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

      That sounds encouraging. Did you notice all the dead carp on shore? I wonder what's up with that, a virus or something maybe?

      I've never trout fished in MN and was hoping to get some help as a newcomer to the state. I know there are a lot of streams but I've also read that DNR info on them is often out of date and I dont want to drive an hour or more to a desolate stream.    Most seem to either have only browns or only small brooks. I really am after some medium size, 12 to 14 inches, rainbow trout for the smoker so I definitely will release any big browns if I catch one.    I've got waders and a kayak and am willing to do what is necessary to get to good, less pressured water.    Bonus offer, I have 2 very stable fishing kayaks, you can stand up in them, and would be more than happy to let you use one if you wanted to organize a float down river in exchange for showing me a decent spot to get some rainbows. Any takers or advice?    Edit - I live in Andover and would prefer to keep the drive below an hour and a half unless it's a well worth while stretch of water.

      That's a really neat boat

      Unfortunately as close as I came to pulling the trigger I'm going to put it off until next year (might be getting my hands on a little boat later this year though). Buddy of mine has a canoe that we're going to rig up best we can and get out a few times. I'll be buying some decent waders instead and adventuring out that way into the river. 

      Thanks for the advice, it's killing me that I can't get out on the water! House downpayment takes priority though... unfortunately.
