Suggestions on how to Fish Upper Red for the first timer

Recommended Posts

Grabs

Planning a trip to Upper Red, potentially staying up there the 29th and 30th.

I have never been up there, but I do know the bit is pretty much only from 5pm and into the evening. How late does the bite run? All night or just for a few hours?

What is the best way to Fish N' Stay?
Pull up my Ultra Shack? (lots of gas money)
Fish out of portables and stay in a motel or cabin?
Rent a sleeper house?

What would you recommend?

Thanks in advance.

Rent one of Kelly's sleepers if you can get it. If not,

Drill tons of holes and keep moving around until you find fish. If you drill enough holes, somtimes you can find a day bite. Either that or you will be so tired from drilling holes you are forced to consume grin.gif

Fishin4aLivin,
Those dates have an opening left.
So everybody knows Friday/Sat. 4 & 5 person sleepers are all booked all winter.
There are still openings left Sundays through Thurdays.

Kelly, the dates I was looking for were Sun the 29th and Monday the 30th,...was there some confusion?

We might only have 2 people. Do you have anything open?

I guess we might be open to the Sunday the 22nd and Monday the 23rd, if there is something there.

Grabs.
The 29th is booked full. The 30th has a 2 person sleeper open.
I'm not taking any reservations before 12-26. I have big houses I would like to have a little more ice before I head out there. Besides it's gonna be a long winter and I wanna have some energy and attitude left when the fishing gets hot in Feb. and March. smile.gif

Kelly, thanks for the info. After speaking with you I think we might wanna try and book a second trip for later in the year. Possibly early March. Are you booked in March on Friday's and Sat? Let me know what you might have open in March.

      Anyone have any luck around stuntz bay seven sisters area lately?
    • jkrash
      I heard the guides are on to the walleye bite on the west end, finally the fish have returned and it appears there's a few good year classes.

      @Tom Sawyer Its not supposed to be that way.  Is it??  It stinks when everything else gets in the way of spending some time on the water. 😒

      I couldn't agree more Jarrid,  modifying the possession/ catch limits would probably help preserve and enhance the fishery. Several years ago when I was still living in the St. Cloud area, there was a lake outside of Albany that a  couple of year classes of Croppies came into their own. After  the increased pressure of both one hard and the following open water season  that lake saw, it was like  the Dead Sea after that.  Personally, if I find an active school, I won't keep my limit, just enough for a meal with the family.

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....

      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.
    • Borch
      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.   
    • osok
      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)
