Hey all, I was finally able to get to Drayton and do some fishing this past Sunday, and boy was it slow. I fished from about 10:00am till 5:00pm and didn't catch any good cats. Whats up? I don't know if it's the same everywhere or just there? We finally decided to go to the other boat launch below the dam and caught a couple nice fish, but it was pretty slow there as well. Hows the bite been in Crookston or near Grand Forks? Is it just as slow or is it much better? Oh well, you're bound to have a couple of slow days fishing during the year!

Also if anyone is still wondering how the ramps are in that area, your good to go. They are in great shape to launch from.

Good Luck Fishing...

Hey Catman.........I can't speak for your portion of the Red but I can for mine! In a nutshell the lower Red has been and still is incredible!!
Even those that aren't well versed are enjoying some level of success, for those in the know the river is extremely productive! Lots of big kitties and also lots of high numbers.
If you've never been to this protion of the river do yourself a favor and head north you won't be disappointed!

Fish Hard!

      Saw on MPR that this year had been even warmer than 2012.  If this weather pattern continues, Lake V will be ice out before the March 28th date from 2012.

      Awesome fish. Way to go.

      That is a true giant slab around here.

      I did a lot of crappie fishing in 2012.   I'd say April 1 is a conservative guess. March 25 seems doable. Depends on the rain and the wind in March.

      Do you park at The Landing or have someplace closer? That would be a hall from The Landing!

      I hate to start this thread early, but this ice doesn't have much of a chance this season. It's about half as thick as it should be, there is no snow cover to protect it from the March sun, and it continues to be abnormally warm. Let's hear those ice-out predictions.   I expect the smaller bays to be open by the last weekend of March with the main lake soon after, likely prior to April 1st. Earliest ice-out on record is March 28th, 2012.   On the plus side, the spawn be done long before fishing opener. Combine the reduced walleye harvest with the longer growing season, and this should translate into a better walleye class for the lake.

      I walked into my place late Friday night. It was beautiful - a full moon, no snow and single digits so the lake was making all kinds of noise, wolves howling, and the kicker.....no wind. The only difficult component to walking was the ATV and snowmobile impressions left in the ice. Every once in a while my foot would catch a rise in the ice and I would stumble and almost fall. Besides that, it was a perfect night. Unfortunately I had a schedule to keep, otherwise I would have started a midnight bonfire to stay out and enjoy the evening even longer.
