Yes I had some good luck last Saturday with a silver hammered spinner, crawler harness, 1/4 oz slip sinker in St Albans Bay and off Seguchie point. Lots of 20-22 inch fish. Seemed like they wanted this more than the lindy/leech setup.

I was up on Saturday and we caught 55 walleyes on spinners tipped with crawlers behind bouncers. We didn't have any hogs but we did have six slots. The fishing is incredible.

I agree with Ron, just an incredible bite. I have never seen anything like it. Spinners, lindy, leech, or crawlers they are all equal with non-stop action. Numbers boated are exremely high for everyone I talked to this week-end. Simply amazing.

Yep... the bite is incredible. Finally caught a nice perch, so we know theres at least one in there. Also caught a tagged fish, and the tag popped out while she was thrashing in the net. Thought about sending it to the DNR with a message "20 inches... tasted **** good."

The bite is truly incredible.

I fished the North End in the morning using strictly leeches and caught some very nice walleyes. Very healthy looking.

We noticed a bit of a hatch going on and in the afternoon I switched to crawlers. We fished closer to Big Point on the east side. We had 5 other people fishing with us and they all used leeches. We caught 22 fish and 2 carp from 2:30 to 5:30). Of those I caught 8 walleyes and 1 carp all using crawlers with spinner.

My Dad switched to crawlers and caught 3 eyes using crawlers. along with missing 5 (his hook-set isn't what it should be). 11 eyes were boated out of 21 total using crawlers. It was 4 1/2 guys using leeches and 1 1/2 using crawlers (Dad 1/2 time using each).

This was right after a small hatch earlier that day. I would guess that crawlers may be a bit more effective if you have a mayfly hatch going on.

      That makes sense.......I think eventually upper red could turn out some 10lb fish. I pretty much figured this was a joke.

      Kelly come on....I live by the Iowa Great Lakes.......and can say the exact same thing you posted. While people may not directly make money from them....money is being spent and brought into the county which was not generated in the county helping the county and people in the county.    I get the "trash issue " no matter what is done people will litter. It will never stop. It needs to be managed, the situation isn't unquie to Upper Red, it's just not managed at upper red like it should be.

      What you are forgetting about is that a very, very small percentage of the people living in Beltrami County make any money from the fishermen on URL. Many of the people making money off the fishermen on URL do not even live in Beltrami County. But ALL residents of Beltrami County have to pay to clean up the garbage left by the fishermen. If a person owns property on the shore of URL how do you suppose they feel about having to continually be picking garbage up off from the beach? If a person lives 10 miles from URL how do you suppose they feel about having to pick up the garbage from the highway ditch in front of their home?

      I never go to the south shore so I'm definitely not an expert but I think this is some type of "contest" where you draw a piece of paper out of a bowl or something like that and the "weight" of your "fish" is written on the paper. A few years back there were Illegal northerns listed in one of JR's "contests" and the CO's looked into it and found that it was just some type drawing.

      The problem is they still need some ballast water on the Great lakes "When the winds of November come early..........."  😉

      Thanks, Coast Guard..... for not making ships flush their bilge at sea.   For decades after the problem was apparent.

      And at first ice, drop them down the hole....  😀🤣

      Especially early season while you still have green weedbeds. You hit the nail on the head.
