Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any report on perch in the Reddoor area? Thinking about going in that area this weekend, any help would be great.

Was up at Red Door Friday with my 3 1/2 yr old grandson on his very first fishing trip ever with grampa on his birthday. Got a 14" monster perch on his new sponge bob fishing pole...unreal. Saw many large groups of jumbos which would only sniff baits and swim on. One took a small minnow on a gold gem-n-eye and the rest were on "fresh water" shrimp {Vados had them}. Bellys were full of them and other critters. Pat is a sweetheart up there. Good luck.

My buddy and i sucked it up and braved the elements and went out yesterday mourning. Set up about 830 Between red door and barnacles. Dropped my jigging spoon down and it didn't even hit bottom and we had a nice 13" perch. Lets just say that was the highlight of the day. We ended with 4 keepers around 10". My buddy lost something bigger on a tip-up but that was it. With the temp. barely getting above 0 I can wait to see how they will bite when its nice out.

Our house is/has been out of Red Door the whole winter. We have been up almost every weekend, including the last two with bad weather. Had the camera down, nothing but small perch. Did get one eelpout about 6 pounds. No perch takers, didnt' even see any jumbo's, just small ones. We moved it to the east of their road-that's where they were biting two weeks ago, not the case now. Or at least it wasn't for us. I'm heading back up Thurs eve-Sat. am. I may be lake hopping if it is slow again. Hopefully next years ice bite is better.

Returned late last nite after what i thought was going to be a up and back trip within the same day!!! Needless to say that wasnt the case! Headed out to the rocket, and omg was there snow out there! Farther out we got the deeper it got! I knew full well before i decided to go out that far that there wasnt gunna be any roads, but man what a pain in the arse it was getn out there! If it had not been for chains on my 3/4 ton and the help of my buddy with his truck with 35's I prolly still wouldnt be here writing this now! After the wind picked up sunday nite, it blew our path shut! Finally got ahold of the chains yesterday and started the trek back to shore with the houses. Made it to the resort road around 6:30 finally and headed home. Oh ya and the fishin, well needless to say there all still swimming out there minus one stinkin pout! Terrible fishin, the worst i've seen in my years on Mille Lacs!

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.
    • JeremyCampbell
      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.
    • Borch
      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.
    • kelly-p
      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!
    • leech~~
      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.
