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

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I sent you a private message.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
