I never have, but i read this site religously. From everything I have ever read you can expect to catch fish at anytime of day on Red. If it didnt cost $75.00 a gallon I would be out of the concrete jungle and fishing there this weekend.

I fished the other night way into the dark hours and the fishing was steady.

Now remember Red always was a night crappie bite until the last couple of seasons they went little more towards daytime...depending on snow cover and ice conditions we could be back to a solid night bite again this year.

I live for that night bite! Around 6 o'clock it's game on!We've gone up to Red for a few years now and last year decided to go to Devil's Lake instead, (in January). Boy what a difference. The night time when I get most excited everything shuts right down there. Really tough to get used to. Back to Red this year...

Every time I have stayed on RED those pesky walleyes wink.gif would bite all night. Every time we tried to lay down we would hear a rattle reel. This went on about every 15minutes. My girl wanted to sleep so I had a good night pulling up fish that were to large to keep.

Needless to say I like fishing Red anytime of the day or night.

Enjoy your trip and remember to do business with the local establishments.

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings

      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter

      Good to know.  Thanks for the update

      Thanks for your updates Cliff . Out of curiosity , if this date holds true of Monday April 30th for the start of this years event , would you happen to know how this date sits with past late ice out years , for instance 1996 , 2013 ?
