Recommended Posts

Going up to red in about a week and not quite sure what jigs/lures to buy. Does anyone know if hillmans sells tackle or any other place up there that would have a good idea as to what the fish are biting on? Thanks for your help.

Dr. Tackle and bait in Kelliher has an enormous selection of jigs, they sometimes have a decent fishing report but probably not as current or in depth as a resort on the lake. I am impressed with the number of jigs in there, tho... probably more than a store in a decent sized town.

If you're going through Blackduck on the way, Timberline Sports there on #71 has an enormous selection, as well as, live bait.

I had great luck last weekend with the jigs Shorty told me he had specially made. Plus I like to support them as they are simply "good people". We were having a pizza at the Bar last weekend, and (I think it was) BJ spent time telling us stories about all the pictures in there - and on our way out handed my buddy's kid a big handful of jigs. Made the kids day, and he caught a ton of walleye on them.

I vote Hillmans.

I was up to Red from Sunday to Thursday and had the best luck for walleyes on eye-droppers. i was useing the biggest size and in the super glow chub with the biggest fat head you can find. For some reason they like the big profile of the lures and minnows. Every day the three of us guys limited out and threw ALOT back that were over the slot.

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      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!
