Red River (North) - Wednesday, May 20, 2015

The red is way up from the last time I was out and current is way way up, like a normal spring at this time. No way to fish the main river and like always, tributaries are holding lots of fish. Any little out pocket without current can be a gold mine too (who knew their are good sized bluegills?). Finally found the walleyes lindy rigging from shore and they're post spawn skinny but incredibly aggressive and fun to catch.

 The bigger catfish are finally biting and it's fast and furious at sunset. The goldeye nail minnows then cut up the goldeye for tons of the 5lb+ range cats. I found that I needed smaller pieces of cut bait than I normally use in mid summer, and to make sure that they really take the bait before trying to set the hook.

 Fishing is getting better as it warms. Goldeye are ravenous and even the pike are joining in on twister tails. Still no walleye or catfish for me on the red this year yet, but came home with ticks. No mosquitoes yet, so I won't be complaining.

 went out from 6-9:30. Fishing was pretty slow. caught abunch of little cats. i was kinda hoping for a fat jucy goldeye for some cut bait, but that never happened...on the bright side i managed to catch 3 walleyes on crawlers right on the bottom. A 9 inch and two 11 inchers. the eyes started biting around 9. They were a real light bite, so you gotta let em take it in before you set the hook. all in all, a pretty fun night. BTW, water is still low and slow

 Went out on Saturday with my dad. I have been after walleye and perch for the last couple years, but went back to how we started fishing, for cats. Went to the first spot and the we're probably 6 or more cars there shore fishing. Went to the Seco d and the water was so low couldn't launch the jon boat. End up farther norther and found a spot to drop it it. Wefinally had line wet at about 530. Didn't take long and we wereally getting hits. Figured out the pattern And we were landing 12 in cats left and right. He want some to take home and smoke so we moved and ended up hooking in a couple decent ones. Ended up cathing probably 50 cats, 4 or 5 goldeye, a suckered and carp. Had 2 poles rigged for walleye, but only had one instance where my minnow was eaten in half. Was using a 1/2 Oz jig head tipped with a crawler. Had a plain hook with a minnow for the eyes.

Went with a friend to the river; had two poles with chicken livers and two with crawlers on jigs. Picked up a goldeye and a carp with the worms. Witnessed one small cat being caught, although I do not know what the guy was using for bait.

 Went shore fishing in Fargo for a bit last Saturday and was able to pick up two decent goldeye using worms on jigs and bobbers.

Went out yesterday afternoon to the north boat ramp and caught 2 goldeyes about 16 inches on a 2-4 ft sinking crankbait. Also caught a 26 inch 8lb walleye with a jig and mr twister tail. Lots of people out there and lots of snags. I prolly lost 6-10 jigs and so did a friend of mine.

 Went out on the Red on sunday night and had a lot of fun with active goldeye. Slip bobbers set at 2 feet + minnows with enough weight to keep them down just off the current yielded a lot of bites. Quite a few people were out and only one walleye caught in the 2 hours I was there. Things should get better as the water warms up this week hopefully.

Im heading out tomorrow for the first time this year. The water still looks pretty low. Is it even worth going out? Has anyone had any luck lately?

Well a couple times now I have tried to find some walters in the Red around Fargo.  So far I have found some rocks and leaves.  Was out last week pitching jigs, went out today at lunch and the water has dropped about 3 ft.
