Foster House Part II

Recommended Posts

suick100

Just got back from another Red Lake adventure with Pat Foster at the controls. Seals everywhere but managed to dodge most of them, except this one young and sassy one who would not go back down the hole. We used the Patented Club Red Seal stick and that finally worked to get rid of him once and for all. Anyway, yes the fishing was GREAT! This time the crappies, were visiting us. Myself and two other guys ended up with 24 Slabbys, biggest one measured exactly 15 1/2 inches and the rest were your typical Red Lake 14 incher, which always amazes me, compared to any other lake, these fish are absolute monsters. We also got our limit of nice 16 inch walleyes, some perch and no big Gators. All in All another awesome trip and Foster came through once again. Thanks again for the great house and service Pat. Had one Red Lake rookie along and seeing his eyes pop when that first slabby came up his hole was priceless. I will return with my son on Presidents Day weekend and maybe my son will catch the big gator this year. Last Feb 06, I caught a 22lb. Northern within 15 minutes of arrival. The Triangle and the Seals live ON!!!!!

I know which house he hasn't moved in the last few days. cool.gif It isn't by you "huntingislife". I think you should move about 1/2 the way back towards Hillman's. Where you are at now doesn't seem to be happening yet. Usually it is late Feb. and into March before we find them there in big numbers.

I was thinking about moving this weekend. I wasn't sure if I should move that far back in or maybe just back to 6 miles.

Hi Melanie, Go ahead and put the posting on Pats Website, we had a great time up on Red Lake and always do. Except, those darn Seals continue to harass us when were reeling in the crappies, they are really a pain and Pat needs to get Bigger Seal Clubs. Anyway, my buddies took all the pictures on there digital cameras, so I will get those to you as soon as I can. I have not yet entered the digital age, still have the throw away camera. Hey Kelly, keep Foster in line until I return on Presidents Weekend. FISH ON!!!!!!!!!

Hi Jm15, We had the best luck with the glow demon hooks, green, red, and blue for the crappies. Walleyes it didn't seem to matter, I caught alot of them on a plain red hook or anything that glowed into the evening hours. Hope this helps and good luck to you. Like Kelly said, Bring lots of sweets for Foster.

      When we go to Quetico, barbless or mashed down barbs is mandatory.   To tell the truth I haven't noticed that we lose more fish with barbless than barbed.   Not catching muskies though.  Pike, walleye, bass, lake trout. 
    • delcecchi
      Vermilion might be down a little, but not much.  Your lakes might be different.

      Is that a gulp worm?  I am not on Osakis but cant fish with live bait without the bass, sunnies, and perch hammering it instantly.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      i havent been out in for atleast a month out there but check out walleye dan's facebook, he usually posts a report weekley; https://www.visitbrainerd.com/blog/fishing-report-july-16-2018/

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?
