Looking for fish

4 posts in this topic

My uncle just came in from Montana and would like to get him on some hot spots. We are heading to Walker this week-end for the eelpout festival mostly for the party. Next week though we would like to do some serious fishing. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Red lake would be a good day trip or Winnie. I would check out the forums on those two lakes. You can usually get some good info on the locations etc. I fished Red and went out on hillman's road about 7 miles and fished 13 feet of water. I also went to winnie and caught a lot of perch, some nice size ones, and a few keeper walleyes. Went out of High Banks resort. The people there were really nice. Hope this has helped some!

if you are thinking about the slab fest i would do it. first off, you can't beat fishing on Red, and secondly, fishing with FM members would be a blast. If you have never caught a red lake crappie you are in for a treat

      What do you think Smurfy? No answer maybe we better send out a search party.

      A good ice fishing suit ( ice armor, striker gear etc) or waders just put layers underneth. That's what I would do.

      I hear ya on the ice safety.  I am trying to plan appropriately for possibly fishing in 3-6" of standing water.   Thanks guys!

      Hey guys!  Just started the a topic discussion for the Rainy River Conditions.  I did check the river today and there is some open water east of Birchdale Landing and posted some pictures of that Landing and Franz Jevne.  Thanks!

      February 23rd, 2017:
         I went and checked the river just before 9:00 am this morning.  The river is open just east of Birchdale with only a narrow spot open.  East of Franz Jevne (about 2 miles east of Birchdale) the River is almost completely open with some shore ice.  The temperature was 19 degrees and it looks like we are suppose to stay below freezing until Sunday with a high of 32 degrees and then it will get cold again.  It is hard to say how the river will open this year with cold weather coming again but here is what it looked like this morning.  Depending on the weather we may not go and check the river again until Monday sometime.   Where you can see pavement is the Birchdale Landing and the other access is at Franz Jevne:
