Well I figured that I would post our groups report. Had a great time but not the best fishing. It was four of us. We ended up catching one crappie and 9 walleyes. All but one walleye came from the dead sticks. Jigging was not effective at all. Used fat heads on all types of glow jigs. The only consistant thing was that the walleyes were all caught between 6 and 8pm. The crappie came at midnight. 2 nights of fishing and got 5 walleyes that were under the 17inch mark. 4 that were not. Weather got cold and I know how fishing goes... I really hope this lake figures out its course.

Best of Luck!

I fished with a group of four from 2pm Friday until 7am Saturday. We caught 3 walleyes, two 16 inchers, one 11 incher, one 11 inch perch, one walleye missed right at the hole and one snapped line. I marked a couple fish that wouldn't bite through-out the night. Of the fish we did catch; the perch at 4:30pm, one walleye came at about 7pm, the next at about 10:30pm and the last one came about 3am. We had a pretty good assortment of lures down there. Pink jig on adead sticking with the minnow head and pink demon set-line with a whole minnow accounted for two walleyes.

Not the best fishing but it was nice to make my first trip of the year. I was hopping for that one crappie that would have motivated me to make another trip later this year but he didn't bite and now I am thinking I may be done with Red Lake for the year. It would be nice to bring a protable and really give the lake a good working over but I don't think my bank account is going to allow that to happen. Even with four guys spliting the cost everything adds up fast. It was a long night and a longer three hour trip home this morning.

      I'd pull it off to error on the side of caution.  You can always put it back out there in the future.

      Just because an officer doesn't say have a nice day doesn't mean he's a dick.  Can you imagine all the idiots this guy has to deal with on a daily basis?  It's the same with police officers.  They also get a bad rap because they aren't super polite or "nice" to people.  They get disrespected and abused and lied to on 95% of their calls.  You probably wouldn't be the most cordial person either if you had to deal with the crap they have to.     Should they be cordial?  Yes.  Is that what they get paid to do?  No.  Don't let it bug you so much.

      What's the Ice thickness on Blue now?  I'm considering driving out tomorrow on Blue. Has anyone fished Crappies or Sunnies Mon, Tues or Weds this week?
