Weekend WW Report

5 posts in this topic

4th year going with a group of 8 and once again we had a blast! I have seen a couple posts lately about people really upset about the fishing and or their rental situations and I want to voice an opinion. Its HALF about fishing and HALF about the crew your with. First, they are rental ice shacks that have heat and beds. Second, its BYO beer and booze. If the fishing is slow...Cocktail. When they bite, catch 'em then continue to cocktail! How can a person complain about a poor weekend away from work, daily grind, and the busy city? For those of you who love the experience of the great north... I'm with you! For those of you who cannot find fun there either fishing or just plain hanging out with the guys (and or gals,) find another place that makes you happy. A place like Red Lake deserves solid individuals with common sense who take it for what it is...a great place be!

Fishing report for all 8; 7 crappies, 50 or more walleyes (plenty of keepers if thats what you want,)and a heck of a lot of cocktails!!!

Another fantastic annual trip for the crew. laugh.gif

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!
