Fishing Report

Well my partner in crime and I spend the day out on red today. We only ended up with 1 crappie and caught a couple eyes and perch. We would have caught a couple more fish (maybe crappies) if my freind m(Bigtrout) could have been able to set the hook. But missing 6 out of 7 fish isnt that bad. Tell ya what though he was a pro at the bottle bass!!!! But now to tell ya what I have found on red today. The fish are really picky it seems. Also seems like they are VERY skiddish. First off we were 1.3 miles out and we were in 12 1/2 feet of water. I was marking fish all day at about the 1 to 2 foot mark on the vex. It seemed that any time that you moved a hook in the house and there was a fish on the vex that it was gone. Now I did this just for all of you I tried this theory. 8 times that I had a fish on the vex I moved lines in the house, now the only reason I did that is for you guys so I could tell you not to do it wink.gif(Or I couldnt not do it because I wanted fish) But we were using a varity of things and that did not seem to trigger any fish. If I was going to give advice to someone out there today I would say go with an ULTRA light set up and a super lazy minnow and just kick back and wait for the action to come to you. Good Luck FellFree to ask me any other questions!!!

Yup, wrong forum. Thanks Kelly, do you know where I can find a copy of it? I tried the Barnes and Noble website but found nothing.

Our group got back from red yesterday evening. First time to the lake and had a great time. We used bear paw guides and went out of westwinds. We ended up with 12 crappies and 27 perch for 1 and a half days. I have no idea how many walleyes we were able to catch, but boy were they nice and healthy looking. Bear paw did a great job in helping us find some fish and west winds bar is a great time later in the evening. We will defenitely be back again. The weather could of been a little warmer however grin.gif

Fished Upper Red on Saturday night, one of the sons came up and wanted to try to get some slabs. Hit the ice around 4, got away from everyone, first spot nothing then moved a bit and drilled some more holes and got set up. First crappie came through around 5, had a decent bite until around 7:30, we ended up with 12 between the two of us with some measuring 14". One of our guests ended up joining us out there and he reeled in six. Dropped the line to the bottom and slowly reeled it up to about 1.5 to 2 feet off the bottom, but too much jigging had the crappies scattering. Blue and green glow worked the best for us.

Fished Red Friday from 3 PM to Saturday 8 AM. Managed 2 - 13.5 inch crappies and one nice 38” pike (released). Two other crappies were lost at the hole. Perch were biting along with half dozen or so walleyes.

I was out of Hillmans - all the way to the end of the road and to the north ½ mile.

Regards,

Chris

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?

      Drove through Annandale last Tuesday and was really bummed to still only see the old cement slab at Little Jim's. Hope they can get it built-back-better! 🙂

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick

      Maybe the bamboozler will end up being like every fish story, some old timers holding their hands out as wide as possible to demonstrate to a youngster just how big it was....
