The Red up here has been nothing short of "slow" for much of January, but if the past two mornings are any indication, things are definately changing! The past two consecutive mornings produced some decent action for walleye. Yesterday morning (or day two) not only produced the best day I've seen this year for numbers, a buddy of mine ended up icing his very first trophy 'eye, a "hefty" 28.5 incher! During our three hour session, we ended up with 14 fish, nine 'eyes and the rest saugers. No one particular lure presentation seemed to be dominate, jigs produced and so did Salmo's Chubby Darter and Zipper.

Are plans are to head out again Sunday morning with Canuck and another friend, hopefully we'll have something good top report.

Catmendo and Canuck,

Good report and good luck, guys! I wish I had to time to get up there again this winter, but don't see it happening. I've already started my workout regimen for those beautiful cats! grin.gif I always look forward to that.

Marine_Man and myself and our dads just got back from from Selkirk. The trip wasn't bad we got some nice fish but not alot. Marine_Man did pull a 10# 29" walleye and his dad got a 9.5# 27" walleye both are personal bests. It would have been nice to have some more numbers but we will take the quality.

You guys got up there again I see. I wish I could make another trip up there, but I'll have to wait until next year. I see those greenbacks are still hanging around, it should get real good once March rolls around.

Hey Marine_Man,

Nice fish. I'm actually working right across the road from you right now in the Marketing Services building. We need to meet and get on some fish once this darn arctic blast subsides. Much nicer last week in Cabo San Lucas that's for sure. I work with V. Hoistad in the parts writing dept. Swing on in sometime and introduce yourself or I'll come over and find you some afternoon. I assume you're in the engineering building??

We should coordinate for December 06 and make it up the same weekend. Maybe even carpool from Fargo. We've got a while though.

I realize that most have limited budgets and more times than not a road trip of any significants usually means a "once a year" outing! However, as good as December is up here on the Red, come late February and March can be incredibly interesting out on Lake Winnipeg.

To date the action out there has been sporatic even on the so-called good days, but we're hoping to see a dramatic change in feeding patterns any day now. Once this cold snap disperses, we plan to put in a good effort on the lake. So for anyone that might be interested, stay tuned! If the action picks up, I'll let everyone know about it!!!

I have spring break from march 13th to march 17th. Just curious about prices for licenses, guide services available (if needed), equipment to buy/bring and the like. I would be coming from Fargo and would love to get into some walleyes. Thank you in advance for information.

I've been a fulltime professional fishing guide for more than twenty years now; (wait a minute, that just reminded me how old I'm getting, Yikes!) and in my opinion you don't need a guide up here providing that you're willing to take some sound advice!

Anyone who is staying with me at "Cats" always gets first hand advice as where the action is. If the action heats up out on Lake Winnipeg, you will definitely need good advice as to where........she's one big lake!!!

Like I stated in my last post, over the weeks to come, my plans are to spend much of my time and effort on the lake rather than the river. Last March the action was explosive for numbers and size out there and there's no reason that this won't repeat!

I've had this lifelong fascination with Lake Winnipeg and her resources. Incredibly, the province of Manitoba has never promoted this absoutely amazing fishery other than promoting the commercial gill netting industry. Because this system is literally stuffed with huge walleye and pike, it has incredible potentials as a sport fishing venue, especially during the winter months.....

      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....

    • muskie-mike
      My wife agrees about the pizza...was the best...  
    • Kettle
      Fished a bigger lake, fish or at least the eaters are on the mid lake humps. Water Temps 68 degrees, freezer now has 6 total as I've been eating fish often. Tomorrow we chase the 30" walleye for catch and release.
