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.

      Well never made it to Monticello but did make it to the rum 2 smallies one 17inch and one 14 inch One on float and fly black and blue jig other on a white berkley gulp jerk shad.   And you can target walleyes and smallies every winter with a long rod you just need to know where to go

      Hi all new to the forum, only have 2 days left for fishing the elusive eyes.  Any input on depths and lakes to go on in the Detroit Lakes area would be great

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps
