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.

Should be a lot of fun. I wish I could take you up on your offer. Hope for a North wind and good luck.

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.

      Saw on MPR that this year had been even warmer than 2012.  If this weather pattern continues, Lake V will be ice out before the March 28th date from 2012.

      Awesome fish. Way to go.
    • gimruis
      That is a true giant slab around here.
    • chucker1101
      I did a lot of crappie fishing in 2012.   I'd say April 1 is a conservative guess. March 25 seems doable. Depends on the rain and the wind in March.

      Do you park at The Landing or have someplace closer? That would be a hall from The Landing!

      I hate to start this thread early, but this ice doesn't have much of a chance this season. It's about half as thick as it should be, there is no snow cover to protect it from the March sun, and it continues to be abnormally warm. Let's hear those ice-out predictions.   I expect the smaller bays to be open by the last weekend of March with the main lake soon after, likely prior to April 1st. Earliest ice-out on record is March 28th, 2012.   On the plus side, the spawn be done long before fishing opener. Combine the reduced walleye harvest with the longer growing season, and this should translate into a better walleye class for the lake.

      I walked into my place late Friday night. It was beautiful - a full moon, no snow and single digits so the lake was making all kinds of noise, wolves howling, and the kicker.....no wind. The only difficult component to walking was the ATV and snowmobile impressions left in the ice. Every once in a while my foot would catch a rise in the ice and I would stumble and almost fall. Besides that, it was a perfect night. Unfortunately I had a schedule to keep, otherwise I would have started a midnight bonfire to stay out and enjoy the evening even longer.
