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.

      We have been up since Saturday and all we got are small walleyes.  Very windy today.  Hope wind goes down

      Quite a bit slower today. Only saw 2 teal between yesterday and today, which  really surprised me and most of the wood ducks seemed to have moved on. Didn’t stick around long enough for the geese. Hope everyone had a great weekend and good luck!

      How is it going today

      Carp30, Vermilion is starting into the fall transition period now that the water is cooling down. The bite can be either great or tough during this period. Yesterday we caught walleyes as deep as 44' and as shallow as 10'! Location and time of day is the key! We caught walleyes deep using short snell Lindy rigs,( 2 ft.), with minnows, The shallow walleyes hit best on the same rigs using 1/2 crawler. Sand and rock mix or transitions are the key areas right now. Necked down areas that have deep water and adjacent sand flats are almost always good now. Cliff

      If  my memory serves me correctly , yes you can . I believe that we were able to safely walk a 16ft boat through the short stretch of current . When we did this it was warm part of summer and we were in shorts and just had a pair of tennis shoes on when we walked the boat up stream which was about a 30 yard or so pull .Now if you would attempt this during colder weather like now , I’m sure a pair of knee length rubber boots would be sufficient . Very beautiful clear water with awesome scenery . Walleye , Smallmouth , and Lakers .

      Has anyone fished North Lake before? Lakefinder says there’s a navigable waterway there via Gunflint Lake. However, the map shows rapids in between Little Gunflint and Little North, with a short portage. Just wondering if I could get a boat in there.

      Have got out 3 evenings so far.  Seeing deer only one of those evenings.  4 deer Monday evening with a fawn buck and a small 1 and half old buck coming within range.   Woods and fields are changing fast.

      Good opener on the water in the Mankato area. 3 wood ducks and 2 geese. Little guy’s first opener, we left at 10:00 and he wanted to stay longer than I did!
