Upper Red this past Sunday

My son and I fished with Bear Paw on Sunday and had a great time. He had us follow him out to 14' of water and we started about 7:30 am. The fishing was constant until we left at noon with our limits of hugh crappies and some nice perch. We also had 9 walleyes with the largest at 18" and of course they were released. Thanks Bear Paw for a great morning! Red glow jigs in the shape of a demon with a crappie minnow did the trick, 2' off the bottom.

Sounds like you had a great trip. We did the opposite of you. We fished out of Hillmans Friday in 14 feet of water from 3:30PM to 8 AM Sat. We kept 26 beautiful Red Lake crappies. They bit all night. They were going pretty good at midnight. Pulled stakes and went to Lake of the Woods after that. Kept 15 walleye and saugers.

What a great weekend.

I want to thank everyone for the reports and sharing your info with us on this site. It made for a great trip.

Were you the ones out in the shack at the end of his road??

We were in his small 2 man sleeper just about 150 yards before that, green toyota and a couple sleds on a trailer sitting outside. I had my portable over past there on friday for awhile but the fish were hitting so well inside the house there was no reason to move around.

We hit the road around 10:30am to beat the snow back to Duluth.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
