

      That's amazing, you have the same Avatar name as a guy who has been selling the same box on here since Sept. Did he give you a better deal then $80 bucks? 🤔

      I just purchased this from bold north outdoors,  now i have everything running off of my battery box.  Its pretty sweet.  I found them on facebook, many people make them, but after the cost of purchasing everything it would cost more then what this company is selling them for

      For portable power on the go, use a Bold North Outdoor battery box, solar panel, and a lithium battery.  You can hook up external 12v lights to the the terminal posts or a usb led light to the usb port.  Charge your electronics, and use the flash lights on the front of the box.   Many uses for this product just named a few, added a couple pictures of what I have inside of my Portable Battery Box. You can check them out on fb or just go to their website.  www.boldnorthoutdoors.com

      Back when I had to go to the barn to get a feed bucket to put my fishing gear in (which it all fit in one bucket), I could catch all kinds of nice fish with nothing more than a homemade rattle reel and a cheap jiggle stick.  As technology and equipment got better, my ability to catch fish went in the toilet.

      @Northlander   You still making rods?     mrpike, Steve makes some great specialized rods for reasonable prices.

      Striker Attack gloves look to be worth a try!  Just saw them at FF tonight - $45 if I remember correctly.   Seemed to be just the ticket; waterproof, breathable, insulated but not too much that you can’t operate.  I usually wear a large but I think an XL would be the right choice for me in that glove.   Really thought about giving them a go.  Still might!

      Thanks guys. Driving on lakes in that area with trucks sounds crazy! Wonder what goes through some people's minds.

      I just broke my last HT blues rod and cant find them locally. I just got a 13 Snitch and a 27" Ul tickle stick how do you all like these? I fish mostly sunfish these should handle the smaller tungsten jigs correct? Anything better out there I just cant justify 100 bucks on a rod I usually start with 3 rods and down to 1 by the end of the year yep I'm a klutz. The HT blues were great but just no back bone and annoying no hook holder cant expect much for 9 bucks but they sure worked good.
