I'm wondering if any of you guys are into fly fishing, and if anyone fly-fishes the red river?

I just got my first fly rig and cant wait to give it a shot this year.

(also i finally bought a catfish rod rig so I can play with some sumo's this summer, cant wait)

Yes I flyfish for all species (in the Red of the North) but I'm especially interested in cats for a change of pace. The bite is unique and the fight is next to none....

Hey Shawn,

Good to meet you today. We never did find any number of fish while looking. Some goofing around, but we searched high and low and didn't produce much.
Last summer a fella by the name of Saint Mark did some asking about fly fishing on the Red. You may want to do a search for some of his posts. Sounded like a knowledgable fly fisherman.
Good luck,
Scoot

I've been off for a while but now I'm back. Yes I fly fish for pike, trout, blugills,bass, and this summer MUSKIE!!!!
What type of help are you looking for. I'm actually headed down to the Red, North Dam tonight actually. I am ready, willing and able to give advice. I do alittle teachin in casting and tying. My price is the best FREE.
Perhap a cold pop is nice!! I ususally check my mail in the evening. I should be at the north dam from 5:30 till 8pm tonight. I'll be on the ND side. Just ask for saint mark or jackfrost. I'll be the guy all wrapped up in fly line like a mummy smile.gif

Sorry I didnt read this mesdsage until 9:30 so I didnt make it down to the river. Unfortunately had to cover at work till 8 ( gotta love theese 12 hour days).
I was mostly just wondering if anyone has tried fly fishing the red. Im gettin set up right now and taking classes at the Mhd High school. And I started tying my first flies last week, so its always nice to talk with someone that has some experience.
Let me know when you head out next time.

Well, fishing was great, but catching was tough. Didn't see anybody catch a thing. Saw a guy feed the snags a crank bait or three!!
I probably try to go down wed night for a bit. Can't catch at home!! If you see a gray ford with topper, it might be me. I'll be in my fly vest. Good luck on tying. It's a dying art. Don't know to many people around that do. I'll be on the ND side around 6pm or so!! Maybe see ya there.

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.
    • ozzie
      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck

      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.  
    • ozzie
      so just curious how is the water situation in the area?  the document didn't open and I don't get up in the area as often as I would like but I have heard of quite a few storms roll through the area.  I know the sentiment earlier this year was it was gonna take a lot to get things going in the right direction, so has that started to happen or still way below normal?  Thanks
