Suggestions on how to Fish Upper Red for the first timer

Recommended Posts

Grabs

Planning a trip to Upper Red, potentially staying up there the 29th and 30th.

I have never been up there, but I do know the bit is pretty much only from 5pm and into the evening. How late does the bite run? All night or just for a few hours?

What is the best way to Fish N' Stay?
Pull up my Ultra Shack? (lots of gas money)
Fish out of portables and stay in a motel or cabin?
Rent a sleeper house?

What would you recommend?

Thanks in advance.

Rent one of Kelly's sleepers if you can get it. If not,

Drill tons of holes and keep moving around until you find fish. If you drill enough holes, somtimes you can find a day bite. Either that or you will be so tired from drilling holes you are forced to consume grin.gif

Kelly, the dates I was looking for were Sun the 29th and Monday the 30th,...was there some confusion?

We might only have 2 people. Do you have anything open?

I guess we might be open to the Sunday the 22nd and Monday the 23rd, if there is something there.

Grabs.
The 29th is booked full. The 30th has a 2 person sleeper open.
I'm not taking any reservations before 12-26. I have big houses I would like to have a little more ice before I head out there. Besides it's gonna be a long winter and I wanna have some energy and attitude left when the fishing gets hot in Feb. and March. smile.gif

Kelly, thanks for the info. After speaking with you I think we might wanna try and book a second trip for later in the year. Possibly early March. Are you booked in March on Friday's and Sat? Let me know what you might have open in March.

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.
    • The Chemist
      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.
    • eyeguy 54
      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
