I haven't been able to fish the Red for a while. Anyone given any of the usual spots a shot yet? Anyone have any insights about the river at this point- water depth and clarity?, water temp?, what's the scoop?

I fished the North Dam today and it seems a little early still. Lots of ice floating in the river still. We'll need some warmer weather and sun to get the fish moving the right direction.

He's back!
I must be one poor fisherman- I was there on Wed. and didn't have a nibble. Fished both cranks and jig + minnow and didn't have a sniff. However, it was raining and pretty ugly when I was out there. I'd like to give it a go when it is sunny and nice out. I'll try give it a shot this weekend.
By the way, I noticed one other set of boot tracks when I was down there. Looked like about a size 11 or so- I figured it might be you, eh?
Thanks for the heads up.

Ya know that spot you ice fished this winter and I was down the road a ways and we missed each other, that spot Eh. The one YOU were at, not me. I have found a few on the move there in the past few days.

They don't appear to be much farther along then that yet, need some sun I think to get them on the move more. That water warms and chills fast effecting the bite and moods just as fast. It is still warmer then the main channel, so they are sniffing around.

Thanks for the tip, Ed. I'll give it a shot in the next few days. Been up at the Rainy and freezing my butt off for a while and haven't been out around here.

      I had a good opener, also with ten. We should have taken a lot more, but shooting, jitters, and other factors prevented it (as usual). For us, Sunday was really slow, but still managed to bag a few.

      That's a good idea thanks.

      We love it when we catch a muskie, but it can be such a grind!

      Just got back from five days on the lake. We were fishing for walleye in the end fun with limits already taken. We are on an island and the dock bite was very good. Slip bobbers with either rainbows or chubs. Also, walking the island and casting tubes was also productive for larger walleye. Off the point of the island, under dock, near rocks. I guess that means we caught most of our fish shallow. Wind was our friend, to a point. Didn't like some of the gusts but wind blown shore and points were key. Follow the wind.   Smallmouth were not shallow. We did work some shoreline but did not find those fish up shallow. We did run into some smallmouth on the points, etc deeper while fishing for walleye.

      I had a good opener.  Two friends and I got 10 ducks and with some better shooting we could probably had 12 or 13.  It was significantly better than the last two openers and certainly better than I expected.  We had nice mixed bag of wood ducks, mallards, teal, and even got a shoveler.  It was very comfortable out there too.  Was nice not to sit there and roast away in my chest waders this time.

      If that is a new 2018 rig I would call the MFG and see what they think?  If you have a warranty on it, that may invalidate it?

      We have been up since Saturday and all we got are small walleyes.  Very windy today.  Hope wind goes down

      Quite a bit slower today. Only saw 2 teal between yesterday and today, which  really surprised me and most of the wood ducks seemed to have moved on. Didn’t stick around long enough for the geese. Hope everyone had a great weekend and good luck!

      How is it going today 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Carp30, Vermilion is starting into the fall transition period now that the water is cooling down. The bite can be either great or tough during this period. Yesterday we caught walleyes as deep as 44' and as shallow as 10'! Location and time of day is the key! We caught walleyes deep using short snell Lindy rigs,( 2 ft.), with minnows, The shallow walleyes hit best on the same rigs using 1/2 crawler. Sand and rock mix or transitions are the key areas right now. Necked down areas that have deep water and adjacent sand flats are almost always good now. Cliff
