I have been coming to Red Lake for the past 5 years and have enjoyed the information that has been posted on this site. I will be coming back on Thursday the 23rd for a weekend to the home state. I know the fishing has been good for some and not so good for others. Did the fishing get that good this past weekend that everyone is still fishing or tight lipped? Where are the reports? I have always watched and read this site along with Rogers and Morts and enjoyed the posts. Any help would be great. Thanks, Can't wait to get there!! laugh.gif

Thanks Take'em. Is there still a day bite or just evenings and mornings? I don't mind catching a few perch and the through back walleye or eye's if thats all we do during the day. Just love fishing with a couple of friends and maybe a few beers. smile.gif

Catching varied here for us and our guest over the weekend, going out of the eastside and southshore. One group of three got zip on Thursday, but then Friday they headed out to the same area, just moved 100 yards and reeled in their limits of crappies ranging from 11" to 14". Another group got limits, two caught 17 between two days of fishing and lost some, two had 14, some caught two each, two others had four each, and all the way down the line to zero for me and only one for the other half. The folks I talked to said that the first crappie was reeled in between 6:30 and 7:30, and some stayed out on the ice until 11 picking some up here and there. For the most part, the crappies were hugging the bottom, but a couple of anglers said that they were getting theirs about 3' off the bottom. During the daytime a few keeper perch were caught.

Good luck to you!

Thanks Drake. Sounds like everyone had some fun. Is the bite still on red glow frostee's with some blue and green glows mixed in? That's always been the best bet for us.

We stayed in a sleeper friday and saturday night. Friday we caught 23 from 7 pm to 3 am. They were still biting but I could no longer tie knots.... Saturday we found a few to fill out our limit (there were three of us) We fished out of Hillman's in a few differant spots 6-8 miles out. Caught pleanty of Eye's and perch as well perch were not big enough to keep. Biggest walleye was a 25 incher (my biggest on red) biggest slab was 14.5 inches most between 13 and 14. My only dissapointment was I didn't get to the WW until sunday night and the place was M T, beer was still cold though.

Went up to LOTW on Sunday afternoon and was able to catch 5 keepers

      I agree I have not heard much on here about the area.  Headed to shields on Saturday,  hope it pans out.

      I have a Striker Hardwater and the Wife has the Clam Rise suit. Both are great and we chose them based on how they fit, each body is different and you will find different brands and even product lines within a brand will fit different. I would try stopping by Thorne Bros and see what they have in stock to try on, they might have more upstairs if you dont see your size.  Float suits dont go on sale much other than the Blaine Ice show, St Paul Ice show, Black Friday and then after the season.

      This are premium Rods from Alpha Angler. This company is the rod sponsor for 2017 Bassmaster Angler of the Year Brandon Palaniuk. The Rebound: is a glass cranking rod. Best I've ever used. Fantastic feel. The Zilla: is a a perfect all around Rod. I primarily used it for pitching jigs. I've owned these rods for less than a year they were purchased in spring 2018. I just have way more tackle rods reels etc. Than I have room for. Rods new retail together are $475 I'm selling them as a package for $320. Or individually for $175 each.  I'm in the north metro area. And am willing to drive a reasonable distance if need be. Feel free to make an offer but a serious ones only. Also I have photos of the Rods if youd like just email me and I'll send then to you. Let me know!  Email me at  [email protected]

      I posted some pic's of the heaves on above Fishing Reports info post.   Pretty interesting if you never seen anything like that.   CRUNKY CRUNCHY sounds of ice on rocks last night as trucks drive on an off.....always fun.   T

      Went out just to check ice depth today, measured 13.5" on lake one a couple hundred yards out from the public access in town.  No snow left, very slick, and lots of heave action on a majority of the shoreline.

      Me too. Got out few times before but nothing really going on. This was my best outing yet for me this season. Hoping to have more of these days!  I'm glad you enjoy my videos. You can follow my channel if you want to see all my videos. I only post some on this site.
