Recommended Posts

Went out of Rogers on Sun-Mon brought home 3 but missed a few as well. I would suggest you bring an auger extension The ice was 27 inches and the auger bottomed out on the floor without the extension.
Good Luck

bklimek, when you say move, move, move, how far are you moving each time? How often? Is this during daylight or after dark? Are you 'seeing' fish on your vex before drilling holes or just drilling, fishing for x minutes and then moving on? Just curious, people are always saying to move until you find fish but curious as to how they do it.

fished out of rogers sat and sun morning and brought home 16 for four people. We went out to the right and crossed the breaker and headed out about a mile past the breaker. No real hot time just a crappie here and there. Lot's of fun though, I can't get enough of upper red!!!!

Blackjack,

The keys to fishing Red are:

1. Stay away from the crowds, there is no structure so the fish can, and will be anywhere.

2. Move until you find active fish. My guideline has been 1/2 hour. If we haven't hit a fish by then we move. You don't have to go very far. Sometimes 50 feet will make the diff. I have had some days where we have moved 8-10 times and drilled upwards of a 100 holes for the day. Most of the time it doesn't take that much though smile.gif

3. REREAD RULE #1

And I am sure not everybody had bad luck going out at Rogers either. That is fishing. The key is to move..move..move..and then move. Try to stay away from the crowd has always been the secret to finding the URL crappies.

      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.

      Went out to Otter Lake (next to Bald Eagle) on Wednesday, a lake filled with hammerhandles and could barely make out three small pike in the dirty water before giving up.  Was up on a lake in the Horseshoe chain that is also supposed to be filled with small pike and saw zero but the wife caught a small on a tip-up.  At least a big catfish came in and sat at the bottom of the hole for well over an hour.

      Only a few tiny ones..... Pays to get the hell away from the crowd...

      That’s a bucket list trip for me.  No reason that I haven’t been there yet outside of the fact it isn’t in my normal territory.  And that’s an ironic statement for me to make! Come to think of it, I should just plan it and go.  It’ll never happen otherwise.  Anybody got any pointers for heading that direction?  I wouldn’t even know where to start.  Pretty self sufficient for gear and travel and could figure it out eventually but a helping hand or even a guide reference would be appreciated.

      The ice is gone now. More than likely won't be anymore this year.

       that reminds me the batteries on that GPS tracker hid somewhere on your truck are running low. The red blinking light on the base unit here at home, sure has been annoying. Can't believe it showed you were out fishing in the wind, close to home anyway, today.

      Upper Red nears record winter harvest Ice fishing on Upper Red Lake has slowed in recent weeks, but the walleye harvest is on track to set or approach a wintertime record, numbers from an annual winter creel survey show. According to Henry Drewes, regional fisheries supervisor for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources in Bemidji, anglers through January had kept about 125,000 pounds of walleyes. The wintertime high for Minnesota's portion of the lake was slightly more than 140,000 pounds in 2015, DNR statistics show. Anglers harvested 109,327 pounds of walleyes in the winter of 2017, according to DNR creel survey results. "If we have an average February, we'll be right in that area" of 140,000 pounds, Drewes said. "Catch rates and pressure have really tapered off in the last (few weeks). I think that's related to winter fatigue and a slower bite." Wheel houses, which have exploded in popularity among winter anglers in recent years, now account for more than 80 percent of the ice fishing pressure on Upper Red, Drewes said. Anglers on Upper Red can keep four walleyes, of which only one can be longer than 17 inches. Walleye and northern pike season on Upper Red and other Minnesota inland waters closes Sunday, Feb. 25 and reopens Saturday, May 12. The Minnesota DNR manages 48,000 acres of Upper Red, while the remaining 72,000 acres are within the boundary of the Red Lake Indian Reservation and managed by the Red Lake Band of Chippewa. -- Brad Dokken Grand Forks Herald

      Same for me on Green by Princeton once it got dark the fish started biting. I was marking them and only had 4 bites while the sun was up.
