Hi everyone,

I was just wondering if there are any Catfish Tournaments on the Red River that I don't know about. I fish Cats Incredible and the Drayton Catfish Tournament every year. I absolutly love fishing Catfish Tournaments, unfortunatly these are the only two I know of on the US side of the Red. I do know about the Catfish League, but can't get over there on Wednesday Evenings. I fished the Catfish Leagues Saturday Tournament last year, that was lots of fun, but don't know when or if they are doing it again this year?

If anyone can let me know if there are more Catfish Tournaments on the Red, or if the Catfish League is going to have another Saturday event this year, please let me know!

Thanks much...

There is one ramping up on the Canadian end for I think late July. Canuck and/or Stu may be able to help you with the details.

This is different then the old "Cats Classic" held at "Cats on the Red", but it may be a good one to try. I had a blast at the tournaments up North in the past. I may consider entering in this new event yet, still pondering it yet?

Yes Eddy there is one out of Selkirk the latter part of July. I will get U the dates and post them. I will NOT be entering it, I LOVE cat fishing as you know but when it comes to competition I will BACK RIGHT OFF, I got burnt a few years back and now just want to have FUN. I have nothing against any fishing tournment and will not trash them but I want to keep it FUN and FUN it is.

Sorry, I can't make it out for sturgeon the next week or so as I am on 'forced' (tough life but one must do what one must) to be on the Red at Lockport the next 6 days straight. The sturgeon are on right now and hopefully with all the flow they will keep biting for the next month or so.

      There is a new scale introduced this year by Rapala and it is better than the other ones because of one simple change: instead of the metal hook there is a clip.  This is what they use in tournaments.  It has a locking mechanism that hooks to the lower jaw.  The hook sucks.  Always has, always will.  Sticking a metal hook up inside the gills of a fish to weigh it is a terrible idea, plus they can shake off and then smack on the floor and die.  Skip the hook, use the clip.

      Both types of minnows are working. Crawlers are still getting most of our fish in some locations. Cliff

      Guys what I was trying to say with my last post was, That I was in the wrong place, Because this is about Vermilion Lake. If you scroll to the top. Under that blue strip you can find the topic of this form It says Quote "Vermilion-Pelican Lake-Chisholm-Cook-Ely-Eveleth-Hibbing-Orr-Virginia Fishing Reports  Water Level"  That's how I know I'm in the wrong Place!    -Best of luck Fishing.

      You guys catching them on pike suckers or chubs?  Hopefully the wind dies down this afternoon.  Coming up with a big group to help me do the docks and 2 of the hoists.  I have the requisite adult beverages need to get them some fish for the frying pan.

      I've been using the "modern step" scales for about a year now. I bought them on Amazon. They have very good reviews, and the scales are very convenient and suitable for weighing anything.  Here is the link https://www.amazon.com/Professional-Accurate-Reloading-Modern-Step/dp/B01N25OC6P/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1536218450&sr=8-1&keywords=fish+scale

      The Vermillion south of MSP is spelled with two "l"s. The one in this forum only has one.

      It's always nice when you have a week to get everything nicely packed, organized and ready to go. 🙂 It's just that few hours when you get home tired and dump it all in a big dirty pile to sort out that suk! 😆   Gook Luck!

      Good luck and many the ducks fall after you shoot!!

      For all the stuff I thought I had at my fingertips to pack, I sure am taking all week to get it done!  At least I have all my supplies.  I just keep tinkering on this and that, not getting it bagged up!   Leaving tomorrow morning around 9 and should have the entire afternoon to scout our top areas.  We’ll land somewhere in the northern third of the state.
