Where to fish this weekend

7 posts in this topic

Where would you recommend going this weekend? Depths? Colors?

I did pretty good for perch and eyes on Bemidji last weekend...

I'm trying Bemidji tonight and probably Upper Red tommorrow on into the evening. Depending on how it goes up there I may come back and fish the late night on Bemidji.

will do. Did okay on Bemidji tonight, bite started at 5:15pm and went pretty good for about an half hour. Couple decent eye's and a couple really nice jumbos. Caught some smaller walleyes that got put back to grow up, 12" range. Packed up at 6:45pm and headed home, my 4 year old was looking pretty tired out. Looking forward to Red tomorrow.

Went out of Aggasiz, 10 miles west and a mile north. Very few people out there, had a decent bite between 5:30pm to 6pm then it shut down. Couple wally's, one nice crappie, and a decent perch. Left at 8pm.

Tried Bemidji this morning, not much moving. Marked a couple and pulled up a couple perch between two guys.

Buck- Did you move around drilling holes finding fish or more of staying and waiting game? Thanks for the reports. I may be up on Red this weekend.

we moved around a little bit, less then 20 holes. I've had tough luck on Red this season, but the bite is starting to pick up. Next time up I think I'm going to focus on areas a little closer to the shoreline as the crappies should start moving in within a couple weeks. Good luck and let me know how you do.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
