8 posts in this topic

Looking at getting up that way sometime this summer and was wondering if theres any good campgrounds on or close to the Red. Planning on chasing some channels.

East Grand Forks has a big campground that would only be a minute or two from the closest boat landing & cabelas. There is also a new boat landing on the Grand Forks side about 5-10 minutes away from that campground.

Thanks UMC, I'll look into those options.

Flaco, looks like UMC has you covered for the GF/EGF areas.

In Fargo, I'd suggest Lindenwood. That'd give you access to the middle section of the river in town and it would be a short drive to fish the South or North sections.

Go North....2 campgrounds in Drayton and you'll have miles and miles of river all to yourself, better fishing and no big city traffic!!

      I always use only 1/2 crawler mainly because it is all that is needed to get walleyes to bite. It also more closely resembles the molting rusty crayfish and Mayfly nymphs that the walleyes are eating. The 1/2 crawler also works well when the walleyes are feeding on young-of-the-year perch. It works much better then using a crappie minnow on my rigs for some reason. I have tried both on different lines at the same time and the crawler will out fish the crappie minnow every time! Does not make sense when they are eating minnows, but that is the way it is. I always had problems with the walleyes stealing my bait when I used a whole crawler too. If I fed a whole crawler to the fish long enough for them to eat it, I almost always gut hooked the fish. One of my clients boated a 27-1/2 inch walleye today using 1/2 crawler, a red hook, and a green glow bead. Cliff

      I was wondering if and there is any good fishing in Hastings during the summertime lake Rebecca, lake Isabella, Vermilion River, or anywhere off the banks of the Mississippi? I haven't caught anything yet this year and I am itching to catch anything now. Just a fyi I just bank fish.   Thanks in advance!

      I'm debating whether to bring my small fishing boat on a camping trip with the inlaws last weekend iinJuly. Is it worth it fishing this time of year. We are staying in the Whipolt bay. If I do fish it may be after dark when kids are sleeping. Would be open to catching both walleyes and/or panfish. Send me advice please as I have fished the lake only once.

      Cliff, Why do you use a 1/2 crawler and not a whole one? I usually use a whole crawler on my Lindy. I caught this nice 27" tonight on a red #2 with a green soft bead and a big fat whole crawler.
