Don't have much time to relate everything, but things are really good on the Red (north). There is some vehicular traffic (nuts)but most good spots are accessible via quad/sled/foot etc. Jigs, minnows, and the classic structural elements are holding monsters right now....eg. 7 fish 7-13.5 # in one outing---GOOD. I'm off for whitefish tomorrow on another Manitoban lake. Happy holidays and best of luck with those greenbacks!

Sorry Ed but I've been very busy on the river and hence no free time at the moment to fish with you frown.gif . Fishing is good smile.gif and if the weather were to cooperate a little it might also be a little more pleasant (we're in a bit of a cold snap). Fish have set up a bit deeper over the past two days >15ft. and are starting to become a bit more lethargic ---- sort of sounds like a cold front in the summer eh! I've had my best luck with large salted shiners on a rattle jig (blue/white) set up. Others I 've had out have done very well on prop. style jig (3/8 oz.green/chart)with a large live chub. I really like that "Kerchunk" feeling we've been getting the past week or so and hope it'll continue a bit longer. Maybe we'll see some of you folks out the next week or so.... if not good luck and best wishes for the New Year!

Things are going quite well for this time of year. If the weather holds we're in line for one of our best winter seasons we've had in a while --- but I'm just a youngin' eh! But seriously, the walleye bite has been good am and pm along breaks, humps and the odd rock pile. Saugers seem to be going most of the day. Shiners have been just as good as live bait and the jig reigns supreme(in all the typical Red River color combos - green/charts/orange/charts/blue/white silver/gold. Mobility is also a significant tactic to solving the winter walleye puzzle at this time of year. However, if a low pulls in or if it goes really cold in a hurry the bite will slow a bit, but that's why they call it fishing (and not catching)!). Get out and wet a line. The seasons a bit to long to just sit there....

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..

      Good fishing in the Blue Earth river too. Also, a short drive to Rapidan can be productive.

      Welcome to the site @eg_gophers2124 I have never even seen the lake but these screen shots might help. Navionics Judging by the Lake Finder report, it’s a super clear lake; 17-20 foot clarity but with plenty of weeds. A couple shots of the weed report. Starting from scratch, I would head to the southwest area.  The southern basin has better looking structure too. You might do well simply working edges of the emergent weeds with spinnerbaits in low light and weedless frogs or spoons up in the weeds when it gets to be mid day.  Crawler under a slip bobber on the weed edges could do well also. It’s purely guessing on my part.  Hopefully someone with experience on the lake will chime in. Good luck!

      walked that creek to the river many years!!!  again home area!!!!

      Bring your spinning rod and fish for walleyes or white bass at the confluence. Wherever the river is pounding the shoreline fish the current breaks for big flatties. Heavy fiberglass rod with a sturdy baitcaster and 50 lb power pro line will be effective. Fish the head of snags for channels. Setup just like a Lindy rig for them with 1 oz to 5 oz no roll sinker and a big live bait like a 7" bullhead or even larger sucker for flatties. Use cut strips of bait off a large sucker or something similar for channels. Frogs can be good too. Have fun.
