If it was me, I apologize

8 posts in this topic

A couple of weeks ago I posted asking about info for my upcoming trip on Aug. 18. I asked for location, techniques etc. Shortly after that a post appeared about sharing specific info, GPS coordinates and the like. I truly hope my post was not the cause of that. I didn't intend that someone would give me GPS locations or even specific reefs. I was only asking for general info like reefs, weed lines, shoreline breaks etc. If I was misunderstood, I apologize.

Having said that, I am bringing my nephews along and wondered if there is a crankbait trolling bite in RedGut. I was thinking of pulling boards over open water, something like is done in the Great Lakes. Is there a good population of open water walleyes or do they relate mainly to the structure. Thanks for any info.

I don't have any real fishing info for you but I will say that is debate goes on in every forum on this site atleast once a summer and then again once every winter.

There are good reasons to keep specific info on the down low but people should be able to give you some info that can help you catch fish. Also ask if people are willing to email some info, you can be a little more liberal with info via email.

Don't take it personally though, its a common occurence around these forums.

I don't know about pulling boards, but I have almost exclusively been fishing the Redgut area and have done well finding baitfish in deep water off of the reefs and then pulling Reef Runner or Deep Taildancers over them at about 2 mph.

I regularly pull crank baits in Redgutbay. Usually working the edges of the reefs in about 25/30 ft. It would be hard to use boards as you have to follow the edge of the reefs to stay in reasonable depths, thus requiring relatively tight turns. I like to use one oz in-line weights four or five feet in front of a Shadrap. This lets you get down without having too much line out and lets you follow the depth contour. Incidently, I will be there this weekend also cranking the area. If you see a green lund 21ft, Fisherman, cranking, give me a yell.

Thanks for the info. If all goes well we will be fishing by Friday night. We will be in a white lund with merc motors. Hopefully we will see you and also, Bill, thanks for the info. We'll let you know how we did when we get back.

Hey Lund - the post wasn't prompted by your question but more as a result of a collection of comments heard on the job and some observations over the years on fishing websites as a whole.

Because of my job (DNR creel clerk), my backround in customer service and the fact I reside here and fish the lake often, I feel sort of obligated to share more info than I do, so thought an explanation was in order.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this magic truffles and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.
