As far as I know theres not much for tulibee fishing in the area. I usually target whitefish when I'm looking for something to smoke. The south bay on Crosslake and Lower Hay seem to be the best places I've found for those.

Pelican lake. Usually get some nice ones up to 2#. Its kind of hit and miss. There out in the deeper holes suspended, you need vexilar. But always have a small pimple rig set up with crappie minnow head. They use to come thru like clock work at 830am. Could get a dozen if you hit it right. Great sport on lite tackle, their fighters. Occassionally nailed a whitefish, wow do they fight.

I caught one on round tonight, was the first one i had ever seen, had to ask the guys in the shack next to me what it was. Do you just smoke them or are they good to fillet up and eat? It was a great fighter, fun to catch!

They are awesome fighters especially on ul stuff. thats why i love catching them!! the best way to prepare them is to smoke them however i have grilled them and sprinked brown sugar on them while on the grill and they were pretty tasty that way as well!! Were you fishing in front of the Ojibwa access??

I catch the whitefish in about 10-14ft. in weedy areas. I just use a small jigging spoon with a minnow head. Its neat on Cross with the clear water because they cruise the tops of the weeds and you can watch them come in and hit. They ussually come in anywhere from 4-8ft. off the bottom.

      Thanks. I was only able to give it a whirl once shortly after the post, tried swim baits and tails with no luck. Yep, hear ya about the tackle sacrifice so the generic heads and rubber are the ticket. Depth, current speed, and the angle of the line are considerations when choosing jig weight but I'll use the lightest head possible. Various styles of swim baits and cranks have done well for me on the Sippi & MN in the past but haven't been smacked on the Red yet. Scheels in Moorhead is dumping the fishing stuff and had a little clearance bin where I scored a few cranks for cheap. Only lost one crank to the Red, but had a few close calls & the Rap was like $3. One thing I've learned about casting cranks in rivers is that I loose less if they're floaters and the front treble hook is customized or removed. It helps to use a braid also, when the vibration changes I stop reeling so the lure can back or float up out of the snag. Usually river fish crush a crank bait and I know it's a fish, they ain't got the luxury of suckin & spittin.
