Wind

5 posts in this topic

Here in Brainerd we have had some wind for the past week or so. Is it similar to what is going on up on URL? I have a old military friend coming to visit and I wanted to get up there take a lash at some crappies. The wind issues are something I'm trying to avoid. Any input appreciated.

The wind is always a factor on Red Lake and it has been blowing for a few days, best you can do is come up and launch and se what happens. Remember you can launch out of the east side at Westwinds or the River for East wind, North wind and calm days, South winds, calm days and South west winds Morts on the south shore is a good place to launch.

Just remember Upper Red is not a pond, it is 100,000+ acres of wave making machine so try to be aware of the weather to come to save your hide and the weather previous to save your day of fishing, when it is calm fish it like a shield lake and when the weather has been rough fish it like a river while keeping your eye on the sky, you do not want to be a spot on this map in rough seas:

Work took me away for a few weeks. I'll tell you the people in Chicago are so envious of the fishing we have here. Kinda cool to have so many think so much of our backyard. So I didn't get up there DW how did it go for you?

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
