My what a difference a few days can make. We went from sluggish slow fishing with a big fish from time to time to GAME ON! Big fish biting fast and often. Right now, the fish are on fire and what the bait is really does not matter.
With that the water has come up some from Grand Forks and north meaning there is a lot of current and floating debris so you will want to be very careful with that. The best areas to fish are out of the current like on the back of inside corners. The fish are running the break lines there. You will need at least five ounces of weight to hold.
It appears the spawn in over or at least on hold for now. Many fish are out and willing to play. Take advantage.
