Lower Red & West Side of Upper Red

5 posts in this topic

I've never fished URL before but have always been intrigued and interested in the great stories I hear and read on FM.

Just curious, but are there any fish stories or reports that people have heard from those who are allowed to fish the reservation? Is there anybody that uses this site? I gotta believe that the west end of Upper has got to be good. Just curious more than anything.

Thanks.

It maybe great but we will never get a chance to fish it unless they change the laws. Somethings are best left for alone.

I realize that we will never be able to fish it. There's gotta be some fish tales though...

There arn't many who are fishing Lower Red and almost zero Red Lake Anishinaabe fish Upper Red, most fish where the Blackduck and Battle Rivers enter and only a few hundred yards off shore. The people I've talked to say the fishing is ok, similar to what is happening on our side. The thing is I don't know of anyone overthere that really gets out and searches for fi.sh and crappies are a rough fish to many. One good dude from the res puts it this way "perch are the best to eat, walleyes get sold, and the dogs eat the crappies.

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff
