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...

Nice to see you with us CAT.

      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.

      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
