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

      Leech, my experience exactly, I hated the thing! I'm a Mister Twister Piranha guy, it's a little heavier duty than the green ones but never had trouble with the green ones either over the many years I've used them. I can use a filet knife on those rare occasions we do a shore lunch somewhere.

      Be cool if there was such a thing. Being people are getting so much more interest in pout it wouldn't be a bad thing I'd say.

      I don't personally own a smmity sled but I've herd many great things about them.

      Thats what I thought.  But I am sure that is what the guy said

      I think some people are obligated to keep what they catch. Me I'll keep fish but not very often at least in the winter. (Not on Mille lacs) Mille lacs you have the chance at catching a trophy sure maybe it would be cool to keep it but for a lot of us letting a trophy go is as good as keeping it at least IMHO.
