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.

      As most people know there has been some recent incidents out on the ice with people falling through.  Monday two gentlemen fell through on wheelers on HOL.  One of the gentlemen is Dave Genz's brother and since they have a cabin up there I'm sure he has been on the lake more then one time.  Then on Tuesday someone fell through down by Dent on one of the Silent Lakes.  A buddy of mine was on a lake by Frazee yesterday afternoon and even though there was 12" of ice he was able to get through the ice with one hit of his spud bar.  Everyone PLEASE PLEASE be careful out there.  This ice is getting eaten up quickly!  I lost a class mate of mine when he fell through the ice trying to rescue his dog so please just take the time and stay safe.  Don't forget your rope, Spud Bar, and a life jacket if you MUST scratch that last itch!

      No boat this year.  Just wondering if there are fish to be caught from the shoreline along Lock and Dam 5 above Bass Camp.   Seems like a nice place to fish.  Any input if it would be worth the drive
