Upper Red Lake Whooped me this past weekend!

4 posts in this topic

It doesn't happen very often...but I got skunked Saturday on Upper Red? Fished from 12pm till 6pm and caught absolutely nothin, nodda, zip, ziltch! Right away I was bit off by something, but after that I was just drowning minnows. I tryed just about everything...Crank baits, spinners, jigs, slip bobbers, slip rigs with floating jig heads, lindy rigs, etc. Tryed fast drifting, drifting with a sock out, anchoring, blah, blah, blah. Nothing worked?

I did try various depths and everything else. It was just my day to get skunked I guess? grin.gif

Oh well, I'll be back.

I am curious. Do shallow lakes like Red have a fall turn-over like lakes that are deeper?

With the way the wind blows I would guess it does not. If we have a couple of days of wind it seem to take a day or two for the lake to clear up and the fishing to get better. Thats what make it such a great ice fishing lake,no waves to stir up the water.Just wind and blizzard conditions when we get a 1/2 inch of snow with the wind.

I did go out with the canoe last thursday for 1 hour with out a bite all so.Let the ice beginn

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
