Say Eddy you mention something about current breaks by a deep bends and drops into the channel. Can this be better explained? what exactly are you talking about. My largest last fall was 25 1/2" from the fargo area. Where can I post my pic? CPR..... Catch, Photo, Release

I was commenting on the base of the drop into a channel near major river bends. This time of year you need to be tight to the drop and as much as possable out of the main current flow.

You could email your scanned photo to the contact address on the main page. It may be possable to have it posted, I am not responsible for posting pic's on the site but give it a shot.

Good to see it was a CPR, Ata-boy/girl!

ED,
Man I'm still pretty worked up about the post you made a few days ago about 16 lb. + walleyes netted out of the big Red. Is that true? Are you talkin' our stretch of river between Whapeton (did I spell that right?) and Pembina? I've fished the old muddy since college for big cats, occasional wild sauger runs at Drayton, and assorted eye's and what not, but I never imagined walleyes that big in the southern stretch of river. I fished Selkirk last fall. Are those "greenbacks" you're referring to? I can believe any size walleye is possible up there. Have you seen the pictures of the fish on the wall at the bait shop in downtown Selkirk? Every die hard angler in the world should see that just once. Mind boggling!!! Tell me more about Red River walleyes. You can probably tell by my ramblings that my curiosity is peaking. I've been a true river rat since I was 7 years old - I'll never change..

Well put it this way. I released a 15+ in the Wahpeton area, is that far enough South on the Red for you? Not much farther North a year later I choked on netting a walleye that made that one look small in comparison.
There are huge walleye all up and down the system with the larger majority seen in the Canadian end of the Red, but not all of them.

Walleye in the 30-35" range have been caught or test netted all up and down the river so work on high percentage areas at high percentage times and you may find one.

That is my method, hit them when there hot. Concentrate on peek areas, feed them big, they eat big because they can see big better.

Good hunting!

I really like to hear about the big 'ol gals being caught on the mighty Red. I'd have to agree with Ed on his idea of "tight to those breaks" (and in some cases in the front of bumps/or/humps) with bigger chartreuse jigs (over 1oz.) with big shiners/whitefish as bait. The only other thing to add is that the big gals don't come all at once but require "time" on the water (hard or soft).

      Arrowed my first in the fall of 1968, just a few days ago it seems. Last year did not go. This year not going. I could write a book with memories from archery and rifle and slug.   Withdrawals are bad but been slug hunting with son in laws family for 3 years now.  That is helping the addiction big time.  I wish you all, whatever kind of kill that deer method you prefer,  a nice smelly gut pile.

      Hows the action. Got out a couple times and it was fun.

      Thinking of trying a few spots like this tomorrow. I’ve covered the whole lake so hopefully that works. I know once I find em I’ll hammer them 
    • eyeguy 54
      I have good luck on a couple spots with steep drop offs and weeds close to the drop. I anchor shallow and cast out to the drop.

      There were a PILE of big fish caught out there today, but yeah, that wind was still pretty tough despite the warmer temps.  My boy caught a 28 1/2 and a 29!  He bested his best on the same day!

      Awesome! Sounds like fun. Staying on a lake I’ve fished a fair amount last few years and struggling. Can’t get nothing to go. Fished from 4-16 ft. Been reading some articles to use electronics to mark fish in deep water (20-30fow) so maybe I’ll give that a try tomorrow. Tried trolling for pike to and again nothing. Also tried bass fishing and yep your right nothing. Man I’m really struggling but I’ve never fished this late in the season so that doesn’t help. But I don’t think I’m the only one struggling quite a few anglers out and didn’t see any fish caught.

      Hi my name is Royce. I was a live bait addict for many years and just could not kick the habit. Every day I would have to stop at the bait store to get my fix and every night I would come home with minnow and wax worm juice all over my fingers and a lot of fish to eat and let a lot go that were YUUUUGGGGGGGe 😝😜🙃

      I was on the windy side of a small lake for the action. hit 3 spots calmer and the 4th paid off. my money spot was a snooze. LOL anchored in 10 to 12 feet and bobbered down 4 feet above the weeds.  1 inch gulp alive minnows in emerald and chartreuse on a 4mm widowmaker ice jig again. the bigger ones were biting crazy light. any small change in bobber action and set the hook for the nicer fish. Smaller ones smacked it. gills and crappies acting the same and in the same area give or take a few feet. Pinched off a weight from a different bobber and put on the comal ( I am really liking these). Just the yellow stayed above the water and easy to see the nibble. Had a boat next to me with round bobbers and they struggled bigtime.
