Red Wing / Lake Pepin fishing

4 posts in this topic

Any info on Red Wing and Pepin would be greatly appreciated. Headed down next Thursday with my son and haven't got a clue. Have only fished the river in May in the past. If you don't want to post on FM send me a personal email at: minnkotaoutdoors@msn.com Any locations and presentations for early August would be appreciated. Thanks much.

Corey,

If you want to research Red Wing I would suggest going to the Polebender site and look at past tourneys for Mississippi. Normally a very tough bite for August. Water is way down and tough to get to the back waters. This tourney will be won on lake Pepin.

Good Luck in the tourney.

corey your best bet in august when the water is so warm is the deepest water on or around lake pepin your best way of presentation is to use lead line off the back of the boat and planer boards off the sides were using num.5-7 shad raps.if you dont have lead line or planers you can long line with mono.if you need more info stop at the store when you get to redwing .good luck IKE

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
