Night Fishing for Eyes

Recommended Posts

whateverisbiting

I get up very early for work so I have not done a lot of night fishing.  Thinking I might try to get out for eyes this year.  Looking for tips on trolling shallow water like 5-10' inside weed line (that's where most boats seem to be at night).

 

1) Is a gas motor ok or does it need to be electric?

 

2) Live bait or plugs?

 

3) Long lining or short lining matter?

 

4) go to plugs to try (color, type and size)

Just scratching the surface of what I think I know.  🤣

 

The fish and other fishermen keep teaching me new things.  😎

      Looking to fish the red for the first time, never fished a river before. Just looking for some advice for finding some walleye/sauger around the FM area, looking to stay within 10-15 minutes of town. I have some gum drop jigs and plastics i plan on using. Just maybe looking for some advice on where to even begin the hunt, or even what to look for? I appreciate any help. Thank you!

      Looking for spots near the F/M area on the Red to catch catfish. 
      What tributaries are known for catfish or other species?
      Where does a person go to look for catfish on the Red River?
      Do dams work well?

      Personally, I am a new member and I am looking to go guiding with someone for either walleye or catfish at this time of year. 
      My email address is [email protected] Cell phone number is 3202981047. 
      I have fished the Red River in the past but not with much luck. I don't know where to go specifically for spots. Looking for friends/buddies to show me.

      With the crazy restrictions on Mille Lacs and the uncertain opener are any of you still planning to fish Mille Lacs?  Will you hit other lakes or just going to stay home this summer and hope things get back to normal?  The very dedicated Walleye guys are really going to need to adjust or hit other lakes.
       
      Businesses are going to get clobbered.
       
      Sad situation. Hopefully there is something left in 2021.

      2013 Ranger 1850

      This is the cleanest 2013 multi sport fishing boat that you’ll find. Powered by a Yamaha 150 four stroke, this is a great performing boat. The interior, exterior, motor and trailer are in awesome condition. Features include:

      Ranger Custom Trailer w/spare tire.
      Yamaha 150 four stroke.
      Minn Kota 80 Terrova trolling motor w/iPilot.
      Lowrance HDS 7 & HDS 5 depth/fish finders.
      Onboard 2 bank battery charger.
      Large Livewell.
      Bait Livewell.
      12+ rod locker.
      AM/FM/CD Stereo.
      4 swivel seats.
      2 flip on seat.
      Snap in carpet.

      Swim ladder.
      Ski pylon.
      Removable bow cushions
      Built in cooler
      Interior LED courtesy lights
      Lots of storage

      I’m sure there are things that I’ve missed in the above list of options. This is the perfect fishing boat, and can easily double as a family runabout for skiing, tubing and cruising around.

      Boat is located in Detroit Lakes MN.  Please call or text for more information. 701-371-509nine

      A group of high school buddies and some of their family make an Annual trip up to Baudette, MN to fish Walleyes on Lake of the Woods. I look forward to this trip each year! Since this is an Annual Trip we all put some money and bragging rights on the line for the Angler who can catch the biggest fish of the weekend, take home the Trophy, $400 Cash and call themselves "Mr. Walleye" for the next 365 days. Watch the first full day of fishing out of Ballards Resort and see 2 new PB's!

      When will pools 2, 3, and 4 start producing the quality & quantity that fishing shows are made of?
       
      Last Tuesday there was a decent number of rigs in the lot at 494. We messed around from shore and only managed wind bites. There wasn't a bunch of time or energy spent casting plastics & drowning worms,,,but it was sooooo nice to play with a long rod. With any luck the shore ice will be gone in a jiffy and then it's game on. Can't wait to stick a biggun and let her go. 
       
      Good Luck & Be Safe!

      Isaac was at it again this evening!  He has now broke his PB 3 times since Friday.  Friday he caught a 19 1/2" that weighted 4lbs 10oz, then Saturday the 5lb 2oz, 20 3/4" girl above.    Now today, he catches another 20 3/4" but this one weighted 5lbs 6oz!  He is on fire!   Or, I am just good luck!

      I was just testing your knowledge of geography and you got a perfect score.

      I emailed manicks yesterday morning and voiced my concerns, 3 hours later my dock was in, but not the lift. It looks like they put all the docks in on the Partridge River. We got 6 more walleyes last night, 1- 12" and the others over 22". Back home now.
    • Wakemup
      Seconded! I took down 3 pines on Sunday and a brief but refreshing dip followed.   Manick’s hadn’t been to Wakemup Narrows, so it was a working weekend around the place- fun to read the fishing reports, keep them coming!
    • PRO-V
      You know what? I double checked with them and it was Sand. Sorry for any confusion.😜🤣
    • tacklejunkie
      Gave it a go over the weekend. Nothing F and F  but did get our a limit. Harnesses with the standard chartreuse blades trolling at 1.4-1.6. Did play with some flicker minnows and flicker shads and nothing on the minnows but did get two and released a nice one on the shads   Just troll the flats. The fish LOVE those crawlers.        
    • james_walleye
      Every fish we caught was on boulder points. Not much going on the normal shorelines and docks that we like to fish. 
    • smurfy
      🤣 funny guy. That tree line kinda looks like just south of the access but dead giveaway were the rushes!!   Looks alot like sand to me.
    • PRO-V
      My stepdaughter and her husband figured they would try Peterson since they were close. I guess she got this 19 1/2" this afternoon.
