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.

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
