I hate short bites! It seems the big fish are nearing the end of the spawn but not quite and they will hit the baits but not take the whole hook. Solution, get a bigger hook and thread the bait up onto the shank to make them take it. I am seeing post spawn female […]

Water temperature is at 70 just when the best fishing of the year should be commencing and there is nothing but heat in the forecast. This mean they will be going to the nest early this year, a whole two weeks early. At this point it has to just stay hot and make this short. […]

Happy 2023 Ramps around Grand Forks should be opening any day as the river has gotten below flood stage. Water levels are still dropping rapidly which is generally not good for catfishing but according to projections will level off late this week. Water temperatures are in the low 50s which is perfect. I suspect catfish […]

So far so good on the flooding front. We will see some but as of now not anything we can’t deal with to set up up for a good spring. The first half of the season is filling up but we do have some days left so act fast. The second half still has many […]

The 2023 season is starting to take shape. We have room in late May through September. Weekends and the first two weeks of June are getting tight. So far we are looking at light flooding in the spring with quite a bit of winter to go. I am feeling pretty good about everything right now. […]

Its February and the phone is starting to ring. If you are planning to fish with us in 2023 it might be a good idea to get your dates booked sooner rather than later.  So far the winter has put enough snow for water and no much flooding but there is still a lot of […]
