Hi guys, I went down to the Red Lake River in Crookston This past Saturday. This was my first trip to the area for cats. I went with a buddy of mine and didn't do to bad. We caught lots of little cats (2-5lbs), we however didn't get anything very big. There sure are alot of little cats in that stretch of river. On almost every spot we set down on, we got a bite just about right away. So are the big fish in that area a little tougher to come by? or did I just not look in enough locations? We went all the way up to the dam in town with my boat and down river about 4 miles. We fished deep holes, shallow stretches, log jams, fast current, slow current, eddies, etc, etc. and still only small cats! Even though we didn't hook into any big fish it was lots of fun. I really like the looks of the river in that area.

Wiskers, I do believe I seen you in your fancy River Pro. We were the guys fishing in the Alumacraft. You were right, the ramp was in A+ condition. Very nice to launch from.

Talk to you later...Good Luck Fishing.

I have been fishing the river in Crookston for fun here lately. I don't have a boat so I'm fishing from shore. Last week I got one nice cat at 16 pounds 14 ounces and a person next to me acouple hours later got one that was bigger. There in there just have to weed out the little ones. Sunday we ended up with a nice stringer of eaters from the river. Key was Golden Eye's. If you didn't have golden eye's you didn't get fish. If you keep on fishing your bound to get something. Those little ones are still a lot of fun. I dont' know if Wiskers has been fishing lately but that's my two cents worth from shore.

Thanks for the info. I kind of fugured thats what it was. The little fish get to it quicker than the bigguns. I'm going to have to try it again soon, maybe slop on some bigger chunks of bait this time. Hopefuly keeping the small ones from stealing it as easily.

I have been out a lot down here and I have had the same results.. lots of small ones. Not sure where the big kitties are hiding? Perhaps they are getting ready to spawn. The water temps are about 65*. we were catching some big ones two weeks ago now its tons of 2-5#ers. It is a realy pretty river in this area. If you go up to the dam you can catch even more fish and faster.

see you on the water.

Yeppers I did see you guys on the river by the island.

      I know most of the bays have a couple inches of ice and guys are ice fishing. I would doubt the main lake is locked up but there could be some ice to deal with. Better off packing the boat away instead no huge warm up in site.
