Thanks Chad Benson.

3 posts in this topic

Just wanted to say thanks to Chad Benson. 4 of us went up from the 19-21. Chad had us on the walleye, and his reports were very accurate. Chad put us on fish and we caught about 30 to 50 a day. Most came at night durring the night bite, and on our last night we left up the rattle wheels after one in the morning. You know its a succesful trip when you get sick of catching walleye by the end of it. Talking with friends sounds like we might try to get back up late Jan. to see about that crappie bite. Hopefully there are shaks left. Once again tanks Chad, you really made a believer outta everyone in the group when it comes to fishing on Upper Red. grin.gif And for others reading the post, larger gold kastmasters where the lure of choice when it came to producing fish on our trip.

Benson paid you how much to say this?

No I'm only kidding. grin.gif

That's what I love about URL. I don't mind only taking home two... I'm more of an action fisherman anyway. As long as get action when I fish, I really don't care what I take home. The crappies are definitely a bonus!

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.

      I went and looked at a couple smaller 'early ice" lakes in the Cloquet area on sunday afternoon and there is nothing going on, and even tho the temps are gonna get colder, the wind this week will most likely not allow any of them to cap off til at least the weekend. Looking like its gonna be closer to Xmas before I'll be walking out for early ice this year (that's 6" for me LOL)

      I asked my sales guys that question a couple weeks back, when I picked up mine and he told me 4-6 hrs, I'm guessing that can change depending on the temps and stuff

      I am guessing he is using the vexilar edge or whatever the open water graph is called since he said he has fish alarm Personally I never use fish alarm or fish id on electronics   I am no expert either but here are some images that may help you
