    Yeppers...

    Fish it quite a bit in the summer months.

    Just got my registration in for the Cat's Incredible Tournament in Grand Forks. Lottery drawing is the beginning of March to fill the field of 150 teams.

    Also plan to fish the Red River Valley Catfish Club Tourney 2 weeks before the Incredible.

    And of course, a bunch of "fun" trips up there as well.

    My best trip last summer was 650lbs of cat (45 total) over 2 days. We had 5 cats at 20lbs and 1 at 21lbs.

    You don't have to be an expert to fish the Red. Dump you boat in, fish "fishy" looking structure, and you'll catch fish. Most fish are relating to outside bends (holes), some in the bumpy runs, and wood.

    Cut Sucker, Cut Goldeye, and Frogs are all good baits at various times of the year.

    If you are looking for big fish, fish Grand Forks area and north to the border.
