Ive been a reader of this site for a while now, never posted though. I just have a couple of questions. I have fished the red in fargo 5 times in the last two weeks but have yet to catch a single thing. Ive tried everything. Anybody been catchin anything and if so where and how? Ive fished the north dam in moorhead but i am interested in the oxbow and christine dams. Does anyone know if you can get to the christine dam or do you have to ask permission. I went to the oxbow dam but the shoreline is just to rough to fish, is there any way to get there from the minnesota side. Thanks in advance for any help and I would like to compliment whiskers and everybody who helps run this great site!!!!

BCM, I've been snooping too and I've had the same luck as you. It's still a little early, but stick to it and things will get going pretty soon. As soon as the ice is gone I'll be putting my boat in and hitting the deepest holes down from the dams and other traditional spring spots. I'd imagine the fish will move up to their spring hide outs in the next week or two, barring a major weather change. A little rain might delay things a little bit, but probably would be a good thing given the overall low water conditions (even though all the rivers are rising right now). I don't want to see river levels as low as they have been the last couple years- no fun!
Christine- need permission on the ND side. I don't think you can access it anymore on the MN side. Used to be able to, but last I heard the MN side is "No Trespassing" these days.
Keep at it- you'll be happy you did.

Hey Bigcatman.. justs be patient, the fish will come.. LOL LOL.. That is soooo easy to say isn't it.. I hear ya.. Im on that same page every year.. This last month between ice fishing and open water is torture on us all..

Just keep plugging away.. When the waters settle down and the fish start to feed it will all be worth it...

      Unfortunately that’s the norm at just about every popular community spot on lakes/rivers. I fished the zumbro river this past opener, and filled up the back of my truck with discarded bottles and cans. While litter certainly isn’t pretty to look at, it doesn’t mean the river is polluted.

      There is a new scale introduced this year by Rapala and it is better than the other ones because of one simple change: instead of the metal hook there is a clip.  This is what they use in tournaments.  It has a locking mechanism that hooks to the lower jaw.  The hook sucks.  Always has, always will.  Sticking a metal hook up inside the gills of a fish to weigh it is a terrible idea, plus they can shake off and then smack on the floor and die.  Skip the hook, use the clip.

      Both types of minnows are working. Crawlers are still getting most of our fish in some locations. Cliff

      Guys what I was trying to say with my last post was, That I was in the wrong place, Because this is about Vermilion Lake. If you scroll to the top. Under that blue strip you can find the topic of this form It says Quote "Vermilion-Pelican Lake-Chisholm-Cook-Ely-Eveleth-Hibbing-Orr-Virginia Fishing Reports  Water Level"  That's how I know I'm in the wrong Place!    -Best of luck Fishing.

      You guys catching them on pike suckers or chubs?  Hopefully the wind dies down this afternoon.  Coming up with a big group to help me do the docks and 2 of the hoists.  I have the requisite adult beverages need to get them some fish for the frying pan.

      I've been using the "modern step" scales for about a year now. I bought them on Amazon. They have very good reviews, and the scales are very convenient and suitable for weighing anything.  Here is the link https://www.amazon.com/Professional-Accurate-Reloading-Modern-Step/dp/B01N25OC6P/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1536218450&sr=8-1&keywords=fish+scale

      The Vermillion south of MSP is spelled with two "l"s. The one in this forum only has one.

      It's always nice when you have a week to get everything nicely packed, organized and ready to go. 🙂 It's just that few hours when you get home tired and dump it all in a big dirty pile to sort out that suk! 😆   Gook Luck!
