Weekend Fishing Report

Recommended Posts

fishgirlmn

Well I went up to Red on Saturday. Found a spot about 7 miles on Hillman's road. Fished in 13 Feet of water. Although fishing was a bit slow, managed to catch 7 slabber crappies and a couple of small walleyes. Was a bit windy, but was a good trip all together for a day trip. Didn't get home till 2am!

Went to Winnie on Monday. Went in at High Banks Resort for 4 miles and fished in 22 feet of water. I must say the lady at the resort was very helpful! She put us right on the fish. Caught a bucket full of nice size perch and 3 keeper walleyes. Had the camera and boy the schools just kept coming in! I will have to say that the fishing was a lot more exciting! Right at sunset, the fish turned on and I couldn't keep my hook baited fast enough. I plan on going back soon!!!!!! It is closer than red, and you can keep 6 walleyes. Well I will have to wait now till Friday to do anymore fishing, but you can bet I will be going again!!!

Good report and good to hear you had some action. It's always good to come home with dinner when you make a road trip. Good luck fishing this winter!

I live in Hibbing. The trip to Winnie is only about an hour for me. It was my first time there and I was surprised on how close it was. I will definately be making another trip up there real soon. Would like to go next week when the weather will be nice, but I would go anytime because I am a fishing addict!

HOW FAST DO YOU DRIVE? I'm from Hibbing and have done the Hibbing to GR trek often lately, and that is about 45 minutes. I'd say Winnie is about another 45 minutes to 1 hour away. It's a great lake to fish, though, that's for sure.

I drive fast! Need to get to the fish. I also checked miles and it is about 66 miles. I checked mapquest and it is 46 miles to Deer River and from there it is about 20 miles. I don't know how fast you drive, but its about an hour for me, maybe an hour and 5 or 10 minutes. LOL!!!

There is no way Winnie is 45 minutes to an hour away from Rapids unless you are driving a riding lawn mower!!!! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif I can drive from Grand Rapids to Bemidji in an hour!

It is only 34 miles from Hibbing to Grand Rapids. When they get the bypass done around Coleraine and Bovey that will be really nice!

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!

      My advice for ice fishing on Vermilion would be to avoid high traffic areas.  I always believed this before, but this weekend seemed to validate that theory. On Thursday my neighbors in our ice fishing village decided to plow roads, driveways, and parking lots all around, and I only caught 4 little walleyes. Friday I planned to take my portable out to an isolated spot, but none of my village neighbors were out that day, and the fishing was very good.  I caught 14 walleyes that day, including 21" and the pictured 26" and 24" slotters. Saturday I thought that maybe the fishing was just picking up so I fished in my permanent again.  Caught only 2 walleyes while my neighbors proceeded to have a big family gathering with many vehicles going back and forth. Love fishing in my permanent house, but the next time it starts to get busy in the neighborhood, I am moving out with my portable.

      Who’s worried about a jacket showing proof of action when the catching is that good?! 
    • eyeguy 54
