My family and i made our weekend run to
Fargo-Moorhead. Mom and KIDS TO shop and me
to go cat hunting! Friday morning was very good as my 13 yr old son came wiht for the morning. We boated 13 cats by around 5:00 pm. started at 10:30am. Kind of slow from 12:30-3:00 then got a little action again later. The biggest was a 31" cat which is still swimming in the red! We had a blast and caught our goldeyes too! Saturday morning the girls had the fever for cats not for the mall so from 7:00am to about 11:00 am we had a great time with 9 cats the biggest a nice 34" er. what a great fish,happened to be my daughters friends first cat. i helped her wrestle it out of a snagpile and then she reeled it in! what a great fish! still swimming but great pictures. sat afternoon was a little slow but i mamaged to get 8 cats. it seemed the whole half of a sucker-6 inches was the best, not cut chunks of goldeye. i found frogs at home but not in time for the trip. all in all a great time with plenty of action. i put in at mb johnson park every day. is the ramp at the dam by main ave a good one as well? i haven't used it. Snagpiles large and small were good, but spot hopping was the order of the weekend for me. i will be back in the next 2 weeks probably alone always room for another pole in the boat! thanks red river for another good time(also west acres mall)

      Well I went out Sunday of opening weekend. Ugh. I felt like I was hunting the Congo! So darn hot and buggy. Thank god for thermacell! I did pass on a small 3 pt. It was fun to watch him, he was making rubs on trees all over around me. I'm actually glad nothing else came out, dealing with it in that heat would have taken a lot of fun out of the process.

      i've been up on Sandpoint a number of times that late in the year. I always focused on main lake drop off. especially sand if you can find it. Walleyes, big crappies and smallmouth will all be congregated in those areas. One spot I fished dropped off into 70 feet. I usually fished 20-30 ' depths oh, I should mention. Usually we used lindy rigs with minnows. Jigs did work too. especially if you slowly drop it and feel the strike on the fall.

      Unfortunately that’s the norm at just about every popular community spot on lakes/rivers. I fished the zumbro river this past opener, and filled up the back of my truck with discarded bottles and cans. While litter certainly isn’t pretty to look at, it doesn’t mean the river is polluted.

      There is a new scale introduced this year by Rapala and it is better than the other ones because of one simple change: instead of the metal hook there is a clip.  This is what they use in tournaments.  It has a locking mechanism that hooks to the lower jaw.  The hook sucks.  Always has, always will.  Sticking a metal hook up inside the gills of a fish to weigh it is a terrible idea, plus they can shake off and then smack on the floor and die.  Skip the hook, use the clip.

      Both types of minnows are working. Crawlers are still getting most of our fish in some locations. Cliff

      Guys what I was trying to say with my last post was, That I was in the wrong place, Because this is about Vermilion Lake. If you scroll to the top. Under that blue strip you can find the topic of this form It says Quote "Vermilion-Pelican Lake-Chisholm-Cook-Ely-Eveleth-Hibbing-Orr-Virginia Fishing Reports  Water Level"  That's how I know I'm in the wrong Place!    -Best of luck Fishing.

      You guys catching them on pike suckers or chubs?  Hopefully the wind dies down this afternoon.  Coming up with a big group to help me do the docks and 2 of the hoists.  I have the requisite adult beverages need to get them some fish for the frying pan.
