Looks like spawn time here in Fargo. I haven't been out a lot, but struggled when I did. Reports from others have been very poor over the past few days. With the forecast we have for the upcoming week, I'm hopeful that things will pick up by the middle-end of next week. Then it's cattin' time here in Fargo!

went out this afternoon, and hooked two sumos that broke my line, they had to have been enormous. landed a 12-15 pounder, 5 pounder, 1 16 inch walleye, and 2 baby kitties. still had the spots. The water is pretty dang high right now, but there is a good bite going on.

Plan on going out again tomorrow sometime in the afternoon..

good luck..

The spawn is just coming to a close. With the warm temps this weekend fish are starting in on the chew. A buddy of mine was out this weekend and did much better than last week. I'd think by the end of the week things will get going pretty good. Next week things will be cooking for sure.

Sounds like its time to get to rods out! Are they still biting on cut bait or is it time to get some frogs out? I will have to definetly get out in the next couple of days!

It's the time of year to start snooping for frogs. Post spawn cats typically means frogs are the go to bait. However, for the next week or so it might be either or both. Experiment and see for yourself.

Anyone been out froggin? I haven't been, but will be soon. I did see a mess of tadpoles this past weekend, but no hoppers yet. Are they out in numbers or is it a week or so too early?

      I had a good opener, also with ten. We should have taken a lot more, but shooting, jitters, and other factors prevented it (as usual). For us, Sunday was really slow, but still managed to bag a few.

      That's a good idea thanks.

      We love it when we catch a muskie, but it can be such a grind!

      Just got back from five days on the lake. We were fishing for walleye in the end fun with limits already taken. We are on an island and the dock bite was very good. Slip bobbers with either rainbows or chubs. Also, walking the island and casting tubes was also productive for larger walleye. Off the point of the island, under dock, near rocks. I guess that means we caught most of our fish shallow. Wind was our friend, to a point. Didn't like some of the gusts but wind blown shore and points were key. Follow the wind.   Smallmouth were not shallow. We did work some shoreline but did not find those fish up shallow. We did run into some smallmouth on the points, etc deeper while fishing for walleye.

      I had a good opener.  Two friends and I got 10 ducks and with some better shooting we could probably had 12 or 13.  It was significantly better than the last two openers and certainly better than I expected.  We had nice mixed bag of wood ducks, mallards, teal, and even got a shoveler.  It was very comfortable out there too.  Was nice not to sit there and roast away in my chest waders this time.

      If that is a new 2018 rig I would call the MFG and see what they think?  If you have a warranty on it, that may invalidate it?

      We have been up since Saturday and all we got are small walleyes.  Very windy today.  Hope wind goes down

      Quite a bit slower today. Only saw 2 teal between yesterday and today, which  really surprised me and most of the wood ducks seemed to have moved on. Didn’t stick around long enough for the geese. Hope everyone had a great weekend and good luck!

      How is it going today

      Carp30, Vermilion is starting into the fall transition period now that the water is cooling down. The bite can be either great or tough during this period. Yesterday we caught walleyes as deep as 44' and as shallow as 10'! Location and time of day is the key! We caught walleyes deep using short snell Lindy rigs,( 2 ft.), with minnows, The shallow walleyes hit best on the same rigs using 1/2 crawler. Sand and rock mix or transitions are the key areas right now. Necked down areas that have deep water and adjacent sand flats are almost always good now. Cliff
