Hot Bite Fishing presents

Upper Red Lake Slabs-Monster Pike-Walleye
by FishingMN Pro Staff:
Diane & Mike Zellmer - Drake Motel - Blackduck MN.

Watch as huge Red Lake slab after slab come in. A plastics only bite as well to be discovered. 15+ pound pike come in and plenty of walleyes that think they are crappies. Watch as young Kyle literally hammers everything before they can get to his parents rods.
This video is a current Hot Bite Fishing opportunity and was taken this past Friday on Upper Red Lake just north of Blackduck MN.

I really liked the "snapshot" feature! Real cool! I enjoyed watching the Drake crew enjoying themselves!! They are usually so tied up pleasing customers, It's nice to see them get out on the water!!

Could have been a tad closer at times, but nice over all!

Wow!!

Thanks folks!

Yah we had a great time!

I was a bit nervous, I expected that pike to either snap or bite me off any second. Its always a rush catching big fish on light tackle. A technique I have used for years has always been backreeling...at least till I could adjust the drag! Its help me land many big fish on light line when taken by suprise.

Look for only more good things to come!

Cool Video Rick.

I especially like the cameraman in the rental boat fighting a big pike without a landing net. Sounds like a situation I would get myself into! wink.gif

Rick (LB)~Just finished watching the video and thought it turned out great! Kyle got a kick out of it too! What a great day on the water that was, lots of slab crappies, some nice pike, beautiful walleye caught and released ranging in size from 12" to Kyle's 24"er and the sheephead were biting like crazy too. I think Darin is now hooked on Upper Red Lake after that day!

What a perfect day out on the open water, limits of slabs were caught by all our folks here so the cleaning room was busy and we added several photos to our Guest Photos section of our site, and to top the day off..a big fish fry!

That northern was a monster pushing 20 lbs, even though I told BigDar it was 15 lbs (he's been whining about that). There was no way I was going to miss getting this on tape for all of you to see. So forget the net... I'm saying to myself..I'm getting good footage here!!!!

Watch as BigDar panics, telling me over and over to get the net. Of course I'm not budging to net that monster just yet. Like I said, there's footage in that bruiser pike yet!

When I did finally one hand net it that pike did not fit into the net and it was a big net. You didn't see it, but Darin was in sheer panic stage while I was netting that big girl. He really was because it was his Biggest Pike ever!!!

I think BigDar now respects my netting skills. As soon as you see the camera leave that swimming pike I netted it a thrashing monster pike one handed. Sorry BigDar for the heart attack. smile.gif

Oh, and did I tell you he caught it on a Berkley Powerbait 3" Minnow Chart/shad?

Does anyone else think BigDar is proud of his biggest pike ever? He sure seems to want to make sure I have it recorded well for posterity smile.gif

Fish like that brings out the kid in all of us grin.gif

What do YOU think? Do you like the videos?

Should we keep producing them for you?

We need YOUR input!

Please, let us know what you think. smile.gif

I suggest another format.. perhaps MPEG. Since us Mac users cannot view MWV files.

      We fished the small lake a few week back the water was really high. No luck with bass around the pads tried Texas rigged worms and spinner baits, we did find crappies in 8-10" around Lilly pads and reeds crappies were caught on panfish leaches and small glow jigs.

      Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

      A group of us are planning on getting together on Lake Osakis for the day on 8/18/18 for a day of fishing and a midday picnic at the Battle Point Park.  We would enjoy connecting with some fellow anglers from the site to connect and have some fun.  Osakis is a great lake for big gills, slab crappies, nice walleye, pike, smallmouth and largemouth bass.  The best walleye bite has been during low light periods.  Sunfish and crappie bite all day.  We plan on taking a break around noon at the Battle Point Park for lunch.  Right now tentatively looking to connect around 8-9 at the access.  Otherwise look for a red and white Warrior and connect with me, "Borch" on the water I'd you'd like.   I might even have a fishing report really fresh fishing report for you.

      I bought a used boat and I had the dealer install my Lowrance HDS on the dash. There was already two Lowrance units that came with the Boat. One mounted in the bow and the other in the dash. So when the dealer installed my HDS, the networked it to the older unit from the dash. My sonar on the HDS would only work if the dash unit was on. I really don’t know the advantages of doing this?  Anyways, this past weekend I landed the boat and the dash unit wouldn’t power up. I checked and I did have power going to the unit. Hence no sonar. I had to go old school and caught 10 eyes! Lol so my question is how do I bypass the network so I can just run the HDS? Thanks!
