Red Lake River cats are on the feed.

Recommended Posts

Well in the last few days the cats are turning on very well. I have been down on the river and pulled in up to 30+ cats already in one sitting. Most average in the 5# area but some bigger ones are showing up also. The kitties eat well from about noon to 6:00 pm. After that you might as well head home. Happy fishing.

Rusty, are you finding them up shallow in the warmer water, or typical "normal" locations. If I don't go over to Grand Forks to fish this weekend, I'm gonna go pick up some crawlers and try it here in town.

Looks like it's gonna be a nice weekend to hit the river.

I was thinking of heading over to Grand Forks to do some Cat Fishing this weekend, but it all depends on how high the water is, and if I can get my boat in the water easily. But who knows, I might go to Lake of the Woods or Upper Red lake since it's opening weekend...

What are you doing this weekend? I'm probably gonna be fishing by myself, if you want to go fishing let me know.

Talk to ya later

      As crazy as that might sound, May 18th isn’t a bad guess.  We were on the lake yesterday and had somewhere around 30” of solid ice with some snow on top.  This is hard January-type ice.  No honeycombing, no chipping or slush.  In fact, my Dewalt hammer drill couldn’t take it.  It’s dead.   Another foot of snow on the way this week?  That won’t help.

      Try the area where Minnehaha Falls runs into the river up to the ford dam. I've just used jig and fathead. Been several years since I've fished down there, but saw a lot of people shore fishing there. Pretty snaggy down there.

      Never tried it down there, sounds like fun. Let us know how you did.  👍

      Entries sure rolled in when I offered the case of beer.  We could meet at my Stuntz Bay boathouse if that would work.  Close to the landing, could anchor in front of the boathouse, or could park your vehicle at by the boathouse.  Maybe we could require the winner to be present, LOL.

      Thinking about trying pool 2 (from shore) for the first time tomorrow morning, ideally looking for walleye. Anyone know any decent spots or what kind of baits I should use?   Thanks in advance

      I know the owner.  In fact we rode snowmobiles together a couple days after the fire.  He lost most of his belongings.  Sounds like it was electrical.
