Finally! Red Lake!

4 posts in this topic

OMG! Been waiting all season and finally I get to come up to Red. Been working too much, while pondering the thought of pulling up a slab/eye out of the whole at the office. Got a booking this weekend fri/sat/sun. Now after reading the same post for so many times. I need to clearify some stuff, if you all can help...

1. Extension: Will be cruising out and about in a portable during the day, will a 12" extention be enough on a Jiffy STX to reach through the ice?

2. My main artillary consist of Red glow and green glow:Varmits, Rattln Buckshots, demons, and hooks. Will that be enough to tackle the weekend?

3. Weather Conditions? Will I survive hole hoppin with a Big Buddy in a portable(clam 2000)?

4. From your experience's, when are the "HOT BITE" times, in order to plan accordingly of when to eat at sleeper or should I just keep fishing?

5. 2 lbs or 4lb or 6 lb line?

6. Last, Jack's or Captain?

Any advice appreciated. This is a very much anticipated trip (sadly probably 1st and last for this season). Thx guys!

The person you booked the sleeper should be able to answer the questions you have asked. They are out there everyday.

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
