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.

      Day two was a bit different than day one for us.  Much slower mid day resulting 50 fish for the day.  A couple of 23" being the biggest.    ESE wind caused a different approach Today that challenged me a bit.  As well as the river was VERY BUSY today!   Water conditions appeared to stay fantastic as far as current and clarity,  should be a nice week ahead for those coming up.

      Buddy of mine just drove past the Big and Littlefork rivers on hwy11, said ice bank to bank on both. Even saw fresh tracks from snowmobiles on them. So for whatever that's worth guys and gals.

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.
