Red Wing Fishing

3 posts in this topic

Well, I heard about everybody catching fish by red wing so we decided to give it a try on Sunday. We tried every spot on our Hot Spots map since we had never been there before. We used minnows w/jigs and w/ringworms and jigs. All colors too. We ended up catching only one sheepshead. We didn't see anybody else catching anything and everybody seemed to be moving around. Was it slow for everybody on Sunday or were we just doing something wrong? Maybe drift speed was our problem. We just got an old school trolling motor that wasn't like what we were used to and it was hard to control. But anyways, does anybody have any tips on what we can do next time we head down there so that we can hopefully catch some fish. Thanks smile.gif

The past 2 weeks have been pretty hit or miss, the rise in water 7-10 days ago got fish scatterd and tough to find, plus all the high water stirred up alot of muck and made visabilty limited. Best shot is to pitch shoreline with light jigs + plastics slooowly. Some fish you can pick-up on the sand flats near inside bends. March was a decent month for 'eyes & sauger, until the high water hit. Tournament fishing lately @ red wing hasn't been great.

I would imagine once spring run-off is done more normal conditions should help. And let's not forget to return those big pigs back for more fun in the future.

Good luck

huntingislife,

Had to laugh but your post looks like a copy of mine down below. I never seem to hit the RW dam at the right time. Oh well, gotta keep trying wink.gif

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.
