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.

      All we ever use is a few bigger spilt shots and float/bobber with crawlers.

      Anyone going out for the opener this weekend? I'll be too busy trout fishing, but I'm all booked up for the month of May on the Croix

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret
