Reddoor report?

14 posts in this topic

Does anyone have any report on perch in the Reddoor area? Thinking about going in that area this weekend, any help would be great.

Was up at Red Door Friday with my 3 1/2 yr old grandson on his very first fishing trip ever with grampa on his birthday. Got a 14" monster perch on his new sponge bob fishing pole...unreal. Saw many large groups of jumbos which would only sniff baits and swim on. One took a small minnow on a gold gem-n-eye and the rest were on "fresh water" shrimp {Vados had them}. Bellys were full of them and other critters. Pat is a sweetheart up there. Good luck.

My buddy and i sucked it up and braved the elements and went out yesterday mourning. Set up about 830 Between red door and barnacles. Dropped my jigging spoon down and it didn't even hit bottom and we had a nice 13" perch. Lets just say that was the highlight of the day. We ended with 4 keepers around 10". My buddy lost something bigger on a tip-up but that was it. With the temp. barely getting above 0 I can wait to see how they will bite when its nice out.

Our house is/has been out of Red Door the whole winter. We have been up almost every weekend, including the last two with bad weather. Had the camera down, nothing but small perch. Did get one eelpout about 6 pounds. No perch takers, didnt' even see any jumbo's, just small ones. We moved it to the east of their road-that's where they were biting two weeks ago, not the case now. Or at least it wasn't for us. I'm heading back up Thurs eve-Sat. am. I may be lake hopping if it is slow again. Hopefully next years ice bite is better.

Returned late last nite after what i thought was going to be a up and back trip within the same day!!! Needless to say that wasnt the case! Headed out to the rocket, and omg was there snow out there! Farther out we got the deeper it got! I knew full well before i decided to go out that far that there wasnt gunna be any roads, but man what a pain in the arse it was getn out there! If it had not been for chains on my 3/4 ton and the help of my buddy with his truck with 35's I prolly still wouldnt be here writing this now! After the wind picked up sunday nite, it blew our path shut! Finally got ahold of the chains yesterday and started the trek back to shore with the houses. Made it to the resort road around 6:30 finally and headed home. Oh ya and the fishin, well needless to say there all still swimming out there minus one stinkin pout! Terrible fishin, the worst i've seen in my years on Mille Lacs!
