Only given 3 cranks for the Red

Recommended Posts

Ed and others,

If you only could bring three cranks for fishing the Red down on our end, what would they be? Brand, size, etc.
Also, what three patterns are the go-to's in the fall?
Scoot
P.S. Ed, sounds like you're fishing with Darren on Wed. Good luck and give him lots of crap- my buddies always do!

Cool, thanks.

Been able to catch frogs over the past few days? I've been out twice and have seen 4 frogs total. It's been really windy, so that hasn't helped.

No, I'm not jealous. However, I noticed that you and your "Bro" went fishing at Orwell a couple of times. I'm sorry I didn't get your message I'm sure you left on my machine. I may have been able to meet you there. After all, it's close for me to go there.

Hmmmm.

Dear Jealous Weasel,

I'm thinking about going there early next week. I gots hot tip! Interested/able to join us? Maybe you could even bring your canoe? It would be tough for you on a week day, I'd imagine.
I'm also hoping to fish Big D one more time this year too. Maybe you could swing that after practice some night?

To answer some of the questions before. Football is going well and so is school. Great kids for both. Football, we're 4-0 so off to a good start. Schedule doesn't get easy, though. We play in Glyndon on Friday night, if interested.
Kids, wife, and dog are doing well. Dog is learning how fun it is to retrieve and is starting to use her nose well. I'm excited about hunting birds again.

As far as fishing during the week: Thursday nights are usually best, because it's pre game night and we are usually done by 5:00 or so. That's about the best I can do. Best time of the year to fish, so I try to get out when I can. I plan on fishing tomorrow night- Thursday. Any plans?

I'm stuck in town every Thurs. until about 7:00 so anything other than river or night fishing is out for me.

Scoot,
Do you work for a living? Are you a guide on the Red River? How is that you seem to be always fishing? Are you married? Do you have kids or other family members?

Signed,
Just Wondering in Ottertail County

Dear Mr. Catfish,

Bite me.

How's school going for you? How about football? How's your lovely bride and kids? I haven't heard from you for a while.
FYI- I'll probably be up at the Rainy for one of the first two weekends in Nov. Interested? It'll be over gun season so if you're planning to do that you'll probably be out. Also, I've heard how you shoot- so you better plan on using all the days provided for your season.
Just for the record, I've fished less this summer than any summer of my life (at least since I was in diapers). However, I'm trying desperately to make up for it by hitting the river for an hour or two a couple of nights a week. Is it just me or do you sound a little jealous?

Scoot my report on how last night went is S...L...O...W.

You friend and I fished tell 1 AM and the walleye were doing a very good job of avoiding us. The only fish we caught were goldeye, a drum and 2 or 3 piglett cats.

The company was good and I enjoyed meeting and fishing with him. We will be on the same waters this weekend too Eh. wink.gif

Water is very low, chunked out a NEW prop on a thumper, can't believe that chunked so darn easy! Really liked that new prop too, great power and smooth, way too brittle though, by the looks of it today. Bummer!

So I get to put my old reliable spare prop back on (that has 3 different blade pitches to it) tell I get the others back from the welding shop, again.

Who ever said you get rich guiding NEVER did much night fishing on rivers, this I am sure of!

wink.gif

Scoot that offer still holds if you can make it.

I wish I could take you up on the offer, but I'm a definite no-go.
I plan on trying those two spots you told me about by your place tonight. Maybe I'll bump into ya.

Well you didn't miss too much on this trip Scoot, it was a slow bite. We had fun but the fishing could have been much better.

It will get better soon, the weather was too nice and the wind switched from N to S, bad deal.

I got the same report from my buddies. Sounds like everyone they spoke with struggled too. Good Thurs, bad after that.
I wish I could give you a report on how things have been going on this end, but no such luck. I haven't been out in a week or so. I hope to go out on Wed. night- if you're bored and looking for a fishing partner, keep that in mind.

      I will try to make it Nick.  Should be a go unless a I have a grand kid birthday party to attend.

      My transducer issue was during open water.   My hypothesis after several transducers was that freezing them after having been in the water damaged them.    Once I stopped letting them freeze then they stopped going bad.   Maybe some water was getting into them and causing damage when it froze.   The transducer in my Minnkota  US2 is fine with freezing.

      I fished by the Lester area yesterday n today. I was in 75-78’ water. Had one school of coho’s chase my jig all the way to the bottom of the ice. I looked down the hole and was amazed by the fish just swarming around my jig and just nipping the tale. That was my very first time out there. Didn’t catch any, but seeing those fish made it all worth it. At Lester there is an Easier way out there if you go to the south side of the river. It’s an easier trail to follow out onto the lake. There must be some open water just north of there. There was a lot of mallards flying around and landing. ?

      I don’t have what your requesting , but you can do just as I did to verify such changes by calling the Mn DNR at 651-296-6157 ...

      When you rubbed your hand on the ducer before, did you notice a thin layer of ice on it?  I’m guessing No, with how you described the situation, but that can happen with a ducer that’s below freezing when you dunk it in the water.  It ruins sensitivity.     You’re open ice fishing, yes?  Not in the warmth of a house?  Like the others mentioned, could just be your graph doesn’t like the cold.  And it’s always better to have the depth range locked in than on auto.   Good luck Bob.
    • Walleye Guy
      Do you have a link to an article or regulation that shows the changes?
    • Wanderer
      Yeah, I think we’ve had enough.  The silver lining for me is I DONT plan on fishing this weekend.  But I do have to ready my sled for next weekend in ON.  I’m hoping the snow isn’t as bad up there.  Strange to think it’s a possibility but yeah, that’s how much we have in MN.   I kept my face plastered to the plane window going down to Denver on Monday.  The snow line peters out around the NE/CO border.  The only people not complaining about snow and cold at home were from CA!   I thought there was a noticeable lack of fishouses out on our MN lakes too.  I hope to get a good view of Mille Lacs when we come into Brainerd.  It was amazing how small the lake looked on the way out! 😄
