Any luck by The Red Door

Recommended Posts

Trytti

We will be fishing out of The Red Door this weekend. Just curious if anyone had any luck on the north end for eyes and perch. I am guessing go 30'+ during the day and on top of the flats at night? How are the roads out to the flats from the Red Door?

Thanks!

Might be to late for ya but some friends of mine are out of the red door and fished from last wed - sun and did not have much luck. There house is not quite where they want it and they did not scout around in the portables. They are on the first break and for all I know a few perch and that's it.

Good luck and post the report when you get back.

Thanks for the report. It sounds likewhat I am afraid of. I am gonna see if they will move my shack out to the flats so we have a few more options. It is gonna be awfully cold to try to fish out of the portable.

Not sure what super cold and a full moon will do to the bite.

Just got back from Red Door. Fishing was Slow. We got there yesterday about 3 pm and fished til about 9am this morning and caught 1 perch. Saw a few perch on the Aqua View and two pout. Saw no walleyes. Talked to two gentlemen in a private house next to ours and they say up until a few days ago they would catch one or two walleye a night and a handful of perch. Last night they caught 3 perch, one keeper.

The positive is the house was nice and clean and the people very nice. They were honest on our way out.

As always it was fun to get away with friends for a night.

Thanks for the info. Were you on the first break or out on the flats? I had them move my shack out to the mud today but it doesn't sound like there is a whole lot of difference either way.

Hey Trytii. What flat did ya move to? I have a perm at Red Door also. I fished out of my portable Wed. on the Fletcher. Saw several Walleyes, but couldnt get'em to bite. Caught a few jumbos though. I talked to a guy in a wheel house. He told me the bites been better at night for walleyes. I havn't been able to try it yet.

Not sure where they were going to move me too. I told them move it to mud off of the flats. I am kind of a rookie so I kind of left it up to them... Thanks for the info, I'll give you the report when I get back. Just leaving for the weekend now.

Sorry I didn't see the post earlier. Good luck anyway.

The house we were in was about 100 yards or so past the first break. Straight out across the bridge take a right maybe a half mile west of resort. It was a mud bottom there about 27' of water.

The put us out by "Resort Flat" It was about 4 miles out. Pretty slow weekend. I got one really nice, fat 26.5 Incher and 3 jumbos and that was about it. We were in 28 Ft Mud. saw a few more perch and one eye on the camera but after about 1pm Sat we didn't see hardly a thing. At least the shack stayed warm!

We were out Friday and Sat nights. Not a thing at night other than my brother broke off on one due to bad line. At night seemed like we were reading a lot of either baitfish or plankton or something on the Vexi. Saw a few fish on the Vexi friday night but couldn't get them to bite.

Hey Trytii. I was on the Resort Flat yesterday from about 11AM till 6PM. Had the camera down. Saw 10 walleyes and tons of small perch. Couldn't get the walleyes to commit though. Im sure things will turn on once this arctic weather leaves. I'll let ya know when I get back out. See Ya.

Thanks for the report fish eyes. I am heading back up on Friday and the weather report looks pretty good so hopefully the fish cooperate. Some buddies of mine used my shack on Thurs. and had some perch, a 26" Eye and a 21" eelpout.

I'll post a report when I get back.

Well I wish I had a better report. We had 2 eater walleyes, 5 jumbos, 3 eelpout and 3 tullibees. Saw some walleyes on the vexi but didn't want to bite. Had one break off on a rattle reel this morning. Most all of our fish were in 28-30ft off the flat a little bit. Fished all over the flat in 20-22 ft of water and all we got was one 16" eye.

We're heading there Saturday-Sunday. Do you know if they move their homes this late in the game? I'm hoping we have better luck than what I'm reading now - as everyone does!!!!

Where do they have the shacks set-up ? are they on the sand/rocks ? or do they have them out to the flats ? depth ? I rented the 16 hole deluxe house for a little beer drinking/ card playing, I am heading up there Friday for the night. We will fish the mud in the morning, then I suppose around noon when we get to the shack, and it will be about getting the drink on grin.gif

Winona is Winona, not a whole lot has changes. Lots of bars, fishing and hunting. Kind of the perfect place, at least for me! grin.gif

I doubt they are moving houses. They want to start moving houses off this week. I have some friends up at mine right now and when they are done on Wednesday they are moving mine off because I can't make it this weekend.

Most of their houses looked to be on the flats. But some were still on the first break. I'd guess with the warmer weather this week you might do OK this weekend.

      Just learned that someone broke through on Reno last night. He was pulling his 7'x12' fish house with his ATV and dropped the back of his fish house through on 3" out in the middle of the lake. Fortunately, nobody was hurt and he was able to somehow get it retrieved this morning. I guess they had to go over 100' from the front of the ATV to find 10" of ice.

      Seeing a lot of greenheads and swans around the metro.  It seems every bit of open water is packed.  I took advantage of some opportunities to film some trumpeters and put a little holiday cheer to it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQu99MI1Y6Y

      I found a old trolling motor at a garage sale for like $5-10 bucks, cut the head and motor off of it and used the pole and bracket to clamp on the ducer on my last canoe.

      It should be able to I can shoot through my kayak if I wanted. Canoe should be the same. There great units. Good price and a solid fish finder

      I just saw this online.  What would be the best way to mount the transducer?  Could it shoot through the floor of the canoe?   Humminbird® PiranhaMax™ 4 Sonar PT Portable tranducer, case, rechargeable battery and charger Tilt-mount base makes the screen easy to view 256-color 4.3" 480 x 272 screen DualBeam explores down to 600 ft. 2,400-watt peak-to-peak power output Featuring a portable transducer, portable case, rechargeable battery and a wall charger, Humminbird's PiranhaMax 4 Sonar with PT delivers a compact package for on-the-go fishing adventures.

      Anybody know anything about this lake? Just north of Ely.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Welcome Rick! I use a Humminbird piranha max 4 (non DI). I mounted it in a vexilar Genz case and I use the genz soft pack on it to help protect the screen from scratches. I used it all last summer in the kayak and it worked PERFECT. I use the humminbird suction cup mount and it works well. Even used it on a smaller aluminum boat and it never came off even on plane. This setup to me is ideal for anyway wanting a cheaper rig that works very well IMO.
    • Rick Bancroft
      I want to set up the canoe with a portable transducer so that it can be used in the boundary waters and portaged, etc.  Anyone have ideas on the set-up and what sonar would be a good choice?   I probably don't want too hi-tech so I can conserve battery life.
    • iiccee63
      Going out in 2 hours! And Sat. too for half a day....
    • Mike89
      looks like the lake is showing more ice movement!!  be safe all!!
