This Coming Weekend

4 posts in this topic

Greetings,

We plan on fishing Red Lake this weekend. Does anyone have any suggestions for finding fish. We are mainly looking for Crappies. I am also interested in the Walleye bite. Any help on location, bait, presentation, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Get way out by yourself, away from eeryone else and be portable, move around. Red and Green glow seems to be the deal. Good Luck

I see that you are from New Ulm! shocked.gifgrin.gif A couple of buddies (from new uln) and I are headed for the big pond this weekend! Drill, move drill, move drill, move... dont stop till you find them fish! Bring lots of gas for the auger and an extention! Get away from the crowds and you will do fine! Good luck!

Wow, what a weekend! We had great weather for the most part and the fishing was good. We easily got our Walleye limit and ended up with 26 Crappies. This was my first time catching URL Crappies, they are HUGE!! We even had a couple smaller ones which is good to see. We were out on the lake about 8 or 9 miles from Hilmanns. Seemed like 5:30pm-6:30pm was the best time to catch the Crappies. I don't think it mattered where you fished Walleye, they were biting everywhere.

Had a good trip, look forward to next time.

      make / manufacturer: Eskimo
      model name / number: Mako Upgraded to an electric auger and selling my old one. Runs great and has been well taken care of. Starts on 2-3 pulls every time. I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
