Need a Starting Pointer for Tomorrow

6 posts in this topic

I'm heading up to Red tomorrow for the day and would appreciate any advice on a general area/depth to start. I haven't been up there since mid-summer when it started to die down. I'll be sure to share any knowledge when I get back.

Hey Grant,

The only thing to do on Red is to find water close to 14 feet deep and not in the middle of the crowds. There is no structure to up your odds.

Good luck though.

Yeah, I've fished Red dozens of times, so I'm a somewhat familiar with the lake structure. I was just wondering if anyone had been out recently (last few days) and had luck. Also, if they were willing to share a tip about general location or rough depth or a landing to get started at, and I'd let them/theboard how I did. I was thinking about going to the North end for starters, out of Hudecs, but will be checking around.

Thanks.

This last weekend we went out of hilmans and
turnt right 4 miles out
and drove another block or two set up
camp jigglestick poked some holes in 13'
of water and started to fish.
But first get out A tipup--big sucker with
A good hook (we broke 2) even before the
first beer, the pike come easy the crappies
take more talent, you have to try about 37
different hooks,jigs,minnows,drinks,before
you start to catch the motherlode of perch
wallies or slabs.
If you see A BIG RED pickup driving around
the lake it's just KELLY and hes lost grin.gif
he has his shirt on backwards no problem
just give him A captian&coke and he will
tell you that the fish are in the lake.

Good luck give it your best shot thats what
we do smile.gif

Hi Grant. I'm going to give it a try tomorrow and Friday and will do much as you plan to do. I like PUTZ's advice and will work hard to have some fun. I'll give you a report on how I do as well.

Thanks for the heads up. I really do appreciate it. I'll have a few beers in the box for sure, so I'll keep my eyes peeled for the yellow.

I'm going to try to get out there in the morning to make it an all dayer. I'll definitly rig some tipups and pace myself.

Thanks for the good word.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
