Was out there last night for a club tournament. The lake itself is in bad shape. There is alot of top water weeds that is killing the fishing. For myself, and most of everyone else, we found all our fish still up in the shallows. We were fishing alot of pads with jigs, and had alot of luck. Monster fish, with a few smaller ones. All the other gus that fish deep, ended up with 2-3 fish for there bag.

We fished this lake earlier last year, and looking at it this year, man that lake gets out of control with the muck on the top.

I noticed there was a league out there last night. When you say monster fish how big are you talking?

The weeds are getting bad. I guess the head guy of the lake association doesn't think that the weeds are that bad. And he is not listening to anyone else that lives on the lake from what I hear. But something needs to be done regarding the weeds. Did you see a lot of dead fish? Or how do you know that the weeds are killing the fish?

Also, What kind of jigs do you use that are weedless for the shallows like that?

All i have to say is that guy must be sick, becuase that lake is horrible, and there needs to be something done to it to make it where it belongs. I remember when this lake was the bomb, and now going to it last night, was horrible.

I agree. I think the only way something will get done is if the homeowners get the DNR involved. If the lake association is not willing people will have to bypass them and go to the DNR I guess.

well i can tell you this. the lake is getting out of hand, and something needs to be done before it gets way out of hand. That is a great fishery, and i would hate to see it go bad.

      Went out to Otter Lake (next to Bald Eagle) on Wednesday, a lake filled with hammerhandles and could barely make out three small pike in the dirty water before giving up.  Was up on a lake in the Horseshoe chain that is also supposed to be filled with small pike and saw zero but the wife caught a small on a tip-up.  At least a big catfish came in and sat at the bottom of the hole for well over an hour.

      Only a few tiny ones..... Pays to get the hell away from the crowd...

      That’s a bucket list trip for me.  No reason that I haven’t been there yet outside of the fact it isn’t in my normal territory.  And that’s an ironic statement for me to make! Come to think of it, I should just plan it and go.  It’ll never happen otherwise.  Anybody got any pointers for heading that direction?  I wouldn’t even know where to start.  Pretty self sufficient for gear and travel and could figure it out eventually but a helping hand or even a guide reference would be appreciated.

      The ice is gone now. More than likely won't be anymore this year.

       that reminds me the batteries on that GPS tracker hid somewhere on your truck are running low. The red blinking light on the base unit here at home, sure has been annoying. Can't believe it showed you were out fishing in the wind, close to home anyway, today.

      Upper Red nears record winter harvest Ice fishing on Upper Red Lake has slowed in recent weeks, but the walleye harvest is on track to set or approach a wintertime record, numbers from an annual winter creel survey show. According to Henry Drewes, regional fisheries supervisor for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources in Bemidji, anglers through January had kept about 125,000 pounds of walleyes. The wintertime high for Minnesota's portion of the lake was slightly more than 140,000 pounds in 2015, DNR statistics show. Anglers harvested 109,327 pounds of walleyes in the winter of 2017, according to DNR creel survey results. "If we have an average February, we'll be right in that area" of 140,000 pounds, Drewes said. "Catch rates and pressure have really tapered off in the last (few weeks). I think that's related to winter fatigue and a slower bite." Wheel houses, which have exploded in popularity among winter anglers in recent years, now account for more than 80 percent of the ice fishing pressure on Upper Red, Drewes said. Anglers on Upper Red can keep four walleyes, of which only one can be longer than 17 inches. Walleye and northern pike season on Upper Red and other Minnesota inland waters closes Sunday, Feb. 25 and reopens Saturday, May 12. The Minnesota DNR manages 48,000 acres of Upper Red, while the remaining 72,000 acres are within the boundary of the Red Lake Indian Reservation and managed by the Red Lake Band of Chippewa. -- Brad Dokken Grand Forks Herald

      Same for me on Green by Princeton once it got dark the fish started biting. I was marking them and only had 4 bites while the sun was up. 
    • JBMasterAngler
      Was on North Center yesterday. Crappies were easy to find, but they would not bite for nothing! Somehow coaxed 2 into biting, so I avoided the skunkaroo. The vexilar began to light up more, and the fish began to move up and down the column a little bit more as evening progressed. So maybe, the bite would have picked up as the sun went down. However, by then, the kids were ready to leave, so maybe I’ll find out next time. On a side note, this was by far the thickest ice I’ve drilled through (30 to 32 inches) with my ion in the 3 years I’ve had it. Was impressed.
