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.

      bump give ice reports if you can. just don't go on any ice to give a report, be safe.   I know my 300 acre lake in aitkin froze  over last weekend, but ice depth could vary greatly this time of year.
    • Fishing Frenzy
      Anyone know of the lake is froze over? Or how much ice is on the lake if it is?

      I’ll be out looking tomorrow... Have a spot in mind that I’m optimistic about. Which direction from downtown were you?

      Got the hangers today and really like them. I did have to drill a slot so they would work but easy peasy. The metal can be bent a bit to get the angle wanted. Moved the turkey fans to a different room and centered the 3 euros. I like the way it ended up.     New Age Taxidermy Head Honcho European Mounts on Amazon Smile

      The holidays are coming to the Governor’s Residence! Foresters from the Department of Natural Resources and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota harvested the official state Christmas tree Nov. 16 from the Nemadji State Forest. The tree, which is approximately 60 years old, will decorate the Governor’s Residence in St. Paul. “This year’s tree is absolutely gorgeous—tall, full, and almost perfectly shaped,” said Jean Mouelle, the DNR forester who selected this year’s tree. “It’s an impressive example of a balsam fir.” Each year, DNR staff chooses the Governor’s Christmas tree from one of Minnesota’s 59 state forests. Although the tree is always harvested on the Friday before Thanksgiving, the search for the perfect tree begins months beforehand. DNR foresters keep an eye out for a tall tree that’s nicely shaped and well filled out. The tree also needs to be in a location where it will not be damaged when dropped, and where foresters can easily remove it from the forest and load it onto a trailer. The tree will be set up at the Governor’s Residence, 1006 Summit Ave., St. Paul, at 9 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 19, and lit Monday, Nov. 26. Information about viewing the tree can be found at www.mn.gov/admin/governors-residence/tours/schedule. Half a million Christmas trees are harvested from private tree farms in Minnesota each holiday season, contributing about $30 million to the state’s economy. For each tree harvested, one to three trees are planted. Real Christmas trees provide an environmentally friendly decorating option during the holidays because they store carbon during their lifespan and can be chipped for mulch when the season is over.

      Should get the hangers today and will post info. I see that mountain Mikes has them also. Built to fit in the hole in back. The ones I ordered are for the bone skull so hopefully, dont have to send them back. Just got Marks done.  16 inch inside. Mine is 15 1/4. Not monsters but pretty neat. Marks biggest so far.

      I typically mount with a wire hidden behind the brain cavity routed through holes in the plaque to a screw behind the plaque.   Curious about this angled hanger, it tilts the nose of the skull away from the wall? Do you have a link? I like that idea, might have to rig something up when my euro is ready.

      Was around both lakes yesterday and they appear to be locked up. Shouldn't be long now.

      I hate when I am walking back to vehicle and they have roosted partway and I didnt know it, then they explode and I freak. LOL

      Bow hunting the other day I had a flock of about 20 come in at last light to roost in a nearby tree. No way a deer was going to come in with all that racket! It was kind of odd to see them hop from tree to tree but at the same time cool to see! Graceful and quiet they were not!
