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.

      So a few questions about Winni as I have never been there before. Do you find that the fishing tapers off as winter progresses, for example if heading up there for Perch and Walleye would you chose January, February or March, or doesn't it seem to matter much?  Also what is the night vs daytime bite like? Trying to plan a few days up there with the wife and trying to decide when to go and if a sleeper is worthwhile or just do a daytime shack.   Any thoughts are appreciated.     Thank you

      The Helix 5 gives you the option to view different screens. The view button option shows separate flasher screen, sonar , gps , others. Screen views will run side by side in different combinations, but flasher screen only works by itself. Great little unit. I use mine for gps . Ram mount on handlebar
