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.

      Some of the lakes have roads park and walk it what I will be doing

      Yeah I'm planning and scouting starting next week.  Any help is appreciated.   Also a reminder....   You will need a new fishing license as of 3/1/19.  The warden often comes by to say "hi"  and chat for a bit at our gathering.   I would hate to have someone forget.   Especially me. 😉

      I got stuck on West Rush Wednesday.  Thanks to Nick?  P  from Rush City for helping me get out.  I couldn't budge.  Mike from Mike's towing was going to come out and rescue me but Nick saved me a bundle!  Thanks, Mike for being willing to come out on the ice.    Just wondering how travel is on Rush and Pokegama this weekend.  I will be hesitant go get out until the snow gets packed down on a bit.!!!

      Might want to have him call a realtor but I think there is something open in that strip mall behind McDonald's. A friend retired and closed his jewelry store and that spot might work good. I think it's called Pokegama  Plaza. Next to Edward Jones and Sears.

      Hey PRO V, you wouldn't happen to know of any office spaces for rent in rapids would you? My co worker is maybe thinking of moving our office up there if he can find a reasonable price and enough room for his cabinets.

      I am going to put a get together on Blue Lake in March!! I am thinking the second weekend at the time. My question is would Saturday or Sunday be best for most of you? This will be out of the north access as I have work on finding a good spot with active fish yet. Please let me know and if you are interested in helping find a spot with active fish. Thanks
