Anyone done any catfishing recently on the river, specifically in the Elk River area?

I have been out the last few nights near Otsego, a bit up stream. The fishing has been quite good!

Belive it or not, I have been getting them on my fly rod. Other than that crawlers or cut bait should work fine. I like to start with crawlers and catch a redhorse and then cut that up for bait. Otherwise you could buy sucker minnows and cut them in half.

Sure, I have been fishing around ER. Have not had anything big to speek of yet, but soon they will start showing up. Last week from shore, all I could get them to bite on was crawler. The week before that, cut sucker. I will post if I get any hogs. Good luck!

I would assume all the way for channels. For flats I do not know.

      The water level is still low but will be coming up after the last heavy rainfall that we got! Cliff

      At the hunting shack we put up a pulley and run the winch cable from the 4 wheeler through it and hoist em up.

      ps I would be happy to provide closeups of particular areas or the insets on the map.    Especially if they are of your hot spots.

      It  Came today. At first glance it looks good.

      Note to self.  Keep your "Packers Suck" T-shirt in the fishing boat for all future fish pics.   Ties are like head butts, everyone loses.

      And this is why you ALWAYS check out FM. I had a crazy busy summer as I worked full time so my weekends and evenings I was always doing somthing and I never just sat down. So I just noticed I missed this great “ goodie” package. Darn! 
    • AlwaysFishing23
      A chain, a $20-$30 come-along and your set. Wrap chain around rafter hook up come- along and away you go. Been doing it this way for many many years without trouble.

      I'll say this. As a Vikings fan, Mrs. Skunked Again was pretty emotionally upset in the 2nd and 3rd quarters. She warmed up a bit when her team came roaring back in the 4th. I don't think either of us would have survived the four hour drive back to MN without a tie.
