Finally! Red Lake!

Recommended Posts

OMG! Been waiting all season and finally I get to come up to Red. Been working too much, while pondering the thought of pulling up a slab/eye out of the whole at the office. Got a booking this weekend fri/sat/sun. Now after reading the same post for so many times. I need to clearify some stuff, if you all can help...

1. Extension: Will be cruising out and about in a portable during the day, will a 12" extention be enough on a Jiffy STX to reach through the ice?

2. My main artillary consist of Red glow and green glow:Varmits, Rattln Buckshots, demons, and hooks. Will that be enough to tackle the weekend?

3. Weather Conditions? Will I survive hole hoppin with a Big Buddy in a portable(clam 2000)?

4. From your experience's, when are the "HOT BITE" times, in order to plan accordingly of when to eat at sleeper or should I just keep fishing?

5. 2 lbs or 4lb or 6 lb line?

6. Last, Jack's or Captain?

Any advice appreciated. This is a very much anticipated trip (sadly probably 1st and last for this season). Thx guys!

#4 Hot bite can happen at any time sleep when your tired eat when your hungry

The person you booked the sleeper should be able to answer the questions you have asked. They are out there everyday.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
