I've never fishind the Red, but I'm going to try it this weekend. Any tips?

I've heard lindy rigs with a heavy sinker is the ticket. Some have said to toss a rapala. Others say to pitch a jig with small minnow.

What tackle would you guys suggest?

How heavy of a sinker do you need?

How much tackle will I loose? wink.gif

I was thinking about fishing near the toll bridge in North Moorhead -- Is that a good spot.

HELP ME!

Thanks a Mazillion

Here's what I've got for ya- the spot you mentioned is a great one! However, I've not done much there this year. On low water years the tribs seem to be better producers than the Red itself. I'd suggest snooping on the tribs. However, the spot you mentioned might produce too???
Three main rigs to try- 1) wide wobble stick baits (Reef Runners, Bomber Long A's, etc.) 2) jig and plastic/minnow 3) slip rig with 1/2 to 1 oz sinkers. Try both straight hooks or floater rigs.
You'll lose tackle!!! If you go down with only one of the three rigs mentioned above, you may go home with none. Bring extra gear.
Minnows are the bait of choice right now. Water's warming to the point where you may catch cats below the dams now. If not now, pretty soon.
Good luck!

Thanks for the tips -- looking forward to hitting the Red --

Can a guy keep any fish right now? Is anything closed on the red?
