Annual fishing trip- Advice please

Recommended Posts

GSB Ice Man

Hey guys,

Last year we went to Red Lake and didn't have a very good bite. So this year we are making the trek to LOW. We are bring a wheel house on Friday and staying till Sunday. We probably won't move much as dad is not very mobile.

Any advice on access to use or where to fish?? Also, should we just stay deeper because we won't be moving.

Thanks and good luck fishing

Talk to one of the resorts up there and if you throw them some money they will put you on a good bite. i would think for 40 bucks you could be setup on a very productive spot.

I would say you do not have to throw money at anyone this year. If you needed to have a spot plowed for your wheelhouse then maybe.....unless a ton of snow falls you can move around pretty easily and should not need anyone to plow you out a spot. I would say just keep checking reports and hope you hit them. Pray for a steady barometer. Good luck.

Theres no snow at the moment but the plow driver. A lot of times if your bringing your own house out someone will lead you out to get you to the right spot if you tell them your unfamiliar and could use some help.

Morris or Adrian's Road and go until you can see the majority of the houses (towards the end of the road) and either pull off Earlier or go farther beyond if you can. I did that on Morris point and stayed in 29' when the majority of the houses were in 30-31'. We caught about 120 fish and by the end of the trip the resort houses were moving into the area that I had to myself for four days.

^ ask any bait shop up there and they will tell you where to go. Dont set up on top of people. You can be a total fishing fool and still slay the fish up there. right now its mostly fishing flats around 30 feet of water. Drop the house down and start rippin lip. we had a slow trip last weekend, only around 60 eyes but quality was very high.

      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)

      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?

      Haven’t fished the river for weeks and came home to high, muddy water so I doubt I will for another week.  I’d focus on shorelines and whatever backwater I could find at this time if I did go.

      It was slow for me Tuesday afternoon and Thursday in Frazer / Smarts Bay. Wednesday was very good in 20-25 feet leeches / crawlers on a Lindy or a jig. Absolutely beautiful weather!

      My wife and I had a good morning on Friday with bottom bouncers, spinners and crawlers in 20-24 ft.  Caught 9, threw back 3 18-19 in, 2 13-14 in.

      I would head over the hill into the back country and fish the streams and lakes. You will have much better success catching fish. Bring bug spray

      Lori has some nice gills and some okay crappies normally. Green has nicer sized crappies and gills. Ann lake has been kicking out some great fish. Check out fishing club.

      Streams won’t have much of anything to offer this time of year. Maybe a couple tiny smolt rainbows. There are all kinds of shorefishing spots in the area though. Stream mouths are always the obvious spots to try. Spoons and spinners.

      How was the trip? I was on the lake Tuesday and the weather was as good as it gets!
