Boat in the background is registered in OK. Not impossible obviously, but seems a little strange?

My understanding is that whether or not you need a filter depends on whether your hose has a regulator on it or not. One hose has a regulator on the tank end and a quick connect on the other. The other type has no regulator and threads into the heater's built in regulator. The latter type requires a filter because the high pressure in the hose can force debris into the heater. The hose with the regulator at the tank doesn't have that problem because the pressure in the hose itself is too low. Again, this is my understanding. I do think the regulated hose is the better option. The only drawbacks are the potential for the tank mounted regulator to freeze if the tank is outside in very cold weather, and the time it takes to purge the air out of the hose on the initial light up.

Thanks for the heads up! I might have to buy some more pork.

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.
