How clear is the water?

Recommended Posts

The Freak

Going to be making the first trip of the year to Red next week and was wondering how clear the water is. Should I bring the underwater camera with or just leave it at home?

I don't know about this year, but last year I brought my camera and was able to see just fine down there. There was no snow on the ice which allowed more light through. My father was using the camera to watch his crappie minnow swim around when a 34" pike slammed it. We were in 13-14 fow.

You can see prety good with a camera. Yesterday we used a camera to locate a dropped weding ring...could see it just fine, getting it out is another story.

I know on sunny days with some of the snow removed along side the house we can see the jigs on the other side of a 16x24 sleeper house and some areas you can only see three feet.

The water looks really clear to me this year. Last night in a house we have, you could see your jig and the bottom just before sundown. I've never heard of this on red before now.

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs
