One word comes to mind for the catfish bite the past couple weeks, CHALLENGING. The spawn is in full swing and it seems that nearly all the fish went to the nest at the same time. As always, there are fish to be caught but we have to work a little harder to find them. The best spots have been tight to structure for smaller fish with the bigger fish being very close to a drop off or areas of current. Sit times have been 25-35 minutes to let the bigger fish find the bait and decide to bite it. One good tactic has been to change from circle hooks to regular J style hooks and be quick on the hook set for the shorter bites. Bait has been try it all and see what is working at any given time. Stink baits have been working great for smaller fish.

This weekend is the 3rd Scheels Boundary Battle Catfish Tournament. Even with the less than stellar report many fish will be caught and weighed in this event that brings out some of the best anglers in the area and beyond. We still have a few spots remaining if you wish to fish. For more information and to enter call Brad Durick 701-739-5808

Join us for the weigh ins, Saturday about 2-3pm at the Whopper John Little (north) Boat Landing in Grand Forks and Sunday at LaFave Park in East Grand Forks. Awards to follow on Sunday.
