I'm planning on a trip to the Red in North Dakota or MN (closer to canada border).
Catfish Haven is wanting to charge $40 a head/ night which is WAY too much for a fishing trip for a family of 6-8.

Is there another location or resort that is more reasonable and provides cabin style accomodations for 6-8 people?

Also... I've heard water levels are high and possibly at flood stage... is this true?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Yep that is a good rate. The water is a bit high but the cats are eating good.

I dont think you guys are following me here:
$40 per person, per night, no matter what age.
There would only be 4 addults and 2 kids and 1 infant.

They are wanting $40 for the kids and infants also.

That's almost $300 per night.
Which is outrageous.

Thats very high in my book. I just called the Holiday in Grand Forks and got a rate of 50 to 55 per night for a room for four. Now maybe its cheap because they don't have their pool working until Sept. But if you up for fishing who cares. From 40 per head and $320.00 toptal per night in a cabin to$50.00 per night for four. I would have no problem driving for that much savings. Just my thought. Good luck and let us know what you plan on doing and how your trip went.

River was high and is going down very nive. It is back in side its banks and is in fishing condition.

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂

      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.

      Gulp crawler.  In the spot the walleyes were going in there was a pile of 3-5" perch that tore up the real crawlers.   Gulp crawlers took care of the issue and the eyes liked them too.
