Red Tails

Recommended Posts

E.Martin

Hey guys, I'm heading up on Saturday for a week of fishing on Big Sand. Does anyone in town have red tails or should I try and locate some on the drive up? Typically I find them at both Northern and Delaneys, but with the dry weather, I'm not sure if they have been able to trap any.

we have a PILE of them at Northern bait. we dont need to rely on traps up here, we raise them, one of only two redtail hatcheries in the midwest. so that means we will have them all fall when they really get good. Jonah

The family and I were up in PR this past week. Delaney's was out of red tails when I arrived on Tuesday. I bought a scoop of Creek Chubs instead. Ended up getting five nice northerns and a huge large mouth on Litte Sand before running out of the chubs. Replaced those with red tails from Delaney's and ended up with six more northerns.

Didn't hit on any walleyes with either minnow (or with crawlers or leeches). We fished each morning (~6:30am to 9am) with Lindy Rigs and jigs, afternoon (1pm-3pm) with jigs, and evening (~6:30pm to 9pm) with slip bobbers and jigs. Probably should have fished more after dark, but not everyone in the family is into fishing so we came back in.

Thanks for all the local info guys...ended up buying about 6 dozen from Northern Bait...Great Service!...and managed to catch a quite a few walleyes on Big Sand. Most of the fish came from the deep weedlines 30' - 35'...good to see a strong population of 15" - 16" fish, caught a few bigger ones between 22" and 26" but most of the fish were keepers.
