My day at Upper Red

Recommended Posts

smartguy

Just got back from Upper Red lake. We had one of those days where EVERYTHING seems to go wrong:
We ran out of bait at peak bite time - thanks to that God forsaken perch hole we were on. By the time I got back from the bait store, the typical peak bite time was gone.
Only one crappie between two guys in 6+ hours of fishing. About 3- 4 dozen 6-7" perch.
Worst yet, when it was time to leave, my portable house didn't want to collapse since the poles were all iced up. After thawing them out with my Mr. Heater (and freezing our azzes off in the 45 minute process!), we finally were able to leave. Except that I noticed a small piece of my floor broke off.
Of course, being that the trunk lid of my car couldn't close completely (due to the fish house sticking out), I had a ton of snow in my trunk.
Oh yeah, forgot to mention that I burned my left arm 3 times on my heater - and I didn't even drink!

Wish I could go back up tomorrow!

smartguy,
If I remember right didn't your house run out of fuel earlier in the year? You are on a real bad run of luck but that could be good as all things come even in the end so you are due for a warm day and a hot bite. smile.gif
Yesterday when littleitaly was in W.W.'s bait shop a guy came in and she asked how it was going. His response was something like this, "I got stuck and had to get someone to pull me out. Then the tire broke off my fish house. We haven't caught a fish yet but this is the most fun I've had in a long time".

Yep, we were up there about a month ago when you refilled our propane. Still owe you a beer for that.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
