Lower Red predictions

6 posts in this topic

The Lower Red is in tremendous shape and from recent observations I've been making, there seems to be a ton of channels in here at this time. This will make for an absolute, action packed opener on May 12th! For those who are headed this way, you won't be disappointed!

Stu- I've been thinking of planning a trip up there in late August...what's the fishing like then? I want to get a hold of some of those channels, it looks like fun. I'll probably end up giving you a call when I can firm up plans with the guys...

Late August can be awesome on the Red. The channels are beginning to focus on the task of pork'n up for winter. When they get into this hunting mode, the action can be absolutely incredible! I'll be more than happy to explain the patterns. Ed, you and "little" Shannon better get your butts up here ASAP! The river is in the best shape I've seen it in years and it seems to be stuffed with kitties! There's also a huge head of goldeye in here as well right now, small wonder why there's so many cats! I'll be on the water Saturday and I'll post an update on the results.

I should also mention that Lake Winnipeg can be interesting in late August. The action can be great for "slab" white bass and walleye and it's only a thirty five minute drive over there!

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
