I am getting a little bit of cabin fever with this warm spell and I think I am going to hit the Red tonight for a little while. What do you use for bait? I am probably going to just pitch a few jigs up around the north dam.

Slap some minnows on the jig and you're in business. If nothing's happening, try shallow diving, wide wobble cranks- sometimes that's all they seem to go on. I'd run up and join you, but we're moving right now and I'm up to my eyeballs in junk to move. Be sure to report back tomorrow and let us know how it went. Watch out for slough sharks near the fresh water return on the MN side (close to the dam). They'll snip you off in a hurry!

Thanks for the info, Scoot. I'll be sure to let everyone know how it was. I have never fished by the dam there, but will give it a try. Are you moving back to the good side of the river? lol Maybe we can meet up some other time and you can share some of your secrets.

My buddy Jon said he bumped into you down there. Sounds like he didn't have any luck. Muddy, fast water- a sign of spring and good fishing to come. Yeehhaa! Even if it's been a while and you didn't do well, I'd suggest going back in a week or two- you won't regret it!

I didn't catch any fish but I did find a few good snags down there. Did your friend tell you that I was the one that was wandering around with the confused look on his face? That water was sure moving down there. I realized that I have absolutely no clue how to fish down there. I didn't have time to get any minnows but it was still fun to get out in that weather. I plan to try again when I can find some time.

I believe that is what people around here call pike or northerns.

Fished a dam in town yesterday and didn't do much. The water's coming up nicely and things are starting to look like spring. huntnfish, keep on doing what you're doing- you won't regret it if you stick to it. Things should kick off pretty soon.

      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
