Only given 3 cranks for the Red

Recommended Posts

Scoot

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.

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.
    • tacklejunkie
      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?
    • gimruis
      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.
    • gimruis
      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
    • Mike89
      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..
    • Rick
      Good fishing in the Blue Earth river too. Also, a short drive to Rapidan can be productive.
    • Wanderer
      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!
    • Mike89
      walked that creek to the river many years!!!  again home area!!!!  
    • Rick
      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.

      Thank you Vermilliongold. This took care of the problem.
