Good Spots around Red Wing area?

3 posts in this topic

Hey everyone, Im new to the site and am looking to do some ice fishing this winter, mainly during January. Are there any spots in a 30 mile radius of Red Wing that have decent fishing. Mainly looking for crappies,pannies,northerns or walleyes.

Also Im looking at a MarCum LX-3... and what you all think about them or should I go a cheaper unit for my first one? Reason Im thinking about spending a little more is because I heard they last quite a while and I would end up using it for sometime and it would be nice to have some good features on it.

Thanks for your help!

Welcome to the forum.

The LX-3 will make you happy. There really is no "steps" when buying fish finders. The LX-3 is a great buy with many features you will learn and learn to like.

As for fishing close to Red Wing- Check out the regional 'Pool 4-11' forum. That is more the area you are lookin at. It will cover areas from the Red Wing ponds to the waters of Lake City.

Good luck

Ryan

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff

      How do you fish for the cats on open water?

      Interesting point, BT.  I think our houses caught one perch this year, and I can't say that I knowingly marked one small one (except for when I was down in the bays on the south side).  I have no doubt that they are still in the lake, but I just ain't seeing any.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.
