Trip to Red Wing?!?!

Recommended Posts

fishingsfinest

Just throwing this out there as a feeler on what someone might think. I have started to fish the river and enjoying the quality of the fishing here in Minneapolis, but have never been to Red Wing or Alma. Was wondering if there was a crafty veteran out there that enjoys fishing and would be open to taking a newbie to the area and teach them a few things. I have access to a boat if need be, (16ft. Lund Rebel SS with a 25 Yamaha 4-stroke and trolling motor)or would be willing to tag along with someone for the day. I am a golfer by trade so fishing time is precious. With that being said, I would fish in just about any kind of weather or any day off I can.

Or also, is the area pretty easy to navigate around in. I have an H2O iFinder and plenty of electronics, and it can also be fun to just try to learn the area on my own. Ideas?

Thanks a lot!

Phil

Save yourself alot of wasted time and money and spend at least half a day with a good guide. They will teach you more about fishing the River than you can learn on your own in a lot of years. Not my place to recommend a guide, but check at Evert's and they will line you up with a good one, or I'm sure people on this forum will.

Appreciate the response...as I thought about it at work yesterday, I thought that a guide would be the way to go. Never have had a guide before, so that will be a lot of fun!

Thanks again.

If you are planning to hire a guide I would try to get Jmes Holst, Dustin Stewart or Turk Gierke. Turk is on FM and is a St Croix specialist but he knows Pool 4 well and is a great guy to fish with. The first two guides concentrate on Pool 4. I've fished with James many times and highly recommend him. All three guides are novice friendly and will be glad to answer any questions you have.

Turk may have some room yet, but the others I know are filled up for the spring season.

I head down there fairly often this time of year. Send me an email. I think we could work something out. [email protected]

      I believe the hog hunting farm is called Ridge Hunting Preserve, it is east of Little Falls the phone number is 320-745-2337 I know people who have hunted up there in the past and had a good time. They said the hogs were running wild in a 20 or 40 acre fenced area but it is not usually easy to get one but there is a high success rate if you have the time to work the area. I am going to confirm the location/name and will probably hunt there this year. Russian Boar are supposed to be pretty tasty and there are meat processors near by to drop the hog off at.

      I went out after the wind died down. Caught 23 with a mix of eyes and saugers.  12 to 15”   With no slots. Fished 12 to 27’.

      For Vermilion, the Lowrance lake insight data is identical to Lakemaster, 3 foot contours.
    • delcecchi
      Maybe you should check the various sites that sell mapping stuff?   What is the Lowrance offering?   Is there a different Navionics choice?

      You're correct trumy.  I just posted this on that page.  Thank you.

      Hi everyone, I will be heading to Echo Lake, in the superior national Forest, the middle of June.  Never been there, but the small amount I found on this site says it's a good fishing lake.  Does anyone have past experience on this lake?  I'm targeting walleye mostly, but Pike and crappie are always on my menu.  Are there any lure colors that have worked well for you?  I'm mostly a live bait fisherman.  Any presentations that worked well?  Any advice will be greatly appreciated with this lake, and I will report back how it went/what worked.  Thank you everyone.

      The echo I'm thinking of is by crane lake that's where I would post my questions

      Any action out there today?

      May want to post this in the BWCA, Duluth.... regional forum.  You may get more responses there as that's the area the lake is in.   Goid Luck!
