Jonah sorry I missed you at the shop today, my boy and talked to some other fellow behind the counter, kinda vauge with his directions. But my boy and I found the lake, with no problems. What a beautiful lake that is, love the water color and clarity. It was really capping out there, but we managed to pull in 7 nice eyes, and some of ther pesky rockbass.

I appreciate the willingness to help, the other local bait store was not as customer friendly. You have a new customer and I will certainly pass along my experinces to my other fishing buddies.

Thanks I will try to post some pics later. I think we are heading to Fish Hook tommorow.

Any do's and don't I should know about the lake??

      Thanks. I was only able to give it a whirl once shortly after the post, tried swim baits and tails with no luck. Yep, hear ya about the tackle sacrifice so the generic heads and rubber are the ticket. Depth, current speed, and the angle of the line are considerations when choosing jig weight but I'll use the lightest head possible. Various styles of swim baits and cranks have done well for me on the Sippi & MN in the past but haven't been smacked on the Red yet. Scheels in Moorhead is dumping the fishing stuff and had a little clearance bin where I scored a few cranks for cheap. Only lost one crank to the Red, but had a few close calls & the Rap was like $3. One thing I've learned about casting cranks in rivers is that I loose less if they're floaters and the front treble hook is customized or removed. It helps to use a braid also, when the vibration changes I stop reeling so the lure can back or float up out of the snag. Usually river fish crush a crank bait and I know it's a fish, they ain't got the luxury of suckin & spittin.
