Night Bite

Recommended Posts

fishingmedic

Myself along with a few friends are looking at our first trip to upper red and have a question. Last year we stayed in a sleeper on Winne hoping for a night bite which floped. Is there a night bite on upper red and would it be worth while to get another sleeper on red or not? any help would be great.

Thanks

Yes, there is a nite bite. It's kinda funny watching 4 guys trying to roll out of the cots when the rattle reels go off.

Get a sleeper.

Yes Red has a night bite. It does vary from year to year depending on snow cover and ice conditions/clarity. One thing that Upper Red has that is uniuqe is a HUGE pike night bite. Crazy deal to catch a 40" pike in your PJs at 3am.

Last march, I stayed up fishing untill 3am doing well with the fish. Told my cousin in law to wake me up in an hour. I went to bed and then he fell asleep later without waking me up. Before he did this he had opened the bail on the other poles so when they would get a bite we wouldn't lose them down the holes, and he could get to them. Well when we woke up at 7am grandpa was fighting a fish on his pole. He ended up pulling all of the other poles down the holes and up through his with a walleye on every pole. Talk about limiting out. LOL this year I'm setting the alarm on my phone.

      Now that sounds like a plan.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off.

      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
