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

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.

      Considering how old a laker has to be before reaching reproductive maturity, a slot may help.  The only thing I'd worry about there is having to put a bleeder back down the hole because it wasn't legal.  Then if a person wanted to keep their limit, that would just mean a wasted fish should they be able to get two more.   When I first started laker fishing, catching and keeping "my two" was a given if I were to have that good of a day.  Then it changed to releasing pretty much everything over the mid - 20 inch range unless it bled.  Now 1 fish in the 24 inch range would be my perfect weekend limit if I could choose.   When a person gets introduced to these addictive ghosts, it's tough to put em back.  There's a lot of excitement and pride in earning such a prized fish.  And I really enjoy eating them.  But in the case of Burntside, I would support a 1 fish limit, no slot.

      I decided to go watch them pull it out.   Never seen that before.   While they are working on pulling it out, another car is driving at them down the riverbed.   The officer has to run over and shoe them away.   The DNR might need to close that to traffic since there are a lot of dumb people.   Don

      Great article; very educational.  Thanks for sharing.  I would be interested to know if having a slot limit on lake trout would help populations like it has with walleyes.  If so, why hasn't the DNR implemented it yet?

      Mr. B, Welcome to FM! June is almost always a good tome to fish for bass on the shorelines! Plenty of good bass country on the whole lake too! I do not fish for bass much but there are plenty of people on this site that do so you should get some good info.! Cliff
