What kind of baits are working now?

I'm coming this weekend and just wondering what they have been biting on lately.
(minnows? waxies?)

Fished Saturday and Sunday last week from 2 to 11 each evening with minnows and glow jigs. Filled out in no time when the sun goes down. The walleye are making their comeback. Caught at least 30, with some very nice ones mixed in. I never thought I would say "Crap, another walleye", but I wasn't the only one fishing in our group to say it. They are very healthy fish. Keeps you occupied waiting for crappies to find your hook. The fishing is hot when it starts.

Baits??? I bet I get critisized for what worked for me....That's the way it goes here....

Use whatever you want...and if it has a big hook..then it's even better...use a medium spoon, a plain hook, a piece of string, a minnow, a wax worm, a maggot...did I mention a piece of string???

Anyone ever notice....the fish don't really care...they just seem to want to eat???

I mentioned once that the fish are hungary...someone had a problem with that!

Well guess what...They must be hungary if they are feeding....I have an FL-8...and if you do too, you will notice the Crappies race for your jig and slam it like it's the last supper....They will come from the bottom to 5 feet in no time to get a meal....and if they miss it...they'll be back.

Ohhh....Let me say...I like to do R&D on my fish....that's Research and Developement....Helps me learn and make myself a better Crappie fisherman....When I clean my Crappies...I cut their stomaches open to see what color they have fed on....and what types of forage they have been eating....Red Lake Crappies....Have had empty tummys...at least in my 3 trips...But I have to remember that means jack squat to these verterans of the lake...3 trips is nothing....although I caught my limit and practiced C&R all three times......It was just dumb luck, but I feel pretty good about it at any rate.

Hey, I love Red Lake...I am an addict...and I will be back....I thank Red Lake and the resort owners for their help, detirmination, and all their efforts to make a trip to the big Pond a positive and enjoyable experience.
Hats off to you guys!

I look forward to dragging the boat their this spring and this summer.

Back to the smaller local lakes for me for now....Ice out has me itching.

Good fishing to all, and above everything, remember...Keep your jig horizontal!

Last night Tim (WW's Dad) did it again,, a limit with just a demon and no minnow. About 2 weeks ago Chaunce's boy tried to get them with just a minnow on a swivel, he couldn't get them up the hole. smile.gif

Kelly_p, I met you Sat. 6th. I was with four other guys and we all caught our limit of slabs.
It was my first time on URL and like the limit that I caught... I'm hooked. I want to bring my Dad up there but won't be able to get away until the 27th or 28th. Should I bring a 4 wheeler or a boat?
