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.

      I live on the north side of Cass on the Pughole. We had 30 inches of ice out in front of my dock yesterday. Pughole is the flowage between Kitchie and Cass. I'm 200 yards off Cass and the current is pretty strong there. Top few inches was pretty mushy. Nothing happening as far as fish yet. But they are coming. Jumbos move in soon. Also seen a truck out off of Star Island on Monday evening. I imagine they have more ice out on the main lake than I have. I'm for sure going to be out ice fishing through next week at my place. Ice hasn't even begun to pull from shore at my place.

      Hey there DUCKHTR . No need for a guide to hunt divers on Leech or Big Winnie . Your spots that you hunted early season on Leech will also be good spots for later season . I don't duck hunt anymore , but I used to hunt a lot on Winnie , mostly all my hunting there was on the north end Third River Flowage . Travel north from Deer River up Hwy 46 to the sign that directs you to turn left , then travel west on that gravel road for about 10-12 miles to the 3rd river boat landing . You should have no problem launching your boat there . From the landing outward is a lot of tall reeds on both sides of you  , this flowage widens out as you go farther out ,and depending on your wind direction on the day of your hunt , you can just pick and choose a spot  , all the way out , and down to Mallard Point where it really opens up to big water on Winnie . You will need to buy up 3-4 dozen Bluebill decoys , and also use your Mallard decoys you must already have . We used to have great shoots in that area of the lake . In the dark of the morning when your heading out you may have other hunters shine a flashlight your way , they are just letting you know that they are already set up in that spot , don't worry , there is plenty of room for many different hunting groups in the flowage . Once you get a few hunts below your belt , you will then have a better understanding of some of your favorite spots to set up ..  I had one particular spot we used to call the "Meat Market" because we used to kill so many ducks there in that spot . Just put out your decoys in the spot you choose , and then  pull your boat into the reeds parallel to the water , wait for legal shooting hrs , and have at it . From my recollection the Bills would start to trickle down from the north around the 20th or so of Oct .. I I hope this helps you out somewhat .

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.
