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.....><)))'>

      Looks fun Eyguy. As normal no time to get out but did just finish up cleaning and checking over the yak so maybe thats a sign. Haha.

        Yes sir! 8ft-9ft rods seem to work the best IMO.

      4/23/17     Crappies still biting in west Metro area lakes. Water temp in the mid 50's now, and the fish are moving a little shallower. We caught tons of 8 to 11 inch crappies in about ten feet of water, with some weeds on the bottom. Fished a jig tipped with a Powerbait minnow about four feet below a slip-float for great success. Some sunfish starting to show up in the same areas. Water temp probably won't rise much this week with the forecast of cooler temps and quite a bit of rain, but as the water does warm fish should continue to move shallower and get more aggressive. Check out my You Tube channel for some short video clips and a full length show about springtime crappie fishing. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.
