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

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
