Congrats on the nice walleyes. I am a first timer to the Red and never seen such nice pics. I am from the Fargo-moorhead area, and was just curious if the fishing is that good my way. I was also curious what kind of bait do you guys use, and what depth do fish. Any information about the Fargo-moorhead area would be great. Congrats on the nice "eyes" again.

Walleyes,

Just about nobody's got the kind of 'eyes they have up there in the numbers they have them! Selkirk is the land of true hogs. However, we've got some exceptional ice fishing opportunities here on the Red. That being said, if you're not an experienced dude on the Red, I'd suggest hiring Ed Carlson for a day trip or two to get the scoop on the Red and its tribs. It's well worth the money and you'll learn more in a day than you would otherwise learn in a year. I'm certainly not the world's foremost expert on ice fishing the Red, but I know infinitely more from fishing with Ed. If interested, say so and I'm sure he'll see your reply and get back to you.

I might have to make a trip up there this year. Every year I say I'm going to, but this year I might have to break down and go. Is the bite good all through the winter? It would be nice to get a chance at one of those beauties.

The best time on the red for green backs is sept-feb. most big hawgs come out late in the fall.try trolling the flats along the channel with cranks or jigging, we had a great time this year with awesome fishing at first ice by selkirk, my shack is at sugar island but i have not used it in 2 weeks as fishing is slow there right now. Still pulling them up north on the river in 20-30'+ of water.the lake fish as always are a stunning electric green color. right now we are spending our time perch fishing on lk. manitoba and waiting to get out for some big northerns!

      Saturday Norwegian Bay was 50-51 degrees. After the cold wind the sun showed up and baked it all day Sunday. By Monday afternoon Temps were around 62 with Black Bay reaching 65-66.  We left Tuesday Morning so I'm sure the fishing is suddenly on fire. I'm surprised that when I walk down the seafood aisle in the grocery store that the shelves don't suddenly go bare.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)
