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!

      good news, I heard earlier that it was under consideration.

      Looking at the latest images, the lake looks pretty iced over... are there any areas of thin ice / open water to be found? Not looking to fish, need to test some safety gear with a group. Any river mouths open or areas between Duluth and Tettegouche?
    • Bigfatbert
      Yup !!   Also note the new one over change to 26”... it’s currently 28” 18”-26 must be immediately released , and one walleye over 26” may be included daily and possession. Kab , Namakan, Sand Point , Crane . These changes start on the 2019 opener .

      So after the 8” of snow the other day the lakes are a huge mess. I was out for a snowmobile ride yesterday and went to a lake not to far from home. I like to ride out there a couple times a week. So I made a loop around the lake and the snow was about knee deep but had no issues. I was just about ready to head home and checked out an area I like to fish. Well.... I jumped a plowed road bank and sink in about 1 foot of water and slush. I pinned my sled and barley crawled along about 50 years to dry snow. So my weekend plans of fishing are done. This was a smaller lake so I’m sure all lakes are impassable. I have what I think id a good ice fishing sled. A Polaris 600 with a 136” track never had an issue before but with all the snow and slush now there’s no way I’ll be able to fish. The snowmobile trails haven’t beeen grommed after the last snow and I’m getting sick of riding the ditches. Anyone else annoyed with all this snow now? Thanks Mother Nature I now have nothing to do this weekend! 😥

      Way to let "Quasimoto" go and perpetuate his/her goofy genes...  If I catch a bunch of funny-looking, humpy 13.5 inchers in the future, I'm blaming you! 😁  (...as opposed to the scrawny 9 inchers I'm lucky to catch...) Poor thing looks like it's gonna get stuck in the ice-hole!

      I usually keep my sonar unit in the house because I put it on the charger every time I get home. Just for fun, the next time it does it, I might try just warming up the transducer and sending it back down the hole to see what happens. Thanks.
    • BobT
      I didn't think of that! Probably should have glanced down the hole, eh?

      Just another reminder that walleye/pike season ends on Sunday too for inland waters.  Don't get caught targeting the wrong species of fish next week.
