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.

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!

      Not bad! Was the ice soft all they way through?
