Red Slows But There Are Those DAYS

Recommended Posts

Guest

Regretfully I have been unable to follow up on my first report until now! One point I did not clarify was that my first report on the "Greenbacks are In" was a report for the weekend Dec 16-17 (That's why I mentionned that going on the ice required a person to be intrepid!). Generally the first few weeks after ice goes on are the very best and angling tends to wane after that. All that aside I had a chance to spend a few days before the New year on the ol' Red and had 1 good day for three. My best fish was 25" and it came at the bottom of a break approx 20ft. at 8:45 a.m.. The fish that day bit until 10 and resumed at 3:45 for the evening bite. We also caught 4 Saugers during the day. Our Walleye total was seven for two anglers (my guest caught five and I caught the bigger fish!). We were fishing Northland Whistlers chart/green 3/8 oz. (with a Lindy style stinger) tipped with 3-1/2"-4" lively chubs. I acquired thje live bait from Basswood Baits (a commercial bait dealer in western Manitoba). The other two days were relatively slow with two and three fish days respectively. I suspect we're now in that winter phase where morning and evening are prime periods for contacting "active" fish. In the past anglers have done well during this period <trophy fish -- not many but quality> on a section just in front of the golf course (two years ago that's where Manitoba's biggest 'eye was caught) and in the channel-on a turn just past the steam plant. I hope this helps anyone who might be coming up for the weekend. Good luck and tight lines

Just around the corner on the point across from the steam plant is one of my favorite spots. Tight to the channel and just around the sand point headed back to Selkirk near the golf course is a large deep pool that is a backwater area, a very good spot.

Thank's for the tip's Dan, keep us posted and check in on the other boards often, we all could use your input.

you are getting within a half mile or so of a very good spot.... 2 winters ago this spot produced 8 between 8 and 10 for me... silver pimple with a glow spot and excalibur hooks... my honey hole when things are tuff elsewhere...(usually not a shack within a mile but i think people are catching on). also looks like the ducks study will have a lot to choose from this year... they have been netting them like crazy this year there and i will be checking it out soon... have not had much time so far...

Dark 30 the Red and MN have an agreement that allows residence from both state's to fish the Red on either side with a license from either state. So any dam on the river is open to fish in season.

The MN regulations state that you fallow the reg's in the MN if your a MN residents fishing the RED if the reg's differ in MN than you must fallow that reg.

All that boils down to is look at the MN reg's for any variations of seasons or tackle restrictions.

I had previously misstated the 2 line regulation on the Red River as it applies to the residents of MN.

MN residents can use 2 lines on the Red but not up into the tributaries on the MN side.

MN reg's change way too often so read them and if a question pop's up to the way they read be safe and contact the MN DNR for a clarification.

Sorry for the misinformation and thank you Brad Dokken for catching it and educating me to the proper line reg's. I appreciate that Brad.

Ya know I did know that but I must have just had a brain fart that day?

I best be up on that as I will be working with the MN DNR this season on the creel survey, just as I did last season for ND G&F!

      Great job guys!! I got 8 shots off the first one was good then I missed 7 in a row. Gordie got one and well river rat got zero. It was a hoot to hunt with them.

      I have a 2018 ice castle with the GS trailer frame. Are you supposed to drill holes to let water out of the tubes or do the new GS trailers have holes in them already? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Been awhile since I posted, busy summer but finally got the kayak back out on the Mississippi to chase after them fall smallies. The bite was really good and managed a new personal best at 21"! Bait of choice is my wacky worm, they never can resist! I'll be chasing these till ice is on the lakes. Best fishing is right around the corner, goodluck everyone!    Video:  https://youtu.be/PJOZITB0ol0
