Red Lake first time


Recommended Posts

I am planning on going to Red Lake either this friday or next friday for the first time ever. I am wondering how the fishing is, and if you predict it too be better either one of these days. I am also planning on renting a house, does anyone know of a good place. One suggestion I have is Roger's, any comments. there will be three of us going thanks for the help

You can also try West Winds, Hudec's or the Waskish Minnow Station. All three have houses for rent. I think that the Minnow Station rents theirs through West Winds.

We saw some really nice crappies from some guys who were fishing on the north side of Red Lake this weekend, one group of two had twenty and there was a group of eight who managed to get 40. Both sets were going out from Hudecs. We also did some fishing there last Tuesday and used one of Hudec's ice houses. You would probably want to call Hudec's in advance to be sure that there is one available.

You like Darby? Was there on Saturday. Went out of West Winds. Did real well close to the pressure ridge, 45 from 1 to 6:30, not fast and furious but steady. I don't know what the pros say but it seems to be the usual, "right place right time scenario". I talked to other crappie chasers who bombed or only caught a couple on Saturday. If you can find em' try some "red" minnows, they worked really well for us. Good Luck

I would suggest west wind. I've gone ut of there three times and always have caught fish. The worst my dad and I have done is 23 fish the other two times we got our limits.

      Measured 6" good clear ice today about 50 yards off the north side of Moccasin point. Walked out for a little ice fishing. Remember ice conditions vary around the lake, depending on sun exposure and current in channels/narrows. Be cautious, safe and verify your local ice conditions.  Directly off the Moccasin point boat landing, in the channel ice conditions looked poor. Picture is from Northside of Moccasin point I the early morning  when ice looks the best

      Finished the 23 waterfowl season over Thanksgiving. Got to hunt two days of the long weekend. Saw a modest number of ducks, and harvested mallards, bluebills, and ringnecks as the water began freezing over during the weekend. One of our tougher seasons with different migration patterns probably due to unusual weather patterns with constant fluctuating between well above average temps for a period and then almost instantly well below temps before going well above again, and so forth. Still will cherish the memories with family and friends and relive the sights and sounds of out on the water during fall. Will be posting ice fishing reports in the fishing report clubs as soon as the ice is safe. Happy Holidays everyone.

      Thanks for sharing this exciting career opportunity with Orvis in the Minneapolis area. It's great to see companies looking for passionate individuals to join their team, especially in the world of fly fishing.

      Shocking, I know.  And what may be more surprising is that one need not head westward to find them either.  There is a thriving, reproducing population of them right here in Central MN.

      Cosmo and I took the afternoon off and went pheasant hunting in the fresh snow yesterday.  Tried some new spots that I have never hunted before.  Raised 28 total.  I got a double at the second spot.  Two roosters flushed simultaneously and I dropped both of them.  The first one one fell dead but the second one went down as a cripple.  After retrieving the dead one, I went over to where the second one went down and after some good dog work, Cosmo came out of a patch of grass with it.  Then the final spot produced another rooster for a December limit.  Hunting after a fresh snow is quite often my most productive and enjoyable hunt of the entire season.

      Did you ever trade the 30-30?  If not would you consider selling?

      Caught some crappies on the north end of Osakis on Nov 15th. Pulled from 25-27 feet. All laid on their side in the live well. All kept but one.
