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.

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.

      There were a lot of ATV/SxS running around the lake but I found it quite slippery even with AWD engaged.  I did see a couple of snowmobiles crossing the lake.  There is enough snow to keep the slides lubricated, especially when the temperature is above freezing.  If your track is studded that would help traction and slide lubrication.

      It looks like it's ATV/SxS season on the lake. Snowmobile season is on temporary (or permanent) hiatus.

      Was back Tuesday-Thursday this week after I discovered that walleye season ends on Sunday, February 25th.  I thought that the season has closed the last day of February in recent years.  I see that I fished on Monday, February 28th two winters ago so lucky I didn't get busted then.   The ice was in very good shape.  I found 15-18 inches of solid ice in the areas I checked.  There was no standing water on the ice and very little snow as shown in the 3 pictures of the McKinley Park landing from Thursday afternoon.  When the temperature was below freezing, the ice was very slippery.  When it warmed up mid day it wasn't as bad.  The landing was starting to deteriorate today, but with the cold weather on Friday it should freeze over.  It may start to get bad again by Sunday when it warms up.  Full size vehicles were still driving out close to Birch Island so apparently that path is still good.   Fishing was very good for late season.  Most of my walleyes were again 9-12 inches, but I did catch a 21, 24, and 27.  I was lucky to catch my limit of 14-15 inchers today to bring home for a meal.  The walleyes preferred small rainbows, but also liked lively chubs.  I caught four fish on the same small rainbow today when I was running low on small ones.  I finally gave up on that minnow when I went 20 minutes without a bite.  I had 3 rainbows come off the hook on their own; one when I dropped it in the hole and the other two when I dropped them to the bottom.  I think that happens when you hook them in the soft part of their body.  I caught my first tulibee of the winter (15 inches) and it really stunk up the house.  I also caught a lot of perch for the first time this winter.  I only caught 1 perch the previous 14 days I fished, but I caught 11 perch in these 3 last days, including six that were 11-13 inches long.  I wish I liked to eat perch so I could have kept them.  The hardest bite I had this week was by the pictured 8 inch walleye.  This little guy grabbed that full sized minnow and pulled it quickly to to bottom of the hole.  (However the 27 inch walleye did peel off a bit of drag bringing her in).  Morning bite from 830 to 1230 was best.   If you venture out the last weekend of the season, good luck.  Be cautious of ice conditions since the sun can really melt some holes in the ice this late in the season.

      i cant speak for out that way but check the st cloud thread.......Rick gavee a pretty decent report on the ice around the area. he fishes a ton in the winter and is thinking of calling it quits............that tells me something!!!!

      be careful!!

      Thinking about one last outing, any information on the ice?
    • Brianf.
      There's not much snow left from what I can see on our Ring cam.  This is facing North across Niles Bay.  Also, the temp is 44 at this moment so what snow might be left is going fast.

      @Rick G   have you changed your approach or how you are fishing with no snow cover this year? It seems to really have changed things. Fish are spooky to  any movement above the ice.  Even just jigging a rod with your hand etc. spooks fish. Weed lines are not dying off etc., fish are staying up shallower etc.   I have had a lot more luck just dead sticking and bobber fishing and being away from holes or intentionally drilling holes in slush pockets or drifts to eliminate shadows etc.

      Awesome cause Rick!!👍👍👌

      Fishing has been pretty good for the most part with the exception of a slow day mixed in here and there. Been on a few different lakes in the last week. Ice conditions continue to fluctuate depending on warm and cold spells.  Right now there is 7-8 inches on the lakes I have been on. Snow cover is just about gone again, and with the warm days coming I think our ice season might be coming to an end locally.  Today I fished with a good buddy and we were on a mission... To find enough fresh fish to feed the folks at a local veterans home Friday dinner.  Mission accomplished!!!   Found a good mix of perfect eater size fish😁.
