I've been told by many people that the maple dam is done for the spring....I guess it peaked during the middle of last week? Warden Sunday said nobody has been catching much. (All hearsay, then again....when isn't it )
We got sick of "waiting" on our dams and moved downriver last night (Red). Didn't get out until 45 minutes before sundown. Needless to say I wish we'd gotten there sooner. We picked up 4 walleyes, the first one within a minute of putting out my line. Missed a heck of a lot more. When the sun dropped the catfish took over.
Hopefully we'll be able to get out there again tonight before the rain hits.
I have been fishing the Red in the Wahpeton area since ice-out and have done very well. Each time I go out I catch at least 5 eyes. I go down to the river when ever I get a chance. I also caught alot of nice fat Northern Pike before they spawned out.
