Redtails?

6 posts in this topic

A group of us are heading up on the 28th of Sept. Are there any baitshops that sell Redtails in Deer River or north towards Big Cut Foot Sioux? If you know the price it would be nice to know, also. What are the chances of getting a campsite at Deer Lake or Seelye Point this time of the year without reserving? Will it be busy up there? Thanks in advance.

I was able to enjoy great fishing on Winnie last weekend, even after an extreme cold front came through on Fri. night. We used jigs and fatheads in the shallows ( 7-8 fow ), and caught lots of walleyes, perch, and a few northerns- when they didn't bite us off. Also caught walleyes on nightcrawlers ( Lindy-rigging ) in 15 fow on the bar edges. Therefore, I'm not sure if red-tails are neccessary to enjoy a good time.

They are getting $10 a dozen in Cass Lake for Redtails. Sounds like there are other minnows that work just as good even nightclawlers are working.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
