I never have, but i read this site religously. From everything I have ever read you can expect to catch fish at anytime of day on Red. If it didnt cost $75.00 a gallon I would be out of the concrete jungle and fishing there this weekend.

I fished the other night way into the dark hours and the fishing was steady.

Now remember Red always was a night crappie bite until the last couple of seasons they went little more towards daytime...depending on snow cover and ice conditions we could be back to a solid night bite again this year.

I live for that night bite! Around 6 o'clock it's game on!We've gone up to Red for a few years now and last year decided to go to Devil's Lake instead, (in January). Boy what a difference. The night time when I get most excited everything shuts right down there. Really tough to get used to. Back to Red this year...

The Night bite is just as good as the day, sometimes better in spots...Not many northen at night...but the cappies and waldos are great at night...good luck

Every time I have stayed on RED those pesky walleyes wink.gif would bite all night. Every time we tried to lay down we would hear a rattle reel. This went on about every 15minutes. My girl wanted to sleep so I had a good night pulling up fish that were to large to keep.

Needless to say I like fishing Red anytime of the day or night.

Enjoy your trip and remember to do business with the local establishments.

      The local state parks are also an option. Very modest yearly fee there also. Cliff

      Absolutely. I'd never get mad at a guy squirrel hunting while I'm deer hunting. Thats just public land hunting. Now if he shot at squirrels very close to me that's different. Maybe the guys I talked to had a bad experience but it isn't that frequent. That's what I hope anyway.

      Looks like the forest service campgrounds charge a modest fee.  But the are pretty nice.   Fall lake, fenske lake are a couple to consider

      Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      We have had a great week of fishing with a few showers and strong winds.

      Up in Canada, jigging on reefs and underwater humps are producing the best in 22-28 ft. with gold, pink and orange jigs. Pulling spinners is also an option on reefs in 22-24 ft of water.

      In Minnesota, walleyes and perch have been caught pulling spinners in 18-28 ft. West of Four Blocks, East of Crow Duck and East of Garden Islands, with black and gold being the most effective.

      On both sides, muskies have been aggressive when throwing buck tails and top waters on rock reefs.  The algae bloom has slowly begun to pick up, however, fish are still visible.

      We hope to see you soon!

      I have had very good success the past few days using my standard lindy/1/2 crawler rigs. All fish were caught in sand/rock transition areas in 16' to 24' depths. Mornings were best from 8:00am to noon. Key factors were to look for pods of fish before even dropping a line! Some fish would bite and some would not. I did not spend much time on pods that would not bite! 2 passes and I was gone if we did not get a fish! Found many fish in spots that I have not fished all summer! Dumb ones I guess! Still tasted the same though! Cliff

      I hunt these WMA's routinely. It's not as bad as they say. Most of the time you're fine but you have to be prepared to have your hunt completely ruined and be able to laugh it off and move on. The land belongs to all of us. That said, if someone actually shot at a squirrel in a tree I'm sitting in, I might be tempted to shoot back.(kidding!)  Hard to imagine that really happened! I would say 75% of the time you have these places to yourself. It helps to pick areas that are a little harder to walk into.

      I'd love to do this. I've never hunted them as we didn't have any where I'm from. Do you know if this opportunity is for a wild pheasant or a pen raised bird?
