Late Nighter From St. Cloud

5 posts in this topic

I know its kind of late notice but we decided today to make the trip to Red tonight instead of tomorrow morning. We are leaving around 10 tonight and just wondering if we should try to pick up bait before we leave or if there is anywhere we can stop at on the way up that is open late. Thanks in advance for the help. Hopefully I'll get to meet a few of you guys on saturday. If you see a green Toyota Tundra stop and say hi.

There might be some places that are open someplace down the road, but as far as I know, nothing is open up there that late. I'm heading over there tonight too, I hope to be there by 12:30am. I'm getting my bait here in Thief River Falls before I leave.

You can stop at Tesoro in Bemidji, just west of the stop lights by Walmart and airport junction. If you are heading north on 71 from the south the stop light at 197 and 71 take a left and it is right there next to best western!

      Thanks for having me Minnesota. I wasn't able to float the Ottertail river but I did fish the lake every morning. Most fish the first 3 days came on top water whopper plopper. The last day, the water temperature heated up to almost 80 so I changed it up a little bit and fished deep water 10-20 feet and caught fish deep. Here's some of the better fish from this week. The fishing up here is great. Can't wait to make it back.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow
