Hows it going everyone? I am a new user to this site, and I think its pretty useful. Just a quick question, I had a pretty good spring fishing in the Fargo, Moorhead area for Cats. I had been using a lot of frogs and caught lots of big cats this spring on them. Lately it seemed that they have totally slowed down. Any suggestions from anyone?? Should I change bait? Are the big cats in this area yet?? Any comments will be great.

Welcome! With the high water, I'd suspect things have tapered off a tad bit on this end. I'd think they'd get going again very soon though. Another thought is for you to give other bait options a shot. I prefer cutbait during prespawn and frogs post spawn. Give cut goldeye or stinkbait a shot. Also, focus your hunting in the couple miles below the area dams. Snag piles and inside/outside bends seem to be the best. The best side of the bend seems to depend upon the day. Also, if all else fails, try spots where river grass hangs into the water.
I'd start with the cutbait though.

      I would love to test these out. But until Hunting season is over I may be a bit tied up.  😟

      Launching a new line of utility ropes (paracord, diamond braid and MFD) and looking to get feedback on them. You get the the product for free in exchange for a review. It's simple; private message me what item you would like to try and where you would like it shipped to. Once you get it please assess the product and leave a review of that specific part number on Amazon or Wal-mart. I am looking for 20  people to test them out. A few samples below. I look forward to hearing from you.

      I know most of the bays have a couple inches of ice and guys are ice fishing. I would doubt the main lake is locked up but there could be some ice to deal with. Better off packing the boat away instead no huge warm up in site.
