What's the word, guys? I haven't been out so somebody give me the scoop. I'm hoping the rain we had might improve the bite a bit.

The catfish are going crazy right now. I went through 2 dozen sucker minnows last night.

Hey Crank,

Were you at the place I met you at a couple weeks ago? I've been down there a few times with little to no success. I'm hoping this rain stirred things up a bit and kicked in a bite. Sounds like it worked for some cats, eh?

Close to it, they are in relatively shallow water, after dark, using large sucker minnows and opening-up the bellies seemed to make a difference. Not seeing many walleyes yet. Guy at the bait store on 10th str says he's seen a bunch of big eyes recently.

I'm a little bit baffled as to where to go to find these big walleyes. I've tried the tribs, but for the most part, the water's so dang low it doesn't seem like a likely target. I've tried the confluence of several of the tribs with the Red with no luck. I've tried a few good frog collection areas at night with no luck. Nothing happening at the dams. I'm ready to give up!!! But, I'll keep plugging away at these areas and hope to be at the right place at the right time. I figure it's just a matter of time- if I keep hitting them for the next month I'll hit it right eventually. Curiosity may have killed the cat, but it was persistance that got the piggy walleye caught.

I won't call it a hot bite just yet but.....

Scoot today I stopped off at a few of my shore spots on the local rivers and did well on walleye.

Just pitching plain plastics (sassy shads and Ring-N-Grubs) with no added minnows I managed to pick up several eyes at every stop. On the Red and the Sheyenne they appeared to be on the feed. Water clarity is very clear.

Felt darn good to get a tug on the line again, yup..felt very good.

Cool- thanks for the update. I've been away working with my dad for a couple days (a little fishing too). I'll probably get out this week sometime.

      I remember the picture you are talking about, but I think it was last year some time and I just don't think I could wad through all of Duff's politic fall out to find it!  😵   One of my buddies put up those adhesive backed thin cork-board squires on two of his cabin walls. Pretty fun idea of his family growing up at the cabin.  With fishing, hunting pictures mixed in.

      Looks like their still running the small motel. Hope they rebuild it was a pretty nice place when they remodeled a few years ago.

      Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup were pretty much ice free this past weekend.  Spring Bay has ice as it's really protected.  Some ice in Richie but the west wind on Monday pushed it all to the east end.

      Sounds like cost/benefit analysis is underway...

      I tried finding the pic @Duffman posted of the board he put together for his basement/bar I think it was but no dice.  Too much for me sift through.  It was pretty cool though and maybe in line with the OP’s idea.   @leech~~, got some time and mad search skills to dig that one up?

      How is the ice build-up coming along? I can't wait until Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup freeze so that I can get to my place across the ice. I'm hoping for another low-slush year.

      Jim Zupancich, who works out of the flagship store in Ely, said the Zup’s in Cook has been in business for more than 20 years. He added: “We do OK there. It’s a living. We’ll get back on our feet.”   Jim didn't give much of an endorsement but I understand the economics. One of the early articles had the store manager saying that they would rebuild. A later article quoted one of the Zupancich's saying that they would assess the possibility of rebuilding. I think that we all hope that they will rebuild, and hopefully they had good insurance to make it an easy choice.

      As of mid July nothing was going on there. I drove in there, think I parked in the bar!

      Picked up a new supply of pretreated cleaning patches and some Blackhorn loading tubes tonight at Shooting Sports.   I’m just dabbling with getting things ready but the more I do, the more motivated I get to go.  Too bad you’re so wrapped up in hockey this time of year that you can’t really get into it now!  Good to spend time with the kids but ignoring the call is tough.

      Drove by there this morning.  Definitely a sad deal for owners, employees and people in the community.  I also feel for the deer hunters who lost the deer there being processed.  We are hopeful that they will rebuild.
