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.

      Has anyone fished North Lake before? Lakefinder says there’s a navigable waterway there via Gunflint Lake. However, the map shows rapids in between Little Gunflint and Little North, with a short portage. Just wondering if I could get a boat in there.

      Have got out 3 evenings so far.  Seeing deer only one of those evenings.  4 deer Monday evening with a fawn buck and a small 1 and half old buck coming within range.   Woods and fields are changing fast.

      Good opener on the water in the Mankato area. 3 wood ducks and 2 geese. Little guy’s first opener, we left at 10:00 and he wanted to stay longer than I did!

      As many of the other dog owners told me the third hunting season is when it comes together for lots of dogs. Finn did much better today and he got to watch a veteran dog again. I am excited to keep getting finn out hunting 
    • monstermoose78
      We got two ducks. We should had more but it was fun shooting. I need to keep my face on my stock. I had pass on many birds as another group moved in on top of us. I had 5 woodies locked up and I drew a bead and I saw the other guys faces. No shot as i would killed them or wounded them. They knew we there but did not seem to care.
    • monstermoose78
      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. 
    • MJ1657
      We we're done by 7 this morning.  Were set up over field goose decoys now.
