I was up on red last Friday-Sunday. The morning and again evening bite seems to be the best but you will catch fish all day if they are not totally shut down. We caught two pike and three perch(threw all back) during the daylight hours. The Crappies came right after dark then again in the a.m. between 7-11 a.m.

We were out 6-7 miles-caught fish on set lines as well as jigging for them.

Good Luck-wish I was going again!

night is the best since the water is so clear from limited run off in the fall, low light period is prime

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.
