Red Wing or Pepin

12 posts in this topic

Some friends and myself are planning on fishing this Friday. Any recommendations on whether to put in at Red Wing and maybe work south, or put in at Lake City and fish Pepin? I haven't heard any reports from Pepin, and am wondering if things are heating up there, yet.

Also, is the Colville landing usable? I had heard it was under construction, but haven't been there myself.

Thanks.

With 2 tournaments this weekend it is going to busy. Fishing has been good. Hair jigs, minnows, ring worms are all working good. Coville is still under construction. I would launch at baypoint if I were heading out. Stop in and we will give you the latest report.

So Lake City would be busy Friday, too? Does the tournament start Friday, or is it pre-fishing? Are the tournaments based out of Red Wing or Lake City?

Thanks for any information. We may have to change plans.

don't let the touny scare you away there is plenty of water there. you just might want to get there early so you don't have to fight for a spot at the launch.

They will all be prefishing on friday. The tourney is out of Red Wing and most of the fishing will be in the southern part of the main channel, the backchannel, and the head of the lake as well if I had too guess.

The FLW Tour event start on Wednesday May 2nd. However, most guys will arrive on Friday or Saturday of this week to start prefishing. I believe there will be 150 boats fishing the FLW.

You talking walleye or bass? There's a toureny this weekend on pools 4,5 and 5a which is for bass. I think it's either KFAN or Fisher's of Men. I'll be on pool 2. grin.gif

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
