Good Spots around Red Wing area?

13 posts in this topic

Hey all! Im new to the forums and was curious if you know any good spots for crappies/sunnies or walleyes in a 30-40 mile radius of Red Wing. I will be fishing a lot during January and really have no clue where to go.

Thanks for all your help!

I was down at the Baypoint Marina a week or so ago and did well on sunnies and crappies. The size was okay. I could have kept a few for a meal if I wanted to.

There are alot of backwaters for a person to explore. Becareful though as the ice thickness varied everywhere I've explored so far.

Waxies and eurolarva had limited success with minnows.

There is a place called DuShanes or Lovejoy landing, North of Red Wing towards Hastings on Ravina Trail that has been producing crappies and sunnies. Very easy access and you will be fishing in about 3-4 feet of water.

In the center of this Map is the boat launch and parking lot. Most of the fishing is being done 1 block NW of the launch.

that is the truedale slough and a backwater of the vermillion river. Any idea how deep that is? I would guess not very deep depending on river levels.

Thanks for the Pic Dale, helped a bunch.

3-6' of water with most of the fish being caught in 3-4' of water. While looking up Truedale Slough (I really didn't need another name for this area) I ran across this DNR web site. Lots of good information about where public access are if you page down to all of the maps.

good question Willow Cat I was wondering if Sturgeon Lake near the Casino is safe to fish. I haven't been out there in the winter and I haven't had a chance to get down that way this winter to scope it out.

Has anyone ever been down there ice fishing?
