Just returned from my first "fix" on Catfish for the year, Outstanding! this is our sixth year going for the Kitties at this premier river system, it never ceases to amaze me, thats what I like about river systems is the constant change that goes on and the challange of figuring things out. This trip we were faced with high water, and a very fast flow, all curtains up! debris on the move, so keep your eyes open if you go. It took us awhile to figure some things out and once we did the cats cooperated, about a 100 of them between 2 boats, most of them "sumos" Suckers worked the best for us.Its always a learning experience for us here.
Saw Canuck and Rob, local guides just hammer the fish, these guys are good.
I can hardly wait till the next trip, this is catfishing at its finest! As usual accomodations at Stu"s "Cats on the Red" work for us just fine, Stu, didn't get a chance to shoot the breeze this time, next time!

Shefland: Real sorry we didn't get to chat when U were up. PLEASE next time U are coming up let me know and hopefully we can BS on shore etc.

That goes for anybody else on this board that is coming up to Lockport. I would love to meet UALL in person.

Glad U got on to those kitties. It takes a little to scope out their haunts and as U say they are always changing with the weather and river flow etc. I really liked your partners boat.

Hey Shef....sorry we never got the opportunity to " chew the fat", running a camp can be demanding at times. On your next trip we should plan a barbeque up on our new deck or if you know where to get your your hands on a mess of "gills" I'll be glad to share my favorite batter recipe.
Glad you enjoyed your trip! This old river and the catfish that call her home have been entertaining the masses for many generations. These days, the greatest pleasure I get is talking to those that truly appreciate this resource.....I never get tired of listening to those disrcibing their interpretation of their experiences and battles with Ol'whiskers!

See you next time!

Fish Hard!

      I need to hit Linwood up as that is a lake I fished so much with my grandpa. Used to get lots of keeper gills and nice crappies and big pike out of there.

      Lakes around Princeton are froze over or close. Lori lake had the most open water and lots of ducks. Silver lake capped over and stanchfield south and north mist froze over.

      I saw enough ice on smaller lakes in the Crosslake area to know they are getting closer and colder to icing over!

      On the main basin... For those fishing the lake, fishing has been good.  Most bays and harbors locked up with ice this past week, which has put a halt to the open water fishing.  At last report, there are good numbers of walleyes and saugers staged in traditional early ice locations across Pine Island and the entire south shore.  With fish location, numbers and fall success, LOW is primed for good early ice fishing. On the Rainy River... The Rainy River is still loaded with walleyes.  Some anglers made it out this week but single digits locked up any water not moving and it is pretty much done.  Anglers that got out had big numbers of walleyes to reward them, similar to previous week.  Up at the NW Angle... Ice is formed in back bays, harbors, on the angle inlet, from Young's Bay to Flag Island and across most of Flag Island flats.  Larger stretches of water or current areas still open.  Ice fishing will be here soon, but not yet.  Stay on staked resort ice trails when ice fishing begins.  Safety first.

      I am a maki mino guy the 1 inch ones for gills and crappies. The xl mino is great for big crappies perch and eyes. I have used many of the maki plastics but I tend to have the best luck with white with red flakes mino. The poli was good as well.

      I bought the inferno with yellow guide wraps last year for a walleye rod.Good rod,good feel however after a month and a half of using it the top guide developed a cut in it from the line(I use 6lb suffix mono only).I emailed tucr they said bring it in and we will see what we can do.I wanted to see if they could put a different tip on it but they said they wouldnt do that and they gave me another inferno of the same model.I used it for the last month of the season and guess what? The top guide has a cut in it again.I realize these are a cheaper rod than their top of the line however I have other rods I have used for many years and payed much less for that have no cuts/slices in any of the guides.Seemed like they were trying to upsell me to a better rod with better guides.Why would i spend 55$ on a cheaper rod to find out its junk then give them double that for what they say is a better rod.They have nice rods but they lost my business 55$ for a rod that didnt last a season isnt going to get me on their bandwagon.

      Congrats! That doe is a trophy! Very nice deer and sounds like a great hunt. Cool to be able to be able to track deer on camera and then connect with them later on.
