i have been catching walleyes on potato in 18 to 24 feet on north end humps with crawlers on a 16th oz. jig. redtails have been working as well. don't know about little mantrap but i would assume that you could pile up bass and crappies if you wanted to put in some time. As far as muskies go this week i anticipate will be very busy on Mantrap, still worth some time in my opinion but i might try to get out there after dark. Jonah

Just spent the labor day weekend fishing potato, fish hook, and little man trap, fishing was horrible. We didnt get any walleyes, or largemouth believe it or not, we fished everything, deep, weedlines, humps, with red tails, and worms. Talked to many people and had the same reports as well. Good luck.

My father did pretty well all weekend on fish hook for walleyes with crawlers. He had at least 3 walleyes each day as well as a number of bass. He did say he really had to work for them, fish were caught in 19 fow. Jonah

      Got out yesterday. Plenty of ice, not too much snow. Got a few gills and a few crappies. Light bite. Not exactly fast and furious, but fun to be out. Heading back today.

      I think it will be alright but i would be lying if i said i wasnt thinking what to do myself.

      Yes the pressure has decreased the walleye population. My question is this....what is the target walleye population goal? I do believe there may have been an abundance of fish a few years back that would not be healthy for the lake either. Are we at the "proper fish level" now and this will be the typical pattern moving forward or where are things at? Only lake surveys and biologists can tell that story. You still see some reports of excellent fishing but I have heard a lot more poor reports this season than prior years but there are some environmental differences also....(snow levels, pressure ridges, cracks).   I don't make the trip to red to be able to fill my freezer.....I make the trip for my kids to have action and make memories. This last trip was a slow one but we had a beautiful 36" pike come visit and made some great memories as it tangled all the lines for my wife and daughters. I was called back to the house to assist as I was off setting up the portable for our next searching spot. Made it just in time to pull it out of the hole for her! Lots of smiles and some wide eyes from my youngest daughter! Can you provide a date for this photo? Nice shot for sure, thanks for sharing!

      I am having the same luck as you Big A. I figure that the fish gods are angry at me.
