My dad and i are coming up from Iowa for a little fishing and some extra time away from work. I've been fishing up around the dam in Red Wing once and had a great time several year back. I just wanted to know if there are a few thing I have to have in the tackle box to help us make our trip a memorable one.

Thank you for your help and if you see the a green and tan crestliner fish hawk on the water Su, Mon, or Tues give us a wave.

Thank you for your help,

Lane

The bite has been good, slowing a bit now. Be willing to change lures a lot. The bright colors worked last weekend in 12'-15' real well at the "y", and the Minn. side. The best thing you can do is to stop at EVERTS and talk to DEAN to get up to the minute info on what lure, color,depth,speed,and area. The fish are here, but you have to be flexable....GOOD LUCK.....><)))'>

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
