Night bite?

13 posts in this topic

I have not ice fished Upper Red since the walleyes have become legal so this may be a dumb question but is there a night bite for walleyes on this lake? I know crappies will bite at night but wasn't sure if the walleyes will hit at night. Any information would be great.

If you want to sleep don't put the rattle reels down at night. My girl and I were up over valentines and has a reel going off atleast every 25 minutes. All walleyes except for one lone 14inch crappie.

I can think of worse reasons to be woke up. Fish on.

The last time I was on URL we were in about 10' of water the first night and the walleyes bit all night. The next night we were in 13.5' and barely had a bite.

We were just up for the weekend and spent two night. Didn't catch a fish from 7pm to 6:30am. Once the sun went down nothin until about 1/2 hour before sunrise. We had 8 rattle reels down the whole time. Lively minnows, lines set at the depth as during the day when we caught fish. Once that sun came up though, fish on!!

Always had good luck at night on walleyes. Seems about every hour or so you'll get some action.Reminds me of an old girl friend. She told me it was either her or fishing. I do kinda miss her smirk.gif

A week ago we were out about 6 miles and didn't get a lousy bite all night. Guess we shoulda been shallow. We sure had good action during the day though.

We were out about 6 miles and the guys that stayed in the permanent had great walleye action all night long. In fact monday night they didnt get any sleep. The 3 crappies we got monday also came between 9pm and 11pm.

I was up last Saturday night. The fish bit well until about 9:30 or 10:00 PM and then completely shut down until 6:15 the next morning. Solid action except during those hours. We were in 13 feet.

Was up there last weekend and really didn't catch any walleyes from 10pm til 5 am. I did however catch a crappie and a perch during the middle of the night.

      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!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.

      I recently had a chance to go fishing with my friend who recently purchased a Vexilar fishfinder. However we find it incredibly difficult to identify fish in the Sonar image. We tried even the fish alarm under settings but it didn't work reliably, going off at times with nothing on the Sonar image that looked like fish.   Any tips of what we should be looking for in the Sonar image?

      Getting the 6" clam plate hopefully this week. Picked up a brush less 20v dewalt on sale for black Friday. After using moose's drill a couple times last year I am all in on the drill plate!
