Congrats on the nice walleyes. I am a first timer to the Red and never seen such nice pics. I am from the Fargo-moorhead area, and was just curious if the fishing is that good my way. I was also curious what kind of bait do you guys use, and what depth do fish. Any information about the Fargo-moorhead area would be great. Congrats on the nice "eyes" again.

Walleyes,

Just about nobody's got the kind of 'eyes they have up there in the numbers they have them! Selkirk is the land of true hogs. However, we've got some exceptional ice fishing opportunities here on the Red. That being said, if you're not an experienced dude on the Red, I'd suggest hiring Ed Carlson for a day trip or two to get the scoop on the Red and its tribs. It's well worth the money and you'll learn more in a day than you would otherwise learn in a year. I'm certainly not the world's foremost expert on ice fishing the Red, but I know infinitely more from fishing with Ed. If interested, say so and I'm sure he'll see your reply and get back to you.

I might have to make a trip up there this year. Every year I say I'm going to, but this year I might have to break down and go. Is the bite good all through the winter? It would be nice to get a chance at one of those beauties.

The best time on the red for green backs is sept-feb. most big hawgs come out late in the fall.try trolling the flats along the channel with cranks or jigging, we had a great time this year with awesome fishing at first ice by selkirk, my shack is at sugar island but i have not used it in 2 weeks as fishing is slow there right now. Still pulling them up north on the river in 20-30'+ of water.the lake fish as always are a stunning electric green color. right now we are spending our time perch fishing on lk. manitoba and waiting to get out for some big northerns!

      @leech~~ I believe the permit does require those houses to be moved out of the contest area.  Not necessarily kicked off the lake. That’s what permits are for, eh?  Looks like a great day for you two - congrats!  Might’ve been the lake, the spot or the fisher.  But I’ll go with the lake too.

      Anyone come up with a good way to store the dinette table when fishing? My IC has two holes under the dinette and I put it outside to fish but it is sooooo cold when I turn it into a bed to go to sleep. Thinking of a bracket to hang it inside but I don’t really want to block a window? Any ideas? What do you guys do?

      Went by there today and noticed a few house setup in the contest area.  What happens to them next weekend? They are told to move or get kicked off a public lake? Should have gone to a different lake there Wanderer. Just saying. My son and I today.

      There have been signs there for a long time,   maybe 30 years?
    • Spartacus218er
      Good for him making those signs I enjoy his views in a nutshell!

      Access is in good shape at Hole in the Day.  Ice is in good shape and travels MUCH easier than last year.  But that was due to slush getting rutted and refrozen.  These warm temps might play that way again.  But for now all is well. Fishing though... the evening walleye bite was short like usual but finicky for us.  1 - 14 inch eye iced and one other lost.  Set line and shiner was responsible for the 14.  The hooked and lost fish was on a spoon with minnow head but I had to let it hang still for the commitment.  I had several other lookers but they just wouldn’t eat it.  Two lines became one but no bump!  Nice day to be on the lake.
