Hey Ed,

Anything worth giving a shot on the Red over the weekend?

Not sure yet?

Wacky weather is of no help at all. If so, it will be at points South of you and I Scoot. If you’re up for a short road trip, we may be on some eyes from shore this weekend? Hit and miss yet at best?

Sunday sounds better then Saturday for weather so far, who knows?

Not long after my last post I started getting sick. I've spent a bunch of the past few hours "chuckin'". What fun. If I don't feel better it looks like I might be stuck sitting inside doing nothing (I suck at doing nothing- I hate it.)

Scoot do you remember the last place we chatted in person? Think now?

I have started to get some 16-23" walleye there. Not a bunch, but a few. I had only 1 in the keeper range the rest were in the toss back range.

Remember only 2 under 18" a day now if you go. (I will be watching close to make sure folks fallow the spring conservation slot laws too. As will the boys in green with the long eyes.)

I did my best of Bombers in green and white. Jigs sure should work if a guy has some nice fat fatheads to tip them with. I didn't have any live bait on hand when I tested the spot out.

Maybe see ya there tonight?

Ed,

I didn't see your post until now otherwise I'd have been down there with you. Sounds like maybe it's time to start banging the shorelines looking for some eyes- yeeeeha!
Actually, I don't know if I'll be able to get down there for a while. I'm doing the in-law/parents thing over the next couple of days, then I'll hunt snows on Mon, work Tues and Wed., then it's up to the Rainy to give the spring run a shot.
I hope I can get a boat in up North- I've got a buddy coming from Wis. and another one coming from Ariz. who are both regulars up there with me. Both have been reading internet reports on the ice and we're all skeptical, yet hopeful, about getting a boat in. I guess we'll just have to wait and see and be hopeful.
Thanks for the report. I'll be down there as soon as I can be. As for the limits and size restrictions- I'm not one to worry about. I put 'em all back in the Red (no, I don't think there's anything wrong with them, I just love to catch 'em). I can't wait to get down there and give it a shot.

You didn't miss too dang much tonight Scoot.

A few 12-13" eyes and they were real touchy to hook.

Bring on the sun, more sun = more fun I think?

I will be headed South this weekend, may be better down that way?

See ya on the muddy banks soon.

      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.

      We we're done by 7 this morning.  Were set up over field goose decoys now.

      Pike very active with 6-12 feet running crank baits ... also Bass !!   Been using various crank runners some off deeper weed lines 12-15 feet.    Fun trolling and having to stop because the rod was smacked hard 😃     Cret

      Anyone hear how fishing is on Rush lake for musky? Thanks
    • Bryan P
      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
