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]

      Good pics have been hard to come by.  But...   Yes, these are water pics mainly but we’ve hunted fields too. The field hunting has been tough for us with the size of crew we have and the age mix.  Good times; good people.   Besides, a guy that likes divers needs a little water tossed in.  I saw my bucket list can but wouldn’t water swat him to claim him.  Didn’t get a chance at him on the wing.

      Nice! Thx for sharing.  I have so many weird stories like that and it's nice to hear another strange one!  Great story and memory.

      Tough conditions this morning. Got tired of picking up decoys that were tipped over.  Post some of your waterfowl hunting pics Leech.

      Just so we're clear. You left this kind of harvest to drive around in 70 degree weather for 4 hours a day, why again? 😕  
    • leech~~
      Oh then your right, the DNR wouldn't be able to tell what it is until at least June!  😏  😆

      Snow?!  Hadn’t heard.  I’m still in Nodak and it’s been sunny and 69-70 degrees for highs!  Big wind yesterday but not so much today.  Birds are around but you have to look for em.  Been driving about 4 hours a day scouting.

      Holy snow!! It was coming down this morning around 8 am. Had geese flying but could not see them. Got buzzed by many flocks looking the wrong way as I could not look into the wind and snow. Had plenty close enough but never fired a shot. Off to the rifle range tomorrow with the old man.

      Well was able to get out in the kayak this afternoon as the wind went down was out for about 15 min and around 4pm while making my usual trolling pass on the green weed lines. I hooked up with a 36” 8.5lb northern! On a #6 Fire tiger flicker shad again using my baitcast rig with 30 braid. I paddled to the beech as I had no net or anyway to land it from the yak. As I was coming in my rod slipped out of my rod holder. I said ohh $&@! And figured well that’s a rough day. But for some crazy reason my rod and reel combo floated!! No sure how but it stayed right on the surface. I had no extra floatation on it either. All I can say is I think I had some special people watching over me today😉Retrieved the rod and locked it in the holder and made it to the beech and fought it the rest of the way in. By far the biggest fish from the kayak for me and one heck of a story. Well I think that was a great way to end the season.

      It's a small lake. Have ice fished out there in the winter. There is some decent crappies out there.  Never fished in the summer time. I want to say max depth is 25-30.
