My best lure in the past has been a red buckshot spoon with a whole fat head. In the past the bigger the minnow the better. For my set line it has been a glow white frostee. Good Luck!

I have had good luck with red glow jigging spoons tipped with a minnow head (crappie or fatty). Also, make sure you have one dead stick with just a plain hook, crappie minnow and bobber. Many times you can attract them with the jigging spoon and the bobber presentation will create the bite. Plan on drilling a lot of holes and jump around, especially around dusk.

Best of luck.

Just got back on Feb 9 from first trip to Red and went with Chad Benson. What an awesome guide!!! Had us on fish all weekend. We found that demon jigs were the lure of choice with a fathead. Colors varied from glow, pink, green, red and black. 8 guys and we caught our Walleye limits Fri. and Sat. and plenty of keeper perch too. Good luck and look for Big Jeff's report on this forum sometime this week if he posts.

      The thumb nail method is tough for those that chew em!   I don't but know people who do.   I haven't used an official split ring pliers but a couple precision sizes have worked well.  This is a cheap set I like to have around.

      I use forage minnows and other types of jigging spoons also. Usually tipped with minnow head or waxies.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4
