Fishing reports??

2 posts in this topic

I've never been fishing to Upper Red Lake but looking at a previous post of some big northerns and lots of walleyes I would like to give it a try. I just need to get pointed in the right direction. I have a cabin in Squaw Lake and my wife is coming with me next weekend so I would like to catch #'s of walleyes and a few big pike as well. So where should I put in, what part of the lake to fish, how deep, what bait and what time of the day is best.

I really appreciate the info and just want to say thanks in advance!!

To give you a basic run down look at West Winds Resort to launch out of. We also have a public landing on the river but Westwinds offers a protected harbor, bait shop, fish cleaning, fuel at the marina, help launching your boat, restroom by the marina so on and so forth. It just makes for a easy trip.

For fishing it changes daily but start your search for walleye in 8-10 feet of water jigging close to structural elements and pike start trolling cranks in 5-9 feet of water trying to clip the edges of weed beds. And Red lake is a all day bite with a flury at sun up and sun down.

      Navionics also provides a computer based by region lake map U.S and Canada region with 1ft. contours at no cost. Like Gps Nautical Charts USA you can also purchase a version for your smart phone / tablet under $10 vs. $15 for Nautical Charts. Navionics offers SonarChart Live which give the users an opportunity to upload recorded contours to Navionics to update the Navionics maps which can be downloaded at any time providing constant updating to accurate lake contours. http://webapp.navionics.com/#boating@11&key=kz__HrgubQ

      There was random ice sheets all over the lake this morning.   Should be ice covered 100% barring it being to windy.   By Friday at the latest.   Could be ice fishing next week in certain areas.   Don

      Was up this past weekend, everything is still open. Should lock up this week though looking at the chilly forecast.

      An older gentleman I know gave me his ice fishing gear last year knowing he wasn't able to use it anymore due to health.  Really tore him up, as I'm sure it would for all of us.  Cleaned up the tipups real nice, and took this photo of one on Leech to send to him knowing they were in good hands and more importantly continue to catch fish!   I'm not in St.Cloud, nor want in for the contest just thought I'd share
