Went out at 6pm. Got back at 11:30. No bites until 10 o'clock. Then the catfishing was fast and furious. 1 15 incher, 3lber, 5lber, and an 8lber. Cut goldeye seemed to work pretty good. All in all fun night. Fish fry tomorrow!! Oh, goldeye are biting like crazy on a bobber and nightcrawlers.Read more

Took my son out over the Labor Day weekend and we hauled in 3 nice cats. They were somewhere between 25 and 30 inchies. If I had to guess the largest of the fish was about 10 Lbs. Also caught half a dozen smaller cats. Caught all of them on chicken liver sprinkled with garlic to add a little more stink. We release the three bigger cats, so hopefully someone else can enjoy caughting them as...Read more

 ah turtle river you spoil thee with your plenty. kept 3 cats (2 23 inchers and a 24), had 3 more on the line (what seemed to be a couple more 23 inchers and a 28 incher, would have let that one go anyway) but they broke off right at the hook just as I was about to grab them (no net, big mistake), also 3 goldeye and a bullhead, all came on crawlers on slip sinker rigs about 50 yards down from...Read more

Fun day on the river. Caught a 3lb Cat (tasty!), 2 smaller cats (1 channel one bullhead), and three goldeye (in freezer for bait). Catfish was caught on dough bait, while the other fish on crawlers. No action whatsoever with chicken livers. Read more

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...Read more

 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. Read more

 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.Read more

 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....Read more

 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...Read more

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. Read more
