The number of postings have really dropped off since the walleye season closed. In the "crappie boom" days you could leave your computer for 10 minutes and their would be quite a few postings waiting to be read. If you were away from your computer for a couple of days it seemed to take forever to wade through everything when you got back. The "Boom" might be over and the schools depleted but they are still there - just smaller and more spread out. The water level and snow cover might be making it more difficult but if you put in your time you will still catch them - maybe just not in the numbers of years ago. I love those silver and blacks coming out of that cold water. They are delicious and There are very few lakes where you can catch the size of fish that Red Lake has to offer. Five crappies in Red are equal to 10-12 fish in most lakes. I have two more trips on Red this year and am unable to fish when it will be prime time. I am envious of those of you who are going the last week of March into early April. Fishing on bare ice with the water running into the holes and no need of an auger is fun. Enjoy!!!

I had to post this just to see if there is anyone out there monitoring the website - Ha! Ha!

I agree, the number of posts has dropped drastically. I think everyone is viewing and not writing. I hope to make it to Red within the next couple of weeks to try my luck.

I am planning on URL March 28th and 29th. This will be my first experience on Spring fishing. I have made three trips this winter and had fun all three times. If anybody is going to be on the pond those two days, lets get together and compare notes.

Hopefully we won't need the waders...

It'll pick up before the walleye opener. I had some pretty bad luck the last couple times I was up there. 3 trips to be exact. One this winter and 2 late in the summer. I am thinking on making a trip earlier in the summer/ late spring after walleye opener to try my "luck" again.

It seems the forum traffic has dropped all across the state! I keep tabs on several different areas and not much is posting anywhere. I seem to be spending more time in the clean-ups area reading about politics. How sad is that!

I get nervous when it's that quiet. It's like the shower scene in the Alfred Hitchcock movie where you know something bad is going to happen but you don't know what it is. I guess maybe I should just enjoy it. I will admit it is a lot better than trying to dodge vehicles zooming 40 m.p.h. down the road, seeing trash everywhere and having to listen to the constant drone of augers when you are trying to fish outside.

Shaky legs, aka the lonely man.

I was taught in the army to never volunteer for anything. I also learned to not send a fool on an important mission. Oh what the [PoorWordUsage]! Doc and I will be reporting for duty around 01100 hours Drill Sargent P.

      Nice gill Rick

      HunterFisher Don't rule out trying that lake again. If theres a lot of wood in the water those schools could, be pinned down on other trees than you were fishing. Trust me I have a lake near Glenwood i fish that has a bunch of tress scattered throughout the lake. It took me numerous times fishing it to figure out patterns on that lake. But once i found them well worth it!  I have found lakes with a lot of submerged trees or wood usally hold some real good panfish, . They have plenty of places to hide from predators and anglers through out the seasons.

      See you tomorrow Jeff we'll dial them in

      Keep checking in here for any updates.  There's a very good chance that the location may change a bit as there have not been a lot of catfish at the methhole area.  Prefishing in the next day or so will help us pin down a location.  I will post any changes here.
    • Borch
      A lake like that with no real hole or structure lends itself to roaming fish.  If there is a defined weededge that will be your structure.  Electronics are not going to show you much until the fish is on your bait.  Drill a lot of holes and move around until you catch fish.

      Hay thanks for your input.... Just got home and got skunked!!!!! But that is ok at least now I know to take it off my list of lakes to fish in the winter, but will be back on it come spring and early summer...

      Caught 17 walleyes on Friday, but all were dinks except for two 15".  Caught 6 more Saturday, all small again except for one 16".  Also caught a 12 inch perch, 3 eelpout, and 2 tulibee. Considering the snowstorm prediction for Sunday, I pulled my house off the lake and parked it back in the garage for the season.  LOW next week, then onto lakers the following weekend.
    • JerkinLips
      I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday. I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday.
