catching - smoking goldeyes

Recommended Posts

I'd like to hear about it too. I know they occasionally get mooneyes through the ice on the St. Croix, but reliable Goldeye fishing would be awesome.

I saw a post by backwater ed here a while ago about catching goldeyes thru the ice.

I'd really like to catch a mess for smoking.
We get a few now and then in the summer when fishing the Red Lake river, and I was wondering how to locate/catch good numbers of them this time of year.

goldeyes are one of the most awesome tasting smoked fish. Similar to tulibee.
They are very popular in Winnipeg, where you can get fresh smoked Goldeyes in the smaller local meatmarkets and fish shops.

That guy from Fargo "Ed on the Red", I remember him posting sometime back about using glow devils or Bio Bait and catching goldeyes on The Sheyenne River somewhere near Fargo.

I really don't know where to point for winter goldeyes. I heard at a bait shop that guys have been seeing lots of Walleyes, cats, northerns, and Crappies on the Red near the Forks with their Aqua views but not getting any biters.

I think Lake Sakakawea is abundant with goldeye. According to the ND Game and Fish they have a problem with fishermen discarding them on the ice.

For all you guy's that have been sitting on the edge of your seats waiting for info on how to catch river goldeyes. The following is advice from Ed Carlson, (aka: backwater eddy)that he emailed to me.

"Look for deeper sharp bends then find the inside edge of the flow. Jig with a gold or gold glow Angel Eye JR tipped with a minnow head. Expect the Goldeye to be almost anywhere in the water colomn but start near the bottom. They like agresive jigging and watch for the hit as the spoon falls. They can be sneaky bugger Eh."

Thanks Ed. I'll be drilling and jerkin em up this weekend. I'll be sure to report. I sure am looking forward to a couple dozen brownsugar cured smoked Goldeyes.

    • Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future.  Also been looking at the A-crafts.  The 205 trophy.  Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now.  Good boat but its too light for big water.  Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's.  The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice.  Really impressed.  Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
    • I’ve never done anything with mine. I store it standing up and in the fall change the oil if I remember. Haven’t had any issues yet. 
    • I had problems with my 02. I found that the plug on the truck side going to the plug at the bumper was corroded. I hope that made sense I cleaned it up and put dielectric grease on it.    
    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever. 
    • Fleet Farm currently has Kingsford 15.4lb x 2 for $8.  About the same per pound as the summer sales.
    • We have a 6 year old Frigidare gas range and the ignitors on the top burners seem to be controlled by a ghost.  Sometimes one doesn't work, sometimes another.  Any ideas?   Thanks for your time. Tom
