Scoot

I fished the South Dam last night for 1.5 hours. Not much happening- I caught the grand slam of Red River bass- a whitey, rocky, and smallie. I met another fisherman (Tom) who was having pretty similar luck. He caught about a 2 lb. slough shark and I think a couple of goldeyes (it my memory serves me correctly). Not much happening.

I have heard Northern Pike called a lot of things (some i cant even print here) but never a slough shark!
It goes to show you can always learn something new on FM.
But dont call my one of favorite fish to catch names!! wink.gif

Fished the Red Lake River at the dam in Crookston and we pulled in 10 keeper cats for three of us. Fishing was slow and when the sun went away so did the fish. People on shore all came and went without a fish.

I guess I'm done fishing for a while, and yes that sucks.

With decent weather you'll be back at it in no time at all, Ed. Also, you'll get some scouting info on this board if some of us rookies can get out and will share info with you.
If you're interested, I've got some more venison again. I've got pepper sticks coming out of my ears and you're welcome to some. I shot a muley with my bow three weeks ago and the meat is done already- quite tasty too!

I may take you up on that Scoot. You take aim at some tasty critters Eh.

Get this, my fridge dies on me last night or sometime this weekend anyway. So I had to poop can a bunch of stuff. I had melted chocolate ice cream all over thawed meat.......not cool. So I get to eat out of a cooler for a while tell it gets replaced. I called the landlord and he appears to not be in any big hurry to replace it, but I will keep him on speed dial tell he does. grin.gif

I have my monster industrial freezer in the shop that has plenty of room. So I have storage yet if I need it, both in the fridge part and the main freezer..lots of room. Fishhead and the crew seen it, I think I may have enough room there huh guys. LOL!

I finally found the master controls for it. Now I have it dialed in just right to keep bait in the live well on top, crawlers in the fridge, and cuts frozen if I need be.

You need to see that Sumo Freezer Scoot. It has two taps on it, with a in-line chiller system. If I still slopped down the brew, man I could live in the garage. grin.gif Might have you guys test it next season at the Frog Hop and see if it chills a keg well?

I have a very strong hunch I will be relocating come spring. So the Frog Hop may be hopping along somewhere else in 2004. Time will tell on that, details are foggy yet?

Hey them hoppers on jigs are doing well for the Kitty's. Same spots I brought you to last fall right about now. Shallow mud flats on the head and tail, just like before. wink.gif

Catch ya Scoot.

Fished the South dam last night for an hour and it was dead. I'm assuming that the fish should start moving in anytime yet. Ed, you still want to hit the Goose with me and possibly Scoot, we should try to hit it sometime soon.

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?
    • gimruis
      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.
    • gimruis
      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..

      Good fishing in the Blue Earth river too. Also, a short drive to Rapidan can be productive.

      Welcome to the site @eg_gophers2124 I have never even seen the lake but these screen shots might help. Navionics Judging by the Lake Finder report, it’s a super clear lake; 17-20 foot clarity but with plenty of weeds. A couple shots of the weed report. Starting from scratch, I would head to the southwest area.  The southern basin has better looking structure too. You might do well simply working edges of the emergent weeds with spinnerbaits in low light and weedless frogs or spoons up in the weeds when it gets to be mid day.  Crawler under a slip bobber on the weed edges could do well also. It’s purely guessing on my part.  Hopefully someone with experience on the lake will chime in. Good luck!

      walked that creek to the river many years!!!  again home area!!!!

      Bring your spinning rod and fish for walleyes or white bass at the confluence. Wherever the river is pounding the shoreline fish the current breaks for big flatties. Heavy fiberglass rod with a sturdy baitcaster and 50 lb power pro line will be effective. Fish the head of snags for channels. Setup just like a Lindy rig for them with 1 oz to 5 oz no roll sinker and a big live bait like a 7" bullhead or even larger sucker for flatties. Use cut strips of bait off a large sucker or something similar for channels. Frogs can be good too. Have fun.
