I sure wish I could help with this one there Scoot, but my temps aren't reading either on my depth finder. I do know that its still colder then it should be this time of year. Maybe trun around this weekend, man that would make for a nice Fouth. Whats your plans.

We got our temp guage working on the boat. Last night the temp of the Red was 67. Witht he forecast the way it is, cats should be spawning very soon as the water temps spike quickly this week.

Kent, I'll be at White Earth with Janna's crew. Sounds like you'll be headed to LOW. I wish I could be up there, but it's not in the cards for me. I'd guess you'll have some good fishing as the water temps increase over the next few days. Reports are good for yesterday and the day before.
Good luck!

River temps here are about 72-74 now.. However with the cold nights at only 50.. who knows what that will do to the temps and the spawn???? Man summer is never going to get here.. ...............

Well with the cold nights and all the rain the water temps here have dropped to 62*. However the cats are eating good now.. I went out last night with a couple buddies and we landed over 60 cats. in just a few hours.

Sounds very post spawn like, eh Wiskers? It'd be nice to see the fish on the chew really good for the weekend. Sounds like timing might be great.

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      Ive been out a few times as well..have tried from the harbor all the way up to boyscout...have been getting a few everytime out but has been slow for me....been trolling crawlers with big colorado blades..have caught fish on flats by barkers,between the bridges,and out from clyde area....got 6 cats accidentally while trolling boards by the community hole south west side of spirit lake...water clarity still sucks in the harbor..a bit better the farther up river u go...has it been kinda slow for everyone?????ive been doing better on fish lake.lol

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂

      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.

      Gulp crawler.  In the spot the walleyes were going in there was a pile of 3-5" perch that tore up the real crawlers.   Gulp crawlers took care of the issue and the eyes liked them too.
