Just starting to think about this years action. I have had a few people say they are interested again, but lets try to figure out how many we have. Rules will be the same as last year. Thinking about going to 2 overnight this year, but we will see what the majority wants to do. Hope everyone is ready to do some catin!

Here are the results from this years Cat League:



1st place Koerner $140

2nd place Bentson $80

$20 per night for biggest fish which is highlighted in green

I appreciate everyone getting their pics in this year timely (and right) and it was a lot of fun again as it has been in the past. Congrats Koerner on the win and very nice fishing! Congrats to Bentson, he caught more fish and would have won 1st if it wasn't for the "5 Fish Totals" that was implemented this year. There was a tie for largest fish with Grave and Becklund (ME) which really doesn't mean squat but still worth mentioning! Congrats again and good fishing!

Weather is always the biggest issue, but overall it was a fun time. Of course there was the issue of flooding this year also lol. I have already heard that most are interested in doing it again next year so looks like it will be a go again. I still think a MN river get together with the Belle Plain league would be a fun time...possibly some competition?

    • I’m in a similar situation right now and I am “freaking out” how did it work out for you what paper work did you file? Who did you reach out to?
    • Did someone pee in your charcoal 😁?
    • I like to see the fish that gets away verses not. A few weeks ago, I was trolling for walleyes on the SLR and while reeling one in, something grabbed a hold of it and fought hard for a while but chewed the walleye pretty bad. Trolled over the same are 20 minutes later and caught another walleye and this time it didn't let go and I saw what was eating my walleyes and it was a huge musky that got close to the boat and snapped the line and left with my crankbait and fish. So, the one I saw that "got away" was a cooler sight than the mystery fish that attacked my walleye that I never got to see earlier that day
    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme.
