Thanks Brad. On Saturday, "that spot" was a straight section of river, in the channel itself, about 12-14' deep. We parked there because there was a fallen tree, but we didn't catch any near the tree itself, all were either on the edge of the channel or right in it. Maybe someone else can recreate that pattern, we could only find them in that one spot.

We tried frogs, crayfish and cut goldeye, but all the fish were caught on cut creek chub.

As for team alliances, Grand Forks certainly is enemy territory for me. I've got quite a few shirts that say "Minnesota" or "NDSU", but I wouldn't be caught dead in UND wear!

I fished the river Saturday as planned. I launched at the Whopper John Little Landing, on the North side of Grand Forks, as Brad's response came after I launched. We got on the water about 7:30 and fished until about 1:30. Fishing was pretty slow. We only managed 4 cats between the three of us. We probably tried 10-12 different spots, but caught all our fish in one spot, 3 of the 4 fish in the span of a half hour. So outside of that spot and that window, it was pretty dead. That said, we had fun and caught some nice fish. It was fun to try something different, and I'll certainly return again in the future.

Thanks for keeping us informed on this unique fishing opportunity. I'm towing the boat 100+ miles on Saturday to the Grand Forks area to intentionally try for catfish for the first time. I'm not familiar with the area. Is there are particular access you'd recommend using as a starting point? Is is worth the extra drive to Drayton or in the Grand Forks area just as good? Any other recommendations for a rookie? Thanks!

On my Elite 5 you choose "Return to Vessel" from the chart settings to have the map scroll.


What he said. If you move the cursor manually, it goes into a sort of "cursor mode" where it doesn't track with you. If you push "menu" the option at the very top is "return to vessel" which means the map tracks with you. Simply push "menu" then "enter" and you're good to go.

Thanks for the reminder! I would have forgot and I don't think the stockpile would've made it through the summer.

Anyone care to give a deeper explanation of the spring cycle on Rainy River for greenhorns like me? I'm not even sure what you mean when you say the "forks broke" or "it's the dam." I realize it has something to do with tributaries and thaw and the river getting muddy, but I'm not sure how it all works or in what order these events typically happen. Maybe someone would be willing to explain the typical order of operations for the spring thaw on the river? I attached a couple pics of fish I caught up there last week, just looking to learn more about an awesome fishery. Thanks in advance.

My brother, an avid goose hunter, says it's a Canada-domestic hybrid.

The consensus seems to be that traction control will be more of a hindrance in deep snow than a help. Thanks guys.

Traction Control?

So yesterday as I was driving around on Red Lake in search of fish (mostly in vain) I got to wondering: am I better off with the traction control on or off? I recently purchased a 2007 Ford Expedition with multiple 4x4 modes as well as a button that deactivates the traction control. Prior to this, I've not had a 4x4 with traction control. I've heard you want to turn off the traction control if you're stuck and want to rock the vehicle, that makes sense. Obviously you're better off with it on when you're driving around on slick roads, but not in danger of getting stuck. But what about driving around on the lake in deep snow, when you aren't stuck and you'd like to keep it that way, traction control on or off? Ford owners, what 4x4 setting would you prefer in this scenario?

Fished Red yesterday from 11am-6pm. Went out of Boondocks to Center bar. Set up the portable and fished an hour or so, no marks, no bites, nothing. Loaded up the house and drove around, fishing from the truck. Tried about 5 more spots, spread over maybe a mile radius, ranging from 11-15ft deep. Still no marks, no bites. Finally about 3:30 we started marking a few. Set up the house and caught 3, all within a half hour on either side of sundown. After that, the marks disappeared again and we headed out. Pretty slow day fishing, heard the same from a few others. Beautiful weather though!
