Didn't know they planned on doing that one. Haven't even heard anything until I seen this post. I'll check around and see if I can find out anything.

I spoke to the folks at Riverkeepers here in Fargo and it sounds like Drayton isn't in the works for redoing. Apparently, there are forces at work that will fight it up there. Christine is next on the list. After that, I'm told plans haven't been laid out specifically beyond the fact that they'd like to have a clear waterway from South to North.

Well if that is the case, what is the purpouse of the thousands of $$ being put into the other rock dams along the Red??? Their main objective is allow fish to migrate.. well... If they dont do all of them then..... it appears to be all in vain.???

Hummmmmmm something seems to be amiss here.. Hope it gets worked out.

From what I gleaned from the conversation with River Keepers, they plan on doing all of them. It's just that they don't have a specific plan on any dams after the next one. Sounds like $$$ is the bottom line- they need somebody to pony up and the
state(s) are getting sick of being that somebody.

Thanks there Scoot. I guess I can live with it the way it is for awhile longer, I've been fishing there along that strech for so long I got her figured out pretty good by now. I kind of don't want to see it changed. Some of the worlds easiest fishing can be had on the Red river there for sure!!!

Scoot you gonna hit the pond on opener?

I don't know yet. I'll probably not fish on opener again this year. I get a lot of crap for not getting out that weekend, but it's amatuer weekend and I not mature and patient enough to wait/avoid/hide from all the once per year rookies. I guess I'm getting crochety in my old age. I should be up a week or two after that though.

Scoot, your talking old let me tell you a little something. Now I can't remember what I was going to type. Guess It just slipped my mind. See what happens when you get old.

      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
