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.

Eddy, the tournment at Selkirk is July 23 and 24th. I U need a phone # I will look one up for you. The fishing is still OK. 23 kitties today with 2 rods. There were several in the mid 20 range. Sure nice to see sumo kitties.

      I don't see ice going out til April. Some more 50 degree temps on the way, but still getting near or below freezing most nights and an extended forecast I saw is showing highs around 30 and even some single digit lows at night for the last couple weeks March. Little if any rain too.

      Looks like there's plenty of ice still in Spring Bay! Kids snowmobile racing.

      My wife is in total agreement with yours. I love the quiet and remoteness, my wife hates the ice travel!

      There aren't a lot of cabins in the bay to begin with, a whole other bonus! For the folks on the south side of the bay, it's an access issue as well. People in general are less likely to go in the winter when you don't have road access, because now you introduce ice conditions, snow depth, darkness, cold, and other factors into the trip. While I have always enjoyed those challenges, it is much different to drive up on a Friday night and pull up to your place versus get there at 10pm, unload machines and gear, and go across the lake at night with gear in tow. I love it. My wife hates it. My daughter is in the middle.   Enjoy it up there.

      Being we had a few hours of weather cold enough to make ice I decided to check out one of the small shallow lakes in the St Cloud area.  Ice was in surprisingly good shape this morning, had about 6-7 inches of hard ice again.   Found a pretty decent bite in 8-11 ft of water.  Crappies were riding high in the water colom while sunfish remained close to the bottom for the most part.  Best bait for me was a 3mm motoroil/chrome with a impulse mayfly. By mid afternoon we could definitely tell the ice wasn't as firm as it was in the morning. By the time we left at 4pm I had put all thoughts of returning tomorrow morning out of my mind.  At no point did I feel unsafe, we were prepared for whatever, floatation suits, ropes and ice picks at the ready😏😁.  Today was definitely my last day on the ice for the yr...next stop, spring carp/suckers😁   VID_20240229_150704553.mp4

      Just trying to make as little noise as possible once holes have been drilled.

      I take my sxs all the way down Phillips Rd. road to Cains driveway and turn around at the entrance to Laura's and her son's Brian's driveways, Brian bought Davey Crockett's old place.(I think that was his name). You see them fishing on his dock at the beginning of the narrow part of the channel heading in Black Bay. They have the only 2 driveways that are plowed during the winter down Phillips Rd. My neighbor, whom you met, used to plow his boat house road so we access the lake easier in the winter for ice fishing, but he doesn't ice fishing much anymore, so just sleds down that road. I think I know who lets you access the lake, nice of him. I'm surprised more people in Black Bay don't use their places in the winter. I'm heading up in the morning!

      I drove on I-35 over Albert Lea Lake on Jan 5. It wasn't even partially frozen, and it's like 6-8 ft average depth or something like that. Those lakes in Sourthern Minnesota didn't even get 2 months of ice this year.
