Fishing Tips

Gear considerations for Red River catfish
Be absolutely sure to use good strong wide gap hooks in bronze or stainless steel. Be sure to consider hook sizes of at least 3/0 with hooks as large as 6/0. Depending on the bait you use, hook size and shape will vary. Consider "circle hooks" as an option for anglers who don't have a lot of experience "hooking up". We separate our main line from our hooks with a leader in mono of 40# strength or greater. In some instances this mono leader can be broken when a hook becomes lodged in some immovable underwater object. A leader also allows us to put a swivel in-line allowing us to avoid knot breaking line twist that comes from fighting the Red's giant catfish.
Bait Considerations through the summer season on the Red River
A variety of bait is essential for success at different times through the summer. Undoubtedly prawns will work at any time but fishing with what is in the system will make a difference on those days when fish may be negative or not interested in your bait. Goldeye, suckers, frogs, crawlers in addition to large shrimp/prawns are all options as bait on the Red River when fishing for catfish. Having said the prior does not preclude the possibility of using prepared baits or even crankbaits. Depending on the time of the summer smart/successful anglers won't just be fishing one place with one type of bait.
Location, Location, Location (is almost everything) For Red River and Winnipeg River winter Walleye
Knowing locations on the Red River and the Winnipeg River can really can make or break any Fall Greenback fishing trip. Structure and depth are two key components to unlocking the location puzzle. Fall presents an ever changing dynamic environment and as such a certain amount of flexibility can make a good day turn into a banner day. If you have mapping capabilities it might be a good idea to get to know your areas for those "spots on a spot".
