Yup....

Good Luck!

Ken

p.s. when all the above fail, throw out a crappie jig on a bobber... those Red Lake pike love 1/16th oz. jigs and fatheads....

You could try one, but I bet the DNR wouldn't like to see your tackle box?

All I was stating was the above mentioned pike tatics all work on Red, some better at certain times, some worse at certain times... but the venerable crappie jig always seems to bring in the pike! grin.gif

Good Luck!

Ken

      Never did report back from last weekend.  We fished Friday evening through Sunday morning.  Friday and Saturday were pretty slow, between 5 of us we had about 6 keepers nothing over 15", and were fishing pretty hard, moving a lot.  Got up early Sunday morning and had a great bite on a main lake reef, we ended up keeping a limit between the 3 of us that were out there.  The other two were pretty disappointed they slept in.  We were sitting in 28' of water and caught most of our fish on minnow heads and a rattle jig, as well as a couple slot fish on a shiner under a tip up.

      Are the catfish still biting decent out there? Usually make it up earlier in the year have not made it up yet this year but I'm looking to come up one of the next couple evenings.
