First time to URL for wife

2 posts in this topic

I finally talked the wife to come with me to red. I want to make this a fun trip for her so she will want to go more often. I want to catch a few eyes and some crappie but she wants to catch crappie. We will be heading up friday afternoon till sunday noon with the wheeled house. I will be going out of Hillmans so can anyone give me some info on the best distance out on the road to set up? I have been to url a couple of times before but that is about it. I know the bite was slow this last weekend but it has to be better than milacs two weekends ago for me when I fished for 30 hours and caught one eye.Thanks in advanced for any info.

First off, you need to relate to your wife that the crappies are pretty hard to find... Look at Jonny and all the other guides, working to find a spot and a good report is 4-5 crappies. Secondly, I doubt when your wife is pulling up a 20" walleye, she is going to have a frown on her face. Stop in and ask for a spot they suggest at Hillmans, and Good luck and report back.

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.

      Good luck out there.  I'll try to make some time to stop over.

      The reason I asked @eyeguy 54 is during the day that ramp parking lot at Cathedral is always full of student parking. Can't understand how they get away with it. During the week prior to Governor's Opener we never had any issues during the weekdays, but now on school days, we just launch at Wilson Park. BTW, did you find any walleye on the down current sides of the sandbars in that stretch?

      We use to go there until a few years ago. Now we are right next store. I couldn't figured out how to get into my old account so I had to make a new one. My old screen name was deershooter.
