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!

      Headed up this weekend.  Just curious if the bait of choice is still rainbows/chubs?  Still getting fish in the 18-30 FOW range?  Thanks.

      I spend a lot of time in the early summer after bass. Always have used a fluorocarbon leader and for me the best color has been white. I use a grub or a variety of tubes. Rock piles or points/saddles off islands etc. Sometimes narrow channels also. As far as traffic, we are spoiled! Compared to other lakes there is very little traffic on Vermilion. If you go to the river there is no HP limit. Good luck.

      Quick question about the DNR launch on the very north end of Big Sauk in Sauk Centre. Is there ample parking? Also, is the launch in good shape? Too steep? Too shallow? I plan to go up this weekend with a 16 ft deep V.   Any fishin reports or water condition reports are welcomed too :-)   Thanks in advance!!

      Was out opening weekend walleye fishing. Caught walleyes in 10 -12 ft slow trolling minnows. Looked like the spawn was over and this coming weekend should be much better. Water was 55 degrees in the area I was in and didn't  get any other species.

      Good evening hooked up as a non resident you are allowed one walleye between the sizes mentioned per day no matter what license you posses. As others have stated, the smallness should be off their beds and the walleyes will be transitioning to the deep water reefs. Wind blown points or current are always good places to start.

      I'm not a big bass chaser, but last year I started tossing senkos rigged wacky around rock piles and docks and did pretty well on Smallies.  Green Pumpkin color seemed to work the best.    Stay away from white bouys, they mark hazards..... Unless you are creeping up on them with your trolling motor to pitch senkos on top of the rock pile.  I'll be on Trout Lake June 7-10 so if you want to text me when you get up to Vermilion I can give you a report on how it went for us.   Lots of resorts on Vermilion rent 25 HP fishing boats.     matt 612-868-1282
