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.

      Been awhile since I posted, busy summer but finally got the kayak back out on the Mississippi to chase after them fall smallies. The bite was really good and managed a new personal best at 21"! Bait of choice is my wacky worm, they never can resist! I'll be chasing these till ice is on the lakes. Best fishing is right around the corner, goodluck everyone!    Video:  https://youtu.be/PJOZITB0ol0

      Was up last weekend to Kab, and fishing is very good right now. We caught a lot of walleyes (lots of smalls) on jig & minnow, and got in to a lot of Crappies as well. Have fun! The bite is on.

      Appreciate it barbel. Any info is good info this time of year. Head up in 4 days. I think all the fisherman are all haunting the woods instead of the water right now. Thanks again
